Frank Buffay Jr.

Frank is the half brother of Phoebe Buffay, named after their father, Frank Buffay. Phoebe discovered Frank on one of her attempts to find her father, who walked out on her when she was a child. It turns out that her father had left more than one family. Frank is perhaps even stranger than his older sister - he has a punctured lung, was arrested for stealing birds eggs, owned a dog called Tumor and believed that 'massage parlor' was a euphemism for a brothel, thereby wrongly assuming his sister was a prostitute. A half-brother is a male sibling with one shared parent. ...

This page is a candidate for speedy deletion. ...


In the episode 'The One With Phoebe's Uterus', Frank returned, now married to Alice, and asked Phoebe if she would act as a surrogate mother to them as they are desperate to have children, but they are not able to do so. Phoebe agrees and in 'The One Hundredth' gave birth to triplets: a boy, Frank Jr. Jr. (Chandler asks if the name should be Frank the Third, and Alice says "Don't get me started"); and two girls, Leslie and Chandler. The baby Chandler was originally thought to be a boy. Frank and Alice said Phoebe could name the other boy baby, and she decided to name it after either Chandler or Joey. After they fought about it, Joey called "Chandler" a "non-name", to which Chandler mocked offense and, to give Chandler back his confidence in his name, Phoebe decided to name "her" baby Chandler. Frank and Alice decided to name her Chandler anyway. It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into surrogacy. ... Identical Triplet Sisters A multiple birth results when more than one human baby is born from a single pregnancy. ...


Frank appears in a later season trying to convince Phoebe to take one of the triplets because he needs to sleep.

Giovanni Ribisi also showed up in an early episode in Season 2 (episode 6) as an unnamed guy on the street who had dropped a condom in Phoebe's guitar case and later came back for it because he "needed it for an emergency". Later in Season 2, Giovanni reappears, but this time as Frank Jr. (same season, episode 20) with very similar characteristics to the former character. Because of this, it is possible (but unconfirmed) that it is Frank Jr. who drops the condom.

Ursula Pamela Buffay

Ursula was a fictional character from the popular television sitcoms Mad About You, which ran from 1992 to 1999, and Friends, which ran from 1994 to 2004. She was the twin sister to Phoebe. A fictional character is any person who appears in a work of fiction. ... A situation comedy (sitcom) is a genre of comedy performance originally devised for radio but today typically found on television. ...

Phoebe Buffay (also Buffay-Hannigan) is a fictional character on the popular US television sitcom Friends (1994-2004), played by Lisa Kudrow. ...


Ursula originally appeared as a ditzy waitress in the sitcom Mad About You, working at Paul and Jamie's favourite haunt, Riff's. When Lisa Kudrow was cast as Phoebe, one of the main characters in Friends, which was also set in New York, the character crossed over. Ursula's apartment is in SoHo while Phoebe and her friends reside in the Village. Mad About You was a United States sitcom that originally aired on NBC from September 23, 1992, to May 24, 1999. ...

Soho is an area of central Londons West End in the borough the City of Westminster. ... The Washington Square Arch Greenwich Village (pronounced Grennich Village; also called simply the Village) is a largely residential area on the west side of downtown (southern) Manhattan in New York City. ...


In Mad About You, Ursula was a particularly inept waitress, often forgetting orders entirely. Her character was more fully developed in Friends. Ursula often appeared mean to her sister who is still upset by the things Ursula did to her when they were young, for example, throwing her Judy Jetson thermos under a bus and stealing her first boyfriend. This drove a wedge between the sisters and the estrangement continued into adulthood. Although, following the various deaths/abandonments/imprisonments of their parents, Phoebe ended up homeless by her mid-teens, Ursula apparently did not; how the sisters came to be separated as minors was never revealed. The Jetsons was a prime-time American animated television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, and aired from September 23, 1962 to March 3, 1963. ...


Naturally, Phoebe became worried when Ursula dated Joey. It was revealed that Ursula had always known the truth about her and Phoebe's parentage; she even claimed to hold a suicide note from their adoptive mother that revealed the identity of their birth mother. When Phoebe asked to see the note, Ursula showed Phoebe a note that she (Ursula) had hastily written up. In Ursula's word, her version "got the gist" of the original suicide note, which she had apparently lost in the interim. Ursula also sold Phoebe's birth certificate to a Swedish runaway. Matt LeBlanc as Joey Tribbiani in Joey Joseph Joey Francis Tribbiani, Jr. ...


