  • This episode actually aired on May 30th here in Latin America. It´s not a fake episode.

    It was actually fun to watch Joey and Alex "exchanging" their roles: Alex only wants to have sex while Joey wants to take their relationship to another level.

    Inspired by Gina and Jimmy, Joey wishes to have a "magic moment" with Alex. On the other hand, Alex is only interested in going to bed with Joey.

    In the meantime, Michael meets a girl on the Internet and starts chating with her. He does all the crazy things she asks for while Joey tries to convince him that she may not be "what" he expects. Michael keeps ignoring Joey and wants to meet her in Vegas. Oh..and the girl´s nickname is SexySteve, by the way...moreless

  • NOTES (2)


    • Jimmy says that he went on an ill fated bid to win the America's Cup.

      The America's Cup (which is not to be confused with the America Cup) is the most recognized sailing award in the sport. It was founded in 1851 and is the oldest active award in any sport (pre-dating the modern format of the Olympics by 45 years).

    • Gina's secret that she writes on the pad is that she dated 50 Cent.

      50 Cent is one of the most succesful rap artists of all time, having sold more than 21 million albums world wide. He has also appeared in several films. He is from South Jamaica, Queens (near where Gina and Joey were raised as kids).

    • Jimmy asks Joey if he wants to go to Pennsylvania to be like Rocky.

      Rocky is a very successful franchise of boxing movies starring Sylvester Stallone. They revolve around the life, training, and hardships of Rocky Balboa. One of the most famous scenes in the first movie, as Jimmy mentions, is when Rocky is training and he runs up and down the stairs.

    • Joey says that he studied a priest for an episode of Law and Order that he did.

      Law and Order is one of the most successful and longest running shows on TV. It has been on for 19 years and it follows the story of a crime from investigation to prosecution. Most of the story line are adapted from real life news and crimes.

    • Joey says that Jimmy and Gina always yell at each other, and then Gina says that so did Ike and Tina Turner and that was the greatest love story ever told. Then Joey responds by saying that Gina needs to watch the end of that movie.

      Ike and Tina Turner were a husband and wife hit machine from the 50s to the 70s best known for songs like Proud Mary, Shake a Tail Feather, and Fool in Love. Ike Turner was an abusive husband until Tina left him. The movie Joey is referring to is What's Love Got To Do With It, a biographical film about their marraige, career, and break up. It starred Lawrence Fishburne and Angela Bassett.

    • Gina asks Alex if she's ever seen the movie Wild Things.

      Wild Things is a murder mystery revolving around two women and the guy they are both dating. It has a substantial lesbian plot line and many scenes involving the two women.
