For the sake of charity, Laverne (Penny Marshall) agrees to participate in a female tag-team wrestling match. When Laverne's partner pulls up injured, Shirley (Cindy Williams) is coaxed into the ring, terrified at the prospect. And with good reason: The girls' opponents turn out to be a musclebound amazon whom they had earlier insulted during a traffic altercation. Making her first appearance as Terry Buttafucco is Judy Pioli, who as Judy Pioli Ervin also wrote several of the series' best scripts.
