    • TRIVIA (1)

      • While Punky is trying to negotiate Spud's price for "101 Plot Outlines of Famous Novels" down, she was holding the book in her left hand. It mysteriously disappears while Spud is suggesting she change her name to Flunky, with nothing shown to suggest that Punky put it down or gave it back to Spud.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Henry: How could you be so irresponsible?
        Punky: It's a gift?

      • Henry: I told you there'd be no DeBarge concert until I read your book report.
        Punky: I know.
        Henry: You did finish it didn't you?
        Punky: Yeah, sure, ages ago.
        Henry: Which one of the childhood classics did you choose? 'Little Women', 'Tom Sawyer'...

        [Henry looks at the book report]

        Henry:...'War and Peace'. Interesting choice, what did you think of it?
        Punky: Loved war, hated peace.
        Henry: Punky, did you really write this book report?
        Punky: Yeah, you see, all the i's are dotted with happy faces.

      • [Spud hands Punky a huge book]

        Punky: '101 plot outlines of famous novels'...
        Spud: That baby will supply you with book reports clear through college!
        Punky: Wow!
        Spud: Yeah, you may never have to read again.
        Punky: Great, how much?
        Spud: 20 bucks.
        Punky: What? That's highway robbery!
        Spud: Hey, I have business expenses, half of everything I make goes to my dad to keep him quiet.
        Punky: I'll give you 5 dollars.
        Spud: Nope, better change your name to Flunky Brewster, bye!
        Punky: Wait Spud, isn't there some way I can change your mind?
        Spud: I never change my mind.

        [Spud climbs out the window and the tree branch starts to snap.]

        Punky: What was that?
        Spud: The sound of my mind changing, help me back inside!

      • Henry: Punky, I hope you realize they'll be no DeBarge concert until I read your book report.
        Punky: Sure, no problem.

        [Henry leaves room]

        Punky: Big problem.
        Cherie: What's wrong?
        Punky: Henry wants to read my book report.
        Margaux: So, how bad could it be?
        Punky: I don't know how bad it could be, I haven't written it yet.

      • [Margaux and Cherie come running in wearing shoulder pads]

        Cherie: We got 'em! We got em!
        Margaux: Excuse her, my first pair of shoulder pads left me giddy too!
        Punky, Cherie & Margaux: Eeeek!!
        Henry: Girls, I can't imagine Betty letting you buy such outfits...

        [Betty walks in wearing shoulder pads]

        Betty: Hi Henry.
        Henry: I see the rest of the defensive line is here.

      • Punky [looking through magazine]: Here's a story I missed, Chico DeBarge's favourite vegetable, Oh my gosh, he loves corn too!

      • [Punky is singing along to a DeBarge song in a shirt with MAJOR shoulder pads. Henry comes in and turns off the music.]

        Henry: Did you forget to take the hanger out of your shirt?
        Punky: Cool isn't it? I bought it for the DeBarge concert tomorrow night.
        Henry: Shouldn't go to a concert when you need that kind of protection.
        Punky: Henry, it's a fashion statement I read in the Rock Report. Randy and Marty DeBarge love the Joan Crawford look.
        Henry: It's more like the Chicago Bears look.
