The whole gang is excited when Bobbie gets Joey invited to the Tonight show, and although his anecdotes are all too embarrassing and/or sexually explicit Michael and Gina eagerly drive him, but the highway is bogged down by a car accident. Just before it Gina and Joey's insistence made Michael give the finger, a life-first for the only polite Tribbiani, to a pair of beefy men who now stand just next to them, with a numberplate 'judoman'... Joey desperately fails to find alternative transport after Bobbie warns his spot and any chance of another invitation are lost if he's late, Gina flirts with every driver in the queue who has something like air conditioning in his car, or is just as hunky as Kyle. Alex comes trough with a motorcycle, so Joey gets his minutes of fame on national TV, but not quite how show host Jay Leno expected... Written by KGF Vissers

Joey: Thanks. It's just, when I was a kid, I used to dream about being on the Tonight Show. You know, Johnny Carson would come out and introduce me and I'd come out and he'd say, 'How you doin' Joey?' and I'd say, 'Just great, Johnny' and now that day is finally here. I'm so scared, 'cause...
Michael: Because you're afraid you're gonna say Johnny's name instead of Jay's?
Joey: It could so happen.

Joey and the Tonight Show (#1.16)
11 October 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Joey is going for the Tonight Show and gets stuck in traffic. Gina made Michael show guy a finger before that so now he is stuck right next to him. Gina goes on dates inn other guys' car and has trouble choosing them. And Joey needs to think of a way to make it to the show. Alex comes with a cute pink scooter and he makes it.

This was a fun episode. A great original idea and they managed to put many different jokes into it. Gina was pretty awesome in this episode, always made me laugh. Like making Michael show the guy the finger was funny, what a cool mom! She should have hooked up with that White Snake guy. They would be perfect for each other.

And Joey on the pink scooter was just too cute!
