Episode Summary

Bye Bye, My
Punky's treasured baby doll, which she has fondly named "My," loses its head for the umpteenth time, and after promising to fix it for her, Henry decides that buying her some new toys is a better option, and he makes the mistake of throwing My in the garbage. She is, of course, distraught by this, but Henry believes that she'll get over it--that is, until he learns why the doll was so important to her in the first place.moreless

    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • The look on Henry's face after Punky confessed to throwing out his favorite pipe (as revenge for Henry throwing out My earlier...a fantasy of many kids who've had a beloved old toy thrown away) is priceless, and he sounded dazed when he forgave Punky for it.

    • QUOTES (12)

      • Betty: Oh, hi, Henry!
        Henry: Hello, Mrs. Johnson. Thank you for watching Punky for me; I'm sorry I woke you up.
        Betty: Oh, I wasn't asleep. I was reading this book. It says here to keep your eyes shut as much as possible. That way, they last longer!

      • Principal Miller: What did Mr. Henry do?
        Punky: He took my doll and threw her down the trash chute!
        Principal Miller: (gasps, turns to Henry) You threw away her favorite doll?!?!?
        Henry: No! Well, yes.....but let me explain.
        Principal Miller: I think I've heard quite enough!
        Henry: But, Principal Miller, who will take your school pictures?
        Principal Miller: Joe Kluger. He may be cranky, but at least he's never snuffed a doll!

      • Betty: Henry, that doll is a mess. Why don't you buy Punky some new toys?
        Henry: I did. I just bought her a brand-new dictionary.
        Betty: And all the hours she spent playing with it....

      • Henry: Well, maybe I can buy Punky a new doll.
        Betty: Oh, she'd love it, Henry. And I'd be amazed.
        Henry: Why's that?
        Betty: Because you're the cheapest man I know! The last time you took a dollar bill out of your wallet, it crumbled when it hit the light!

      • Punky: Henry, the only doll I want is lying somewhere in a heap of garbage. Her head's on one side, her body's on the other, and what's in-between? Grunge and gunk. You just don't understand. My was very important to me. And no one can ever replace her.

      • Punky: Henry, will you fix My just one more time? Please?
        Henry: I don't have time tonight. Maybe next week.
        Punky: Henry, how would you like it if your head fell off and the doctor said "Sorry, I don't have time to put it on right now, maybe next week"?

      • Henry: Punky, this doll has had it. She's been to the dolly hospital, she's had four major head glues...I think it's time to pull the plug and send her to the dolly funeral home.
        Punky: Don't say that, you'll hurt her feelings.
        Henry: The doll has no head! Hurt feelings are the least of its problems!

      • Punky: I'm trying to find My!
        Henry: Your what?
        Punky: Not my what, my My!
        Henry: Oh, your doll. Punky, couldn't you give your doll a more decent name?
        Punky: She does have a decent name. Her name is My.
        Henry: My is not a name. Betsy Wetsy is a name!

      • Punky: Henry?
        Henry: Yes?
        Punky: I just hope you'll forgive me.
        Henry: For what, dear?
        Punky: For throwing your favorite pipe down the trash chute.

      • Henry: Punky, I never meant to hurt you. I'm sorry I threw away your doll. If I could undo it, I would but I can't. I just hope that someday you'll forgive me.
        Punky: Henry.
        Henry: Yes?
        Punky: I forgive you.

      • Henry: Why's that beat up old doll so important to you?!
        Punky: 'Cause my Mom gave her to me!
        Henry: Oh.
        Punky: Now my Mom's gone. So is My.

      • Henry: I was looking for your doll.
        Punky: You were?
        Henry: And I found it.
        Punky: You did?
        Henry: I sure did. But her head was still loose, so I took her to the finest dolly plastic surgeon in the world, you know the one that fixed up Ken and Barbie after they had their yachting accident?
