Episode Summary

A Case of Red Turnips
Noah gets Al out of bed at 1:30 in the morning to watch "The Red Turnips", an avant-garde film made by Lester V. Griffin. Al wants to know why, and Noah tells him that all of his questions will be answered, except for one, maybe, "How do we prevent Al Mundy from being killed within the next 48 hours?". Griffin unknowingly filmed 11 S.I.A. agents making the most important drop in Sector 3, behind the Iron Curtain. One agent was killed already because of the film. Al has to go to the LaPalma Film Festival, where the film is being shown, and with only 48 hours to go before the film's official screening, steal the only existing print of "The Red Turnips" before any more S.I.A. agents are killed, and before any enemies of the U.S. can get their hands on it. Noah tells Al not to worry about the job, because he's sending along the best man the S.I.A. has. Al asks, "Who?" and Noah answers, "Me!"moreless
