Furley vs. Furley is the fourteenth episode of Season 5 of Three's Company, and the 92nd overall episode of the series.
Three's company but four's a weird crowd when a fired Ralph Furley temporarily moves in with the roommates. When Jack, who echoes ther roommates complaints over repairs that need to be done, and Ralph's complaints that he never has the resources and/or money for them, he goes over Furley's head and complains directly to Bart Furley the building's owner, as well as Ralph's mean-spirited, miserly brother, which results in Furley's firing!
Frustrated by Furley's failure to make proper repairs, Jack boldly calls the building's owner - Ralph's brother, Bart - who solves the problem by firing Furley. With no place to go, Ralph turns to the trio to put him up. They agree, but Janet and Cindy insist that Jack plead with Bart Furley to restore Ralph's job. When Jack shows up at Bart's office, he is mistaken for an applicant, and inadvertently lands the position of apartment manager. Jumping at the chance to help Furley get rehired, the three try to convince Bart that Jack is not the man for the job. But when their efforts fail and Furley sadly learns of his replacement, the roommates hatch an outrageous scheme to play on cold-hearted Bart's only weakness.
