Did You Watch 'The Brady Bunch' Growing Up? See Some of Alice's Top Moments Here

Whether you grew up watching "The Brady Bunch," or this is the first you're hearing of actress Ann B. Davis, there's no denying she was beloved as housekeeper Alice. Watch some top moments below. 

_______________

She was the middle square, the character that held the rest of the Brady's together.

Actress Ann B. Davis, who played housekeeper Alice Nelson on "The Brady Bunch" from 1969-1974, has died at 88.

Whether you laughed because of her impeccable comic timing or her physicality as she fell in a dunk tank – many people have their favorite 'Alice' moments.

* Here are a few that will make you smile:

THAT TIME ALICE FELL INTO A "FAR OUT" DUNK TANK: 

Alice has to retrieve a cloth at the top of a dunk tank that's in the backyard. She manages to get herself up there – getting down is the problem.

 

WHEN SHE LEARNED TO SKI IN THE BACKYARD: 

After it doesn't go so well, Bobby Brady says, "she'll need two more lessons."  Cindy Brady responds: "Maybe three."

 

HOW'S SHE GONNA ANSWER THAT PHONE? 

After Jan wraps Alice up with a giant ace bandage, the housekeeper struggles to answer the phone.

Alice to Jan right before: "Will you do me a favor, the next time you ask me to volunteer for something, immobilize my big mouth before I can answer."

 

WHEN SHE TRIES TO LEAVE THE FAMILY: 

Alice tells Mr. and Mrs. Brady she needs to leave the family to go take care of her sick aunt in Seattle.

Though she's eventually caught in her lie:

Alice: I'll plan to leave tomorrow night. Take the plane south.

Mr. Brady: South? To Seattle?

Alice: Oh. Well. That's the way that the planes go. I mean, they head south when they take off, before they turn around and go north.

 

AND HER CAMEO IN THE 1995 "BRADY BUNCH" MOVIE: 

In the movie, Jan runs away from home and Davis plays a truck driver who her up. She tells the hitchhiker:

"I can't help thinking 'what might have been if I married young – had a family, three boys, three girls.' Then a little voice says 'are you kidding, they'd probably just treat you like a maid!'"
