Theme song[edit]

Here's the story of a lovely lady Who was bringing up three very lovely girls. All of them had hair of gold, like their mother, The youngest one in curls.

Here's the story, of a man named Brady, Who was busy with three boys of his own, They were four men, living all together, Yet they were all alone.

Till the one day when the lady met this fellow And they knew it was much more than a hunch, That this group would somehow form a family. That's the way we all became the Brady Bunch.

The Brady Bunch, the Brady Bunch That's the way we became the Brady Bunch.

Season 1[edit]

The Honeymoon [1.1][edit]

Alice: I don’t blame you for being nervous, Mr. Brady. This is a very important Saturday.
Mike: [puts sugar into his coffee] Why should I be nervous? What makes you think I’m nervous?
Alice: It’s the first time I ever saw you take twenty-one spoons of sugar.
Mike: [pauses] I like it sweet.

Carol: [on the phone] Im sorry Mike. Cindy thought there are real butterflies in my stomach.
Mike: You’re lucky if you only get butterflies. I’ve got six flying saucers in mine. And you're right.

Carol: [stressed, hair undone, in the middle of using make up] How could you girls sit there and say I look beautiful?
Cindy: Because we love you.

Peter: [to Mike] I once saw a movie where a man was getting married. He was so nervous he forgot to put his pants on.
Bobby: [looks under the table] You’re OK, dad.

Peter: [to Carol, about Mike] This morning he put 21 spoons sugar into the coffee
Mike: You’re exaggerating.
Bobby: But he didn’t forget his pants.

Desk clerk: Oh, Mr. Brady, you have signed this Mr. Brady, Mrs. Brady and family.
Mike: Hmm, I forgot. It’s force of habit. Kids aren’t with us.
Desk clerk: But you did ask for the honeymoon suite.
Carol: Oh, it’s quite alright Mr. Pringle. You see …
Mike: [interrupts her] It’s quite alright darling. No need to explain. It’s obvious that this gentleman doesn’t dig the modern generation.

Mike: How would you girls like to come along with us?
Jan: On your honeymoon?
Carol: That’s right.
Cindy: Alright. I’ve never been on a honeymoon.
Jan: Neither have I, and I am older than you are.

Bobby: Wow, I'd love to go on a honeymoon. What should I take?
Greg: A girl, dummy!

Dear Libby [1.2][edit]

Cindy: You cheated.
Bobby: I did not. And besides: You didn’t see me.
Cindy: I did too!

Carol: I don’t hear anything
Mike: What’s the matter with that?
Carol: Six kids and no noise. That’s what’s the matter with that… I’ve never heard such a loud silence.

Alice: If there's anything I can't stand, it's a perfect kid. And six of them...YEECH!

Cindy: [upon finding out it's another family] I sure am glad we're not Harry Hopeless!

Eenie, Meenie, Mommy, Daddy [1.3][edit]

Alice: Anyone offering a trip to Europe for the right answer?

Alice: Look who gets to go.
Cindy: [takes off blindfold] Brazil!

Cindy: [as she picks off flower petals] Eenie, Meenie, Mommy, Daddy.

Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore [1.4][edit]

Carol: It's just not gonna be the same without Alice.
Mike: Well, we can't make her stay. Abraham Lincoln put a stop to that.

Katchoo [1.5][edit]

Carol: I'm afraid we were going to get rid of daddy!

A Clubhouse Is Not a Home [1.6][edit]

Mike: Well then?
Greg: We're sick of doing all these things.
Peter: Do this, do that, they're a real pain.
Bobby: Yeah, they're too bossy.

