Ross tries to warn Rachel of what a bully Tommy is, but she does not believe him, assuming he's just making up the stories regarding Tommy's outbursts of anger in order to split them up so he can have Rachel all to himself and considering that Tommy had learned of Ross' past with Rachel and witnessed how awkward they were around each other to his own bemusement, it is likely that he guessed after witnessing this that she would jump to this conclusion if Ross ever tried to warn her what a bully Tommy really was.

However, his aggressive true colours are exposed to Rachel after she, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler and Ross witness him lose his temper after Joey and Chandler's pet baby chicken urinates in his hand and, unable to keep his anger in check, he screams at both it and their pet duck when its quacking irritates him further.

A mutual attraction develops between Kathy and Chandler, [e ] which manifests as a kiss; [e ] after Joey finds out, Kathy decides to leave New York for Chicago, and declares her love to Chandler.

Chandler starts to suspect that she is cheating on him and confronts her about it. Kathy is offended and gets into an argument with Chandler.

Joshua Burgin Tate Donovan: Joshua appeared at the same time that Jennifer Aniston and Tate Donovan were dating each other in real life. Chip Matthews Dan Gauthier: A man who many years prior to the events of the show had attended the same high school as Rachel, Monica and Ross; although he was outwardly friendly and charismatic enough to become the most popular guy in the high school, he is depicted as being an inwardly selfish, careless and unpleasant person who emotionally hurts and plays immature pranks on other people.

Monica and Chip meet again and, seeing that she has lost a lot of weight since he saw her last and is now a very attractive woman, Chip asks her out, much to her delight as she still has a crush on him. Rachel is upset when she learns that Monica intends to date the man who once cheated on her, but she eventually allows this to happen out of sympathy for her formerly obese friend.

She does however react coldly when she answers the door to him when he arrives to pick up Monica, and asks him, "So Chip, how's Amy Welch? Wow, I haven't seen her since Monica's dream is soon shattered when she realizes that not only is Chip as unpleasant as he was back in high school, he has not matured and done nothing to better himself since then.

Rachel is attracted to him but plays hard-to-get by pretending not to be interested in a housewarming party he is throwing. Katie Soleil Moon Frye: As the episode name suggests, she's a woman whose play-punches are all-too-hard. A seemingly nice person nonetheless, she appears to like Joey a lot, apparently bemused but also highly amused by wacky antics from him such as "breadstick fangs" but she's so energetic that whenever she playfully punches him on the arm she accidentally hurts him, but seems to be oblivious to this.

When Joey actually tells her, she thinks he is merely making good-natured fun of her small size. Joey eventually decides he wants to break up with her as a result, but worries about hard she will hit him if he in the process of doing so upsets her, but Rachel gives him an easy way out when she retaliates in anger after Katie playfully punches her and accidentally hurts her also by kicking Katie's ankle, and when Joey refuses to stick up for Katie upon witnessing this she, as he had hoped, breaks up with him and leaves.
