Baby, It's Cold Inside is the fourteenth episode of Season 8 of Three's Company, and the 164th overall episode in the series. Written by Chet Dowling and Sandy Krinski, and directed by Dave Powers, it first aired 17 January 1984 on ABC-TV.


When a meat cutter's strike is imminent, Jack talks Mr. Furley into helping him store a side of beef at Angelino's Restaurant, which is closed for vacation. They startle a robber, who in turn locks them into the freezer. The girls, worried about Jack being late for dinner, go to Angelino's looking for him. Unfortunately, Jack and Furley are too involved in their own panic to see the girls. Jack and Furley, now convinced they will die, have a heart to heart talk where Jack confesses that he really isn't gay.

In the meantime, the cops have arrived at the trio's apartment with the robber. The girls attack the thief to learn Jack's whereabouts. They rescue Furley and Jack, but once safe, Jack worries that Furley knows the truth about him. However, Furley puts his mind at ease when he insists Jack became delirious while in the freezer.
