Episode Summary

The K.O. Kid
A friend of 4th grade teacher Mike Fulton comes to his classroom to teach the children about the art of boxing. The need to defend themselves touches the kids personally when a 5th grade bully pushes them around and grabs their lunches every day. As it turns out, Punky is the only one unwilling to give "Moose McGirk" exactly what she wants, and addition to giving Punky a black eye, Moose challenges her to another fight. Even more trouble lurks, however, when Henry blatantly refuses to let his daughter have any part in this madness.moreless

    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Punky: (about Henry giving a bully a bloody nose many years ago) Way to go, Henry! You must have felt great.
        Henry: Well, I did at first, but later, I felt sad.
        Punky: What do you mean?
        Henry: Well, I've learned that no matter what the circumstances, it never feels good to hurt another person.

      • Henry: Punky, I've been remembering a time when I had to confront a school bully. A brute little boy named Norbert Noodleman, but everyone called him No-Neck.
        Punky: No-Neck Noodleman?
        Henry: He was always...hassling me. He'd say (imitates Noneck) "Who's this here? Henry Warmimouth"?
        Punky: (laughs) Warmimouth!
        Henry: Wasn't funny then. It isn't funny now.
        Punky: Sorry.

      • Moose: Back down, Punky, before you get hurt!
        Punky: No way. Whenever you push me down, I'm gonna get right back up. And I'm gonna keep getting back up until you stop picking on people. Every time you want to take someone else's lunch, you're gonna have to go through me to get it. Now, are you willing to do that every day for the rest of your life?
        Moose: Sure.

      • Henry: You know, Punky, I panicked this afternoon when I saw you were hurt.
        Punky: That's funny. I panicked while I was getting hurt!
        Henry: You're the most precious thing in my life. The thought of anything bad happening to you scares me to death.

      • Punky: Remember, yesterday, when you said that if we stayed in school and got a good education, it would help us in later life?
        Marvin: That's right.
        Punky: Well, if I stay in school, I may not have a later life.

      • Henry: Punky, you know I don't approve of fighting.
        Punky: But Moose started it!
        Henry: But still, you didn't have to go along with it.
        Punky: I couldn't help it. She took my sandwich and threw it in the trash can.
        Henry: Why didn't you just walk away?
        Punky: 'Cause I was still holding the sandwich.
        Henry: This Moose person sounds like a...an animal!

      • Betty: Henry, Punky is standing up for something she believes in. If you forbid her to fight, she may lose her self-esteem.
        Henry: If she fights she may lose her teeth!
        Betty: Well what good is having all your teeth if you're ashamed to show your face?
