The Brady Bunch: The Fender Benders

The Fender Benders is season 3, episode 23 of The Brady Bunch that aired on March 10, 1972. The episode sees Carol get into a minor fender bender, with Marcia, Bobby and Cindy in the car at the time of the accident. It occurred in the supermarket parking lot. According to Carol, she was backing out of her stall. Another car driven by Harry Duggan was backing out of its stall across the aisle, he without looking, and after she had started backing out when he hit her. Since both cars sustained about the same amount of damage – a dented fender apiece – Mr. Duggan and Carol decided to fix their own cars and leave it at that. However, Mr. Duggan later recants, stating that his car requires major repairs and that the accident was Carol’s fault. He threatens to sue unless Carol pays for the damages. The problem for Carol is that Marcia, Bobby and Cindy, as witnesses, can’t agree if Carol’s story is indeed accurate. The four people in Carol’s car have to figure out if Carol was indeed at fault, and if not, how to prove that Mr. Duggan’s increasingly elevated sense of injustice against him is a total lie. H/T >
