The T-800 arrived 1995 in Acton near a bar called "The Corral", where he acquired clothing and a motorcycle from Robert Pantelli. He also took a shotgun and a pair of sunglasses from the bar's owner. After procuring these items, the T-800 stepped off the patio into the camera's view to the tune of George Thoroghgood's Bad to the Bone.
