No! because…

1. Joey doesn’t believe in stereotypes

2. He is scientific

At the beach Monica gets stung by a jellyfish. Joey remembers a documentary from the Discovery channel that suggested urinating on a jellyfish sting to make the pain go away and he "steps up" to help her though Chandler is forced to do it instead cause he gets stage fright.

3. He is a keeper of secrets

When Chandler and Monica begin dating, he manages with great difficulty to keep it from the others. Well it’s difficult to keep up when they know that we know that they know we know.

4. Treeger’s dance partner

Phoebe has weird meat cravings when she is expecting in spite of being a vegetarian so Joey decides to go meatless for her to maintain the number of cows on earth.

6. Good brother

He is the protective old brother who tries to talk sense into his sister who gets pregnant with a boy from a band Numnuts.

Being the true friend that he is, he tries to save Chandler from a cheating Janice. He also guides him saying that he shouldn’t break her family for himself!

8. Perfect priest

His best friends are getting married and how can Joey not be at the heart of it! He gets ordained as a New York Priest and marries them off.

9. Joey and Rachel

This is my favourite could have been. Though this didn't work but Joey was man enough to confess his crush, value Ross’ reaction and also break it off by putting his friendship with Rachel above everything else.

10. Everyone’s best friend

Chandler and Joey? The lesser said the better. Like marriages, this match was made in heaven!
