– Where do these guns keep coming from?

– I get ’em wholesale.

This month, we’re watching The Persuaders! Season 1 Episode 17, Five Miles to Midnight, in which TV’s Roger Moore and sometime lady saxophonist Tony Curtis team up with Joan Collins to smuggle some guy out of Italy, accompanied by a series of excellent jokes written by Terry Nation.

– You wouldn’t trust your mother, would you?

– Her least of all. She used to spy for the Egyptians.

Must be Christmas. Everyone wants to give me things.

A skeleton flies a plane into a Scottish forest, and in that plane Rodge and Tony find a secret formula that will make all fossil fuels obsolete! Soon people are throwing punches, girls and million-dollar contracts at them both, but with the mystery of the skeletal aviator still unsolved, they have no alternative but to wait for the fabulous Nicola Pagett to sort it all out for them.

The Rogertainment continues with Episode 13 of The Persuaders! (1972) — The Long Goodbye
