      • Henry: I feel terrible.
        Betty: Me too.
        Henry: Punishing Punky makes me feel like a monster.
        Betty: I know. I hate punishing Cherie. It makes me feel like such a meanie. And it's a financial setback, too.
        Henry: How's that?
        Betty: Well, when Cherie's grounded, she gets an especially large appetite. What it costs me in Ding-Dongs alone, I could retire!
        Henry: I don't know how else to make an impression. They've got to learn to take their responsibilities seriously.
        Betty: I agree. But when they're grounded for two weeks...
        Betty and Henry: We're grounded for two weeks.

      • Henry: You, young lady, are grounded for two weeks.
        Punky: Two weeks?!?
        Cherie: She won't be able to go with me to Margaux's party!
        Betty: And you're not going, either.
        Cherie: Oh, Grandma, please! I'll miss Freddy Fists and the Bloody Knuckles!
        Betty: You're gonna get bloody knuckles straight from the grunge up off your bedroom floor. Move your buns!

      • Punky: Henry, I really need to buy a new outfit for this party. Do you think you could give me an advance on my allowance?
        Henry: Your allowance has already been advanced through 1999!

      • Henry: Oh, Punky, I'm gonna be working late at the restaurant tonight. I want you to come home right after school and finish that history essay.
        Betty: (to Cherie) And I want you to come home and clean up your room before something starts growing in there. You wouldn't believe what Cherie's room looks like.
        Henry: If it's anything like Punky's, we're in danger of being condemned.

      • Margaux: So, Mr. Warnimont, I suppose you've heard about the party I'm hosting this weekend.
        Henry: Punky told me about it. Sounds like quite a bash.
        Margaux: Yes. Well, if you'd like to come, we do need another parking attendant.
        Betty: Margaux, you'd have an easier time getting through life if you'd sew your lips together.

      • Henry: Enough is enough, young lady. After school, you do this essay right. And I want you to clean your room. The closet, the sheets, the window. I want to be able to eat off this floor!
        Punky: Henry, that's why we have tables.

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

      • Henry: And where's your history essay?
        Punky: Right here, I got more detail like you suggested.
        Henry: (reads it) "Napoleon was a short nerd." I don't believe this!
        Punky: It's true. He was a shrimp.

      • Henry:(reads Punky's history essay) Napoleon was a nerd.....That's it?
        Punky: It says it all, don't you think?
