Jack's 10 is the nineteenth episode of Season 6 of Three's Company, and the 119th overall episode of the series. Written by Ken Hecht and directed by Dave Powers, it first aired 23 February 1982 on ABC.


After meeting a rich woman named Denise on a blind date, which Larry sets up, Jack brings her home to meet Terri and Janet. The girls soon see that Jack's new girlfriend, Denise, is not as nice as she seems, and even wants Jack to dress differently and work for her father's cardboard box company instead of following his dream of being a chef. When Denise talks Jack into getting married, the girls panic. Denise even wins over Larry when he tries to break them up at the request of Janet and Terri. Unable to beat around the bush any longer, Janet confronts Jack in his room. Meanwhile, Denise overhears and misinterprets the conversation. Her accusation that Jack has a thing going with his two roommates wakes Jack up to what Denise really is. Jack says a "permanent" goodbye to Denise, and his roommates console him.
