Don't go to a radio shack, go to a real electronics place, you know. Little hole in the wall place, dimly lit, place is packed with stuff. Guys standing around behind counter with cigarettes hanging out of their mouths. Ashtrays overflowing. at least one of them has magnifying visor on his forehead. From the back room, through a worn oilcloth curtain, you can hear the "hum" of heavy electrical equipment... there is a slight blue glow from beneath the curtain. Joe pulls the cigarette butt from his nicotine stained hands and flips it expertly into a "Sylvania" ashtray... it bounces once and lands on the worn change mat. "Capacitors, eh?... you must own an E34. Had a guy in yesterday, same problem, same capacitor"! "Jimmy... take him over to aisle 3, beside the Lucas generators......"
