Whilst i'm after a Pentax K30 or one of the K5's and will use it for multitude of subjects she wants a 600D for the only reason of its got 18MP. and the only reason she is going for a Canon is cos its what everyone uses. so how do i explain to her its not just MP? i currently have a basic Oly CSC with only 12mp but its more than good enough for looking at the pics on a screen or printing at a reasonable size. she wants it for portraits so is never going to massive posters. i just don't know how to explain it to her.

you are right that picking canon for the mp is not a good reason, but there are many other good reasons for going canon over pentax or m43:

1, much cheaper lenses

2, better AF than both

3, wider range of lenses

4, more mature and cheaper flashes

5, great upgrade path, if she buys EF primes and EF tele zooms, and if in2 years time she would like a FF, she can.

I love Pentax for quality and for me at least its best all rounder with weather sealing as i'll be taking it out in some wet weather and i have a couple of old lenses i can use.

Great! But this is her camera not yours.  It seems like your real problem isn't that it is 18 mp or that she's buying it because of that fact but that it is a Canon instead of your favorite brand (Pentax apparently).
