  • Danny gets "alzheimer's disease".

    8.0
    And the spotlight is back on Danny Partridge, the band's money-loving bass player. This is one of those storeis that is silly and yet fun to watch. Danny, a very smart for his age kid, just because a birth certificate is missing starts to believe that he is adopted. What is WRONG with you DANNY? For many episodes you have been the mind behind the success of the band, and now comes up with this crazy idea. Ok, that is very hard for me to believe, but at least, it is portrayed ina funny way. The corrupt and clumsy hospital doctor is my favorite character in this episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • This is revolved around Danny thinking he's not a Partridge because he doesn't have a birth certificate. But in "See Here, Private Partridge" didn't Shirley take Danny's birth certificate to the L.A. Induction Center to bail Danny out?

    • Title: "A Partridge by Any Other Name"

      References a line from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Speaking about Romeo, the man she loves but who bears the name of her family's enemy, Juliet says "a rose by any other name would smell as sweet"; in other words, even if he were not called Romeo, he would still be the man she loves.
