Sonny: You give her my test. You give her the door test.
C: What’s the door test?
Sonny: Before you get out of the car, you lock both doors. You get out of the car, you walk over to her. You bring her over to the car, take out the key, put in the lock, open the door for her.

If she doesn’t reach over and lift up that button for you, so you can get in, dump her.
