Storyline

Joey becomes a learning extension teacher in soap acting, and loves the respect from even more clueless kids. Monica chooses a ridiculously cheap bed from Janices ex; Phoebe signs for her at delivery- of another bed, a childish race car! Rachel convinces Ross to dine with her dad, who takes him down even worse then he feared; the next day Ross and Dr. Green find each-other making fun about Rachel's chiropractor and various lack of good sense. When Joey hears one of his students also auditions for the same role he wants, he tries to eliminate him by bad advice to play the boxer gay, but the effect surprises him, though less then what he sees at the Mattress King when trying to get Monica's original bed.

Matt Le Blanc Is Brilliant Here
17 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was going to rate this episode as 7/10, but I'm giving it an extra bonus point just for how awesome Matt Le Blanc was in this episode. His acting class is the stuff of great TV and is certainly classic "Friends" Plot In A Paragraph: Joey starts teaching a soap opera class at the local college, but when he finds out one of his students is up for the same role as him, he tries to sabotage his student. Monica buys a bed from Janice's ex "The Mattress King" for a ridiculous price and Ross endures a horrible time when he goes out for a meal with Rachel and her Dad.

The revelation at the end of the episode will obviously have a baring on the future plots.
