Episode Summary

When Charles (SCOTT BAIO) and Buddy (WILLIE AAMES) foil an attempted holdup at the pizza parlor, their names appear in the local newspaper. They can't resist capitalizing on their newfound popularity with the girls at the sorority house. The holdup man is released on bail, and the boys change their tune, remembering that he threatened to get even with them. A strange man then calls to say he'll be coming to the house. Everyone joins in barricading the doors and windows. When the caller, who turns out to be a reporter, arrives to interview Charles and Buddy, he is pounced on. Charles and Buddy decline the interview and send the reporter away. It is only when Jamie (NICOLE EGGERT) sees the same criminal on the 6 o'clock news arrested for another robbery, that everyone breathes easier. They realize the only thing they had to fear was, of course, fear itself.moreless
