Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1261
Achilles' heel, kinematic, bully pulpit, plucky
When Kumar started getting plucky with Kelly after she lost her job, ordering her about the house, and using his new position as the sole bread-winner of the household as a bully pulpit to freely criticize her folks, she found some justification in using his Achilles' heel, i.e. his dependence on her cooking, to restore some balance, and sometimes showed him how kinematic the empty dishes could get if he demanded dinner while on his 'high horse'.
