- LOOKS LIKE A GIR--GIRL ROOM.
THOSE COULD BE GOOD, THOSE COULD BE BAD.
BUT I DON'T THINK THIS ONE'S FOR ME.
- IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE A LOCKER FOR ME.
IT'S ALL TORN UP AND THERE'S JUST A LOT OF STUFF IN HERE.
THIS IS A LOT OF CRAP.
THIS LOCKER'S NOT FOR ME.
- I SEE A LOT OF STUFF.
LIKE THEY USED A SNOW BLOWER TO PUT THEIR STUFF IN THERE, BUT IT HAPPENS.
YOU KNOW, THIS UNIT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS PACKED IN A REAL HURRY.
POSSIBLY, THEY MIGHT HAVE OVERLOOKED SOME VALUABLES.

THAT'S WHERE SOCIAL SECURITY GIVES ME THE EDGE.
- THIS ONE'S VERY DIFFICULT TO TELL WHAT'S IN HERE, AND THEY'VE GOT A BIG MATTRESS AND COUCH RIGHT IN FRONT.
BUT IT'S JUST NOT, UH, CLEAN ENOUGH FOR ME.
- WELL, LET'S JUST SAY, THIS IS LIKE A BEDBUG PLAYGROUND.
I MEAN, IT'S ALL BEDS.
HEY, NO KIDDING ASIDE, PEOPLE DIE OF BEDBUG BITES AT MY AGE.
- IT DOES NOT GO BACK VERY FAR.
ALL RIGHT, DON'T LAUGH, BUT I FEEL LIKE I'M HAVING ONE OF JARROD'S "FEELINGS" ON THIS LOCKER.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S IN THERE, BUT IT FEELS PRETTY GOOD.
- I'M BACK AT THE LOCKER.
I JUST PAID I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT'S UNDER THESE BLANKETS.
ALL RIGHT.
A COFFEE TABLE.
LOOK AT THIS THING.
COME ON.
WHO WRAPS UP CHEAP FURNITURE? GONNA BE HONEST WITH YOU HERE.
- OH, BOY.
- THAT'S A HUNK OF [bleep].
SO FAR, THIS LOCKER'S TURNING OUT TO BE HORRIBLE.
YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME.
YOU CAN'T EVEN GET A DOLLAR FOR THAT.
- WHY--WHY'D YOU EVEN BUY THIS? - BRANDON, NOT EVERY ONE OF 'EM IS GONNA BE RIGHT.
JUST DO THE WORK, OKAY? YOU THINK I'M HAPPY WITH IT? $175 [bleep]ING BLANKETS.
THIS IS A PILE OF CRAP.
GRAB THIS.
WE'RE--THIS IS JUST GONNA GO RIGHT IN THE DUMPSTER.
I'M JUST GONNA BUST THIS STUFF UP AND HAUL IT TO THE TRASH.
ONE, TWO, THREE.
[clatter] [clatter] - LET OUT SOME OF THAT $200 AGGRESSION.
- IT FEELS GOOD.
I JUST WANT TO GET BACK TO THE CASINO AND FORGET I EVEN BOUGHT THIS LOCKER.
YOU KNOW WHAT? LET ME AT LEAST LOOK IN HERE.
SOME LITTLE PIC 'N' SAVE FLOWER VASE OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
WELL, THEY'VE GOT A NAME ON THEM.
ARE THEY BLUE OR PURPLE? - I DON'T KNOW.
- IT'S LIKE THEY'RE CHANGING COLOR ON ME.
YOU KNOW, YOU'RE GONNA LAUGH, BUT IF I CAN GET, UH, IF I CAN GET 30, I'M GONNA BE A HAPPY CAMPER.
- DUDE, I THINK IF WE GET FIVE BUCKS, WE'D BE HAPPY.
YOU KNOW, MY DAD WOULD PROBABLY TELL YOU HIS SOCKS ARE VALUABLE.
I'LL BUY YOU LUNCH IF I'M WRONG, BUT I THINK THAT'S ONLY, LIKE, A $5 VASE, DUDE.
- PSSH! THAT'S A GIVEAWAY.
JUST 'CAUSE IT'S PURPLE, IT'S WORTH $20.
I THINK THESE VASES ARE SOMETHING.
THE BOTTOMS ARE GROUND FLAT.
