The May 1984 episode "Passages" was a particularly bittersweet one since it also marked the series finale after 11 seasons. The wedding isn't over the top, but sticks by the classic "Happy Days"
formula -- simple, heartfelt and humorous -- with a few surprises thrown in like the return of Richie (Ron Howard). Howard (Tom Bosley) breaks the fourth wall and addresses the audience, thanking viewers "for being part of our family."
