Episode Recap

Ralph announces at Arnold's that he has an important announcement. Fonzie announces that he is getting married on Sunday. Richie, Potsie, and Ralph go in the restroom to talk to Fonzie who says her name is Maureen (last name Johnson). Fonzie tells them his five qualifications for a good wife and wants Richie to be his best man (Rocky Baruffi is his first choice, but he is still in prison). Potsie comes back into the restroom after he's had twelve malts. Fonzie has him keep his hands over his ears. Fonzie wants to take Maureen over to the house to meet Richie's parents. They sit down to have dinner, and Howard says that she looks familiar to him. Howard soon remembers that he saw Maureen entertain as "The Lone Stripper" the previous year in Chicago at the annual hardware convention. He remembers that she has a distinctive laugh like a seal. To test his theory, Howard tells a joke about soup, and she laughs like a seal. Howard tells Richie that there are two kinds of girls - those that do and those that don't - and that Maureen is probably a "do." Fonzie gets five wrenches and a chrome exhaust pipe at his bachelor party at the Cunningham house. Ralph shows what turn out to be home movies from Yellowstone Park instead of stag movies that were supposed to be sent by his cousin. Richie breaks the news to Fonzie about Maureen, and they go down to the club to see if it is her. Fonzie finds out the only thing that Maureen has on his list is "no mustache." Fonzie and Maureen talk, and they say goodbye to each other.
