This episode is real amazing, it puts the word "Me" with gorgeous smile :) OMG I watch it for several time already.
This episode showed that Neal has super skill in observation plus his smart brain , just looking the fake painting, can tell when and how does it make. Even though he didn't go to college, but his skill is real master. I think if I were him I would be really happy. To come out with "be proud of himself" made the whole episode is so funny. The highlight is on the professor with his student can deliver a good lesson for the one who think they smart but actually somebody might be smarter than them. I love this plot , people become to see Neal as an expert, not just a criminal.
