MONDO EXTRAS

Behind the Camera: The Unauthorized Story of Three’s Company

Later, at home, Suzanne is horrified to hear that Alan walked out of the negotiations. "Go back and talk to them!" she insists. He admits to her that that won't be too easy, considering that they basically laughed at his huge demand for money, and he walked out with his tail between his legs. Suzanne begins to worry. "This is terrible, Alan, this is my entire career," she says miserably. Aw, look on the bright side, Suzanne! There's always She's the Sheriff. And someday, you and Patrick Duffy will have a gaggle of annoying children. Anyway, Alan guarantees her that the show will come back with a better offer, and tells her not to worry.

Taping night. Ted walks around the set giving everybody encouragement -- John thinks the script pages are great, Joyce will break a leg...all is well! He runs into Norman, however, who is back from the failed The Ropers experiment, and ready to collect on the earlier promise that he could come back to the show if the spinoff flopped. Ted breaks it to him that Don is doing such a great job that there's no place for him anymore. Norman says that his deal was that he could come back, but Ted points out that the deal was only that he could come back if his show didn't last a season, which it did. So Norman is out of luck. Bye, Norman. Don't let the balsa-wood door hit you on the way out.

Next, Ted runs into Suzanne. He rides her about Evil Alan walking out of the negotiations, and she counters that the offer was a joke. "Your husband is going to ruin your career," Ted warns loudly, not to mention correctly. "Stay away from me!" Suzanne snaps. She walks by Norman as she leaves, and Norman then turns to Ted and points out that things have really changed. "What happened?" Norman asks. "Suzanne happened," Ted predictably replies.

Back at home, Suzanne mopes to Evil Alan about how bad the situation on the set is. She wonders if asking for a 500% percent raise was actually such a good idea. "The real problem is they didn't take us seriously," Evil Alan tells her. And how will they get the show to take them seriously? "We fight," Alan tells her. When he tells her that this time they'll be fighting with "the big guns," I momentarily wonder if he's referring to her chest, but I guess not.

Actual Factual Joyce DeWitt is back on the theater set, talking to the camera about how dangerous it is to believe your own press. "That'll usually take you somewhere you didn't really want to go," she says, all sad and serious. Could that be foreshadowing, too?
