Getting Greg's Goat

Aired Unknown Oct 19, 1973 on ABC



  • Trivia

    • In the scene where the girls are going upstairs just as Peter and Bobby are going downstairs going after Raquel, you can easily here some kind of clicker to get the goat to come downstairs. It's NOT hard to miss that sound.

    • This episode aired on Robert Reed's 41st birthday.

    • In this episode, Coolidge High is mentioned. Other episodes mentioned are Fairview High and Tower High, in addition to their own, Westdale.

    • In the last scene where Alice and Carol are cleaning Greg's room, there is a close-up of the vacuum cleaner which is supposed to be running. Notice how the bag is limp, not full of air as it should be. When Alice turns it off, the bag doesn't change at all. Obviously the vacuum cleaner is not running at all and the vacuum sound was dubbed in.

  • Quotes

    • Mr Binkley: (pronouncing Greg's punishment for stealing Raquel) I think a 5000-word essay on the evils of mascot stealing is in order.
      Greg: Five thousand words?
      Carol: Greg, I think Mr Binkley is being very generous.
      Greg: (hastily) Oh yes, very generous. Thank you sir.
      MIke: (a bit later, when Greg is sent off to get Raquel to return her) Boy, times sure have changed. I did the same thing when I was a kid and I got suspended for a week.
      Mr Binkley: I was suspended for an entire month!

    • Mr Binkley: (discovers Greg has the Coolidge mascot, which has caused chaos in Mike and Carol's bedroom) I hope you have a good explanation for this, Gregory.
      Greg: I hope so too.
      Mr Binkley: But I doubt it.
      Greg: I doubt it too.

    • Greg: (seeing what Raquel has just eaten) Raquel, not my American history report! You've just eaten the Boston Tea Party. (checks what else she has eaten) Not my tennis shoe! What are you planning for dessert, my mattress?

    • (Bobby and Peter discovering the goat in Greg's room) Peter: That's Coolidge High School's mascot. Greg must've been one of the guys to lift it off. Bobby: Wow, Greg's gonna befamous. Peter: You mean "expelled".

  • Notes

    • This is the first episode to show their walk-in linen closet from their upstairs hall where Bobby was about to get a towel and where Bobby, Peter, Alice and Mike hear Greg's voice from the attic through the wall vent.

    • In his book "Growing Up Brady", Barry Williams proclaimed the outfit Robert Reed wore during most of this episode "Reed's worst ever", and "ugly even by 70's standards".

    • Sandra Gould, who appropriately enough plays the second Gladys Kravitz on Bewitched when Alice Pearce died of cancer.
