Benji: "I don't know. Why?"
Joel: "A cool name like Chevelle, when it could be worse. You could have a band named after a children's book about a little girl. A book you never even read. A book like Good Charlotte. And then you have to answer all these questions about why, what's the significance of your name, when you really don't know, you were just fifteen and you named the band. And now you're bigger."
Benji: "And you got a mohawk and tattoos and you're named after a little girl. It could be worse guys, Chevelle's an okay name."

Joel: "It's funny cause this is true."

Benji: "Alright, Let's play the video, The Donnas, 'Who Invited You'."
