Bingo (1991)

Chuckie Devlin (Robert J. Steinmiller Jr.) is doing his homework with his dog Bingo (Bingo).
CHUCKIE: What is the square root of nine?
BINGO: Ruff! Ruff! Ruff!

Chuckie’s mother, Natalie (Cindy Williams) is explaining that Bingo will not find him since they’ve moved.
NATALIE: You figure it out. O.K.? How far do you think we’ve travelled by now?
CHUCKIE: Sixty miles an hour, times eight, times two, minus forty-two for lunch. O.K., hundreds of miles. So what?
