      • When Michael asks Joey what is the best news he could get right now, one of the answers Joey shouts out is 'Kool and the Gang got back together!?'

        Kool and the Gang are a famous band from New Jersey best known for their #1 hit Celebration. That band has broken up and reformed with new members many times in their long career.

      • Bobbie described Deep Powder as Baywatch on skis.

        Baywatch was at one time the most watched show on the planet. It is a drama about a group life guards and their lives, loves, and adventures. It was notorious for its attractive cast members running in slow motion. During Friends, it was established that Baywatch was Joey and Chandler's favorite show.

      • One of the jobs Joey mentions is a mystery theater thing at Ted Danson's house.

        Ted Danson is a famous actor best known for his roles on Cheers and Becker. He has also starred in many movies.

      • Joey said that he uses the line 'Joey Tribbiani, star of Days of Our Live'.

        Joey played Dr. Drake Ramoray on various episodes of Friends. Between the end of Friends and the start of Joey, his character moved to L.A.

        Days of Our Lives is one of the most successful and longest running soap operas. It has been on nearly every week day since 1965, and has over 11,000 episodes.

      • Gina asks if Joey's show will be on against JAG.

        JAG (which stands for Judge Advocate General) is a hit show about a former Navy pilot and his work with the JAG office. It was on the air for 10 years.
