It was during episode eight of the first season of Friends, titled The One with the Monkey, that viewers were first introduced to the adorable Marcel, a white-headed capuchin monkey Ross brought to Monica’s apartment. After being rescued from a lab by Ross’ friend Bethel, Ross adopts the little munchkin, who would go on to appear in eight episodes throughout the series, cementing his status as a Friend of Friends. Marcel’s appearances were peppered thought the first two seasons of the series, including The One Where the Monkey Gets Away, in which Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) got shot with a tranquilizer dart while searching for the runaway rascal.
