Saying Goodbye 2
What do you think, Frank . . . am I nuts?
No, you're not crazy. Rebecca's twenty-eight. I mean, it's about time she got a car...
Hey, what do you think of this one here?
No way! Look at the price!
She needs a small car-something she can drive around Boston.
Frank . . . she's driving all the way to San Francisco.
She's gonna drive three thousand miles . . . by herself? . . . Is that safe?
I think she should fly if she insists on going, but she said she'd rather put the money in a car that she can use when she's out there.
I'd never drive that far by myself. You know that daughter of yours is pretty independent. Hey, now here's a car to drive across country.
She got into a good school, Frank. The San Francisco College of Music.
Music school? That'll never pay off. You can't make any money in music.
You're telling me! I thought she should go to a local college.
Well, that makes more sense to me. So why does she have to go all the way to San Francisco?
Well, the school out there accepted her . . . and they offered her financial help.
Well that's good, right?
I guess so.
Hey, if you're so worried about this, why don't you talk her out of it?
I can't change her mind. She's all fired up about the idea. Says it's her dream.
Yeah, but dreams don't pay bills.
Yeah, well there's nothing I can do . . . If this is what she wants, maybe I can help her with a car.
Well, if she's gonna be driving, you know, all the way across country, she's gotta have a decent car.
Hey . . . hey, here's one of those what do you call it Oldsmobile Deltas?
Yeah, Oldsmobile Delta.
Hey, looks in tip-top shape, look.
Oh, you don't know about used cars, Frank. Whew! 80,000 miles.
Oh, that's a lot of miles! You know we have to take a close look at the engine, the tires, the doors, everything . . .
It's a lot of money, Frank. I don't wanna get ripped off.
You have to watch these used car salesmen.
I don't know . . . Do I wanna do this?
She'll love you for it.
You think so?
Yeah . . . there, come on, let's take a look.
Whew, watch that one . . . Hey, looks clean, no oil leaks.
That's a lotta mileage, Frank . . . Let's have that mechanic of yours, what's his name . .
Yeah. We'll tell the salesman we want our mechanic to take a look at it before we pay anything.
And we take it for a test drive, too.
You got it.
OK. Let's make a deal.
