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 ...

The One with the Metaphorical Tunnel
25 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

We get to see Chandler overcoming his fear of commitment and by this totally freak out Janice. I liked the scene of them meeting in the grocery store and Chandler trying to pretend like he is going to a party.

The story of Ross being all worried about Ben playing with a Barbie and trying to give him a GI Joe to play with is pretty good as well. Especially I like it at the end when Monica says that he used to wear women clothes as a kid and they remember the song that he used to sing then.

The story of Phoebe being Joey's agent is amusing as well
