Derek (Michael Seater) is excited about his upcoming 16th birthday but becomes increasingly despondent as he realizes both his friends and his family have forgotten. In truth, his friends are planning a surprise party. His family, on the other hand, actually has forgotten. At home, a family campaign is underway to convince George (John Ralston) to replace his beloved 16 year old car ("The Prince"). Concerned about the attachment issues George has with his car, the family stages an intervention. George finally relents and grudgingly approves the purchase of a new car. When reminded by Casey (Ashley Leggat) about Derek's birthday, a guilt-ridden George decides that he has the perfect solution to both situations: he'll GIVE Derek the old car as a present. The big day arrives and George presents Derek with his gift, handing him a set of car keys. Derek is horrified when he realizes the keys belong to "The Prince," and George is hurt that Derek doesn't share his appreciation for the car. ... Written by Anonymous
