Happy Days: Potsie Quits School

Facing an "F" on his anatomy final, and believing his teacher hates his guts, Potsie threatens to quit school. Fonzie gives him some advice for the test: use music as a tool. Meanwhile, Fonzie needs some new boots, and Joanie and Howard are at odds at a less-than-spectacular report card.

Episode Notes
Potsie's "Pump Your Blood" number, actually written by Anson Williams, was used for a series of St. Joseph aspirin TV advertisements from mid-2004 to early 2005. In late 2005, the "professor" in those commercials sang the song instead of Williams.

Episode Goofs
On the blackboard, a drawing of the heart has all of its parts labeled, including the ventricle, but the word "ventricle" is misspelled "ventrical." During Potsie's "Pump Your Blood" number, the mistake has been erased.
