Storyline

Joey is delighted to get an audition for a stage-play directed by the legendary Leonard Hayes, who also stars in the lead; when he's only allowed to finish his performance because a female producer has the hots for him, but pleases Leonard because of his tortured expression, he decides to reproduce its cause: a bursting blather and bulge full of liquids, which must come eventually come out again. When a robber who just took Ross's wallet at gunpoint is recognized by Phoebe as her street friend Lowell, she admits to have been a mugger herself, and soon remembers one of her nerdy teenage victims was Ross, then a comics fan, from whom she took his backpack containing the sketches for his own nerdy superhero "Science Boy". Chandler gets and aces his own audition, for an unpaid intern job as writer in a publicity firm, where he is considered the old dude, but proves wit transcends generations by elaborating the only bright idea for a product which rather appeals to childish Joey, sneakers ...

Trivia

The slogan "Got Milk?" was first dreamed up in 1993 for the California Milk Processor Board by the ad agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. The first ads featured a man with a mouthful of peanut butter trying to answer the question "Who shot Alexander Hamilton?" on a radio call-in show. No one understood his cries of "Aaron Burr!" because he didn't have a glass of milk to de-stick his palate. MilkPEP then licensed the phrase in 1995 and launched the celebrity posters, for which an array of stars and athletes, from the Olsen twins to Reggie Bush, shared why they drank milk. About 300 different celebrity ads were generated. See more »
