    I honestly had no idea how to rate this episode so I copped out and gave it a five.



    This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen.



    Chaci is struggling with his homework in the Cunningham kitchen. Fonz enters and offers help.



    Each essay question is answered by the Fonz and things fade to a black & white establishing shot followed by a musical number consisting of various members of the cast portraying immigrants and the issues they faced in coming to America. End muscial number, cut back to Chaci and Fonz in the kitchen. Repeat.



    The musical numbers are painful, the sight of the cast singing and dancing is hysterical for all the wrong reasons.



    I just can't imagine any current show trying to pull something like this off.



    I don't know how it's possible for something to be so awful and so fabulous at the same time, but this episode manages.
