Plot summaryEdit

Chrissy convinces Jack to secretly prepare dinner for her and her new boyfriend, a gourmet who she has told that she can cook. Burning up with jealousy, Jack bides out in the kitchen and listens to the boyfriend both praise and criticize his cooking, while also making advances to Chrissy. One criticism too many brings Jack stomping out of the kitchen, blowing the ruse and infuriating Chrissy.

Jack and Michael Winthrop, a well gourmet chef (Jess Nadelman) get into a heated argument until Michael reveals that he's friendly with one of the world's greatest chefs, and Jack suddenly looks on Michael with admiration. Meanwhile, Roper has been putting two and two together and has decided Jack's not gay. He storms down to the trio's apartment just in time to find Chrissy alone in the living room furious with Jack for stealing her boyfriend, and Jack and Michael huddled over the stove comparing notes.
