  • Trivia

    • On Joey's Magna Doodle: An old fashioned rotary phone.

    • Continuity Goof: Joey says that Celeste was his first real love. However, in several episodes of Friends he said that he had only ever been in love once and it was with Rachel. He also mentioned it in season one of Joey.

    • In this episode Joey and Alex are watching a commercial advertising Joey's appearance on 'The Ellen Degeneres Show'. Then we see Joey walking across the stage and hugging Ellen during the commercial advertising the episode. The next day when Joey goes to tape the appearance on Ellen, she says 'nice to meet you' and he replies it is nice to meet her too; implying that they've never met. However, we had just seen them interact in the TV commercial; showing that they had in fact met before.

  • Quotes

    • Joey: Remember how I used to bump into you, outside the gym. That's because I skipped math to see you. 5 days a week. 40 weeks per year. You know how many classes that is? Because I don't.

    • Ellen: Of cause I remember you. You're the worst actor ever we had on the show.
      Zach: You do remember me.

    • Bobby: (to Gina about Alex) Who is your little gentleman friend?

    • Gina: Let me ask you something. Fortieth birthday is really important. Right?
      Alex: Oh my god, Gina. You're turning 40. You look great!
      Gina: (annoyed) We are talking about Bobby.

    • (Scene on the recorded tape)
      Celeste: Mrs. Celeste Tribbiani.
      Joey: We just had sex and you're thinking about my aunt?
      Celeste: No silly. I am talking about us getting married.

    • Joey: (getting back at people walking in, while he is having sex) May be you could knock once in a while.
      Michael: There's no door on the roof of my car.

    • Joey: Come on. Obviously I am not going to show you the actual sex. I am a very private person.

    • Bobby: Oh no! If it is something damning, it'll ruin your career. Then you will take me down with you.

    • Bobby: I got a call from a woman about a sex tape you made and she is threatening to release it.
      Joey: Really?
      Bobby: I know. Your career could use a little scandal; be great for your image.

    • Doctor: Good news Bobby. According to this charts, your health has improved remarkably. Your blood pressure is no longer in the stroke range. Your liver has rejuvenated; and that bullet seems to be dislodged itself.

    • Zach: Oh man! You are not in the Hollywood loop. Aren't you? Everyone knows Ellen and I don't get along.

    • Joey: I've said a lot of things for sex; I'm dying in a week. I'm going to war. (with a bad Spanish accent) Antonio Banderas is my brother.

    • Celeste: Joey! You are going to apologize to me on national television, or I will send that tape to Ellen, and Oprah, and I'm not going to stop 'til it's seen by every woman in America!
      Joey: Every woman in America?! Those are the people I like to have sex with!!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Bobbie says that she burned down the set of Just the 10 of Us.

      Just the 10 of Us was a sitcom spin off of Growing Pains starring Bill Kirchenbauer. It focused on the lives of a coach and his wife and their 8 children. The show ran from 1988 to 1990.

    • Joey quotes a line from St. Elmo's Fire, and his girlfriend says it is like he is Rob Lowe.

      St. Elmo's Fire is a 1985 coming of age story about a group of post graduation friends. Rob Lowe was one of the stars, and it was considered one of The Brat Pack's best films.

    • Joey and Alex are watching a commercial for Joey's appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show, after which he says 'Suck on that Oprah!'

      The Ellen Degeneres Show is the massively popular talk show hosted by the comedienne of the same name. The show is a multiple Emmy winner and has been on since 2003.

      Oprah refers to Oprah Winfrey, the talk show and media titan. Her show has been on since 1986 and taped nearly 4,000 episodes. Her production company Harpo (Oprah backwards) has a hand in nearly all walks of entertainment. Oprah is considered to be one of the richest women in America with a net worth of nearly 3 billion dollars.

    • Alex is smitten by the fact that Bobbie has Dean Cain's number, mentioning that he played Superman. She later ran into Bobbie's apartment in a frenzy when she found out Dean Cain was there.

      Dean Cain is an actor most famous for his portrayal of Clark Kent/Superman in the TV series Lois and Clark.

    • Zach asked Joey if he just asked for the Pat Benatar when he got his hair cut after he saw the sex tape.

      Pat Benatar is a vocalist best known for her power ballads and harder rock numbers. She has had numerous hits, including Love Is A Battlefield and All Fired Up. During parts of her career, Pat Benatar had wild spiky hair much like Joey's in the tape.

    • Joey said that one of his pick up lines was telling girls he was Antonio Banderas' brother.

      Antonio Banderas is a Latin heartthrob who has been in many hit movies, including Interview With A Vampire and two Zorro films, as well as the Desperado series.

    • Zach says that Ellen hated him ever since he messed up a line on her show 10 years ago.

      Ellen Degeneres did have her own sitcom based loosely on her stand up act. It was a hit show until her character 'came out' and she lost her sponsors and the show was cancelled. Her career had just begun a tremendous upswing at the time of this show, and her talk show contributed greatly to that. Matt LeBlanc asked her to guest star during a real interview on her show, and she agreed. The actor who played Zach was never actually on Ellen's sitcom.
