Crissy goes out for a night on the town with some girlfriends. She stays out much longer than Janet expects. Janet panics, wakes up Jack. Jack shrugs it off as inconsequential, until he realizes it is after 3 AM. Crissy arrives soon after, safe and sound. Janet & Jack accost Crissy for being irresponsible, until she reveals that a man mistook her for a prostitute. The man pays a visit to Jack's place, but he is actually Detective Hannigan (James Cromwell) Jack gets in really hot water when he punches the detective. I really liked this episode a lot. I can relate too Jack & Janet's paranoia, because I get worried sick when somebody I care about doesn't come home the time they usually do. Crissy is a favorite of mine, but she is part annoying, part funny in this one. She overdid it a bit with the hysterics, but she was funny most of the time. Calling people homosexuals is a bit taboo these days, even if this was a common theme for quite a while in this show. I always get a kick out of Mr. Roper's gay impersonations, and John Ritter was hilarious as well when he tried to scare off James Cromwell with gay tactics. The prank Janet & Crissy pull on Jack at the end is hilarious
