Calvin's Dad is relaxing on the couch with a journal when Calvin saunters past and asks, "Hey Dad, Remember our car?" "Sure", replies his Dad.
Calvin's Dad takes a second and then spins on his axis and scowling after Calvin asks, "Wait a minute. What do you mean, 'remember'?"
In the garden, Calvin finds his best friend, Hobbes the stuffed tiger sitting against the trunk of a tree and enjoying its shade. Calvin asks, "Hobbes, I have a question. Maybe you can help." "Sure", replies Hobbes happily. "Calvin turns away and ponders, "Suppose I did something bad. Should I tell Dad?"
Hobbes shrugs and asks, "How bad are we supposing?" "Well," exclaims Calvin, "Hypothetically, let's say pretty bad, like to his car, hypothetically." Hobbes, more concerned asks, "How bad, hypothetically, to his car?". Calvin looks ready to confess, "Well," he starts again, "let's pretend it was real bad."
Calvin looks worried. "If we imagined he could find the car, we could pretend it might be fixed." Hobbes looks wide eyed into Calvin's possible and immediate future and let's out, "I see."
Indoors and moments later, Hobbes is hurriedly handing a suitcase out toward Calvin. "You can keep the book. I'll call the bus station", he spits out. Calvin, holding the book, reads out the first Spanish phrase, "Que pasa, senorita? I am el fugitvo!".
