When Joey is going to an audition and is only cast as understudy, he is very disappointed at first. But, since it is flu season, the actual actor gets sick and Joey gets his chance to play Richard III on stage. Since Joey liked being an understudy, he also gets to be an understudy in two other plays. Unfortunately, the two other actors also get sick. Now, Joey has got to be in three different plays at the same time, without knowing any lines or choreography of any of the plays. When an apartment is for rent in the apartment complex, Joey and Michael don't want Gina to know about it, because they fear she wants to move in there. Written by Anonymous

Joey and the Perfect Storm (#1.5)
8 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Joey is an understudy in three plays and the leads in all of them get the flu and he doesn't know how to be in all those plays. One of the tenants moves out of their apartment complex and they don't want Gina to find out so she doesn't move in. But as she finds out turns out that she does enjoy living on her own now as well.

Lots of fun moments in the episode. The understudy plot line was hilarious all the way. And Joey at the end making his great monologue and it turning out that it was a wrong play was an awesome idea. Just like the scene of him convincing the actor in the third play to go on stage by using a baseball example.
