Rob has just bought a new car, which he can't stop admiring. On day two of ownership, Rob is planning on driving to work so that he can show it to Buddy and Sally. Laura puts a small crimp in his plans since their station wagon is in the shop, so she needs to drive the new car as it is her day to carpool the children to school. Rob is paranoid that the kids will destroy any newness to the car and that Laura will get into an accident. Sure enough, a large scratch on the passenger side materializes while Laura has the car out for the day, although the scratch is due to no fault of her own. Still, she knows that Rob is going to kill her because of it. Laura has to decide whether to tell Rob and receive his certain wrath, or hide the fact of the scratch until she can get it repaired, which means tricking him into not driving the car to work the next day. Perhaps Rob will understand that an accident can happen to anyone, even a distracted comedy writer.

Well, Rob, take it easy. It's only paint. It'll heal.
