Next, get an apartment down at the Marina. Next, get a waterbed (loosely filled for that "ocean motion" effect), restore a Trans Am that you picked up as a wreck (actually, get your partner Jon [[RidiculouslyAverageGuy who has no life]] to fix it up for you), and then have your partner help you move your stuff in, including your [[Music/TheCarpenters Carpenter]] records (they're prominently on display, to let the chicks know Ponch is sensitive). Throw in some ferns and smoked glass, and watch the chicks roll in.

* ''The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe'' - a femme fatale spy has one of these places, where she invites the title character, a violinist who is mistaken for a spy. As her superiors watch on closed-circuit tv, she goes to change, and he kicks back on the couch with a cigarette, which he promptly drops underneath him - as he flails around manically to retrieve it he hits a switch which opens the couch into a big comfy bed. His watchers admire his smooth technique.

Bob's bachelor pad looks pretty decent, almost like a model home. Of course that's just for when most people come over. Bob either hired GadgeteerGenius or is one himself, and has rigged up his house better than [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]] ever dreamed. Yet Bob isn't Q from the ''Film/JamesBond'' stories. He's a [[CasanovaWannabe cad]], and his home is rigged with the latest mechanical ways to [[FetishFuel get a woman in the mood]], from a luxurious bed from secret corners, to romantic music at the flip of a switch.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' spoofed this even more with Glen Quagmire's house. He seems to have [[MurphysBed Murphy bed]]s built into every [[strike:wall]] item in his house. ''Everything'' popped out a bed when Cleveland was chasing him with a bat. Stereo, refrigerator, and...bed.
