"Getting Greg's Goat"
Peter and the Wolf is the fifth episode of Season 5 of The Brady Bunch, and the 100th overall episode of the series. Written by Tam Spiva and directed by Leslie H. Martinson, it first aired 12 October 1973 on ABC.
Greg makes Peter pretend to be older so they can go on a double date.
Mike and Carol are boning up on their Spanish in preparation for a business dinner with the Calderons, a client and his wife from Mexico City, Señora Calderon specifically who Mike is uncertain if she understands or speaks English. Meanwhile, Greg has a much coveted date with Sandra Martin. Their date is threatened when Sandra announces that her eighteen-year-old cousin Linda is visiting from out of town. Sandra won't leave her cousin alone while she's in town. Greg vows to get Linda a date for the evening so that they can make it a foursome.
However, Sandra has not seen Linda in six years. Her description of her cousin with "ponytail and braces" makes the rounds to all of Greg's friends before he can even ask them to be Linda's date. Greg's buddies run for the exits, and he is unable to find anyone who will agree to be Linda's date. When Peter boasts about how old he is now, Greg believes he's found his fourth. Peter is to masquerade as Greg's friend "Phil Packer" from another high school. Peter deepens his voice, dons a fake mustache, and attends a crash session of the Greg Brady class on how to act older. However, when Linda appears, everyone is surprised to see she's gorgeous.
After the date, Peter mistakenly believes that he is now God's gift to the young adult woman. Linda and Sandra discover Greg's ruse but do not let on, and hatch a plan of revenge at a pizza parlor. Carol and Mike follow Jan and Marcia's recommendations for great pizza and entertaining the client and his wife there too. Sandra and Linda's revenge almost jeopardizes Mike's deal.
