Terri? Terri?


Oh, Terri! Look! Come here!

Come out here, quick!

Come here! Come here! What's up?

Phillip just now drove me home

and you will never
guess what happened.

He asked you to marry him.

Yeah. He ask...

How did you know that?

By that silly look on his face

every time he's near you.

I mean, I knew it
was gonna happen!

Well, why didn't you tell me?

And spoil his surprise?

You just spoiled mine!

Oh, I'm sorry, honey.

We have to sit down.

Come on, we have to sit down.

Come on. Okay. Okay.

Oh, gosh, Terri, I
wish Jack were here

and then I could tell him, too.

Jack wishes he were here, too.

Isn't he having a good
time in San Francisco?

No. He called and
said it was the last time

that he goes to a
chef's convention.

Why? The food was awful.

Oh, poor Jack.

I mean, it's bad enough
that he had to fly up there.

No, no, he said that he had

a very nice flight this time.

You're kidding. You mean he's...

He's not afraid to fly anymore.

Well, what do ya know?

Little Jack Tripper can
finally get on a plane,

relax, and enjoy himself.




Are you all right?

Me? Uh, sure.

Sure, I'm... I'm
fine. I'm... I'm fine.


Don't leave me!

I'm just... I'm just...

It's all right.

I'm sorry. It's
just, uh... It's okay.

Now, this aircraft
is perfectly safe.

Is it really. Mm-hmm.

So why don't you
just sit back and relax?

Okay, I'll... I'll try.

Thank you, uh...


You're welcome, Mr...


Mr. Jack.

Uh, Vic... Vicky? Vicky? Vicky?

Vicky! Vicky! What's the matter?

Uh, that bump, I think we just
hit a mountain or something...

Maybe I better get you a drink.

That would be nice.

Beer, Scotch, bourbon, gin?

That would be nice.

I'll fix you a gin and tonic.

Ladies and gentlemen,

please fasten your seatbelts.

We are experiencing
some mild turbulence.

Thank you.

This is it. Vicky?


I'm sorry, sir.

I think the prize
is still in here.

Uh, excuse me, Vicky?

Excuse me, please
go back to your seat.

Yeah, but, uh, it's going like
this. Are we in any danger?

No, no. It's just a
little turbulence. Oh.

Now go back to your seat
and I'll bring your drink.

Oh, well, I'll
save you the trip.

Oh! Uh...

I can't believe I... Listen, I'll
get something to clean you off.

No, it's all right. I'll get it.

Just, please, sit down.

Well, I'll...

Ooh! Oh!

Well, at least you
got me to sit down.

Oh, no! It's stuck.

You kidding?

Are... Help!

Oh, I'm sorry. Excuse me.

I'm sorry.

Are you... are
you all right? Yes.

Listen, is it safe in here?

I promise I won't lay a
hand on you. Oh, good.

You come here often?

Wait a second. Boy, you...

You smell wonderful.

What is that you're wearing?

Gin and tonic.

I'm sor... I seem to be
saying all the wrong things.

So I noticed.

Tell me, uh, is
this your usual style

or are you just
having an off day?

This is an off day, all right.

Look at this. I can't...

You cannot believe
the dumb things

I've been doing today.

First of all, I left
my wallet in the taxi,

then I miss my plane,
and then I spill a drink

all over you, and then...

You get locked in
the bathroom with me.

Uh, no, no, that's the only

nice thing that's
happened to me today.


Well, thank you.

Listen, um...

do you have to fly

right back to San Francisco?

No. I live in L.A.


Do you, um... Do
you like French food?

Why? Do you wanna
spill some on me?

Uh, no. See, I, um...

I happen to own a
little French restaurant

and I thought maybe,
you know, I'd love you

to be my guest
at dinner tonight.




She opened the door!

Oh, excuse me! No, no, no!

No, no, no!

Help! Excuse me.

Uh, here you are.

You know how much you want.

Go ahead. Vicky!

Hi, Jack. Hi.

Welcome, welcome. Thank you.

Come over here. I've
got a table all ready for us.

Oh... this is lovely.

