Storyline

In the first show broadcast in the 1980's, Flo is dating a big rig trucker named Sy. When she finds out that he's taken on a young, female driving partner,she becomes jealous. She then asks Alice to teach her how to drive a semi-truck. Alice's late husband was a driver as well. Along with Vera, they pile into Sy's rig while he and his partner are in Mel's eating. What follows is a very funny driving lesson, Flo honking and yelling out the window at guys and then the big finish. When returning to Mel's diner, Flo goes to step on the break but instead hits the gas pedal! The semi plows straight through the front of Mel's Diner! The audience loved it, as did I, it's my favorite of the whole series. Written by happipuppi13
