"Joey and the Sex Tape" is the eighth episode of the second season of Joey.


Joey is practicing how to make his entry at Ellen's talk-show, and believed with Bobbie his celebrity status can only grow as it attracts a nobody threatening to publish a sex video from his past, but pales when he hears her name: Celeste, the first girl he ever loved and not only had but 'accidentally' proposed to but left by the fire-escape and never talked to again in twenty years, now she demands satisfaction on air.

Meanwhile Gina stands in for Bobbie's medical as the boss approaches 40, which she didn't tell her or Joey, so Gina and Alex fear the brutal alcoholic is embarrassed not to have anyone to celebrate her birthday with. So Gina and Alex try to help her only to find out she made a huge party that she even invited Joey to.

  • This episode is very vaguely similar to the Friends episode "The One With The Videotape".
  • Rachel being mad at Ross is mirrored when Celeste was mad at Joey.
  • In Friends, Chandler and Monica get lied to as did Gina with Bobby.
  • This episodes completely disregards a series of episodes in Friends, as Joey says to the group that Rachel was the first girl he said "I love you" to, which was over 10 years after Celeste.
