I like at the very end when they are headed out for some bling for her, the guy says "we'll take your summer car"! so beside lots of bling she has more than one car?

You know, my partner just asked yesterday why I need a Time Trial bike and a Race bike, I think really she was just getting tire of having the only bike that can pull a trailer.

Many of us feel the need to get a spare bike for every bike we own.

(In fact we did a thread on it a while ago.)
