Randall and Hopkirk: For the Girl Who Has Everything

Millionaire Kim Wentworth thinks her house, Crake Castle, is haunted, so she hires self-proclaimed "ghost hunter" James McAllister to find the ghost. McAllister (who cannot detect Marty standing next to him) offers Jeff a share of his fee to prove that the "ghost" at the castle is a phony. Jeff takes the job -- then McAllister is murdered.

Episode Goofs
Marty's watchband, which is normally white, is black through most of this episode.

Marty calls Mrs. Pleasance by her name but he is never introduced to her or told her name.

It is obvious that Kim is not firing the gun when she shoots her husband.

Marty moves the curtain with his hand at Mrs. Pleasance's.

Cultural References
(After Marty finds a room behind the bookcase)
Marty: A plain room, no way out.
Jeff: A priest hole.
Marty: A what?
Jeff: A place where they used to hide during the Persecution.

In an edict in 1559, Queen Elizabeth I banned Catholic Masses. This led to a prolonged period of open persecution of Catholics. Houses and castles owned by Catholics had "priest holes" built in them where clergymen could hide. Church relics were also hidden; and, in larger priest holes, church services were conducted. The persecution continued through the reign of King James I in the early 17th century.

Jean-Claude: May I speak with you, Monsieur?
Jeff: Sure. Asseyez-vous.

Asseyez-vous is French for "have a seat" (literally translated: "you sit").
