  • King George

    Leverage seemed to be getting off track with some questionable episodes as of late, but this was definitely a step up from them. You had a Sophie storyline here, but it actually delivered,something that surprised even me.

    James Frain guest starred, apparently that guy is contractually bound to appear on every TV show for the next 5 years.

    Leverage was good here because they stuck to the con. They let the unique characters come out and show their distinct personalities because of what was happening. They did not try to shove them down the throats of people while they were watching, a problem they have often made in the past. That is why I think this episode was better.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Although the episode is set in London, England, the Claridge's papers use the American date format, and the auction programme uses a mixture of American and incorrect spelling, such as "molded," and "cottan" and "sleaves". As it is in England, the papers should be in English spelling, and the date format should be dd/mm/yyyy, not mm/dd/yyyy.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Parker: Yeah, but unlike a stolen Monet or the Rosalind Diamond, these pieces aren't registered or insured, so they're impossible to track. Man, I should've got into that years ago. (Everyone stares) Yeah. I mean before we went straight, of course.

    • Nate: Hardison, are you in their computers yet?
      Hardison: Accessing. Okay, a-apparently the computer system is also an antique. Possibly steam-powered, which would be cool.

    • Parker: (noting a statuary in a vault) Oh, hello. Last time I saw you was at the Louvre. Well, actually you were in the back seat of my car, but before that you were at the Louvre.
      Nate: Parker, focus!
      Parker: Okay.

    • Hardison: Small one is land purchases--old manor houses up for auction, all within the last two years, all in Scotland. Ha! Places like, uh...Loch Glengorra...and Loch McGr-r-r...I'm not even gonna try to pronounce it, man. It's just a bunch of random Gs and Ns.

    • Eliot: Who's the Duchess of Hanover?
      Hardison: And what's a lost barony?
      Parker: Can I keep the statue?
      Sophie: We have a lot of work to do--about 200 years' worth, actually.
      Nate: All right, guys, let's go steal a royal title.

    • Nate: The name of this con is called "The Mummy's Tiara."
      Hardison: Come on, man, that can't be real.
      Parker: Am I gonna have to steal a corpse again?

    • Eliot: What's that smell?
      Hardison: Uh, y-you don't want to know how they wet paper back in the day.
      Eliot: Did you...
      Hardison: Do not ask me, man.
      Eliot: Damn it, Hardison!
      Hardison: Why you so sensitive? You touch worse.
      Eliot: I'm going out for baba ghanoush!

  • NOTES (1)


    • Nate: You want to play a little Nick and Nora?

      Referencing Dashiell Hammett's literary creations, Nick and Nora Charles, who appeared in his 1934 novel The Thin Man. Nick is a former detective and Nora his wife, but a mystery draws him back into the business and the wisecracking couple go on to solve numerous mysteries. The novel serves as the basis for a six-film series starting in 1934, and a TV series in the 1950s. Despite the title, Nick Charles is in fact not the "Thin Man," who is a character in the novel and doesn't appear in any subsequent works.
