Two very nasty and unpleasant individuals who Chandler and Ross encounter in the coffee shop after accidentally stealing thier seats. Despite the muscular, powerful build of the two strangers, Chandler (most likely because of their formal, smart and well-dressed appearances in suits and ties) feels comfortable enough in thier presence to make a joke regarding the incident, but Arthur and Carl seem to get the impression that he is mocking them, causing Arthur to retaliate by stealing his hat.  When they later enter the coffee shop on a different day again dressed in suits and ties with Arthur still wearing Chandler's hat and upon seeing Ross and Chandler sitting on the same sofa as before demand that they get off of it, Ross both bemuses and amuses them by "telling on them" to Gunther. It eventually gets to the point where Arthur and Carl, on another day where they are more casually dressed, suggest they "take this outside" but while they are discussing the rules for the fight that will take place outside of the coffee shop, they notice some wannabe thieves making off with the valuables they had set aside for the fight and give chase. Arthur and Carl fight offf the would-be thieves with help from Ross and Chandler, and decide to bury the hatchett with them as a result.

Arthur was portrayed by Nicky Katt, Carl by Peter DeLuise. They appeared as the titular characters inThe One With The Bullies.
