It's dog-eat-dog out here.

Stake your claim.

Son of a bitch!

But through it all,

the old man remained positive...

...and steadfast in his encouragement.

Stop sign!

Stop sign.

Formal education had to wait.

Being not quite 16

meant that every discussion...

...revolved around only one of two topics.

There were cars, of course.

And then... Oh, yes,

and then there were them.

Drucilla Gootrad.

My sweet Drucilla. Beauty incarnate.

The hands-down heartthrob

of Hohman High.

I didn't stand a chance with her.

No one did.

Unless you were a quarterback

by the name of Todd Chapin...

...a feat which would require developing

strikingly chiseled features...

...and then beating Elkhart Lutheran

on the final play with a 60-yard bomb.

The rest of us, those wretched souls...

...who couldn't throw or catch

or leap or shoot...

...would have to settle for

being with her in our dreams.

Now, then, you will share with us...

...the location of the resistance fighters?

Perhaps I could help

to refresh your memory.

Go ahead, frulein. Kick and scream.

But your American boyfriends

aren't going to rescue you today.

I ain't her boyfriend.

Not yet, anyway.

Don't try anything fancy, soldier boy.

Oh, yeah? How's this?

You saved me from a fate worse than death.

Just doing my job, ma'am.

Oh, Private Ralphie Parker.

You will forever have

my undying love and affection.



My father picked me up from school

that afternoon.

The tired pistons on his beloved Olds...

...were slowly sputtering

into that good night...

...and the time had come for a change.

Any pea-brain can go out

and buy a new car.

But landing a good used one?

You gotta be on your toes.

- That's it. Yeah.

- Okay?

Just remember, treat the

gas like your wife.

Treat the clutch like your mother-in-law.
