Episode Recap

Arnold wants Fonzie to open up the bathroom door. Fonzie says he is having headaches and doesn't want people to see him out of sorts. Fonzie had been reading a "How to Fix Foreign Cars" book. Ralph thinks Fonzie might need glasses because the headaches begin when he's reading, and Ralph's father is an eye doctor. Howard tries to close a window. Fonzie stomps his foot on the floor, and it closes. Fonzie is suffering from headaches, and Joanie asks him for help with geometry (Richie is in Chicago). Marion says she'll make an appointment for Fonzie with Ralph's father. Ralph's dad likes to joke around just like his son. He puts on some funny glasses and tells more jokes. Fonzie can see fine with his left eye, but misses some letters on the eye chart with his right eye. Dr. Malph writes him a prescription for eye drops to use before his eyeglasses are ready. Dr. Malph tells him that the weakness in his right eye is causing an imbalance that is leading to his headaches. Fonzie doesn't want to wear glasses. Richie talks to Marion on the phone from Chicago. Joanie runs in and says Fonzie was in an accident on his motorcycle and and rode into Lake Michigan. Fonzie says that, while he was riding, everything went out of focus, and he couldn't see the road (he wasn't wearing his glasses). The next night is the April Fools Dance where Potsie is nominated for King Fool. Richie returns from Chicago and talks Fonzie into wearing the glasses. Fonzie comes out of his office and puts on his glasses to read the name of the winner from a card. Last year's fool is this year's fool as Potsie wins and gets a $25 savings bond, a tricycle, and a date with the queen of his choice (Debbie Patterson). Richie and Fonzie talk about Lulabell, a girl from Texas that he met in Chicago.
