Ending sequence (same as in "Alice in Disco Land", Earthquakes Happen", "Like a Brother", "The Lottery", "The Disciple", and "Patterns")

  • Some funny sequences of the Hulk wandering through the store departments like a giant child
  • Hulk out 1: When a thief locks him in the bottom of an elevator shaft, underneath a creaky old elevator that is showering sparks, and slipping off of its cables, yells "Hey! You've got to get me out of here! It's slipping!", only to have the 5-ton elevator suddenly fall on him (this one gets points for originality)
  • Hulk out 2: Being beaten up by thieves and thrown in the store vault, having the vault door closed on his foot, and then having the air supply cut off
  • Contains the often used scene of the Hulk running away down the lighted alleyway
