What is your all-time favorite episode of Happy Days and why?

Probably 150 "Burlesque" Although there are about 20 that stand out, I loved Burlesque. It's really fast-paced, a lot of one-liners & pretty girls. There's a scene that Nick deleted that I want to share here, maybe you have it: It's the one where Rich's wife is making out with Fonzie, then they hide under the bed, Rich comes home, peeks under the bed & asks the 4 others what they'd likd for dinner. They all leave, & another pretty blonde appears, & Rich says: "I thought they'd never leave."

ALthough I think there are a lot of great episodes(Passages, Welcome Home, No Tell Motel, Richie's Marriage, birth of little Richie, Richie almost dies etc..)
My two favorites are:
1) Fools Rush In, I Love at the very end where Chachi is going to just give up on Joanie and figures they will never be together and she grabs him and kisses him.
2) My favorite episode of all time is "Turn around and You're Home" My favorite part is when Joanie is inside Arnolds by herself playing the Jukebox and Chachi gives her the rose and says "I can do my music anywhere but there is only one you."
"I like to think i'm the master of my own destiny"
"Dancers are like Angels, we both know how to fly through the air."

Just about all the episodes with Richie are my favorites, but there are a few that stand out for me.
1.) "Time Capsule". I loved how at the end we see that Fonzie really was scared, "I know you know, but he don't haveta know!". And I always crack up when Richie says "I think he said 'Loosen the bell, the goat is home.'
2.) "Fonzie's Funeral" It was just a great episode in my opinion, even guest-starring the L&S cast!
3.) "Guess Who's Coming to Christmas" I liked the sensitive side of Fonzie it showed and how he really became part of the family, at least for that evening http://sitcoms.digihosting.com/ubb/smile.gif
Fonzie's #1 Chick
"Your life is a soap opera."Fonzie
"Laverne, the Mad Hatter didn't wear fishnet stockings!"Shirley
"I think he said 'Loosen the bell, the goat is home.'"Richie
"Do they call them 'Loan Bunnies?'...'Loan Guppies'...? No! Loan Shark! They're gonna bite ya face off!"Laverne
Trivia time: who is the redhead in Burlesque episode and who is she better known as today?
I thought the episodes where the cast members could show off their singing or dancing talents were pretty good. They were a nice change of pace.
I liked the Be My Valentine episode but the other 'variety' episode American Musical in season 8 I did not like as much..
Who liked/hated the variety type or flashback episodes?

here goes, #1-Fonzie's Ravioli Christmas-because I've had one of those, #2-Fonzie Goes Blind-great acting by Henry, lots of sentimental moments,#3-Joannie Runs Away From Home-I hated 15 too!, #4 Fonzie's Jump-Hey Mr.C, you look great in the glasses with the big nose!,#5-The Reunion show Ralph an Richie come home-it was great to see the gang together again. Special message to Nick At Nite:Thanks for bringing the show back I can't get enough of Happy Days, but don't think for a minute that we fans don't notice you're cutting out alot of scenes.

My favorite episodes would be from the later seasons. The episodes like Welcome Home, The Ballad of Joanie and Chachi, and Of course the wedding.
Have any of you guys called or emailed Nick-At-Nite lately? I wonder what they are thinking of doing since the last time I spoke to them they said they were thinking about it.

My favorite episode of Happy Days is "Fools Rush In."
It's my favorite because I love how Chachi tries so hard to impress Joanie and get her to take him seriously. At the end of the episode he finally gives up and tells her that "it just wasn't meant to be" and says goodnight. Then she unexpectedly kisses him. It's the best!
"Richard Cunningham knows no fear. I am a thundering steam engine. I get the feeling and I just swing with it." -Richie
"Why is everyone staring? Is there something wrong? Is there a hair out of place?" -Fonzie

My favorite episode is "Shotgun Wedding" I liked how Fonzi didn't want to mess his hair up putting on the cow costume but it was worth it.
06-05-2000, 06:18 PM

Wait,hold it I don't want anybody hurt because I did a dumd thing-Joanie
Oh,good he hit Potsie- A very scared Raplh.

