Storyline

Joey is excited to get the lead in a thriller, Shutterspeed, so he and Chandler decide to drive to Las Vegas where it's being shot, in Phoebe's late grandma's cab. Monica sees to it that terrified Rachel gets a glaucoma-test and the necessary eye-drops, whatever that takes. Phoebe is furious at Ross, but won't say why, or doesn't even remember, or... The instant answers-technique Phoebe taught Joey, to choose between two routes, makes Chandler blurt out he doesn't believe it's going to be Joey's big break as he gets no pay, just 1% of profit. The indignant star-to-be throws him out on New York's George Washington bridge. Chandler feels terribly guilty, but when Joey arrives... Written by KGF Vissers
