Pumpkin - Popular term of endearment used by many script writers when referring to TV characters, especially by a father towards his daughter.

Kelly 'Pumpkin' Bundy

On the sitcom MARRIED WITH CHILDREN/FOX/1987-97 shoe salesmen Al Bundy (Ed O'Neill) used this affectionate nickname for his teenager Kelly Bundy (Christina Applegate). Since Kelly was not the brightest girl around, this vegetable nickname suited her quite well.

Once Kelly's frustrated dad said "Pumpkin, when Daddy goes to the chair, would you sit on my lap one last time?" Kelly responded "I'd be honored." See also "The Dumbest Girl in America"

Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) on the sitcom FRIENDS/NBC/1994-2004 was also called "Pumpkin" by her father (Elliot Gould).
