From the Sublime to the Ridiculous
16 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

I don't think any other episode had the kids divided on a situation as this one did.

Bobby, Cindy and Marcia were with Mom when the accident occurred, so they knew how serious it was.

Jan and Peter treated it like a joke, Greg was rather passive about it.

One of the few laughs Florence Henderson got from us was with this episode, when Coogan is leaving and says he'll see them in court, Henderson rings out, "my pleasure!" and off-screen as well. That really made it even funnier.

But then we get Mike Brady doing his Daffy Duck imitation (when the kid duck kept hitting the man at the shooting gallery with a slingshot eveytime Daffy fired at the target, finally Daffy just goes 'bang!' and when the guy gets slingshotted again, Daffy gives him that wide-eyed smile of, wasn't me! The guy hit him anyway) and throwing that briefcase.

"Mr. Brady, I must ask you not to throw briefcases in my courtroom," is what I wished the judge had said.
