Oddities (2010–…): Season 3, Episode 15 - full transcript

WELCOME TO THE WEIRD
WORLD OF "ODDITIES."

WHAT IS THIS OVER HERE?

OH, THAT IS A HUMAN HAND.

OH, MY GOD.

LOOK AT THAT.

IT'S NICE TO TOUCH
IT AND HOLD IT.

IT'S A LITTLE GRISLY.

MY FRIEND NEEDS A SPECIAL ITEM.

WHO IS THIS MYSTERIOUS WOMAN?

HER NAME IS CASSANDRA PETERSON.

ELVIRA.



THE MISTRESS OF THE DARK.

CASSANDRA PETERSON.

THAT'S WHO IT IS.

WOW.

THERE'S NO TRICK
OR GIMMICK TO IT.

YOU BALANCE YOUR WEIGHT
PERFECTLY OR YOU CUT YOURSELF.

OH, MY GOD.

OBSCURA AIN'T YOUR
GRANDMOTHER'S ANTIQUE SHOP.

WHOA!

WELL, UNLESS YOUR GRANDMA'S
A BIT OF A KOOK.

IS THAT A STRAITJACKET?

I'M MIKE.

AND I'M EVAN.

Both:



WE'VE SPENT OUR ENTIRE LIVES... COLLECTING
AND DEALING... HUNTING AND PICKING...

TO GET THIS BUSINESS...
DOWN TO A SCIENCE.

THIS IS "ODDITIES."

IT'S OUR FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR.

WE GET TO PACK UP AND HEAD WEST
ON OUR ANNUAL LOS ANGELES TRIP.

FRED ASTAIRE!

LOOK AT THAT.

HE HAD SMALL HANDS.

CALIFORNIA'S ALWAYS KNOWN FOR THE
SURF, THE SAND, THE CELEBRITIES,

BUT WE'VE ALSO FOUND
ITS REALLY WEIRD SIDE.

HEY. WHAT'S UP, MAN?

RYAN'S OFF ON HIS OWN, DEALING WITH
SOME OF HIS COLLECTOR FRIENDS,

HOPEFULLY FINDING SOME
GOOD STUFF FOR THE SHOP.

AND EVAN AND I ARE MAKING A SPECIAL
DELIVERY TO A VERY GOOD FRIEND

AND CLIENT, TIFFANY.

HELLO.

HEY, TIFFANY.

IT'S SO GREAT TO SEE YOU.

WELCOME TO... HEY.

COME ON IN.

THIS IS UNBELIEVABLY BEAUTIFUL.

THIS IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL
STUFF YOU GOT HERE.

LIKE A FAIRY TALE IN HERE.

I'M SO GLAD I CAN
FINALLY SHOW YOU GUYS.

MY NAME IS TIFFANY STEFFENS.

I WORK WITH RECORDING ARTISTS SUCH
AS JACK WHITE OF THE WHITE STRIPES.

I'VE BEEN A CUSTOMER OF
OBSCURA FOR SEVERAL YEARS.

I'VE ALWAYS BEEN INTO KIND OF THE
DARKER SIDE OF LIFE AND COLLECT ITEMS

OF THE MACABRE SENSE.

YOU'RE FOND OF NATURAL HISTORY, SO WE
FIGURED, YOU KNOW, THIS MIGHT FIT IN

WITH YOUR COLLECTION.

IT IS A VICTORIAN
TAXIDERMIC RABBIT DIORAMA.

OH, WOW.

NOW, THIS WAS A
FAIRLY COMMON THING.

YOU ACTUALLY SEE THEM
A LOT IN ENGLAND.

VERY OFTEN, THESE WOULD BE
PEOPLE'S PETS THAT WERE PRESERVED.

IT'S FUZZY.

PET THE BUNNY.

I HAVE TO GET THIS PIECE.

WE'RE ASKING $300.

I WOULD DO $300 ON THAT ON THE CONDITION
THAT YOU GUYS FIND SOMETHING ELSE.

MY FRIEND NEEDS A SPECIAL ITEM.

YOU ARE THE KING AND QUEEN OF
FINDING THE MOST AMAZING THINGS.

