Hey Mom, can I borrow the car?

The theme of today's NYT crossword puzzle was "Teen's response to a parent's 'No" (that clue was used for 3 long-all the way across the grid-answers). As a parent of 5 teens and one soon to be teen, this was a slam dunk. The answers:

17A: But that's not fair
35A: Everyone is going
53A: I can't do anything

In all fairness to my teenages these answers were more likely to be used by me as a teen than by them.
