%note%A script dated 51/07/20 is "The Man from Jaune Cache." It is listed in the David Victor Papers, 1938-1964, and can't be associated with a broadcast date. It seemed logical to assign this episode to this previously unknown title slot. There is an <aka> announced as "The Man from French Guiana" in the HSG recordings. The spoken word does not take precedence over the script title in this specific instance because the HSG recording is a mix of original and new work. Further, in the spoken word reference, Jaune Cache is identified as a city in French Guiana.

It had been converted and reconverted each time more luxuriously. It has carried princes of India, émigrés of Paris. It has flown every flag and sailed every sea and its deck has been washed by everything from champagne to the blood of a noble suicide. Yes, in the midst of our troubled and businesslike world this magnificent relic still exists and like a true internationalist, though its registry is meek, its present location is somewhere at anchor off a small, exclusive resort near Acapulco, Mexico. The name of this ship is Lazard Dore, Lézard of Gold and Mr. Valentine; it's the ship you're going to buy."

However Mr. Valentine, I'll waste my time by telling you the facts. I'm a prematurely retired lawyer, a tax consultant. Neighbors of mine out here in Fish Lake country name of Maum, elderly man and wife, they spent a penny once number of years ago on a lollypop. Let me tell you, the price of that penny is going to be more than a million dollars. In plain words, those nice people are going to be taken, but just to really mix you up; I think you and I can stop the swindle with a diamond bracelet. Now here's what I'd like you to do, telephone the Maums tell them you're a friend of mine…"

(:cell style='color: purple' :)"Dear sir, Mr. Valentine, dear Mr. [bird squawking] oh what will I say what will I write? How can I ever tell how exciting it is? This is the town of Millie's Wharf, yes Millie's Wharf and dear sir my name is Millie and as my fool husband used to say, [squawking] [Millie talking to parrot] shut up you skinny, cockeyed, brainless bird! Oh now did I hurt him little feelings? Poor dumb little parrot can't talk back. There, there stupid. Stupid! [squawking]…Nothing ever happens in Millie's Wharf, at least not since my last husband died, and that was years ago. Nobody of any importance lives here anymore but here we are situated on the historical old bay of island. Yesterday when I was gone pickin' blueberries my parrot, whose name is Cupid, and who steals things, and whose wings ain't clipped so he can fly, stole something. I don't know where he got it or how but it's a map. Here in this place where the Spanish ships used to come and on the map is a mark but why would anyone put a mark at a place on the water? Yes, out behind one of the islands where it's easy two fathoms. On this map there are arrows and directions and a great big, red "X". A map Mr. Valentine, and something underwater and an "X" to mark the spot."

Inside the coconut he grasps it, his hand makes a fist, but then Mr. Valentine he can't pull his hand out, the fist is too big. His greed is greater than his fear of the approaching hunter. Mr. Valentine, will you please come to visit me this evening, I need your help to complete the capture of the monkey. The monkey whose hand is already trapped. A monkey by the name of Lars Michelson."

Besides you've been here at the grotto farmhouse for almost a day now and you haven't found anything. Not a single thing. Not that you should have. Perhaps I was just hysterical this morning when I called you out here but now even the police seem to agree don't they? Mr. Muranga's death last evening was an accident. Yes, an accident. In so much as I appreciate your coming to help, why should you stay on? Sincerely, Emily Flood."

(:cell style='color: green ' :)Big Brother
(:cellnr style='color: green ' :)Description:
(:cell style='color: green ' :)Dove is such a nice girl with a brain like a sack of hammers, really? Every man thinks he's her big brother. There's some evidence that perhaps a blackmail scheme is afoot, perhaps some Photoshop work. Some hi tech "camera in the cab meter" does it every time.

(:cell style='color: green ' :)Not Available on recording. Robert "Bob" Bailey, Virginia Gregg, Gerald Mohr as Lou Mendel and doubles as the cab driver in the closing scene, Ken Christy as Lt. Johnson, John Hiestand (scene setting announcer), Eddie Dunstedter (composer, presenter), David Victor (writer), Jackson Gillis (writer)
(:cellnr style='color: green ' :)Host Introduction:
(:cell style='color: green ' :)"Say, I wonder if you like Runyonesque characters like I do. You know Harry the Horse, Nicely Nicely Johnson and all the rest. But don't get me wrong, this is not a Runyon story but a Let George Do It adventure. However, there is a character called Lou Mendel in this little tale that must have associated with the boys. Because you will see that plenty of Broadway has rubbed off on Lou. On top of that the boy's got trouble, so much so that even his trouble has trouble which is bad. So what is to do? Get in touch with George Valentine, which he does."
(:cellnr style='color: green ' :)Opening Line Introduction:
(:cell style='color: green ' :)"Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
(:cellnr style='color: green ' :)First Line:
(:cell style='color: green ' :)"My dear Mr. Valentine, my name is Lou Mendel, I own a night club, the club Top Hat, which I'm sure if you've ever been there you'll admit is a very high class place. It's not the type place where we have any trouble and everything is strictly above the board, which is where you fit into the picture puzzle Mr. Valentine. There is this girl whose name is Dove on account of she can't dance but I like to be big hearted. But as of to date, my big heart has got me nothing but a blow on the head. This is the essence of the puzzle. Who hit me? Even more important is what about Dove. She is somehow in the middle of the trouble and for such a nice girl I don't like it. Oh yes, this is a lot more than just what you may be thinking because poor little Dove you understand, looks upon me as her big brother."

