Today's episode of Happy Days
: Fonzie falls in love with a deaf girl and learns to sing "Happy Birthday" in sign language. Richie warns him not to lead her on. When Fonzie goes to tell her, in sign language, that she's the one, her off-again and on-again boyfriend shows up to tell Fonzie (he's not deaf) that they're getting married. The boyfriend is Richard Masur, who played Ann Romano's boyfriend in the first season of "One Day at a Time."
A little research
reveals that, in addition to his acting roles, Masur is not only a director and president of the Screen Actors' Guild but is also active in the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
Just a bit of levity after a week of dealing with the school board and county commissioners.
