Marcia is walking around in a daze. By the flowery language she is using, Carol knows why: Marcia's in love. The object of Marcia's affection is Harvey Klinger. Despite Mike thinking they should stay out of Marcia's love life, Carol tries to help Marcia get Harvey's attention, he who has no idea that Marcia even exists. She does so by helping Marcia learn about Harvey's hobby: insects. It's not so much a hobby, but an all-consuming passion. Carol's ploy works. It works a little too well as Harvey asks Marcia to go steady. Carol believes thirteen year old Marcia is too young to go steady. When Marcia's version of thirteen year old steady gets a little too serious for both Carol and Mike's liking, Mike, using some words straight out of Marcia and Harvey's mouths, thinks he knows how to make them realize that their puppy love is not adult love.

Marcia And The Bug Expert
24 January 2021 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Marcia has a crush on Harvey Klinger, a boy who is fascinated by the study of insects.

One of the best of Season 2. Greg is surprised when he hears of Marcia's crush, who he thinks is a "double dingbat". Marcia decides to study up on bugs so Harvey notices her. Harvey is played by Billy Corcoran, who appeared in good Wonderful World Of Disney show in 1967 "Atta Girl Kelly". Marcia and Harvey decide to go steady and Mike and Carol reluctantly go along with it. Funny final scene when we see how fickle Marcia is with steady boyfriends
