Episode Summary

The Galloping Skin Game
Al flies to Rome to recover a top secret mutual defense treaty with Latavia, which was stolen. Noah wants Al to steal it back when the treaty passes through an intermediary, Nick Grobbo, a fence Al handled before by fouling up his Palium deal. Nick is handling this deal to square things with the Russians, who almost killed him over that deal. The treaty, disguised as technical documents, will be passed at a convention of doctors all carrying similar documents. Al decides to steal the Kimberly Diamond, 70 carats and worth $1,000,000, as his cover as to why he is in Rome, and as a way to get to Nick, who this time doesn't trust Al, but can't resist a chance at the diamond. To confuse Nick, Al sends 15 fake doctors with 15 fake treaties to Nick's room during the hour that the real treaty is to be delivered. Nick figures this out and decides to deliver all 15 treaties to the buyer and let him determine the "real" one. Unfortunately for Nick, Al makes sure that the real treaty never makes it through!moreless