On one occasion, during the intro to an episode of the show, Jamie Buchman from Mad About You walks into Central Perk and confuses Phoebe with Ursula. Since both sisters are somewhat airheaded, she never sees the difference and writes off her not knowing who Jamie is as one of Ursula's quirks.


In later years, Ursula worked in the pornography industry, using her sister's first name so she was credited as Phoebe Buffay. Notably she appeared in a film called "Buffay the Vampire Layer" [6:14 – "The One Where Chandler Can't Cry"]. Other titles include "Sex Toy Story 2", "Lawrence of a Labia" (does exist as an adult film), "Inspect her Gadget" (punk/pop band from Oakland, CA), and apparently others. However Ursula has probably since retired from pornography once Phoebe collected Ursula's checks (they were in Phoebe's name).

A sex toy is a term for any object or device that is primarily used in facilitating human sexual pleasure. ...


On the last episode of Mad About You, it was revealed that Ursula will become the Governor of New York in the near future.

During The One Where Heckles Dies, Mr. Heckles dies while banging on the ceiling, and leaves all his worldly possessions to "the two noisy girls upstairs." During this episode, Chandler Bing, while looking through Mr. Heckles' possessions, draws parallels between his own life and Mr. Heckles'. It also emerges that the slightest noises could be heard (greatly amplified) from Mr. Heckles' apartment, thus making it seem like he wasn't as grumpy as he originally appears. The One Where Heckles Dies is the third episode of season two of the television situation comedy Friends. ...

Estelle Leonard

Estelle Leonard, portrayed by June Gable, is Joey Tribbiani's withered, chain-smoking agent for his acting career. Although she did get Joey his breakout role as Dr. Drake Ramoray on the NBC soap opera Days of our Lives, she was not very good at her job for the most part; most of Joey's screen roles were as extras with minimal - if any - lines. Once she even mistakenly thought Joey had left her and tried to sabotage his career, when, in fact, he was still her client. Amongst Estelle's other clients were an act with a 'pyramid of dogs' and Al Zebooker a man who eats paper. Estelle died during the tenth season. At the time of her death, her only two remaining clients were Joey and Al Zebooker .

The Chick and The Duck

The Chick and The Duck

The Chick and The Duck

The Chick and the Duck were a chick and a duck owned by Chandler Bing and Joey Tribbiani. In the episode "The One With a Chick. And a Duck.", Joey originally bought the chick from an animal sanctuary as a gift for Chandler after seeing - and misunderstanding - a news report about people who buy chicks and then find they cannot properly care for them. Phoebe encouraged Chandler to return the chick but Chandler, discovering that the chick was in danger of being euthanised, did not have the heart and returned home with the chick and a duck. It turned out that, after hitting a few bumps (such as getting the chick stuck in the VCR) the two were perfectly capable of caring for the birds, and they were well loved. A recurring gag throughout the series has Chandler and Joey treating the chick and the duck as their own children, a continuation of the earlier gag that Joey and Chandler acted like a married couple. At one point, Chandler punishes the duck for trying to eat the chick by sending him out to the hall. Image File history File links Friends_-_Chick_and_Duck. ...

Chandler named the chick "Yasmine", presumably after Yasmine Bleeth, an actress on Baywatch, a television program he and Joey frequently watched, though the chick later turns out to be a male when he becomes a rooster. In "The One With Ross's Thing", Chandler refers to the duck as "Dick", possibly after their discussion earlier in the episode about whether the chick and the duck had a baby.

After about Season 6 the animals disappeared (the duck was mentioned but not seen in Season 7), and in the final episode it emerged that they had died of old age some time ago, but Chandler and the rest of the group had lied to Joey to save his feelings, telling him that they had gone to a farm where they were very happy but could not be visited.

Also in the final episode Joey bought Chandler a new duckling and chick as a housewarming gift (Joey named them "Duck Jr." and "Chick Jr." respectively).

Ugly Naked Guy

Ugly Naked Guy was shown twice on screen: once while he was suspected of being dead, and once with his back facing the camera. His actual name is not known. He was a strange hermit who received his nickname for being fat and ugly, as well as being naked while at home. He wasn't always Ugly Naked Guy, though. In an episode that was supposed to take place before the series started, Phoebe referred to him as Cute Naked Guy, but commented that he had been putting on a lot of weight recently. In "The One With the Lesbian Wedding" he is described by Rachel's mother as "an unattractive nude man playing a cello."
