Episode Summary

Picnic with Death

Peter is now front-page news after being involved in a car accident and the press won't give him a moment's peace. In the meantime, Sally brings home a friend who's convinced her step-father and his sister are trying to murder her mom. The siblings are deep in debt because of Foxgrange, the family estate, and her mother refuses to pour any more of her wealth into the property. At first, Peter thinks the young girl is simply overreacting, but he decides to investigate anyhow.

    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Peter: The fact that I'm invisible is no excuse for being unpunctual.

      • Peter: If I could drive my own car, you wouldn't have to put up with me.
        Minder: No dice. You're not allowed to drive. Chief's orders. You're an official secret.
        Peter: Chief's Orders? Security? You people forget that I'm a human being. I'm surprised that I haven't been Government-stamped and filed away in a top secret file.

      • Reporter: We've got orders to stay right here and get a picture and a statement.
        Peter: If you think you can take a picture of an invisible man, take it. I'm right here.
        Reporter: Oh, maybe a statement will be better.
        Peter: Okay, I'm invisible. I didn't intend to be, I don't like it. Furthermore I want to stop being invisible. Therefore I've got a lot of work to do and no time for stunts. Good day!
