The Goodies attend Sotheby's spring art auction, and become disgruntled by the apparent loss of English culture and art to cashed up Americans. Tim makes a stand and purchases a Velazquez self portrait for an outrageous amount then tries to donate to the National gallery. The Minister is shocked; no one ever goes to the National gallery anymore, especially the English. The Goodies then launch a scheme to steal the other paintings from the gallery then claim the insurance money as a way to pay for the Velazquez painting. The scheme backfires when the Minister decides to close the gallery down altogether. They only have one painting, the Velazquez which is far too valuable to exhibit. News comes through announcing the Galley will reopen, but needs paintings. Graeme realizes the problem is the National Gallery needs to become more interesting. He sets about using the paintings as centerpieces for side show stalls. The scheme works so well the Minister dismisses the boys, leaving them penniless and still owing money on the original painting. In the end Tim fives up and offers to auction everything to cashed up Americans, effectively leaving everything exactly where it was before the Goodies got involved- Written by glen_chapman <firstname.lastname@example.org>
