Pillow Talk: A Devastating Revelation

October 17, 2010
11:45 p.m.
Scott & Megan's Bedroom

All is quiet, when out of nowhere a voice pipes up in the darkness...

Me:  Did you have fun at lunch today?

Scott:  Yeah.

Me:  How's Jeremy doing?

Scott:  Good.

Me:  Did you talk about anything interesting?

Scott:  We talked about Hawaii.

Me:  Oh yeah?

Scott:  Jeremy said he would never go to Hawaii because of the Brady Bunch.

Me:  What?

Scott:  Something about a tarantula and the Brady Bunch.

Me:  Ah, yes.  The tarantula on Peter's chest when he was sleeping.  That was scary as shite.

Scott:  What?

Me:  The tarantula.  And Greg almost dying in the surfing contest!  Because of that Hawaiian tiki thing.  You gotta be careful of those.

Scott:  I've never seen that episode.

Me:  WHAT!?

Scott:  I only remember one episode of the Brady Bunch.  When the dad got trapped in the building. 

Me:  WHAT!?

Scott:  On the reunion episode.

Me:  WHAT!?

How I married a man that has (i) never seen the Hawaiian episode of the Brady Bunch, and (ii) only remembers a reunion episode of the Brady Bunch, is completely beyond me.

What about Davy Jones, Scott?

What about Marcia Marcia Marcia, Scott?

What about Pork Chops and Applesauce, Scott?

What about When It's Time to Change You've Got to Rearrange, Scott?

I feel like my whole world is falling down around me.  Thank goodness he's at least seen every episode of Saved by the Bell. 

Right, Scott?  RIGHT!?!?  Wait...don't tell me.  I don't want to know.

And the moral of the story is...  Beware of pillow talk, people.  You never know what you might find out about your loved ones.  Also, keep an eye out for tarantulas.  Just in case.

Don't play ball in the house!!?!?! Scott, how can you have made it this far in life?!!?

I'm just going to go on believing he has in fact seen every single one of the Saved By the Bell episodes (excluding the reunions and the College Years - those don't count, they are just a bonus).

Life will go on, Megan - but I'm guessing this realization about your husband was pretty traumatic - there are so many good Brady episodes he has missed out on!!!

Sounds like it is *time to change*...oh, Peter you always were my favorite!

I love this!

Two nights in the last few weeks my husband and I have been laying in bed when we've taken it upon ourselves to remember all the lyrics to the theme song from The Brady Bunch. (Which we have SUCCESSFULLY done!)

And I thought I was the only looney!

This makes two Brady Bunch references for me in two days. Never seen it. Know nothing about it.

Of course, I didn't move to the US until I was 18.

HAHAHAHAHA I haven't seen much of the Brady Bunch.

Jorge and I only have a few TV shows in common: Naruto (he made me watch it), Friends (I made him watch it), Amazing Race, Lost and Fringe.

Cheryl said...

Just when you think you know a person, right? Did he also not see the episode when they're in court and someone drops the book and the guy in the neck brace turns his head so they know he's not hurt? Or the one where Cindy is on a game show and is supposed to picture everyone in their underwear?

We should absolutely to go Hawaii to sort this all out :) Or Kobe Steakhouse

Steph said...

WHAT???!!! No way. I was just thinking about the Shirley Temple episode for some reason, where she and their cousin Oliver plan to become rich and famous and Peter says "What are you going to do, rob a bank?" And whenever I hear my nephew's voice crack, I think about Peter as well.

Off to measure my hubs' Brady knowledge.

Steph said...

Oops, by "she" I mean Cindy, not Shirley Temple.

Jen said...

Yes, pillow talking can be really dangerous. ;)

sara said...

I'm so sorry you're just now finding this out. What else are you going to find out!? That he can't sing the theme songs to Facts of Life?

Scott said...

I remember the whole Marcia, Marcia, Marcia thing. I don’t get the pork chops and applesauce thing and I have no idea what “When it’s time to change you’ve got to rearrange” means. I’m sure it has something to do with folding their ugly @$$ clothes. Can you tell me who won the 1985 World Series? Can ya, CAN YA!!! Brady Bunch, give me a break.

Kmama said...

I loved the Brady Bunch. Like as in, "way too much."

Were you up half the night trying to figure out how he has only seen one episode? I know I would have been! LOL

Liz said...

I don't know the Hawaiian episode either - EEK! {Hides face in fear of beating}

Megan (Best of Fates) said...

I have also never seen an episode of the Brady Bunch. I hope we can still be friends.

I have seen far, far too many episodes of Saved by the Bell.

I haven't seen the reunion episode either. I might have seen a preview for the movie remake!
