- Sorry about that.

- It's okay.

Look, can you unlock the door

to the elevator room?

My car won't start, and I need to

get upstairs and get a cab.

Yeah, I can.

I've just got to find my key cards.

Sorry. Where are those darn keys?

I'm about to do my rounds anyway, so...

- Okay, great.

- What happened to your car?

- I have no idea.

- You probably left the lights on.

I don't think so. I'm usually pretty good

about that kind of thing.

People do it all the time. It's instinctive.

You drive down here, it's dark... It happens.

Here we go.

- Great.

- You know, actually...

I have a charger in the back, so if it is

your battery probably you could use that.

Thank you, but... I really should

just take a cab. I'm so late as it is.

No, no. It would probably take longer

to get a cab. It's Christmas Eve.

So... I don't know. Up to you.

Whatever you want.

- How long will it take?

- Just a few minutes.

Now with beautiful Metropolitan

Opera House in the background,

let's check out

the temperatures in the Tri- State Area.

- Which way to your car?

- Over there.


Working late, huh? I know how you feel.

These are pretty reliable cars

for the most part, right?

They're supposed to be.

All right. Positive...


- All right, try it. Turn her over.

- Okay.


Hang on. Can you turn your headlights on?

Weird. Try turning the keys again.

- Damn it.

- All right. I guess turn the headlights off.

You know what?

That's it.

You've been a great help, but I give up.

Sorry. I don't know what happened.

I thought I could do something.

You've been great. Could you just

let me in the elevator room now?

I was just trying to help.

I know. And I appreciate it. Thank you.

Hey, I know you're upset

about your car not starting, but...

It's the holidays. It's time to be thankful.
