[Downtown Leacy City, day. A hybrid car zips along Main Street. Roman is driving it, with AnYo and Shemy in the back seat and Ike safely tocked into his car seat behind Roman. He stops in front of the Waterson's house. The car has "hybrid" plastered all over it]
Hey there, Richard!
[stops shoveling snow and stands up] Oh,Hey Roman Belic. New Car?
Yeah. It's a hybrid. I just... I just couldn't sit back and- [closes his eyes as if to banish bad thoughts] be a part of destroying the earth anymore.
Well Good for you.
Oho... [gives a thumbs up, closes his eyes and says with a slight falsetto] Thanks. [drives off and back into town, where Dan Mandel and Wendy Conbury observe him drive by]
Well, there goes the new high-and-mighty Roman Belic.
Yeah, ever since he got that new hybrid he thinks he's better than everyone else.
[An intersection.Roman Belic ends up abreast of an SUV and gets the driver's attention.]
You know, the emissions from a vehicle like yours causes irreparable damage to the ozone. I drive a hybrid; it's much better for the environment. [begins to drive away, with his eyes closed] Thanks.
Dad, can we go home? All you ever do since you got this car is drive around and show it off! [a quite-satisfied Gerald stops at the next intersection. Another hybrid car pulls up alongside him]
