Episode Recap

Richie does a short recap of previous events as Pinky is taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Fonzie is left to fend for himself against the Mallachi brothers who look to set him up for the Mallachi Crunch. Fonzie is able to finish off Rocco by forcing him to crash into another car already out of the derby. Fonzie intentionally stalls his car to fool the Count. He, then, rams the Count's car three times to win the derby. He chases the Count, who is now out of his car, into the men's bathroom ("Fonzie's Bathroom Blitz" according to Richie). Richie tells Fonzie that Pinky is at Pfister Hospital, and he takes off on his motorcycle. At the hospital, Fonzie tells Richie that he loves Pinky. He wants to marry her unless Richie can talk him out of it. Richie tries, but it doesn't work. Richie thinks they're perfect for each other. He tells Richie that he wants to buy her a house with a white picket fence and a dog named Spunky. Pinky comes out in a wheelchair with a pink bandage on her head. The Mallachi brothers have paid Pinky's bill and pay a visit to the hospital before they leave for a derby (driving Edsels) in Detroit. Fonzie tells Pinky they should do it (meaning getting married), and the nun who wheeled Pinky in says "over my dead body." Pinky accepts Fonzie's proposal. At the house, Fonzie explains that he is set to manage Pinky's career on the road. Howard, Marion, and Joanie leave to pick up Howard's plaque at the lodge. Richie talks to Fonzie about going on the road. The Pinkettes arrive at the Cunninghams and tell Fonzie that there has been a change in plans. Pinky will be on The Ed Sullivan Show in New York. They say he and Pinky will be married on the infield of the Daytona 500. They give him a pink check from Pinky, Inc. At Arnold's, Potsie and Ralph invite Fonzie over to Ralph's garage so they can look at nude pygmies in National Geographic. Fonzie has Richie escort them out. Pinky comes in, and Fonzie tells her that he can't be Mr. Pinky Tuscadero. He says he's not going to go with her and convinces her to go without him. Alfred lets everyone in for a congratulations party, and Fonzie tells Richie it is over between him and Pinky. Fonzie leaves with the guys to look at Ralph's National Geographic magazines.
