YEAH. POSTAL LORE HAS IT THAT HE WOULD SPENDHIS LUNCH HOURS HIDING SOMEWHEREIN THIS BUILDING, SCRATCHING OFF LOTTERY TICKETSAND ENTERING MAGAZINE CONTESTS.

AND THEN ONE DAY,HE JUST DIDN'T SHOW UP.

SCRATCHING OFF "YOU MAY ALREADYAND ENTERING MABE A WINNER...".

[OLIVER CHUCKLES]

UH, NORMAN!

EXTRACTION KIT, PLEASE.

CAREFUL. IT'S WATERLOGGED,IT MAY DISINTEGRATE.

NORMAN, HANDWRITING?

IT'S DATED 18 YEARS AGO AND WRITTEN WITHA FOUNTAIN PEN, BUT THE HANDWRITINGIS ADOLESCENT FEMALE, 10, MAYBE 11 YEARS OLD.

BUT THEA CHILD WHO VALUESIS ADOLETHE WRITTEN WORD.

WELL, WHY DON'T I START?

BUT THEA CHILD WHO VALUESIS ADOLETHE"DEAR SIR,ORD.

I AM SENDING YOU THIS VASE BECAUSE WE REALLY NEEDTO SELL IT.

WHEN I CALLED YOU LAST YEAR, YOU SAID YOU THOUGHTMAYBE IT WAS WORTH SOME MONEY, BUT YOU'D HAVE TO SEE IT FIRST, SO HERE IT IS.

YOU ALSO SAID YOU WOULD HAVEBUT YTO KNOW HOW OLD IT ISIRST, AND WHERE WE GOT ITAND THE WHOLE STORY OF IT.

SO HERE IT GOES.

WE LIVE ON A FARM.

IT IS VERY HARD WORK AND HARDLY ANYBODYHAS A REAL FARM ANYMORE.

BUT MY MOM SAYS THAT'S THE WAYWE'VE ALWAYS DONE IT AND THAT'S WHY OUR MILKIS THE BEST, AND THAT NOTHING BEATS AND THHAPPY COWSUR MILKAND HARD WORK AND HOPE.

BUT THAT'S WHERETHE VASE COMES IN, AND THHAPPY COWSUR MILKBECAUSE TIMES ARE BAD AGAIN AND WE ARE ALMOSTOUT OF HOPE NOW.

WE ARE A FAMILY OF FARMERS.

OUR FAMILY HAS BEEN RAISING COWS AND SELLING MILKAND MAKING CHEESE FOR MORE THAN A HUNDRED YEARS.

THE WOMEN IN OUR FAMILYALWAYS HAVE GIRLS, AND THEY ALL GROW UPTO BE FARMERS, EXCEPT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE, A GIRL GETS BORNWHO JUST WANTS ADVENTURE.

THAT WASGREAT-GRANDMOTHER BETTY.

WHEN WORLD WAR II STARTED, GREAT-GRANDMA BETTYLEFT THE FARM AND JOINEDTHE WOMEN'S ARMY CORPS.

EVERYBODY UNDERSTOOD WHY BETTY RAN OFFTO JOIN THE WAR, BUT ALL THE WOMEN IN OUR FAMILYARE FARM FOLK, AND MAYBE THEY WANDER SOMETIMES, BUT SOONER OR LATER,THEY ALL COME HOME.

WHEN BETTY WENT TO WAR, SHE GOT MARRIEDTO AN ARMY CAPTAIN.

AND THE MAN WHO MARRIED THEM GAVE THEM THIS VASEAS A WEDDING PRESENT.

SHE DIDN'T BRINGHER HUSBAND HOME.

GAVE THEM THIS VASEAS JUST THE VASE.ENT.

AND A BABY.

THAT BABYWAS OUR GRANDMA ISABEL.

FIVE GENERATIONSHAVE LIVED ON THIS FARM, THAT BABYWAS WITH THIS VASE,BEL.

AND WE ALL BELIEVED WHATGREAT-GRANDMA BETTY HAD SAID, THAT THE VASE WAS PROBABLY WORTHWAS A LOT OF MONEY.BEL.

SHE CALLED ITOUR "JUST-IN-CASE-VASE."

