(Another idea for the "Joey" label? Please share!)

And I'll admit...the only reason I watch Joey's new show is out of loyalty to Friends. *sigh*

I like "How YOU doin'?" simply because that's how he always said it.
I know, but they already use the exact phrase for the "Joey" thread in the general Sitcoms forum, so I thought I'd be a little cute with it.

Tribbiani's never share food!!!!
It's a moo point?
Any other suggestions?

Joey Tribbiani: It's a moo point.
It's like a cow's opinion; it doesn't matter. It's moo! (Hee.)

Joey wasnít the greatest character and Matt Leblanc wasnít the greatest actor, but I love some of the more bizarre acting jobs that Joey would get. The musical about Sigmund Freud stands out for me. My absolutely favorite Joey work moment is when heís trying out for the Musical Tale of Two Cities and heís supposed to teach all the other actors the dance routine. The end product makes me laugh just thinking about it.
The worst work related thing was when Monica made him the prosthetic foreskin. Ew, ew, ew, ew, why?

Lines like, "This hurts my Joey's Apple" and "Put your hands together" worked so well because of the character's charm

I love that saying so much as it's so illogical that it works for Joey. Joey was obnoxious when he got too stupid (speaking French, anyone?), but when he was just a little slow, he was terrific. His slow responses were always the best. When he finds out about Monica and Chandler, and you slowly realize his brain cells are working together, it's a monumental moment for him.
Even though I just said I hated too dumb Joey, in the ninth season, when he's filling out Ross's medical paperwork, he kills me. "Occupation: Dinosaurs." "I thought maybe it was short for something...like Rossell or Rosstopher." And the air quotes thing is funny, even if he'd already used them correctly at some point in the series.

Also, the bit with the medical paperwork was awesome. "Occupation: Dinosaurs." "Actually it's... dinosaurs is fine. -- The picture is not."
Joey was not one of my favorites in the early seasons but as time went on I just loved watching him. LeBlanc's expressions were what really did it, I think. When he figured out the truth about Monica and Chandler, his consternation when he let slip about Hugsy, his bedtime penguin pal, and his frustration with Rachel as the extreme soap fan.
All of that was great stuff. And anything that had him and Chandler together was always worth watching.

This episode has one of my favorite exchanges:
As dumb as Joey was, there were times where he was actually sensible. Like when Ross and Chandler were bummed that their old college buddy:"Gandalf, the Party Wizard" wasn't able to visit.
Ross: Joey, you are gonna love this guy. Gandolf is like the party wizard!
Joey: Well, why do you call him Gandolf?
Ross: Gandolf the wizard. (Joey is still confused) Hello! Didnít you read Lord of the Rings in high school?
Joey: No, I had sex in high school.
One of the rare instances where Joey gets a joke that's about snark and not about him being generally clueless. There were fewer and fewer of these moments as the seasons progressed. Of all the ways Joey changed over the years, one of the things I came to miss most was his habit of cooking to relieve stress. We see it first in TOW The Boobies, then again in TOW Russ (which is my favorite of the two examples, what with Chandler sticking his hand in the cookie jar full of marinara sauce), and I always thought was such a fun little layer to his character. Joey grew up in a large family, so it makes perfect sense that he'd have picked up some basic cooking and cleaning skills. And to see him use a task like that as an outlet, sort of channelling his confusion and frustration into something productive, added a sense of realism to his character. I would have liked to have seen this trait re-surface later on when he was stressing over things like his feelings for Rachel or Mondler moving.

I wanted to throw things at the T.V. That was stupid beyond belief -- developmentally delayed territory.
Notwithstanding that, and a few other moments like it, Joey was indeed some much needed comic relief in the soapiness.

For years I didn't get that one, cause I'm not a native English speaker. When a friend of mine finally clued me in, I just started laughing and couldn't stop for at least 10 minutes. I know they dumbed down Joey too much, but I still thought this was hilarious!

Is there another "Joey-ism" that we can use?
My favorite Joey quote has always been "let me tell you a little something about how the human body works." Cracks me up every time I hear it! He did love his food.
I think the thing I loved most about the Joey character was his genuin love and respect for Phoebe, Monica, and Rachel.
Me, too. There was always the kidding around (general and sexual), but I always felt he had a tender spot for the girls and was protective of them, especially when Phoebe and Rachel were pregnant. Oh and something that makes me laugh is that when they thought Phoebe was a porn star, Joey was the only one of the other 5 who wasn't going to watch the tape. Only when they figured it out that it was Ursula, did he become interested! Sweet.
