Buy More. All of the employees are gathered -- looking far less drunk then they should at this point -- surveying the disaster. And it truly is a disaster. Morgan gives them a pep talk, though, and they go to work: cleaning in fast motion, finishing up right before Big Mike walks in. When I watched this the first time, it made me think of Weird Science, but forum posters made me realize it's a definite homage to Risky Business. To be fair, both movies have the cleanup at the end, right as the parents return. But, like Risky Business, the Buy More staff cleans themselves instead of having a computer-generated model do the job (though, with the Buy More geeks, that would have been a possibility). Big Mike comes in, all impressed with the store. Lester runs to Big Mike's office because he forgot about the marlin. But Morgan's already glued it back together and hung it back on the wall. Lester's touched that Morgan did this for him. Morgan tells him to man up; that he was just doing his job. Big Mike comes in and congratulates Lester on all of his accomplishments; the sales totals, the employees being on time, the clean store. But, like the egg at the end of Risky Business, Big Mike's marlin is cracking on the wall. Lester quickly says he can't handle the pressure and quits his management post. He rushes out just as the nose falls, and Big Mike yells, "Norman!"
Chuck is giving Sarah a cheap frozen burger to put on her eye, and he even sprang for a second cooked one for her enjoyment. He says he guesses her secret is that she used to be just a normal high school student. But we flash back to see what happened directly after she dug up the money box: General Candyman walks up and asks who she is and tells us all of the names she's gone by in all of the places she's lived. Then he tells her he can save her life, with the CIA. (Is this a CIA commercial?) And the rest is history. Or a future episode. I hope we at least get to find out what her dad was up to, and why she had so many secret identities even before the CIA. Her dad must have been into something big and bad, and I hope that's important somehow. General Candyman gives her "Sarah Walker" as an identity. Back in the present, she tells Chuck she'll answer one question about her past, but he says he doesn't need to know. He already knows the real person she is. I like that he realizes this, even though he just told her he'd never really know her. It's inconsistent, but also really cute, so I'll go ahead and forgive. And then they share a cheeseburger. That she cuts with her awesome hidden leg knife. Chuck is a little frightened.