WE COULD ONLY SELL IT IF WE REALLY, REALLYDIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE--

WE BUT IF WE WEREL IT THE STRONG AMERICAN WOMENDWE WERE RAISED TO BE, WE WOULD ALWAYSTHINK OF SOMETHING ELSE BEFORE IT CAME TO THAT.

AND WE ALWAYS DID.

ONE YEAR, WE PRACTICALLY LOSTA WHOLE HERD OF JERSEYS TO A COW EPIDEMIC.

SOMETIMES, A BAD YEAR MEANT WE JUST ATEEGGS AND PEANUT BUTTER SOAND CANS OF SOUP,AR SO THE COWS COULD HAVE HAY, BUT THEY NEVER SOLD THE VASE.

[SINGING]

SOMETIMES, THERE WERETORNADOS, AND DROUGHTS, AND BLIZZARDS, AND FLOODS.

SOMETSOMETIMES,E WEREWE HAD TO TRADE STUFF AWAY--

BUT WE NEVER SOLD THE VASE.

BUT SIX MONTHS AGO, DADDY DIED IN A TRACTOR ACCIDENTIN THE WEST PASTURE, AND THAT'S WHYWE ARE IN TROUBLE NOW.

OUR MOM AND DADREALLY, REALLY...

LOVED EACH OTHER, AND...

OUR MOM AND DADREALLY, REALLY LOVED EACH OTHER, AND SHE'S STILL SO SAD,SHE CAN'T GET OUT OF BED, AND PEGGY AND I ARE TRYINGTO TAKE CARE OF BUNNY AND SHE'S STILL SO SAD,SHE CAAND THE COWSOF BED, AND GO TO SCHOOL AND...

TRADE MILKTO PAY THE BILLS.

THEN LAST WEEK, A LADY CAMEFROM THE SOCIAL SERVICES AND ASKED WHERE OUR MOTHER WAS.

A LADY CAMEWE TOLD HER SHE WAS SLEEPING AND SHE SAIDSHE'D BE BACK NEXT WEEK.

SO IF WE CAN JUST SELL THE VASE, WE CAN PAY THE BILLS, AND MAMA WILL FEEL BETTER BEFORE SOMEBODY COMESTO TAKE US AWAY."

WELL, THAT'S ALL THERE IS.

I HOPE THAT THEY'RE--

WELL,THEY'RE STILL...E IS.

HOW OLD WOULD SHE BE NOW?

OH, ABOUT 28?

MS. MCINERNEY,ULD SHE BE NOW?

WOULD YOU DOSOME RESEARCH ABOUT 28?

ON 100-YEAR-OLDFAMILY FARMS IN THE AREA?

NORMAN, LET'SCLEAN UP THAT MESS ON 100-YEAND FIGURE OUTFAMIWHAT TO DO WITH THE ROOM.

AND RITA, WILL YOUTAKE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE VASE, AND MAKE A FEW COPIES, AND THEN LOCK THE VASE AWAYTAKE PHOIN THE SAFE?THE VASE, WHEREVER THE SAFE IS NOW.

GOT IT.

IF THE VASE TRULY ISFROM EUROPE, THEN I DOUBT WE'LL BE ABLETO TRACE IT BACK TO SOME DAIRY FARM IN--

I'M ASSUMING COLORADO...

IF IT WAS MISADDRESSEDAND RETURNED TO SENDER, THEN MARY LOU WOULDI'M ASSNEVER HAVE HEARD BACK IF IT WAS MISADDRESSEDAND RETFROM "DEAR SIR."

SO WHOEVER"DEAR SIR" IS, I'M SURE SHE CALLED HIMOR WROTE HIM AGAIN TO TRY TO TRACK IT DOWN?

I'M SURE SHE CALLED HIMAN ART DEALER, PERHAPS?IN THERE CAN'T BETHAT MANY IN DENVER.

OH, WELL, THERE'S 87 IN DENVER PROPER.

IN METRO-DENVER...

POINT TAKEN, RITA.

THEN LET'S NARROW THAT DOWN TO EUROPEANPORCELAIN SPECIALISTS.

YOU GUYS REMEMBERMY COUSIN SERGE?

[SHANE]: SERGE?

THE ONE WHO ENTEREDA MONASTERY IN MINNESOTA?

THE LITTLE BROTHERSOF PERPETUAL FROST. YEAH.

HE'S RELEVANTTO THIS CONVERSATION BECAUSE...

BECAUSE HE HASA TWIN, IGOR!

