"Till the one day when the lady met this fellow and they knew that it was much more than a hunch that this group must somehow form a family
that's the way we all became the Brady bunch." The Brady bunch is the iconic blended family.

Richie's in love with his adopted sister Margot, Etheline leaves Royal for their long-time accountant, and the synchronized red track suits that Chas and his two sons wear.
