Episode guide
The One Where They All Turn Thirty
The One With The Truth About London

Joey's Days of our Lives character has another famous one's brain transplanted into his body, and tells the actress by accident. Ross cooks up a special surprise for the wedding. Meanwhile, after finding a cute guy's phone, Phoebe and Rachel compete over who gets to keep the phone to start 'a fairytale for the digital age'. This was one of the episodes that was longer than usual as a promotional stunt for the network in order to compete against Survivor.

Note: Matt LeBlanc was nervous at performing with Susan Sarandon. Similarly, Kevin Bright was cautious about directing, as Tim Robbins attended the studio recording.[2]
