"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.


A Very Brady Sequel (1996)
Alice: That Sam is so thoughtful. He promised to slip me a special tube steak.

Cindy Brady: If I wasn't too busy looking for my doll, I would've seen something suspicious. This is all my fault.
Kitty Carry-all: I bet he wouldn't have tied me up if I was Barbie. This is all my fault.
Peter Brady: What a dumb-head I am. I guess Roy was not much of a hero after all. This is all my fault.
Alice: I must've not put enough mushrooms in his spaghetti sauce. This is all my fault.
Greg Brady: Marcia looks great in those ropes... Wait a minute, what am I saying? This is all my fault!
Jan Brady: It was wrong to make up George Glass. This is all my fault!
Marcia: This is all Jan's fault.

Alice Nelson: Anybody who believes in a ghost is a sucker.

Greg Brady: [trying to think of something that'll scare Alice] What about vampires?

Cindy Brady: Jan, what are you doing?
Jan Brady: Go back to sleep Cindy!
Cindy Brady: Jan don't. Marcia's hair is so beautiful.
Jan Brady: Exactly. That's why I'm gonna make alot of money when I sell it.

Cindy Brady: [chasing Bobby into the kitchen where Alice is mopping] Jesse James, you're under arrest!
