Did You Know?


When the director says to Joey and Kate "a plague on both your houses!" This is obviously a reference to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet where the line originates. See more »


After the play, Joey asks Kate how she is doing, and she says "fabulous". She brings a cup to her mouth, and then does it again from another direction. See more »

The One with the Screamer
16 May 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Phoebe stays the entire episode in the phone, trying to talk to the people from her phone's warranty.

Monica is dating Pete, the millionaire, and very happy with that fact. ( who wouldn't?)

Ross stays shocked when he sees Rachel's date, Tommy,specially after he realizes the guy is aggressive with people and a total maniac. He stays all night trying to show Rachel how horrible Tommy is, what makes his (Ross) date go away and left him.

Joey's play receives terrible reviews from the critics, and Kate, the actress that Joey is in love, wants to stay with Joey again after being dumped by the play's director.
