Joey is nominated for a Soapy Award for his part on Days of Our Lives and Rachel is his date to the ceremony. Joey doesn't win the award but takes someone else's award home.

13 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Joey is nominated for Days of Our Lives for a Sopie, the third most prestigious soap opera award. Rachel is going with Joey to the ceremony, since she is a big fan of soap operas and ceremonies. Joey starts to dream that he won the award, but Rachel tells him that he needs to practice on his ''loser face''.

Ross decides to talk to Morse, one of his students. Ross failed Morse because he was doing terrible in the exams, but Morse tells Ross that he is in love with him, and he cannot focus in the classes because of that. Ross talk about this problem with Rachel and Joey, and they tell Ross to ''take it easy'' with the kid. Ross helps Morse with his grades, but discovers that Morse is lying when other student tries the same thing to raise his grades.

Phoebe dates Jake, a guy she met in the cafeteria and is all excited with their relationship. Monica starts to panic seeing Phoebe's relationship, thinking that she will never have a first kiss again or to sleep with somebody else.
