Get a Job was the 18th episode in Season 2 of Happy Days, also the 34th overall series episode. Co-written by Ben Joelson and Art Baer, the episode, which was directed by Frank Buxton, premiered on ABC-TV on March 4, 1975.
Looking for work, Richie, Potsie, and Ralph agree to fix the fence of an attractive divorcee. When the woman leaves for awhile, Potsie and Ralph decide to take off, as well, leaving Richie to finish the job by himself.
Richie and company do some repair work for a young divorcee.
Richie and Ralph show Fonzie a sheet that says "Cheap Labor". Fonzie knocks some advertisements off the bulletin board at Arnold's and posts their sign. Howard measures the couch and it is 9 feet, 2 inches long. Richie receives a call from Potsie with a job offer of cleaning some turkey cages, but they pass on it.
Richie and company receive another job offer from a young, attractive, divorced woman named Mrs. Dorothy Kimber (Leslie Charleson) to fix her fence at her house for $2.00 an hour. They have a discussion about divorced woman and Potsie asks her for a glass of water. Ralph (without his shirt) also asks for some water and she tells him he should put his shirt back on to avoid a sunburn.
Mrs. Kimber brings some sandwiches out to the boys before she leaves for the day. Ralph and Potsie leave and Richie is forced to do the job by himself. The woman invites Richie to stay for steak dinner, and he accepts. Richie dresses up in a suit and uses Howard's after-shave lotion. Richie has dinner with Dorothy (Mrs. Kimber) while Ralph and Potsie spy on them.
Richie and Dorothy kiss on a swing and talk, and wishes Richie was only 10 years older. Richie talks to the guys the next evening at Arnold's, but he doesn't tell them anything or provide any details that they are looking for.
