The site of my new gig.

That's where I'm taking you.

I'm opening a store... computers.

Everybody wants to have one.

We love 'em.

Figured it made sense.

You're gonna have a computer store?

Mm-hmm.

Can I work there?

Yeah, don't see why not.

In fact, I will give you your first assignment right now.

I want you to come up with a name.

What? Stores need a name, right?

I can name it whatever I want?

All right, tell you what.

When we pull up, the first thing that comes into your mind, that'll be the name.

Really?

♪ ♪

Now, it's coming up here on the right.

Just keep those eyes on the road.

Now, I don't have the keys yet, so we can't go in.

I just closed on the place.

It's a bit of a fixer-upper, but it'll get there.

It's awesome.

Thought you'd like it.

Hey, uh, back there, what we talked about, let's just keep that between us, okay?

Don't even tell your mom.

Just our little secret.

♪ ♪

Good.

Now, you have work to do.

This place needs a name.

Now, remember, the first thing that pops into your mind.
