The mysterious handcuffed briefcase and forget 007
21 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Invasion" is one of the best remembered episodes, with Gilligan reeling in a locked attache case with handcuffs, indicating that top secret government documents must be inside that any secret agent would have given up his life to safeguard. After he accidentally handcuffs himself to the case, he realizes that enemy spies will now target him for knowing too much: "that's the first time I've been accused of that!" This leads into one of the series' most celebrated dream sequences, Gilligan as secret agent 014 (as opposed to James Bond's 007), a bald Mr. Howell the treacherous Mr. Evil, Lovey, Mary Ann, and Ginger all Evil agents. Most surprising of all is the Skipper as 014's mother, forced to consume his own soup as punishment!
