Trivia

Because of the season five controversy, the producers reduced Chrissy's role to short phone calls. Suzanne Somers would come in and record them the day before the rest of the cast arrived to shoot the episode. Many of the phone tags were later cut when the series went into syndication. See more »

Goofs

The doorbell on the trio's apartment mostly was shown to be on the left, when facing the door, but occasionally for plot points it appeared on the right. Similarly as well the doorbell chime box inside the apartment originally was above the kitchen and later seasons it was over the front door. See more »

Quotes

Janet Wood Dawson: Oh, no, no, no, no. Don't tell anybody you're a chef, okay?
Jack Tripper: Okay, mum's the word.
Janet Wood Dawson: Well, it's not that there's anything wrong with what you do, Jack. It's just that... everybody here looks so important and we want to make a good impression. Well, you understand, don't you?
Jack Tripper: *Of course*, pumpkin.
Janet Wood Dawson: Oh, thanks.
Jack Tripper: You're ashamed of me!

this show is always great company
5 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

Come and knock on this door, "Three's Company" has been waiting for you. Jack Tripper (John Ritter) is an everyman who has to feign homosexuality to live in an apartment in Santa Monica. He lives in the apartment with sly Janet Wood (Joyce DeWitt) and ditsy Chrissy Snow (Suzanne Somers). Jack's supposed homosexuality often incurs the unpleasant-ness of sour landlord Stanley Roper (Norman Fell), whose wife Helen (Audra Lindley) always seems ready to leave him.

My favorite parts are always the dialog between Jack and Stanley. It sort of mirrors Buddy's comments about Cooley on "The Dick Van Dyke Show", what with Stanley's homophobia. Eventually, the Ropers got their own show and were replaced by Ralph Furley (Don Knotts), who would occasionally get himself into embarrassing situations.

"Three's Company" went through many changes over its run, but it never lost its timing. It's always a pleasure to catch the reruns on TVLand. Finally, I think that it's safe to say that John Ritter will truly be missed. He was always great on this show.
