'Monkeyshine' Guy
Security Guard (as Lawrence A. Mandley)


Joey's first fan-mail -for his character, Dr. Drake Ramore- is from Erika Ford, who sounds like a crazy stalker, so Chandler and he are scared when she turns up, but given her looks he accepts to dine together- enough for her to think she's Drake's fiancée. Hunky Rob Donan invites Phoebe to play songs for kids in the public library, but her brutally honest lyrics shock the parents. After seeing a monkey like Marcel in a commercial, Ross decides to visit him in the San Diego Zoo, where he's officially told the capucin died but hears the truth from a hush-hush caretaker: he's in a movie being shot in New York so they all go there...

The One After the Superbowl: Part 1
19 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is an episode with many guest stars. One of them is Dan Castellaneta who is Homer Simpson's voice. I just found it out today and I was very surprised because I never new what Homer Simpson looks like

Another one is Brooke Shields. And she did an amazing job playing the crazy stalker of Joey! The scene where they both eat at the restaurant and she starts licking his hands is amazing. And then he tries to explain to her that he is an actor and TV isn't real, and then all his friends make a soap-like scene by saying that he is the evil twin of Dr. Drake Ramoray, this scene is absolutely hilarious

Another guest star is Chris Isaac, he meets Phoebe and asks her to play for children. But then Phoebe sings songs that are very Phoebe-like, like where the meat is from and how grandma died. To me these songs are a little highlight of this episode, I am laughing no matter how many times I watched them

And while I am one of the people who is happy that Marcel didn't stay on the show, I was happy to see him and liked the scene when they all sing his favorite Lion King song and he recognizes and Ross and comes to him
