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

The One with the Metaphorical Tunnel
13 May 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Phoebe tries to help Joey in getting an audition that she forgot to tell him about. After she had success in pretending to be his agent (and Joey got the job) he asks Phoebe to help him with the other auditions. (Phoebe is much more talented then Estelle!)

Ross starts to get worried when he sees Ben playing with a girl's doll. He tries to substitute the Barbie for other boy's toys. Monica reveals in public that Ross dressed like a woman when he was a child, and Carol & Susan has one of the best times of their life at that moment.

Chandler is afraid to have a serious commitment with Janice, but the Friends give him support to go ahead with her.
