  • Richie wants to be a hard-hitting investigative reporter for the school paper but investigating the food in the cafeteria hardly seems like an award winning assignment.

    I found this episode so dull that I almost didn't watch all the way to the end. I love the characters from "Happy Days" but sometimes they gave the actors very little to work with in regard to scripts and in my opinion, this was one of those times.

    Richie investigates the quality of the food in the cafeteria at Jefferson High and is appalled by some of the unhealthy and unhygenic practices which go on there. He wants to expose it to all and sundry but Howard tells him that there are times when responsible journalists keep their mouths closed rather than report everything they find. Meanwhile, he DOES find out that Fonzie has an almost pathalogical fear of liver, he can't even bear to look at it, let alone eat it.
