Storyline

Rachel wants to have a place to sit in front of the TV but Joey tells her Rosita, the armchair, does not move. Rachel tries to move it anyway and breaks it in half. The Gellers sell their house and Monica and Ross have to take their childhood memories home but Monica's boxes were ruined in a flood. Phoebe starts working as a telephone sales woman and talks to Earl who want to kill himself. Chandler sits in the armchair and thinks he broke it so he secretly exchanges Rosita with his chair. Meanwhile Joey and Rachel went to buy a new armchair as well so now they have two. Rachel keeps the super cool new armchair while Joey is stuck with his normal old one. When Chandler finds out he didn't break Rosita he wants to take it back but Joey broke Chandler's chair in order to get Rachel's cool chair. Phoebe talks Earl out of killing himself. Monica's dad gives her his Porsche to say that he loves her just as much as he loves Ross. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Phoebe gets a job selling toner to people over the phone when she eventually ends up talking Earl out of committing suicide. Earl is played by Jason Alexander who played a character on Malcolm in the Middle (2000) who sold toner over the phone. See more »

Goofs

Within the episode, Earl mentions several times that no one knows him or cares about him. But Phoebe when called the company for the first time and someone answers, Phoebe asks for the supply manager and that someone passes the phone to Earl right after telling Phoebe his name. This would mean that at least one person does know him. See more »

The One Where Rosita Dies
22 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I love the chair story. It is funny how Joey's chair and TV have names: Rositta and Stevie. And it is also great how it might have been a miracle and a chair angel repaired it. The only thing is that it makes me sad for Chandler that he lost his chair

Phoebe's story is pretty good too. I was very happy to see Jason Alexander have a part in Friends. It was a very George-like character as well, only more desperate so that he would kill himself

And when it comes to Ross and Monica, I actually felt pretty bad for Monica in this episode at least until she got the Porche. I can't say I felt too bad for Ross though, come on the guy is a professor he should afford one