When my sister wrote that she was meeting her husband's ship here in town, naturally I insisted that they be my guests. But, Mr. Valentine, the price of hospitality seems to run high. No sooner had I put the welcome mat out than the word must have got round. The X must be on my doorstep because now my house is being watched. I am being watched. Well, Mr. Valentine, I am not an excavation, and I have no intention of letting brotherly love dig me into any sort of premature grave. Sincerely, Franklin J. Scott"

Of course it never did you any good, but it was better than "twenty-three skidoo, or "Go jump in the lake." If you listen carefully, you may get some tips on how to use the expression with more effective results. It all started with a phone call at George Valentine's office by a little fellow who was just full of questions. Oh, let's see if George has any of the answers."

In fact, if Fofo should happen to die, I am the person who killed him. What I mean is, Mr. Valentine, I've already practically confessed to his murder.

(:cellnr style='color: green ' :)Host Introduction:
(:cell style='color: green ' :)"You've all heard the expression, 'beware of Greek bearing gifts.' In case it slipped your mind, a fellow by the name of Virgil said that some two thousand years ago. But as far as George Valentine is concerned, he could just as well have said it today. Wanna know why? Well suppose you listen to our Let George Do It adventure entitled 'Deal Me Out and I'll Deal You In.'"
(:cellnr style='color: green ' :)Opening Line Introduction:
(:cell style='color: green ' :)"Personal notice: Danger is my stock in trade. If the job's too tough for you to handle, you got a job for me, George Valentine. Write full details."
(:cellnr style='color: green ' :)First Line:
(:cell style='color: green ' :)"(With a thick accent) Dear Mr. Valentines, now is your chance to be rich. I am a stranger in town and you should take me. Percentage cost plus straight commission of the goods, I will pay whatever you like, whatever. And why? Because five private detectives I am hiring with what? No satisfactions. Mr. Valentines, a young friend of mine is having a most desperate situation and if you can give satisfactions, than I deal you in. The riches are yours. Knowing you like that sort of thing, I remain as ever yours, Ambrose Acropolis."

(:cellnr style='color: green ' :)Description:
(:cell style='color: green ' :)George takes Brooksie to Sandy Spit for a vacation because he once had delicious fish stew there. But buried treasure and murder threaten his vacation, and his chances of getting more fish stew.

(:cellnr style='color: green ' :)Host Introduction:
(:cell style='color: green ' :)"Well, y'all set for another visit with Valentine? Ready or not, here he comes, and is he loaded... Now, uh, don't get me wrong. I don't mean in the true sense of the vernacular, nor is he toting a Tommy Gun. He's just up to his chin in bliss. You known why? He's going on a vacation. Now whether you think this is the proper time of year to take a vacation, or whether you think he deserves one, is of no consequence to George. He just got tired of letting George do it, packed Brooksie and his bags into the car, and took off for his favorite seaside spot. Now, at first glance, this may look a little on the dull side, but stick around. It's only the beginning."

[George] Yeah, I know, and they're both the same color. Now, don't worry. I can tell them apart. I tell you Brooksie, the Italians call it ciapino, and the French call it bouillabaisse, but this stuff here tastes so much better than what they... [Brooksie] I know, and Miss Gallagher just calls it fish stew. You've only told me about it ten times. [George] Well, now look. Everybody else in the world gets a vacation. Why can't I?

It's called "The Blue Plate Special", and it was created especially for those of you who are trying to lose a few pounds. You see, it doesn't contain a single protein, or calorie, or even a vitamin for that matter. Just a couple of fat heads, which you should be able to digest very easily. Now, if you'll take your elbows off the table, I'll tell the chef to commence serving."

[Josh] How much, I ask you! [Sam] Uh, uh, uh, of course, with you boys it's a little different, but I want you to understand that nothing would make me prouder than to do business with the Higby family... [Josh] Never mind that old maid business of yours! [Sam] ...but I mean, uh, uh, uh... Well, what did I say? $2.50? Was that what I said? Oh sure, Josh. I'd be glad to pay you, uh, uh, $3.00? [Josh] $3.00 you'd pay me for that plate! [Sam] No, Josh, no! [Josh] Well, for $3.00, I'd break it over your head! Do you hear me?!... [Sam] "Dear Mr. Valentine, You've got to come to Higby Corners before something terrible happens! Before I'm ruined! Mr. Valentine, I want you to... to steal a plate! Yours truly, Sam Ferris."

Well I come from a lumbering family. I love trees. Love them and, now I fear them with all my heart, and I'm not the only one. Everybody in this little town of High Timber is afraid because in the last few weeks no less than four forest fires have been deliberately set by someone in our midst. So far we've been able to put them out but there's always the next time and the pines all around us, the deadly pines can become a flaming coffin. I need help Mr. Valentine and right away. Sincerely, Dave Herron."

!!From July 17, 1950 through June 9, 1952:

(:comment COLORS: Using the "style='color: XXXXX'" instruction instead of the %xxxxx% color instruction, so that the numbers as part of the numbered lists displayed inside a table (normally used in the "Notes:" field) display in the desired color :)

(:comment COMMENTS: Using the "comment" directive directly underneath the episode anchors as tooltips. It appears that this version of pmwiki does not appear to support tooltips embedded in the anchors themselves -- it just displays whatever is directly underneath the anchor itself. To avoid the ugly "table cellpadding..." statement from appearing as a tooltip, use a comment instead. :)
