As seen on: Three's Company (ABC)
Portrayed by: Norman Fell
Wives, right? Stanley Roper was married to Helen Roper on Three's Company, but you never understood why. He played the dozens on his wife (who never seemed to be playing) any chance he got and consistently rejected her advances when he'd run out of ways to joke about how old and unattractive she was. So much so, in fact, that you'd think Mr. Roper wasn't attracted to her at all.
What's the sound of one man cruelly laughing at his wife's expense? A depressing silence.
