Larry offers a job for Jack to be a live-in cook for his boss and his wife, the Laytons. While Jack is not too thrilled about the idea at first, he later seriously considers it when he gets into an argument with Janet and Chrissy. He, therefore, moves out and gets dinner for the night for the Laytons. However, Jack got more than he bargained for when Mrs. Layton makes passes at him, and Janet and Chrissy are stuck in the apartment trying to learn how to cook and learn how to protect themselves.

what exactly was she trying to do
27 September 2007 | by onederboi779See all my reviews

I've seen this episode before and never figured out what she was actually trying to do to jack.i mean she did eventually make him laugh. there was a similar scene to this one in the movie weekend at bernies.later in the reagle beagle larry tells jack that she does that to everyone so does that mean that her husband knows that about her?you could definitely see how nervous jack was and then to find out that she does that with everyone he was probably thinking he should have listened to her when she said that there was nothing to be nervous about.its to bad we didn't get to see her husbands reaction when he came home and saw that jack was gone.
