To Grandmother's House We Go

Synopsis: Delivery firm truck driver Eddie Popko, a dreamy wannabee-cowboy, always flirts with convenience store clerk Rhonda Thompson, but his enthusiasm seems curbed when he meets her meanly hostile twin daughters Julie and Sarah, aged five. When the bratty pair hear mother wine all she wants for Christmas is a holiday without the handfuls, they decide to oblige by sneaking off to great grandma Mimi. Unable to find her or the right bus, they end up sneaking into Eddie's truck. He takes to babysitting during his round remarkably well, but when he delivers them home, he's knocked unconscious by senior robbers couple, dumb Harvey and mean Shirley, who stole the content of his firm's trucks, in this case Christmas parcels. Discovering the lottery tickets he bought and gave the brats to keep give access to a 1.3 million TV lottery finale, he decides to lead the search with Rhonda, police detective Gremp being incompetent, and even raises a 'borrowed' ransom.

I know you're not a health nut.

Well, hey, I take a Flintstone vitamin

every single morning.

Wrestle-Mundo magazine.

So I'm guessing you're not

exactly an intellectual.

Well, you'd be guessing wrong...

...because the crossword puzzle in there

happens to be extremely challenging.

Oh, and five Win-O-Lotto tickets...

...which tells me you throw away

your paycheck on the lottery.

This week's big jackpot: $1.3 million.

Eddie, every week, you tell me

how much you're gonna win.

And every week, you're a loser.

It'll happen, because I have a system.

What system?

Well, somebody has to win.

Might as well be me.

Somebody might steal your system.

"Then he stuck his head out

of the fireplace flue...

...where the little Who stockings

all hung in a row.

These stockings, he grinned,

are the first things to go.

Then he slithered and slunk

with a smile most unpleasant...

...around the whole room,

and he took every present.

Popguns and bicycles,

roller skates, drums...

...checkerboards, tricycles,

popcorn and plums."

Is the Grinch gonna keep

the Christmas presents?

No. We saw this on TV.

He gives the presents back at the end.

Well, Sarah, I guess you pretty much took

the surprise out of that surprise ending.

Oh, but wait.

There is a surprise ending.

"Sarah and Julie go to bed

on time tonight."

Says so right here.

Mommy, you know we can't read.

Then you're just gonna have to trust me

on this. Let's go. Up you go.

-Time for bed.

-No bed!

-No bed! No bed!

-Yes, bed. Yes, bed.

-Yes, bed.

-No bed!

Okay, that's enough.

Mommy's gotta work,

and you've got school... we're all going to sleep.

I've got the same bedtime

as a 5 year old. This is pathetic.

I forgot to brush my bottom teeth.

I have to help her with the toothpaste.
