MONDO EXTRAS

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

Ted and The Other Guy find John one day in a dark corner of the studio (by the pop machine) and they tell him that they're going to start casting for his fiancée the next week, and that they'd like him to be there. John agrees, but says that they need to tell Joyce before that happens. The Other Guy says that they don't want to tell Joyce until they've got the cast set and know the new show is going forward -- in other words, no sense pissing off Her Majesty the Theater Actress if the new project could still tank. Ted insists that Joyce has had a nice career on the show, and will be fine. Why, sure! I'm sure we'll see Joyce DeWitt in many future endeavors! Ted walks off, leaving John to think about what a bad, bad person he is for wronging Joyce DeWitt. She sure did get wronged a lot.

On another day, Joyce comes into the darkened studio. She walks onto the set, and is surprised to see Ted, The Other Guy, John, and some girls. "What's going on?" she asks. Ted walks over to Joyce and tells her that they're casting for Jack's fiancée. You know, all Joyce ever wanted was the truth. She's like the Demosthenes of the '70s television circuit, searching all over by the light of a L'Eggs egg, looking for one honest network executive. Ted admits to her that there's a new show, and that it will have Jack, and Jack's fiancée, but it will not have Janet. He also explains the lame-ass end of the Janet arc, in which she will have a "whirlwind romance" with her as-yet-unseen boyfriend Phillip, and then she will get married and go away and never be on television anymore, ever. Incidentally, like many people, Ted pronounces "whirlwind" as "worldwind." I bet he also says "nukyalur." John comes over and tries to soothe Joyce's shattered soul, but she is having none of it. "You knew about this," she says. "After everything we've been through, John, I expected a little more out of you." Mr. Tripper, j'accuse! And then she does a high kick right to his forehead. Okay, she doesn't. But if she had, it would have been totally justified! She is the injured party here! Sigh. She stomps off, secure in the knowledge that only she, of all these people, does not suck. John goes after her.

In Vegas, Evil Alan calls from the bed to Suzanne -- who is primping in the bathroom -- that they're looking to spin off Three's Company. She says she's heard about how they're looking to cast Jack's fiancée. She suddenly gets a look on her face like she's having a thought -- or whatever Suzanne has where other people have thoughts -- and then she emerges from the bathroom and leans on the doorjamb, looking meaningfully at Alan. He looks meaningfully back at her. "I don't know, baby, you crawling back..." he says. "I'm not crawling back. You are," she says sharply.
