"Joey and the Beard" is the eighteenth episode of the second season of Joey.


The episode starts with Michael and Joey at the burnt down house taking pictures for insurance where they find out Jimmy has been living for a while. Then Michael suggests that Jimmy move in with Gina. He agrees to think about it. Meanwhile Edie Phillip's a lesbian actress is asking Joey to be her beard but Joey doesn't know she's gay. When Bobby tries to explain Joey misinterprets and thinks Edie is having a dry spell with men. Bobby tells Gina to tell him but she "accidentally forgot" to tell him. Then Jimmy asks Gina and she accepts while she was telling Alex about Joey and Edie. However the couple fights so much Jimmy spends more time letting off steam against Michael and Joey.
