    • Henry: (reading Punky's "resume" when she wants a job at his restaurant) Let's see. Education: fifth grade. Previous sales experience: five years?
      Punky: I've been selling school candy bars since kindergarten.
      Henry: I know. I bought them all.

    • Cherie: I can't wait to get to Camp Kookalooky!
      Margaux: Kookalooky? What does that mean?
      Cherie: It's an Indian word. It means "Don't forget to write your name on your underwear".

    • Henry: (serving Punky and her friends at his restaurant) Here's our Summer Special. Punky Pizza. Pepperoni, sausage, and M&M's.
      Punky: My idea! Great, huh? How many of these have you sold today?
      Henry: Counting this?
      Punky: Yeah.
      Henry: One.

    • Punky: Henry, you named it Punky's Place! Don't you think a Punky should work here?
      Henry: I may not be easy to work for.
      Punky: So? You're not easy to live with, either!
      Henry: And I only pay minimum.
      Punky: I'm used to that. You know what my allowance is.

    • Henry: Punky, you and me working here....it's not working here.
      Punky: Are you saying I'm fired?
      Henry: Just call it an early retirement.

    • Henry: See? That's Punky's fault!
      Punky: A classy place would have cloth napkins!

    • Henry: What posessed you to put an entire frozen chicken in my blender?
      Punky: The lady ordered a cold chicken salad!

    • Punky: How's this going to look in the school newspaper: "Punky Fired From Punky's Place!"

    • Henry: Can we please stop talking through the dog?
      Punky: Maybe we should just stop talking.
