Cindy Shea (Cheryl Ladd) is a famous name in the movies and every boy's dream. Richie is over the moon when he wins a date with her to go to the school dance but is slightly disappointed when he learns that she won't be able to join him until the dance has actually started.
Meanwhile, Gloria, (Linda Purl) Richie's current girlfriend is very jealous when she hears the news but nothing can rain on Richie's parade as he excitedly waits for Cindy to arrive. When she does, the flashbulbs pop and Richie is in seventh heaven but when escorting Cindy back to her hotel room, he comes back to earth with a thud when he finds that she is actually married.
A very good episode and great to see Cheryl Ladd, later well known for her role in "Charlie's Angels".
