the everyman in joey tribbiani

recently i caught an old rerun of 'Friends' on tv after work. it was the one where the only way Ross and Rachel can get their baby daughter to laugh was to sing 'Baby Got Back,' to her. that was the main story, but per usual the other characters had storylines, too, including phoebe meeting her boyfriend's park avenue parents and joey and chandler checking out monica's exboyfriend Richard's apartment.

Chandler: There's a tape here with Monica's name on it!
Joey: Ooh, a tape with a girl's name on it. Probably a sex tape! [Thinks a moment] Wait a minute! This says, 'Monica.' [Thinking more] And this is Richard's apartment... [Still trying to put it all together]
Chandler: Get there. FASTER!


it's all laid out. right in front of him. ready to be put together to form a logical conclusion. but as loveable as he is, for joey there is just something that keeps him from seeing the obvious.

happy valentine's day.

I must agree. There's nothing like a good Friends episode to brighten your day! Especially an oldie!

Why is it that no matter how painfully obvious it is, some guys just can’t put two and two together? It’s like they sit there and watch other people do it, or not do it, and they see what’s up, but when it comes to them actually doing it, some guys still just can’t put it together? It’s utterly baffling.

Happy belated Valentine’s day too ;)

i wished people a happy tuesday.

much more fun to see the special in a regular day than to try to make up a special day in itself...
