Room at the Bottom is the sixth episode of season five of Three's Company, and the 84th overall episode of the series.


Jack has to do a lot of double-talking when, on his first night as busboy at a posh French restaurant; the gang comes to dinner expecting him to be the head chef.  

Plot summaryEdit

Janet and Larry are worried when Jack quits his job at a hamburger joint and cockily applies for a job in the kitchen at Lucien's, one of the most elegant dining spots in town. His high marks and recommendation from the dean of his cooking school do the trick. Jack is hired - as a busboy! His friends are overjoyed that the interview was a success and conclude that he will be working as a chef. Jack can't bear to tell than the truth.

Note: Suzanne Somers does not appear in this episode.
