Joey Tribbiani’s Top 10 Best Moments
Share This Article:
Matt LeBlanc’s performance as Joey Tribbiani, the dim-witted womanizer with a heart of gold, in Friends will go down in history as one of the most iconic performances of all time. Whether he’s stuck in a turkey or hitting up women with the line we all know and love - ‘How you doin'?” - Joey will always have our hearts. In honour of LeBlanc’s 51st Birthday, here’s a countdown of Joey’s top ten moments on the hit sitcom that brought him to our screens. 10. When Joey gets a handbag (ep. The One with Joey’s Bag, Season 5) Joey has been breaking gender stereotypes since 1999. This episode sees Rachel fit him out with a new look for an audition, complete with a man-bag to help him look sophisticated. Joey’s new look garners ridicule from his friends and ultimately loses him his audition but he still looks chic doing it, plus his defence that anyone can wear anything they want as long as it makes them happy is exactly what we need in 2018. 9. When Joey added fire to rock, paper, scissors (ep. The One with the Late Thanksgiving, Season 10) After Rachel, Phoebe, Ross and Joey are all late to Thanksgiving Dinner, it comes down to rock, paper scissors to decide who will go in first to face the wrath of Monica. Joey brings out fire and for a moment thinks he has won, only for Phoebe to beat him with water balloon. It is a moment that reminds us of Joey’s childlike innocence and his sheer ridiculousness. 8. Joey’s infamous pickup line ‘How you doin?’ The line that had girls weak at the knees for ten seasons and the line that will be forever remembered as Joey Tribbiani’s go-to chat up line. Have a look at the video below for a compilation of all of the times he has used this, to varying degrees of success. 7. When Joey can’t decide between sex and food (ep. The One Where Chandler Gets Caught, Season 10) “I want girls on bread!” This outburst came about after a discussion between the friends, if they had to give up either food or sex which would they choose. Joey couldn’t possibly make such a choice between the two loves of his life and the stress led to the exclamation, ‘I want girls on bread!” 6. When Joey defends healthy body image (ep. The One Where Rachel’s Sister Babysits, Season 10) “I’m curvy and I like it!” Joey is the role model we all need. After Rachel’s sister Amy makes a snarky comment about Joey’s love for fast food and how ‘a moment on the lips stays forever on the hips’ Joey comes back with the iconic retort, “I’m curvy and I like it.” Joey is standing up for people everywhere showing us all how to love our bodies for what they are.
