      • Chief: Well, look alive, Gumshoes! Eartha and the torch are in Nairobi! Go find 'em!

      • Eartha: I still can't find a stadium big enough to hold my games.
        Carmen: Take the torch to one of my favorite capitals in eastern Europe, home to great writers like Kafka. Great composers like Dvoøák. Great--
        Eartha: Uh, Carmen, what about my games?
        Carmen: Ah, yes. Your games. Well, the world's largest open stadium is located there. And while you're at it, try to hire Martina Navratilova. She was born in this city.
        Eartha: Who's she?
        Carmen: The tennis champion. One of the biggest money winners in women's sports. Don't you read the paper?
        Eartha: Only the comics.

      • Mrs. Pumpkinclanger: I've had enough of this!
        Greg: Must be our upstairs neighbor, Mrs. Pumpkinclanger. (enters the alley and looks up at Mrs. Pumpkinclanger) Hi, Mrs. Pumpkinclanger.
        Mrs. Pumpkinclanger: That bruiser has gone to the Highland games on the Isle of Skye. She's tossing about a 15 foot tree trunk called a caber. Now, cease your incessant meandering and go apprehend her!
        (she shuts her window)
        Greg: Thanks. Thanks. Great hair. Love your hair.

      • Eartha: Hey, Gumshoe! Carmen double-crossed me, so I'm gonna get even! Look for her in Asia.

    • NOTES (2)

        Mrs. Pumpkinclanger
        American Gladiators Ice and Gemini

      • This is the first of very few episodes in which a Gumshoe has 60 seconds instead of the usual 45 in the bonus round to capture Carmen Sandiego on a map of Asia. After this season, the the Gumshoe will have the usual time no matter what map is used.
