WoW! How'd That Get By The Censor?
i think all fans of The Partridge Family can agree that it is a wholesome family show but i was watching 2 Eps "The Diplomat" & "Heartbreak Keith" that have dialogue that made me giggle & think 'wow! how'd that get by the censor?'.
On The Diplomat episode the kids are concerned about their mom going on a date with a diplomat who's perceived by the press [and the kids] as a playboy. Shirley reassures them that she & the diplo [played by Richard Mulligan] met once, years ago at a political rally, and she shook his hand when they were introduced---nothing more. Keith responds with the line "Mom, a guy doesn't ask a girl out just because she has a firm grip."
On the "Heartbreak Keith" Ep Keith is in love with his teacher, a slightly older & unbeknownst to him married woman. When Danny discovers Keith's crush he teases him about not having declared his feelings "You don't even have the nerve to ask the girl out for a taco"
i'll let you know if i stumble across any more great Partridge Family double entendres.
