Hey Harold! is an episode in the Hey Arnold! TV Series.
Harold, who usually hates girls, goes to Rhonda's party even though he thinks he'll look stupid. He meets Patty and at first they argue about which gender is dumber, but then they realize they have a lot in common. The next day they go out on their first date and agreed to sit next to each other at lunch. However, Stinky and Sid tease Harold for developing a crush on Patty, so he doesn't sit next to her at lunch to prove he doesn't like her.
Then at lunch, Sid and Stinky make fun of Patty by calling her clumsy at dancing. Harold snaps at them and tells them to mind their own business.
Then he sits next to Patty and they eat lunch with smiles on their faces.
- The title is a self-parody of the show's name Hey Arnold!.
- Harold previously had his appendix removed.
- Patty has sat by herself at lunch since the 2nd grade.
- The plot of this episode is loosely based on the 1955 film Marty. Coincidentally, Mr. Green is based on Ernest Borgnine's character from that movie.
- Lila and Ruth can be seen talking together, both of whom being direct love interests of Arnold. Gerald and Phoebe are also seen talking together, as their voices are briefly heard.
Brainy's nose is inconsistent to previous designs.
