Jack Gets His is the fifth episode of Season 7 of Three's Company, and the 133rd overall episode of the series. Written by Martin Rips and Joseph Staretski and directed by Dave Powers, it first aired 9 November 1982 on ABC.


Mr. Angelino cons Jack into renting a small, vacant, dilapidated storefront restaurant in dire need of repairs and renovation, which at first, he was trying to unload to "any sucker" at the highest bid, by promoting it as a wonderful opportunity for a young chef to run his own restaurant. Jack, extremely excited by his new venture, brings the girls, Larry, and Furley down to see it that night. The place turns out to be a totally run-down disaster! Jack is despondent, estimating it would cost a couple thousand dollars to fix it up, but Furley, Larry, and the girls offer to do the renovating.

Convinced by Larry that he could get a loan, Jack goes to the bank. He unknowingly offends the female loan officer. After the roommates withdrew his entire savings a day earlier to help fund the renovation, he had little more than five dollars left in it. He is turned down for the loan after attempting ask her for a date! He returns home to find that the girls have already ordered the materials and spent his life savings. Nevertheless, the work on the restaurant begins when the roommates are able to get Furley to lend him the remaining money Jack needed to pay the first months rent, which was about $800, which shut up Angelino, who was, at first browbeating Jack, who didn't have money needed, and also to Furley's unwelcomed shock when he learned the amount that Angelino made the check he endorsed for him for the restaurant.
