Will and Grace meet them at a dim sum restaurant. When it becomes apparent that Rob and Ellen don't enjoy the cuisine, Kai sends them away and befriends Will and Grace, when they invite them to an underground club and later to an Elvis Costello concert.
Rob and Ellen don't like Kai and Naomi, referring to them as the "freaks" from the restaurant and Rob joking "is the circus in town?"
They are shown to be rebellious, as they sneak backstage at concerts pretending to be press. Kai "was arrested with Greenpeace three times".
