After Joey saw Monica and Chandler doing a crossword together, he dreams about non-sexual closeness with her; they stop him moving out, and suggest their relationship probably looks so appealing because it started as friendship; so Joey transfers his interest to Rachel, who isn't interested. Phoebe finds a wallet with NYPD badge at Central Perk; after Chandler points out playing cop with real people is a serious crime, she decides to bring it to the police station, but pulls it a last time on her way- to the real cop, Gary. Ross buys a couch, refuses to pay almost as much for delivery just three blocks, but can't manage getting it up the staircase with Rachel; Chandler as third man just gets caught, the couch gets it even worse. Everyone is scared when Gary shows up, but he only wants to take Phoebe out. Written by

In-jokes and obscure references: Rachel references Jane Pauley
from Dateline NBC
(1992) as the only woman she'd ever kiss while helping Ross getting his couch upstairs to his apartment. Jane Pauley has twins (a boy and a girl) born in 1983 named Ross and Rachel. See more
When Phoebe's cover is blown and Gary asks, "And where'd you find my badge?", the word "badge" is dubbed in and does not match his lips. See more
[Ross asked Rachel to bring Joey to help move the couch but brought Chandler instead
So, did you bring Joey?
Uh, no, but I brought the next best thing.
[Chandler walks in
Chandler. You brought Chandler. The next best thing would be Monica.
Normally, I would be offended, but Monica is freakishly strong.