Well, thanks a lot.

You know, I've prepared
an exquisite meal

that I know you're
really going to enjoy.

Sounds like it's going
to be a great evening.

It already is.

I'll be right back.

This is one of those
off-the-wall paintings.

Excuse me.

Good evening, Victoria.

Oh, Dad...

What are you doing here?

I might ask the
same of you. What?

Do you realize that
right now, as we speak,

cocktails are being
served at the Benfields'?

And everyone is asking,
"What's keeping Victoria

and her delightful father?"

Benfield dinner?

Oh, my God, I
forgot all about it.

Apparently so. Luckily,
I called your roommate

and she told me where you were.

I'm sorry. I thought
you would be.

Shall we go? But, Dad...

I have a dinner date.

We both do at the Benfields'.

Oh, but I really like this guy.

Hey! What do you think
this is? A "singles" bar?

Back off! Oh, Jack!

I'll handle this, Vicky.

You ought to be
ashamed of yourself, pal.

You're old enough
to be her father.

Jack, this is my father.

I don't care... Your
Fath... Your Ff...

This is your father...
I'm so... sorry, sir.

I didn't rec... I should
have seen the resemblance.

This is, but I'm
terrib... I hope I didn't...

You don't have to grovel.

I don't mind.

Daddy, this is Jack Tripper.

He's my date tonight.

You're going out with a waiter?

He's not a waiter.
He owns this place.

Oh! Oh, really.

Well, it's not very much.

My thought exactly.

Shall we go?


You see, Jack, I forgot to...

Allow me, Victoria.
I must apologize

for my daughter's
lapse of memory.

She completely forgot we
have a dinner date this evening.

Come on, Dad. Can't we at least

have a glass of
wine before we go?


Very well. Great.
Why don't you sit here.

Sir, head of the table for you.

Thank you. Here you go.

And here's a little
vino for you, Vicky.

Thank you. For you. None for me.

So here we...

Excuse me, it just... Ha! There.

Good year.

But not for me.

Where did you meet this person?

On the plane from San Francisco.

Ah, yes. The friendly skies.

Victoria, we really must go.

Oh, Dad.

Remember, Roger
Willoughby is expecting you

to be his dinner partner.

Roger Willoughby?

Her fiancé.

He is not my fiancé.

Just a matter of time.

Now, there's a fine young man,
good family, Harvard graduate.

By the way, where
did you go to school?

San Diego High.

And then?

And then I graduated.


Let's go.

Jack, I'm really
sorry about dinner.

It's okay.

Maybe some other time, huh?

Sure, some other time. Victoria,

don't you ever meet
anyone from First Class?

Hi. Hi.

May I come in?

Sure. Of course.
Uh, come in. Thanks.

Do you have any
of that wine left?

Sure. Yeah. Why don't I
sit down while you get it?

I mean, why don't you
get it while I sit down? No...

Why don't you get
it while I sit down?

Oh, what a good idea.

Here you are. Thank you.

So... So?

So how... how was the party?


What did they serve for dinner?

Roast chicken.

And? Then what?

And mashed potatoes.

And? And carrots.


And are you glad
to see me or not?

Yes! Well then, why
don't you say so?

I'm glad to see
you! That's better.

What'd you have
for dessert? Jack.

No, I'm... I'm kidding.

So... So?

So... how come that guy
Rog let you out of his sight?

Oh, Jack, Roger
means nothing to me.

Yeah, but your father... Well,
he means a lot to my father.

Dad likes everything about him:

his family, his
money, his position,

and his Harvard diploma.

He must hate me. Oh, no!

He likes me? Oh, no.

But he doesn't hate you.

What do you say we
forget about my father?

Boy, I'll drink to that.

Well, can't you think of
something better to drink to?

Yeah, I think so.

Here's to whatever it was
that brought us together.

I don't know.
Fate, chance, luck?

The bathroom on
Flight 701. That was it!

God, you are so pretty.


Wow. That wine works fast.

It's not the wine, it...

You know, I've been
thinking about you all night.

I've been thinking
about you, too.

