EDIT
Art for Art's Sake
AIRED:
While Lord Charles Sutcliffe is attempting to return the Drahova triptych, an ancient Christian depiction of the Madonna, to Milos Jansan, the prime minister of Drahova, four masked gunmen show up to steal the item after deactivating the security protocols. Milos calls Alexander, an old friend, who takes the first flight to London after being stonewalled by the British Home Secretary. Peter, Nikki and Luke also head to London where each uses their contacts to attempt to locate the triptych. Nikki and Luke are able to find the men who stole the triptych and the man who was involved in replicating it, but Peter hits a brick wall with an old associate, Inspector Luther, who is determined to believe that Milos is guilty.moreless

    • QUOTES (5)

      • J.J.: If you're so interested in freedom, why do some of us still get stuck serving coffee?
        Luke Brenner: Because you are so darn good at it, J.J.

      • Milos Jansan: I sometimes wonder how you can speak of faith after the loss of your wife.
        Alexander Addington: You know, it's a funny thing. Faith was never an issue until Chantal was taken. Now it seems I have very little else.

      • Luke Brenner: Ah, geez, I'm really going to miss visiting the museum.
        Peter Sinclair: That's what I love about you, Luke, is your insatiable appetitte for knowledge.
        Nikki Beaumont: Luke is known for his insatiable attitude. (Peter chuckles)

      • Luke Brenner: If the cab driver had driver had driven any slower, he'd be going backwards.
        Nikki Beaumont: Traffic was bumper to bumper, how do you suggest he got us here faster?
        Luke Brenner: With shortcuts. What do you think sidewalks are for?
        Peter Sinclair: The terrifying thing is ... he means it.

      • (Ending morale.)
        Alexander Addington: Why should we think an old family name exempts us from our weaknesses? Pride and greed are as common in princes as they are in paupers.

      • The artifact stolen in this episode, a triptych, is a work of art, typically three painted or carved panels, that are connected (usually hinged) together. Triptychs were most commonly seen in Churches during the Gothic period, and in art during the Renaissance period.
