Episode Quotes
Simon: A Persian poet once said, "A woman's eyes are all the jewels she needed." I'm afraid not many of the dowagers, divorcees, and wealthy widows who flock to Cannes during the season to agree to him. Can you wonder the place is a magnet for every top crook in the business? They take time and trouble to select their victims, and each has his own way of operating. Take the Flyman, for instance. Perhaps not the most spectacular, but certainly the most dangerous.
