The Brady Bunch : The pork chops and applesauce isn't it swell joke......

The pork chops and applesauce isn't it swell joke......

.......Went on for way too long in just one episode. Furthermore, since the episode was basically just about Bobby Brady trying to find that one thing over and over again that he had and he could do, but nobody else was allowed;

When the whole family started quoting "Pork Chops And Applesauce, Isn't It Swell" for the rest of the episode the way that Bobby was, doesn't that mean that gimmick is no longer his, and undermine the integrity of the episode it was trying to hold?

One more thing; the pun wasn't even his. He was supposed to come up with something all his own on his own, instead he just copied a Humphrey Bogart recording he was listening to and imitated his accent and right down to the t. That would undermine the credibility of the episode as well.

That episode was called "The Personality Kid" It WAS about Peter. He thought he was dull. And decided to "adopt" a new personality. He tried out a few. Then he had a party, where it took a bunch of GIRLS to convince him that he wasn't dull. Don't remember a plot about Bobby in this episode.

Thanks for the correction:

I meant to write Peter.

It's one of those lines from the show that people quote all the time and somehow became a meme. Along with "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia", "Oh my nose!" and "Don't play ball in the house". They are memorable quotes that define the show.
