Eleven and 1/2 months after her first date with Richie Cunningham, Shirley arranges a second date. She and Laverne need a new TV set and Carmine is emceeing the Victory Dance at Jefferson High where the 1st place prizes are his-and-her TV sets. Laverne is a great dancer and Shirley is sure that if she is partnered with Potsie Webber, the best dancer at Jefferson High, the TV sets will be theirs. But jealous high school girl, Debra Lee, kicks Potsie and hurts both of his legs. Laverne slaps #8 on Richie and says "follow me, kid..." and they put on quite a show. Shirley scares Potsie into leaving early but Richie is such a sweetheart, Shirley gives him a heartfelt goodnight kiss. It is great to have friends.
