"Here's the story… through a misunderstanding, the Brady kids overhear a loud argument between their usually perfectly-in-love parents," according to press notes. "The kids think their parents might be heading for a divorce and dig in to raise money to obtain marriage counseling for their woe stricken parents. Greg operates a car service; Marcia dates for money; Peter and Jan put on magic shows; and Bobby and Cindy look for money in couches. Did you ever imagine what the Brady's might look like in a holding cell at the local police station? Somehow even Alice gets in some legal trouble for fraud."
