The Partridge Family s02e17
Titre original : Waiting for Bolero
Keith is envious of his friend Archie, who seems to be enjoying an independent bachelor life with his own apartment and all the trimmings. Naturally, Keith wouldn't mind that kind of life. So, he campaigns for permission to move out of the house saying that he needs the solitude to be able to write songs for the group.
Shirley's answer is an emphatic NO! Keith persists and Shirley finally allows him to take a room next door where she can still keep an eye on him. Instead of paying rent Keith has to do some """"light"""" gardening.
Exhausted from the """"light"""" gardening, Keith has no time to enjoy his independence, let alone write songs. However, he doesn't want to admit defeat so soon. With Danny smuggling him peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and clean shirts, Keith manages for a short while.
The fun bachelor life eventually gets to Keith and he admits to Shirley that living alone is not at all what he expected. He is happy to come back home.
