Friends Episode 110 - The One With the Monkey
The gang makes a pact to celebrate New Year's Eve without dates. Ross compensates for his loneliness by getting a roommate -- a monkey named Marcel whom everyone but Monica adores.
While performing at Central Perk, Phoebe confronts some noisy boys and ends up dating one of them: David, a rather shy physicist. Their relationship develops well until he gets offered a grant to go to Minsk, and doesn't know what to do.
Everyone breaks the no-date pact except Ross: Phoebe brings David; Joey brings Sandy, someone he met while working as an elf in a department store; Rachel plans to bring Paolo, who's flying in earlier than expected; Chandler snaps and asks Janice; Monica invites Fun Bobby while Ross just brings Marcel. However, no one ends up with their date -- or monkey -- at midnight.
