“Food.Sex.Food.Sex.Food.Sex. I don’t know!Oh god,I want both!!!”The confused answer to an easy question of choosing between food or sex reveals a lot about his characteristics. This is just one of the few instances where he would get a little confused over simple things. That’s just an act because in real life,Matt LeBlanc is a genius and it would be his idea to make Joey a little dim for a wide variety of comic situations. It was a great success because of the amount of flexibility it gave the writers when they were creating the script. This change was done gradually through out the first season and it was a huge success and the writers should be credited for their best work with Joey.
His role in the show,
He would play the role of a group clown,the one who sets up the jokes for others,always making some dumb statement to make everyone laugh. When i called him the clown i meant it a good way and i really envy the style of life he would have in the show. A care free attitude with the skills to pick up women. It sounds like an illusive dream that can’t be attained. Even with a care free life he would face struggles personally and professionally through out the show. It’s a way of saying that life is not that simple even for a cool fictional character. In the end he would be…Wait he would have…I’m sorry to mention that Joey’s character would not have a perfect ending. A well deserved ending.
His professional life,
It would be a tough ride,ranging from a successful soap opera star to waiting tables he would have seen it all in his career. He would choose to be an actor instead of going into his family business and he would struggle to get recognition in the first few seasons but it would all change one day when he would get a card from an agency. He would be selected by them based on a play they would perform in a small theater. The play would be an absolute hilarious one and this scenario would always reveal the difference between a good friend and a best one. If they say that you did a marvelous job then you just have a good friend but if they say it was awful that’s your best friend and in this case Chandler would say the truth. This would just be a glimpse into their amazing friendship. The agency would get him a job in a soap opera and he would play the part has Dr.Drake Ramoray for a year and a half and he would screw up in that job. How?Just watch it in the show,it’s too fun to be revealed here but he would eventually get his job back. Just watch out for that episode. It’s a guaranteed laughing riot.
His love life,
He is not a one women kind of guy and you might wonder how he attracts women. He doesn’t try too much like Barney,with his Playbook and the ability to manipulate. He just uses his three magical words.
Joey:I just look at a women up and down and then i just say “How you doing”.
That’s his style,a soft and lovely approach with which he scores chicks but he would not call them or start a relationship with them. There is no particular reason for that. You might wonder it would be because of his personal trauma or trust issues that he would have faced in his childhood but that’s not the case with Joey. He is a lucky guy who would have an amazing parents and seven sisters and a warm family. His lack of trust in women stems from something else that the show wouldn’t have ventured into. In the finale the writers wouldn’t have given a proper ending to his character an i don’t care if he had a spin off where he would get what he deserved. It was about this show and his character didn’t get the proper ending.
His famous quotes,
“How you doing” is the best one from his incredible line up of awesome quotes. He doesn’t like to share food which he would establish in a furious way with a quote “Joey doesn’t share food!!!”. He also gives out some valuable advice to his friends like,”It’s a moo point,it’s like a cow’s opinion it doesn’t matter..It’s just moo.. I still doesn’t understand that one but Rachel would seem to understand and if you do too then it’s great.
This show is the first to introduce the brotherhood between the guys. The friendship between Joey and Chandler is something to behold. They would be room mates till second season where Joey would move out and when he would lose his job he would move back in. When Chandler would move out of the house after he started dating Monica they would celebrate the end of an era.
Joey:It’s like end of an era,with tears.No more J-man and Chanee.
Chandler:I have to ask who calls us that.
In the end Chandler and Monica would plan to move to the suburbs and it would be a heartbreaking one not just for us but for Joey too.
Joey is an amazing character who we all wish to be but never can be,it’s simply because of his cool and composed charm where he has an uniqueness which can’t be achieved by anyone .He might have played a dull character in the show but he is an awesome guy in real life with an amazing intellect. Just look out for his acting in the show and i promise you would have a great time with the show. He is an amazing friend,who would even give his life. That’s loyalty and he was an shining example for that. He’s the kind of friend that everyone wants and i’m glad that i have a friend just like Joey.