HE'SAND HE'S THETO THIS CONVEASSOCIATE DIRECTOR OF DECORATIVE ARTS AT THE COLORADO MUSEUMOF FINE ARTS!

HE ALWAYS LIKED BOWLS AND POTS.

AND THEY'VE GOTLOTS OF POTS THERE.

OH, LOOK.S LIKED BOWLS AND POTS.

THEY USED IT FOR PACKING.

"PERSEPHONE,3/4 BUCKET.

DIDN'T DRINK.

"PERSEPHONE,SEEMS DEHYDRATED.

VENUS, WOULDN'T PASTURE.

PENELOPE,MINERVA, ELECTRA..."

SEEMS LIKE SOME SORT OF COW DIARY, I THINK.

OH.

IT SAYS"SEE ATTACHED VET PRESCRIPTION."

WELL, MAYBE THE NAME OF THE VETCAN HELP US LOCATE THE FARM.

THE SECOND PAGE IS MISSING.IT MUST HAVE FALLEN APART.

THOUGH IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS STUCK TOGETHERLONG ENOUGH FOR SOME IMPRESSIONSTO GET TRANSFERRED.E I MIGHT BE ABLETO PULL SOMETHING OFF OF THAT IF I HAD A BIGGER LAB AND A LASERAND A SPECTRAL-IMAGING SYSTEM.

BUT THE BUDGET ONLY APPROVEDA PAPER SHREDDER THIS YEAR.

WELL, THERE MUST BEAND SOME GOVERNMENT AGENCYTEM.

TO WHOM WE CAN TURN.

WHAT ABOUT DALE AT THE STATE DIVISIONOF INVESTIGATIONS?

AH.

AT WELL, THERE'S--IONTHERE'S A THOUGHT.

SHE'S STILLA SPECIAL AGENT THERE, RIGHT?

A VERY SPECIAL AGENT.

[OLIVER]: I'M GOINGTO GIVE HER A CALL RIGHT NOW.

DO YOU REALLY THINKIT'S A GOOD IDEA FOR OLIVER TO BE...

REACHING OUT TO DALE?

[SHANE]: OH, ABSOLUTELY.

AND YOU GO WITH HIM.

AH.

[NORMAN]:AND SHE'S REALLY SMART.

SHE HAS A PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY, AND SHE WASMISS SPECIAL DELIVERY, AND WE LIKE THE SAME THINGS, AND THE SAME MUSIC, AND THE SAME BOOKSAND EVERYTHING.

SO WHEN'S THE WEDDING?

WELL, IT'S STILL PRETTY NEW.

I HAVEN'T EVEN MET HER FAMILY.

JUST WAIT TILL THEY MEET OURS.

WELL, THE STYLE CERTAINLY SEEMS TO BE18TH-CENTURY ROCOCO.

SO IT'S EITHER QUITE VALUABLE...

CERTAINLY SEEMS TO BEOR AN EXCELLENT REPRODUCTION.

WE'RE NOTACTUALLY INTERESTED IN THE VALUE.

WE'RE NOTI AM, KINDA.INTERESTED WE'RE LOOKING FOR AN ART DEALERIN THE DENVER AREA THAT MIGHT HAVE SPECIALIZEDIN 18TH-CENTURY PORCELAINOR AND BEEN INTERESTED IN BUYING OR SELLINGSOMETHING LIKE THIS

18 YEARS AGO.

WELL, THERE AREN'TA LOT OF THOSE AROUND HERE, BUT I CAN TRY TO PUT A LISTTOGETHER FOR YOU.

THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

TO PUT A LISTTOGETHETHANK YOU SO MUCH.

JUST A QUICK QUESTION.

IF WE WERE INTERESTEDIN THE VALUE OF THE VASE, WHAT WOULD BE A BALLPARK FIGURE?

WELL, IF IT'S GENUINE, AND IT HASA VERIFIABLE PROVENANCE, IT COULD BE WORTH A GREAT DEAL.

AND IT HASA VE500 OR 600 MAYBE?CE, OH, NO.NOT THAT MUCH.

250...

OH, NO.$300,000.NOT THAT MUCH.

[GASPS FOR AIR]

[SI'M AFRAID MUST BEKIM KELLSER.YEYOUR GRANDDAUGHTER THINKS WE'RE HERE ABOUT THE SALEOF YOUR FARM, THIBUT WE'RE NOT.

