Recap / The Brady Bunch S 2 E 15 Will The Real Jan Brady Please Stand Up

Go To

Jan decides that brunettes have more fun when she invests in a wig to make her stand out.

Tropes present in this episode:

  • Abhorrent Admirer: What reason could Peter possibly have for wanting to avoid Margie Whipple?
  • Actor Allusion: Jan's friend Lucy Winters is portrayed by Pamelyn Ferdin; who had voiced Lucy Van Pelt in the 1969 movie A Boy Named Charlie Brown and two other Peanuts specialsnote

  • Be Yourself: Every Brady kid, at one point or another, learns or enforces this lesson, and Jan learns it here, especially after several of her classmates let her know they like her just as she is ... long, blonde hair and all.
  • Shout-Out: Speaking of Marcia Wallace, she sometimes appeared on the game show (as a guest celebrity) on the TV show To Tell the Truth, whose catch phrase, "Will the real (name) please stand up?" is used in this episode's title.

How well does it match the trope?
