    • Joey says that he and Dean get all of the same magazines; Maxim, FHM, Playboy, British Playboy, and also that he used to get German Playboy.

      Maxim is a men's magazine that is sold internationally. It has more than 2.5 million subscribers in the U.S. alone. It features popular female celebrities, though none are nude. It has been published since 1995.

      FHM (For Him Magazine) has been published since 1985. It has grown from a mostly fashion oriented publication to featuring more about celebrities and sports. At the time of this episode, it was still available for subscription in the U.S. However, in 2007 the magazine's U.S. branch converted to an all digital format with the launch of FHM Online.

      Playboy is owned by Hugh Hefner and has been published since 1953. It is known for featuring beautiful women in the nude, as well as for its articles and interviews. It is available in many countries around the world, Germany being one of them. There is no British version, though the U.S. edition is available for subscription in England.
