Awesome / Happy Days

  • At the near-conclusion of the episode where Sheriff Kirk is Drunk with Power, trying run the Fonz out of town and bullying everyone else, and EVERYONE is dressed in leather jackets to stop the overbearing officer.
  • The dance contest episode is about to end with everyone content, and the contest not mattering. However, Fonzie has been roped into being Marion's dance partner, and is none too happy with the idea, that after all the grief in the episode, his efforts are just going to waste.
    Fonzie: Hey, now, wait a minute! I don't understand something here. I practice all week until I limp home and I gotta soak my feet. I spend 18 dollars and 50 cents on a monkey suit. Two nerds come to my room and lock me in my bathroom and start calling me names. Sherlock Holmes here, chases me and starts yelling at me. Cunningham, he, Cunningham over there, he starts threatening me with physical violence. Shortcake kicks me in the leg. And you wanna go home happy. Well, let me tell you something, you're not going anywhere, lady! THE FONZ WANTS TO DANCE!
  • Another dancing moment occurs in "They Shoot Fonzies, Don't They?", during a dance marathon at Arnold's. Fonzie, having already gone through hell and back just to get to Arnold's, is wiped out by the time he and another couple (consisting of the Alpha Bitch of Joanie's school and her dumb brother) are the only ones left on the floor. He's about to be carried off in the customary stretcher when said Alpha Bitch makes reference to a prior bet the two couples had made, where if Fonzie and Joanie lose, Fonzie gets a crew cut. Cue Fonzie hollering "CREW CUT?!", forcing himself off the stretcher, challenging the other couple to a special "challenge dance", and wiping the floor with them.
  • Fonzie saving Joanie from being raped. He did nothing but kick the door down walk between her and her would be rapist and stare him down. That sick freak was so scared, he jumped out a window.
  • Any moment with Fonzie coming to the rescue qualifies.
  • Special mention must go to Richie, Potsie, and Ralph for taking on a gang alone in "Joanie's Weird Boyfriend."
  • Marion Cunningham - Fonzie...SIT ON IT! Fonzie listened to THAT one LOUD and CLEAR!
  • From "King Richard's Big Night," Fonzie is about two seconds from slugging Richie in the face for damaging his bike when he realizes that Richie has no idea why Fonzie's upset and starts asking questions. They find the guy who slipped Richie something in his drink, and Fonzie cons him into immobilizing his hands by jamming through the pockets of a pool table before Fonzie lays down on the table and starts literally chalking up his knuckles with pool cue chalk and telling the guy he's going to smash his face in. The guy protests that he's helpless.
    Fonzie: [snarls] Yeah, helpless, just like my friend was last night when you slipped the garbage in his drink!
    Bullfrog: Oh, come on, all I put in his drink was-
    Fonzie: I don't wanna know what you put in his drink! You put something in your drink and that's stupid. You put something in somebody else's drink and that's pathetic. He was riding around on a motorcycle, he could have died last night! You understand that? [grabs the guy by the hair and makes him nod] YES I DO! Now that's enough talk! Just close your eyes and kiss your nose goodbye!
