  • Love, treachery, and thick accents blend in a fine entry.

    Bart gets robbed and shanghaied by a wealthy crook in San Francisco at the beginning of this episode, which is based on an actual historical swindle. After ending up in New Orleans, he meets a pair of displaced French noble ladies and makes a deal with them to help him get his revenge. Naturally, it is Bart's con-man expertise that enables him to figure out the swindle and set things right, not just for himself but for the intended investor-victims, as well as his two accomplices, both of whom end up engaged at the end. The usual clever dialog and strong acting make this episode another solid entry in the series. Although, what's with the ship captain's accent?
