Chandler finds out Eddie is not only much less fun then Joey, but positively crazy and frighteningly suspicious and inconsistent. Ross is stressing out to learn Rachel had 'animal sex' with Paolo; Richard and Monica are uncomfortable to learn she is only his second lover, he the last in a long row; there's a logistical dilemma for both couples' make up-sex. After Joey told a TV digest he 'rewrites some of his dialogues', an insulted scenarist writes his character, Dr. Drake Ramoray, to fall to his death, ending his Days of Our Lives career.

Phoebe Buffay: And why is she so upset?
Rachel Green: Because she just found out she's cut out of the will.

Goodbye Dr Ramorey
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Ross gets insecure when Rachel compares him and her former lover Paolo, Monica and Richard talk their individual numbers and elsewhere Chandler finds Eddie (A brilliant Adam Goldberg) is not only not as much fun or as interesting to spend time with as Joey, but he is also prone to mood swings and is very suspicious and his behaviour erratic. Meanwhile Joey manages to upset the writers of 'Days Of Our Lives' when he suggests he writes his own lines during a magazine interview.

There is some great stuff in this episode, mainly revolving around Joey, Chandler and Eddie