SO I WOULD LIKE TO SEE IF YOU COULD
FIND SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR HER.

WHO? WHO IS THIS
MYSTERIOUS WOMAN?

WELL, HER NAME IS
CASSANDRA PETERSON.

CASSANDRA PETERSON?

YEAH?

ELVIRA.

THE MISTRESS OF THE DARK.

CASSANDRA PETERSON.

THAT'S WHO IT IS.

WOW.

THAT WOULD BE HER.

THAT'S THE ONE.

ELVIRA, THE MISTRESS OF THE
DARK, IS A HORROR SEX ICON.

SHE'S BEEN PERFORMING IN MOVIES AND
COMMERCIALS AND ON TV FOR OVER 30 YEARS NOW.

IN FACT, SHE WAS ACTUALLY
RYAN'S FIRST CRUSH.

WHAT SORT OF ITEM
IS SHE LOOKING FOR?

I MEAN, SOMETHING LARGE,
LIKE A SHOWPIECE?

IT NEEDS TO BE SOMETHING
SHE CAN ACCESSORIZE WITH.

AS ELVIRA?

YEAH.

OKAY.

I THINK IT'S PRETTY SAFE TO ASSUME THAT
IT CAN BE SOMETHING ON THE MACABRE SIDE.

RIGHT, SOMETHING
DECORATIVE BUT DARK.

NOW, DID SHE MENTION A BUDGET?

THERE'S NO LIMITATION THERE.

RIGHT.

FOR THE RIGHT PIECE.

FOR THE RIGHT PIECE, SHE'S
WILLING TO PAY FOR IT.

WE'RE ACTUALLY OUT HERE FOR THE REST OF
THE WEEK, SO WE CAN DEFINITELY START

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING.

YEAH, ABSOLUTELY.

ALL RIGHT.

ALL RIGHT, WELL,
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

I SO APPRECIATE IT.

ENJOY THE BUNNY.

I'M IN L.A.

WITH MIKE AND EVAN TO BASICALLY
HELP THEM COVER MORE GROUND.

THEY WOULD LIKE ME TO CHECK
OUT AN INCREDIBLE COLLECTION.

YOU MUST BE RYAN.

YOU MUST BE DR. PAUL.

BASICALLY, ANYTHING THIS GUY IS WILLING
TO SELL IS GONNA BE DEFINITELY WORTHY

FOR THE SHOP.

OH, MY GOSH.

WOW.

YOU'VE AMASSED A PRETTY
UNIQUE COLLECTION.

I TRY TO AVOID THE
WORD "COLLECTING."

THIS IS MORE OF A... PSYCHOSIS.

ABSOLUTELY.

MY NAME IS DR. PAUL KOUDOUNARIS.

I HAVE A PhD IN ART
HISTORY FROM UCLA.

I TEACH ART HISTORY,
BUT I'M ALSO A WRITER.

I USED TO DO ART INSTALLATIONS,
AND NOW I LIVE IN ONE.

I HAVE SOMETHING I THINK YOU'D BE
INTERESTED IN IN THE OTHER ROOM.

OH, COOL.

I'D LOVE TO SEE IT. SURE.

Paul:

THIS IS MY BEDROOM.

OH, WOW. LOOK AT THIS.

IT'S WHERE YOU SPEND
MOST OF YOUR TIME.

YOU NEED TO BE COMFORTABLE.

THIS IS AMAZING.

ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH DR. GIGI?

YEAH, YEAH.

THIS IS AN ACTUAL GIGI PHEASANT.

THIS IS ONE OF DR. GIGI'S BIRDS.

OH, THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

DR. GIGI WAS A FRENCH SCIENTIST WHO HAD
DONE SEVERAL EXPERIMENTS WITH PHEASANTS

IN TERMS OF TRYING TO GET THIS PERFECT
COLOR AND ALSO A HIGHER-CRESTED HEAD.

DIRECT MANIPULATION OF DNA IS
CUTTING-EDGE SCIENTIFIC TECHNOLOGY.

