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.

Don't forget your scarf.


-Hi, Mr. Chin.

-Hi, Keith.

Want an apple?


Merry Christmas.

-Wake up, Mommy!

-Wake up, Mommy!

-Oh, girls.

-Wake up, Mommy!

Girls, let Mommy sleep just a little longer.

-Okay, go back to sleep.

-Thank you.

Are you asleep yet?

Yes. I'm sound asleep.

Let Mommy sleep just until

the alarm goes off.

Get her!

Oh, no, girls.

You have to go to work.

-You have to.

-I don't want to go to work.

-You have to.

-What about breakfast?

-Give me it!

-No, it's mine!

-Give me it! They're mine!

-Give me it.

What's going on?

Who started this? You or you?

-She did.

-She did.

-Give me it!

-I got it first.

Whose pants are they?



Remember, up and down.

Up and down. Got it?

Up and down, like that.

-Hey, it's my turn.

-Hey, I'm not finished.

Just a minute, now.

You already got a turn.

Okay, glamour time. Close your eyes.

There you go.

-I want more.

-Okay, one more shot.

-Hey, I want some more.

-One more.

-Mommy, close your eyes.

-They're closed.

Not too much. Okay, that's good.

That's enough, girls.

That's good. That's good.

Girls, no candy for breakfast. You can

have that when you get back from school.

You can have oatmeal. Yummy.

You're gonna love it.



You'll be sorry. You'll be sorry.

You'll be sorry.

I told you you would be sorry.



-Julie, stop it.

Oh, gosh, look at this mess.

Honey, why did you do that?

Girls, come on.

-No. This is for Christmas morning.


Come on, time to go to school.

Let's get up. Up, up, up.

Come on. Time to go to school.

Okay, hold still. Almost ready.

Julie, leave Sarah's hat alone.

I want this one.

It was on my head. Give it back.

Ladies, these hats are exactly the same.

She always gets the good hat.

That's because I'm a good girl.

-Girls, don't start.

-Sorry, Mommy. I love you.

-I love you bigger.

-No way.

-Yes, way.

-Look, ladies...

...I love you the same. You love me

the same. End of discussion.

Now, I'm gonna be late for work.

You're gonna be late

for kindergarten. Let's go.

-I get the front seat.

-No way.

-Yes, way!

-No way!

-Yes, way!

-No way!

You're both in the back!

Oh, man. For crying out loud.

Hold it right there, partner.

Just take a little shortcut.

Much obliged. Thank you very much.

Thank you. Gotta love that Roy Rogers.

Hey, Rhonda, how's the hottest

mini-mart manager going?

Look, it's Eddie the delivery boy.

-Would you like a Sludgee with that?

-No, thanks.

You're making a big mistake there, pal.

Their Sludgees are the finest.

Never too much crushed ice,

never too much sludge.

He's trying to be cute. Keep trying, Eddie.

Thank you, Bill. In other news,

The FPD bandits struck again....

-I wanna hear that.

-The robbery took place in daylight...

... the driver was rendered unconscious,

and the bandits drove away...

... with his truck full

of our Christmas presents.

-More bad news.

-Authorities are close to making an arrest.

But then again, that's

what they always say.

Eddie, you better be careful.

See, Rhonda? You really do care about me.

Why don't you come to my house tonight.

You can cook me some dinner.

See, this is why I can never say anything

nice to you. You immediately hit on me.

Oh, come on. Why won't you

go out with me, Rhonda?

I mean, we got a lot in common.

Name one thing.

We both wear nametags.

See? Rhonda, Eddie.

Eddie, Rhonda.

Kind of sings.

Oh, Eddie.

How do I say this?

You're not really my type.

Rhonda... don't know a thing about me.

Well, let's see.

Mini doughnuts, beef jerky, jellybeans....
