Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Partridge kids are upset that mom Shirley (Shirley Jones) has apparently fallen in love with her old friend Larry Metcalf (John McMartin). Having concluded that Larry is nothing more than a "giggle-o", the youngsters enlist the aid of Reuben (Dave Madden) to break up the supposed romance. The plot thickens when Larry is seen keeping company with a much younger woman, played by future "Charlie's Angel" Jaclyn Smith. Song: "I Really Want to Know You."