HOWEVER, IT'S ACTUALLY BEEN
OCCURRING FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS

THROUGH SELECTIVE BREEDING OR MATING ANIMALS
WITH THE STRONGEST CHARACTERISTICS,

AS DR. GIGI ACTUALLY DID
WITH HIS PHEASANTS.

HOW MUCH WOULD YOU
BE LOOKING TO GET?

DO YOU WANT TO INQUIRE
WITH HIM, MAYBE?

WHY DON'T YOU TALK TO ME?

EXCUSE ME.

YOUR FEATHERS,

I SAY THE SAME ABOUT YOU.

WELL, THANK YOU.

UNLIKE YOURSELF.

BUT WHAT WOULD YOU
WANT TO BE SOLD AT?

I DON'T KNOW IF I WANT
TO GO TO NEW YORK.

I'M A RED SOX FAN.

OH, MAN.

REALISTICALLY, WHAT DO
YOU THINK ABOUT $125?

ALL RIGHT.

DOES THAT SOUND GOOD TO YOU?

I WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY.

I WANT YOU TO BE HAPPY.

YOU ARE MY GUEST.

ALL RIGHT, MAN.

THAT SOUNDS GREAT.

I GUESS THIS IS IT.

HUH.

Evan:

WE'RE ON A HUNT FOR AN ITEM FOR
ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK.

SHE'S LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT
ACCESSORY TO HER OUTFIT.

UH... WHAT'S THAT?

I DON'T KNOW.

HELLO?

WE'RE GONNA MEET WITH A SIDESHOW PERFORMER
WHO'S A GOOD FRIEND OF A CLIENT OF OURS.

WE WERE TOLD HE MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING IN
HIS COLLECTION THAT WOULD FIT THE BILL.

UH, EXCUSE ME.

OH, HEY.

YOU MUST BE MIKE.

YES, A.K.A. PROFESSOR QUANDARY.

I HOPE WE'RE NOT HERE
AT AN AWKWARD MOMENT.

NO, NO.

ACTUALLY, YOU'RE JUST IN TIME.

WE WERE JUST GETTING ONE OF
OUR ACTS FINALIZED HERE.

CLEAR.

OH.

MY NAME IS PROFESSOR QUANDARY FROM THE
SIDESHOW SIRENS, AND THIS IS THE FANTASTIC

AND AMAZING WIDGET.

THIS IS OUR GLASS-WALKING ACT.

THERE'S NO TRICKS, GAGS, OR
GIMMICKS TO WHAT WE DO HERE.

NO, THAT IS GLASS.

THIS IS REAL GLASS.

YOU BALANCE YOUR WEIGHT, AND YOU
HAVE TO DO IT PRETTY MUCH PERFECTLY

OR YOU CUT YOURSELF.

SO IT'S NOT A LOT OF FUN
IF YOU GET IT WRONG.

LIKE ALL SIDESHOW STUNTS, THERE'S A
CHANCE OF ACTUALLY INJURING YOURSELF.

DO YOU MIND IF WE WATCH, THOUGH?

PLEASE, ABSOLUTELY.

I'D LOVE TO GET YOUR THOUGHTS
ON IT, IF YOU DON'T MIND.

LET'S DO THIS.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE
LOVELY, THE TALENTED WIDGET.

THIS IS SO CRAZY.

OH, MY GOD.

THIS ONE IS A STRETCHED-HEAD
PERUVIAN SKULL.

THE CREAM OF THE CROP.

RIGHT.

Mike:

THIS IS "ODDITIES."

Quandary:

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE
LOVELY, THE TALENTED WIDGET.

THE ACTS YOU'RE ABOUT
TO SEE ARE REAL.

THE ACTS YOU ARE ABOUT
TO SEE ARE DANGEROUS.

THIS IS SO CRAZY.

Quandary:

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

OH, MAN.

OH.

OH, MAN.

OH.

THE LOVELY AND TALENTED WIDGET.

THAT WAS AMAZING.

THE CRUNCH, THE CRACK, THE SNAP...
THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL.

ONE OF THE BEST GLASS WALKERS IN THE
BUSINESS, AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED.

I'LL SAY.

THAT WAS AMAZING.

ALL THIS ASIDE... YEAH, WE'RE ACTUALLY ON
A MISSION TO FIND A VERY UNUSUAL OBJECT

FOR A CLIENT OF OURS.

