How about... Squatting Dog?
[Jack gives him a surprised look]
Squatting Dog? That's the best you could come up with?
I had a dog once who had a terrible case of the squirts. He was my best friend in the whole world.
Didn't you have any other pets?
I had a squirrel named Numb Nuts.
I think I'll take... Squatting Dog.

The Disney Channel version also has an entirely different scene, in which the Indian Guides play a game called "I've Always Wondered", where they discuss things that they've always wondered. This more subtly achieves what the NBC television version does with Jack's speech in which he pretends to be an Italian actor playing a Native American. There are additional small changes in the Disney Channel edit that enhance the film. See more »
I can remember loving this movie back in the '90s. I recently rewatched it and still thought it was a pretty good movie. The cast had some really big names (for the time), a number of jokes seemed like it pushed the "Disney limits", and well....Chevy Chase. Going back after all these years to watch Man of the House, you notice how '90s the film really is. From video games, to clothing, and hairstyles, it's full of nostalgia. Man of the House is right in the mix of Disney's mid-90s push for live action movies like Heavyweights, Mighty Ducks, and The Santa Clause.
