  • Richie is sick of being targeted by local hoodlums so he decides the time has come to stand up for himself.

    Two local thugs named Frankie and Rocco get their kicks by picking on those who can't defend themselves, and one of their favorite targets is Richie who, as we know is a pretty passive kind of guy.

    Richie continues to take the constant harassment until he decides that enough is enough and that he doesn't wish to be a victim anymore. Planning to finally stand up to the two boys, he enrols himself in jujitsu lessons so that they will no longer find him such an easy target.

    This episode highlights the ever-present bullies in our society and the important lessons to be learned when you decide to stand up for yourself.
