Indeed. The Three's Company episode in question, episode 98 entitled "Dying to Meet You" had Jack faking his death so that a jealous guy wouldn't beat him up, or something of that nature. It came in the Season 5 run of shows that sucked after Suzanne Somers left the show over a contract dispute.

Yeah, Cindy was no Chrissy, but then again, Cindy & Chrissy couldn't hold a candle to Terri. I think I was 4 when Terri joined the cast (In 1981, right?). Because I grew up with her, she's my fav as the 3rd roommate. (I still say Jack and Janet should have hooked up and had their own show, instead of that actress that Ritter had ZERO chemistry with)
(I liked the streetwise Season 1 Chrissy more than the dumb blonde she evolved into; they did that in M*A*S*H with radar. He was a streetwise kid, with a girl back home, and evolved him into a naive country kid after his girl got married to his best friend. Don't get me started on how Spearchucker dissappeared and NO ONE noticed his bunk go empty [and used as a VIP bunk for Dr. Freedman] for the rest of the war
For those not in the know, Spearchucker dissappeared in a puff of logic)

On a related note, did you ever see the Saturday Night Live sketch featuring a fake commercial for "Bad Idea Jeans". It was a takeoff on those Dockers commercials that used to run in the early 90s which just featured a bunch of guys sitting around talking, coupled with shots of their pants.
Anyway, the gimmick is that the guys are all discussing things they plan on doing, each of which is a horrible idea. (Normally I wear protection, but then I thought, "When am I gonna make it back to Haiti?") Phil Hartman is in the sketch, playing "Guy #3" according to the link above, and he says "I thought about it, and even though it's over, I'm going to tell my wife about the affair."

I saw that episode last night and thought the exact same thing! I thought they would have been hyper-sensitive about it and pulled it off the airwaves like they did with just about any movie or TV show featuring an airplane after 9/11.

Funny, I saw the episode last night and didn't even think of that. There was one other episode that wasn't as much of a coincidence as the one in question, but I think Jack faked taking pills and for a moment and played dead on the couch to get back at Chrissy and Janet (who knew he was obviously joking). For some reason *that* made me think of his death, and not the other, more obvious episode.
My wife and I are now hooked on the Nick at Night Three's Company re-reruns. We are actually insane enough to watch both back to back, from 1:00-2:00 am. Maybe this explains my recent sleeping problems and my inability to...fokus on these post../
(P.S. Poll on most attractive guest actress on Three's Company. I'm going with the brunette girl who worked in a gym with the big, over-protective brother.)
