#251- Fonzie's Spots (9/24/84)

Howard needs to recruit some members to the Leopard Lodge.

Mr. and Mrs. C have just come from a Leopard Lodge members funeral and Mr. C is discussing with a member named Donald about why Mr. C hasn't got anybody else to join except Potsie. Mrs. C comes to the living room with coffee. Donald leaves. Mr. C tells Mrs. C that if he doesn't get any new members he can't be a Grand Poobah any more. Fonzie comes from the kitchen door with Joanie who's hair is mildly messed up because Fonzie gave her a lift on his motorcycle. Mrs. C tells Fonzie and Joanie about Mr. C's situation. Chachi and Roger come in. Fonzie suggests Roger that he should become a Leopard. Mr. C comes downstairs and Roger tells him that the Leopard Lodge needs new members (meaning himself) and Mr. C misinterprets him and says that it would be great if Fonzie would join. Fonzie can't say no to Mr. C. Joanie, Mr. and Mrs. C go upstairs. Fonzie says to Roger and Chachi that if he is joining so will they. Mr. C starts a meeting at the Leopard Lodge, he introduces the new Leopard cubs and Fonzie, Chachi and Roger come inside holding each others tails. Mr. C says that they must obey whatever the pledge master tells them to do and that their pledge master is Potsie. Chachi and Roger are being humiliated with soda in the face and pie on the face tricks. Potsie tries that on Fonzie but Fonzie asks him what will happen to him if he gets Fonzie's jacket wet and Potsie backs down. One of the members asks to take a picture of the cubs and the camera sprays water on the boys and Chachi and Roger have to hold Fonzie down so he couldn't hit the man. Fonzie comes from Arnold's kitchen wearing a chef's hat and goes to the table where Chachi and Roger are sitting. Chachi and Roger ask where his Leopard cub hat is and Fonzie says that it's under his chef's hat. The guys discuss what they've had to do that past week. Potsie comes to Arnold's and gives Fonzie an assignment. A little bit later Fonzie comes out of his office wearing a bunny suit. Mr. C comes to Arnold's and tells Fonzie what it means to him that Fonzie wants to be a member. Fonzie bounces out of Arnold's. They're all at the Leopard Lodge and Fonzie is doing a show for the kids at Pfister Orphanage. The kids leave and the voting begins. Mr. C explains to them that if there is even one black ball in the cup then they can't join. First Mr. C shows the results for Roger's membership and there aren't any black balls, then he shows Chachi's results and he also has no black balls (he's not too happy about that). When it comes to Fonzie's turn he first does a speech and then Mr. C shows the results for Fonzie's membership. There is one black ball. Fonzie is upset and Potsie asks Donald who could the black baller be and after that everybody starts to chase Donald and they leave the Leopard Lodge only Fonzie and Mr. C stay there. Mr. C says that he put the black ball in to the cup because Fonzie was already doing all the good things that the Lodge was doing and that Fonzie didn't really enjoy of all the rest. Fonzie and Mr. C leave the Lodge. Later that day, Chachi comes out of Arnold's kitchen and is carrying two cream pies, he tells Joanie that he is going to throw them at Potsie's face. Roger comes inside and takes the other cream pie. They think that Potsie is the next person to come through Arnold's doors and they're ready to throw the pies when they see that the person entering is Fonzie and they decide to throw the pies into each others faces. Fonzie says "good choice".
