About Mr. LaytonEdit
When the fed up Jack, after an arguement with the girls, decides to move out of the apartment, he, on a tip from Larry, suggests that he sees his boss, Mr. Layton, who was looking for a live-in chef to prepare meals for he and his wife. On Jack's first evening on the job, he prepares a coq au vin Van dinner, which Mr. Layton likes. However, what Larry did not tell Jack about, was the vampish ways of amourous, sex-starved Mrs. Layton, who has a reputation of flirting with any man other than her husband that she's introduced to! Mrs. Layton just can't seem to keep her hands and silky pantyhose foot off of Jack; which Mr. Layton, who doesn't realize that his wife is trying to come on to Jack passes off as "she's always friendly who whom she meets!"