THIS IS A REAL NICE, HEAVY VASE.
I KNOW THEY'VE GOT TO BE WORTH SOMETHING.
- I THINK VEGAS IS DEFINITELY AFFECTING HIS JUDGMENT.
YOU PUT THE VASE AWAY.
I'LL GO PUT THIS AWAY, AND I'LL GET READY FOR YOU BUYING ME LUNCH.
- FINE.
GET OUT OF HERE.
[big band music] - I BOUGHT THIS ONE ON A HUNCH, 'CAUSE IT KIND OF LOOKED LIKE SOMEONE LEFT TOWN QUICKLY.
SO I'M HOPING THEY MAY HAVE LEFT SOME GOOD STUFF BEHIND.
IT'S ONE THING TO BUY IT.
IT'S ANOTHER THING TO COME BACK TO IT AND YOU REALIZE, WOW, THERE'S A LOT OF STUFF HERE.
GET INTO IT A LITTLE BIT.
AH, HERE WE GO.
OLD GLORY.
OH, BOY.
A PAIR OF LUCITE SHOES.
THEY'RE MY SIZE.
TERRIFIC.
WE CAN'T FIT ALL OF THIS IN THE CAR, AND WE'VE GOT QUITE A DRIVE BACK TO, UH, TO LOS ANGELES, SO THAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN AN OVERSIGHT ON MY PART.
SO FAR, I DON'T EVEN SEE MY INITIAL INVESTMENT BACK YET.
I'M NOT FINDING ANYTHING IN HERE.
WOW.
I REMEMBER THESE AS A KID.
MY MOTHER USED TO COLLECT THESE STAMPS, AND THEY-- THEY'D GIVE 'EM AWAY WHEN YOU GOT GASOLINE OR SOMETHING, AND YOU'D PUT THEM IN A BOOK AND GET A TOASTER OR WHATNOT.
IT'S GOT TO BE 40 YEARS OLD.
EVEN OLDER.
THIS SIGN COULD BE INTERESTING.
THE REST OF THIS LOCKER AND, FRANKLY, THE WHOLE WEEK, HAS JUST REALLY BEEN A BUST.
I'M DEBATING WHETHER TO TAKE THE DISCO STRIPPER SHOES.
NAH.
I THINK I'LL LEAVE 'EM HERE.
THIS SIGN MIGHT BE MY LAST HOPE TO TURN THINGS AROUND.
- WHILE THESE OTHER LAZY ASSES WERE SLEEPING IN, I WAS OUT, MAKING BANK.
YEP! I BOUGHT THIS UNIT FOR ABOUT HALF OF WHAT I WOULD PAY FOR IT IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, AND I'M EXCITED TO GET IN HERE.
YOU'RE ABOUT READY TO COME INTO MY WORLD RIGHT HERE.
WHEN THIS ROOM OPENED UP, THE FIRST THING I NOTICED WAS THAT IT WAS PROFESSIONALLY PACKED.
THEY SPENT MORE TO MOVE THIS UNIT THAN I PAID FOR THE UNIT.
THAT TELLS ME THERE'S GOOD MERCHANDISE.
YOU CAN JUST LOOK AT EVERYTHING.
EVERYTHING'S NICE AND CLEAN AND LAUNDERED.
NO DUST.
IT'S JUST AS PERFECT AS IT GETS.
NOW, I CAN ONLY SEE INTO THE FIRST 15 FEET.
THERE'S 15 FEET BACK THERE, AND YOU KNOW WHAT'S BACK THERE? NOTHING BUT BENJAMINS IS BACK THERE.
EVERYTHING I SEE FROM HERE IS CLEAN.
I MEAN, YOU'VE GOT A LAPTOP BAG RIGHT HERE.
THE LAPTOP'S RIGHT HERE.
THERE'S A COUPLE HUNDRED DOLLARS IN NIGHTSTANDS.
YOU KNOW, $75 CHAIRS RIGHT HERE.
A $50 LADDER.
HERE'S ANOTHER NIGHTSTAND, SO THAT TELLS ME NOW THAT THERE'S TWO BEDROOM SETS IN HERE, BECAUSE THAT'S PART OF ANOTHER ONE THERE.
YOU KNOW, THAT'S THE SOUND OF CRYSTAL RIGHT THERE.
