Plot summaryEdit

While working in a restaurant, Jack saves a man's life with the Heimlich maneuver. The man offers Jack a rent-free luxury apartment in exchange for a gourmet dinner, but the man is only looking for a handout. The roommates have insulted Ralph Furley and told him they are leaving. Meanwhile, Furley has told off his brother because the same freeholder has offered him a (nonexistent) manager's job in a luxury apartment building. Jack helps smooth things over between Furley and his brother when the truth comes to light.
