Stuart "Stu" (Fred Stoller) — A waiter at Allesandro's, where Monica gets a job in "The One Where They're Going to Party!". In "The One with the Girl from Poughkeepsie" (Season 4, 1997), Stu leads a kitchen staff rebellion against Monica, locking her in a cold storage room and writing insults on her chef's hat, his motive being an extremely critical review she had written of the resturant's food and service in the local newspaper prior to being hired to work at the resturant herself, which Stu and the rest of the staff had felt publicly humiliated by, and the fact that she also replaced a member of Stu's family as head chef. Monica hires Joey as a stooge so she can show her authority in front of the staff by firing him, and the rebellion soon ends. In "The One with the Stripper" (Season 8, 2001), Stu gives Monica the phone number of someone she assumes is a stripper for Chandler's belated bachelor party, though she turns out to be a prostitute.
