Storyline

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 KGF Vissers

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

The One with the Cop
14 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good episode. The story of Ross's couch is a total winner. The scenes where him and Rachel try to get it up the stairs are too funny, also when Chandler is added to it. And Ross yelling "Pivot" makes one laugh. How it ends is hilarious as well, Ross was great in the last scene at the furniture store

The way Joey tries to get a relationship with someone who was his friend first is a great story as well. The way he tells Rachel that he is hitting on her because he "saw her first" was a great joke

The story of Phoebe and the batch is a good idea as well. And the new character seems very nice and fitting well into the show
