What item or knowledge has saved you in a car-related bind?

I am the proud new owner of a used car, and while I have a few 'emergency' items like jumper cables, a scissor jack, and flashlight, I'd like to have a better idea of what I might need in case of various situations that might crop up.
In addition to tangible items, what should I learn to do before I need to do it? I'm arranging to learn how to do an oil change, and I'm going to brush up on tire-changing.
