Episode Recap

There is a Delta Gamma kissing booth for charity at Arnold's where Lori Beth is one of the kissers. Al informs Richie that Lori Beth has been in the booth all night. Richie becomes jealous, and Lori Beth takes a break. Jennifer Jerome is next in the kissing booth. Richie and Lori Beth have an argument, and they leave. Fonzie comes in followed by Ralph and Potsie. Potsie is instantly attracted to Jennifer, the "Georgia Peach." Potsie is afraid Jennifer would never go out with him. He doesn't have any money, and Jennifer tells him he can owe her for the kiss. Jennifer asks him if he wants to do something afterwards. All Potsie can do is nod. Al asks Fonzie to be next in the kissing booth. Richie argues with Lori Beth over at the phone back at the house before she pulls the cord out of the wall. Marion helps Joanie with her Spanish vocabulary. Ralph tells everyone that Potsie is going to propose to Jennifer after only one date. Marion suggests that Howard talk to Potsie about it since his own father won't. Howard is watching a Braves game on television and talks to Potsie. Howard tells him he shouldn't rush into anything - relationships can take time. Howard says he should find out what Jennifer likes and suggests they get pinned instead of getting married. After going to a carnival (where Jennifer wins Potsie a teddy bear), Potsie and Jennifer talk at the Delta Gamma House. Jennifer says she would love to get pinned, and they kiss. The girls go into the house to meet the 10:30 curfew. Potsie says to Richie and Ralph that he isn't going to get pinned. At Arnold's, Potsie tells Fonzie that his fraternity brothers would throw him in the lake as part of the ceremony and that he can't swim. Fonzie says he'll take care of it and has Potsie wear a life preserver under his shirt. At the Delta Gamma house, they pinning ceremony takes place where the girls, guys, and Potsie and Jennifer sing. Potsie's life preserver opens when they kiss. The guys carry Potsie off to the lake. Richie and Lori Beth make up.
