s7e10: You Bet Your Butt
Seth and Ashley each make a series of bets to see if either of them, or Les, can purchase any item that comes into the store that they would otherwise dismiss as "junk", including a "Major Dollar" mascot costume and a rusted out Mobil Oil Pegasus logo. But when a set of first-class airline seats (the actual seats, not tickets) come into the shop, they get Les involved in the wager to see whether or not the seats will be bought -- the loser will take over the janitor's job for the final hour of the day.

s7e15: The Trouble with Michael
Michael is a regular customer at American Jewelry, but the feeling is not mutual among the clerks, as everything he brought in was all but worthless. Ashley doesn't want him back anymore, and Bobby J especially has a hatred toward Michael, but Seth says otherwise, in the event that Michael actually had something of value. However, when Michael offered a car without a title, Seth felt that he was at the end of his rope -- until Michael offered a gold chain that might bring in thousands of dollars. Also: speed painter Dave Santia tries to paint Les's portrait in ten minutes in hopes to get money.

s8e1: Seth's Return
After Les secretly found out that Seth was at Bill's Pawn Shop, Les confronted him, asking Seth why he would betray the family by visiting a competing pawn shop. Seth explained the real reason: he was branching out into consulting as a sideline -- the very thing that another person that Seth hired tried to do for American Jewelry earlier. As being a consultant is tantamount to disclosing family secrets to strangers, Les gives Seth a choice: "Family, or nothing."
