Did You Know?
Originally, only the parking lot south of the Pawn Shop was used for customer parking. The lot north of the building (identifiable by the banner reading "pawn shop parking - other side of building") was originally used for government employee parking during the week - and people who would park there for the pawn shop would often get their cars booted or towed. However, due to demand, the Pawn Shop purchased this property, and it is now used for shop parking. See more
The characters often mispronounce "Cavalry" is "Calvary." (Cavalry is horseback/vehicle using soldiers, Calvary is the site where Jesus was crucified.) See more
Rick Harrison - 'The Spotter'
I'm Rick Harrison, and this is my pawn shop. I work here with my old man and my son, "Big Hoss." Everything in here has a story and a price. One thing I've learned after 21 years - you never know what is gonna come through that door.
Early episodes "play it straight" in the "this time on Pawn Stars" segments at the beginning of the show, showing what will be sold/traded/etc. on the show. However, in more recent seasons, this has become more of a "joke" segment, and features outtakes or funny scenes that aren't in the actual respective segments (cars not starting, comical dialogue, things going wrong, etc.) See more
