HORNS BLAST I'm sure it's just a minor problem.
I'll have us back on the road in no time.
As far back as I can remember, we've always had the same car...
Hey, Pal! Come here, boy! (Where are you?)
Wow! I guess you could say I grew up in this car.
-Sure hope Dad can fix it.
-See, the car's sick,
so we took it to the car doctor. He'll make our car all better.
-This is bad. Very bad...
The belt's overloading the transmission and the fuel injection.
- Can you fix it? - Can I FIX it? Of course I...can.
- Well...WILL you? - I dunno. It's a big job.
How much will it cost?
First, we got the timing belt... then there's the head gasket, and...
Oh, yeah, the piston rods... Here you go.
We'll, um, need to think about it.
Fixing that car will cost more than buying a new one.
-You mean we're getting a new car?!
-No way, DW!
-Not a NEW car.
We can only afford a USED car, but, hey...it'll be new to us.
A NEW car...
Arthur? At the next red light, could you bring me more juice?
Mom, can we get a camper? Can we? Can we? Ple-ease...
DW, we'll have to get something smaller than that. Much smaller...
Sorry, no room.
Ay, ay, ay...
Dad? Aren't you worried some stuff'll spill back there?
No, DW, I'm not.
What's gonna happen to our car?
It's in bad shape. If we can't sell it, we'll give it to the junk yard.
-The JUNK yard?!
-That's what happens when cars don't work any more.
Look at the bright side, Arthur.
You could get an even better car, like mine, for instance.
Come on, Arthur! If we bounce high enough, we can touch the roof.
Boys, today is Saturday. Know what people do on Saturday? Buy cars.
Which means on Saturdays, we SELL cars,
or should I say, ONE of us does.
I made it as easy as I could,
gave my 20-minute training course, offered fabulous sales incentives.
Can anyone tell me what customer's the best kind of customer?
The kind that HAS to buy a car... today.
Follow me! Learn from the master.
Rule number one - you're selling a dream.
Well, if it isn't the Reeds! My favourite family!
David, how are you? ..Jane, it's been too long. And little Kate.
Arthur! In shape for the soccer season.
-DW, already know which car YOU want, don't you?
-You bet I do!
Ed, the reason we're here... I know why you're here.
To buy the car of your dreams.
The only think I don't know is which of these fine cars will that be...
ALL SHOUT AT ONCE We should've talked about this.
Let's agree we won't buy a car unless we ALL like it. OK?
Rule number two, only ONE person decides which car they buy. ME.
Then we subtract the Special Friends discount, and we get... Bingo!
How do I make a living offering prices like this?
Rule number three,
"Yikes" minus I-K is yes.
-Oh, what's the top of your price range?
-A third of THAT.
Pick out the one you love.
Oh, she's special, isn't she?
These seats aren't as comfy as the ones in our car.
..You said we ALL had to like it.
Sorry, Ed. We'll come back next Saturday and try again.
For now, we'll use the catering van.
Rule number four, if you get into trouble, call for help.
-Hi, Arthur. Would you like a ride to school?
-So... This is a pretty nice car, don't you think?
Sometimes Dad lets me ride in a car from his lot. Only special cars.
Like this one. Say...
-isn't your family looking for a new car?
Why don't you buy this one? It's perfect. It looks great on you.
-I know what you're up to, Molly.
-It's time to let go of the past.
Cars die, cars get replaced. It happens every single day.
-The Crosswires are here to help.
-That car's like one of our family.
It's a hunk of metal.
Come on, Arthur! You LOVE this car. This car will make you popular.
-You'll be sorry, Arthur!
This baby won't be around for long.
I can take it off your hands for... 200.
200?! Gee, I was sure I could get more than...
Nobody's gonna buy it in this condition. I'll sell it for scrap.
200. I'll be by to pick it up tomorrow.
-What's wrong, Arthur?
-Dad sold the car to the mechanic.
He'll collect it tomorrow, sell it to the junk yard.
-You know what my mom says when I feel like you do?
-"When one door closes, another door opens."
-What does that mean?
Dunno. It never makes ME feel any better.
SPLUTTERING What's that noise?
If I knew, I could save the car.
-Hey! I know who can tell us what's making that sound!
You'll find out soon enough.
Meet you here tomorrow morning. Bring a radio, a telephone
and fresh drinking water with lemon.
-I can't get through.
-'Hello, you're on Car Talk.'
-Really? I AM?
-'Course. You didn't call for pizza, huh?'
-I'm Arthur, from Elmwood City.
We drove through there once. There was a place called the Sugar Bowl.
-They made GREAT chocolate malted milkshakes.
-I remember! What's up?
-You sound young to be driving.
-The family car makes this funny noise.
-If I don't find out why, it goes to the junk yard.
-We'd a '51 Dodge.
With a trunk that you could fit an elephant in. I remember!
-You ran out of oil and ruined it.
-You never forget the first one!
-What kind of a sound is the car making?
-Do the sound! Do the sound!
Um, i-it's kind of like this...
Cank-c-c-cank...c-cank... ..Oh! The mechanic!
It goes, "Oh! The mechanic"? What a car(!)
No, the mechanic is outside.
-To take the car to the junk yard!
-Mechanic? House calls? Sounds bad.
From the sound you're making, I can't tell what's wrong with it.
Let ME try. SPLUTTERS LIKE CAR
-I've always wanted to do that.
-'Ah! It sounds like a rattle.
-'I think you have a rattle in the exhaust system.'
-I'm on the phone with the Car Talk guys.
-The...Car Talk guys?!
-They said it's some kind of rattle in the exhaust system!
'You HAVE a rattle in the exhaust system.
-'The things babies play with. Check the tail pipe.'
-Check the pipe.
-Check the tail pipe!
-The tail pipe?
-Yours doesn't have one.
-In the back, below the trunk.
Well...I suppose that COULD be the source of your problem.
Mysterious things, cars.
Here, why don't you hold onto this for now?
Arthur, you saved us lots of money. You deserve a reward.
What'll it be? Pizza? Ice cream?
How about we just go for a drive?
-Everything OK, back there?
