Macbeth was anxious.
Every time he upped his bid on the storage unit he heard Dave Hester's loud "Yuuuuuuuuuuup" behind him, indicating that Hester was driving the bidding even higher. He hadn't even wanted this unit, which seemed to contain several playing cards, a bunch of Virgin Mary statues that looked like their faces had been severely rubbed by a crazy woman, and the kingship to Scotland. Lady Macbeth had informed him that they absolutely had to win this storage unit auction.
"If we should fail?", Macbeth had asked.
But screw your courage to the sticking-place,
And we'll not fail. When Auctioneer Dan Dotson calls for a higher bid--
Whereto the rather shall his day's hard journey
Soundly increase your bid to him!"
"Do I hear five hundred dollars?", auctioneer Dan Dotson yelled.
Lady Macbeth kicked her husband. "FIVE HUNDRED!", shouted Macbeth.
"SIX HUNDRED!", interjected Barry Weiss.
And on it went.
In an interview earlier for the show, Dave Hester had announced that he had no interest in the storage unit, he just wanted the Macbeths to pay through the nose for it. Because he's a dick.
Finally, the Macbeths won the unit, though the bidding had gone up so high that Lady Macbeth had LOST HER MIND in the process.
Macbeth went to inspect his unit. He spied a hangman's noose. "What's this?", He wondered.
And then, just as things were getting interesting, the show cut to another goddamn commercial.
