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.

Although Monica's middle name is never revealed during the entire run of the show, when signing for the mattress that Monica buys from the Mattress King, Phoebe invents the middle name 'Fallulah' when she signs on Monica's behalf. See more »
On the first day of Joey's soap opera acting class, he writes his name on the board not paying attention. When the shot cuts away to the students and goes back to Joey, his handwriting on the board has rearranged. When the shot goes back to the students again, and then back to Joey, his handwriting has changed back to the way it was when he first wrote it. See more »
There will come a time in each of your careers when you'll have a chance to screw over another soap opera actor. I had such an opportunity in the recent, present. And I'm ashamed to say that I took it, I advised a fellow actor to play a role, homosexually. Yeah, we both auditioned for the part, and uh, as it turned out, they... liked the stupid gay thing and cast him! And now, he's got a two year contract opposite Susan Lucci, the First Lady of daytime television, and me, me I'm stuck here ...

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.
