'Box and Cox' was a 19th Century farce about two men, Box and Cox, who both rented the same room by a deceitful landlady. One occupant works by day and one works by night, so both are unaware that they share the room.
The popularity of the farce coined the phrase to 'box and cox', meaning to take turns.