Kitty Karry-All Is Missing [1.7][edit]

[Cindy's doll has gone missing and she blames Bobby]
Greg: Come on, Bobby, you can tell us.
Bobby: What?
Peter: Where did you hide Cindy's doll?
Bobby: I didn't hide it, like I told Mom.
Peter: Honest?
Bobby: Honest.
Greg: Would you swear to it? The sacred oath?
Bobby: Even the sacred oath.
Peter: Boy, that proves he didn't take it. No sir!
[In girls' room]
Marcia: Are you sure Bobby took her?
Cindy: Sure I am, he said he hated Kitty!
Jan: I heard him say it lots of times.
Cindy: And she doesn't even have her bottle, she'll starve to death!
Marcia: Come on. (takes Cindy's hand)
Cindy: Where are we going?
Marcia: We're gonna get that doll back.
Jan: Yeah. (They leave for boys' room)
[Back in boys' room]
Peter: If Bobby didn't take it, Cindy shouldn't say he did.
Greg: Right. Come on, she can't accuse him and get away with it. (They leave for girls' room)
[Girls enter the boys' room]
Marcia: Bobby, you give Kitty back or... (they realize room is empty)
[Boys enter the girls' room]
Greg: Now listen here, Cindy, you... (they realize room is empty, Greg turns towards the open bathroom door) Come on.
[The children meet in the bathroom]
Marcia: Bobby, you give Kitty back!
Greg: You stop picking on him!
Jan: What did you do with her?
Peter: He didn't do anything with her!
Cindy: He did too!
Bobby: I did not!
Marcia: You did so!
Greg: He did not so!
Marcia: Oh yeah?
Greg: Yeah!
[Mike and Carol enter]
Mike: Hey, hey, hey, what's going on in here?
[The kids argue]
Mike: Hold it! Will somebody fill me in?
Carol: Well, Cindy's doll is missing, and the girls think Bobby took it.
Mike: Well, Bobby?
Bobby: I didn't take it!
Marcia: He did too!
Greg: He did not!
[The kids argue]
Mike: Hut! Alright, everybody into his room, come on, hurry up!
[The kids all leave for their respective rooms]
Greg: Bobby didn't take the doll, he didn't do it!
Mike: Quiet. (shuts the boys' room door)
[Mike is explaining circumstantial evidence]
Bobby: Circum-special?
Mike: No, circumstantial. It means things look different than they really are.
Cindy: You mean like when a lady puts on false eyelashes?
[After the mock trial, Greg and Bobby are playing baseball outside]
Greg: Harder.
Greg: Come on, Bobby, burn it in.
[Mike and Carol arrive home]
Mike: Hey, Greg's playing with Bobby. That little talk about fair play seems to have done some good.
Greg: Hey, dad.
Mike: Yes?
Greg: Would you burn some in for me? Bobby can't even dit my glove.
Mike: Maybe later, Greg. Why don't you ask Peter? He's a good pitcher.
Greg: Yeah, a good pitcher, but a rotten jury. Come on, Bobby.
Carol: What's that all about?
Mike: Don't ask me, I only live here.
Bobby: Now let's see, if I was a doll, where would I go?
Greg: To me, sweetheart!

A-Camping We Will Go [1.8][edit]

Bobby: Well I guess women are okay for somethings.


(The Bradys will all go on their first camping trip together)
Marcia: But mother, us on a camping trip? We've told you it's way worse than death!
Jan: Do you expect me to sleep in a tent?
Cindy: With wild animals?
Carol: Girls, we're not going to Africa. We're just going camping.
Marcia: And camping is for boys!
Carol: Camping is for boys and girls. Why, it's so much fun falling asleep on the ground.
Jan: On the ground, all those beetles are crawling around. Yuck!
Cindy: Yeah, yuck!
Carol: Why, you haven't got the faintest idea how delightful it is out there under the stars, being lulled to sleep by the sound of crickets, and then awakening in the morning to the smell of bacon frying over an open fire.
Marcia: How many times have you been camping, Mom?
Carol: Well, never, but I've heard about it.
Jan: And I've heard about it, too, and you can count me out. (collapses on the bed)
Carol: You are counted in, young lady. We have three new brothers and a new father, and if they like camping, we like camping. Now, there'll be no more discussion about it; the decision has been made.

Sorry, Right Number [1.9][edit]

Every Boy Does It Once [1.10][edit]

Marcia: Hi and bye, small fry.

Peter: I'm sorry, I won't tell anybody!
Greg: Won't tell what?
Peter: I told you, I can't tell you! I promised Bobby, the only reason he told me is, cause I'm his brother.
Greg: Well, so am I, dummy!

