  • Potsie is staying with the Cunninghams while his parents are out of town and Ralph is challenged to an illegal drag race.

    9.0
    Howard isn't too thrilled that Potsie is going to be staying with the Cunninghams while his parents are away but that will be the least of his problems as the episode progresses.



    Ralph is challenged to a drag race and is terrified so Fonzie, the King of this kind of thing offers to ride for Ralph instead. Hearing about what is going to happen, Potsie persuades a reluctant Richie to sneak out so that they can watch the event. Unfortunately for everyone involved, Joannie (Erin Moran) finds out and tells her father who promptly goes to stop the event taking place - right about the time the police turn up and threaten to put everyone in jail! Watch and see what happens next! Yet another excellent episode.moreless

    In this episode of Happy Days Ralph is challenged to drag race another teen, Fonzie steps in to ride for Ralph.

    Potsie, who is staying over at Richie's house while his parents are out of town, convinces Richie to sneak out with him and watch the drag race. Jonie over hears the boys' plans and when the boys turn up missing, Jonie tells Mr. and Mrs. C where the boys' went. Mr. C goes to get the boys, right when he gets there Richie is about to drop the flag to start the race. Mr. C runs out to stop Richie, and grabs the flag. The police show up and take all the teens into custody, they even bring in Mr.C.

    Mr.C. grounds Richie for life, and then later reduces the sentence to two weeks. Great episode.moreless

    • Sergeant: Aw, Fonzie. I'm ashamed of you. I never expected to see you in here for draggin' - especially against Skizzy. Now, don't tell me you lost your cool.
      Fonzie: Hey, he insulted a friend. I just thought it was my duty to drive, you know?
      Sergeant: Well, I guess chivalry ain't what it used to be.

    • Sergeant: (speaking to kids rounded up at an illegal drag race and Howard, who tried to stop it) Ah, it's the children's hour. Now, this isn't a nice way to spend the evening, is it? We could all be home, in our nice little beds, but you had to go out and have a nasty, old drag race. Now, in case you haven't heard lately, drag racing is a no-no in this state. (speaking directly to Howard) Ah. You don't make me very happy, kids. (taps Howard on shoulder) You're a little old for this kinda thing, aren't you, sonny?
