  • Just loved this one!

    Joey cannot stand it anymore seeing Dean and Alex together that happy. So he takes his chance surprising her for birthday while Dean beeing on a business trip. But Dean suddenly appears in effort to throw her a surprise party. Dean tells joey he is going to pop the question, but Joey kisses Alex just before Dean proposes to her. Alex is completely confused and going real crazy (so sweet though). Michael is really funny this time trying to DJ-ing Alex\'s birthday party....unplugged :-) Funny all over !! 20 minutes pure fun! I am going to miss this badly after this season!

  • Alex\'s 30th birthday, and Joey getting extremly jealous.

    This episode is my favorite episode of Joey so far, the writing has gotten better since Joey and the Snowball Fight.

    A frantic Alex comes to visit Joey at 3:42 in the morning because she is going to turn thirty in two minutes, and she wants to do atleast one thing on her, things to do before 30 list she wrote when she was 12 years old. The only thing she can do in time is, \"Call Rick Sullivan and tell him that he hurt me!\", in the phone call there is a hilarious gag which i\'m not gonna spoil.

    Joey throws Alex a birthday party thinking Dean, Alex\'s boyfriends is out of town, but he comes back and makes Joey very upset and jealous. Dean tells Joey he is going to ask Alex to marry him.

    When Joey finds out he takes Alex into his aprtment and kisses her, which confuses her and she says no when Dean proposes.

    Overall, if the show keeps having exellently funny and dramatic episodes like this and Joey and the Dad, Joey could be saved.moreless
  • Joey finally reveals his feeling to alex

    this episode was aired in Latin america on may 9th. in this episode, Joey is trying to tell alex his feelings and to do that, he planned a party for alex, because alex is having 30. but, just when the things are going well, Dean shows uo and screw the plans for Joey. so Joey talk with Jimmy about it, and decides tell alex his feelings just before Dean proposes to alex. but in the end, Alex and Joey decide to be friends,because alex is very confused.

    this episode is very good, Joey tells his feeling to a girl for the second time, the first one was back in friends when he tells to Rachel that he love her. but in this case, Joey didn t tell alex that he loves her, because he is not. maybe for the season finale, Joey tells alex his true feelings or before to that. we just have to wait and see.moreless
  • Alex finally turns 30, and Dean proposes to her.

    On Norwegian TV2 May 9th. It seems like they are going to continue sending all 22 episodes.

    Alex knocks on Joeys door at 3:42am, freaking out about becoming thirty years old in only two minutes. Joey helps her out doing at least one of the things she has on a list of things she is going to before she turns 30. Joey finds out that Alex sees him more as a buddy than a potential lover. Her boyfriend Dean is going to be out of town during her birthday, so Joey is planning a romantic dinner with her, but Dean changes his mind and throws a party for her (where Michael is the self-proclaimed DJ). Dean tells Joey about his plans to propose to Alex, so in a desperate manouver, Joey kisses Alex - making her confused so that she gives Dean a negative response when he 'pops the question'. It all ends on a roof, where they talk about who Alex should choose - Joey or Dean. For now, Joey is considered 'the buddy'.

    Meanwhile, Gina and Jimmy are arguing about if they should have matching tatoos. Joey is also being stalked by a psychotic female character named 'Marci', someone he appearantly double-dated with in the past.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Nitpick: Alex is freaking out about the list from which she has never done even one thing. After she leaves, Joey notices that one of the things on the list is lose 60 pounds. He then says 'Maybe we give Nick Sullivan a break!' Clearly Alex has lost the weight, so she was incorrect to say she hadn't accomplished anything on the list.

    • On Joey's Magna Doodle: A mouse or rat with some sort of nut or a small football.

      Alex: It's 3:42 in the morning.
      Joey: Do you wanna have sex...?
      Alex: I turn 30 in two minutes!
      Joey: Ah, you want me to get you pregnant. All right, come in.

    • (Gina and Jimmy are getting new tattoos)
      Jimmy: (to Gina) I told you no more Chinese letters. I'm starting to look like a Chinese take-out menu!

    • (Dean is going out of town on Alex's birthday)
      Alex: On the bright side he's letting me drive his Porsche while he's gone. I've never driven a sports car like that before.
      Dean: Don't worry honey. We'll just replace the clutch when I get back.
      Alex: Replace the what...?
      Dean: Oh, God!

    • Dean: (about Marci) Wow, she seems like fun. I bet she's crazy in the bedroom?
      Joey: She's crazy in every room Dean!

    • Joey: (Referring to Jimmy and Gina) They can't keep their hands off each other, they're gonna make another one of you, and I'm gonna have to live with it.

    • Alex: Do you wanna kiss me all the time or just when you find out, I'm being proposed to?
      Joey: A little of both.

    • Joey: (about Alex and Dean) I hate seeing them together. He's obviously in to her, but then she comes over to my house last night at three in the morning!
      Michael: Yeah, but Joey, she came to you! That's what we DJs call snisignificant.
      local DJ: No we don't!

  • NOTES (2)

    • This is the final appearance of Melanie Paxson as Marci. She was in 3 episodes of Joey (two if you count Joey and the Big Break, parts 1 and 2 as one episode).

    • International Air Dates:

      - Ireland: May 16th, 2006 on RTE2.
      - Latin America: May 9th, 2006 on WB.
      - Norway: May 9th, 2006 on TV2.


    • One of the things on Alex's list was to sing with The Pips. Michael then says that she wants to be like Gladys Knight which is one of his dreams too.

      Gladys Knight is one of the greatest R&B singers to ever perform, racking up a long string of hits including Midnight Train To Georgia. Her band is called Gladys Knight and the Pips.

    • When Joey says Marci's name and she comes running in she says 'Thanks again Miracle Ear!'

      This is a reference to the commercials for the hearing aid Miracle Ear. The commercials would show people hearing various things and then thanking the product in an overly exuberant way, much like Marci does.
