#0541: I Got a Visit From the Car Alarm Fairy!

Original Air Date: 10.08.2005

   Best Moment

In this week’s show, Caroline gets a gift from her middle-school class – a car alarm that won’t shut off. Denise wants to drive a guy magnet that says "single and sexy." Can the Magliozzis deliver? Later, Ray forces Aaron to defend the honor of his ’64 Valiant. Blue smoke pouring out the back doesn’t help the case. Learn a nifty new trick that’ll allow you to fill your gas tank real cheap. Here’s a hint: it’s bo-o-o-ogus. That, and more, in this week’s show.
