Danny and Mickey have been bickering of late so Albert suggests they undertake the Henderson challenge, named after a New York con man who wanted to prove he was the best con man anywhere. The challenge is relatively simple: Mickey and Danny will be dropped off at noon in a very public location stark naked and have until 6 pm to make as much money as possible. The one with the most money wins. The two of them are soon running through Trafalgar Square in their birthday suits and the contest has begun. Danny focuses on what he does best - the short con, making a few hundred quid here and there. Mickey has a different approach and decides to get at a mark he has held in reserve to make one quick, but large, bundle. At the end of it all, they not only surprise themselves but Albert has a bit of news for them as well. Written by garykmcd

A battle of wits for the position of leader.
25 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While the team waits a day for a mark to deliver their money, they start looking for something to do, and Danny, as usual, is claiming that he's the better conman than Mickey. Albert puts it to the two of them that they should settle it once and for all with a contest. They'll both be dropped off in the middle of London, naked, with nothing but their wits. Whoever gets back to the apartment with the most money wins.

Sounds simple, right? Of course, as usual, it's never that simple. This is one of the more enjoyable episodes, due in large part to the great chemistry of Danny and Mickey. There aren't a lot of surprises in this episode, but even so, it works, and it works well.
