Storyline

Joey had high hopes for his lead role in 'Freud!', but the musical drama slash other nonsense is too horrible for words. For Chandler, however, it's a Godsent opportunity as he sees the breathtaking beauty Aurora in the audience. Chandler is encouraged to ask her out as 'the best-looking women often have measly men.' After a great night out, Chandler sadly reports she actually has an adventurous life, including a husband Rick and a lover Ethan. The girls commiserate as he can't just be her sex-toy-boy. However, think it is a dream come true as he would get the fun without the responsibility. Joey's role still pays off as an agent saw him and casts him as his idol Al Pacino's butt double. Alas the director can't appreciate a Joey's artistic ambitions in butt-acting. Chandler discovers good sex is no doesn't make up for lack of monogamy when Aurora announces another lover, Andrew, complicating her busy bed-schedule even further. Written by KGF Vissers

Monica Geller: Why not?
Dr. Ross Geller: Because you're a 'kook'! Instead, you wait until they send you a notice.
Monica Geller: [a little uncomfortable] I could do that.

Matthew Perry Knocks It Out Of The Park
16 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Matthew Perry knocks it out of the park in this episode. Whilst he is not the focal point if the episode, he steals it.

Plot In A Paragraph: After appearing in a dire play about Freud, Joey (Matt Le Blanc) lands a part as Al Pacino's butt double in a new movie. Meanwhile Chandler (Matthew Perry) starts dating Aurora, a girl who has a complicated love life, and Monica (Courtney Cox) tries to prove she can be laid back after Rachel (Jennifer Aniston cleans the apartment.

Once complaint in this episode is that when Le Blanc is in the shower you can see his shadow, and you blatantly see his is wearing shorts, but that is more than made up for by a fantastic turn by Perry.

Perry's performance is superb, as he deals with both the joy of the no strings attached relationship and the the jealousy that comes with such a relationship.
