Peter keeps the unclosed treasure file hanging over Neal's head, so he's eager to prove himself virtually indispensable.

A link to an untouchable crime baron convinces Peter to take the case as 'first grip'. Neal gets in impersonating the sick poetry teacher's temp Cooper while Peter pretends to be looking for a school for his brilliant rascal son. Written by KGF Vissers

This was great!
24 January 2012 | by (California) – See all my reviews

This episode is magnificent! i love Elizabeth Gillies and Graham Phillips and they were adorable together!i love how this is a fancy prep school. the basic father protective of daughter bit and Chloe's "teacher" liking. The plot line was great and everyone played their parts perfectly! and i love the romance between Even and Chloe because in actual life the are only best friends. this episode was just amazing and Chloe was like so flirty with the "teacher" who actually isn't a teacher at all. If Even didn't come to the FBI to talk about his finical aid then Neil wouldn't have ever can to help him get closer to Chloe. this is just a magnificent episode and to get the full effect of it you must watch it!
