Joy Ride is episode 19b of season 3 of Kuu Kuu Harajuku.
When R.O.D. gets a hard drive malfunction and is temporarily unable to drive the Tour Bus, Baby is eager to replace him as the bus driver. While Baby is practicing her driving skills, the rest of HJ5 and the Tour Bus are driven away by an returning enemy seeking revenge for his past defeats.
Rudie: Now remember, when we get to Bottomless Canyon Stadium, the most important thing is, don’t fall into the Bottomless Canyon.
Love: You really think you need to remind us of that?
Baby (writing note): Don’t….fall….in.
Love: Yep, that’s what I thought, CPU flu.
ROD: Nonsense, I’ll be fine if you all stop spinning.
Angel: We’re not spinning ROD.
ROD: Oh dear.
Rudie: We need to catch up. Try not stepping on the brake so much.
Baby: But I don’t want the brake pedal to feel left out. Good job brake, your turn gas.
Rudie groans and facepalms.
- The title of this episode is a reference to joy riding, recklessly driving a vehicle around for fun.
- Under the laws of driving, a newly licensed driver such as Baby would never be allowed to drive a vehicle in the Tour Bus weight category, as it requires at least 10 years of practical experience with vehicles leading up to this weight class.