ACTUALLY, IT'S ELVIRA.

REALLY? WOW.

SHE WANTS SOMETHING
VERY UNUSUAL.

SOMETHING SHE COULD WEAR
WITH SOME REAL IMPACT TO IT.

THERE'S A FEW PIECES WE
MIGHT BE ABLE TO LET GO OF.

YOU WANT TO COME IN AND TAKE
A LOOK AND SEE WHAT WE GOT?

ALL RIGHT.

LET'S GO ON INSIDE.

NEAT STUFF.

INTERESTING THINGS.

OH, WOW.

LOOK AT THAT LITTLE CUTIE PIE.

THAT YOU DO NOT SEE EVERY DAY.

DEER MOUSE.

ACTUALLY, IT'S A MOUSE DEER.

MAY I?

YOU NEVER SEE THESE.

THEY HAVE INCREDIBLY
DELICATE DEER LEGS.

THEY'RE TINY.

THESE ARE ACTUALLY NATIVE
TO MALAYSIA, INDONESIA.

THEY'D KEEP THEM AS PETS, WHICH WOULD
BE AMAZING TO HAVE ONE OF THESE TICKING

AROUND THE HOUSE.

IT'S REALLY INTERESTING.

I DON'T KNOW IF SHE'D BE ABLE
TO USE THIS IN THIS FORM.

WHAT ARE THE SKULLS AND SUCH?

THOSE ARE CUTE.

THEY'RE RODENT SKULLS, I SEE.

THESE ARE TWO MUSKRATS.

THIS IS FRED AND THIS IS GINGER.

OH.

A WONDERFUL COUPLE.

THE WONDERFUL THING ABOUT
GINGER IS THAT SHE'S STILL GOT

A LITTLE BRAIN LEFT INSIDE OF HER, SO,
LIKE, YOU CAN HEAR... OH, LITTLE MARACAS.

THOSE ARE NEAT.

NOT QUITE STRANGE ENOUGH.

JUST DON'T THINK
IT'S GONNA WORK.

IT'S JUST NOT MACABRE OR
MYSTERIOUS ENOUGH FOR OUR CLIENT.

IT'S GOT TO BE A
LITTLE MORE OUT THERE.

GOT IT.

I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND.

WELL, THANKS FOR HAVING US OVER.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH, GUYS.

IT WAS REALLY A
PLEASURE MEETING YOU.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU.

WHILE MIKE AND EVAN ARE
OFF SHOPPING FOR ELVIRA,

WHO'S GOT A PRETTY
GREAT COLLECTION.

HEY, WHAT'S UP, MAN?

HOW ARE YOU?

HOW ARE YOU, BROTHER?

GOOD TO SEE YOU.

I KNOW HE LIKES SKULLS JUST AS MUCH
AS I DO, SO I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT.

OH, IS THIS YOUR WEAPONS ROOM?

BASICALLY.

IT'S THE BEDROOM, AND IT'S KIND
OF BECOME THE WEAPONS ROOM

'CAUSE I'VE RUN OUT OF
SPACE EVERYWHERE ELSE.

I JUST STARTED COLLECTING AND IT GOT
OUT OF HAND, AND THEN I STARTED

MAKING THE STUFF MYSELF.

OH, NO KIDDING?

I DON'T KNOW.

I WENT WEAPON CRAZY.

YOU DID THIS ALL FROM SCRATCH?

YEAH, YEAH. DID ALL THE LEATHER
WORK AND THE WOOD CORE.

THAT'S ALL FROM SCRATCH.

VERY NICELY DONE.

I'M WES BORLAND.

I'M A GUITARIST AND
IDIOT EXTRAORDINAIRE.

I PLAY IN THE BAND LIMP BIZKIT, AND
I COLLECT VERY STRANGE THINGS.

OH, COOL.

YOUR SKULL CABINET.

THIS IS THE CASE, YEAH.

THIS IS AMAZING, MAN.

