- Trivia & Quotes
Ted: Now, in case I'm delayed, start dinner without me.
Joan : I'm too upset to eat.
Jamie: I'm never that upset.
Harriet: (standing at the door as Ted opens it) Hi, everybody!
Jamie: I just lost my appetite.
Jamie: (about Vicki) Can you fix her, Dad?
Ted: I think there's some sort of damage to the internal circuits.
Jamie: That figures. Harriet can even drive a robot crazy.
Ted: I just don't have the equipment to fix her here but there's hardly anybody at the plant on Saturdays. I can take her apart here, sneak her into my office and fix her there.
Joan: Take her apart? Our adorable child?
Jamie: Mom, don't think of her as a child, think of her as Harriet.
Joan: (thinks for a moment) Take her apart.
Ted: (walks in with the suitcase) Hi there.
Joan : Hi.
Ted: Well, I did it. Vicki's tapes are erased and she's back to her old self, again.
Joan: (sighs in relief) Oh, great. Is she um...?(points to the suitcase)
Ted: Yes, she's uh...(shakes the suitcase)
Joan: (somewhat horrified) Oh, Ted.
Ted: (chuckles) Come on, honey. I walked into the factory, alone. I couldn't very well walk out with a whole little girl.
Harriet: (To Vicki) This is my room. It's pretty neat, huh?
Vicki: Pretty neat.
Harriet: There's my stuffed animal collection. Do you have one?
Vicki: No, I have never stuffed an animal
Harriet: (Giggles and claps her hands 3x) You're funny!
Vicki: (Laughs and claps her hands 4x) I'm funny!
Harriet: Every girl should have stuffed animals. And here's my favorite doll, Baby Puddle. If you squeeze it hard, that what it does, makes a puddle! What's your favorite doll?
Vicki: I don't have a doll.
Harriet: You don't! You're deprived. A little girl without a doll is like a grown woman without a mink. Why don't you just buy a doll with the allowance they give you?
Vicki: They don't give me an allownace.
Harriet: Oh I can't believe this, do you know what your problem is? You don't know how to ask for things.
Bonnie: Harriet, we'll have to leave soon for your appointment with the orthodontist.
Harriet: That's all I need, braces on top of freckles! I'll never get married!
Bonnie: I don't know why we bother with the orthodontist anyway. Pratically half your teeth have fallen out. Oh and straighten up your room before we go.
Harriet: I'll do it later mom.
Bonnie: No, no, no, no, no! Now.
Bonnie: I'll give you fifty cents.
Bonnie: That's my good little spoiled brat!
Harriet: (To Vicki) See how easy that was. Fifty cents here, fifty cents there. I plan to retire before I reach high school.
