Owen Wilson & The Club

"I remember when I first got out here

[Los Angeles]," Owen Wilson recalled, "and, aah, you know how people tell you, 'Owen, you gotta be careful, like about your car getting ripped off,' and, 'You're in Los Angeles'? ... So I had a Club [a lock which prevents the steering wheel from turning] for my car and I went to this party with a friend and over the course of the night -- and it was kind of a good party -- and somehow I lost the key to the Club. But I still had my car keys, and we get down to the car and... you know, we didn't have a lot of money and stuff when we first got out here, and he's like, 'Well, you know it's kind of' -- it was up on Franklin; we were trying to get down to Wilshire -- and so it was like you know, 'It's almost a straight shot, if you go...' Like, you've just got to make that one turn on Sunset there and then get on to Highland and if you open the car door while you're going, you could wrench the wheel to get it -- like a right turn, kind of. And so it was like late at night and I was like, 'I think you're right, man! We can do it!' And, aah, and then we start -- we didn't even make the first turn -- that first turn on from Franklin on to Hollywood there. It couldn't make that turn there, so we had to leave it on the curb, and, aah, we got two wheels up on the curb and thank God the police didn't come and stuff and, you know, we went home and, aah, managed to retrieve it later with another key."
