On this week's encore edition, Tom and Ray are called in to referee a tiff between high school sweethearts Kate and Aaron. College has made their relationship long-distance, and Kate's getting tired of doing all the visiting, because Aaron can't bring himself to get a driver's license. Can Tom and Ray get Aaron behind the wheel-- or at least convince him to park his keister in a bus seat every once in a blue moon?
Meanwhile, romance is also on the move in Ithaca, New York, where Ted and his fiancee are getting ready to relocate to Alaska. The question is, will his other love, an '87 Ram Van, be able to join them?
For those looking to keep their relationship stable, Tom and Ray share the findings of one study. (Hint: the magic phrase is, "Yes, Dear!)
Finally, we meet the most polite high school student ever, and hear the culmination of a Car Talk prank that has finally reached its very-nearly bone-dry conclusion. All that and more, this week on Car Talk.
