Joey and the Actor's Studio

Aired Tuesday 8:00 PM Unknown on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Joey asks Alex if she has hay fever, and then says that 'this will take care of that too' referring to having sex with him. This is actually a true statement. Having sex releases endorphins and anti-histamines into the blood, helping to relieve allergies.

    • On Joey's Magna Doodle:
      A whale jumping over a guy paddling a kayak.

    • Joey: I've slept with a lot of women... a lot, a lot... a lot.
      Alex: If you're expecting a high five, it's not going to happen.
      Joey: Wow, that's cold.

    • James Lipton: What is your favorite word?

      Joey: I'm turned on right now!
      James Lipton: Joey, if Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?
