The grifters set their sights on Anthony Westley, an American collector of Hollywood memorabilia. Posing as a vendor of such collectibles, with Arthur as his middle man, Danny tells Westley the famous "HOLLYWOOD" sign is available. Not having thought about it much before blurting out its availability, Danny, Arthur, Ash and Stacey soon find themselves in Los Angeles doing what they seem to do best - improvising and making it up as they go along. Westley is no fool however - he has a reputation for playing dirty and doesn't hesitate to break the law if it means he will get what he wants. He forces the hucksters to be nimble and overcome several barriers he puts in front of them but in the end, they show they've been one step ahead of him every step of the way. Written by

However the episode is correct that one needs special permission to get close access to the sign. See more
The team has landed at Los Angeles International Airport. Ash has gone to find transport. As Danny describes the "plan" his words are heard in a faint echo after he speaks.
"Think big. Big things happen"