I MEAN, I SEE AN ENTIRE SOFA SET.
A SECTIONAL SET.
UM, COFFEE TABLE.
IT JUST GETS BETTER BY THE MINUTE HERE.
OH, HERE WE GO.
I SEE A LOT OF CLEAN, SHARP UPHOLSTERY.
A BIG, NICE CARPET.
THIS WAS A BIG HOME.
THAT CARPET COVERS A BIG AREA.
LAZY PEOPLE DON'T GET FAR IN THIS BUSINESS.
YOU GOTTA BE ACTIVE, YOU GOTTA GET UP EARLY, YOU GOTTA DO YOUR HOMEWORK.
GET 'EM READY AND GET 'EM SENT, OKAY? WHILE DARRELL DOZES, DAVID CLOSES.
- WE'RE BACK AT THE LOCKER WE PAID 200 BUCKS FOR.
BRANDI SAID SHE HAD A FEELING ABOUT THIS.
I DON'T KNOW.
IT LOOKS LIKE A BUNCH OF TRASH TO ME.
SKETCHY.
- UNFORTUNATELY, OUR GUYS AREN'T HERE WITH US IN VEGAS, SO WE-- [gasps] CAREFUL.
- APPRECIATE THE HELP.
- ANYTIME.
I MEAN, JARROD IS GONNA HAVE TO CLEAN OUT THIS LOCKER.
- THE EASIEST WAY TO GET RID OF SOMETHING IS TO GIVE IT TO SOMEONE ELSE, SO IF I CATCH CRABS FROM THIS MATTRESS, SHE'LL BE THE FIRST TO KNOW.
YOU THINK THE COMPUTER'S IN THAT BOX RIGHT THERE? - YES.
- DAMN IT.
MORE HOUSEHOLD [bleep].
- YEAH.
THAT'S NICE.
- THAT'S A NICE MIRROR.
- YEAH.
- 40, 50 BUCKS.
- THAT MATTRESS IS COMING DOWN.
- GO AHEAD, DROP IT.
- I MIGHT.
[groans] - [laughs] YOU GOT THAT? - SHUT UP.
IT'S KITCHEN STUFF.
- YOU KNOW, EVEN THOUGH WE'RE NOT REALLY FINDING ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, WE'VE GOT THIS REALLY NICE CRIB RIGHT HERE.
IT'S A NICE ONE, SO, I MEAN, WE'RE GONNA MAKE SOME MONEY ON THIS UNIT NO MATTER WHAT.
- IT'S NICE OF JARROD TO TRY TO CHEER ME UP, BUT I THINK I REALLY BLEW IT THIS TIME.
- AND THE COUCH ALONE IS PROBABLY WORTH 100 BUCKS, SO ARE THERE BATTERIES OR ANYTHING FOR THESE, UH, CAMCORDERS? - J.
M.
- WHAT? - 200 BUCKS, SO ARE THERE BATTERIES OR ANYTHING FOR THESE, UH, CAMCORDERS? - J.
M.
- WHAT? WHAT? - LOOK.
- 100 BUCKS? LET ME SEE.
GET 'EM OUT.
DUMP 'EM OUT.
LET'S CHECK THOSE OUT.
- I JUST FOUND CASINO CHIPS.
HOLY [bleep].
- NICE.
250 RIGHT THERE.
THAT PAYS FOR THE UNIT RIGHT THERE.
THAT'S ALL PROFIT.
THOSE POKER CHIPS JUST MADE THIS A HOME RUN.
ALL THIS OTHER STUFF, THIS IS JUST GRAVY NOW.
WHAT CAN I SAY? BRANDI HAD A FEELING ON THIS UNIT AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT PAID OFF.
[jazzy music] - AH, IT'S JUST BEEN A LOUSY WEEK FOR ME, SO I'M TAKING THIS NEON SIGN TO GET IT APPRAISED.
THERE IT IS, THERE IT IS, THERE IT IS.
HOPEFULLY IT'S WORTH SOMETHING.
- MY NAME IS DANIELLE KELLY.
I'M THE OPERATIONS MANAGER HERE AT THE NEON MUSEUM BONEYARD.
- DANIELLE IS THE GAL THAT RUNS THE BONEYARD.
- [clears throat] - THE NEON BONEYARD.
YOU MUST BE DANIELLE.
- YOU MUST BE BARRY.
