Episode Recap

A waitress brings Moose an entire tray of food. Ralph has set salt shaker to spill all over the place. Potsie invites Gloria Hofstetter, Arlene's best friend, to the rock and roll show. Richie tries to get tickets, but they are all sold out. Fonzie had a pair but has already sold them to Iggy Wilson. Fonzie says he can get more for six bucks. Howard has a sore throat and eventually gives Richie the money. Dr. McKay comes to the house and checks Howard out. Howard has to have his tonsils taken out. Mr. Fenster, Howard's employee, is on vacation, and Richie reluctantly agrees to take care of the hardware store on Saturday. Richie gives the tickets back to Fonzie for a refund. Richie then buys the tickets back after learning he only has to stay at the store until 5:00 PM, and Fonzie gives Richie $1 for popcorn. Richie and Potsie get stuck in the store when Richie leaves the keys in the outside lock of the front door, and Potsie allows the door to close. Richie accidentally breaks the glass door with his foot trying to get out through a small window at the top of the door. Richie stays at the store and listens to the radio while waiting for a glass repairman.
