  • I know TV is supposed to be fantasy, but man, there were some major errors in this episode preventing me from enjoying the show.

    White Collar is usually fun to watch. It's filmed well, the locations are stunning, the acting is decent, and what's not to like about the secret world of con men with their funny names for cons? I understand that when watching TV, you need to suspend your disbelief and don't let the small things break you out of the moment. That said: there was a huge plot blunder with this episode that almost made me stand up and leave the room.

    ** Spoiler Alert **

    Supposedly, the arch-villain for the season found a scuttled German WWII U-boat. He raised the U-boat and kidnapped Neal to safe-crack the U-boat which is riddled with explosive booby-traps. They open up some crates and find over a billion dollars worth of lost art.

    So, how did the paintings survive underwater in seawater when they were stored in regular shipping crates!?! They should of all been destroyed. Also, TNT sticks back then were wrapped in a sort of cardboard. TNT would not of survived in that form underwater. It would of disintegrated. Also, the ENIGMA machine would of rusted to the point of uselessness. Boo! I say Boo! Couldn't they of just made it a secret cellar in Argentina instead of using a pristine U-Boat with magical water-proof wooden crates (that were still neatly stacked) ARG!moreless

  • QUOTES (10)

    • Mozzie: A sunken U-boat. What could be better than this?
      Peter: What do you think is in it?
      Mozzie: Ah, that is the question, isn't it? Plutonium would be an educated guess. You know they had the bomb years before we did.
      Peter: Guess I missed that chapter in world history.
      Mozzie: Yeah, of course you did. It could also contain Hitler clones.
      Peter: (to Neal) Is he serious?
      Neal: Unfortunately, yes. Mozzie, the antenna.
      Mozzie: Hold on. It's got to warm up. Another possibility...
      Peter: Let it be a surprise.

    • Mozzie: Look, I'm holding five fake Rolexes. If I get shaken down, I've got a government-stamped barcode on the back of my neck.

    • Neal: Usually I'd bring this business to Alex, but I can't find her.
      Teddy Eames: Well, I would check the Interpol website. Apparently, she's all over it.

    • Peter: Watches?
      Mozzie: Oh.
      Peter: Money?
      Mozzie: What money?
      Peter: The $300 Eames gave you.
      Mozzie: What $300 Eames gave me?
      (Peter looks at Neal who shrugs)
      Peter: Thanks for the help.
      Mozzie: Anytime, Serpico.
      Peter: Buy Jones lunch.
      Mozzie: We'll see.

    • Alex: This is part of a plan, right? You let yourselves get caught then the FBI rides to the rescue.
      Peter: You got the first part right.

    • Sara: Neal? (Mozzie opens the door) Not Neal.
      Mozzie: And you're not a strawberry blonde with a penchant for Voltaire. I guess we're both disappointed.

    • Mozzie: I get it. We're fascinating creatures. We live a life of danger. It's exciting, slightly erotic. But with guys like us, you find yourself always trying to stay a step ahead. You relax once, let down your guard, and it all goes away.
      Sara: You paint a very tragic picture.
      Mozzie: Ah. One person's tragedy is another person's excitement.

    • Neal: You have a favorite color?
      Peter: Oh, funny. This is your skill set, not mine.
      Neal: All right, beige is usually neutral or bluff wire.
      Peter: Usually?
      Neal: I don't know if they bluffed with wire 60 years ago. The live ones should be the silver or the black.
      Peter: El's favorite color is purple.
      Neal: That doesn't help.

    • Peter: If I see jars of fetuses with little black mustaches, I'm turning around.
      Neal: I don't think this is the one carrying Hitler clones.

    • Diana: We're not abducting you.
      Mozzie: Can I get out?
      Jones: No.
      Mozzie: Well, then it feels like an abduction.
