819 - TOW Joey's Interview USA Airdate: 04 April 2002 8pm * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * WILL MAGAZINE PROFILE -- AND JOEY'S BIG MOUTH -- END HIS DAYS ON 'DAYS' AGAIN? -- Joey (Matt LeBlanc) is thrilled when his name is used as a clue in the Soap Opera Digest crossworld puzzle, but he is reluctant to let the magazine do a profile of him after his last interview got him written out of his previous gig on "Days of Our Lives." Eager to see her own name in print, Rachel persuades him to change his mind, but Joey insists that all of his friends there to make sure he doesn't blurt out the wrong thing again -- triggering a trip down memory lane for all of them.
Okay, I'm not going to spoiler this because most of you have seen 60% (or more of this episode). Joey does the interview with Soap Opera Digest (This really is a publication in the USA, and has a great reputation), however, most of this episode deals with the fact that while Joey is thinking of his answers he reflects back on some of the funnier moments with the gang.
Other than that, this episode doesn't really take any of the previous storylines any further...mostly just reflects on what was past and what was funny.
And the Joey/Rachel thing...very over. No romantic thoughts from Joey thinking what life would be like with Rachel, and there wasn't any "awkward" silences between the two. So, it was like nothing previously ever happened. (Possibly because the season is finishing up and I think that this diversion was just something to take up some time?)