I wish you woulda told
me that before you left!

Why? Well, then when
I was thinking of you,

I could've been thinking
that you were thinking of me,

instead of thinking you
didn't think much of me.

Was that what you
thought? I think so. I'm not...

Jack, come here.


Good morning, Terri.

Morning, Janet.

Well? What did Jack say when you
told him that you were getting married?

I didn't tell him yet.

I fell asleep before
he got home last night.

Boy, is he gonna be surprised.

Why? You weren't.

That's because I know you.

Yeah, but so does Jack.

I bet he doesn't guess this.

Okay, we'll see.

Hey, listen, ladies.

I have got to tell you about
this girl I met last night.

Jack, something very
important has happened to me,

and I'm wondering
if you can guess.

That's cheating! Shh!

Jack, I have invited Phillip
over here this evening.

Oh, I get it.

You want Terri
and me to get lost

so you guys can... No!

No, I would like for
both of you to be here.

Well, Janet, you
know, I'd like to,

but this is my night off, and I
thought I... Oh, please, Jack!


I want you and Terri,
my very best friends,

to get to know Phillip better
because it's very important to me.

Now, think, Jack. Think.

♪ Dum dump de dum ♪

♪ Dum dump de dum ♪

Quiet, Terri, I'm
trying to think.

Jack, Phillip and I
are getting married.


You're... You're
getting married?

Janet! Oh, Janet,

I... Really? Yes.

Oh, congratulations!
Thank you, Jack. Thank you.

Have you set the
date yet? Oh, no, no.

First we have to
find a place to live.

And then Phillip said
that... A place to live?


Yeah. You didn't think

that they were gonna
move in here, did ya?

Well, no, of course not.

It's just... I knew
that. I'm ju...

You okay, Jack, honey?
Huh? Me? Yeah, sure.

I'm fine. I'm just...

I'm just thinking that...

Jack... You know, it's, uh...

when you said you're
looking for a place to live,

it just hit me.

No more Janet.

Oh, come on. I'm not
movi" to another planet.

I'm gonna be livi" right
here in the very same city.

Yeah, but you
won't be here, see?

And, um, I'm kinda used to you.

I'll tell you what, Jack.

If it'll make you feel better,

you can come over every
single night for dinner.

You really mean that? Mm-hmm.

Somebody's gotta teach me
how to cook. That's for sure.

Aw, Janet, see, that's one
of the things I love about you.

You can always
make me feel good.

Thank you, Jack.

Um, I'm really going
to miss you, Jack.

Oh, hey, hey, Jan. Hey, Janet.

Come on, now, you're gonna
be the happiest girl in the world.

Or maybe not.


It's just that

we have had so much
fun in this apartment.

Ain't that the truth.

I mean, we... we...

Hey, Jan, Jan...

Janet, come on,
hey, Janet, look.

Come here, honey.
Come here. Come here.

No, I wanna see a little smile.

Not that little.
No, I want a little...

A little, big smile. All right.

Janet, you're gonna be so happy.

Now look at me.

Let's make a pact, all right?

Sure, Jack.

No more tears.

Okay, Jack.

No more tears. That's my girl.

Thank you.

Everything all right?

Yeah, Terri.
Everything's just great.

Oh, Janet, I'm gonna miss you.

I'm going to miss
you too, Terri.

Oh, Jack, honey.

I'll get it, Terri.

Hello? Hi, Vicky. Vicky!

Did you get my message?

Mm-hmm. All seven of them.

Oh, tonight?

Uh, yes, it's a very
special occasion.

I want you to meet the
friends I told you about.

You have a date?

Yeah. I made it last
week, before I met you.

No, Jack, I can't break it.

Not at the last minute.

That wouldn't be fair.

Yeah, well, couldn't
you find some way

to just come over here for a few
minutes, please, Vicky? Please?

Well, if it means that
much to you, I'll try.

Hey, that's all I'm
asking, that you just try.

Get over here quick.


Oh, Jack.

What do you think
of my new dress?

Janet, it's gorgeous.

Thank you.

I'll find something better.

