Snow Dogs

Synopsis: When Miami dentist Ted Brooks learns that his birth mother has passed away and that he was named in her will, he travels to Alaska to claim his inheritance. Rather than the large chunk of change that many people would expect, Ted instead receives his mother's pack of rowdy sled dogs and her property. Although the dogs seemingly have it in for Ted, he decides to keep the dogs and race them in the local race, the Arctic Challenge, spiting a mountain man who wants the dogs. What follows is a comedy detailing Ted's adventures in learning to run the sled dogs.

Mrs. Yepremian

I would like

you to meet

my new associate, Dr. Brooks.

He's here for Career Day.


He's adorable.

He wants to be

a dentist

just like his dad.

All right, let's see

what's going on in there.

Oh, boy.

Aah... Dr. Brooks,

is this gonna hurt?

I'm afraid just a little.

More than a tickle

but way less than

paying your taxes.

That's right.

All right,

let's see.

Dr. Brooks!

I think I need a second opinion.

- Me?

- Mm-hmm.

Son, if you want

to be a great dentist

never forget

the personal touch.






La-la-la-la-la, la-la-la

Walking down the boulevard

I don't need

no lucky charm today

Not today

'Cause I got rhythm

in my feet

I got my pockets

full of green today...

Hello, ladies!

- Oh.

- Hi.

Beautiful day in Miami.

I'm gonna see my little girl

before the sun goes down

And there's nothir left to do

but to do the town today

What a day

I'm gonna meet her at the

station at a quarter to three

'Cause she's

finally comir back

Comir back to me today





Just to have her to myself

Just to feel

the way I felt again

Once again

To you, my friend,

I must confess

To me she stands

above the rest, you see

Can't you see?

Gonna see my little girl

before the sun goes down

And there's nothir left to do

but to do the town today

What a day

I'm gonna meet her at the

station at a quarter to three

'Cause she's finally comir

back, comir back to me




Good morning, fine ladies.

- Good morning.

- Good morning.

Busy day, Doctor.

Yeah, they all are.

We will be with you all

in a while

and we promise

to make you smile.

Now, if yourjaw still hurts


take two pills.

If it still hurts

tomorrow, then...

you should probably find

a new dentist.


"Find a..."

It's a little joke.

- Oh.

- Anyway

just call us tomorrow,

let us know how you feel.

- Wow.

- Thank you.

- Sugar cookies.

- Hello, little darling.

Hello, you.

Mom... hi.

Teddy Bear!

Hi. How are you?

Can I...?

Excuse us for a second.

- Uh, enjoy them.

- Come on, Mom.


I love that you're

involved in my practice

but you can't be giving

out sugar cookies

in a dental office.

Your father always believed

in the personal touch.

And repeat business.

Hey, T, got a surprise.

This guy says

he's an old buddy of yours.

I don't know this man.

Well, I'm Ernesto

Julio Raphael Santisto.


And you've been served.

Do you validate?

Oh, no, you got to go.

Hey, hey, stamp

my ticket, man.

- Sure, I'm gonna

stamp your head.

- Stamp my ticket!


Are you being sued?

Oh, hey, if this is

about that Freeman kid...

he's lying.

I mean, okay, maybe I shouldn't

have been drilling left-handed

but he dared me...

Would you shut up.

It's about a will.


But I definitely think they have

the wrong Theodore Brooks.

It's about some lady in Alaska,

a place called Tolketna.


They definitely got

the wrong Ted Brooks.

See, they're looking

for the white Ted Brooks.

Well, her name is

Lucy Watkins...


Rupert, get her

something to drink!

Wait a minute,

relax, relax.

Sit down.

Breathe, breathe.

Here. Rinse and spit.

Oh, Teddy Bear...

How can I...?

How do I...?

How do you what?!



You're adopted.

We always meant to tell you

and then your father died...

This doesn't change anything.

I am your mother

no matter what.

You will always be

my Teddy Bear...

I love you, I love you,

I love you, my Teddy Bear...

my Teddy Bear...



Hey, Ted, come on.

Don't trip on this.

All right?

A lot of people are adopted.

Famous people.

You know, you got Webster

and Soon-Yi.

And those kids

from Different Strokes

they turned out okay.

I should've known.


There were so many signs.


Yeah, I...

Like what?


Like blue cheese!

I love blue cheese,

and they hate it.



So how was it living

with strangers?

Why am I a dentist,


Duh! 'Cause your

daddy's a dentist.

Maybe I was meant

to do something different...

be someone else.


I'm an Eskimo?!

All right, cuz.

I got you everything you need

for your trip

to Alaska.

I'm only going

for a couple of days!

Yeah, well, I know you

just wanted a parka

but your credit card

wanted more.

Oh, I got these

shoes for myself.


Yeah, fly, right?

What is

all of this, Rupert?


For those cold Alaskan

nights... you know

other than getting

a little Na-nooky...

I got you a personal,


warm and cold system.

It's the ultimate climate

control accessory.

But wait, there's more.

There better not be more.


you're gonna receive a bill

for a massage chair.

- Out!

- I like that co...

Dance with me,

dance with me

Oh, baby, dance with me,

dance with me...

Shut up, Chester!

I hate you!

When I bought this condo

no one told me a little rat

like you lived next door!

I'm so sick

of your barking!

Welcome to Anchorage.

We got a real scorcher today...

expecting a high

of three degrees.

As reigning champion,

what have you learned?

I know that nothing can

be left to chance.

In this race

man and beast

must move as one.

And when I cross the finish line

nothing refreshes

like Powerade...

the only drink on my sled.

Attention, please.
