Theyjust want a Bible name

for the kid.

What do you

think about Aaron?

I think it's better than Moses.

I know it's crazy

and we're young, but...

the other day when I felt

that little heartbeat...

I don't know. It made

me feel happy.

That's good, Bobby.

Thafs real good.

It wouldjust start I think...

But it's not...

Just try again.

Try again.

- l'm sorry. Tell them l'm sorry.

- April, it's fine, OK?

Put it in neutral. We'll push you

out of the way. Come on, Bobby.

What's the matter?

You forget how to drive'?

Your dad take your

leamefs permit?

Come on! Move your car!

You guys wanna get out

and help us push

or you just gonna sit there

and keep honking?

- It won't happen again.

- Yeah, sorry.

Thank you. Ma'am.

- Hey, we could be friends.

- What? Let's go!

Will you boys grow HP!

Where are you going?

Over to the right, April.


All right. Good.


- Should I call a tow truck'?

- No, it's all right. I got it.

L'm sorry about my friends.

They tn/ to be funny but only

succeed at being idiots.

- Amanda, let's go.

- Yeah, come on, let's get out of here.

- OK!

- Come on!

- Amanda.

- Seriously.

It's all right.

You don't have to wait around.

Oh. OK.

- Thanks for your help.

- Yeah. Anytime.

Amanda! You're wasting

your time.

Thank you.


I don't want you

to take this the wrong way

'cause you're my cousin and I

love you, but you are a jackass.

Did you not see the beautiful girl who

just pushed a car to try to talk to you?

She was being nice, all right'?

She's nice.

- Yeah, she is. She's also hot.

- She is hot.

Start her up.

She'll be fine now.

- Thanks, Dawson.

- Go on. It's all right.

See you later.

I turn the key and

nothing happens.

What do you think?

Karmic payback for being

party to the honking'?