THIS ONE IS THE STRETCHED-HEAD PERUVIAN
SKULL, WHICH IS, LIKE... I DIDN'T WANT TO GO

STRAIGHT TO THAT ONE, BUT OBVIOUSLY,
THAT IS THE CREAM OF THE CROP.

I MEAN, IT DOESN'T GET ANY
MORE RARE THAN THESE THINGS.

ARE WE ABLE TO TAKE THIS OUT?

ABSOLUTELY.

WE'LL MOVE IT OVER TO THE TABLE.

COOL. I'D LOVE TO JUST
LOOK AT IT, YOU KNOW?

CONSIDERED A SIGN OF BEAUTY, PERUVIANS
ELONGATED THE SKULL BY PLACING TWO BOARDS

ON THE INFANT'S HEAD.

NOW, THIS WOULD HAPPEN GENERALLY IN THE
FIRST MONTH OF AGE THROUGH ABOUT SIX MONTHS

BECAUSE THE SKULL IS
A LOT MORE PLIABLE.

WOW.

I'M OBSESSED WITH THESE.

RIGHT.

I HAVE TO ASK.

WOULD YOU EVER SELL THIS?

TODAY, NO.

BUT MAYBE NEXT YEAR.

OKAY.

PEOPLE USUALLY DON'T WANT TO PART
WITH THEM, FOR GOOD REASON, YOU KNOW?

DO YOU HAVE OTHER STUFF THAT YOU
MIGHT BE WILLING TO PART WITH?

YEAH.

I REALLY LOVE IT, BUT I MIGHT BE
WILLING TO PART WITH THIS ONE.

I ALWAYS THOUGHT IT
WAS KIND OF ODD.

THERE'S NO SEAM IN THE BACK.

YEAH, THERE'S NO
SUTURE IN THE BACK.

WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED IS THAT SUTURE
COULD HAVE PREMATURELY FUSED EARLY ON.

AND THAT'S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE,
BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE THERE'S NO

REMNANT OF A SUTURE WHATSOEVER.

NO.

IT'S A STRANGE SHAPE.

THERE'S A BIG DIP.

THE SUTURES ARE BASICALLY THE SEAMS
THAT HOLD YOUR ENTIRE SKULL TOGETHER.

CRANIOSYNOSTOSIS IS A CONDITION WHERE
A SUTURE WILL FUSE PREMATURELY...

IN THIS CASE, THE SAGITTAL SUTURE, WHICH
CAN AFFECT THE BRAIN AND ALSO DISMORPH

THE ACTUAL SKULL SHAPE.

I'D DEFINITELY BE INTERESTED.

I THINK I'D BE OKAY WITH
PARTING WITH THAT ONE.

WHAT YOU THINKING, MAN?

$375?

WOULD THAT BE RIDICULOUS?

I WOULD FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE
PAYING $325 FOR IT.

YEAH. THAT'S FAIR.

OKAY.

WE CAN GET IT WRAPPED UP.

I'VE GOT GROCERY
BAGS EVERYWHERE.

AND, I DON'T KNOW, TOILET PAPER?

IS THAT...

LET'S TAKE A LOOK
IN THE CABINET.

MAN!

THESE ARE ALL PERFECT
EXAMPLES OF SHRUNKEN HEADS.

IF I OWNED THESE, I'D BE
BURIED WITH THESE THINGS.

THESE ARE AMAZING.

Mike:

THIS IS "ODDITIES."

EVAN AND I ARE STILL
LOOKING AROUND IN L.A.

FOR AN ITEM FOR THE MISTRESS
OF THE DARK, ELVIRA.

PLEASE COME IN.

SURE.

THANK YOU.

HEY, GUYS.

HEY, BEN.

HOW ARE YOU DOING?

HEY. HOW ARE YOU?

GREAT TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

THANKS FOR COMING.

I'VE BEEN TRADING WEIRD ITEMS
WITH MY FRIEND BEN FOR YEARS.

HOPEFULLY HE'LL HAVE SOMETHING FOR US,
BECAUSE SO FAR, WE'VE COME UP EMPTY HANDED.

WE'RE ACTUALLY LOOKING FOR
A PIECE FOR OUR CLIENT.

ACTUALLY, ELVIRA,
MISTRESS OF THE DARK.

