List of Three's Company episodes

The Not-So-Great Imposter is the ninth episode of Season 5 of Three's Company, and the 87th overall episode of the series.


A case of mistaken identity lands Jack an impressive chef's post that makes him the unwitting target of a bullying bookie and the local police.

Plot summaryEdit

While Jack is preoccupied in preparing his resume, which Cindy has offered to type, Janet is infuriated as Cindy reveals that she's been acting as an errand girl for her boss, Mr. Hadley. Janet insists that her new roommate stand up to her professional rights. But Cindy's resolve crumbles when Mr. Hadley's next day's greeting includes a bouquet of flowers, and she gladly goes off to fetch his morning coffee. Jack comes to Cindy's office to pick up his resume. However, Mr. Hadley, in search of his coffee, catches Cindy typing for Jack on company time. Jack counters with insulting accusations on Cindy's behalf, and the poor, befuddled girl is given the boot.

Note: This episode marks the first appearance of Jordan Charney in the role of Mr. Angelino. He had appeared previously as Larry's boss Mr. Layton in the Season 3 episode "Jack Moves Out".
