Jack's Other Mother Janet's Secret
List of Three's Company episodes

Make Room for Daddy is the eleventh episode of Season 5 of Three's Company, and the 89th overall episode of the series.


Jack plays cupid to his girlfriend's widowed father, but his arrows misfire when the love-starved older man makes Janet his target.

Plot summaryEdit

Jack's anxious desire for Janet and Cindy to leave him alone in the apartment awaiting his luscious, Cheryl Gainer (Janice Kent), turns into panic when the Gainer who arrives is Cheryl's father, Andrew (Keene Curtis). Jack' s double-talking excuses turn out to be unnecessary. A lonely widower, Andrew is ready to get back into circulation and who better to advise him about women than a man with two female roommates? But after giving Mr. Gainer a step-by-step course in seduction, Jack is horrified when his pupil decides to try his technique on Janet. And when a flattered Janet agrees to cocktails at a darkly intimate hideaway, Jack can't wait for Cheryl to arrive - to follow the would-be lovers in hot pursuit.

Note: Suzanne Somers makes another cameo appearance in this episode.
