Complaining about his problems with the lighthouse, Willie Gerkin says "This is SO not the way "The Secret" is supposed to work!" 'The Secret' is a self-help book by Rhonda Byrne that concentrates in part on the way positive thinking is supposedly meant to bring wealth into one's life, just like the windfall in Gerkin's life that the lighthouse represents.
