Favorite Quotes:

* Charlie: Mathematics can be much more lucrative than fathers think.

* Charlie: Big things disguised as little things.

* Charlie: A mathematical determination of who will or won’t be a winner.

* Larry: Why? To what end? This work is just a self-fulfilling prophecy.

* Charlie: I’ve always believed that it was my duty to develop mathematical tools and someone else’s to use them wisely.

* Larry: Real science is discovery not invention, the truths are there whether we find them or not.

Synopsis: Two security guards investigate an alarm. They find a dead body. Don and his team arrive and are informed that the murder victim is part of a think tank and does classified work. The deceased man’s hard drive was wiped clean and they did not steal the information on it. Charlie will try to reverse engineer the program to restore the files. David interviews the dead man’s wife. Don finds out what the victim was working on and tells Charlie. Charlie discovered a sabermetrics program that he was also developing. At Dr. Hoke’s office, his assistant is working on the computer. He’s not aware that the victim was a baseball fan. Larry comes upon Charlie and Larry hates sabermetrics. Back at Don’s office he and David bring each other up to speed. There’s an insurance policy. Don and David pay a visit to Mrs. Hoke’s boyfriend. It leads nowhere. Charlie analyzes the computer and is interrupted by Scott, the assistant. Charlie and Larry go to Dr. Hoke’s funeral but they are the only ones in attendance. At the house, Charlie works on the case. He learns that his parents nearly divorced when he went to Princeton. The conversation leads Charlie to a discovery. He was trying to apply sabermetrics to real people. Don and Charlie talk with Scott again. From what they learn, the data he was using to determine people’s success was cut off. Don and David go back to the crime scene to take a second look. David finds a wire sticking out of the alarm box. When he pulls the face off he finds evidence of surveillance equipment. Don and Terry talk to the deceased boss about the surveillance and the program he was working on. He disagreed with the statistical analysis and how it was being done. But ultimately, he owns the software. The FBI says it was not their surveillance either. The tech says it was piggybacked, there is no prints. However, the unit was bought by the boyfriend. Don heads back to the boyfriend again. The listening device was Mrs. Hoke’s lawyer’s idea. They interview the wife again. The lawyer turns over the surveillance to prove her client’s innocence. Charlie analyzes the keystrokes and the person who erased the files also had access to the computer at work. Don arrests his assistant for the murder. Before he’s taken away, Charlie asks him why he killed him. His formula would have prevented his school from getting a computer lab. He wanted to stop him from the Nazi’s all over again. Larry and Charlie chat in the garage and get philosophical.

Synopsis: The brothers look at all the timbers brought up from the third hole. It appears that it’s just been clay since those timbers were brought up. They are at around 120 feet depth at this point. This grab brings up a circular piece of wood. A wedge of wood is also brought up. A rainstorm hits and they can continue to work in the rain. Lightning starts and the crew is forced to shut down operations because of all the metal. The brothers take all their finds over to Dan’s house to get his opinion on them. Marty shows him the round log and asks if it could be one of the original logs found on the ten foot platforms. Dan holds his opinion until the carbon dating comes back. Rick, Charles and Jack take a couple of stonemasons to see Nolan’s Cross. The rock they show them is the one that is carved like a face. They determine it is sandstone. A second rock is shown to the masons. It’s the granite stone at the bottom of the cross. The two are speechless and believe it’s been altered by humans. The bottom is extremely smooth and it would have to have been drug a long distance to achieve that. The team meets later that night in the war room to discuss the carbon testing results. Results are from the 1600’s, including the round oak log. This round log is not the kind of material that any previous treasure hunter has used. It has to be from the original money pit. The storm has cleared enough that the money pit dig and bore hole T1 has resumed. Wood is not coming up anymore, just clay. The can is at 148 feet and so is the excavation. They are anticipating wood on this hammer grab, but it’s only clay. The next grab is only clay as well. The brothers are very confused that they are only getting clay. They’ve hit a wall, so to speak. The excavator teeth have hit something that may be metal and has brought them to a halt. They try to break though and the hammer grab brings up slate. It may be the bedrock. It is bedrock and this hole is terminated. Marty and Rick are both disappointed. Marty wants to quit and Charles gives him a pep talk. Back at the war room they regroup and call Craig and update him. Marty wants to give up on the money pit, but Rick won’t let him cry “Uncle!” Craig is on board for a fourth bore hole. Marty does not want Rick to have regrets, so they decide on a fourth hole. Rick gets to pick the fourth hole location. Rick already knows where he wants to dig. He wants to chase the debris field of a tunnel implosion during a dig in the late 1800’s. Marty likes his logic as well. Rick pays him a tribute. The next day Rick tells Andrew about the fourth hole and gives him the location of the hole. They mark it and label it GAL1. Andrew gets the equipment moved to dig the new hole. The excavating casing is swung into place.
