Bates: "I saw this advertisement for a-- a limp corrector."
Salesman: "Yes?"
Bates: "What does it do exactly?"
Salesman: "It corrects limps."
Episode 1.03

The Salesman is the proprietor of a shop specialising in artificial limbs, braces and other related items. Mr. Bates visits the shop to inquire about a limp corrector he saw in an advert. When Bates asks if it works, he flippantly replies Well, as I make it and I advertise it, is it likely I'd say no?.

Ultimately, the limp corrector is a complete failure, only causing a great deal of pain and as a result, Bates ends up tossing it into a pond.
