Directed by Stephen Prime. The Magna-doodle on Joey's door reads "USDA Prime". See more »


Chandler's old Barcalounger magically appears in Monica's living room. Ever since Chandler and Monica moved in, Monica had made a fuss about how ugly it was; first she refused the idea of Chandler bringing it over at all ("you'd be breaking up a set!"); then as a reconciliation gesture she made space for it in the TV area; then, much later, she commented that she "never stops thinking about it" -- yet throughout, the Barcalounger was nowhere to be seen! Only in this story featuring its long-lost "sibling" Rosita from across the hall, it "had to" reappear to solidify the story line. See more »


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?

Joey's chair breaks
17 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rachel wants to change Joey's chair from the place it usually stays to put a couch there. Joey is against this idea because he thinks ''Rosita'', his chair, stays in a perfect angle for everything, including to watch Stevie, the television. When Rachel tries to change the chair from where it is, she ends up breaking it. To compensate Joey for what she did, she brings Joey to a store to buy a new and better chair.

Chandler goes to Joey's apartment and sit on ''Rosita'', making her fall to pieces. He thinks he broke Joey's chair and changes it for his chair.

Ross and Monica are angry that their parents are going to sell their house and they didn't tell anything before to them. They go to pick their childhood stuff, but while Ross' stuff are in great condition, Monica's stuff are all rotten, because they were to used to protect Jack's Porsche from the water in the garage.

Phoebe is not receiving sufficient money from her massages, so she takes Ross' advice and try to work in the telemarketing business. She goes to to work on Empire Officers to try to sell toners, and in one of her calls, Phoebe meets Earl, a guy who is depressive and wants to kill himself.
