Storyline

When Joey starts working with his tool belt, Chandler admires his sexy macho air, but fears for his life from the tools in a child's hand. Phoebe's weird brother Frank Jr. visits, and demonstrates his hobby is melting whatever you let him get his hands on. Learning she's a masseuse, Frank eagerly asks to get a treatment, from a colleague- who isn't amused he assumed that's a euphemism for sex. At Central Perk, several friends make individual lists of five super hot celebrities, which may even be dated without being considered infidelity by the real-life partner. Ross's included Isabella Rosselini, but at Chandler's suggestion she's "international", hence too unavailable, he dropped her from the laminated draft; then she walks in the bar for real...

Trivia

Chandler falls asleep reading the 1991 edition of "One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez when Joey drills through his wall. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning when Chandler attempts to enter his bedroom through his newly-sawed-in-half door, he opens the top half and flips over the bottom half. Chandler's legs make contact with the bottom half of the door, however it remains closed as if held in place by something. In reality, since the door latch is on the top half of the door, the bottom half would freely swing and would have swung open as Chandler flipped over it. See more »

Quotes

Joey Tribbiani: Every inch of this is glued down, it'll take forever, just leave it.
Monica Geller: You can't just leave it, you gouged a hole in my dingy floor.
[Joey puts the toilet brush over the hole]
Monica Geller: That's nice, they can put it back there after the doctors remove it from your colon.

A Much Improved Episode
17 December 2014 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

A Much improved episode after a cliché ridden last one.

Plot In A Paragraph: Joey goes all DIY and decides to build an entertainment unit for his and Chandlers apartment. When Chandler reveals he and Janice have a list of five celebrities they are each allowed to sleep with should the chance arrive, Ross sets out to make the definitive list before laminating it, and then right on cue one of his picks walks in the room. Elsewhere Phoebe spends some time with her long lost brother Frank Jr.

The Phoebe storyline is the weak part here, I liked the lists and the DIY Joey parts though, as they were more in line with classic Friends.
