1.3 Picture Perfect

While the team sets up a con involving the forgery of a work of art, they also have to deal with a possible jinx hanging over all of them because Albert and Ash mistakenly cleaned out a man who had less money than it seemed.


This episode picks up exactly where the last one left off. Danny, just about to leave hospital, overhears a woman talking about "…100 thousand dollars…", and starts putting together a little plan.

Forgeries, swapping paintings…this episode has all the elements of the classic art con, with a number of double-crosses thrown in.

Memorable Moments

  • Stacie’s con involves walking into a museum, claiming to be a groupie, and wearing provocative clothing, including a tight-fitting t-shirt with a print of one of the artworks currently on display. After Mickey steals the print, she pastes it onto her shirt and just walks out
  • Danny deciding to let the money rain down
  • The closing tracking shot of the team walking down the street together

Quotable Quotes

"We thought he could afford to be fleeced. We ripped him off in good faith!"
- Albert

Albert: Nobody does it better.
Ash: Makes me feel bad for the rest.
