Growing Up Brady

Later, a doorbell rings and the ex-Greg opens the door to find the ex-Marcia's Brady scrapbook (now selling on eBay for $86.50) with a note: Dear Barry, I wanted you to have this so you would never forget what it was like to grow up a Brady. The voice tells us that "even though the Brady Bunch started out as a Hollywood invention, we did become a real family."

The Barry is back, wandering around the Paramount lot and the old Brady set. He sees some random blonde sitting in the dark and says, "Remember that time we were in New York and you wouldn't let me sleep with you?" And of course it's not Maureen McCormick after all, but the stranger doesn't smack him, because she remembers him from The Brady Bunch. "Eight o'clock Friday night, I never missed it. But, you know, I've always been curious about one thing -- whatever happened to Tiger?" D'oh! The Barry had been expecting the Greg/Marcia question! Now is that slapstick or character-based comedy? Suddenly a very decrepit-looking Sherwood Schwartz appears for their meeting and apologizes for being late. The Barry says, "No problem, I was just talking to . . ." He turns around. And The Girl Is Gone! The fuck? What is this, The X-Brady Files? That was SUCH a random act of directorial stupidity! The Barry seems only vaguely surprised and mutters off with Sherwood. I wish Robert Reed was here to ream the director over that, 'cause I'd back him up with a shovel.
