I dont know if the fact that he has 3 kids and a dog is a valid justification for owning a eco-monster eyesore of a car like an expedition. Some people in Europe (or anywhere other than N. America, really) have 3+ kids and a dogs and somehow manage to move everything they need around with more effieciency then 10MPG. Why not a station wagon, or even a smaller 4-cylinder SUV. That would haul things around, save them money and help them shake the stigma of being an giant SUV-driving *****.

I love the show but trying to justify your bosses unreasonably-sized car is laaaame.
