[The feed opens onto a view of a kitchen in De Chima, and—a Roomba. The Roomba that's come with this particular household, in fact, whirring cheerfully away. It doesn't actually seem to be cleaning, however: in fact, it's just soaking up the sunlight by the window, like a cat.

This is already weird enough by itself, but clearly the person shooting this video has other plans. The camera turns, to reveal Veronica Sawyer.]


So I noticed this little—what was it called, a Roomba? It's started following me around lately, which is really weird but kinda cute. [She smiles a little.] I just came home and saw it like this.

[She turns the camera around again, to focus on said Roomba. It is now making an odd whirring noise that could easily be construed as a mechanical version of a purr. Then she turns the video back on herself.]

Anyone feel like helping me name a semi-sentient vacuum cleaner that thinks it's a cat? Personally I'm leaning towards Fluffy, but I'm open to suggestions.

That's a Roomba, yeah. My mom used to have one until it broke down. I called it Zita after the patron saint of cleaning - not that 'm Catholic, just from a Catholic city.

Still, it zooms around. Zee might work. [He shrugs, lightly.] Or you could go all dramatic and name it after a movie character. Serial killer or superhero or something. Always a classic, there.

Vacuum cleaners still exist back home, but Roombas are handier and people are lazy. [He shrugs lightly; he never got the love of cute things some people had, but hey, there's far worst things to like.]

Hmm. Gizmo's more of a guy's name. Are we thinking the Roomba's a boy or a girl? Call me racist but they all look the same to me.

[ Someone needs help naming something? How could Cisco not respond? ]

Never named a roomba before. Even one that doesn't act like a roomba should.

[ And for once, he's coming up short. All roomba-related names ate just plain terrible, and any cat-centric names don't really apply. Time to resort to acronyms. ]

How about PIRR? Pet Imitating Robotic Roomba.

[archie is still pleased he got a chance to name the pool cleaner at the high school, even if everyone thinks "relicanth" is a weird name.

look, it's old, okay.]

I think Fluffy is a great name.

[Funny name to begin with, though. Why call it a Roomba?]

What's a vacuum cleaner, anyway?

[Sorry, Ronnie, she's been too busy researching how to make drinks for her new job. Also interviewing potential bartenders. Phew.]

I think I'm going to like it here, after all.

[A chuckle. She hates cleaning.]

Just out of curiosity, where can I find one of these things?

Now, if you're going for Fluffy, you're going to have to redecorate him a little so he lives up to his namesake. Maybe you could cover him in feathers.

[ A beat. ]

And you can never go wrong with some glitter.
