The Root of All Evil is the 22nd episode of Season Four of Three's Company, and the 75th overall episode of the series.
Chrissy's good fortune at the racetrack leaves the three roommates with money to burn but tempers sizzle over the distribution of the wealth.
Jack and Larry are going to the track. Chrissy gives them money to bet on the Daily Double. She picks outrageous horses who just happen to win both races. She wins $1,637.00. She insists that they split it between them and they open a joint bank account. Janet spends $75. on a bottle of wine and when Chrissy brings home a $200. stuffed giraffe they argue and stop talking to each other. Larry suggests they visit the psychologist Jack saw to build his self-confidence, Dr. Mark Prescott (Joel Brooks). They do some role-playing and finally attack a pillow, which was representing the money. They vow not to let money come between their friendship.
