Black SplatUncle Buck (1989)

"I’m coming looking for you!"

Uncle Buck - John Candy as Buck Russell

Description: John Candy as Buck Russell warns a nasty school administrator in the motion picture Uncle Buck (1989).

While babysitting his sister-in-laws three children (as she visits her sick father), Uncle Buck is called upon to visit his young niece’s grade school. He meets with assistant principal Anita Hogarth (Suzanne Shepherd) and can't help but stare at the prominent mole on her face as he greets the woman.

"I'm Buck Melanoma. Moley Russell's wart. Not her wart. Not her wart! I'm... I'm the wart. She's my tumor. My... my growth. My... uh, my pimple. I'm Uncle Wart. Just old Buck "Wart" Russell. That's what they call me, or Melanoma Head. They'll call me that. "Melanoma Head's coming." I'm s... uncle! Maizy Russell's uncle!"

When Mrs. Hogarth accuses Maizy (Gaby Hoffmann) of being a dreamer and a silly heart, Uncle Buck rises to her defense:

“I don’t think I want to know a six-year-old who isn’t a dreamer, or a silly heart. And I sure don’t want to know one who takes their student career seriously. I don’t have a college degree. I don’t even have a job. But I know a good kid when I see one. Because they’re ALL good kids, until dried-out, brain-dead skags like you drag them down and convince them they’re no good. You so much as scowl at my niece, or any other kid in this school, and I hear about it, and I’m coming looking for you! Take this quarter, go downtown, and have a rat gnaw that thing off your face! Good day to you, madam.”
