We left Laura and Steele discussing spearguns.
Mr. Steele wants his.
Meanwhile, back in the lobby …
… the security chief (?) is fondling his dentures again.
Mr. Steele has retrieved his gun and takes careful aim.
Nice shot, Mr. Steele!
Steele instructs Laura to “pull this through, gently.” (Insert your own dirty joke here.)
He affixes a grappling hook (insert your own dirty joke here) to the line and sends it on its way.
Uh, oh. Looks like Mr. Steele missed the sign that said, “Please don’t touch, stand on, or use the art as a zipline base.”
“You’ve done this before, haven’t you?” Laura remarks astutely.
“What makes you think that?”
Pretty sure that’s not how you’re supposed to wear a fanny pack, Mr. Steele.
And awaaaay! (You can just barely see Pierce Brosnan’s sh**-eating grin as he does this.)
Now it’s Laura’s turn. Launch …
… and soar! (I wouldn’t have guessed Laura was a swinger.)
She comes in for a landing in Mr. Steele’s arms. Nice work if you can get it!
“Stimulating, wasn’t it?” Steele says.
“Different,” she responds.
“Shall we continue?”
Double entendre much?
Mr. Steele can’t help but grin a little as he follows her. This woman is something else!
This is such a James Bondesque scene! I bet Brosnan and Zimbalist, who did many of their own stunts in the series, had a blast doing this. I think Laura is kind of getting into this stuff. It sure beats waiting in the car with Murphy! Steele seems to enjoy introducing Laura to his area of expertise, perhaps anticipating the rush she’ll get from it. Raise your hand if you think Laura was a little disappointed that they went in the service entrance instead of the skylight.
