Episode Recap

Howard comes downstairs wearing a light-blue tuxedo. The boys come in. They can't find a bar mitzvah party where they are supposed to play. The address is locked in Ralph's car in his glove compartment at Fonzie's garage. Ralph remembers that the address has a girl's name in it, so they start flipping through the phone book. Marion has some confidential information about where Fonzie has been every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and that he will be home at 9:30 p.m. The guys finally get the information from Marion who says that Fonzie has been going to night school at Jefferson High. Fonzie recites some poetry during the class, and his girlfriend, Michelle, is impressed. The guys arrive and stand in the doorway while Fonzie continues reading. The teacher is impressed, as well, and needs a break to cool off. Richie says they had to find him because of the emergency situation. Ralph thinks of the name: Beth Israel. Joanie has heard the news about Fonzie from Jenny Piccalo, and Marion becomes worried that Fonzie will be angry with her for telling. Al sings "I Love a Parade" at the senior prom. Richie and his date, Arlene, arrive. Ralph brings Kim to the prom who's wearing a giant corsage. Al announces a special guest, Fonzie, who brings his French girlfriend, Michelle. He ignores Marion (who is a chaperone with Howard) because she told about him attending night school. Fonzie makes the announcement that he is joining everyone as a graduating senior. Kim is stung by a bee that was in her corsage. Howard talks to Fonzie about the good things Marion does for him. He dances with Michelle while Fonzie and Marion make up. They dance. Vice-Principal Conners makes an announcement that everyone has failed a health exam. Nobody can graduate unless they pass a make-up exam scheduled for 8:30 the next morning. Everyone leaves to study. Al sings "Goodnight Sweetheart" as the last dance of the prom. Only Fonzie and Michelle are there as everyone else has left.
