Kate is the first woman Joey liked who doesn't like him back. Monica's and Ross' aunt Sylvia died and Monica inherits the dollhouse with which she was never allowed to play. Monica invites Phoebe to play with the dollhouse but doesn't let her play anymore when Phoebe brings out a dinosaur, a giant dog and a ghost. Phoebe makes her own dollhouse which is way cooler than Monica's. Chandler has a date with Rachel's boss Joanna and finds her really dull and boring. Joanna thinks they have chemistry and loves Rachel for introducing her to Chandler. Joey and Kate are together after rehearsing their scenes. Chandler doesn't want to call Joanna again but Rachel forces him because Joanna is driving her crazy asking about Chandler. Phoebe's dollhouse catches fire and is burned down. Kate doesn't want to be with Joey. Chandler doesn't have the courage to tell Joanna he doesn't want to see her again.
Did You Know?
Aunt Sylvia (who died and left Monica the dollhouse) was mentioned twice before in the series. Monica argued with her by phone about the non-vegetarian lasagnas in The One with the Dozen Lasagnas, with Monica responding to what apparently was Aunt Sylvia swearing at her. The second mention of her was in The One Where Old Yeller Dies, when Chandler was growing a mustache (to emulate Richard), and Monica suggested that the mustache made Chandler look like Aunt Sylvia.

Lauren tells Joey that she used to schedule her classes around the airing of Days of Our Lives so she could watch him as Dr. Drake Ramoray. But Joey only played that role (initially) from January to March of the previous year, meaning she could not have registered for classes for a semester based on Joey's TV appearances. See more
