Storyline

When Joey starts working with his tool belt, Chandler admires his sexy macho air, but fears for his life from the tools in a child's hand. Phoebe's weird brother Frank Jr. visits, and demonstrates his hobby is melting whatever you let him get his hands on. Learning she's a masseuse, Frank eagerly asks to get a treatment, from a colleague- who isn't amused he assumed that's a euphemism for sex. At Central Perk, several friends make individual lists of five super hot celebrities, which may even be dated without being considered infidelity by the real-life partner. Ross's included Isabella Rosselini, but at Chandler's suggestion she's "international", hence too unavailable, he dropped her from the laminated draft; then she walks in the bar for real...

A Much Improved Episode
17 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A Much improved episode after a cliché ridden last one.

Plot In A Paragraph: Joey goes all DIY and decides to build an entertainment unit for his and Chandlers apartment. When Chandler reveals he and Janice have a list of five celebrities they are each allowed to sleep with should the chance arrive, Ross sets out to make the definitive list before laminating it, and then right on cue one of his picks walks in the room. Elsewhere Phoebe spends some time with her long lost brother Frank Jr.

The Phoebe storyline is the weak part here, I liked the lists and the DIY Joey parts though, as they were more in line with classic Friends.
