Thou Shalt Not Steele – 13

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!

spoileralert emoticonMr. Steele’s facility with weapons seems to vary with the situation. We’ll see him make incredible shots … and also, inexplicably, unable to hit the broad side of a barn.


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.

    One of my favorite scenes in the whole series. It is another piece of evidence that things between Laura and Steele should work professionally and personally. And I give you two hands up and the whole hokey-pokey that Laura was not only disappointed but would have created the need to go through the skylight if given the time…SPOILER ALERT…. I love the role reversal in Steele in Circulation where she does the convincing to break in and on a much grander scale.

    My heart races and skips everytime I watch this scene. And it has nothing to do with the fear they might get caught in the museum and everything to do with their chemistry. If Murphy ever had a chance with her, after this he’s toast.

    I also love this scene – their chemistry is palpable, and I think neither of them wanted to let go too soon. I also agree that Laura would have preferred the more adventurous way to break into the building. She’s got a lot to learn about this thieving business!! Oh, and so right about poor Murphy – he’s toast – plain, white-bread toast!!

    Love this scene!!!
    They are great doing their own stunts in the series!!! That’s one of the things that I love about those two adorable young actors while doing the series. They rise the emotion up to unlimited places, and always mixing excitement with romance and humor in the same scene.

    I remember Stephanie saying something about having some trouble with her pants while taping a scene in which she jumped in Pierce’s arms, and he telling her something like “Nice to see your smiling face!”. Maybe it would be this one?

      I also love that they do most of their own stunt work! I think it makes their portrayal more real and closer to their characters. I’m sure most of you know that Stephanie was made an honorary member of the Stuntwoman’s Association because of all the work she did herself on RS!!

    Not sure if I can post a link to this picture – but my kid and I recently got the Lego “Museum Break In” set (I won’t even pretend it was just for him) and I was thinking of this scene as we were playing with it yesterday. They show the robbers using the skylights but my son thought it made more sense for them to go in the front door and disable the lasers

    Hands up and feet too. Laura wanted more excitement than unlocking a door with the key. Her life has changed more since he came on the scene than any other time. Her life with him is exciting, dangerous, and romantic. Yup Murphy will always be in the car.

    This IS my favorite scene when she lands in his arms and they stare into each other’s eyes. You can feel gamma rays emitting from the tv. Sizzzzzzle.

    Steele is like croissant crust with dark chocolate Grenache filling, whipped cream and dizzled chocolate liquor. Huh I don’t like bread that much so I substitute with chocolate.
