How you doing today, sir?
Very well, thanks.
I hope you're not admiring your own work.
I wish I was. But I got a pretty good alibi.
I was working with you yesterday.
I'll be sure to back you up when we talk to the Lamson Gallery.
The curator is waiting for us upstairs.
I love a good art heist.
Solving a good art heist.
That's what I said.
Let me see that.
Lewis Thayer's "untitled #2." It's worth $4 million.
You'd think for that kind of money he'd have bothered to come up with a title.
It is one of his seminal pieces.
Is it a fad or talent that drives up the price?
Don't try to understand the peculiarities of the pop-art market.
Would you pay $4 million for that?
Yeah. You're the wrong guy to ask.
Miss Jeffries, I'm Special Agent Burke.
This is Neal Caffrey.
How you doing?
Tell us what happened.
Well, as you can see, the "untitled #2" was simply cut out of its frame.
How does someone pull a down-and-dirty slash and grab from a major gallery?
down-and-dirty あからさまな slash 切りつける
It's one of the few options left if you want to knock over a high-security...
I was talking to her.
Mr. Caffrey's right.
We have sensors in the frame, but nothing attached to the canvas.
Cutting it out of the frame circumvents the alarms.
The theft occurred during our daily security-tape swap.
So we're not dealing with complete amateurs.
No. Actually, it sounds like a pretty good plan.
What are the odds you'll be able to recover the painting?
What are the odds どのくらいの確率
Well, it would have made my job a lot easier if you had kept it from the press.
Do we think our thieves called it in?
Headlines attract black-market buyers.
Which means they want to move the painting quickly.
I can ask around.
Run your street contacts. Diana, you've got Europe. Check with Interpol. Jones, you're on Asia. Check with the Alat over there.
Do you mind?
I need to check my street contacts.
He's good at this kind of thing.
You sure he didn't do it?
Slash and grab.
Frame's too high.
Hey, Moz, the Lamson is missing a Thayer.
I didn't steal it.
All right. I'm on it.
What are you doing here?
I said meet me in an hour.
And you found a source in less than an hour.
That's pretty quick, Moz.
I only deal with professionals.
And you asked about a reward, which you never ask about.
So I'm starting to think you're talking to somebody else and not telling me.
Who's your fence, Moz?
I'm friends with many people of unsavory character.
How long you been talking to her?
I know not of who you speak.
Sorry. Meeting aborted.
My sources spook easily.
They have to think I'm a vault.
Sounds like the meeting's still on.
I can't believe I'm saying this.
I saw a mockingbird in the park.
What color was the mockingbird?
The bird died. Let's go.
What are you doing here, Alex?
I've never known you to go skulking around after reward money.
Well, after the plane blew up, a lot of people were asking questions.
I'm trying to stay off the radar.
stay off 遠ざかっている
Makes it hard to find work.
You came to Mozzie, not to me?
He's not tethered to the FBI.
Two taps meant "abort," by the way.
Or you could have just yelled "abort."
I found the missing Thayer painting.
It was fenced in Dubai.
But you didn't come all this way just to say that.
What are you really doing here, Alex?
I needed to talk to Mozzie. Alone.
What did I do?
We're not friends anymore?
What's up, Peter?
Got news about the painting.
Meet me in the office.
On my way.
Got to go back to the office.
We'll talk later.
What are we talking about?
I've got a big problem.
Great, great. Overnight it.
I found the painting.
How did you find it? I found it.
It was fenced to a textile magnate in Dubai.
textile 織物 magnate 大物
A hotel heiress in Budapest just turned hers in.
You found the painting overseas.
Scotland yard has it.
It's also in Dubai and Budapest.
All of them?
How do you know?
Because customs clamps down when a theft occurs.
clamp down 取り締まる
The risks of getting the original out are too high.
But if you make forgeries ahead of time and take them out of the country before the heist, you're in the clear.
ahead of time 前もって in the clear 自由の身で
Steal the Thayer, leak the theft to the press, then sell the forgeries.
And the original never leaves the country.
You've seen this scam before?
I know someone who...
Allegedly pulled it off before.
We have a copycat on our hands.
Who are they copycatting?
So you've confirmed, these are all forgeries.
Yes. All of them.
I don't think our forger went off a photograph.
I think they stood in front of the original when they painted these.
How do you know that?
Thayer used the "Ben-Day dots" method to show shading.
He spread paint across a paper stencil and pushed it against the canvas with a brush.
The shadowing in these paintings is more deliberate.
It's minute, but these dots grow starker at the bottom.
minute 取るに足りない stark 粗い
The forger probably started these in afternoon light, when the color was slightly more red.
They also didn't realize they caught the painting when the light was pouring directly down on it, causing a deeper contrast at the bottom.
There's no lighting overhead.
Was this painting ever hanging below that skylight?
In late April.
We had a pop-art show.
We wanted to display the Thayer prominently.
Then we should check the registration log for April.
Probably looking for a student... talented but still experimenting with technique.
Someone like Justin Magary from East Side University.
He stopped by on the 21st of April at 1:45.
That would be afternoon light.