- I AM, AND YOU'RE GONNA LOVE WHAT I BROUGHT YOU.
- YEAH? I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT.
SO WHAT IS THIS SIGN YOU HAVE? - I'M A CAPRICORN.
- I'M A SAGITTARIUS.
- ARE YOU? - THIS SHOULD GO WELL.
- WELL, THIS IS AN S&H GREEN STAMPS SIGN.
- YEAH.
- AND YOU KNOW WHAT? UH, I LOOKED AT IT AS A TICKET TO COME SEE YOU.
I MEAN IT.
MY WEEK MIGHT HAVE JUST GOTTEN A LITTLE BETTER.
- WELL, THIS IS A NICE NEON SIGN, BUT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE SOME REAL NEON SIGNS? - AH, YEAH, I WOULD.
COME ON, LET'S GO.
- FOLLOW ME.
THIS IS LAS VEGAS' ART FORM.
- THIS MOULIN ROUGE SIGN, I SAW IT WHEN I CAME IN, AND, UH, IT'S JUST GREAT.
- THE MOULIN ROUGE WAS THE FIRST, UH, INTEGRATED CASINO RESORT IN LAS VEGAS.
- REALLY? IT'S KIND OF EXCITING TO SEE SOMEBODY YOUNGER THAT'S ACTUALLY INTO THIS OLD, COOL, COLLECTIBLE STUFF THAT I LIKE.
- UM, THE SIGN ITSELF, UH, WAS DESIGNED BY BETTY WILLIS.
- AND SHE'S A WAY COOL CHICK, THIS GIRL.
I ENJOYED BEING ENLIGHTENED, NO PUN INTENDED.
- OOH.
[laughs] - AH, THIS IS GREAT.
JUST TERRIFIC.
- WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS CACTUS IS, UM, THIS IS ALL GALVANIZED STEEL.
THIS KIND OF COVERS WHERE NEON USED TO SIT ON THE SIGN.
- ONE OF THE GUYS ON THE CREW SAID THOSE ARE PEEP HOLES.
- WELL, MOVING ON.
- I ENJOY MAKING NEW FRIENDS, AND I MADE ONE WHEN I MET DANIELLE.
I WANT TO THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE TIME AND FOR SHOWING US AROUND, BUT I GOTTA ASK YOU, AND I'M A LITTLE BIT EMBARRASSED.
- [laughs] - [laughs] WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE ONE I BROUGHT? - [laughs] - DON'T LOOK AT ME LIKE THAT.
- WELL, BARRY, UM - DO YOU THINK I'M UPSIDE DOWN ON THIS DEAL OR WHAT? SINCE THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE PRIZED PIECES FROM IT.
- I THINK--I THINK YOU'RE UPSIDE DOWN, BARRY, ON THIS PARTICULAR DEAL.
- THIS WEEK, I DIDN'T FIND THE ULTIMATE COLLECTIBLE.
- YOU LOVE IT.
YOU SHOULD TAKE IT BACK.
- NO, HONEY, I DONATED THIS TO THE NEON MUSEUM.
- NO, REALLY.
- BUT I THINK I MIGHT HAVE FOUND SOMETHING A LITTLE BETTER.
YOU KNOW, DANIELLE WAS REALLY SHE WAS, UH, UH, UH, THERE'S NO WAY TO EXPLAIN THIS WITHOUT SOUNDING PERVY.
- GOOD LUCK.
- WE FOUND THESE VASES, AND BRANDON DOESN'T BELIEVE THAT THEY'RE WORTH ANYTHING, BUT I'M GONNA TAKE IT OVER TO THIS ANTIQUE DEALER IN VEGAS, AND I'M GONNA PROVE THIS KID WRONG.
- SO I GUESS TODAY WE FIND OUT IF I BUY YOU LUNCH OR NOT, HUH? - YEP.
OH, WOW.
VERY COOL.
- YEAH, THIS IS A COOL PLACE.
- SOME OF THE STUFF IN THIS SHOP IS PROBABLY UPWARDS OF AROUND $100,000 TO $150,000, JUST TAKING A PEEK AT IT, SO THIS GUY'S GOTTA KNOW HIS STUFF.
- PETER? - YES.
- HEY, I'M DARRELL.
I TALKED TO YOU ON THE TELEPHONE.
