  • Trivia

    • When Richie tells Ralph he can't go on the date, Ralph responds by saying "You promised your father? What about Ralphie, your life-long buddy? Who played marbles with you? Who ate those crummy celery sticks your mom used to give you for lunch? Remember? Who taught you how to sneak into the movies? And what about the time your father..." Richie and Ralph were introduced by Potsie when they were in high school (as seen in the episode, "Our Gang"), so they couldn't have gone through all of that as kids.
