  • The Arnold family car breaks down and Jack eventually decides to give in and buy a new car. However, the family have a difference of opinion with Jack on which car to but and how much the old car is really worth.

    I really liked this episode because it was a great example of one of my favourite characters - Jack Arnold. The way he growls whenever money is mentioned and is determined to fix and hang on to the old car really made me giggle. It was also lovely to see Norma and Jack in one of their 'couple moments' which I don't think we see enough of in the Wonder Years. It also paints a picture of the American suburbs in the 60's as I couldn't imagine anyone today getting excited about someone in their street buying a new car!
