I found the last sentence weird as well.. used google translate and i get:
'After this village, no this shop'
So should translation be something like 'After passing through this village there aren't any more of this kind of shop'...?

Is this sentence correct in the grammar section?
should it have a 不 somewhere after the question? ie.

check out this link for better explanation on the uses of complement 起来:
赶紧 vs 赶快 both mean hurry but as explained by Jenny in Mandarin 赶紧 is used in Northern China and 赶快 is used in Southern China
嗓门 and 嗓子 have same meaning but 嗓门 is the expression that is used in Northern China
喉咙 is specifically used just to mean throat
瞧瞧 and 看看 have same meaning but 瞧瞧 is the expression that is used in Northern China
玩意儿 is specific to little things, cute things, children etc. (thats the impression i get anyway...)
I might be wrong but I think 俩 is a specific measure word used for two people and 两 is used as a more general measure word
“这个玩意儿" as the dialogue is colloquial, I dont think its necessary to have 个 added as it would normally be omitted in natural conversation.
Hope this is of some use and makes things a bit clearer :)

its not really official english but an abbreviation of 'I Owe You'. Not sure about other countries but if its used in UK, people will understand the context.
