More "Brady Bunch" memories - Davy Jones!

Girl, look what you’ve done to me … me and my whole world..
Who can forget "The Brady Bunch" episode where Marcia tells her classmates that she could get Davy Jones of The Monkees to sing at their prom, because he promised her in a letter he would be glad to help her if ever he was in town. (Marcia’s president of his Fillmore Junior High fan club.)
And, of course, Davy’s in town, and there’s no entertainment for Marcia’s prom.
So, Marcia tries to track the Monkee down, and finally finds out, with her brother Greg’s help, that he’s at a recording studio. When she gets there, Davy overhears on the studio microphone Marcia telling his manager about the pickle she’s in. But, the manager won’t let Marcia in to talk to Davy.
But, that doesn’t stop a Monkee.
Back at home, Marcia is about to admit defeat when the doorbell rings. And it’s …
Avon calling.
Nah, I’m just messin’ with you. You guessed it (of course, you’ve seen the episode a million times) Davy Jones! And he agrees to sing at Marcia’s prom. Except for one little problem … he doesn’t have a date. Of course, Marcia quickly solves that problem and agrees to be Davy’s date, and even gives him a kiss on the cheek. And one on the flip side, too.
You can check out this clip of Davy singing and Marcia begging the agent for him (Davy, not the agent) to sing at her prom on YouTube at
