"The Brady Bunch: To Move or Not to Move (#1.23)" (1970)
Carol Brady: Well Alice, the kids do need more bedrooms, and you know we need another bathroom.
Alice Nelson: Well the old McIntyre house up on the hill has lots of rooms. It's old but it can be fixed up, it's been for sale for years.
Carol Brady: I wonder why they haven't been able to sell that house?
Alice Nelson: The same reason the McIntyres moved out, it's haunted.
Carol Brady: Haunted? Oh Alice.
Alice Nelson: I knew the cook, said a lot of weird things were going on up there: voices in the night, chains rattling, lights going on and off.
Carol Brady: Now Alice, you don't believe that.
Alice Nelson: The cook did, left the McIntyres flat.
Carol Brady: And you know as well as I do there's no such things as ghosts.
Alice Nelson: Maybe not, but they were never able to explain those voices.

Carol Brady: [both hear an unearthly moaning] WHAT was that?
Alice Nelson: It sounded like a cow died in the driveway.
[the moan sounds again]
Alice Nelson: Oh no, now it sounds human, like somebody in agony.
Carol Brady: Alice, that DOESN'T sound human.
Alice Nelson: Oh no... inhuman?

Cindy Brady: That terrible noise woke us up!
Bobby Brady: What do you suppose it was?
Alice Nelson: [a loud creaking sounds] Or is?
Carol Brady: Well sometimes a loose board will make a house creak.
Cindy Brady: You sound just like Daddy.

Carol Brady: Mike, there has to be an explanation for all these strange sounds.
Mike Brady: I haven't heard any strange sounds.
Carol Brady: Yeah that's right, you got in after they stopped.
Alice Nelson: Well there is an explanation alright, the ghosts in the McIntyre house got tired of living alone and moved in where there's more action.
Mike Brady: Oh Alice, even if you're joking, that's absurd.
Alice Nelson: Well if I'm not joking, it's not absurd. You should've heard those kids this morning before they left for school, they were as scared as I was.

Alice Nelson: Uh oh.
Mike Brady, Carol Brady: Now what?
Alice Nelson: The light in the oven is blinking something in Morse code: I'll bet the word is trouble.
Mike Brady: I'll bet the word's defective switch. I'll check it out later.
Alice Nelson: Why not sooner? There's something about an oven winking at me that gives me the creeps.

Carol Brady: Is that McIntyre banshee on the loose again?
Peter Brady: There's something out here, Mom.
Alice Nelson: 3 very definite crashes.
Greg Brady: I'll say there were.
Marcia Brady: Greg was helping me with that flat tire on my bike when we heard them.
Carol Brady: Maybe Tiger's wrestling with those garbage cans again.
Greg Brady: Oh it can't be, Tiger's sleeping in the house tonight.
Carol Brady: In the house? Why?
Marcia Brady: He was getting spooked by all those funny noises.
Alice Nelson: Just like everyone else around here.
Peter Brady: After all, he's only human
[another crash sounds]
Peter Brady, Alice Nelson: Four!
Carol Brady: I think we better take another look around.
Alice Nelson: All of us?
Carol Brady: There's safety in numbers, Alice, come on.

Cindy Brady, Bobby Brady: [all hear a loud slamming noise] What was that?
Carol Brady: [taken aback] Ub, hey, wa, it's probably the wind, uh, banging against the shutters.
Alice Nelson: That would be a good guess, Mrs. Brady, if there *was* a wind, and we had shutters.

Alice Nelson: Well, this whole thing kind of depresses me, Mrs. Brady. I got my routine all worked out here. I don't know if I'll be able to function some place else.
Carol Brady: But, Alice you will function, won't you? I mean, just because we're moving, you're not going to leave.
Alice Nelson: Me? Leave the Brady family? You couldn't get rid of me if you tried. I'm a hundred-and-twenty-pound boomerang.
Carol Brady: A hundred and TWENTY pounds?
Alice Nelson: Mmmm, more or less.

Ross Harper: Why do you keep calling me Chuck?
Carol Brady: Because that's your name. Chuck Brady.
Ross Harper: You mean I'm your son? I'm a Brady!

Carol Brady: Why don't you take off your robe and get started on the day?
Ross Harper: Uh no, you see, I wear this robe around the house all day.
Carol Brady: Now that's not very Brady of you, honey.
[Ross tears open his robe and gasps as he finds himself in Brady Bunch attire]
Carol Brady: There! There now, isn't that better?
Ross Harper: Does it concern you that I'm wearing high heels?

Carol Brady: You know, there's nothing like that 27th cup of coffee in the morning!

Mike Brady: You got an F?
Ross Harper: Are you mad?
Carol Brady: Of course not!
Marcia Brady: We've all gotten bad grades before.
Ross Harper: You have?
Bobby Brady: Why do you think we're all still living at home?

Mike Brady: Oh honey, look what I dug up out of the attic. My old ukulele. I'm gonna be the cat's meow at that roaring '20s party.
Carol Brady: Roaring '20s?
Mike Brady: That's where we all get roaring and act like we're 20!
Ross Harper: Wait a minute. You said that before.
Mike Brady: Of course we did!
Ross Harper: Well then, why did you just say it again?
Carol Brady: This is a rerun, Chuck!

Mr. Hillary: 'My Hero by Robert Brady: My hero is a very famous man, just like Robin Hood and the 3 Musketeers. He was a great American, and his name is Jesse James.
Mike Brady: Jesse James?
Carol Brady: The outlaw?
Mr. Hillary: It disturbs me when impressionable children like Bobby read books and see movies that glorify men like Jesse James, turn them into folk heroes. Jesse James was a cruel and vicious killer.
Carol Brady: I'm really surprised at Bobby.
Mr. Hillary: Well don't be, Mrs. Brady, look at what's happening today. The press writes stories about gangsters and skyjackers, they make them seem very glamorous in the eyes of the children.

Mike Brady: Bad news?
Carol Brady: He didn't say, but when the principal calls, is it ever good news?

Marcia Brady: It's loaded with music, dancing and lots of comedy.
Bobby Brady: Stay tuned, folks. The comedy starts right after this monologue.

Carol Brady: Honey, can we have our picnic on the beach? I would somehow like to justify this incredible rent we're paying.
