A Room at the Top is the twenty-third and season-ending episode of Season 4 of The Brady Bunch, and the 95th overall episode of the series. Written by William Raynor and Myles Wilder and directed by Lloyd J. Schwartz, it first aired 23 March 1973 on ABC.
Both Greg and Marcia want to use the attic for a private bedroom.
To get a little more privacy which he doesn't seem to be able to find at the house and gain a little more freedom, Greg wants to move out of the house and into his college friend Hank's apartment. Despite understanding Greg's wants, Mike disallows Greg's request. But after the family starts cleaning up the attic, Greg, as an alternative, wants to use it as his own bedroom. That idea Mike does approve.
Unknown to them, Marcia also has the same idea of using the attic as her own bedroom, which gets Carol's approval. When Greg and Marcia both find out about the other wanting the attic, neither intends on giving it up to the other. When Mike and Carol find out about the issue, both parents side with Greg because he's the oldest, which nonetheless doesn't sit well with a brooding and angry Marcia. He relinquishes it to Marcia after hearing her tearful pleas for privacy from her sisters. An annoyed Bobby and Peter, wanting to keep their room to themselves, conspire to frustrate Marcia enough to have her relinquish the room. Marcia initially accuses Greg of the shenanigans, but they soon realize what is happening. Marcia lets him have the room for now, reasoning she will soon have her opportunity to take it back when Greg leaves for college.