Phil! How you doin'? Come
on in. Thanks. Thank you.

Good to see ya. Yeah.

Why, Phil, how nice to see you.

It's nice to see you too, Terri.

Hors d'oeuvre? Why don't
we sit on the couch here?

Phil, listen, Jan'll be
ready in just a minute.

Great. Great.

So, Phil,

we understand you're
looking for a place to live.


What sort of place?

Oh, just a
one-bedroom apartment.

One bedroom? What
about the children?

Terri, you sound
like Janet's mother.

Next you'll be asking Phil
how much money he makes.

How much, Phil?

Hello, Phillip.

Oh, hi, Janet.

Hi, honey.

You look beautiful.

Oh, this? First thing I grabbed
out of the closet and just threw on.


Champagne, honey, guys,
you're really going all out.

You said it.

Now, this is very expensive,

so the marriage better
last, you know what I mean?

Don't worry, Jack. It will.

So, well, how
'bout a toast, Jack?

Okay. All right.

I'll make it short and
sweet, just like Janet.

Thanks, Phil. Okay.

Janet and Phillip, may you
cherish and love each other forever.

Oh! Thanks, Jack.

Oh, that must be Vicky. Who?

Uh, it's a girl I want
you guys to meet.

Must be somebody special.

No, no, she's just
a girl, that's all.

No big deal.

Hi, Jack. Hi, Vicky.

You look so good.

Thanks. Listen, I want you to
meet my two very best friends.

Vicky, this is, um...

Janet. Yes, that's right,

Janet. No big deal, huh?

This is my other
roommate, Nurse Terri.

They're both my roommate.

Hi, how are you?

And that there is Phillip,
that's Janet's roommate-to-be.

How do you do?

- Congratulations to you both.
- Thank you.

Vicky, would you like some
champagne? Hors d'oeurvres?

Oh, no, I'm going out to dinner.

Jack, you're not
leaving us, are you? No,

not me, just Vicky. What?

Well, I had a
previous engagement.

We talked about... She
couldn't get... It was a whole...

Can I show you our
kitchen for a second?

Hey, I like your
roommates, Jack.

Oh, thanks, Vicky.

Listen, um, about this guy

you're going out with tonight.

Oh, you mean Rex?


Well, yeah.

Oh, you're not jealous, are you?

Jealous? Me?

Wait, now, you gotta
understand something.

What you did before you met
me is none of my business, is it?


What did you do?
I mean, did you...

No, it's none of my business.

Oh, that must be my date.

Your date?

I'll get it.

You told him to
pick you up here?

Jack, it was the only way I
could spend any time with you.

Oh, yeah, well, that
was a good idea.

Hi. Vicky told me
to meet her here.

You're Rex? Yes, I'm supposed
to pick her up at this add...

I'll get her.

Jack, why did you slam the door?

No no no, it just
slipped, sorry about that.

Are you all right?
Sure, I'm fine.

Now, you go have a
good time with Sex. Rex!


Well, goodnight. It
was nice meeting you.

Good bye, nice meeting you.

'Night, Jack. 'Night.

Hi, Rex. Hi, Vicky.


Gee, Jack, Vicky is lovely.

Yeah. Yeah, she's
very attractive.

Terri, what do you think? Hmm?

I'm still thinking about
that gorgeous hunk, Rex.

Thanks a lot!

Oh, Jack, I'm
sorry. I didn't mean...

Don't worry, it's
okay. I'll take care of it.

Jack... She went out with him.

She actually went out
with the Wonder Horse.

She did tell you
that she had a date.

Janet, don't make
excuses for her, all right?

What? I mean, come on.

Flaunting that
boyfriend of hers?

Did you see that?
And then parading him

up and down in
front of you and Terri

like he's Mr. America.

Jack, calm down. I'm
calm. I'm calm. I'm calm.

It doesn't bother me that
much, you understand?

And if she thinks it bothers me,
she's got another think coming.

Okay? I made a mistake, but
forget it, it's over, done with, finished.

Jack, you are in bigger
trouble than you know.

What? You're in love.

I'm in...
