Storyline

Joey misses an important audition because Phoebe forgot to give him the message about it. Phoebe gets him another appointment for the audition acting as his agent. Chandler is afraid to see Janice again because suddenly he scared of the commitment. He wants to get through the tunnel where at the end there is no fear of commitment. Joey gets the job and asks Phoebe to manage his other auditions too. Commitment doesn't scare Chandler anymore but it scares Janice and she leaves. Rachel and Monica help Chandler cope with his feelings because he is on their side of the tunnel now. Phoebe quits her job as Joey's agent because he only gets rejections. Janice gives Chandler another chance. Written by Anonymous

Another So So Episode
17 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

These type of story lines are the worst ones "Friends" do as Monica and Rachel attempt to talk Chandler through his issues with Janice, saying cliché things like "If a woman did, what you did, a guy would be sleeping with someone else by now!!" Plot In A Paragraph: Chandler struggles to show his commitment to Janice and he ends up scaring her off when he goes to far. Meanwhile Ross is upset that Ben is playing with a Barbie doll and Joey asks Phoebe for some help with getting an audition when he fails to get a message in time.

Normally a storyline with Matthew Perry taking centre stage, but this episode misses the mark.
