The Partridge Family s01e04
Titre original : See Here, Private Partridge
The Partridge family are off to record their first album. Just as they are about to leave, Tracy runs up with a letter in her hand â€“ a letter from the U.S. Government.
To the total surprise of everyone, ten year old Danny has been drafted!
Reuben Kincaid says he will stay behind to clear up the matter and join the family soon. On the bus, the other kids tease Danny about going into the army but he has taken it very seriously. He fantasizes himself in uniform performing heroic deeds.
The Partridges are in the recording studio listening to the final tape playback of their album when Reuben enters with the bad news. He was unable to get Danny off the hook. Furious â€“ and armed just with Danny's birth certificate â€“ Shirley makes the trip to L.A. Induction Center alone.
Shirley is sent from one officer to another and no one will take the time to help her. Still fuming, she decides she will show them... she will bring Danny there and have him go through induction.
Danny says a tearful goodbye
