Fourteen-year-young Joanie Cunningham falls hard for seventeen-year-old Potsie Weber when he looks deep into her eyes while rehearsing a romantic song with his band.


After Potsie practices a song at Arnold's, serenading Joanie with "Put Your Head on My Shoulder," Joanie develops a crush on Potsie and starts writing him anonymous "secret admirer" love notes, under the advice of Fonzie. Finally, Joanie arranges a meeting with Potsie at Arnold's at midnight, although Potsie sets his standards too high about who his mystery lover is.
