      • Punky: My mom's not here.
        Henry: I guess Santa just couldn't get her here. I'm sure he tried his very best.
        Punky: But I don't understand. You told me anything is possible if I just believe--and I did believe. I believed with all my heart.
        Henry: I know you did.
        Punky: So why didn't she come?
        Henry: (long pause) I don't know.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Mini-inside joke: Gene Doucette is also the name of the show's costume designer.

      • The scene where Punky explains about the song she and her mother used to sing together is an extended inside joke about how Soleil Moon Frye got her unique name. The song, "I've Got the Sun in the Morning and the Moon at Night" came from the musical "Annie Get Your Gun", and Soleil's mom converted 'sun' to it's French version, 'soleil', paired it with 'moon', and that's how Soleil was named.

      • This two part was originally a one hour episode.
