Rob comes home uncharacteristically lackadaisical, talking about the joys of freedom. Laura soon finds out that Rob's talk of freedom relates to the fact he just bought a motorcycle (a small Geronimo). Laura doesn't like the idea of a motorcycle - large or small - which she thinks is unsafe since she knew a boy in high school who got into a serious accident with one. She also knows that Rob is a klutz. As such, Rob reluctantly agrees to give it up, but turning that talk into action is a little more difficult for him, which leads to another argument on whether or not to keep the motorcycle. In the end, Rob feels entitled to one ride of freedom before selling it - a ride which might very well lead to his arrest. Written by Huggo
