Friends: The One With the Girl Who Hits Joey

Joey has a new girlfriend called Katie: she's sweet, cheerful, attractive and has a wacky personality. Unluckily for Joey, she is very strong and energetic and keeps playfully punching his arm, which causes him extreme pain. Meanwhile, Ross is public enemy number 1 in his new apartment block after he refuses to contribute to a fund for Howard, the retiring handyman. Ross arranges a party in a desperate effort to make peace. But he is annoyed when everyone in the block seems to prefer Phoebe to him. Elsewhere, Chandler and Monica are excited about their future now that everyone knows about them. But Chandler's trouble with commitment and his immaturity to a serious relationship threatens to ruin things for them.

Episode Notes
The Etch A Sketch board on the door of Joey's apartment shows a heart with the text "C. B. + M. G." inside it (and "4ever" just outside of it), which are the initials of Chandler and Monica. This would most likely be done by Joey since everybody now knows about their relationship and he doesn't have to keep it a secret anymore.
