Season three of Three's Company begins with yet another episode in which Jack (John Ritter) gets entangled in his own web of deceit. When landlord Mr. Roper (Norman Fell) overhears Jack making a date by phone, Jack pretends to be too sick to keep the date so that Roper won't tumble to the fact that Jack isn't gay. Unfortunately, Jack has already used his "bad cold" excuse to break an earlier date so that can he be with his current girlfriend. As a result of this tissue of lies, Jack is besieged by well-meaning roommates, landlords, and girlfriends, each of whom hopes to nurse him through his illness -- and each of whom threatens to expose him as a "serial prevaricator."

Janet (Joyce DeWitt) is tired of being taken for granted as "reliable" by her roommates, Jack (John Ritter) and Chrissy (Suzanne Somers). Deciding it is high time she do something daring and unexpected, Janet joins Mrs. Roper (Audra Lindley) for a protest rally at a nude beach. The result: a flustered Janet tries to make her way back home without revealing that she has lost every stitch of clothing.

As part of her job as a manuscript typist, Chrissy (Suzanne Somers) turns out several pages of a steamy diary, purportedly written by a "Wanda X." Stumbling upon the typewritten pages, Roper (Norman Fell) jumps to the conclusion that Chrissy is recalling her own carnal experiences. Then he makes a quantum leap, concluding that Chrissy has the hots for him! The best gag is reserved for last, when a capricious Chrissy and Janet (Joyce DeWitt) introduce a panting Jack (John Ritter) to the elusive "Wanda X."

A battle of the sexes rages between the roommates in this episode. Chrissy (Suzanne Somers) has given up food. Jack (John Ritter) has given up girls. A wager is hinging upon which of the two can hold out the longest. And speaking of "long," audiences back in 1978 didn't have to wait long at all to enjoy this entry. Originally slated to air in November, "The Fast" was moved forward to early October when ABC's coverage of the World Series playoffs ended earlier than expected.

Mr. Roper (Norman Fell) has a bitter falling out with his best friend, Jerry (Art Kassul) (something about a bar tab, it is rumored). Hoping to patch things up with the ex-buddies, Mrs. Roper (Audra Lindley) arranges a meeting with Jerry to talk things over. For this purpose, she asks the roommates to relinquish their apartment for one evening. Naturally, everyone suspects that something is going on between Mrs. R. and Jerry -- and no one is more suspicious, nor more obnoxious about it, than Mr. R.

Devon Ericson guest stars as Jenny Wood, Janet's younger sister. When Jenny pops into the apartment for a visit, Janet (Joyce DeWitt) asks Jack (John Ritter) to take her out. Many, many hours later, Jack somehow ends up in bed with Jenny. It's all quite innocent, of course (this is Three's Company, not Sex and the City) -- but try explaining things to the outraged Janet. (Incidentally, the name of Devon Ericson's character is an inside joke: in the original Three's Company pilot episode, the Janet Wood character was actually named Jenny).

Down in the dumps and a bit more vulnerable than usual, Chrissy (Suzanne Somers) falls for the line handed her by phony guru Rama Mageesh (played by veteran cartoon voice-over artist Michael Bell). Convincing her that he has all the answers, the guru cons Chrissy into panhandling. Then he tries to lure her to his "commune" for reasons of his own (guess what those reasons are!) -- and it is Jack (John Ritter) and Janet (Joyce DeWitt) to the rescue.

The impossible has happened: serial womanizer Larry Dallas (Richard Kline) has decided to get married. Unfortunately, Larry's fiancée, Gloria (Cecilia Hart), is only interested in his money -- or at least, the money he claims to have. When Gloria puts the moves on Jack (John Ritter), Larry thinks that Jack is betraying him. Thus it is that poor Jack has the devil's own time trying to convince Larry that Gloria is not the girl for him -- especially since the wedding date is drawing ever closer.

Jack (John Ritter) and Janet (Joyce DeWitt) suspect that something is amiss when Chrissy (Suzanne Somers) starts getting very chummy with her new boss, J.C. Braddock. And when Chrissy plans to take an overnight trip with her boss, Jack and Janet are shocked beyond belief. Determined to rescue Chrissy from the clutches of her supposedly predatory employer, the two roommates never even consider the possibility that "J.C. Braddock" might actually be a woman (played by Emmaline Henry) -- which indeed she is!

Lauri Hendler guest stars as Lauri, teenage houseguest of Mr. and Mrs. Roper (Norman Fell, Audra Lindley). The three roommates agree to babysit Lauri while the Ropers are away, never dreaming that the somewhat lonely girl might have a terrific crush on Jack (John Ritter). In fact, Lauri is so enamored of Jack that she begins plotting and planning to "get rid" of Janet (Joyce DeWitt) and Chrissy (Suzanne Somers). As if things weren't complicated enough, there's a teenage boyfriend in the equation.