My favorite episode of all time is "Welcome Home". The writing in this episode is so superb. Think about it.
1)Richie hits Fonzie which probably made every first-run tv viewer gasp with shock.
But inevitible it shows the growth of Richie as a man and with his relationship with the Fonz.
2)Take notice that a few lines here and there have Richie sticking up for Potsie.
This may not seem like much, but the writers for this episode wrote like if it were the last episode ever and in many eyes it was, but the Richie-Potsie relationship dates back of course to the initial premise of the show and there are some underlining dialogue representing that.
3)The Howdy Doody lamp. No matter the Richie from the 1st season, or Richie from the last season, Richie will always be that Howdy Doody freckle faced boy from Milwaukee. The fact that Mrs. C. accidentally smashes the lamp is a symbol that good ole red headed Richie the C's time has ended in Milwaukee and its time for him to step away and leave as a man.
4)Richie, Potsie, Ralph and Fonz singing at the piano. Like I said, the writers wrote as if this was the final episode ever and it should have made any Happy Days fan proud and melloncolly to see the fab-four around the piano singing BlueBerry Hill together....leaves a lump in my throat just thinking about it.
5)Finally the answer to the mysterious question of why Happy Days got rid of Chuck.
When Richie thanks Fonzie before he leaves for California, he talks about how Fonzie was like a brother to him. Most fans realized already why Richies brother Chuck was elliminated from the show in season 2,but the fact that it is reminded in the final scene at the door, brings a lot of signs of approval from true HD lovers.
The entire 2 parter is incredible and emotional to watch and I would have loved to seen HD end there. Chachi and Joanie getting married was a good ending, but this was more significant with the entire series, not just the last few seasons.
incidentally my favorite 'regular' episode has to be the one when Fonzie is blind. It just is.

Wow... That was DEEP! Compared to that description of an episode, Moby Dick was just a book about a guy and a whale!
My favorite episode was the one that features Fonzies little nephew/cousin/whatever relation he was, Spike. I always wondered how the whole Florist thing forked out for him...

I am sorry to say this Mr. Administrator.
This question is worse than asking "Which came first, the hen or the egg? "
How can I pinpoint ONE episode. They are ALL so GREAT..

http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/smile.gif My fav episode is definately "The Physical" bacause it is just so dang funny! http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/biggrin.gif http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/tongue.gif http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/wink.gif http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/cool.gif It is soooo funny! I also really like Chachi sells his soul! http://www.sitcomsonline.com/ubb/smile.gif I am not a big fan of the variety flash back episodes. They are okay but they could do without them. Oh yes. Anyone who would like to see the final seasons of Happy Days should all write to Nick-at-Nite. I know it's too late now but maybe for next time.

My favorite is episode #18 "Richie's Car", that Love Bandit is a great episode. I love the expression of Howie's face when he goes to adjust the seat and lays back.
08-13-2000, 12:12 PM
Since someone dug up this topic I might as well reply to it... Here are my top 10! (In order)
1. Passages (Parts 1 & 2)
2. No Tell Motel
3. Chachi Sells His Soul
4. Joanie Busts Out
5. Fonzie's Blindness
6. They Call it Potsie Love
7. Hard Cover
8. The New Arnolds (Even though I hate the actual new Arnold's restaurant, I love this episode, especially when Potsie eats the plastic jukebox)
10. Fonzie Loves Pinky (All 3 parts)
"Well, Laverne is sort of childish"
"Childish? Childish? COming from a grown woman who throws tea parties for her stuffed cat!"
"Well at least I don't sew L's on everything I wear!"
"Well that would be pretty stupid considering your name's Shirley!"
08-13-2000, 06:21 PM
I like all those eps L&S! Berlesque was really good! I agree thought the new arnolds is BUTT ugly!
See ya~The T
Richie-That sound could save your life!
Fonz-That sound could cost you yours!

My favorite episode is when Richie comes home from the Army with Loribeth and Richie JR. in tow along with Ralph. Other include "No Tell Motel" "To Tell a Tale", and "Little Richie Cunningham" and the episode when Joanie is attacked by one her students until the Fonz comes and rescues her.
I like all the episodes, but i like the ones where the Fonz holds conferences in his office. Especially where Old Arnold's burns down while Fonz, Potsie and Ralph are in there when it starts and he tries to smash through a wall and gets knocked unconscious, but Richie comes and saves them all. I love it when the next show airs the rebuilding of Arnold's and Fonzi's new office. If Bachman Turner Overdrive had been on the show,they could've played Takin Care of Business in his office.

To me, the best episode in the whole series is "Richie Almost Dies". OH, MY GOSH!!!!!!! What a POWERFUL episode! I just can't seem to keep from crying during that song that Leather sang at the Cunningham's home while Richie was in the hospital, and when Fonzie goes in to see him. Oh, wow! When he PRAYED for Richie to get better! Whew!!! I get goosebumps every time I even THINK of that episode!
I never took the time to find out the names of episodes, but my favorite Happy Days episode was the one where The Fonz goes blind. That was a very moving episodes, not many laughs, but a great episode.
