An Amish boy and his father visit a mall. They're amazed by almost everything they see, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that move apart and back together again. The boy asks his father, "What is this, Father?" The father responds, "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life. I don't know what it is." While the boy and his father watch wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheelchair rolls up to the moving walls and presses a button. The walls open and the lady rolls between them into a small room. The walls close and the boy and his father watch small circles of lights with numbers above the walls light up. They continue to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction. The walls open up again and a beautiful young woman steps out. "Son," the father says, "go get your mother."
