In an episode of Friends, Joey seeks help from Phoebe in learning French for an upcoming audition. Having no prior experience in language learning, he reaches out to her for help. His first line for the role is simply: “Je m’appelle Claude” (My name is Claude). After Phoebe says the line beautifully, Joey repeats the line which sounds like: “Je bloo blah blay.” After repeated attempts, he is unable to pronounce one of the basics of learning any language, and his ‘teacher’ becomes frustrated indicating that she simply cannot help him master the few lines for his audition. At one point, she goes so far to say that he simply isn’t speaking French.
