Alias Jack Tripper was the fifth episode of Season 8 of Three's Company, the 155th overall episode in the series. Written by Mark Tuttle, the episode was directed by Dave Powers. It first aired on ABC-TV on November 1, 1983.
Jack has two dates, so he talks Larry into posing as him and spending the day with his unwanted date, Janet's childhood friend, who is visiting from out of town.
After finally getting a date with Sharon Gordon, Jack is reminded by Janet that he promised to spend the day with her childhood friend, Agnes Platt, who's in from out-of-town and dying to meet Jack. Not wanting to upset Janet or Sharon, Jack talks Larry into taking Agnes out, with Larry posing as Jack. It turns out that Agnes and "Jack" (Larry) hit it off so well that Agnes cancels her flight and invites Janet and Terri to join her and "Jack" (Larry) for drinks. The real Jack tries to keep the girls from finding out about their switch and almost pulls it off until Sharon Gordon arrives, blowing their cover. And Jack, who started out with two dates, ends up with none.
