Default 2001 CL Type S @ 70,000 miles?

The maintenance required light came on - I finally hit 70,000 miles. I
took a job and I will have to drive alot more than I used to.
What should I have done to the car at this point? Fuel filter?

The basics are in your owners manual. I seem to recall the 70K service
just being basic stuff, which they often have a package price for. Of
course, if you go to an acura dealer, they're going to find lots of
little things to try to sell you, that'll add considerably to your bill.

An oil change at the very least.

Go here:
<https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/RJAAI001_OMANUAL.asp>
Navigate to your car. Your Owner's Manual is there.

In that manual is the Maintenance Schedule that will tell you what the 70K
service involves. The Manual also explains the behavior of that mysterious
lamp on your dashboard.

Assuming that he's done the required maintenance before reaching 70K miles...

Yes, I have.
I'm paranoid about having the car strand me like I have seen happen to
all of my friends.
What about the sparkplugs? Somebody I work with say after all this time
they might need to be replaced.
I do know how to reset the maintenance required light - there's a little
mechanics shop down the street from where I live I go there and he
usually forgets to reset that magical lamp.

Then take care of it.

With proper care, no car will strand you unless there's a defect of some
kind that servicing can't correct.

Why don't you just go to that Honda site I referenced and look at the
manual? It will tell you exactly what to replace/service and when.

Here is the link again:
<https://techinfo.honda.com/rjanisis/RJAAI001_OMANUAL.asp>
In case you're wondering, that's American Honda's own Techinfo site, not
some "warez" site run by scammers.

I went to the site and downloaded the manual, but it consists of one
page which appears to be a table of contents and is only 48k.

You need the rest of the manual. The manual comes in chunks. Each chunk
is a PDF that contains only a few pages. This is done to keep the file
sizes down so you don't have to wait ages and ages to download a single
gigantic file just to have a peek at one particular thing.

Click on the ">" arrow at upper right of each successive page until the
next page takes a lot longer to load than the others did. At that point
you're into the next PDF and can do a "Save As" again. You may end up
with ten or more PDF files for the whole manual. Save them all into the
same folder on your computer and they should act as though they were one
single file.

But if you're only looking for ONE specific thing online -- such as the
Maintenance Schedule -- all you need to do is start at the Table of
Contents, and click your way to that thing. I often find it quicker to
go directly to the Index (usually at the very bottom of the Contents),
then to the letter I want ("M" for Maintenance), then to that specific
item. Once you have that specific item up, you can do a "Save As", and
you'll end up with the PDF which contains that item plus a few other
pages.
