Then John Ritter ("Three's Company" and "Three's a Crowd") passed away suddenly. Due to Ritter's passing, the title was shortened to "8 Simple Rules". You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck.
The second season found the Hennessy's dealing with the loss of their beloved husband and father. In episode #16, "Come and Knock on Our Door", the set of John Ritter's 1977-1984 sitcom, "Three's Company" was rebuilt to the exact same specifications! If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure as heck not picking anything up. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them. I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips.
At Paul's side is his wife Cate (Katey Sagal), who is returning to work after years as a housewife and mother.
There was nothing surprising about this genial series in happier days, and there was nothing surprising about what one of the ratings hotlines labeled “the death episode.” The hour delivered lots of group hugs, tears and platitudes about the unfairness of such a loss, best delivered by an avuncular James Garner.
After some playful banter among the kids reminding us what the series had been about, Cate (Katey Sagal) receives a phone call, learning that her husband Paul has collapsed at the grocery store.
Soon, Cate’s “bitterly divorced” parents, played by Garner and Suzanne Pleshette, arrive to provide moral support.
In 2004, John also received a posthumous Emmy nomination for "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series".
Katey Sagal hosted the final episodes featuring John and as a further tribute to his memory, the very first episode without him, "Goodbye - Parts 1 & 2" were filmed without laugh tracks or a studio audience.
