Jack and Terri are having a drink at the Beagle when an obnoxious drunk approaches and starts hitting on Terri, Jack tries to handle him but the guy seizes him in a hard grip and has him humiliatingly subdued when Terri steps in and immobilizes the guy with a few self-defense tricks. Everyone at the Beagle bursts into applause for Terri and Jack is clearly embarrassed.
Back at the apartment, when Larry comes over to congratulate Terri, Jack, embarrassed, tries to save face by making up a story about the incident, saying that "he didn't want to hit a defenseless drunk but he was about to make his move" when Terri steps in. Terri then teaches Jack some "self defense" moves. Mr. Furley bursts in, incoherent with excitement as there is a mugger outside. They all dash out at see a big guy struggling with a smaller guy. Jack does to the big guy what Terri has taught him, knocking him to the ground. The man rises and shows his badge; he's a cop.
