Storyline

Joey is excited to get the lead in a thriller, Shutterspeed, so he and Chandler decide to drive to Las Vegas where it's being shot, in Phoebe's late grandma's cab. Monica sees to it that terrified Rachel gets a glaucoma-test and the necessary eye-drops, whatever that takes. Phoebe is furious at Ross, but won't say why, or doesn't even remember, or... The instant answers-technique Phoebe taught Joey, to choose between two routes, makes Chandler blurt out he doesn't believe it's going to be Joey's big break as he gets no pay, just 1% of profit. The indignant star-to-be throws him out on New York's George Washington bridge. Chandler feels terribly guilty, but when Joey arrives... Written by KGF Vissers

The One with Joey's Big Break
16 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The story of Phoebe being angry at Ross is pretty funny. She doesn't remember why, but she is really mad and even has a list with Ross's name on it. And I love how they find out that it was because of something that happened in her dream. When she twicks his arm to make sure that he isn't sleeping now, it is so Phoebe!

It is also very funny how Joey uses Phoebe's "fast answer" technique and asks Ross if he wants to sleep with Monica or Rachel. And when Ross tells him that he is sick he thins that it is because of his history with Rachel

Just want to point out that Monica gave Chandler permission to go to Las Vegas in this episode. Thats how controlling she is and Chandler put up with the abuse

And I also loved the scene where everyone jumps on Rachel to put drops in here eyes
