***SPOILERS*** 1989 "New Twilight Zone"episode that takes place in the very near future, in 1999, when the world was going through a deep financial downturn with unemployment in the US reaching an astronomical 32% and people selling whatever they had in valuables in order to sustain themselves.

Simon Foster, Bruce Weitz, had just about used up his unemployment benefits and was in the process of hocking anything of value, like his gold watch,to just be able to pay his rent. Going to see the local neighborhood pawnbroker Mr.Quint, Geza Kovacs, Simon is only able to get a measly $65.00 for his watch and whatever other "valuables" that he had. Needing money to pay his rent or he'll be thrown by his landlord, Rafe Macpherson, out on the street Mr.Quint makes Simon an offer that he can't refuse. Mr.Quint talks Simon into selling his lifetime of memories for as much as $1,000 a pop or memory!

At first things turn out all right for Simon with his memories deleted from his brain in order to pay off his bills but later he realizes that he'slowly becoming a non entity or person in not knowing his past and thus jeopardizing his future, as an engineer, employment! Quickly coming to his senses Simon now goes to see Mr. Quint to get his memories back or deplete, by blowing Mr.Quint away, him of his life for what he did, with of course Simon's approval, to destroy his identity!

***SPOILERS*** Not being able to restore Simon of his memory bank Mr. Quint does the second best thing! Give Simon a new set on memories, from both men & women,that will give him a new start in life. In Simon being an expert in any profession he chooses to go into!
