Twenty-two reasons why they should make a Hollywood movie about the Poinkers

The more I listen to the comings and goings in this household, the more I’m certain we should be in a blockbuster Hollywood movie.

Here are twenty-two examples of what I’m talking about…

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.” Pinky’s response to Scotto informing her about who made the Footy Grand Finals. 

Gone With the Wind

"Pablo, I've got a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore." Celine the Fox Terrier telling Pablo the Chihuahua they’ve just been checked in to the boarding kennels for two weeks. 
The Wizard of Oz.

“Go ahead, make my day.” Scotto watching pooping Ibises about to fly on to the freshly hosed patio. 

"What we've got here is failure to communicate." Pinky to Scotto when he forgets to put the bins out on Tuesday nights. 
Cool Hand Luke.

“I love the smell of your underarm in the morning.” Pablo the Chihuahua when he wakes up and Pinky is snoring on top of him. Apocalypse Now

“P.P. phone home.” Text message sent to teenager Padraic Poinker’s phone at least eight times every weekend. E.T.

"Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." What Pinky says when she cracks open a bottle of Louis Latour Chardonnay. Casablanca

"A teenager once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti." Pinky explaining to Padraic that as he’s her fourth teenager she knows all the tricks already. Silence of the Lambs

“Show me the money!” Pinky accosting Hagar for the car registration fee he borrowed from her as he walks in the door on payday. Jerry Maguire

“You can’t handle the truth!” Pinky explaining why she can’t tell Scotto how much she paid for her new shoes. 

A Few Good Men

“After all, tomorrow is another day.” Padraic making another excuse for not mowing the lawn when Pinky has already paid him. 
Gone With the Wind

“I’ll have what she’s having.” Pablo the Chihuahua watching his sister Celine chewing on a bone. 
When Harry Met Sally

“I’ll be back.” Scotto as he leaves for work every day. 
The Terminator.

"Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." Scotto finding one of Pinky’s hairs in his spaghetti bolognese.
Forrest Gump

“I see dead cockroaches.” Pinky when she comes downstairs to the kitchen in the morning. 

“It’s alive! It’s alive!” Pinky when she tries to pick one up by its feelers. 

“You had me at ‘hello’” Pinky when Scotto brings her coffee and vegemite toast in bed. 
(Jerry Maguire)

"Get your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape." Pinky ten minutes later. Jokes. 
Planet of the Apes.

“My precious.” Scotto retrieving the gourmet corn chips he hid from the teenage locusts in the back of the fridge. 
Lord of the Rings.

“Yo, Adrian.” Pablo being cool. 

“I’m King of the World!” Scotto when he makes a new level in World of Warcraft. 

"I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too!" Our neighbour to Pinky when Pablo has been out the back barking at nothing all day. 
(Wizard of Oz)
