The Brunch was the ninth episode of Season 7 of Three's Company, the 137th overall episode in the series. Written by George Burditt and Budd Grossman, the episode was directed by Dave Powers. It first aired on ABC-TV on December 7, 1982.


Jack hosts a Sunday brunch to convince the Reverend Gilmore that the Bistro is a respectable establishment. He succeeds until the newlywed couple at the next table begin their honeymoon.


When Jack Bistro's liquor license is being revoked by the Reverend Gilmore, Jack discovers his restaurant was formerly a hooker's haven. Mr. Angelino's solution is for Jack to show the Reverend what a respectable place he's running by holding a Sunday Brunch. Everything appears holier than thou until two newlyweds arrive and begin their honeymoon beside the Reverend's table.

Jack and the girls do their best to camouflage the couple, but when Furley and Larry's date both get soused on champagne, everything becomes a disaster. The Reverend is appalled. However, one of the Reverend's own saints, Mrs. Arlington, who donates her riches to the church, saves the day by recognizing Jack's hospitality.