OH.

ACTUALLY,THAT'S A BREATH OF FRESH AIR.

WHAT BRINGS YOU HERE, THEN?

WE ARE FROMTHE DEAD LETTER OFFICE OF THE U.S. POSTAL SERVICE.

WE FOUND SOMETHING YOUR CHILDRENMAY HAVE MAILED TO A DENVER ART DEALER18 YEARS AGO.

YOUR CHILDRENTHE VASE?HAVE MAILED YES.

IT IS SAFE ANDIN GOOD CONDITION.

WE JUST HAVEA FEW DETAILS THAT WE NEEDTO CLEAR UP FIRST.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD,HAVEMR. O'TOOLE?EW DETAILS I DO.

GOOD, BECAUSE YOU JUST MIGHT BETHE ANSWER TO OUR PRAYERS.

[KIM]: APPARENTLY, THEY'D SENTTHE VASE TO AN ART DEALER MARY LOU HAD FOUNDIN THE PHONE BOOK.

IT TOOK A LOT OF COURAGE FOR THEM TO ADMITWHAT THEY'D DONE.

BUT MARY LOU TOOK THE BLAME, AND ALL SHE SAIDIN HER DEFENSE WAS...

WAS THAT SHE WAS TRYINGBUT MTO SAVE THE FAMILY.AME, THAT'S THE DAY I GOT OUT OF BED, I GOT MY ACT TOGETHER, AND I NEVER LOOKED BACK, I NEVER CAREDIF I EVER SAW THAT VASE AGAIN.

UNTIL NOW.

'CAUSE WEHAVE TO MOVE.

[KIM]: I NEVER THOUGHTI'D HEAR MYSELF SAY THIS, BUT IF THERE WAS EVER A TIMEI WAS TEMPTED TO SELL THAT VASE, [KIM]: I NEVER THOUGHTI'IT WOULD'VE BEEN NOW.S, BUT I DIDN'T HAVE IT TO SELL.

AND THEN YOU FOLKSCOME UP THE ROAD.

SO IF IT REALLY ISWORTH SOME MONEY, THERE WOULDN'T BEA BETTER TIME TO FIND THAT OUT.

WELL, IT WILL NEEDTO BE APPRAISED, OF COURSE, AND WE DO HAVE SOME INDICATION THAT IT MAY BE WORTHQUITE A GREAT DEAL...

...IF IT IS GENUINE.

AND, OF COURSE,WE'LL HAVE TO COME UP WITH SOME SORT OF WAYTO AUTHENTICATE OWNERSHIP.

THERE AREN'T ANY RECEIPTS.

IT WAS A WEDDING GIFTTO MY GRANDMOTHER.

THERE AREN'WE HAVE A PICTURE.

THAT'S RIGHT!

ABBY, WOULD YOU GO FINDTHAT OLD SCRAPBOOK, PLEASE?

MM-HMM.

A PHOTO WOULD BE GREAT, AND THEN WE WOULD JUSTHAVE SOME FORMS TO BE SIGNED BY ALL THREE SENDERS.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN, ALL THREE?

WELL, THE BOX WAS MARKED"RETURN TO SENDER,"

AND IN THE CASE OF SOMETHINGSO POTENTIALLY VALUABLE, WE WOULD NEEDTHE SIGNATURES OF ALL THREE NAMESON THE RETURN ADDRESS.

PEGGY, MARY LOU, AND BUNNY.

WE HAVEN'T SEEN MARY LOUFOR OVER TWO YEARS.

[OLIVER]: MARY LOUHAS QUITE A WAY WITH WORDS.

SHE WROTE A BEAUTIFUL LETTER.

YEAH, SHE DID.

IF IT'S NOT SWEET ENOUGH,YOU CAN PUT IN MORE SUGAR.

-IT'S JUST RIGHT THERE.-THANK YOU.

IF YOU PUT INTOO MUCH AT FIRST, YOU CAN'T FIX IT, BUT YOU CAN ALWAYS PUT IN MORE.

THAT'S JUST THE WAYI MAKE IT, TOO.

PEGGY!

PEGGY!

GUESS WHAT!

THE MAIL PEOPLEFOUND OUR VASE!

[PEGGY]: SO YOU'RE SAYING THERE'S ACTUALLYSOMEONE IN DENVER WITH AN OFFER TO BUY IT?

