"You Can't Win Them All"
You're Never Too Old was the 20th episode of Season 4 of the The Brady Bunch TV series, also the 93rd overall episode in the series. Written by Ben Gersham and Bill Freedman, the episode, which was directed by Bruce Bilson, originally aired on ABC-TV on March 9, 1973.
The kids try to set up their maternal great-grandmother, Grandma Connie Hutchins (Florence Henderson), and paternal great-grandfather, Grandpa Hank Brady (Robert Reed), after the two come for a visit. While Grandma is a real "swinger", Grandpa is a real "stick in the mud". After some problems, Grandma Hutchins finally wins over Grandpa Brady, and the two elope in Las Vegas.
Carol's Kentucky grandmother, Connie Hutchins, who is young in spirit and body and who has a modern sensibility, decides at the last minute to make a visit. It is bad timing if only because Mike and Carol have previous engagements, leaving Grandma largely with the kids. But Marcia and Jan in particular think they have a better way for their great-grandmother to spend their time while in town. As Great-grandma has never remarried, the girls think that they have the perfect person with who she should meet and fall in love with: their great-grandfather, retired judge Henry Brady. Although their meeting starts off cordially enough, Great-grandma and Great-grandpa quickly have a falling out, largely because they are diametrically opposites: Great-grandpa is conservative and a traditionalist, who believes that spouting Latin is a good time. Despite facing this setback, Marcia and Jan are determined to prove that opposites truly do attract.
