Do you ever imagine yourself in an episode of HD? I do in this one! As Fonzie I might have said to Bertha: "I know about what Chachi did to your kid sister,Rhonda. Disgraceful! I'm gonna personally talk to him & if he doesn't straighten up I'll personally shave his head! Woa!" Chachi dumped Ronda which is why the she-devils got him.

Don't at least 2 of the girls look familiar? One of them played Potsie's girlfriend in a camping trip organized by Rich. Another was also in the commercial by Howard that featured Hank Aaron.

yeah, i think the three that grabbed the guys in Arnold's were all recurring actors, although I don't remember who played what character in which episode...

and Big Bertha was a contributing writer for a number of episodes too

#166 - The Roaring Twenties

This was the one where Howard's Uncle Joe comes to visit and tells Richie the story about great-uncle Cecil Cunningham who was a district attourney during the prohibition period in the 1920's.

I liked this one, the only singing parts fit (Joanie and LoriBeth as flappers singing some cornball thing about "Pat my back big daddy") with the story and the characters the gang played were great. Al as The Bear - "give him a hug", Fonzie as "Spats", Ralph as "Purvis the jumpy assistant DA", Potsie as ...what was he again?, Mr C as the owner of the speak-easy., Mrs C as his puritannical drum-beating wife, and Joanie as their daughter....

It really looked like they had a lot of fun doing this episode, it had some funny parts, i should gets some quotes, if i have time.

I always have liked this one, but the show ends with Uncle Joe giving Rich a cookie. But I know there's a scene that comes later that I haven't seen since the show was on. It's where a piece of pie is missing & Joe asks Howard how it was, & he says it was delicious. Also, Joe explains that his family moved west with no husband, & Joannie asks how that was possible. the show really ends where Uncle Joe reveals he is teaching a new dance-the tango. Don't you just hate it when the network deletes parts of show to fit commercials in? I wish someday there could be a HD special that could contain some deleted scenes.

I think Potsie was "pretty boy" & Rich played the DA who closed a speakeasy owned by someone who looked a lot like Howard.

p.s. does someone have the deleted scene by chance? Maybe there's a way to download it so the rest of us can watch it.

Pretty good episode. Then they throw in a twist, Spats being a undercover agent for the F.B.I. I bet they did have fun with this episode, by getting to play different characters.

i agree - i love the ones where they play different characters - as long as they don't turn it into one of those "musical" episodes, that whole thing was a bad idea. The problem was that musicals were sorta popular around that time (Grease, I don't even want to think about any after that one) so I assume that the producers felt that they HAD to do a few musical episodes, even if most of the HD cast weren't really very musiical/singing/dancing inclined...

and sad to say wayne, but I know that I don't have any special deleted scenes, and we probablay wont ever see them unless HD comes out on DVD...

#159 - Hot Stuff & #160 - The New Arnold's

This 2-parter is a pretty important milestone in the series, it marks a change in the look and feel of the show. When I see the episodes with the new Arnold's I think of KC, Jenny Piccalo, Joanie with the poodle-doo, Chachi's bandana, Roger and (blech) Flip. The episodes were pretty good, but the jokes got dragged down by the seriousness of the plot at times.

My fav part was Fonzie and Al destroying the cake arguing over where everything should go and Fonzie's exit: "I'm not leaving without my table!!!" *grabs handful of cake and storms out*

Important point that I noticed - the whole argument about whether to rename the place "Fonzie's" or "Big Al's" was instigated by Potsie!!! - hmmmmmm....

Chachi was irresponisible throwing his apron like that. Boy was Fonzie ticked. I do like what they did to the girls bathroom, really nice. In the guys bathroom, did they keep the 'air dryer'? I don't remember seeing it too much. Fonzie's 'office' was cool. It was sweet of Al. And the spatula was a sweet gift from Fonzie to Al. Times were changing, a 60's look for Arnold's. New characters, some forgettable and new looks.

Here's a bit of fanfic for ya... What would become of Arnolds? would it still exist today? Maybe it still could be a restaurant. Perhaps a business office. Maybe a residence? What do you think? I can only imagine how different it might look. What was Arnolds address again? Someplace on Lake Drive according to "Ritchie Branches out."

Well in my world Arnold's would still be Arnold's. I would have made it into a diner. Here where I live diner's are very popular. We have alot. 50's and 60's music would still be playing on a jukebox.

#157 - Ah Wilderness

the one where the guys go on a camping vacation and Ritchie wants to be the leader....

I liked this one a lot.... lots of jokes, change of scenery, new characters - I just noticed that Ralph's date, the retainer-bound, lisping Susie Simmons was played by Julie Brown, who starred in a bunch of hilarious movies, including Earth Girls Are Easy !! - of course, Ralph ran over her when he saw the bear...

Potsie had some good ones in there too, forgetting the matches and the can opener -
Fonzie: "You know that we're gonna open them with your forehead?" (the cans)

Why does Ritchie get so power-mad when he gets his hands on a whistle? I can understand him feeling competitive with the Fonz, but the decisions he made were really sort of bad, and the whistle was destined to be his downfall

your thoughts?

that almost sounds like a "Sanford Arms" or 704 Hauser Street, the spinoff that was based on the house that the Bunkers lived in on "All In The Family" ....

I'd hate to see Arnold's as anything but a restaurant... and the best idea that I'd like to see with it would be a retro-style 50's diner - what could be more fitting?

I'd watch that (that doesn't say a lot though does it )

Here's an observation about "Ah Wilderness": Rich enters the house obviously in pain from the limp caused by Fonzie throwing a rock at him. How can Rich be much of a help unloading any truck with a bad leg? It seems a bit inhumane of the Fonz to insist on Rich's help. Sure Rich wasn't used to being a leader & didn't know anything about tents & should have brought food along. But Fonz did apologize, in a way, for not being good followers & saying Rich might have a been a better leader.

Another one of my favorite episodes. It cracked my up every time Richie wanted to 'rally' everyone up by blowing the whistle. Very funny. Potsie and his girlfriend, I could have smacked everytime the 'ahhh' each other when they thought one of them was bringing the matches or can opener. I did feel sorry for Richie, he wanted to be the leader instead of Fonzie. He did get carried away, but he ended up doing a pretty good job. I thought too that it was a bit mean of Fonzie to insist the Richie help out with the unloading. Gee the poor guy gets his foot bruised and he had to walk 12 miles around trip getting supplies. Give him a break.
