Chandler forgets to give Joey an important message
9 June 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Joey goes to an audition of a new TV show called ''MAC AND CHEESE ''where he is going to be one of the main characters, MAC, a detective who solve crimes with his robot partner Cheese. Joey doesn't have much hope in getting the job, but he is approved in the first audition. When they call Joey to give him the details of his second audition, Chandler is the one who picks the phone. He gets the details of Joey's second audition, but forgets to write and to tell Joey about the message, since Monica arrived when he was on the phone.

Joey stays angry with Chandler when he discovers that Chandler didn't give him the message, but for Joey's luck, the actor they picked to be Mac had problems and Joey is their second option for the role.
