Valerie Hogan: You drove your father's gusmeroli? You demolished your father's Gusmeroli? Did you x-ray his head?
Dr. Ervin: Yes. There was no trace of a concussion.
Valerie Hogan: Was there a trace of a brain?
Michael Hogan: [after recounting the horrible flight he just piloted] I tell you, by the time the plane landed, I was ready to murder someone. Hi Dave.
David Hogan: [hugging his father and very apologetic] Dad, I'm sorry!
Michael Hogan: What? What, it's not your fault, Dave. What's the matter with him?
David Hogan: I didn't mean to, I know I was wrong! And I promise I'll never take your car even if my life depended on it! But I'll make it up to you dad, please, please, you gotta forgive me!
Michael Hogan: Forgive you, David? What fo... My caaaar? Val, he said something about my car!
Valerie Hogan: Here's what happened, Mike. He took the car out for a short ride...
Michael Hogan: He WHAT?
David Hogan: Yeah. And I was in an accident.

Valerie Hogan: Yes. A bad accident. And although he's fine, the car was totalled.
Michael Hogan: Totalled? How totalled?
Valerie Hogan: Totally totalled.
Michael Hogan: Totally totalled?
Valerie Hogan: Wrecked, Mike. Bashed. Gone. Pfft. The car is no more.
David Hogan: [suddenly hugging him with Valerie in between them] I'm sorry, Dad!
Michael Hogan: Oh, wait a minute, ok, ha ha ha, bad joke, guys.
Valerie Hogan: Oh, no, We're not joking. We're not, honey, would that it were a joke. We have pictures here that we took for the insurance company.

Michael Hogan: [looking at them] What is this?
David Hogan: It's your car.
Michael Hogan: This? THIS? This is not my car. No, how can this be my car?
Valerie Hogan: Well, if you sort of put the pictures together like that, then you can see that it, uh, it's uh...
Michael Hogan: [with grief in his voice] My car!
Valerie Hogan: [checking his temperature] And you are, 98.6!
Willie Hogan: That's normal?
Valerie Hogan: Yeah. Tomorrow, back to school.
Mark Hogan: It'll be so good to take a test again.
Willie Hogan: That's not normal. Come on, let's go.
Mark Hogan: Good idea. We'd rather not be here when David tells Dad about the car. I'd hate to see him cry.
Valerie Hogan: Yeah, well yeah, it won't be easy for David.
Mark Hogan: I was talking about Dad.
