When Shirley hears it is for the Point Loomis Air Force Base, she agrees to do it. The is one hitch, however. The Partridges must back up Stillman Kelly's daughter, Dora, 18 years old and beautiful...but can't sing a note on key. She does a number and each member of the family winces, except Keith, who's hopelessly smitten with her loveliness and her music ability. Later, Shirley tries to explain to Keith that Dora's singing very bad, but he won't believe her. She tells him to listen carefully at the next rehearsal; he is late and misses it. The Partridges simply can't tell her the truth. Keith walks Dora home, and when he returns, they play a tape for him. The singing is so rotten that he quickly turns it off. They break it to him...the voice was Dora's. Shocked, Keith promises he will tell her. He comes back later and tells them instead that he and Dora are going steady. Shirley decides she'll have to tell Stillman. After listening to him describe how he taught his daughter every (wrong) note she knows, Shirley just can't tell him the facts. The Partridges turn on Reuben next...he assures them he will do what he can. On the night of the performance, Dora is introduced. As she comes on stage, a roar of cheers and applause from the servicemen drowns out her song.

|3||Closed CaptioningVideoA Man Called Snake||In a hippie fan magazine interview, Keith has blabbed too much about the family, unsettling all of them, especially Laurie. He has said she had a crush on a Harry Murphy, but Laurie insists it was a Butch Murphy and it was years ago. A motorcycle roars outside, the bell rings and the door is opened to reveal a burly young man in Levis, dirty white T-shirt, boots, and with an earring in one ear. He announces he is Harry "Snake" Murphy and is looking for the chick who is crazy about him. When Laurie explains the mistake, Snake laughs and admits he came on a dare. If Laurie will give him her autograph - on his bare chest - he will shove off. Reuben comes in carrying a twisted wire lawn-flamingo which he says some idiot had run over with a motorcycle, but when he spots Snake he drops that line and gushes about the beautiful machine he had seen on the front lawn. In the following weeks, Snake roars his motorbike right in and out of Laurie's life. She refuses to talk with him, but during a rehearsal of the family's latest number, "Listen to the Sound," Shirley sees that Laurie's mind is far, far away and suggests she and Snake should have a talk. Laurie returns from the talk saying Snake is very sensitive, has written a poem about her, and she has invited him to the school prom. An uneasy family watches Laurie and Snake leave for the dance. Snake has abandoned his usual weird outfit and is wearing normal clothes, but they are obviously far out-dated and no longer fit. When the couple returns to a still apprehensive family, they are a bit disheveled. Snake has been taunted by two varsity football players and has licked them both, but one of his stray punches floored Laurie. However, they have decided their two worlds do not mix. He gives Laurie his earring, and they call it quits. Several weeks later, a package arrives for Laurie. It contains an almost new wire lawn-flamingo and a sweetish poem that, among other things, warns Laurie that the flamingo is "hot."||25:11||$0.99||View in iTunes|

|6||Closed CaptioningVideoWhatever Happened to Moby Dick?||Danny comes up with an idea for crashing in on the ecology movement...the Partridges should get a whale to be their lead singer.

He said that any profits Marineland receives will go to the New York Zoological Society, where they are working to save whales. Shirley says that her family will devote her profits to the whale too. At the recording session, E.J. Flicker walks in and claims the whale belongs to him since he was the one who alerted Marineland four years ago to get the whale out of his inlet. He wants 50 percent. Shirley gets an idea - they will cut the record at Marineland and invite the press and Mr. Flicker. She sets everything up with Mr. Blanchard of ABC News, who shames Flicker in front of thousands of people into donating his 50 percent to the Zoological Society.||24:51||$0.99||View in iTunes|

So he goes into his "trance routine" and tells the boys that a family disaster is impending unless they can have $156 in his hands by that Friday, which happens to be the day of the next Partridge concert. Danny and Keith try everything - including a kissing booth - to raise the money. They even try asking everyone, Reuben included, for a loan without telling them why. When everything fails, they pretend, unsuccessfully, to be sick, hoping to avoid the predicted disaster by not showing up for the concert. Finally, Shirley puts the pieces together and finds out the reason for their strange behavior. When Shirley confronts Max, he shamefully admits that he only wanted to borrow the money to save his bakery. So Shirley and the kids decide to help him out by getting him on the bill with them to play their next concert.||25:01||$0.99||View in iTunes|

Call it "Best Episodes Ever!"...
Comic Book Guy (A character from "The Simpson") said it best. These are the best episodes from season 2. From Laurie dating "The Meathead" in "A Man Called Snake", to Danny's schemes (hamsters, using a killer whale in a act to save said whale [take a good look at Shirley Jones' "Whale Song" music video worthy of an MTV video and see why that at the time whales becoming an endangered speices], an two-part article becoming worthy of not only [As Shirley Partridge would say] "A two-part punishment.", but inspired by todays tabloids) From Shirley's serenading "My Best Girl" to their parents, to a "Mission: Impossible" reinactment by "breaking and entering", with dire consequences. Guest stars including a pre-"Little House" Richard Bull, WKRP's Gordon Jump (his second), Meredith "Elise Keaton" Baxter, Bert Convy, Howard Cosell (of "The Alphabet Network"'s sports fame), and two of Hanna-Barbera's best voice performers: George O'Hanlon (A.K.A. George Jetson) and Frank Welker (A.K.A. Freddy Jones and Don Messick's successor to "Scooby-Doo"). And of course the songs!!!!
