Dad: Your mom and I made it down here without a hitch! We're pretty wiped out, so we'll probably unpack the trailer in the morning.
Me: How'd you tow the trailer all the way down there without a hitch?!?!
Dad: Well played..

They were gonna use a trailer but their hitch set-up didn't have the right electronics for the trailer lights. They ended up just bringing the couch in the bed of a friend's truck.

CW: "Well, that went off without a hitch!"
Me: "No there's a hitch, right there!" (as i pointed at the truck's hitch)
