A teenager is at the wheel of the family car, his girl at his side. The road is unfamiliar to him, and he relies on her for directions. They approach the intersection of a busy highway; he comes to a stop, looks tot he left and right, and puts the car into low gear. As the car moves slowly into the intersection, he queries his companion: "We turn left here, don't we?" "Right!" she emphatically agrees.
