Plot: Red shows off a talking GPS device that he is giving as a gift to Harold (so that he could drive to his parents' house), on which he already programs the destination. He has just finished wrapping it up when Harold walks in with a basket full of items, including his gift to Red, a book about sustainability in life titled "The Better Man" (which Red thinks is the GPS' manual at first). But when Harold unwraps the GPS, it starts making duck noises, which annoys Red to the point that he hits it with his new book. Afterwards, Red leaves his book in an outhouse, while Harold's GPS begins talking unusual words. Red then tries to repair it and it is then revealed that his book is being used to keep the table the GPS is on stable. Red then offers Harold to drive up to his parents' house, but Harold tells him that he is taking Bonnie along because she's an expert at directions, to which Red agrees with.
