The Recording

Crossing Paths with David Schwimmer

Schwimmer takes a step forward, leaving LeBlanc perplexed.

Alternative Professions

Lincoln then asks LeBlanc what he would do if he weren’t an actor, to which LeBlanc responds that he would be a formula one driver or a pornstar.

Lincoln considers a career as a pornstar and wonders if LeBlanc has what it takes.

Lincoln is taken aback when the actor proudly declares that his phallus is like his “third limb” and that he was born with it.

David Schwimmer and Matthew Perry

In episode 6 of season 2, LeBlanc attempts to contact Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer from his Friends cast. LeBlanc backbites about Perry to Schwimmer and so versa, oblivious to the fact that they still converse.

He calls them back and forth and is surprised when he receives no assistance.

Dad Has Passed Away

LeBlanc’s father dies unexpectedly while shopping with his partner Linda at a Target store in season 5, episode 5.

In the middle of the pandemonium, LeBlanc must arrange for the funeral.

He had a tumultuous connection with his father, but he wanted to accomplish something nice for him in the end.

Then he drives his father’s ashes to the seashore to be scattered. Unfortunately, the wind blows in his direction when he is scattering the ashes, causing the ashes to fall on his face.

The scenario is highly dramatic and painful since LeBlanc couldn’t do the one thing he wanted to do for his father.