THER[OLIVER]:LLYI BELIEVE THE EXACT QUOTE WAS

"IN A NEW YORK MINUTE."

WELL, THEN IT MUST BEWORTH SOMETHING.

[OLIVER]: IF IT'S AUTHENTICAND NOT A REPRODUCTION.

AN AUTHENTIC WHAT?

[SHANE]:WE'RE NOT ACTUALLY SURE, BUT OUR FRIEND AT THE MUSEUM SAID IT COULD DATEFROM THE 1700S.

WOW.

AND THEN THERE'S THE MATTEROF OWNERSHIP.

WELL, IT'S OURS.

THAT PICTURE WILL PROVE IT.

[OLIVER]: NEVERTHELESS,THE RETURN ADDRESS INDICATES THAT THE VASE WAS MAILEDBY THREE INDIVIDUALS, SO WE REQUIRE A SIGNATUREFROM ALL THREE IN ORDER TO RELEASE IT.

[BUNNY]:WELL, I'LL SIGN SOMETHING.

BUNNY, THEY NEEDYOU AND ME AND MARY LOU.

LEAVE IT TO HERTO COMPLICATE THINGS FOR US, EVEN WHEN SHE'S NOT HERE.

PEGGY...

IS THERE A WAY THATWE COULD CONTACT MARY LOU?

WELL, SHE'S REALLY BUSY.

IS TH[PEGGY]: WE SEND EMAILSWE COTHAT NEVER GO THROUGH.

WE SEND LETTERS TO A P.O. BOX THAT SHE'S NEVER IN THE COUNTRYTO CHECK.

SHE SENDS US POSTCARDS,FRUIT BASKETS.

NO, SHE HASN'T QUITE THOUGHTTO SEND US AN ACTUAL ADDRESS.

AND EVEN IF SHE DIDGET A LETTER THAT WE SENT HER, NO,AND EVEN IF SHE STOPPEDHTTO S"FOLLOWING HER HEART"ESS.

LONG ENOUGH TO READ IT, AND EVENIF SHE DID SIGN YOUR PAPERS, AND EVEN IFSHE MANAGED TO SEND IT BACK, I DOUBT ANY OF THAT WOULD HAPPENIN TIME FOR US TO SELL THE VASE AND GET THE MONEY SO THAT WE CAN PAY OUR TAXESAND OUR BILLS AND SAVE OUR FARMHOUSE AND LET OUR MOTHER DIE IN PEACE!

[ABBY]: I FOUND IT!

[NORMAN]: COULD YOUSHOW IT TO US?

MAYBE INSIDE,WHILE THE GROWN-UPS ARE TALKING.

WOW. THAT LOOKS OLD.

[BUNNY]:OKAY. BYE.

[KIM]: OKAY. THANKS, BUNNY.

[KIM]: PEGGY, OUR PROBLEMSARE NOT THEIR PROBLEMS.

THEY'RE JUST TRYING TO HELP.

AND FOR THE RECORD,YOU ALL FOLLOWED YOUR HEART.

YOU FOLLOWED YOUR HEART, AND WHEN YOUR HEART GOT BROKEN, YOU BROUGHT ALL THE PIECESYOU FOLBACK HERE, HEART, AND THIS PLACEPUT YOU BACK TOGETHER AGAIN.

YOU BUNNY HAS FOLLOWEDECESHER SWEET, LITTLE HEART, EVEN IF IT ONLY GOESAS FAR AS THE BACK FENCE.

BUT SHE LOVES THE ANIMALSAND THE PEACE AND IT MAKES HER HAPPY.

AND YOU'D DO WELL, MISSY, TO FIND A WAY TO MAKE THAT KIND OF PEACEAND WITH YOUR SISTER.SSY,

I APOLOGIZE.

IT'S BEEN A TOUGH...

WE UNDERSTAND.

IOKAY.EEN A TOUGH...

WE UNDERPEGGY ACTS ANGRY, BUT, REALLY, SHE JUST MISSESHER LITTLE SISTER.

THEY WERE SO CLOSEWEUNTIL THAT VASE WENT MISSING, AND THINGS CHANGED.

MAYBE NOW...

DO YOU DRIVE A STICKSHIFT,MR. O'TOOLE?

OH...

WELL, I'M...

