How soon we forget -- or not?

Forgetting how much swearing it contained (fairly mild stuff, but nevertheless...) I showed Short Circuit to Master 6 and Miss 4.

Dreading the expected consequence, I watched der kinder carefully for the next few days, and to my somewhat startled delight, the only quote picked up from the movie — albeit with perfect timing and intonation after precisely one exposure — was Miss 4’s rendition of Johnny Five saying “Hello, knuckleheads!”
