Episode Recap

Richie drives Fonzie to Arnold's where Potsie and Ralph tell him that Richie's old girlfriend, Arlene Nestrock, has returned from New York after three years. Flashback scenes are shown where Richie gets Arlene to go out with him by telling her he has a television. Richie asks her out, and she accepts. Howard searches for Joanie's "Terry and the Pirates" glow-in-the-dark ring in the bathroom sink drain. There is another flashback where Richie takes Arlene home. She tells him that she only went out with him because she wanted to see television. Arlene, now, wants to go steady and "tricks" Richie into asking her. She takes his ring, and Richie is stunned at what just happened. Fonzie, Potsie, Ralph, and Richie talk about Arlene and Richie going steady. Richie explains that he hates going steady. Fonzie gets the idea to have Richie dress up and act like him when he goes to have dinner with Arlene's parents in order to steer Arlene's interest away from him. Arlene is even more impressed with Richie following this incident. Richie takes her to the movies, tells her he doesn't want to go steady, and, later, tries to console her in the women's restroom. Howard and Marion play Scrabble and talk to Richie about the breakup. The guys talk about it at Arnold's.
