Wow, OK, This “Friends” Easter Egg About Joey's PIN Number Might Actually Blow Your Mind


As a person who unabashedly falls asleep to a Friends episode almost every night, I love hearing about ~hidden gems~ from the show.

You know, like the fact that there was a casual potato just chillin' in a pastry display at Central Perk.

So, um, yes, I basically shouted, "THIS IS BRAND NEW INFORMATION" when I found out that Joey's ATM pin number spells out — wait for it — "Joey".

If I can direct your attention to Season 5's "The One in Vegas: Part 1," then you might recall that Joey asks Phoebe to find his pin number for him.

Joey: Can you do me a favor? I forgot the pin number to my ATM card...can you get it for me? I scratched it on the ATM machine down on the corner.

Phoebe: Oh, so you're 5639?

Joey: That's it! Thanks, Pheebs.

As Reddit user electronicsunrise pointed out, the digits "5639" actually spell out "Joey" on a dial pad.

And, honestly, this is one of the most Joey things that has happened in the history of Joey.

And that's saying something.

Because not only did he decide to make his very important pin number his own name, but he then forgot that his pin number was his own name.
