To Move or Not to Move is the 23rd episode of The Brady Bunch TV series, and also the 23rd overall episode in the series. Written by Paul West and directed by Oscar Rudolph, the episode premiered on ABC-TV, airing on March 6, 1970.
Mike considers selling the Bradys' undersized house when the children complain about a lack of room. However, the kids have second thoughts and pretend to be ghosts, in order to scare off would-be buyers. The kids' efforts succeed, while Mike realizes how much the kids like the current home, even with the lack of space.
The kids are at each others' throats. The basic cause of the problem is that the house is seemingly too small with six kids sharing two bedrooms and one bathroom, two of the three doors to which are often locked when the bathroom isn't in use. Mike and Carol have previously talked about buying a larger house, but they haven't seen one they either both like or can afford. That changes when Mike places an offer on a house they have previously admired that has just come on the market.
At the same time, strange noises seem to be emanating from their own house. Mike, who hasn't been around when the noises are happening, suspects that it is just the house settling. Carol, Alice and the kids, all frightened, aren't too sure about Mike's assessment as some of the noises sound otherworldly. Carol just hopes that the noises subside when Mr. Grossman, their realtor, brings by Mrs. Hunsaker, the first prospective buyer of their house.
