  • Richie takes part on a television game show with big prize money, but has his conscience tested when he is given the answers, in this episode based upon a real life case...

    This story is based upon a real life incident on such a game show in the 1950s, where contestants were given the answers to the questions.

    Of course, with Richie being so squeaky clean, we all know he'll do the right thing in the end, but it's still good to see how he get's there.

    Also to note with this episode is that Fonzie is seen to have his own garage repair shop for the first time (previously, he had been working in a larger garage with other mechanics). The men's room at Arnold's is gradually being defined as his 'office', too.

    All-in-all, this is a nice story, and probably one of the series' most recognised episodes.
  • Richie has a chance of a lifetime when he becomes a contestant on a tv quiz show.

    Richie is thrilled when he is chosen to be a contestant on a popular tv quiz show and he and his family and friends are hoping that he will perform well.

    In the time that he has on the air, Richie is able to win a staggering three thousand, two hundred dollars before the show ends for that week and he is determined to come back next time and aim to answer the big question - worth a mighty five thousand dollars!

    After the show, Richie is stunned when the host of the show hands him an envelope with the answer to the big question inside, explaining that viewers WANT him to win because he is such a likeable kid. What will Richie do? Will he open the envelope and guarantee himself the five thousand dollar prize or will he do the right thing and refuse to cheat?
