Trivia & Goofs

  • This is Lucy Liu's third and final appearance in the show.
  • Goof: Joey is talking to Brody. He has a cup in his left hand, then when the shot changes, it's in his right.


  • Bobbie: (laughing) Oh, God. Martin: Hey, could you keep it down? Bobbie: I am not gonna keep it down. That's my client. He's the funniest thing in this.
  • Alex: We just went shopping for our outfits for the premiere. We're so excited. Gina: You gotta see these dresses me and Alex got. (pulls her dress out of the bag) Tell him what you said about mine. Alex: I said "That is the sluttiest thing I've ever seen." Gina: And, out came the credit card!
  • Michael: I got my tux. How are you doing on the tickets? Joey: Uh, not so good. I was gonna call my boss a while ago, but I started playing Tetris and I couldn't put it down. Ooh, check it out though. I got to level two. Michael: Well, that's not very good. Joey: Yeah, I don't understand the game.
