Season 2 Episode 16

Joey and the Party for Alex

Aired Tuesday 8:00 PM Unknown on NBC



  • Trivia

    • 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.

  • Quotes

    • (Alex is knocking on Joey's door in the middle of the night)
      Joey: What are you doing here? What time is it?
      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

  • Allusions

    • 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.
