The Brady Bunch : Real things you learned from The Brady Bunch

Real things you learned from The Brady Bunch

I'm not looking for the typical, "All I ever need to know I learned..." things like "Astroturf is a perfectly viable surface for your back yard." I'm looking for actual facts you picked up by watching the show.

The first two that come to mind for me are:

1. The left side is port ("Law and Disorder").

2. Forks on the left, knives and spoons on the right ("Kelly's Kids").

Times change...people don't. (Carol Brady, but can't remember what episode)

Putting an aspirin in the water helps flowers stay fresher. (Carol to Alice in the infamous "Mom always said don't play ball in the house" broken vase episode) I've never tried it, but still cool to know.

Peel onions under cold running water to reduce eye burn. Carol to Alice, to which Alice responds, "What? And miss a good cry?"

I'm now realizing that the things I remember were all said by Carol! I know I learned stuff from Mike, but can't remember specific things at this moment.

Re: Real things you learned from The Brady Bunch

Mike: Use calm, cool reasoning. Oh shut up. To himself in the Buddy Hinton episode.

Re: Real things you learned from The Brady Bunch

I learned:
1. Of the existence of the S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, and why it's
shaped the way it is.

2. That Benedict Arnold walked with a limp.

The episode where Bobby was trying too hard at things and Marcia told him to be more normal, more or less. That struck me how women want an even keeled guy, not some loud comedian or silent loner, but someone in the middle.

Re: Real things you learned from The Brady Bunch

-Sam "The Butcher" moonlighted as Archie Bunker's friend, Barney Hefner.
