Am I the only one who imagined a moment after that comment with the other five calling to congratulate him but at the same time mocking him for starting up the Friends Reunion Movie rumors again?
Although, on Entertainment Tonight, he alluded to the fact that there might be a possibility of the Friends being on Episodes? I know I'm probably in the minority, but I would so much rather have a Friends reunion on either Matt LeBlanc's Episodes or Lisa Kudrow's Web Therapy then having any of them be in a Friends movie. I doubt he or David Schwimmer or Matthew Perry will be on Cougar Town though....

As for a Friends reunion, I really wouldn't mind a Friends movie, only because I wanna know what's going on with the gang now. Chandler and Monica's children would be 7 or 8, Emma would be 9, Ben would be even older and there are so many questions I wanna know. Like, does Joey finally settle down with someone? Where do Phoebe and Mike live now? Does Chandler still work in New York? What's going on with Ross and Rachel? I know, I'm just naturally curious. I don't know if I could actually see any of them on Episodes, though. Maybe David Schwimmer, and quite possibly Lisa Kudrow, but I don't know if I can see Matthew, Jennifer or Courtney.
I expect Matt Perry to guest star in Cougar Town out of all the guys, though. Matt LeBlanc would be a close second.

I would much rather see them on each others shows....I mean, I don't know what they could do in a movie. It all wrapped up so nicely! I don't think Matthew Perry will ever be on Cougar Town. I think I read somewhere that Courteney Cox asked him to play her character's boyfriend and he turned it down because he thought it would be too odd and I kind of agree with him. I would love for them to be on Episodes. It could work.

It did wrap up nicely, I guess. I'm just someone that wants some sort of Friends reunion so I thought a movie would get them all the chance to work together one last time and we'd get to see Monica and Chandler being parents, Joey actually settling down (I have not seen the spinoff, though) and Rachel and Ross' way of working out their dysfunctional relationship.
Matt as Courtney's boyfriend on Cougar Town? It would have been weird and I'm sure people would have been calling them Monica and Chandler, but I'd love for him to at least guest star as maybe even Laurie's boyfriend. I guess I can just see him guest starring on that kind of show, while I expect someone more like David or Lisa to show up on Episodes. But still, I'm just that kind of person that wants to see the actors get the chance to work together again.

Although he got dumber as the series grew on, he also became less of a womanizer, which I appreciated greatly. I know it's the minority, but I loved the Rachel/Joey season 8 subplot. I found that Matt LeBlanc's acting was superb and I've never really seen a great story arc in a sitcom where a guy falls for his best friend even with no noticeable hints toward it previously. Matt did pull it off though and although I have some complaints about the 2.0 version in season 9, I really did hope for a time that Rachel and Joey would just get together and leave Ross in the dust.
Well said! I mostly agree, I think the retread had more problems in Season 10 than it did in 9 because I hate how Ross' feelings overshadowed Rachel/Joey's happiness and finally getting together. Then they broke up right after Ross gave his blessing, which was sso disappointing to me.
I wouldn't have wanted Ross to be left in the dust.... most of the time. I still think he should have ended up with Charlie.
I loathe the idea of a Friends reunion but I wouldn't mind seeing a 'reunion' on Episodes. I don't watch that show but I would tune in if at least one other cast member guest-starred, and if they were really exaggerated versions of themselves.

His timing on the "what are you gonna do," when Ben doesn't get the part in the commercial. Kills me.

In the most recent episode of Episodes, the Matt LeBlanc character cooks for a date and says he learned to cook as a kid because his mom worked. I wonder if the real LeBlanc enjoys cooking.
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. ... Joey grew up in a large family, so it makes perfect sense that he'd have picked up some basic cooking and cleaning skills.

His cooking led to one of my favorite Chandler quotes: "I'm guessing you didn't get the part, or Italy called and said it was hungry."

After the TOW Joey Moves Out thread, I think I now know what is ultimately my main problem with Joey as a character: The show never calls him out on being a complete screw-up. Instead, it rewards him for it. Whenever he stupidly bombs an audition or sabotages an important stepping stone in his adult life, he's rewarded with coddling from the other five Friends and is allowed to continue messing up in life without any real consequences. Thus, it's impossible to really root for him as a character, since any chance of him growing or developing is inevitably sabotaged by the need to remind us that it's perfectly okay for him to be a failure (which it isn't).

Personally, I hate his inconsistency. One minutes he's just book dumb, then it's hard to tell how he manages to survive every day. Sometimes he's a terrible actor, others he's really good. That at least I could buy since there's different genres and he could eb better at some than others but he gets it for the same things.
