Richie bottles up his emotions as he continues to hold his day job as a reporter at the Milwaukee Journal. Eventually, his emotions boil over at the dinner table, and he storms out of the house. Fonzie decides to go after his friend and try to calm him down, and eventually tracks him down to a tavern. This time, Richie - who plans to get drunk - refuses to buy into the "talk to Fonzie and it will be all better" routine, and slugs the Fonz. Fonzie keeps his cool, however and tells him he needs to air his concerns appropriately with his mother. After a good night's sleep, Richie shares his feelings with Marion and convinces her that he's ready to make whatever sacrifices he needs to for his dream to come true. Marion still has her reservations about the idea of Richie pursuing what appears to be a difficult dream, but accepts the fact that Richie's future is in screen writing. Howard accepts too, and after a couple of weeks, everyone shares an emotional farewell. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli: No you don't.
Richie Cunningham: Let's get something straight right now, all right? The days when The Fonz can come riding in and solve all my problems with a few choice words are long gone! So why don't you leave-a-mundo?
Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli: You're absolutely right. This is not a frosh mixer. I can't fix you up with a date, but you are my friend, we can talk about it and I haven't said 'a-mundo' ...
