The Brady Bunch

The Brady Bunch (19691974) was an American television situation comedy, airing on ABC, based around a large blended family.

Theme songEdit

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 1Edit

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

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?
