A couple come to see Ashley to pawn her ring that is stuck on her finger. Ashley gives her lotion to try to loosen it, but it still does not come off. She then tells Ashley she is going to sue her because of the lotion, and because she claims that Ashley tried to pull the ring off. The two received the escort out of the door.

A woman with pink hair and a colorful neon shirt comes to see Les. She wants to sell her flute for $100, but Les would not give her more than $20 because it was just a student model. Sorry, no deal today.
