The Brady Bunch Episode 18 “The Subject Was Noses”
IMDb link to episode
Marcia Brady is asked out on a date with a friend named Charlie but then later on gets asked out on a date by the most popular football player Doug so she makes an excuse to break the date with Charlie. She kinda feels guilty but the excitement for her date with Doug helps her move forward.
Her younger step bros, Bobby and Peter are playing football in the yard when the infamous “Oh my nose!” scene occurs with the ball thrown by Peter hits Marcia square on the nose. Doug see Marcia with the swollen nose and makes an excuse to break off their date and Marcia feels terrible about being on the receiving end of the lie.
Near the end, Marcia confesses to Charlie about the lie and promises to go on another date, when Doug sees her nose has healed, his plans change too and he asks her out again, which she turns down.
I remember this episode when I was a kid, and while it was kinda funny back then, for this game Idea I wanted to not do the typical “Hit Marcia with a football in the face” game. I wanted to try a completely different take on this and strongly base it off of the title.
Idea: What if the germs on Peters hands created a society on the planet sized football, which was spiraling towards Marcia nose since this was “The Subject Was Noses” after all and we play the last day or days before they all die by crashing into Marcia’s nose.
