Pretty weak episode
25 March 2013 | by stones78See all my reviews

This version of Happy Days(1981)isn't considered the best the series had to offer, and this is when the Fonz(Henry Winkler)took over the show, and regulars like Richie and Ralph are long gone. Regarding this episode, Fonzie takes his class(ugh)to a diner, and while he's about to order his food, he sees a waitress(Janis Paige)named Angela who he thinks resembles his mother, who also has the same name. Two Angela's in Milwaukee? No way! Perhaps the only redeeming aspect of this weak episode is the class teasing an odd neat freak named Eugene(Denis Mandel), who cleans his fork with a napkin and worries about whose mouth the fork has been in, and he even(off-camera)has rocks put down his pants. A silly and very unrealistic moment has the Fonz beating up a trucker about a foot taller and much heavier than him also. The Fonz was a hero of mine as a youngster, but after a few years, it doesn't wash anymore, and that trucker would've pasted him in real life very easily. Angela didn't turn out to be the Fonz's mother, and even though this episode was pedestrian at best, Winkler did have a few serious and effective lines that widened his usual role, but I still wouldn't recommend this episode to any Happy Days fan.
