Chrissy's trip to Fresno has left the roommates short on the rent this month. Jack, Janet, and Larry all maneuver to fill the "third roommate" spot with their respective choices. However, it's Cindy Snow, Chrissy's eager cousin, who comes to stay after a rather clumsy introduction.  

Plot summaryEdit

When Chrissy, who's still home in Fresno taking care of her sick mother, can't come up with her share of the rent, Furley issues an ultimatum: Jack and Janet will have to find a temporary roommate or move out. Everyone gets in on the search for the new resident of their dreams. Furley finds middle—aged Mrs. Medford, while Larry proposes his luscious love, Jennifer. But just as the choice narrows down to a heated toss-up between Jack's girlfriend or Janet's boyfriend, Chrissy's pretty cousin Cindy arrives, enthusiastically expecting to stay in Chrissy's stead.
