S01E05. The Legacy
Original Broadcast Date: 27 November 1988
Phelps talks to the attendant (Chuck McKinney) at an amusement park's roller coaster.
Phelps: They say this thing goes 60 miles an hour. It sounds exciting.
Attendant: Well, it depends on how much excitement you want.
Phelps: Some people never get enough.
Attendant: Hey, if speed's your thing, here, take my car. [He throws his car keys at Phelps, who catches them.] It'll make this thing look like slow motion.
Phelps goes to the nearby parking lot and enters the attendant's car. The recorder is on the front seat. Password is 958.
Good morning, Jim. In the last day's of Adolf Hitler's life, before he committed suicide to avoid capture, he organized a secret plan, a legacy that he hoped would enable a future generation of Nazis to accomplish what he had failed to do. That legacy was a horde of gold looted from the cathedrals and castles of Europe, and worth $5 billion on today's markets. It was hidden away and has never been found. Only four of Hitler's trusted officers knew where the gold was hidden, a secret that's been handed down from father to son to grandson. We believe that the four grandsons are now ready to claim the fortune and use it to fund terrorism and other activities to revive a Nazi movement in Western Europe. Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to find that gold before they can get to it. As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This disc will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.
Phelps closes the recorder and leaves it on the seat. Smoke billows from inside it.
