Misery is being lost in the parking structure of the Beverly Center for 45 minutes by yourself. Tired. Hungry. Drained. With tears running down your face. Hoping, just hoping for a miracle and then ....

You see it. Your white Hyundai Tiburon hidden behind a corner. Could this long, torturous journey really be over? You see a USC license plate - it's your car! - with all those scratches, dents and marks on the driver's side from running into the same stupid pole in your parking garage. And yet, in this very moment your car has never looked so majestic, so sleek and so beautiful in it's entire life.
