Richie comes downstairs at the Cunningham house and tells everyone that he has filled out his summer job application (a bagboy at Fencik's market). Lori Beth is going to work there, as well. It is pouring rain outside, and Al comes in. Al has come for a cumberbund from Howard as he is being named the man of the year for the Sons of Italy. Al doesn't have a date yet. Richie says it's a shame Al won't have anyone with him to share the honor. Marion and Howard leave to go bowling. Richie looks in his little black book to find Al a date. Richie comes into Arnold's in his rain jacket. Ralph and Potsie come in wearing new coats and hats for their new summer jobs working on the docks as associate longshoreman (they will work weekends until school starts). Richie tries, for a second time, to talk to Al, but he is busy. Fonzie brings his bike (with a trophy) into Arnold's because of the rain. Richie asks Fonzie to fix up Al with a date. Fonzie sets up Al with Anna, a meter maid with a three-wheel motorcycle. Al and Anna hit it off and have a date for the awards ceremony that night. Chachi tells Richie that he is applying for a job at Arnold's as an assistant manager for the summer. He asks Richie to put in a good word for him with Al. Ralph and Potsie come in and say they have quit their jobs "by mutual consent." They think about being lifeguards at the pool. Al tells Richie about his evening with Anna (they made cookies after the banquet). He says they're going out again. At Al's apartment, Al gets ready for his dinner date with Anna. He plays his ukulele. He receives a call from Anna who cancels on him. She just wants to be friends. At the Cunningham house, Richie practices bagging groceries. Fonzie walks in and tells everyone about Al being dumped. Richie, Fonzie, and Howard go to Al's to talk to him. At his apartment, Al is making spaghetti sauce. He talks to Howard and tells him about Rosa Coletti. He says he hasn't dated much since she left him in 1935 and says the night he had with Anna was the best night of his life. He is having Mona Glickstein over for dinner. Back at Arnold's, Chachi is the new manager. Richie is now a price marker at the market. Ralph and Potsie are busboys at Arnold's.
