Episode Summary

EDIT
The Eiffel Missile
AIRED:
Arriving back in England at the airport, James Bond Jr spots S.C.U.M. agent Skullcap being searched by the security guards. As soon as he spots Young Bond, the hard-headed henchman makes a run for it. Bond tries to stop him, but the villain steals a private jet. As he takes off down the runway Bond chases him in a flight-o-stairs. The plane ends up hitting the vehicle and picking it up on it's wing! Skullcap tilts the plane on it's side causing the flight-o-stairs to fall, but not before Young Bond jumped to the wing. Climbing aboard the aircraft, Bond is attacked by Skullcap, but during the fight the terrorist drops an envelope containing plans for a project called the Achilles missile. Bond retrieves these blueprints and escapes using the plane's ejector seat, leaving Skullcap aboard the aircraft as it goes out of control. Parachuting through the sky, Bond lands at Warfield just in time for Soccer practice... Later that day, Bond learns that the school trip to Paris has been canceled for safety reasons. Reports indicate that terrorists have smuggled a nuclear warhead into Paris. A warhead? Like the Achilles missile, perhaps? Bond is convinced that there's a connection between Skullcap and the theft of the nuclear warhead, and is deter minded to head for Paris. According to Mitchell, the front gate security guard always goes for coffee at 3am. Using this as their opportunity, Bond, IQ, Gordo, Tracy and Phoebe sneak out of Warfield and head for Paris via hovercraft. Along the way, Bond notices a woman with a pencil and a ink sketch of 007's nephew himself. The girl, Marcie Beaucoup, claims she is a art student and was sketching Bond's likeness. But as soon as the girl leaves, the hovercraft is attacked by Skullcap in a helicopter gunship! He blows up the bridge, sending the hovercraft on a head on collision with a giant rock! Bond at the last minute takes the controls and steers the hovercraft out the way! SkullCap fires a laser, but IQ reflects the beam with a waiters tray. The laser hits Skullcap's chopper causing it to loose altitude. But the villain doesn't give up, he chases the hovercraft to land and through the forest. Unable to get a clear shot through all the trees, Skullcap reduces to heat seeking missiles! Before the villain can fire, our heroes pour out a trail of oil on the forest floor and ignite the fuel drums with a flare gun. The heat seeking missile flies into the fire, as does Skullcap's chopper... The group make it to Paris, there Bond spots an artist painting a impressionist painting of the Eiffel Tower. Bond tests the girl by saying he admires the painting, and describes the artwork as an expressionist, Marcie agrees saying they are very expressive... According to the missile documents, the rocket needs a gantry to be fired from, so our heroes begin looking for a gantry. Hmm, tall, made of steel, what in Paris could be used as a gantry...? Later that night, Bond decides to take Miss Beaucoup out to dinner on a formal paddle steamer. Tracy doesn't trust her, nor does IQ who provides James Bond Jr with a sword hidden inside a loaf of French bread, a land mine disguised as a beret and a wristwatch that admits sends a homing signal to IQ's wristwatch. The watch also includes a acetylene torch. At dinner, Bond questions Marcie about who she really is. But before he can get any information out of her they are again ambushed, this time by Skullcap and Dr. Derange-- the man behind the plans for the rocket. The girl helps Bond fight the two criminals which leads Bond to the conclusion that she is on his side. After sending the two men overboard, Marcie explains that her father works for the French Police, she is helping her dad find the warhead. Earlier they received a girl from Mr. Mitchell informing them of Young Bond's arrival which is why Marcie was on the hovercraft in the first place. The two suddenly spot Dr. Derange and Skullcap escaping through the sewers, Bond and the girl follow them. Marcie explains she knows every inch of the sewer tunnels, but they loose the two agents of S.C.U.M. Marcie feels guilty that they lost them and thinks maybe she should stick to showing tourists the Eiffel Tower. Of course, the Eiffel Tower! The perfect gantry for the missile! After traveling through a series of sewer tunnels, the two find the bomb in a deep silo beneath the tower, but before they can act Bond and Marcie are captured and strapped to the bomb. Drerange reveals his plan, to plots to destroy Moscow with the nuclear missile. The firing of the rocket will be traced back to Paris, thus allowing the blame to fall on the French. The countdown begins, Derange expects Young Bond to die, along with millions of innocent Russians. But Bond manages to escape using the acetylene torch IQ built into Bond's watch. Bond and the girl escape, but before the missile fires, Bond manages to remove it's guidance circuitry and causing the it to fly harmlessly into the cosmos.moreless
