Episode Quotes
Simon: A funny thing about people is, they always put their safe behind a Renoir. So where's the Renoir? Ah. Can't be right every time. Now there's a clue. I thought so. It has been said on more occasions than you and I have had eggs for breakfast that crime does not pay. Well, I and this little-bitty safe here are going to prove that it does pay, and pay handsomely, to the tune of 250,000 pounds. Ah. Of course, when people are as careless as this with their property, it's ridiculously easy.
