Car Wars
Dave and Vicky decide to give Hillary the car she wants as long as she agrees to sign a contract so they can completely control her life.

  • It was silly, but that is the good thing about it. It was a good episode. This season just keeps getting better and better.

    Like I said, this season of "The War At Home" just keeps getting better and better. In this episode, when Hilary wants a car really bad, her dad keeps telling her no. Finally though, Dave agrees to get her a car, but with a little twist. Hilary has to sign a car contract in order to get the car and the contract has other stuff to do on it. She has to do other stuff including errands, pick-ups, etc. Also, Mike's ex-girlfriend Heidi, meets Larry at a pizza place and decides to ask her out. In the end, Larry finds out that he gets more than Mike being with Heidi. Overall I enjoyed this episode and it was a good episode to end up till the World Series break. Make sure to catch this episode.moreless
  • Those idiots are not fit to be parents...

    What else is new, bad jokes, crappy plotlines and a complete lack of reality. Dave the "Archie Bunker Wannabe" and Vicky the "Carbon Copy of a crappy funny mom" use manipulation to make Hillary drive everywhere for them because they are to lazy to do it themselves. And Larry got Mikes ex girlfriend and some terrible "bros before ho's" thing ensued after the argument. Yet again... pathetic.
  • Another great installment to FOX's the war at home!

    many people said W@H would not survive past one season. however, it seems to be doing pretty decent in the ratings, averaging 6+ million weekly viewers. it could do better, however, i think its much more original than any other family comedies (i.e. george lopez, according to jim). this episode was very funny with hillary taking control of her parents and also the grandma was very funny. the show is just an 'A' in my book. great work guys!moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Larry: Hey, um. You know what would be fun? Why don't we ask each other questions to, you know, get to know each other better, like what's you favorite color and that kind of things?
      Heidi: Oh, okay!
      Larry: Okay, you go first.
      Heidi: Um... What's your favorite band?
      Larry: Coldplay, now my turn. Are you going out with me just to make my brother jealous so you can get him back?

    • Larry: O-or maybe she's going out with me because I'm the funny brother and you're not funny at all! You'll see this has nothing to do with you so... Ta-da!
      Mike: Yeah, if I were you, I would save the "ta-da" for the first time that she sees you with your pants off! It won't help her disappointment, but at least she'll still think you're funny, right?!

    • Dave: Larry, if there's one thing I know about, it's how to ruin a relationship with a brother. If you don't believe me, ask your Uncle Eric.
      Larry: I have an Uncle Eric?

    • Heidi: Hi, Larry!
      Larry: Hi, Heidi.
      Heidi: How is your brother? I haven't spoken to him since we broke up.
      Larry: You big lucky! Maybe I should break up with him!

    • Dave: Hillary, ask me for a car.
      Hillary: Dad, we've been through this: you tell me to ask you, I ask you, and you tell me no.
      Dave: No, but this time will be different, I promise.
      Hillary: (sighs) Can I have a car?
      Dave: Hell, no!

    • Dave: (to Larry) Now, look, Heidi was Mike's first girlfriend, so stop teasing him.
      Mike: Ha!
      Dave: (to Mike) And for all we know, Heidi could be Larry's last girlfriend, so you lay off.
      Larry: Ha ha! Hey, wait, what?

    • Dave: Now, who wants some fried rice?
      Larry: You know what? I don't want fried rice, because I have a girlfriend who really likes me, so I don't want fried rice.
      Mike: I bet if I made out with the fried rice first, then you'd want some.

    • Mike: So, Larry, who's next on your list of inappropriate dates? I'm sure Dad probably has some ex-girlfriends. Maybe they're available. But wait, why stop there? Why not go out with Hillary? You know, she has a car now, so...
      Larry: Hey, hey, Mike, did you ever have any trouble opening that double hook on Heidi's bra? Oh, wait, that's right, you never got that far.
      Mike: You know what? Neither did you, you liar.
      Larry: Yeah, that's right, I'm lying... lying down with your ex-girlfriend.

    • Dave: Sweetie, I forgot to tell you, we got you your own gas credit card.
      Hillary: Really?
      Dave: Hell, no!

    • Dave: All right, Betty, so, uh... how much you want for it?
      Grandma Betty: Dave, I don't know anything about cars. We're family. Just make me a fair offer.
      Dave: Okay. How about $2,500?
      Grandma Betty: How about you shove it up your ****ing ass!

    • Dave: Now all we have to do is find her a cheap, safe, used car that we can take away from her.
      Vicky: Yeah. Hey, my Mom mentioned that she wants to sell her car.
      Dave: I already took her daughter off her hands. When does it end?

    • Dave: Joe, you're brilliant. Where'd you come up with that one?
      Joe: They talked about it for 2 hours last week at that seminar on teenage insurance.
      Dave: Nah, I must have missed that.
      Joe: You sat next to me.
      Dave: You don't know what you're talking about.
      Joe: Jennifer with the curly hair and hot body gave the presentation.
      Dave: Oh, that was a good meeting.

    • Hillary: Isn't it pretty out? It's kind of the day when you realize you're just lucky to be alive.
      Dave: You're not getting a car.
      Hillary: What? I wasn't...
      Dave: What, what? What am I, an idiot? I've seen "deep and delightful" Hillary. I've seen "likes what I like" Hillary. And I've seen, "Ooh, Daddy, have you been working out?" Hillary. And none of you's are getting a car.
      Hillary: Aw, come on, Dad, I deserve one.
      Dave: Hillary, Hillary, your grades stink, you break curfew all the time, and you don't help out at all around here. I'm gonna give you keys to a car? No, you're lucky I don't run you over with a car.
