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

Joey Tribbiani: No. Rosita does not move.
Rachel Green: I'm sorry? Rosita? As in...
Joey Tribbiani: As in, "Rosita does not move."
Rachel Green: Joey, it's just a chair! What's the big deal?
Joey Tribbiani: The big deal is that it is the exact equal distance from the bathroom to the kitchen and it's at the perfect angle so you don't get any glare coming off of Stevie.
Rachel Green: Stevie the TV?

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