Bobby: Nobody said goodbye to me or anything, and I didn't think they cared.
Carol: Oh sweetheart, everybody cares. And I bet you your baseball cards you can't guess who cares the most.
Bobby: You? (Carol nods) Even though I'm only a step?
Carol: Listen, the only steps in this house are those (shows Bobby the stairs), the ones that lead up to your bedroom. So how about marching right back up there?
Bobby: Hey Dad, Mom and me are back home again!
Mike: Good, cause that's where you both belong!

Cindy: He's better than a doctor, he's Santa Claus!

Greg: Now, don't let the girls catch you hiding these.

Peter: Eat it! [to Greg] He's been watching too many of those spy programs.

Greg: Well then give it to the king and give me some baloney!

Marica: Gentlemen...if you don't like the conversation in this room....
Jan: Which by-the-way happens to be a WOMAN'S room....
Marcia: True! Then you can simply VAMOOSE!
Jan: Scram!

Carol: Oh, Mike! Why don't we just put it off until you decide which doctor?
Mike: At this point I'd SETTLE for a witch doctor.

Greg: Peter's t-shirt got stuck in the vacuum.

Mike: What?

Brace Yourself [1.20][edit]

Cindy: Daddy said to act natural--and I always barge in on Marcia when she's in the bathroom!

Alan: I can't take you to the dance.
Marcia: Why not?
Alan: Well, my parents are going out of town.
Marcia: So what?
Alan: I have to go with them.

Bobby: No. Greg, do you know what she's talking about?
Greg: No. Marcia, do you know what you're talking about?
Marcia: I certainly do! Someone in this room took my diary.
Greg: Your diary, you mean you actually keep one of those stupid things?
Bobby: What's a diary?
Peter: It's a book, that you write things in, that you don't want anyone else to read.
Bobby: Why?
Greg: So, you could write stuff like...
Greg: [Greg then sits at his desk imitating Marcia writing in her diary] "Dear diary, at last I met him, my dream man. It was at the delicatessen and our fingers tingled as we reached for the same potato salad."

To Move or Not to Move [1.23][edit]

Carol: [about the first strange noise] WHAT was that?
Alice: It sounded like a cow died in the driveway.

Carol: [about the strange noises] It's probably just the wind against the shutters.
Alice: That would be a good guess, Mrs. Brady... if there was a wind... or we had shutters.

Mrs. Hunsacker: You folks sure pick a strange time of the year to celebrate Halloween.

Bert Grossman: [trying to explain the strange noises] It was probably just the wind through the willow grove.

What Goes Up... [2.11][edit]

(Carol, Alice and Cindy are looking after Bobby)
Alice: (brings another pillow to rest Bobby's leg) If you ask me, I think it's a miracle.
Carol: Yes, that he only sprained his ankle.
Alice: No, I meant that it's a miracle that you have a doctor that makes housecalls.
Cindy: He didn't even ask Bobby to stick out his tongue and say "Ah".

Tiger: [barking and running down the stairs]
Bobby: Mom, Dad, my parakeet's loose! Tiger, stop scaring my parakeet!

Bobby: You did?
Sam: Yeah. Well, I weighed only 4 pounds when I was born, my old man wanted to send me back. I even flunked out of kindergarten, you know why?
Bobby: Why?
Sam: I was such a peewee the teacher kept marking me absent. (laughs)

(Carol is looking at Bobby stretching himself outside)
Mike: What are you looking at?
Carol: Bobby. You think it's good for him to stretch himself like that?
Mike: Never hurt Tarzan.
Carol: Oh, think what it did to Jane.
Mike: Honey, he's not gonna hurt himself.
Carol: He's at it all the time.
Mike: So?
Carol: Well, if his arms stretch and his legs don't, he may grow up to look like Cheetah. (both laugh)

(Bobby returns to his room to measure himself, but he's not any taller than before)
Bobby: (dejectedly) Nothing. Still the same size. (pushes the door open)
Marcia: Bobby, you got to give yourself a little time.
Bobby: Guess I better stretch more.
(Bobby returns to stretching)
(Jan and Cindy look on, Marcia joins them)
Marcia: Poor Bobby. He keeps measuring himself all the time.
Cindy: And he gets grumpier and grumpier.
Jan: No wonder, he's trying so hard to get tall.
Marcia: If he would just grow a little. Even half an inch would encourage him.

