1.03 - Joey and the Party

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

Joey is feeling lonely, so he throws a party to get to know his neighbors, especially Jake. Jake and Gina take an interest in each other, but Jake's only looking for a one-night stand, so Joey decides he doesn't want to be friends after all. Michael gets Alex to be his fake date for the party, to compete with his friend, Seth, who's bringing his new girlfriend. Joey tentatively accepts a friendship with Howard, an over-exhuberant neighbor who was a big fan of Joey's Days of Our Lives character.