I'M A BIT RUSTY.

WELI CAN....

-YEAH?-MM-HMM.

-YEAH?-MM-HMM.

[KIM]:IT DOESN'T KILL YOU RIGHT AWAY.

BUT IT KILLS YOU.

AND THERE'S NO CURE.

EVEN IF WE COULD FINDTHE RIGHT DOCTOR, AND THE RIGHT TREATMENTTO SLOW IT DOWN, EVEN IF WE COULD FINDSOONER OR LATER,, THE BONE MARROW JUST STOPSMAKING RED BLOOD CELLS.

AND SOME FANCY, EXPENSIVE VASEISN'T GOING TO CHANGE THAT.

BUT, IF IT'S TRUE, IF WE COULD SELL IT, AND POSTPONE THE AUCTION, IT SURE WOULD BE NICE TO BE LOOKING AT ALL THIS WHEN MY TIME COMES.

IT IS A TRULY BEAUTIFUL PLACE.

ABBY SAYS THAT SOOKIE IS STUBBORN, POLLY LIKES TO STAYIN THE PARLOR,ABBY SAYS AND, WELL,ARABELLE LIKES TO WANDER.

THAT'S JUST WHO THEY ARE.

THEY'RE ALL DIFFERENT.

MARY LOU ALWAYS--

ALWAYS HAD CRAZY IDEASGROWING UP.

AND ALWAYS MANAGEDTO MAKE THEM WORK.

THAT'S WHY IT WAS SO HARD ON HER WHEN HER BIGGEST DREAMDISAPPEARED IN THE U.S. MAIL.

WE ARE SO SORRY ABOUT THAT.

IT MADE US STRONGER.

AND IT MADE MARY LOUDETERMINED TO PROVE HERSELF.

SHE WENT TO COLLEGE, SHE WORKED FOR A NEWSPAPERDETEAND A RADIO STATION,ELF.

AND NOW SHE RUNSSHAROUND THE WORLD,, SHE WORKED FOR A NEWSPAPERDEFOLLOWING WAR AFTER WAR,F.

AND TELLS STORIES ABOUT FOLKSWHO'RE FIGHTING TO SURVIVE IN A LOT WORSE CIRCUMSTANCESTHAN OURS.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIMEYOU SAW HER?

THREE CHRISTMASES AGO.

SHE AND PEGGY GOT INTO AN ARGUMENT ABOUT SOMETHING SILLY, AS USUAL, AND IT ENDED UP WHERE THINGS ALWAYS ENDS UP.

I CAME BACK.

WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?I'M NOT A FARMER, OKAY?

OH, YES. WELL,THAT IS THE TRUTH!

WHA-IF YOU HAD BEEN...ME?I'M-YOU'RE JEALOUS.KAY?

OH, GREAT,WE'RE BACK TO THE VASE!

[PEGGY]: YES!

[MARY LOU]:WI'M SORRY, I'M SORRY,!

AND I'M SORRY!

I WAS A 10-YEAR-OLD KID.

I CAN'T KEEP COMING BACK HERE JUST TO BE PUT ON TRIALOVER AND OVER AGAIN.

I'M OUT OF HERE.

[KIM]:AND NOW THERE'S ALWAYS A REASON WHY SHE CAN'T MAKE IT BACK HERE.

SHE'S ALWAYS...

"EMBEDDED" WITH SOME TROOPS IN SOME COMBAT ZONE SOMEWHERE.

DOES SHE EVEN KNOWYOU'VE BEEN SICK?

I... I DON'T KNOW.

I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE SHE IS.

IT'S SO...

IT'S SO PEACEFUL HERE.

IT'YEAH...

THIS IS MY FAVORITE TIME OF DAY.

WHEN THE COWSCOME HOME FOR THE NIGHT.

THE SUN STARTS TO SET, THE EVENING COMES, AND SOMEHOW, THEY JUST KNOWIT'S TIME TO COME HOME.

SOMEDAY, SO WILL I.

I JUST HOPE WE'RE ALL TOGETHERWHEN I DO.

[KIM]: I LOVE THAT ONE.

OH, LOOK AT THAT.

THERE'S MY GRANDMOTHERBEFORE SHE ENLISTED.

[PEGGY]:I'M STILL NOT CLEAR EXACTLY HOW YOU GUYS AREALL INVOLVED IN THIS.

