I doubt if it was fear because Fonzie wrestled him down when Richie tried to do it again.

BTW, Richie became a good fighter because of training in the Army. I wonder if we were supposed to believe that Ralph Malph did too.

I thought Fonzie was going to tear Richie apart when Richie punched him in the face

Richie is his friend, he haden't seen him in a long time, you think he's gonna give him a black eye as a souvenir from his vacation?

I actually was startin to think it woulda done Richie some good - he was acting like he just came back from 'Naam, not a vacation-post in sunny greenland, giving sponge-baths to polar bears

Talking Isn't it funny

Isn't it funny how Richie was always afraid of getting hit by the Fonz early in the series even after they were friends. (Like when Richie thought he caught mono from Fonzie's girlfriend, etc), but then late in the series, Richie punched Fonzie in the face and Fonzie wouldn't hit him.

Richie had a right to be angry, but it was misdirected at Fonzie. Richie's parents were trying to run his life and he didn't know how to stand up to them.

maybe it was a difference in how that generation dealt with things, but I thought Richie was just acting goofy - just do what you want to do, and let them figure it out for themselves...

umm, why couldn't Richie write his scripts from anywhere and still work for the paper? I just didn't see what the big deal was... certainly did'nt see why he was directing it at the Fonz...

I think it was a rebellion delayed from the teen-age years. Richie had good parents and a great family, but he was tired of always being the perfect son for them. He was a man and they were still treating him like a boy with everything from his career to his mustache. Why couldn't Richie write scripts and still work for the paper? Because he was a man with his own family and his own plan. It was his last conversation with Ralph Malph that seemed to drive him over the edge. Ralph was clearly being lead by his father and Richie saw himself in him. Ralph told Richie the truth and it hurt. I could understand exactly what Richie was feeling.

As for his anger at Fonzie, no it wasn't fair, but many people misdirect their anger. That just made Richie human. I liked this two part episode and it may have been the best of those horrid final seasons.

OK i just watched EP #145 "Fonzie meets the Kat" again, and the Fonz doesn't hit ANYBODY - he dodges a couple of thugs, and sidesteps punches, and when Rico takes a swing at him, the Fonz grabs his arm then throws him over the bar... when Rico sticks his head up again the Fonz blows on him and it knocks Rico out....

AGAIN no punches thrown by the Fonz!!!

Throwing the guy over the bar sounds more violent than throwing a punch