OH, SURE, SURE.

SHE SORT OF WANTS A CONVERSATION
STARTER, SOMETHING THAT SAYS GHOULISH,

INTERESTING, SOMETHING WEARABLE.

LET'S TAKE A LOOK IN
THE CABINETS HERE.

SURE.

ABSOLUTELY.

I'M BEN ZIEGLER.

I AM A COLLECTOR OF ODD AND UNUSUAL
THINGS... POSTMORTEM PHOTOGRAPHY, SKULLS,

AND ETHNOGRAPHIC ART.

WOW!

OH, LORD!

MAN!

THESE ARE ALL PERFECT EXAMPLES
OF TSANTSAS, OR SHRUNKEN HEADS.

YEAH, THESE ARE MUSEUM-QUALITY.

I MEAN, THIS IS AMAZING TO
FIND IN A PRIVATE COLLECTION.

CAN WE TAKE A LOOK
AT ONE OF THEM?

ABSOLUTELY.

DO YOU NAME THEM OR ANYTHING?

NO, I HAVE NOT NAMED
THEM, BUT FEEL FREE.

OH, MY GOSH.

THAT IS GORGEOUS.

THESE SHRUNKEN
HEADS ARE AMAZING.

THE WAY THEY'RE PREPARED IS THEY CUT
OPEN THE SCALP, THEY REMOVE THE SKULL,

THEY BOIL IT IN HOT WATER WITH HERBS AND
TANNINS, THEY SMOKE IT OVER A FIRE,

RUB CHARCOAL INTO IT, AND
BASICALLY SHRINK IT DOWN TO

MAKE A LITTLE PIECE OF LEATHER.

I MEAN, THIS THING IS THE PERFECT
TROPHY FROM THE BATTLEFIELD.

I THINK WE ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWER,
BUT ARE THESE FOR SALE AT ALL?

NO. NO. ABSOLUTELY NOT.

I DON'T BLAME YOU.

IF I OWNED THESE, THEY WOULD...
I'D BE BURIED WITH THESE THINGS.

THESE ARE AMAZING.

WE'VE GOT PLENTY MORE
IN THE CABINETS HERE.

LET'S SEE WHAT ELSE WE CAN FIND.

SURE.

OH, MY GOD.

THAT'S BEAUTIFUL.

THIS IS A NECKLACE OF 138
HUMAN TEETH FROM FIJI.

DID YOU COUNT THEM?

I COUNTED THEM.

THE FIJIANS WERE CANNIBALS.

ABSOLUTELY.

THEY WERE FIERCE,
FIERCE HUNTERS.

WHETHER IT'S ACTUALLY VICTIMS OF
CANNIBALS OR IF IT'S JUST ANCESTORS,

I CAN'T BE SURE.

WHY DON'T YOU TRY IT ON AND SEE WHAT...
GOSH, THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL.

OH, IT HAS A GREAT WEIGHT TO IT.

UM... YEAH.

NIBBLING ON YOUR NECK THERE.

THAT FITS.

MY GOODNESS.

THIS WOULD BE PERFECT.

NOW, IS THIS SOMETHING YOU
WOULD BE WILLING TO PART WITH?

FOR THE RIGHT PRICE.

OF COURSE.

YEAH.

I WOULD PROBABLY BE
IN THE $2,500 RANGE.

RIGHT.

HMM.

IS THERE ANY WIGGLE ROOM ON IT?

I MEAN, TWO GRAND EVEN,
WE'D BE ALL OVER IT.

WELL, WE'VE DONE A LOT OF BUSINESS,
SO I THINK THAT'LL WORK.

THAT'S FAIR ENOUGH.

EXCELLENT.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

THANK YOU.

I'M ALL OVER L.A. THIS WEEK, CHECKING
OUT THE BEST COLLECTORS OF ODDITIES.

I'VE ALREADY GOTTEN A SKULL FROM WES BORLAND
AND A FREAKY PHEASANT FROM DR. PAUL.

TODAY I'M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO
SEEING MY FRIEND SCOTT'S COLLECTION,

WHICH IS SO VAST, HE ACTUALLY HAD TO MOVE
TO A BIGGER LOCATION TO ACCOMMODATE IT.

