      • Punky: Hi, Henry. You still working on your bills?
        Henry: Oh, yes. We've overextended again this month. We've got to start economizing. After all...
        Punky and Henry: ...money doesn't grow on trees.
        Henry: We could save quite a bit if we just...
        Punky and Henry: ...tighten our belts and cut a few corners.
        Henry: Punky, this is serious. When I was your age...
        Punky and Henry: ...children knew the value of a dollar.

      • Betty: (to Punky and Cherie) Well, girls, that's terrific! You guys earned your half, so we'll pay the other half. That was the deal, right Henry?
        Henry: My ice cream's melting. (rushes into kitchen, Betty follows him)
        Betty: Henry, your ice cream is as hard as your head. You just don't want to own up to the deal you made with those girls.
        Henry: That's not fair. The only reason I made the deal in the first place was because I never thought they'd pull it off.
        Betty: Well, they did. They set a goal and reached it. I'll really proud of them.
        Henry: Want to be even more proud? Then pay for both of them.
        Betty: Henry!
        Henry: Relax. I think I'm kidding.

      • Margaux: Oh, grow up you two! We all know you only like me because I have money.
        Cherie: That's not true!
        Margaux: Okay, then why do you like me?...Well?
        Punky: We're thinking!

      • Margaux: That trip meant a lot to you two, and you gave it up for me. Why'd you do it?
        Punky: You're our friend.
        Cherie: Yeah, and you're more important than a silly old ski trip.
        Margaux: You guys...if you think you promise not to mess up my hair, maybe we could...hug?

      • Punky: You're broke? That's impossible. Henry says that you guys are so rich that when your parents got married, they didn't throw rice--they threw Chinese people!

      • Margaux: Oh, that's right, you two have never been here before, have you? How come?
        Punky: You've never invited us.
        Margaux: I knew there was a reason.

      • Cherie: (in Margaux's room) Punky, we should live like this. We were born for caviar and champagne!
        Punky: No, we were born for Doritos and chocolate milk!

      • Punky: It's Margaux. I feel so sorry for her. She's been a mess ever since she found out she got bankruptured.

      • Betty: Thanks to you, Henry, I'll never be able to show my face in that market again.
        Henry: That's a break for the store, one look from you and the lettuce wilts."
