Siblings, Tommy and Barbara Madsen, own "Gold to be Sold" where they buy, melt and refine gold for pennies on the dollar from gullible people all over the US. Bored and unappreciative of what he terms 18th Century cons, Hardison builds The Double-Promged Monkey Con. Using modern video gamer data, strategy and psychology, the con is a cross between Indiana Jones/archeology and Shanghai Tunnels of Doom/history. Nate knows a good plan must have 3 variables to work; he proves it in a letter. But 1003 variables are too unwieldy, causing Rage Quit. Nate shares his secret: many permutations to every plan; shoot for Plan A, settle for Plan J. Take the basics, dress it up to keep it fun and fresh and take down the mark. Finally, Hardison listens.

This episode references "Cantonese" writing. Cantonese is a spoken dialect, but used the same characters as other Chinese dialects in the 19th century. The "Cantonese" characters shown are actually simplified Chinese, something that only became common in mainland China during the the mid-late 20th century. Anyone even remotely familiar with China - let alone a scholar, would consequently have known the 19th century gold watch using 20th century characters to be a forgery. See more »


Alec Hardison: Go ahead, guys. Rock my world.
Nathan Ford: I thought you were on strike, Hardison. Why are you even here?
Alec Hardison: It's a mental strike. I'm not really here. I'm actually far, far away in my mind. Besides, who's gonna help Parker carry out all those gold bars? You know how much each one of those things weighs? They are heavyyyy.