HOW ARE YOU DOING? - NICE TO SEE YOU.
- WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE IT? - SET IT DOWN ON THE TABLE OVER HERE.
- ALL RIGHT.
COOL PLACE, MAN.
LOTS OF COOL STUFF IN HERE, PAL.
- YEAH.
- YOU KNOW, I-I WANT TO BUY SOMETHING.
LOOK AT THESE.
- THESE ARE MOSER VASES.
UH, THEY'RE FROM THE 1980s.
AND WHEN THEY'RE MADE, WHEN THEY POUR THE GLASS, THEY PUT A MINERAL CALLED ALEXANDRITE IN THEM, WHICH GIVES THEM THIS PURPLE HUE.
AND IF WE COULD GET A REAL BRIGHT LIGHT AND SHINE A LIGHT ON THESE, THEY WOULD EVEN CHANGE COLOR A LITTLE BIT.
- REALLY? - REALLY? - YEAH.
- NOW, WE HAD A BET GOING.
I SAID THESE ARE, LIKE, YOU KNOW, $5 VASES.
- WELL, THIS SMALL ONE, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, COULD BRING UP TO, UH $500.
- $500? - $500.
- AND YOU SAID? - $5.
YEAH, I KNOW.
OKAY.
I OWE YOU LUNCH.
- YOU'RE GONNA OWE HIM DINNER AFTER THIS ONE, 'CAUSE THIS IS PROBABLY $1,000 TO $1,200.
- [laughs] YEAH, BABY.
- ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT.
- NOW YOU'RE GONNA OWE HIM A WEEK'S VACATION ON THIS ONE, WHICH IS AROUND $1,500.
- $1,500.
THAT'S $3,200 FOR THESE? - LET'S SAY $3,000 TO BE CONSERVATIVE.
- YOU COULD SAY $2,000, I'D BE HAPPY.
TO ME, THIS IS SWEETNESS.
I NOW LOVE MOSER.
AND A LITTLE LADY LUCK, YOU JUST CAN'T LOSE.
NOW I CAN GO PLAY A LITTLE MORE BLACKJACK.
- WELL, I GUESS I GOTTA TAKE HIM OUT TO ANOTHER FANCY RED LOBSTER DINNER TONIGHT.
CHALK ONE UP FOR DARRELL.
[jazzy music] [lively guitar music] - SINCE WE FOUND THESE CHIPS, I GOT DRESSED UP.
JARROD'S WEARING HIS BLACK SHORTS.
SO WE'RE GONNA HAVE A NIGHT ON THE TOWN.
- GO.
LET'S GO.
- HI.
- GOOD MORNING.
- HOW ARE YOU? - ALL RIGHT, LET'S GET THE MONEY.
MAKE IT LOOK LIKE MORE THAN IT REALLY IS.
- YOU LOOK SO SERIOUS.
- I AM SERIOUS.
I'M COUNTING MY MONEY.
- SO SERIOUS.
- NICE, NICE.
THANK YOU.
- YOU'RE WELCOME.
- LET ME GET THAT.

DAVE HESTER SCORED 1,800 BUCKS WITH HIS HOUSEHOLD UNIT.
JARROD AND BRANDI CASHED $500 IN CASINO CHIPS.
AND BARRY WEISS MADE A FRIEND.
WITH THE AUCTIONS OVER, TIME TO BLOW OFF SOME STEAM.
- DO WE WANT TO START OUT SMALL AND WORK OUR WAY UP TO THAT ONE? - UM, NO, I'D LIKE TO DO THAT ONE FIRST.
- ALL RIGHT, LET'S DO IT.
- JUST WANT TO GO BALLS OUT.
- ANY PARTICULAR TARGETS? - I LIKE THE MULLET ONE.
- I THINK I WENT TO HIGH SCHOOL WITH THAT GUY.
- [laughs] - I THINK I USED TO DATE THAT GUY.
- OH! [gunshots] - GOOD JOB.
- IT'S MY EX-BOYFRIEND.
- IT'S YOUR NEXT BOYFRIEND.
- HE'S THE KIND OF GUY THAT'LL KNOCK YOU UP IN THE BACK SEAT OF A CAMARO.
- AND THEN HE'LL ASK YOU FOR SOME GAS MONEY SO HE CAN GET HOME.
- TOTALLY.
