Frank Buffay, Jr (Giovanni Ribisi) — Phoebe's half brother by their father. He first appears, unidentified, in "The One with the Baby on the Bus" as a stranger who leaves a condom rather than money in Phoebe's guitar case when she is singing in the street, and then comes back to retrieve it. In "The One with the Bullies"[e 69] Phoebe meets him after finding the courage to knock on her father's suburban door, but discovers he walked out several years ago. Frank visits the city in "The One with Frank Jr"[e 70] where he hits on Jasmine. In "The One with the Hypnosis Tape",[e 71] he announces his engagement to Alice Knight (Debra Jo Rupp), his old home economics teacher and 26 years his senior. Phoebe disapproves of thier relationship due to the age gap and bemuses them both with her daft comments as she unsuccessfully tries to split them up, but eventually comes to accept thier relationship. In "The One with Phoebe's Uterus",[e 72] they ask Phoebe to be a surrogate mother to their child, which turns out to be triplets in "The One Hundredth."[e 73] Frank makes a final appearance in "The One Where Ross is Fine",[e 74] when he and the triplets meet Phoebe at Central Perk. 14 years on he is now seen remarried to another friends girl (Unknown)

The Seattle Times ranked Frank as the fourth best guest character of the series in 2004.[23] Alice was only scheduled to appear in the one episode but was brought back for a recurring role after the surrogacy storyline was created when Lisa Kudrow became pregnant.[30]
