Production: Universal Pictures
91 min


Come here. I'm sorry.

- Beethoven, what's the matter?

- (whines)

Look, Beethoven.

I guess this is Quicksilver.

Which is in the middle of...

what's the word? Nowhere.

I sure hope they have indoor plumbing.

I know, I know.

We're a long way from home.

And we've got a long month ahead of us.

What are we going to do all summer?

There's no mall, no movies, and we don't

know anyone except Uncle Freddy.

And we haven't seen him in, like, forever.

You know what this adds up to?


(driver) Watch your step now, little lady.

Have a nice day.

- Is somebody meeting you, hon?

- My uncle's supposed to pick me up.

- He should be here any minute.

- How nice.

- Maybe I know him. What's his name?

- Freddy. Freddy Kablinski.

Freddy Kablinski?! (laughs)


(horn, siren)

(siren, horn)

- Sara? Sara Newton?

- You're 12 minutes late.

What happened to you?

Last time I saw you, you were a toddler.

- I was six.

- Well, whatever. Sorry I'm late.

I was working on this baby

and I lost track of time. Gimme that bag.

Seems like I got to tune it up

every third fire.

- Mom didn't tell me you were a firefighter.

- I'm not.

I'm a grease monkey.

A certified mechanic.


Is that the dog?

This is Beethoven.

Come on, Beethoven. Here, Beethoven.

Come and say hi.

Come on.

Don't lick Uncle Freddy.

You don't know where he's been.

Have you ever considered a face-lift?

Maybe just shorten these a little bit?

- Get this wolfhound off me.

- He's a St Bernard.

Come on, Beethoven.

So, Sara. Kicked out of camp, huh?

Way to go.

- I got kicked out of college twice.

- I wasn't kicked out.

- They asked me to leave.

- Oh, excuse me!

And just exactly why

were you asked to leave?

They wanted me to use an outhouse.

Do you know what that is?

- A bathroom that's on the outside?

- It's a toilet seat.

On a hole in the ground.

So you got sentenced to 30 days'

hard time at Camp Freddy, huh?

Uncle Freddy! Do you need glasses?


And welcome to Camp Freddy.

We got a whole month before

your parents get back from Hawaii.

- They're in the Bahamas.

- Palm trees and coconuts. Close enough.

It's OK, Beethoven, you can go on in.

Remember to wipe your feet.

Come on.

Grab the mail for me, would you?


Huh? Agh!

- Uncle Freddy, I didn't do it.

- It's OK. Go on inside.

Somebody clipped my mailbox again.

What kind of idiot can't see a mailbox?

I got to call the sheriff about this.

Throw his butt in jail is what I'd do.


Oh, no. What have you done?

You've only been here 30 seconds

and you've already trashed the place.


We're going to get kicked out of here too.


- Sorry about the kitchen.

- Something wrong?

Well... it's kind of a mess.

I'm sorry about that. I should have

cleaned up before you got here.

You mean, you did this? Not Beethoven?

Why, is he a messy dog or something?

It depends on what you call messy.

No big deal. I'll take care of this.

Just wait here one sec.

Boy, I can't wait to see my room.

OK, Sara, grab a wall.

Whoa! Uncle Freddy!

- I put the linoleum in so I could do this.

- Watch out, Beethoven!

It's just a little side benefit I get

for tuning up that fire truck.

Uncle Freddy, I already took a shower.

Beethoven, stay back!

Pretty clean, huh?

So, what do you usually have

for breakfast at home?

Mom says that nutritionally breakfast is

the most important meal of the day.

You've got to have milk

and fruit and protein.

OK. Coming right up.

There you go.

This is breakfast?

Fruit, milk and protein.

Just like you asked for.
