yeah, jack. stop interrupting. go ahead, janet. well, maxine said... who's maxine? she's the tenant in 301. you know, the redhead with the beautiful soft skin. i thought you said you never touched her. well, uh... only around the elbow. i took her arm once to help her across the street. yeah! anybody want to hear this? yeah, but you keep stopping. maxine said that roper came upstairs this morning and raised her rent $75. $75? oh, poor maxine. yeah... poor us. she lives in a furnished apartment, too. if he raised her rent, he'll raise ours. i can hardly afford what i'm paying now! i know. i know i can't make it. me neither. i'm stretching it as far as i can now. we're all stretching a bit. not as well as chrissy, but... what are we going to do? we'll fight him. we'll take him to court. yeah, yeah.
legally, he can raise the rent if he wants to. well... what about mrs. roper? she's on our side. maybe she can talk him out of doing it. uh-uh. not when it comes to money. ( sighs ) well, don't you two have any ideas? do i have to do all the thinking around here? we can't let that happen, no. i got it. what? what? what does roper really want? a raise in the rent. no. then we don't have anything to worry about. no, chrissy, look. i know this guy. what he really wants is people to respect him. people to admire him, people to pay attention to him. he wants people to love him. and we're going to see that he gets that. we can't afford to hire all those people. chrissy, honey, i think the people jack's talking about are us. right.
when he gets here, we'll... we'll butter him up flatter him and treat him like he's one of the family. he's right. a member of your own family can't raise the rent. it would be like, um... incest! ( phone ringing ) would you get that, helen? i'm working on my books. well, i'm working on my face. i'll get it. your job is tougher than mine. hello. oh, hi, jack. i'm fine. she's fine. we're both fine. the building is fine. everything's fine. now, what can i do for you? you want to what? oh, hang on.
oh, isn't that sweet? tell him we'll be delighted. mrs. roper will be delighted. me? it depends on what you're serving. oh, stanley, when people invite you to dinner you don't say things like that to them. we'll be there. he wants us there by 7:00. what are they serving? lamb chops, mashed potatoes and peas salad and hot cocoa. i don't like it. but those are your favorite dishes. that's just what i mean. i smell a rat, helen. oh, stanley, you're always so suspicious. they just want your company, that's all. why would people want my company? i've been asking myself that for years. the rent. what? they know i'm thinking of raising the rent. you are? why? well, everything's going up.
water is going up, gas is going up. don't forget-- there's an energy shortage. how can i forget? you remind me every night. anyway, i'm raising the rents $75. seventy-fi..? oh, stanley! those few little things couldn't come to $75 a month. what about my services? isn't that worth something? i mean, can you name anybody in this building who can't get me when they need me? how's that? oh, it's perfect. roper's got to be impressed. jack, this is absolutely the last time i'm going to run out to that market for you by myself. why? some creep wanted to carry this home for me. what's wrong with that? he meant his home. ( phone ringing ) i'll get it. you okay?
oh, good. you had me worried. any guy who would steal a bag of groceries-- there's no telling what he might do. did you get it all? yeah, i got everything on the list. oh, and i had 89 cents left over so i got a nice bottle of wine for mr. roper. 89 cents? yeah, well, it was the cheapest i could find. you could have shopped around. you're in the regal beagle? well, you're just around the corner from here. do you want to talk to jack? oh, okay. great. all right. bye-bye. who was that? a friend of yours. wanted to know if you were in the navy. what did you tell him? i said no, you were in the kitchen. i'll bet he is still trying to figure that one out. no! it's a joke. he got it right away.
he said that he knew a jack tripper in the navy who was from san diego and he figured it must be you so he wanted to drop in and say hello. did he give his name? yeah. jim walsh. whoa! oh! jim wa... jim walsh?! he said you'd remember him. who's jim walsh? a navy friend of jack's. jim walsh never had a friend. nobody liked him. that was the one thing we could all agree on. this guy is a maniac. chrissy, if he calls again... he's not. oh, good. he's coming over. ( moans ) he's coming here tonight? yeah, well, he's in the regal beagle. the one night we're trying to get on roper's good side along comes jim walsh, who'll ruin everything. oh, jack, maybe it's not so bad. maybe he's changed. not jim walsh. that's the meanest person i ever met. one time this guy next to him sat on his hat by accident. jim walsh hauled off and broke his jaw and when the guy's friends tried to help jim walsh beat them up, too. couldn't anybody stop him?
to drag him out of the church. i don't believe you. it's true. the last time we met, we had a fight. you did? why? it was something i said. what did you say? i think it was "hello." they had to call the shore patrol. he put me in sick bay for a week. ( knocking on door ) he must be here. uh... well, maybe he just wants to call and talk over old times. maybe he wants to finish the fight. whatever he wants, i'll be ready for him! uh, jack? what?! i think you should take off your apron. huh?! take off the apron! i was going to. oh! be calm. ( knocking continues ) i'm calm. chrissy: let's just be calm. jack tripper, please? jim walsh?! jack? is that you? jim... jim walsh jack? i had no idea that...
