In 1973, in a Brady Bunch episode called “A Room at the Top”, Both Greg and Marcia want to use the attic for a private room, Greg puts in his bid for the space with his father; Marcia asks her mother for the attic. Then both try to move up there at the same time.
In 1982, because America canʹt get enough of Erin Moran and Scott Baio (and they canʹt get enough of one another), ABC moves “Joanie Loves Chachi” into its own timeslot and 90 miles south-by-southeast to Chicago, where the coupleʹs band manages to play a few numbers each episode in (his new stepfather) Alʹs restaurant. And while audiences love the show Tuesday nights right after “Happy Days,” they arenʹt able to find the show when it moves a month later to Thursday nights, and its ratings plummet. In May 1983, Americaʹs sweethearts move back behind Fonzie, but by September ABC cancels their gig.

As “Revenge” for showing her undergarments at school, she hopes to have him put in a straitjacket (I guess the same one Napoleon XIV wore when two men in white coats took him away to the funny farm) and lifted up into the heavens by helium balloons.
In 1993, Bruce Springsteen surprises the audience at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank, New Jersey, when he rips off his shirt and launches into Billy Ray Cyrusʹ “Achy Breaky Heart.” “Everybody gets a giggle out of it,” he says, “but that tune is just damn good”