Bobby: Mom, dad, it works! Stretching myself really works! I grew an inch and a half!
Mike: How much?
Bobby: A whole inch and a half!
Carol: Oh, honey, maybe you grew, but I don't think an inch and a half.
Mike: Not since yesterday.
Bobby: But I measured myself three times! A half inch, plus one whole inch!
Cindy: No, it's only a half an inch!
Bobby: How do you know it's only half an inch?
Cindy: Well...
Mike: Yeah, how do you know, Cindy?
Cindy: I made the mark a half inch lower, so that Bobby would think he grew!
Mike: Cindy!
Cindy: I'm sorry!
Bobby: Well, that's okay, I still grew an inch!
Jan: No, only half an inch.
Carol: You did the same thing too? (Jan nods)
Bobby: Well, a half inch isn't bad.
Marcia: Bobby.
Carol: Oh, no.
Marcia: I guess we should have checked with each other.
Bobby: That's the dirtiest trick I've ever heard of! (runs off)
Mike: Bobby. They weren't trying to trick you. I don't think that what they did was right--
Carol: They were only trying to help.
Bobby: They did it because they know it's true!
Carol: Now what's true?
Bobby: I'm a shrimpo, a peewee, I'll never grow another inch as long as I live! (runs up the stairs)

(Bobby walks in)
Carol: Hi, Bobby! Hey, wait a minute, your clothes! (Bobby turns around with a black eye)
Carol: Bobby, your eye! What in the world happened?
Bobby: I got in a fight with Tommy Huxley.
Carol: Tommy Huxley? He's twice as big as you are! Why doesn't he pick on somebody his own size?
Bobby: Well, I picked on him.
Carol: You started a fight? Why?
Bobby: Well, he was acting like a big shot.
Carol: Oh. Well, you weren't by any chance feeling like a little shot, were you?
Bobby: Well, I am a little shot, that all I'll ever be!
Carol: Oh, Bobby. Listen, you've heard about Napoleon Bonaparte, haven't you?
Bobby: Yeah, he's that funny guy that always walked around with his hand on his stomach.
Carol: Well, he was also a little guy. And he went around trying to prove how big he was by fighting everybody.
Bobby: Did he win?
Carol: Nope, just like you he got clobbered. So I really don't think that fighting is the answer. Do you, Bob?
Bobby: Not if you lose.

(Greg had lost the chin-up bet against Bobby and has to act as Bobby's servant for a week)
Marcia: Will you be finished soon?
Jan: We have to get to the library before it closes.
Greg: What's that got to do with me?
Marcia: You're driving us.
Greg: (laughs) I'm not driving you to the library!
Jan: Yes you are, Bobby said so.
Marcia: We'll wait in the car.

(Mike's high school reunion is coming up, Carol tries to guess who was "Bobo" in his class)

Carol: Sally? Oh no, how could Bobo stand for Sally?
Mike: Betty.
Carol: Betty? Betty! Bobo, Betty, Bobo, yeah.

Greg: You mean that, Jan?
Jan: You're right, I sure do!
Greg: Well, if that's what you want, I'm sure it can be arranged. Right, you guys? (Marcia, Peter, Bobby and Cindy agree)
Peter: You just lost yourself five brothers and sisters!
Marcia: And you can have the whole house to yourself.
Jan: Great!
Cindy: For us, too!
Greg: As far as you're concerned, we don't even exist.

