When Joey shows up smiling at Central Perk with a new leather cap, it seems he's dealing well with his writing-off from Days Of Our Lives. Even better, Estelle comforts him how write-offs happens often in the acting world, and that she's already got him another audition. However, Joey is annoyed that he's called to act as a secondary cab driver character and refuses to go down that road. Things around Joey now are not going so well - his bank statements arrives, and the amount he owes is substantial. Ross tries to convince him to go to the audition but Joey is too proud to do so. And when he goes to Central Perk for some lemonade, he learns from Gunther that before becoming a waiter, he was Bryce onAll My Children. Fearing that he'll end up just like the blond waiter, he puts his pride aside and goes to the cab driver audition. His debt is so large that Joey ends up losing all his newly-bought furniture and his new apartment. Ross, however, feels sorry for Joey, and buys the plastic white dog for him as a gift.
Phoebe and Monica introduce Rachel to a new book, Be Your Own Wind-Keeper. Apparently, the book is a wake-up call to all women, reminding them to stand their ground with men. Rachel falls in love with the book, and starts to stand by it word by word. Unfortunately for her, Monica and Phoebe do so too, and the three girls eventually turn on each other, culminating in a big fight during a goddess-circle quiz. They make up at Central Perk, giving up the beliefs they have come to collect from the book.
Chandler, already annoyed by crazy new roommate Eddie, is scared to death when he learns that the madman has watched him sleep all night long. He asks Eddie to move out immediately. Eddie says he will be gone before Chandler returns from work the next day, but doesn't leave. What's more, the headcase is dehydrating everything that comes within his reach. To prevent the basket-case from watching him sleep, Chandler crashes on Monica's couch, and over-reacts upon waking up and finding that she is affectionately watching him sleep.
The next morning, Chandler yells at Eddie, reminding him to move out, but Eddie shows no signs of recollection about this already-pursued subject. However, he obliges once again that he's going to leave. Believing that Eddie has really packed and left, Chandler brings the joy to the group, but is quickly interrupted by Eddie, who joins everyone. Not only has he forgotten the deal about moving out - Eddie believes that he and Chandler have spent the previous day at Las Vegas gambling, and that Chandler has bought him new shoes. To cap it all, he shows up with a human mannequin head which he wants to use as a bowl for chips at "our next cocktail party". But when Eddie tries to get into his apartment that night, he finds the lock changed and the door locked. When he knocks, Chandler answers the door, and pretends not to know Eddie at all. When Eddie explains that he's his roommate, Chandler replies that he already has a roommate - Joey has moved back in with him, and pretends that he had never moved out. Realizing the situation, Eddie apologizes and leaves. Chandler is overjoyed and celebrates by playing a game of foosball with Joey.

[Rachel is upset that Ross is telling her to hurry up.]
Rachel: This isn't about the movie theater. This is about you stealing my wind.
Ross: Excuse me — your wind?
Rachel: How do you expect me to grow if you won't let me blow?
Ross: You know, um... I don't have a... have a... problem with that.

[Monica is watching Chandler sleep; Chandler, agitated by Eddie doing so, screams, causing her to scream]
Chandler: Why must everybody watch me sleep? There will be no more watching me sleep! No more! Watching!

Chandler: Nah! No more.
