Joey is now Jessica Lockhart!
17 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Joey's character will not be in coma anymore, and he will receive a new brain from a character of the series, Jessica Lockhart. Joey will be Jessica in Drake Ramoray's body. Joey will meet with the actress who plays Jessica to ask some tips of how act like her, but the actress didn't knew she was not going to stay in the show anymore. After some time trying to convince her, The actress finally agrees to help Joey. (specially because he made her a lot of compliments!)

Phoebe and Rachel compete to see who is going to stay with the cellphone of a hot guy they saw in Central Perk, only to later discover that the cellphone is from an old man.

Monica and Chandler aren't happy with the idea of Ross playing bagpipe in their wedding,specially because Ross doesn't know how to play it well.
