Storyline

Opie feels the first pangs of puppy love when he takes a liking to one of his classmates, Karen. He keeps asking her to do thing like walking her home or going to the movies or carrying her books but she doesn't seem to have much of an interest. He's pretty down in the dumps when Thelma Lou sees him and invites him to the house for some brownies. Soon, Opie is referring to her as his girl and he's getting to spend more time with her than Barney is. As Barney starts to chafe Karen, who Opie hasn't paid attention to for a while now, is starting to realize that she may like to spend some time with the boy after all. Written by garykmcd
