* CommutingOnABus: Look for Potsie throughout Season 8 episodes in a stream of completely random jobs, including: the announcer at a basketball game, the MC of an awards ceremony, singing at a beauty pageant, etc. before Howard hired him as assistant manager of the hardware store and pledge for the Leopard Lodge. In fact, anytime he appeared after that, it was always with Howard (much to the latter's frustration).