[KIM]: THIS IS HERWHEN SHE WAS A BABY.

[RITA]: OH, WOW.SHE'S VERY PRETTY.

SHE LOOKS A LOT LIKE MARY LOU.

OH.

SO, CAN YOU MAKEAN EXCEPTION?

I MEAN, WE CAN PROVETHAT THE VASE IS OURS, AND YOU HAVE ME AND BUNNY, AND THAT'S TWO PROVEOUT OF THREE SIGNATURES.

YES. HOWEVER, THE ACCOMPANYING LETTERWAS WRITTEN BY MARY LOU.

I UNDERSTANDTHE URGENCY.

THIS IS OBVIOUSLY...

AN UNUSUALSET OF CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT--

OKAY.

AN UNUSUALSET OF CII GET IT.ES, BUT--

BUT...

CAN YOU HELP USTRACK DOWN MARY LOU?

WELL, FROM WHAT I HEAR, MARY LOU COULD BE ANYWHEREIN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW.

BUT YOU FOUND US.

YOU MUST BE GOOD.

I'VE GOT A CARD.

SHE'S AN ASSOCIATE NEWS PRODUCERAT A NEWS AGENCY IN NEW YORK.

SHE'S NEVER ACTUALLY THERE,BUT IT'S A START.

COULD YOU JUST TRY?

PLEASE?

EVEN IF IT ENDS UP BEINGTOO LATE FOR THE AUCTION, THE TRUTH IS...

IT MIGHT JUST BE ENOUGHTO BRING MARY LOU HOME...

IN TIME FOR MOM.

[KIM]: OH, HERE IT IS.

[RITA]: OLIVER, LOOK!

THIS IS BETTYON HER WEDDING DAY.

THERE SHE IS, THERE'S HER HUSBAND,OHOLDING THE VASE,.

AND THEIR COMMANDING OFFICERWHO MARRIED THEM.

THE ONE WHO GAVETHEM THE VASE.

WHERE WAS THAT TAKEN?

FRANCE.

SHE WAS STATIONED IN LONDON AND ALLIED HEADQUARTERSIN PARIS.

[RITA]: WOW.

IMAGINE BEINGIN THE MIDDLE OF ALL THAT.

YEAH.

SHE WAS QUITEA CHARACTER.

TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, SHE WAS QUITEA CHARAI ALWAYS SUSPECTED SHE'D EXAGGERATEDTHE VALUE OF THE VASE JUST TO GIVE US SOME HOPE.

WOULDN'T IT BE SOMETHINGIF IT TURNS OUT SHE'S RIGHT?

YES. YES, IT WOULD.

SO, IS THAT WHAT YOU NEEDED?

YOU KNOW, WE...

WE'LL HAVE TO COMPARE THIS VASE WITH THE ONE WE HAVEAT THE OFFICE.

COULD WE TAKE THIS WITH US?

OR PERHAPS GET A COPY OF IT?

I HAVE A COPIER IN THE BACK.

PERFECT.

I HAVEHERE, SWEETHEART.BACK.

THANKS.

WE NEED TO LEAVE.

HEY!

I MILKED MY FIRST COW!

OH! WOW!

WE MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM.

[OLIVER]: IT'S CLEARLY WORKING.

WOW!

[OLIVELOOK AT THIS PLACE!RKING.

IT'S COMING ALONG, RIGHT?

WE NEED YOUR EXPERTISEWITH SOMETHING.

DO YOU MIND?

[JOE]: SURE.

GREAT SONG.

RITA SAYS THAT SHE USED TO SING THAT TO HER IMAGINARYCHILDHOOD FRIEND, HUDSON.

HUDSON THE INVISIBLE OWL.

SHE TOLD YOU ABOUT HUDSON?ON.

OH, YEAH.WE TELL EACH OTHER EVERYTHING.

SHE TOLD YOUOH!OUT HUDSON?ON.

I BROUGHT YOUSOME FRESH RAW MILK.

MILKED IT MYSELF.

I KNOW YOU LIKEHEALTHY THINGS, SO.

THANKS.

I'LL PUT ITIN THE FRIDGE.

THAT WAS SO THOUGHTFUL OF HIM,WASN'T IT, BILL?

HE MILKED IT HIMSELF!

BILL?

[JOE]: WELL, IT'S POSSIBLE.

