The One With Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E.

Episode 6.20

[Previous][Next][Back to the Master List]

Joey auditions for a new TV show and makes the call-back list; but when the call-back time gets changed, Chandler neglects to give Joey the message. Chandler has a chance to redeem himself when he takes a message that the part is available again. Phoebe and Ross help Joey run his lines, and they become convinced that they're great actors. Monica doesn't like the chick and the duck. We see flashbacks to earlier episodes demonstrating: Joey's acting; the pressure everyone feels at work; Chandler's mistakes; Joey's mistakes; friends fighting and making up; Chandler and Joey hugging.

The one where they said....

Joey: I'm up for the part of Mac Macavelli or "Mac." Yeah, I'm a detective, and I solve crimes with the help of my robot partner. He's a... he's a Computerized Humanoid Electronically Enhanced Secret Enforcer or, or "C.H.E.E.S.E."
Rachel: So, "Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E."
Joey: That's the title! Yeah! You know, they really lucked out that the initials spell cheese.

Joey: I want this part so much! You know? If I don't get this part I'm never gonna eat Macaroni and Cheese again! No, I didn't say that! That's a lie.

Monica: Aren't you dressed yet?
Chandler: Am I naked again?

Phoebe: I thought you were excellent! In fact for a minute there I was like, "Oo, where'd Ross go?"
Ross: Thank you. And I have to say, that first scene when you meet Mac...
Phoebe: Yeah?
Ross: Oh my God. I mean...
Joey: You know what? I think that's enough for today. Thanks for your help!
Phoebe: He's holding us back.
Ross: Totally.