(The boys return)

(Jan leaves, Greg slams the door after her)

(Jan prepares to leave for the library, Marcia stops her)
Marcia: Hey, just a minute, you!
Jan: What? (Marcia yanks her sweater back) What do you think you're doing?
Marcia: That's my sweater!
Jan: So what? I always borrow your sweater!
Marcia: Well, not any more. You no longer have a sister named Marcia, and if there's no Marcia, there's no Marcia's sweater.
Carol: Okay, kids, okay.
Marcia: Mom, we made a deal, remember?
Carol: Yes, I remember.
Marcia: And I'm sticking to it.
Carol: Jan, do you want to stick to it?
Jan: Yes!
Marcia: Fine. I'll just take my invisible sweater and (snaps fingers) vanish. (leaves)
Jan: That's not fair!
Carol: I'm afraid it is, honey, you can't have it both ways. So long. (Jan leaves)

Cindy: For you! All rats eat cheese! (leaves angrily)

(Cindy is explaining her predicament to Carol)
Cindy: And he wrote down the names, even mine!
Carol: But that's his job, sweetheart.
Cindy: Yes, but I'm his very own sister!
Carol: Well, that doesn't give you any special privileges. The same rules apply to you that apply to anyone else.
Cindy: (angrily) I don't see why they should.
Carol: Let me see... I'll try to explain it to you this way. Let's say that Bobby was a policeman, and I drove through a red light. Accidentally, of course. Well, I would expect him to give me a ticket.
Cindy: Your own son?
Carol: Absolutely.
Cindy: Boy, if I ever had a son who was a policeman and he gave me a ticket, I'd give him a spanking!
[Bobby comes in, Cindy leaves angrily]
Bobby: I guess she was complaining about me.
Carol: You guessed right.
Bobby: And I guess you took her side.
Carol: You guessed wrong.
Bobby: You didn't?
Carol: No. Well, Cindy didn't like it, but you were just doing your duty.
[Bobby leaves]
Carol: I wonder if he really would give me a ticket.

[Carol and Alice find Bobby in a sea of foam from the overflowing washing machine]

(Epilogue: The Bradys are getting the boat ready)
Carol: Hey, where's Bobby?
Mike: I thought he was here, he- (Bobby arrives in very tight slacks he ruined in the washing machine earlier)
Greg: (laughing) Where did you get those?
Jan: That's tighter than your skin!
Bobby: Mom told me to wear something that wouldn't matter if it got dirty or wet.
Alice: Aren't those his good pants?
Carol: Those were his good pants. Listen, Bobby, next time before you wash something, will you check the label where it says "dry clean only"?

(In the girls' room)
Jan: Me play one of the seven dwarfs?
Cindy: You liked Mrs. Whitfield, didn't you?
Jan: Sure, she was my favorite teacher. She was Marcia's favorite teacher too. I think she was even Mom's favorite teacher.
Cindy: Boy, she's been teaching since the older days.
Jan: You better not say that around Mom.
Cindy: Well, will you help me with the play?
Jan: Sure. If I can be Dopey.
Cindy: Well, you can't be Dopey.
Jan: Why not?
Cindy: I'm saving that part for someone special.
Jan: Who?
Cindy: Me.
(Cut to bathroom, knock on the door)
Marcia: Come in.
Cindy: Marcia, how about--

(Cindy leaves)
(Cut to Greg's room, Cindy knocks on the door)

Alice: I'd love to! Can I play Dopey?
Cindy: That part's already taken, six times.
Alice: What have you got left?
Cindy: How about the wicked queen?
Alice: You got yourself a deal. If I can't be a wacky dwarf, I'll be a wicked queen. (imitates evil laughter)
Cindy: That was good. Thanks, Alice!

(Rehearsal)

Alice: (imitating the wicked queen voice) Mirror, mirror, that I see, is there anyone prettier than me? (normal voice) How's that?
Mike: Wicked, Alice. Wicked.
Alice: (wicked queen voice) Mirror, mirror, in my.. (accidentally stirs soup with the mirror) soup?!

Brady kids and Sam: (singing) Heigh ho, heigh ho, it's home from work we go! (whistle) Heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho, heigh ho, we're seven in a row (whistle, Sam stops), heigh ho.

