Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A battle of the sexes rages between the roommates in this episode. Chrissy (Suzanne Somers) has given up food. Jack (John Ritter) has given up girls. A wager is hinging upon which of the two can hold out the longest. And speaking of "long," audiences back in 1978 didn't have to wait long at all to enjoy this entry. Originally slated to air in November, "The Fast" was moved forward to early October when ABC's coverage of the World Series playoffs ended earlier than expected.
