Synopsis: After his first ride in the car, Mike tells Elly that he wants to sit in the car for a minute to read the manual. Once she leaves, he thought-bubbles that he also wishes that the car was his.
Summary: This is because Mike is actually a normal kid for once. Most kids dream of getting their license and being free of their parents for a bit. What they don't dream of is forking over most of their money on insurance and gas. John likes to tell them about that because he's a jerk.
