In this episode Brad's character is developed in major ways. He goes from being just Mr. Cool to being the adventurous boy who really has higher expectations set for himself than he cares to admit. Although his actions in this episode are somewhat childish, it shows his struggle to of changing from boy to man with the right of passage we tend to call DRIVING! And although he messes things up, in the end he makes ammends and shows the inner sweetie he is.
I also love this episode because it's Brad and Jenny's first real fight.
