Storyline

After doing Bobby a favor of driving him to the pet store to buy a frog for the frog jumping contest which has a $25 first prize, Greg is rewarded for his efforts by getting grounded - no use of the car for one week - as Bobby tells his parents of Greg almost getting into a car accident purely out of his own carelessness. Greg is annoyed enough about Bobby blabbing on him and being grounded in and of itself, but he is more depressed about the repercussions on his dating life, as there is no way he can now pick up the concert tickets for his already promised date with Rachel. Greg thinks he's found a loophole in the grounding as he drives a friend's car to pick up the tickets instead. Caught in this action, Greg is further grounded, which means that he will now miss his date with Rachel altogether. Feeling he is being cheated while still doing whatever he can to keep his date, Greg enters into a negotiation with his parents as to his punishment. Based on Greg's argument, Mike believes ...

Bobby Blabs? Bobby Sends Greg Up The River Is More Like It!
14 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Memorable episode for Greg's usage of Mike's 'exact words', tho even that has a hiccup. Greg argued in favor of what were Mike's exact words and then Greg was the one held to his exact words. He didn't say he was good at his word usage, it was Mike as the parent who was supposed to know what he was talking about.

Still, it made for a classic Brady plot line.

However, maybe I just now paid attention or the episode was edited up considerably when I watched it before, but in the opening, Greg brings Bobby home from getting his frogs and what does Bobby do? "Greg was driving like a fool! Greg was a maniac behind the steering wheel! I was so scared! You should have been there, mom and dad! Little old ladies and schoolchildren were running away from the car!" Hey, Bobby, he did you a favor and said he would do you another one, then you execute him like this? Good going, kid brother.

Perhaps also memorable for Mike Brady's serious hostility, rarely seen on the show. "You're forbidden to use the car for a week, Greg. Wanna try for three?" This is about the closest hint we get to a promise of a fistfight between Mike and Greg had the show continued for a sixth season.

Definite potential.
