      • There's also an update on Linda Hamilton, the woman we saw two episodes ago help a homeless man (played by an actor) after 88 people passed him. John gets her a cellphone since her old one was disconnected. Then he reads her some of the touching letters posted for her. He brings her to a social services place and makes sure she has a personal file set up with someone who is going to help her get off the street.

      • Affection at the Bar: A gay couple is hired to be affectionate in a sports bar. There's also a acting heterosexual couple on the opposite side and a "gay basher" that strums up some negativity. One man immediately shuts the gay basher down, tells him to get out. Next he uses humor, one man says to the basher that the couple asked him to stop, so stop. Next the gay couple turns up the heat with kissing. A woman gets shaken up with the comments, eventually saying that it wasn't right to bash on them. More people stand up to the couple than increase the harassment.

      • Online Dating Mishap: Tall, strong man is replaced by an actor who's balding and is much shorter. The beautiful girl is replaced by an actress that's over 6 feet tall and heavier in weight. The first girl encounters the actor and fakes having a good time. Later she says she wouldn't have gone on to a second date. For the next girl, they put the original guy on her other side. She does a double take and while the actor is gone, he steals the date back! Not every date is so nice, one girl is pretty upset. Part 2: The guys meeting the girl they met online. First guy stays for a bit and states there's no harm in conversing. The second guy is so pissed he doesn't even agree for his face to be shown. The third guy stays outside, phones her, and cancels! The 4th guy doesn't notice the difference until the original beauty pulls up beside him.

      • Stranger with a Badge: An actor posing as a cop pulls out a badge and asks a shopper to take a woman's wallet from inside the store (also an actor). Recall the McDonald's incident that made headlines. The first woman does steal the wallet. Another scenario has a woman dropping pills to sedate the suspect in her drink. She does it. Back at the supermarket, the cop asks to steal the baby to protect her. She doesn't think she's being duped! One man actually questions the cop (1 of the 22 people) and is the only one to do so.

      • Racial Profiling in Store: The manager is quite offensive, but few customers say something directly. The manager confronts customers to engage them in the discussion. One woman starts crying because the manager is acting very rude. A black couple get very upset and leave. But only 20 of 100 people intervene.
