Friends: “The One After the Superbowl”
This was a memorable two-part Season 2 episode that featured several guest stars including Julia Roberts, Chris Isaak, Fred Willard and Brooke Shields. In the episode, Shields stars as a crazy admirer named Erika who writes Joey (Matt LaBlanc) and encloses her eyelashes. Joey, being Joey, is excited he has his very own stalker, but when Erika shows up unannounced at his apartment, he ends up asking her out. Erika is cray-cray-crazy, believing he’s really his character Dr. Drake Ramoray. As for his “Friends” who threw the water at him? LaBlanc gets the last laugh in this one.
