Storyline

Joey is delighted to get an audition for a stage-play directed by the legendary Leonard Hayes, who also stars in the lead; when he's only allowed to finish his performance because a female producer has the hots for him, but pleases Leonard because of his tortured expression, he decides to reproduce its cause: a bursting blather and bulge full of liquids, which must come eventually come out again.

The One with the Mugging
10 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really liked this episode. The part with Joey's audition is just great. Jeff Goldblum was a great guest actor. And every time Joey auditioned it was just too funny, especially when he peed at the end when he got the role

I also really liked the idea of Phoebe having mugged Ross in the past. The descriptions of the incident were very funny and it was a sweet moment at the end where Ross got his "science boy" back

Chandler's story was alright as well. Although I think they exaggerated how old he is. I guess they just did it to emphasize how old he felt around the younger interns
