    Okay. This was a really important episode for Phoebe and for Ross. There are 3 storylines in this episode, they are; Phoebe meets a shy physicist named David, and falls totally in love with him, and him with her. His colleague, Max gets himself and David a fellowship in Minsk, and David has to face a difficult decision whether or not to take it and leave Phoebe behind in New York. Ross is feeling lonely, living by himself for the first time in his life, he decides it isn't cool to get a room-mate, so instead gets a monkey. Everyone except Monica loves him. Meanwhile, its New Years Eve and they all make a no-date pact which everyone except Ross breaks, but none of them turn out. Chandler with Janice, they break up. Monica with Fun Bobby, who turns out to be not so fun. Joey with Sandy, who makes out with someone else. Rachel with Paolo, who abandons her. Phoebe with David, the love of her life.
