Suggested correction: In the first bar scene and several other scenes, we see that Pedott (which is the accurate spelling of his name) is purposely giving his trinkets away, explicitly saying that there's "no charge tonight". It's easily understood that he's not charging for the goods he provides as they're "what they need".

What You Need - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: In scene just after Rod Serling's opening narration, you can quite see that scene is being played in reverse because smoke is coming downwards back into the man's cigarette.
