Season 8: Episode 181: The One Where Joey Dates Rachel
WILL RACHEL BECOME EVEN MORE CHUMMY WITH OL' PAL JOEY? -- In order to prepare Joey (Matt LeBlanc) for his big date the next night, Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) eagerly agrees to step out with him for a rare night on the town, but when each is pleasantly surprised with their newfound compatibility, they begin to regard each other in a way no one could have predicted. Meanwhile, a beaming Chandler (Matthew Perry) racks up a record number of points on Monica's (Courteney Cox Arquette) new Mrs. Pac-Man game machine -- but his three-letter ID might prove too offensive when young Ben (guest star Cole Mitchell Sprouse) visits. In addition, Ross (David Schwimmer) finally is allowed to teach an honors class but its cross-town location means he must break land speed records just to get there on time. Lisa Kudrow also stars.
