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...

The One with Frank Jr.
25 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode we see Phoebe meeting her brother again. I really liked that part of the episode. Giovanni Ribisi is just perfect in the role of Frank Jr. And it is so much fun watching them becoming more like brother and sister. Starting with Phoebe not connecting with him at all and at the end being a step further.Plus the character is very funny, one can see that he is related to Phoebe.

Joey building the entertainment unit was a hilarious story as well. Especially in the scene where he almost gets Chandler with an electric drill or when he checks out Monica's tile

And then we also get the story of The List, which is a real classic of the show.
