This reminds me of that one Cowboy Bebop episode where they go into a shop, looking for a guy who knows how to play an old... DVD or Betamax something? And Spike kicks something and it messes up.
I love that episode. They randomly get a Betamax cassette delivered to them, so they have to track down a player. When they do find a guy with one, the picture isn't clear, so he tries fixing it by kicking it, which just gets them kicked out. So then they have to raid that abandoned museum and grab the VHS player by mistake.
Welp, looks like I'm re-watching Cowboy Bepop again.
