How to start your classic when you, ahem, misplace your key

Reminds me of a date night with my girlfriend back in college.
I borrowed a buddy’s car, which IIRC was a beat up Toyota wagon
and we drove into a secluded park and _______you fill in the blank.
When it came to going home, the wagon wouldn’t start. I looked under
the hood and noticed a detached wire. I really had no idea what I was
doing, but reattached it to it’s nearest logical point and it started!
Embarrassment averted!
