- YOU'VE GOT A REALLY,REALLY UNIQUE PIECE HERE.

FULL-LENGTH SWORD CANESARE HARD TO COME BY NOW.

AND THIS LOOKS LIKE A TELESCOPE.VERY, VERY COOL.

THIS SAYS A LOT ABOUT THE PIECE.

YOU'RE PROBABLY TALKINGABOUT AN EXPLORER.

THIS DATES ANYWHEREIN BETWEEN 1820 AND 1860.

THE SWORD CANE WAS HUGELYPOPULAR IN ENGLAND,

RIGHT AROUNDTHE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.

THAT THIS WAS ACTUALLY USED.

I COULD GO $1,400.

- WELL, YOU, SIR,ARE NO GENTLEMAN.

WE NEED $1,800.

- NNNHH.I DON'T KNOW ABOUT $1,800.

IN TERMS OF RESALE,IN TERMS OF MY FINDING SOMEBODY

THAT'S INTERESTED IN THISSPECIFIC SORT OF THING,

IT'S KIND OF A NARROW WINDOW.

- OKAY. I'M THINKING YOU MIGHTNOT BE THE GUY FOR THIS CANE.

- I KNOW HE'S THAT GUY,AND I KNOW YOU'RE WILLING

TO AT LEAST GO TO $1,500.

- OH, $1,500?

ALL RIGHT.

- PERFECT.$1,500?

THAT'S MORE THAN TEN TIMESWHAT WE PAID FOR THAT UNIT.

- SO FAR, HENDERSONIS LIVING UP TO THE HYPE.

NEXT, WE'VE ARRANGED TO MEET

A PROFESSIONAL MAGICIANNAMED LARRY.

HE MAKES A LIVING BY PUTTING AFRESH SPIN ON CLASSIC ILLUSIONS.

WE'RE HOPING OUR MAGIC BOXIS JUST THE KIND OF TRICK

HE'S GONNA WANT TO ADDTO HIS SHOW.

WHAT DO YOU THINKWE'VE GOT HERE, LARRY?

- OH, I KNOW WHATYOU'VE GOT HERE.

THIS IS A ZIG-ZAG GIRL.

IT WAS INVENTED BY A MAGICIANNAMED ROBERT HARBIN

IN THE LATE '50s, AND ITHAS A VERY DISTINCT PLACE

IN THE HISTORY OF MAGIC.

IT'S COMPLETELY SELF-CONTAINED.

IT IS NOT IN ANY WAY DEPENDENTON SPECIAL LIGHTING.

IT IS NOT DEPENDENT ONTRAP DOORS IN THE FLOOR.

YOU ROLL IN, BOOM!

YOU PUT IT IN,YOU'RE READY TO GO.

IT CHANGED MAGIC.

BY THE MID-'70s, EVERYBODY WASDOING THIS PARTICULAR ILLUSION.

THE BLADE GOES IN HERE.HER HAND IS STICKING OUT HERE,

HER FACE IS STICKING OUT HERE,AND HER FOOT IS OUT HERE.

BUT THEN, AS IF, OH, NO,YOU NEED THE CONVINCER,

HE GRABS AHOLD OF THE CENTERAND PULLS HER CENTER OUT.

IT DOESN'T MATTER

IF THE AUDIENCEIS ALL THE WAY AROUND YOU.

THEY'RE LOOKING THROUGHHER MIDDLE.

- HAS ANYBODY EVER GOTTEN HURTIN THIS BOX?

- YEAH, ALL THE TIME.- RIGHT.

- THIS IS A VERY VALUABLEPIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

- HOW MUCH DO YOU THINKIT'S WORTH?

- IT COULD BE ANYWHERE FROM$1,200 TO MAYBE THREE GRAND.

IT DEPENDS ON HOW WELLIT OPERATES.

I'D LIKE TO TEST IT OUT

AND SEE HOW PRECISESOME OF THE MOVING PARTS ARE.

IN FACT, YOU KNOW WHAT?WHY DON'T YOU BOYS HELP ME?

- I KNOW I'M NOTGETTING IN THIS THING.

THIS WAS NOT BUILTFOR BIG GUYS.

- NO, NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT.

THIS IS DESIGNED, THE SHAPEOF THIS, THE SIZE OF THIS,

IS OBVIOUSLY FOR A GIRL MAYBE5'4" OR SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

YOU WANT A DANCERFOR A PROP LIKE THIS.

- GOT IT.- YEAH.

THERE'S ONE GIRL IN PARTICULARI WOULD LIKE TO PUT IN THIS,

DO THAT TEST RUN WITH HER.

GIVE ME A MOMENT TO PREPARE.

THE LOVELY AND TALENTED ANGELA.- HEY!

[applause]

- LET'S CLOSE THESE DOORSAND LATCH THEM.

ALLEN, GET THE BLADE.

INSERT THE BLADE.GOOD JOB.

SECOND BLADE, ALLEN.

TON, EXTRACT THE MIDSECTION.

BEAR IN MIND, IF YOUGET ANY BLOOD ON THIS,

THE VALUEIS GREATLY DIMINISHED.

PULL IT OUT.

[drum roll]

[cymbal crashes]

- YEAH!- AH!

- ALL RIGHT.- NO BLOOD. YEAH!

- LET THE AMAZING ANGELA OUT.

GIVE HER A THUNDEROUS ROUNDOF APPLAUSE.

[applause]

- THANK YOU, ANGELA.

I HAVE TO SAY, IT ACTUALLYOPERATES VERY, VERY NICELY.

- WELL, IT IS A SWEET LITTLEHONEY FROM EVERY ANGLE, LARRY.

- YES, IT IS.- YEAH.

THE QUESTION IS,HAVE YOU SEEN ENOUGH

TO OFFER USWHAT THIS BOX IS WORTH?

- I'LL GO TO $2,300,

BUT THAT'S AS MUCH AS I'MWILLING TO PAY FOR THIS.

- WE COULD GO DOWNTO 2,600 BUCKS.

I THINK THAT'S GONNA BE IT,LARRY.

- I COULD GIVE YOU $2,400.

- THE MAGIC NUMBERIS 2,500 BUCKS.

- ALL RIGHT.

- SWEET!- REALLY?

- $2,500?- $2,500.

- THIS IS NOT A TRICK?- THIS IS NOT A TRICK.

- WOW.

- NOW THAT WAS MAGICAL.

WE TURNED THAT ZIG-ZAG BOXINTO A MIGHTY NICE PROFIT.

- I GOTTA SAY, TON,

THE STRIP ISN'T THE ONLY PLACETO HIT IT BIG IN VEGAS.

WE SOLD THE SWORD CANEFOR $1,500.

OUR ZIG-ZAG MAGIC TRICKFETCHED $2,500.

AND ALL THE OTHER ITEMSWENT FOR 1,070 BUCKS.

- WE SPENT A TOTAL OF $320ON THE TWO UNITS

AND SOLD THE CONTENTSFOR 5,070 BUCKS

FOR A TOTAL PROFIT OF $4,750.

- WELL, THE NIGHT IS YOUNG.WHAT SHOULD WE DO?

- [laughs]

BEER ME.

- HAH!- YEAH.

- WHAT BETTER WAY TO APPRECIATETHESE STEINS?

I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU,TON,