HOPEFULLY, I'LL HIT THE JACKPOT.

HEY, WHAT'S UP, MAN?

HEY, RYAN.

GOOD TO SEE YOU, BROTHER.

GOOD TO SEE YOU, MAN.

OH, MY GOSH.

THIS PLACE IS A PALACE.

THANK YOU.

THIS IS AMAZING.

I MEAN, YOU FINALLY
HAVE YOUR OWN GALLERY.

YEAH, YEAH.

SOME OF IT'S MINE.

SOME OF IT, I'VE COLLECTED
FROM OTHER PLACES.

SO, HERE ARE A BUNCH OF
PICKLED, PRESERVED SPECIMENS.

I SEE THAT. I SEE THAT.

REALLY, REALLY NICELY DONE.

YEAH. SOME PRIMATES.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT KIND
OF MONKEY THAT IS?

THAT IS A RHESUS.

IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S PROBABLY A RHESUS...
A SMALLER ONE.

I'M SCOTT D. WILSON.

I'M A MIXED-MEDIA FINE ARTIST.

I STARTED DRAWING.

THAT'S MY GOD-GIVEN TALENT.

FROM THERE, IT WENT TO COLLECTING WEIRD
STUFF THAT ENDS UP IN MY ARTWORK.

WHAT IS THIS OVER HERE?

AH.

THAT IS A HUMAN HAND.

OH, MY GOD.

LOOK AT THAT.

THERE YOU GO, MAN.

OH, MY GOD.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING
LIKE THIS BEFORE.

IT'S PRETTY BIZARRE.

REALLY BIZARRE.

IT'S NICE TO TOUCH
IT AND HOLD IT.

IT'S A LITTLE GRISLY.

WOULD YOU EVER SELL THIS?

UH... MAYBE.

THAT'S ANOTHER... YEAH.

THAT SEEMS LIKE AN
AFFIRMATIVE NO, SCOTT.

REALLY COOL, THOUGH.

I LOVE THAT STUFF.

THANK YOU.

IS THAT A BRAIN?

UM, THAT IS A HUMAN BRAIN.

OH, COOL.

LOOK AT THAT.

THAT'S REALLY BEAUTIFUL.

I LOVE THE JAR.

THE BRAIN IS IN WHAT LOOKS
LIKE PRISTINE CONDITION.

THIS COULD HAVE POSSIBLE COME
FROM A PHYSICIAN'S CABINET.

THE CEREBRAL CORTEX IS
IN PERFECT CONDITION.

SO, SCOTT MY BROTHER.

YEAH, YEAH.

WOULD YOU CONSIDER
SELLING THIS PIECE, MAN?

THAT WOULD BE SOMETHING I WOULD
PROBABLY CONSIDER SELLING.

OKAY, WHAT ARE YOU
THINKING PRICE-WISE?

I WOULD SAY, UM, $900,
AND IT'S YOUR BRAIN.

I THINK $900 IS FAIR.

AWESOME.

YOU'RE MY BROTHER.

YOU GOT YOURSELF A BRAIN, MAN.

Mike:

THIS IS "ODDITIES."

IT'S OUR LAST DAY IN LOS ANGELES,
AND WE'RE FINALLY GONNA MEET

WITH CASSANDRA PETERSON, A.K.A.
ELVIRA, THE MISTRESS OF THE DARK,

AND PRESENT THE ITEM
WE FOUND FOR HER.

HEY.

HEY.

THANK YOU GUYS SO
MUCH FOR COMING OUT.

SURE.

OUR FRIEND TIFFANY, WHO SET
THIS WHOLE THING UP, IS HERE,

AND SHE SAID WE COULD BRING RYAN
'CAUSE HE'S SUCH A HUGE FAN OF ELVIRA.

OH, MY GOD.

WHAT IS THIS?

OH, MAN.

CHECK THAT OUT.

Evan:

THAT IS TOO BEAUTIFUL.

HELLO.

HI.

NICE CAR.

OH, THANK YOU.

I'M CASSANDRA PETERSON, SOMETIMES KNOWN
AS ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK,

MY ALTER EGO.

