To Infinity and Be-pawned!: Rick tries to win one from the Gipper when a special pendant hits the counter. Can the patron saint of pawn shops help Rick land the deal? Next, a massive collection of vinyl LPs has Chum's head spinning. Can he get into a groove with the seller, or will this deal get scratched? Then, it's happy days for Corey when a dress from Laverne and Shirley comes into the shop. Will he be able to skirt the issues with this item? Or will Corey take the L and let the dress walk out of the shop? And finally, Rick and Chum get fired up when they head to the desert to shoot the shop's newest firearm. But their canon feels quaint when they spot the big guns – and Rick might just explode from jealousy.

Season 18 Episode 15

Long before banks, ATMS and check-cashing services, there were pawn shops. Pawning was the leading form of consumer credit in the United States until the 1950s, and pawn shops are still helping everyday people make ends meet. Pawn Stars takes you inside the colorful world of the pawn business. At the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop on the outskirts of Las Vegas, three generations of the Harrison family – grandfather Richard, son Rick and grandson Corey – jointly run the family business, and there's clashing and camaraderie every step of the way. The three men use their sharp eyes and skills to assess the value of items from the commonplace to the truly historic, including a 16th-century samurai sword, a Super Bowl ring, a Picasso painting and a 17th-century stay of execution. It's up to them to determine what's real and what's fake, as they reveal the often surprising answer to the questions on everyone's mind, "What's the story behind it?" and "What's it worth?"
