Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore
Eenie, Meenie, Mommy, Daddy is the third episode of The Brady Bunch TV series, and the third overall episode in the series. Written by Joanna Lee and directed by John Rich, the episode premiered 10 October 1969 on ABC-TV.
Cindy is very excited at the thought of her entire family watching her starring in the school play The Frog Prince as the fairy princess, but later she is heartbroken when she discovers that she can only bring one parent, and she has much difficulty picking between Mike and Carol.
Cindy is excited when she is chosen to play the lead, the Fairy Princess, in her school's production. Her family is as excited for Cindy as they help her learn her lines, make her costume and props, and even feel what it's going to be like to "fly" while hanging on wires. They are all as excited to be able to see Cindy in the play as Cindy is excited to have the largest cheering section with her large family in attendance. But Cindy's excitement changes when she learns that because of the large number of people involved in the production and the relatively small auditorium, each cast member is only issued one ticket.
It's bad enough that her siblings and Alice can't attend, but she doesn't know how to choose between her parents. Her mother has attended everything she's ever been involved with and is her biggest booster, but she doesn't want to make her new father feel excluded. While Cindy does the only thing she knows how to solve the problem, Alice, the only adult in the family who knows what's going on, and eventually Mike think Cindy needs a little help in figuring out this problem.
