Richie and Ralph show Fonzie a sheet that says "Cheap Labor." Fonzie knocks some advertisements off the bulletin board at Arnold's and posts their sign. Howard measures the couch and it is 9 feet, 2 inches long. Richie receives a call from Potsie with a job offer consisting of cleaning some turkey cages, but they pass on it. Richie and company receive another job offer from a young, attractive, divorced woman named Mrs. Kimber to fix her fence at her house for $2.00 an hour. They accept. They have a discussion about Mrs. Kimber and divorced women, in general. Potsie asks Mrs. Kimber for a glass of water. Ralph (without his shirt) also asks for some water, and she tells him he should put his shirt back on to avoid a sunburn. Mrs. Kimber brings some sandwiches out to the boys before she leaves for the day. Ralph and Potsie leave, and Richie is forced to do the job by himself. The woman invites Richie to stay for steak dinner, and he accepts. Richie dresses up in a suit and uses Howard's after-shave lotion. Richie has dinner with Dorothy (Mrs. Kimber) while Ralph and Potsie spy on them. Richie blackmails them into leaving. Richie and Dorothy kiss on a swing and talk, and Dorothy wishes Richie was ten years older. Richie talks to the guys the next evening at Arnold's, but he doesn't tell them anything or provide any details that they are looking for.
