Larry offers a job for Jack to be a live-in cook for his boss and his wife, the Laytons. While Jack is not too thrilled about the idea at first, he later seriously considers it when he gets into an argument with Janet and Chrissy. He, therefore, moves out and gets dinner for the night for the Laytons. However, Jack got more than he bargained for when Mrs. Layton makes passes at him, and Janet and Chrissy are stuck in the apartment trying to learn how to cook and learn how to protect themselves.

Mrs. Layton has hot legs
14 February 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After watching this show, I think that Cynthia Harris has the sexiest pair and legs and feet around, and she can do that to me as well during dinner.She can chase me for hours around that table and it would not bother me, even though it bothered Jack. I mean, who would't want to have a hot women take off her shoe under the table, and then run her sexy feet into my pant leg. It's really nice. It is really ashamed that John Ritter is no longer here. He is the best comedy actor around and this episode proves is with out a doubt. I would highly recommend this show to watch for any women who wants to know what the best way to hit on a guy can be, even if you are married as is the case with Mrs. Layton.