WELCOME TO MY NIGHTMARE.

OH, THIS IS LOVELY.

AS YOU CAN SEE, MY HOUSE IS NOT ACTUALLY
LIKE THE ADDAMS FAMILY OR ANYTHING.

SURE.

I DON'T KNOW.

A FEW LITTLE THINGS I'VE
COLLECTED OVER THE YEARS.

YOU KNOW, I HAVE TO SAY, YOU
WERE MY FIRST CRUSH EVER.

UH-OH!

IT WAS BIKER MAMA IN
"PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE."

DID I HELP YOU THROUGH PUBERTY?

I WAS LIKE 7 YEARS OLD.

YOUR ORIGINAL DOLL,
I HAD AS A KID.

WHOA. YOU REALLY LIKED ME.

I'M BLUSHING.

I DON'T WANT THE
REST OF THAT STORY.

YEAH.

SOME PEOPLE DO NOT GET THE FACT
THAT I AM ACTUALLY A REAL PERSON

PLAYING A CHARACTER.

BREAKS A LOT OF HEARTS.

WELL, WE DID A LOT OF RUNNING AROUND... I
MEAN, NO PUN INTENDED... TO EXTRACT THIS

FROM THE PREVIOUS OWNER.

BUT THIS IS SOMETHING
YOU CAN WEAR.

OH, MY GOD.

WHAT IS IT?

IT'S A FIJIAN... IT
LOOKS LIKE TEETH.

IT IS HUMAN TEETH.

HUMAN TEETH?

OH! EVEN BETTER.

WHOA!

THIS IS A REALLY NEAT PIECE.

IT DOES COME FROM FIJI, WHICH DOES
HAVE A HISTORY OF CANNIBALISM AND

HEADHUNTING, ACTUALLY.

THERE ARE AT LEAST 20 PEOPLE IN
THERE, JUDGING FROM... OH, MY GOD.

OH, THAT LOOKS GREAT!

THIS IS SO PERFECT.

IT GOES WITH MY OUTFIT.

HELLO.

IT'S A TROPHY NECKLACE, SO,
TRADITIONALLY, THEY WOULD TAKE,

YOU KNOW, BITS AND PIECES FROM PEOPLE
THEY VANQUISHED AND SORT OF WEAR IT

AS A REMINDER OF THEIR PROWESS.

THIS IS PERFECT.

YOU GUYS, THIS IS SO GREAT.

BUT, UH, I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE...
WHAT'S THIS GONNA SET ME BACK?

WE'RE ASKING $2,800.

WHOA.

YEAH, THAT'S ABOUT AS MUCH AS
A COUPLE OF CROWNS, RIGHT?

A FEW CROWNS.

YEAH, YEAH.

I REALLY... WOW.

$2,800? DAMN.

CANNIBALS ARE EXPENSIVE.

OH, YEAH.

I LIKE IT, I LIKE IT.

I WILL DEFINITELY DO THAT.

I MEAN, YOU DON'T RUN
ACROSS THESE EVERY DAY.

NO, YOU SURE DON'T.

YOU'VE GOT YOURSELF A NECKLACE.

YEAH. THANK YOU.

THANK YOU, GUYS.

JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY.

I'M JUST THROWING IT OUT THERE, AND I DON'T
WANT TO BE RUDE... AND I DIDN'T EVEN ASK

THESE GUYS... BUT ANY POSSIBLE WAY
WE COULD TAKE A RIDE IN THAT CAR?

LET'S DO IT.

OH, YEAH!

THANK YOU.

THIS WEEK HAS BEEN A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME,
WHIRLWIND EXPERIENCE.

EVAN AND I GOT TO SEE THE WEIRDEST L.A.
HAS TO OFFER,

RYAN PICKED UP SOME REALLY GOOD ITEMS FOR
THE SHOP, AND WE ALL GOT TO TAKE A RIDE

IN ELVIRA'S MACABRE MOBILE.

RYAN IS IN ALL OF
HIS GLORY HERE.

I THINK THE HARDEST PART NOW IS TO
CONVINCE HIM TO COME BACK TO NEW YORK.

FOR DINNER LATER?
