Honey, the car antenna's not working anymore.
Don't worry I can fix it.

to replace it.
If you have anything around the house that needs fixing, make sure no males living there get to see this show. EVER. They'll think they can fix it even if it means ripping out the entire wall and they have no other tool to use except a dirty sock
