Arms crossed over his chest, Jack glared through the SUV’s windscreen and huffed in annoyance. “What’s taking so long?”

“It’s called a traffic jam, Jack,” Ianto said patiently. “You know what rush hour’s like.”

“Why do people call it that anyway? How can it be a rush when nobody’s moving?”

“Because everyone’s in a rush to leave work and get home, resulting in nobody getting anywhere fast.”

“Hmpf. It should be called the staying in one place hour. I’m bored.” Jack slid further down in his seat, then back up again a moment later as an idea occurred to him. “Wait a minute, what’re we doing? We don’t have to sit here like everyone else; we have lights and sirens. Flick those on and everyone will have to get out of our way! We’ll be at the Hub in no time!”

Ianto looked at the cars surrounding them on all sides and rolled his eyes. “Even if I was to do that, which I won’t because it would be unethical since we’re not responding to an emergency, exactly where do you think the other cars could go to get out of our way?”

“Told you we need a flying car.”

The End


Jack needs to get Tosh right on to that ... as soon as they get out of the traffic.
Because a flying car is just what a super sevret organisation needs in order to remain inconspicuous ;)

Thank you!

Well, they could stencil "Police" on its underside instead of "Torchwood" - it's not like the police will ever be able to catch up and book them.
Heehee! Then of course the police would wonder how they can get one of their own. They'd be jealous.
OL traffic jams are no fun thats for sure
They're so boring, especially if you're the one behind the wheel.

Thank you!
Both are right. Knowing Jack, he;ll think of a way to pass the time
Preferably NOT by distracting the driver ;)

Thank you!

I'm disappointed that Jack didn't suggest "other things" they might be doing in the car to pass the time. There's a perfectly good back seat and tinted windows going to waste.

He's tried that before, but Ianto threatened him with dire consequences ;)

Thank you!
