At the Stash, a customer walks in with a model car replica of K.I.T.T., the talking car from Knight Rider. Walt admits he's not personally a fan of the show, but Ming and the customer excitingly recite the tagline of the show: "A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist!" Walt passes on the sale and Ming admits he's always wanted the real K.I.T.T . The customer says he has something even cooler to show the guys and leads them outside to a life-size version of K.I.T.T., which he built himself. Ming activates the car with his voice and the car talks back. Though Ming passes on buying it for himself for $50,000, he happily accepts a joy ride around town.
A customer walks in with his collection of Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, including the very first issue which features a Neal Adams cover. The customer mentions he's into kung fu himself and shows off his moves - coming dangerously close to kicking Ming's face in the process. Walt is only interested in the first issue of the lot and the customer wants $30 for it. Walt comes back at $15 and they settle on $25.
A customer is looking for a vintage Green Arrow MEGO figure. Walt mentions how difficult they are to find. Unfortunately, the store doesn't have any in stock, but Walt thinks Rob Bruce might be able to help out and calls him up. Later, Rob comes in with the figure - complete with original accessories - and asks for $200 for it. The customer is hoping for something cheaper, so Rob comes down to $175. The customer comes back at $125, but Bruce can't go lower than $140. They call it a deal.
A customer stops by the shop with an anatomically correct baby doll of Joey Stivic, Archie Bunker's grandson on All in the Family. Walt deems it "the most unusual piece of television merchandise I've ever seen." Mike admits he owns a Joey doll himself. "It's never come up in conversation," he jokes. Walt is interested in the toy based on the oddity factor alone. The customer is hoping for $125. Walt suggests $80 instead and the customer gladly accepts. "Changing lives, right?" Walt says. "And diapers!" Mike adds.
