I love this episode. The theme park guy was in serious need of help and it was so cool that the guys gave back some of the money they made. This is a feel-good piece that I love to watch.

Regarding the American Pickers returning to share in their Windfall.
Much better to do that than do what one of my yard sale customers did. She knocked me down to almost a give away price on a beautiful bowl I had inherited. Then she showed me how stupid I was to sell REAL china for peanuts. It's not as if I didn't need the money. After all I was trying to make my rent that month after my husband lost his job.
