Jack On The Lam is the Season 4 premiere episode, and also the 54th overall series episode. Written by Neil Lebowitz, the episode, which was directed by Dave Powers, originally aired on ABC-TV on September 11, 1979.
When FBI agents come to the apartment asking for Jack, he is convinced it is because he finagled an early discharge from the Navy and that they intend to send him back to finish his duty. In truth, they want Jack to act as a character reference for an old Navy friend of his, a Ben "Bippo" Miller, who was applying for a government job, and placed Jack, who had made a deal with him while outprocessing out of the U.S. Navy separation camp years earlier, to have his discharge date moved up a week as payment for losing to him in a poker game, which was all there was to do there, as Jack tells Chrissy and Janet, as he thinks that the FBI agents are there concerning the early discharge, as he thinks the navy found out about it and he's AWOL.
