Joey and Rachel compete over who has the best news. Rachel was promoted by Ralph Lauren, in person, to head a division and subsequently can hire a personal assistant. Although Hilda has all relevant qualifications and plenty of experience, Rachel she still chooses young Tag Jones, who the girls and Chandler consider beautiful enough to be a model. Tag is greatly surprised that his clumsy interview didn't lose him the job, but gets increasingly suspicious as it seems people believe he gay, a lie spread by Rachel so she can keep him for herself. However he is more interested in Phoebe. Nobody had the heart to tell Joey a pilot he made stunk, so he was overconfident about his lead in Mack and CHEESE, and told director Terry he could stuff a comeback role on Days of Our Lives, especially if Alas, the producers phone to say the sci-if series is canceled, so Joey must beg Terry to take him on board. Meanwhile, Monica tricks Chandler into telling her an embarrassing 'Ross at Disneyland' ... Written by KGF Vissers
