One of my favorite episodes, and pretty heavy for Three's Company
22 November 2013 | by (victoria b.c canada) – See all my reviews

Chrissy has an older boyfriend named Lloyd. Jack and Janet can't stand the idea of Crissy dating someone older than her. They find out from Helen Roper that Lloyd is married. Once Crissy is apprised of this, she decides to get revenge on Lloyd. Meanwhile, Stanley Roper is desperate to find a buyer for his vehicle. This is a classic episode! It's strangely powerful for a series of this nature, but it works extremely well, and it still has plenty of the wonderful slapstick that we've come to know and love. Rarely ever do you see Jack Tripper get irritated as much as he does in this episode. He doesn't snap or anything, but it's highly unusual for him to get as worked up as he does in this one. I felt John Ritter did an excellent job at conveying the proper emotions in this one. It also provides a good message about relationships. Affairs were going on quite a bit at that stage, and it does to this day. Dick Sargent (Lloyd) does a terrific job as a sleaze-ball, who womanizes. The ending has a predictable, but hilarious twist, which never, ever gets old. This is one of the best episodes in the series as far as I'm concerned. It's hilarious, touching, and at times, powerful. You'll love it if you're a fan of the show

Favorite quote: Lloyd (introducing himself) : Good evening. Jack: Good evening. I'm Jack Tripper. Lloyd: Cross. Jack: Why, did Mommy spank you?
