    This is the 7th episode of Friends, and of the 1st season. The main storylines in this episode are; There's a blackout in New York City. Chandler is trapped in an ATM vestibule with a supermodel called Jill Goodacre during the blackout, he can't believe his luck and this makes for some very funny moments. Meanwhile the rest of the gang are in the building during the blackout. Phoebe has her first song, one of the more memorable ones. While in the building, Ross gets attacked by a cat. Phoebe and Rachel hunt down the owner, while they do this we are introduced to Mr Heckles, their weird neighbour. They find the owner of the cat, a sexy italian hunk called Paolo who Rachel goes out with, depsite not being able to understand a word he says. Over all, one of the best Friends episodes with some of the best lines.
