Episode Recap

Ralph tries to pull a prank on Marsha by putting his finger with ketchup on it in a little box to make it look like a severed finger. A local gang, the Dukes, comes into Arnold's, and Frankie Molina is looking for a red-headed kid who was on their turf. He comes to thank Richie for walking home his little sister who was being picked on by some other kids. Howard, Marion, and Richie clean out some garbage cans in the driveway. Potsie comes over and says the Dukes stole his bike. Richie goes over to the Pool Hall to see Frankie and meets Squirt. Richie identifies Potsie's blue bike (now painted red) with a squirrel's tail and a nameplate on the back. The guys plan to go to the Hall with the football team to get back the bike, but Jefferson High's mascot (a duck) shows up without the team. Frankie returns from his job as an usher at the Bijou Theatre. Potsie leaves a threatening note, and they get ready to fight before Fonzie shows up with his pals to play some pool. The Dukes leave peacefully, and Potsie pays Fonzie and his pals $4 for some games of pool and drinks for the boys. Howard buys an $8.50 color converter for the television, and the family tries to watch TV with it.
