Her mission:  Get the Volvo started.
Obstacles:  It’s hot.  She doesn’t know what state the battery is in.  It’s almost (or is) out of gas.

She is working that pedal good in her cowgirl boots!  She tries and tries to get the Volvo started before thinking it needs gas.  The gauge is on ‘E’.  She gets the gas can, puts some gas in it and goes back to starting the car.  This time, she does a lot of pumping before turning the key to try and get the gas from the tank to the carburetor.
