The one where John and Elly are horrified by the reminder that Mike wants to get his learners' permit so he can pretend that he's Speed Racer.

Synopsis: Mike's initial enthusiasm about the new car is dampened by his idiot mother wanting a duplicate of her old boring box of momness. As she wolfs down her grub (seriously....her cooking actually deserves to be called 'grub' because 'food' unwarrantedly ennobles it), he wants her to not buy another boring and dull car because he doesn't want to admit that the machine and owner must match. As he tells her to think 'stylish', she asks why...only to choke on her own Little Orange Surprise With Carrot Coins when he reminds her that he gets his learner's permit in June.

Summary: They don't know it yet but they're about to tick "See the back end of THAT GIRL!!!!" off their list of "Ways to be self-absorbed idiot parents who win all the time" because Mike's perfect love of looking like a cool dude casteth out Martha. Also, this is the beginning of their on-going war against teenage motorists.
