Short Summary

The Bradys were invited to spend a Sunday afternoon on Mr. Phillips' boat - that is, if Cindy and Carol can get over tonsillitis and Carol can keep her big mouth shut!

Summary

Everyone in the Brady household is excited by the invitation from Mike's boss, Mr. Phillips, to spend the day on his sailboat deep sea fishing, everyone that is except for seasick-prone Alice. That trip, however, is threatened by Cindy, who seems to be coming down with a cold. After being examined by Dr. Howard, their family doctor, Cindy is diagnosed with a case of tonsillitis. Dr. Howard recommends that Cindy be admitted into the hospital the day of the fishing trip to have her tonsils removed.

Dr. Howard also has a second unexpected diagnosis: Carol, too, should be admitted to the hospital at the same time to have her tonsils removed, because hers are even more inflamed than Cindy's. Beyond the issue of the minor surgery for the eldest and youngest of the Brady women, the family is excited that Mr. Phillips is willing to change the date of the sailing trip to the following weekend, when Carol and Cindy should have fully recovered. But even that sailing trip is threatened by Carol, who isn't supposed to speak post-surgery, but who has some choice words to utter. The confusion is later resolved and the family goes on the trip.
