Gary decides to ask Phoebe to live with him. She doesn't think it's a good idea, which makes him sad, so she ends up agreeing. After some changes of heart (back and forth) they finally move in together... until one morning Gary shoots a bird that's chirping outside the window. Phoebe breaks up with him. Ross and Joey throw a ball back and forth without dropping it for a couple hours; soon it becomes a contest, joined by Monica and Chandler. Around the tenth hour, they invite Phoebe to join; unfortunately, she doesn't feel like playing. Rachel spends a thousand dollars on a pure-bred, hairless Sphinx cat, like the one her grandmother had when Rachel was a kid. Unfortunately, this cat is not very nice, and a scratched-up Rachel ends up selling the cat to Gunther.
Rachel: All right listen. Um, I just bought something, I'm not sure [Monica's] gonna
like it, and it's gonna seem a little crazy. But this is something I wanted since I was a little girl.
Ross: You bought Shawn Cassidy!
Rachel: No! I wish!
Monica: You paid a thousand dollars for a cat, when you owe me three hundred?
Rachel: Well, I was gonna let you play with it.
Monica: Oh my God, the cat's made my eyes water! Don't... don't throw it to me! My
vision's been compromised! Oh God! Okay. Okay. It's okay. Man, that was close.
Chandler: Yeah, you almost overreacted to something.
Joey: I don't know who made you the boss, all right? We invented this game!
Monica: Please! I made this game what it is.
Chandler: Not fun anymore?
Gunther: Thanks Rachel. And... and, uh, don't forget, you... you can come visit her anytime you want.
Rachel: Oh good, great! I'll... I'll keep that in mind.
Gunther (to Ross): Hey, so what is this? Some kind of snake or something?
