Brady Commentary: So ends another dream vacation for the Bradys. None of the kids fought with each other, in fact they enjoyed hanging out together.

Brady Commentary: Even though the moral is a bit of a stretch and it's the same as episode #75 this remains one of the funniest of all the Brady shows. The excellent performances by both Greg and Marcia (with the help of that wig and glasses) make this one of the most underrated episodes.


77)Fright Night-The boys scare the girls with a ghost outside their window. The girls scare the boys with a ghost in the attic. Then all the kids plot to scare Alice who ends up hitting Carol's bust in fright.

Best Line: "O.K. ghosts, come and get us." -Peter
Moral: "If you carry a joke too far someone can get hurt." -Carol

Best Line: "Imagine, me, Mrs. Marcia Dentist." -Marcia
Funniest Line: Jan(about the Dentist)- "He's got a wife, children, maybe even a dog."

Best Line: "Something suddenly came up." -Greg, Marcia, Doug
Funniest Line: "Oh, my nose!" -Marcia
Moral: Appearances are deceiving, especially when it comes to people.
Brady Commentary: One of the most memorable of all the episodes. Maybe it's so well liked because people like seeing Marcia getting hit with a ball. She doesn't seem quite so perfect with a swollen nose, and becomes more likable for being dumped.


91)How To Suceed in Business?-Peter gets fired from his first job at the bike shop but has trouble telling his parents.

Neat-O Moment: The family eating outside on the patio.

Their whole existence is based on the song's lyrics "everybody's smiling, everybody's laughing" after all, that's how each episode ends.


93)Your Never Too Old-Mike and Carols grandparents visit and end up eloping.

Best Line: She's really with it and far out." -Jan (describing her grandma)
Moral: You're never too old for love.
Funniest Line: "I wouldn't speak to that man again if he were the only man alive with the key to the wine cellar." -Grandma Hutchins (about Grandpa Brady)
Brady Commentary: Great performances by Robert Reed and Florence Henderson as their own grandparents, it's easy to forget it's just them behind a lot of make-up.

Best Line: "I'm sick and tired of being second around here!" -Marcia
Most Wholesome Moments: Greg giving Marcia the attic, and Mike and Carol checking in on their sleeping kids.
Moral: Good things come to those who wait.
Theme: Young vs. Old
Brady Commentary: Why doesn't Marcia just use the upstairs phone extension she mentions in episode #13, there's one in the parents bedroom? Then she wouldn't have had to climb the stairs so much.
