You don't remember what I was wearing?
I don't remember what,
but I do remember you're the first person I saw.
And I was like, "Oh, okay. That's why I've been losing out
on all of these roles over these years.
I mean, this is the good-- this is the hunk.
You know, right here. Of course he's Joey."
And then hearing all of you for the first time,
- I -- that blew me away. - That's what I remember.
I just thought everyone was so perfectly cast.
- Yeah. Yeah. - That's what I remember.
Casting the show was really hard,
much more so than I think we expected it to be.
We saw approximately a gazillion people.
There are so many different scenarios
where it wasn't going to be these six people.
It would have been such a different show.
We had seen David for another role
for a pilot we'd done the year before.
His hangdog expression stuck with us.
So when we started doing Ross, that was in our minds.
Try to get David. David has quit television.
He's had a miserable experience doing another show.
He's moved back to Chicago to just do theater.
And we had to beg him and beseech him.
And "We wrote this for you."
I believe we sent him gift baskets.
and none of it --
You didn't really fall in love, and you needed to,
'cause you needed to feel what Ross was feeling.
And then Jennifer came in.
Jennifer had a similar problem to Matthew in that
she'd already signed on
to a show called "Muddling Through."
You gonna eat that steak or argue with it?
Madeline, this here steak was supposed to be rare.
Gidney, tell me something.
How often do we have steak on the menu?
Shoot, hardly ever.
So what you have there is a rare steak.
And they had already shot six episodes of this show,
so it was a little bit more than just the pilot.
And we took this big risk to cast her,
share her with this other show
and we'll see who wins.
And we even shot not only the pilot,
but probably three episodes of "Friends"
while that show was still on television.
And if it had -- if CBS had picked it up,
we would have had to reshoot
the first three episodes of "Friends."
Jennifer had this warmth and sincerity
and genuineness about her,
where she just made you feel okay
about everything else that Rachel was
that you might have passed judgment on.
I was kind of hoping that wouldn't be an issue.
Cut. Alright. Alright.
So, that's right.
So, Matthew and Jen, you were in another show.
I mean, Jen, what were your first impressions
of the rest of the cast
when you finally got to meet them,
when it was made clear that you could do the show?
Well, first of all, I had a graveyard of failed pilots.
I did a pilot a year
and I thought, "That's what you do.
You do a pilot a year and you have some cash.
And then you go on to another pilot."
And I just remember sitting with these five other people
and thinking, "This is
the greatest group of people, the greatest script.
I have to do this."
And I actually, tail between my legs,
hat in hand, went to the producer of the show I was on
because they hired me in second position,
and I said, "Please release me from this show.
I love this show that I'm doing right now.
Nothing against your show.
I just love these people and I am having so much fun."
And he said -- he goes, "I-I saw that show.
I'm gonna tell you something.
That show's not gonna make you a star.
This show is gonna make you a star."
- Enough said. - Well, he's here tonight.
- That producer's here tonight. - No!
好了 伙计们 轮到你们了
Okay, guys, you're up.
Okay, It's All Relative.
"While in Las Vegas,
Joey finds his identical hand twin."
Wouldn't you pay good money to see these identical hands
showcased in some type of a, uh, entertainment venue?
If you leave now, I will chop off my hand
and give it to you.
From this lineup...
please identify Joey's hand twin.
2 or 3.
- I think it's 2. - You think it's 2?
I think it's 2.
Right there, number 2.
Yes, that is correct.
