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

Quotes

Joey Tribbiani: I've never been through the tunnel myself because the way I understand it, you can't go through it if you have more than one girl in the car but the way I see it, you face your fears same as anything else, you've got a fear of heights, you go to the top of the building, you've got a fear of bugs, get a bug, in your case you've got a fear of commitment so you go in there and be the most committed guy there was
Rachel Green: Amazingly that actually makes sense
Chandler Bing: Really?
Joey Tribbiani: Sure jump off the high dive, stare down ...

A Below Average Friends Ep.
3 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While still funny. This episode has to overcome some of the things that I find most annoying in a Friends episode. First, the primary storyline, Chandler's ill guided efforts to confess his feelings to Janice, is run through with the whole "see, that's what a guy would do" and "a woman would never do such and such". I find the times Friends go for these jokes a bit annoying.

Secondly, the episodes' other story, Ross' worry about Ben's playing with dolls, has to get over the groan inducing presence of Susan and Carol. God bless this show for having a committed lesbian couple but I just don't find the interactions between and Ross and them to be very funny. Fortunately, they're gone fairly quickly and the rest of the storyline is funny. The end credits, with a young Ross and Monica are well done.
