Marcia Brady & ....Michael Jackson?

OK, if you are not a Brady Bunch or Michael Jackson fan (and if you're not, you should be!) you may not have heard that Maureen McCormick (Marcia) just came out with a book about her time on the Brady Bunch.

One of the more interesting disclosures in the book is that Marcia had a relationship with the Great One himself.

Now, if you are familiar with Brady Bunch history, you will know that Marcia had crushes on both Davy Jones and Desi Arnaz Jr. So the question is:

Why were we deprived of a Brady Bunch episode centering on Marcia & Michael? I mean how great would that have been - MJ coming over, meeting Mr. & Mrs. Brady, having some of Alice's cooking, perhaps even double dating with Sam and Alice going bowling? Greg getting MJ's take on Johnny Bravo? Or better yet, Micheal choreographing moves for "Sunshine Day"?
On a related note, Sherwood Schwartz and the other writers have to be the some of the most ingenious showbiz has ever seen. The other night, we were watching an episode where Bobby find a wallet in a vacant lot with $1,100 dollars in it. When the owner finally comes to the Brady home to retrieve his wallet, we are told his name is "Mr. Stoner" That is absolutely priceless!
