Ralph shows up in his yellow dragster which Fonzie fixed up. Skizzy Scarlik challenges Ralph to a drag race at 7:00 PM at the Airport Road. Fonzie tells Skizzy that he will drive Ralph's car in the race. Potsie stays over at the Cunninghams while his parents are in Atlantic City. The drag race is changed to midnight when Fonzie has a rush job to do at the garage. The Cunninghams and Potsie watch some of The Untouchables on television. Richie and Potsie sneak out the window of Richie's room to go to the drag race. Fair and impartial Richie is selected to start the race by dropping a white flag. Richie is stopped by Howard, and the cops show up causing everyone to run off. Everyone is brought into the police station for questioning. Howard grounds Richie for life and then changes it to two weeks. Everyone leaves Arnold's at 5:30 because they are grounded except for two kids (Moose and a girl) who dance together.
