A recent act of vandalism at the high school prompts local officials to impose a 9pm curfew for Milwaukee teens. Richie, Potsie & Ralph (and others) decide to protest by getting purposely arrested. While discussing this in the restroom of Arnold's drive in, Arnold locks up without checking. Officer Kirk sometime later enters and thinking they broke in,promptly arrests them. Richie's dad Howard is called but after being unable to reason with Kirk,Howard is jailed along with the boys. Worst of all,they have to put up with Potsie's depressing singing and a drunken man.
