He had to get out to get under (The automobile).
Apparently he has a few choice words about whats going on underneath that the fair maiden doesnt want to hear!
My first thought was she reminded me of Iola from "Mama's Family". Don't know where that came from.

Is she holding her ears from all the cussing coming from under the car?
