The Bradys Live On


I try to instill in the kids an appreciation for the finer things in life…

I bought the DVD collection of Season 1 - The Brady Bunch for the kids to consume during our yearly trek touring the homeland, the Northeast.

If you recall, Mike Brady was an architect.

INT. RESTROOM OFF OF HIGHWAY 81

Sark and Sasha are both in the bathroom stalls side by side.  I'm waiting, holding Sark's broken stall door closed.

SARK
Mom, what do you think of Mike Brady’s designs?

ME
Well... 

I roll my eyes and motion with my finger to move this along.

SARK
Sasha.  What do you think?

SASHA
I love the stairs!  I bet they would be fun to jump off.

SARK
Mom, what do you think, really?

FLUSH.  Sark tugs on the door and I release my hold.  He walks to the sink.  Sark pauses before washing his hands and turns to me, very serious...

SARK (CONT’D)
I mean, I really don’t think they are very good.

I’m a little concerned that Sasha’s favorite character is Marsha... Marsha, Marsha, Marsha.
