Phoebe's grandmother dies, and she is shocked when her father turns up at the funeral (When he identifies himself as "Frank Buffay," there is an audible gasp from the studio audience.). Wanting to know more about him, she decides to arrange an encounter without telling him her identity. With an audition coming up, Joey wants to look good but doesn't feel he has a 'style'. Rachel steps in to help out, and convinces Joey to start carrying a "man's bag" to help him get the part. Joey soon starts loving the bag, but to everyone else he just looks like a man carrying a purse. Monica is upset that Chandler doesn't like her massages, but her competitive nature is placated when Chandler says she gives the "best bad massages."
