Marcia Gets Creamed is the seventh episode of Season 5 of The Brady Bunch, and the 102nd overall episode of the series. Written by Bill Freedman and Ben Gershman and directed by Peter Baldwin, it first aired 26 October 1973 on ABC.
Marcia, Jan and Peter each get jobs at the local ice cream parlor, each with varying results.
Marcia gets a job at a local ice cream shop. When her boss Mr. Haskell wants to start taking afternoons off, he puts Marcia in charge and on her recommendation hires Peter. Peter continually goofs off, so Marcia fires him and hires Jan as a replacement.
Meanwhile, Alice is trying to lose weight by going on a diet. Mike finds that he needs to lose three pounds himself, which he thinks he can do easily, and goes on the diet along with Alice to show her how easy it is. The ice cream parlor jobs do not help Alice in her process.
Marcia is too busy for her boyfriend Jeff, who stops at the shop with another girl to make Marcia jealous. Angered by the stunt, Marcia squirts them with whipped cream. Mr. Haskell realizes that he is much happier running the shop than he is taking afternoons off, and lets Marcia go, keeping the harder-working Jan. Marcia is at odds with Jan, but at least she now has plenty of time for Jeff. Peter surprises everyone by getting a new job at a pizza parlor.