Bobby: Wanna play a game or something, Alice?
Alice: Oh, gee, I'm sorry, Bobby, not tonight. I gotta go to bed early, I didn't sleep very well last night.
Bobby: Why not?
Alice: Well, I stayed up half the night, watching one of those TV horror movies, "The Demon of Devoured Detroit", gave both of us heartburn. (leaves, Greg comes in)

The Driver's Seat [5.15][edit]

(Bobby and Cindy are playing checkers on Cindy's bed, Jan walks in)

Bobby: I win.
Jan: Maybe Bobby cheated.
Cindy: Did you cheat?
Bobby: No, Jan just got a big mouth and bad eyes.
Jan: He didn't really cheat, Cindy.
Cindy: Then why did you say that?
Jan: It's a debating tactic. I force Bobby into defending himself by accusing him of something.
Bobby: I get enough accusing around here from mom and dad.
Jan: Hey, you two accuse me of something and I'll defend myself.
Bobby: Okay. I accuse you.. of being weird. (leaves the room)
Jan: I'm on the debating team at school and I really need practice. Choose a subject and pick a side.
Cindy: Okay. I pick Bobby's side, you are weird. (leaves)
Jan: Won't anybody around here debate me? (picks up Cindy's Kitty Karry-All doll) You, pick a side.

Peter: What did you bet?
Bobby: Same thing as Greg and Marcia. The person who comes closer to the stopline without going over wins.
Cindy: And the loser has to do the winner's chores for a whole year.
Peter: Well, first you better look at something, Bobby. (points to Greg doing ironing)
Bobby: Ain't too easy to beat a dumb ol' girl anyway. (leaves)
Cindy: Chicken.

Out Of This World [5.16][edit]

(Peter and Bobby are camping out in the backyard, waiting for their "UFO" to appear)

(Jan and Cindy come outside)
Cindy: Hey, did the UFO land yet?
Bobby: No. Do you see one?
Jan: Oh, well we thought that maybe you hit it in your sleeping bags.
Peter: Look, if you just came out here to make jokes, you can leave.
Bobby: Yeah!
Cindy: Oh, we believe in flying objects, Peter.
Jan: It's just that flying objects don't believe in us.
Peter: (hops up) Listen, if you guys aren't out of here in three seconds, you're both gonna be flying objects!
Jan: Ooh, quiver!
Cindy: Qui, qui.
Peter: Pass off!

(Greg and Marcia were playing a trick on Peter and Bobby with the "UFO")

Alice: Anybody for more flapjacks? Right off the grill and still flappin'?
Cindy: Oh yeah, Alice!
Jan: Me too.
Greg: No, I gotta get going.
Marcia: Same here.
Alice: Aren't you gonna stick around and see how Peter and Bobby's UFO pictures turned out?
Greg: No, in their case I think "UFO" means "Undoubtedly Flipped Out".
Marcia: Hey Alice, if any space creatures do show up, give them some flapjacks and tell them to stick around for a while.

Welcome Aboard [5.17][edit]

(Carol broke the news to the kids that their cousin Oliver will come to live with them)

Bobby: (annoyed) Hey, Pete! Pete, you sleeping?
Peter: Are you kidding? Who can sleep with that buzz-saw going?
Bobby: Yeah, for a little guy, he sure snores big.
Peter: Sounds like the MGM Lion.
Bobby: How are we going to get any sleep?
Peter: I've read once where you can stop people from snoring by rolling them over. Let's try it.
Bobby: All right.
(Peter and Bobby try to roll Oliver over)
Bobby: He's heavier than he looks.
(Peter and Bobby fall on the floor, breaking the lamp on nightdesk)
Oliver: Would you guys be a little bit more quiet? A guy can't get any sleep around here!

(Mike in lecturing Peter, Jan, Bobby and Cindy about Oliver)

Mike: I'm surprised at you. You had poor Oliver shaken up.
Jan: But we had no idea he was listening, Dad.
Cindy: Or else we would have closed the window.
Mike: Honey, that's not the point.

(Mike confronted the four younger kids about their "jinx" business against Oliver)

Cindy: Boy, I guess that means Oliver has to come with us on the tour of the movie studio Saturday.
Jan: Yeah.
Peter: I sure hope we don't have any more of those so-called coincidences.
Bobby: Yeah, just when we ask for an autograph, we get hit by a truck.
