Three's Company

Mate for Each Other - S6-E26

Trivia: In the episode where Janet asks Jack if she's a bad kisser, take a look at Janet when he kisses her. Jack unexpectedly slip Janet his tongue (which surprises the audience as well) and that throws Janet off and shocks her. Her surprised face is not acting, and was really surprised he did that. You'll also notice that when they part, she can't keep a straight face.

Trivia: Once the first season with Terri started, Cindy no longer had "Snow" mentioned as her last name for the remainder of the episodes she was in (possibly due to the fact that this was the first season that started without Suzanne Somers completely and the producers wanted to retire the "Snow" surname altogether).

Trivia: Of all 5 roommates (Jack, Janet, Chrissy, Cindy, Terri), the only parent of a roommate never to appear in any episode is Cindy's mother.

An Anniversary Surprise - S3-E20

Trivia: Many TV stations over the years left out the original ending scene (the small party held before the Ropers leave). This scene explains how The New Landlord Mr. Furley knew Jack was supposedly gay in the first episode without anyone mentioning it. This ending reveals Roper told the new owners Jack was gay. Without seeing this ending, the storyline is unclear.

Trivia: Jeffrey Tambor, Anne Schedeen, and Jordan Charney have all guest starred in episodes involving Chrissy, Cindy, and Terri. (To avoid confusion, Tambor's episode with Chrissy was technically an episode of "The Ropers" but in recent years played in syndication as "Three's Company").

Strange Bedfellows - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Mr. Roper tries to explain to the girls and his wife what he was doing in Jack's bedroom, watch over Mr. Roper's left shoulder on the shelf. The number of yellow cans on the shelf keep alternating between one and two cans throughout several minutes. In addition, also notice the suitcase on the floor under the shelf as well. Whenever one yellow can is shown, the suitcase is by itself and whenever two yellow cans are shown, there is a square silver bag in front of the suitcase.

Show generally

Question: What is the picture of women on the walls of the set? Not the butterfly picture, the others.

Answer: I believe you are referring to the artwork of Alphonse Mucha. On the wall next to the front door was "Feather" (which is one half of "Primrose and Feather"). Above the telephone in early episodes was "Zodiac". Also seen through The Apartment was "Spring" and "Autumn".
