Annette O'Toole and Carl Ballantine
9 March 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Partridge Up a Pear Tree" is the first of many episodes with Keith at the mercy of Danny, here having purchased his first car (a Hudson!), which needs just about every spare part known to man. Only Danny is willing to loan Keith any money, provided he sign an agreement giving his little brother power of attorney (oh, the absurdity of it all!). Keith only has enough cash to take his girl Carol (Annette O'Toole) to a kiddie matinée, where he raves about Lash La Rue while dining on burnt popcorn (she claims that ashes upset her stomach). No matter how understanding she is, Keith hasn't got the guts to tell her the truth, that despite the group's success, all the profits are going into the family's college trust fund (that explains why they continue to live in the same small house, living a mostly normal life). Funny cameos from Joseph Perry, previously seen in "But the Memory Lingers On," and Carl Ballantine, who fails to teach Keith how to be a salesman (Shirley: "you know, if you keep up the hard work, you might owe your first million before you're 30!"). The featured song is Tony Romeo's "You Are Always on My Mind," currently the B-side of the second single, "Doesn't Somebody Want to Be Wanted," both tracks included on second LP UP TO DATE.
