When Richie breaks up with his long time girlfriend, he finds it difficult to ask a girl out. So he asks Fonzie for help. He decides to take Richie to the supermarket where he says he can meet and pick up girls. But it doesn't turn out so well, so Fonzie decides to try another approach--he will call two women in his black book and they will have a double date. And the women he chooses are Laverne DeFazio and Shirley Feeney. They're not exactly wholesome. But eventually they go back to Richie's where he's all alone because the family went to visit a relative. When Fonzie takes Laverne to his place he leaves Richie with Shirley and things heat up when his family comes back. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com
