  • When Fonzie sees a "B+" Potsie made, Richie convinces him that he could be the world's only high school "drop in."

    As the episode starts out, Fonzie sees that Potsie has made a B+ in school, prompting the Fonz to pick up the test and see what's inside. He realizes that he knows almost everything on the test, which prompts Richie to convince him to re-enroll. Fonzie's first day is great, arranging the seating plan to his satisfaction, earning the respect of his teacher and meeting several new girls. It's then that things start to go downhill. He asks Richie to do his homework for him, which Richie does silently for two weeks. Richie finally decides he can't cheat anymore, which leads Fonzie to respect him all the more. The ending is emotional, almost to a poignant note, which is highly unusual of a show this funny. Definitely one of the funniest and most original Happy Days episodes of all time.
