    The gang makes and breaks 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 adores. (Well, everyone except Monica, who can't get past the feces-throwing thing.) Phoebe faces a difficult decision when she meets a shy physicist who's thinking about giving up a fellowship in Minsk to stay with her. I liked this one people didnt like the monkey but I thought Marcel made up for some good little storylines and jokes in season 1. It was also good to see Janice back in this episode little did we know at the time that she would appear in evry season of Friends.
