    • QUOTES (6)

      • Doctor: Would you like to know why your appendix has to come out?
        Punky: You need the money?
        Doctor: (laughs) You see, your appendix has an acute inflammation.
        Punky: Well, if it's so darn cute, why can't I keep it?

      • Punky: This is gonna be our best vacation ever!
        Cherie: Yeah! Two weeks of Lake Geneva. Swimming. Sunning. Boys!
        Punky: Can't you just see us down at the lake, ordering sodas and lounging with the babes?
        Cherie: Yeah. Babe lounging! The perfect vacation activity. The only problem is, how are we gonna keep your dad and my grandma out of our hair?
        Punky: They won't want to hang out in the sun. At their age, they shrivel.
        Cherie: I don't know. My grandma bought a brand-new bikini.
        Punky: She did?
        Cherie: Sequins on leopard skin.
        Punky: How does she look in it?
        Cherie: Let's put it this way. I'm thinking of changing my name.

      • Henry: Something wrong?
        Punky: No, just a cramp.
        Henry: Where?
        Punky: (pauses, makes something up) In my hand, but it's fine now.
        Henry: Oh, okay then. I'll get you a drink, but right after that, straight to bed. Okay? (Punky groans) Punky, is something wrong with your stomach?
        Punky: Nah, I just got this little nothing of a pain.
        Henry: How long have you had this "little nothing"?
        Punky: Well, I felt a little sick today, and yesterday.
        Henry: I'm calling Dr. Evans.
        Punky: No, it'll ruin our trip!
        Henry: Maybe not. We'll stop and see him before we drive to the lake.
        Punky: Wait, Henry! There's been a miracle, really. I feel totally great!
        Henry: Save it.

      • Nancy: Can I get you anything, Mr. Warnimont?
        Henry: I could use a younger body.
        Nancy: Sorry, there's a waiting list for those.

      • Nancy: You're scheduled for surgery this morning is at 11:00.
        Punky: How's my pulse?
        Nancy: Fine until I said the word "surgery".

      • Betty: This isn't like you, Punky. You're always so brave.
        Punky: I'm not afraid of anything I can see, but I'm gonna be asleep during the operation.
        Betty: Well, would you rather be awake?
