From the old site. Feel free to add some more!

----------------------

Painting naked ladies on my garage door gets the neighbors in an uproar!!

One should always have a can opener when they go camping

Mrs. Monahan down the street always has a supply of freshly baked brownies on hand.

Always keep an eye on the pediatrician.

You should never show a film at Muldoon's point.

If you have two hamsters and you don't have a record to sell, keep them separated at all times.

If you write bad publicity about your family, you will lose all your money to the Salvation Army.

If you are really nice to the right drifter, you'll get a million dollars:

If you let your corny old Grandpa sing with the group, he won't be nearly as embarrassing as you think.

If you smell like a skunk, you'll get all the elevators to yourself.

If you want to sell a house, then change your mind, get the windows to stick & the plumbing to go crazy!

If you are a Partridge and you die, no one will ever mention you again.

Breaking into the Partridge's home or garage is a good way to make friends with them.

"Censorship is not the path to equal rights"

If you want to get lucky, play Bolero

Never give your mom a brooch that you found lying in the road.

Braces get decent radio reception

"When you get something for nothing you just don't appreciate as much as when you have to work for it yourself"

If the new next door neighbor is a little kid w/a mop-top and impish grin who sings "Say Hey Willie" - MOVE!

When a man is in love with you, he thinks you can sing, when in reality, you sound like fingernails on a chalkboard.

If you have dinner with the Partridges, bring pickles, since theirs have a tendency to disappear.

Polish weddings always have the best food.

If you ever go camping with Keith, Danny, & Reuben, give them each a list of what they should bring.

If you go camping with Laurie & Shirley, you've nothing to worry about.

At some point in life, your son may spontaneously change from being dark-haired and vague, to blond-haired and good-natured. This is not usually a bad thing.

Don't take any gigs over the Christmas holidays...unless you don't mind being... >*strum!*< "Stuck in this lonely town for Christmas"

If you ever have to pretend to be Southern when you're not, make sure everyone who should know what's going on, does.

If you ever have to steal the hair from Keith's head, take it from the back, but way underneath; if you take it from the top, he'll notice right away.

Certain brown diamond-patterned fabrics belong as couches, not as stage costumes.

If you need some fast cash, say for a special birthday present for Mom, it's good to have a cute older brother whose belongings you can sell to his fans.

If you want to get a date with either Keith or Laurie, it's good to have an unusual name, like Naomi Ledbetter or Greeley Winger.

The most inconspicuous vehicle for tailing someone is a multi-colored bus. It also makes a great datemobile.

I learned that if there is a hand print in Keith's mashed potatoes, it belongs to Tracy.

When your act gets stage fright, have them close their eyes and pretend they're back in the garage. It works MUCH better than pretending the audience is in their underwear.

AND--when your eyes are closed you see nothing, and you can't be afraid of a nothing.

When you're act gets their demo done, always carry it with you-ready to play aloud- and follow label reps with it EVERYWHERE-especially the bathroom. Things always sound better in the bathroom.

Teenage girls travel in packs and suddenly materialize when cute shaggy haired singers leave the house.

You can have a only a guitar, bass, organ, drums and tambourine, yet somehow sound like you have brass instruments in your band.

"You can fool some of the people some of the time. But you can fool Keith Partridge ALL of the time!"

Kidnapping a princess can cause an international incident

Claiming "I'm Mother of the Year!" can get you out of a speeding ticket.

It's good to pack eggs at the bottom of the bag.

A deal's a deal

"Women are people"

If I ever go looking for my heart's desire, I should look no further than my own San Pueblo. Because if it's not there, then I never really lost
it to begin with. Oh, and Ruby -- there's no place like San Pueblo!!

If you have a grandfather that looks like Ray Bolger, a few years later, he'll look like Jackie Coogan.

A toaster always makes the perfect gift :D

When spying on someone, drive a multicoloured bus, that way nobody will ever notice you Rolling Eyes
