    I find it quite insulting to my intelligence that I'm expected to believe the main story of this episode. Suspension of disbelief is very important when watching anything on TV, and Joey trying to learn French and talking gibberish seems more symptomatic of a serious brain injury than Joey being a bit thick. There's no structure at all to what he thinks is French, it's obvious he's making it up as he goes along, so how can we possibly believe that he genuinely thinks he's speaking French?

    The sub-plots are reasonably amusing if not exactly hilarious, but the ludicrous and unbelievable Joey story just ruins the whole thing.
