The Lone Gunmen - Bond, Jimmy Bond
Russian criminals posing as a charity known as P.O.E, a shell organization hiring and killing master hacker (and golf enthusiast) Alan Goldsmith to steal $50 mil to help purchase nerve gas to kill an enemy country don't anticipate trouble from The Lone Gunmen, unknowingly kidnapping Langly couldn't have been a worse mistake. TLG seize an opportunity when a young man named Jimmy Bond, whose "football for the blind" charity project paid for by anonymous backing temporarily (unbeknownst to Jimmy) is enraged by P.O.E.'s chicanery, successfully infiltrating their estate through his usual dimbulb fashion. Jimmy with a device in hand hidden on his person (that the Russians wouldn't frisk him tells you a bit about their lack of real intuition or ability to recognize any serious threat to their operation) allows Langly to communicate with his peeps, outside the gates of the estate, so they can feign stealing $50 mil for the Russians, by transferring the funds in an account soon to be drained by TLG's rival/ally, Yves.
The episode includes TLG meeting Alan's mom so they can learn of who he might have encountered that'd be responsible for killing him. Langly with his nausea due to bad gas siphoning skills ruins Alan's golf bag (TLG is seemingly going through a financial crisis) by vomiting in it, and constantly running out of gas offer light hearted moments. The show clearly wants to be silly and fun, and it's heroes (as evident by the opening faux martial arts shenanigans regarding an covert eco operation involving whaling fleet) are a comic trio to get behind, motivated to investigate and publish wrongdoing. How far will they go to provide their readers with the truth, putting it all on the line? Langly proves that by putting his own life in jeopardy. Yves flirts with being a hero, but her greed once again arises, leaving Frohike to be disappointed (yet again). TLG prove to be adept at infiltration and escape. Jimmy becomes a regular as a potential benefactor for TLG...his heart is in the right place but he's not the sharpest tool in the shed. Langly wanted to flash a little flesh for their paper, but Byers isn't supportive of sinking that low to bring in new readers, while Frohike momentarily gives it some thought!

Doctor Gogol: Did you ever hear of Galatea?
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: Gala - who? Not wanting a statue of him, are you?
Doctor Gogol: I don't want a statue of Galatea. You see, she was a statue herself. Pygmalion formed her. Out of marble, not wax. And then she came to life in his arms.
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [calling to his assistant] Start the motor, Henry. There's queer people on the streets of Montmartre at this time of night.
Doctor Gogol: [handing him his card] Here, a hundred francs if you deliver the statue to my house.
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [reading card] It's a go, Dr. Go... gol. First thing in the morning.
