The One Where Rosita Dies, 22 August 2011
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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
