About Officer RossiEdit
Mr. Bentley, who was having issues from a grouchy man at the parking garage near the UN building, listens to George's bad advice, telling him "to be more aggressive with people" during disagreements so that he doesn't always have to be "pushed around". Bentley takes the suggestion, only to end up receiving a black eye from the guy. After George taunts Bentley for being a coward, Bentley decides to roughen up a little and punches a man's lights out. The bad news: the man is Officer Rossi! It takes a little coaxing from George and convincing from the normal peacable, docile Bentley to persuade Rossi, who booked Harry, to drop the charges he pressed against Bentley after he came to and booked him for assault, but it worked! Rossi drops the charges and releases Harry from jail.
