六人达成协议,在迎接新年的派对上不带伴侣。派对上除了罗斯,人人都忘了约定,带了伴侣参加。

Ross:Come here, Marcel. Sit here. (Marcel wanders off)

Ross:Just a smidge.

Phoebe:David's like, y'know, Scientist Guy. He's very methodical.

Monica:I think it's romantic.

Phoebe:Me too! Oh! Did you ever see An Officer and a Gentleman?

Rachel:Yeah!

Phoebe:Well, he's kinda like the guy I went to see that with. Except, except he-he's smarter, and gentler, and sweeter... I just- I just wanna be with him all the time. Day and night, and night and day... and special occasions...

Chandler:Wait a minute, wait a minute, I see where this is going, you're gonna ask him to New Year's, aren't you. You're gonna break the pact. She's gonna break the pact.

Phoebe:No, no, no, no, no, no. Yeah, could I just?

Chandler:Yeah, 'cause I already asked Janice.

Monica:What?!

Ross: C'mon, this was a pact! This was your pact!

Chandler:I snapped, okay? I couldn't handle the pressure and I snapped.

Monica:Yeah, but Janice? That-that was like the worst breakup in history!

Chandler: I'm not saying it was a good idea, I'm saying I snapped!

[Joey enters, his shoes have bells on, which jingle as he walks. He is wearing a long coat.]

Joey:Hi. Hi, sorry I'm late.

(He removes the coat to reveal an elf costume)

Chandler:Too many jokes... must mock Joey!

Joey: Nice shoes, huh? (He wiggles his foot and the bells tinkle)

Chandler: Aah, y'killing me!

(Marcel knocks over some kitchen tools)

Monica: Ross! He's playing with my spatulas again!

Ross: Okay, look, he's not gonna hurt them, right?

Monica: Do you always have to bring him here?

Ross: I didn't wanna leave him alone. Alright? We- we had our first fight this morning. I think it has to do withmy working late. I said some things that I didn't mean, and he- he threw some faeces...

Chandler:Y'know, if you're gonna work late, I could look in on him for you.

Ross: Oh, that'd be great! Okay, but if you do, make sure it seems like you're there to see him, okay, and you're not like doing it as a favourto me.

Chandler: Okay, but if he asks, I'm not going to lie.