[SHANE]: ALL WE KNOW IS THAT SHE BROUGHT IT BACKFROM FRANCE AFTER THE WAR.

[JOE]: IT LOOKS LIKETHE SAME VASE.

BUT EVEN IF IT WAS A GIFT, IF IT COMES THROUGH THIS OFFICE, YOU'RE OBLIGATED TO CONFIRMWHAT YOU'RE DELIVERING.

[NORMAN]: REGULATION 87K,PARAGRAPH B.

"THE MAIL RECOVERY AGENT MUST PURSUEALL AVENUES OF IDENTIFICATION, RESTITUTION, AND REPATRIATION."

NORMAN IS VERY GOODAT RULES AND REGULATIONS.

THIS IS SO EXCITING TO BE RIGHTIN THE MIDDLE OF THE ACTION.

NORMALLY, I WOULDN'T SHAREPOSTAL BUSINESS, BUT, FRANKLY, I NEED SOME FEEDBACKON HOW BEST TO PROCEED.

WELL, THE VASE IS WORTHA LOT OF MONEY, RIGHT?

MOST LIKELY.

AND THE PEOPLE IT BELONGS TOREALLY NEED THE MONEY?

REALLY, REALLY NEED IT.

THE QUESTION IS,DOES IT REALLY BELONG TO THEM?

WELL, WHEN I SAWTHE FRENCH FLAG IN THE PICTURE, I REMEMBERED A COURSE I TOOKIN COLLEGE ABOUT THE ART THAT WENT MISSINGTHE FDURING WORLD WAR II.CTURE, SOME OF IT WAS STOLENDURING THE GERMAN OCCUPATION FROM MUSEUMS OR PRIVATE HOMES, AND THEN IT WAS SOLD,OR TRADED, OR HIDDEN AWAY.

NOW, SOME OF ITHAS BEEN RECOVERED AND RETURNED, BUT THERE'S A LOT OF ITTHAT'S STILL OUT THERE, AND PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR IT.

FAMILY HEIRLOOMS,OLD MASTERPIECES...

AND YOU THINK THIS COULD BE ONE OF THOSESTOLEN PIECES OF ART?

WELL, IF IT'S FROM EUROPEAFTER THE WAR AND IT'S AS VALUABLEAS WE THINK IT COULD BE, THEN THERE'SA VERY, VERY GOOD CHANCE THAT IT BELONGEDTO ANOTHER FAMILY...

THAT IT WAS TAKEN FROM.

THAND WHO KNOWSDWHAT HAPPENED TO THEM.

[BILL]: LET'S GO GAS UPTHE STARCRUISER.

WE'RE BACK AT IT AGAIN TOMORROW?

YOU GOT IT.

-GOODNIGHT.-GOODNIGHT.

WE ALSO FOUND OUTTHAT IT'S QUITE RARE, AND MR. BENSHAN WE ALHAS AN ARDENT COLLECTORTHATOF 18TH-CENTURY PORCELAIN WHO MADE AN OFFERAND MTO ACQUIRE IT FROM YOU ONCE YOU WERETO TAKE POSSESSION.

ONCE WE "WERE"TO TAKE POSSESSION?

OH, YES.

WE DIDN'T HAVE MUCH TIMETO ELABORATE, BUT YES.

MRS. KELLSER, AH...

IN THE COURSEOF PROCESSING THIS RETURN, WE'VE DISCOVERED A LITTLE BITABOUT THE PROVENANCE OF THIS VASE.

WELL, IF IT MEANSTHAT IT'S WORTH A LOT OF MONEY, THAT COULD REALLY SOLVEOUR PROBLEMS, RIGHT?

WELL, UM...

THE VASE WAS CREATED FOR A MEMBEROF THE AUSTRIAN ROYAL FAMILY IN 1748, AND IT STAYEDWITH THAT FAMILY UNTIL IT WAS GIVEN, IRONICALLY,AS A WEDDING GIFT, TO A VERY PROMINENTPOLITICAL FAMILY IN FRANKFURT, GERMANY TO A VERY PROMINENTNAMED RUBEL.MILY IT REMAINEDIN THE RUBEL FAMILY'S POSSESSION FOR THE NEXT 72 YEARS, PASSED DOWNFROM FATHER TO SON UNTIL 1939,WHEN, UM...

[OLIVER CLEARSHIS THROAT]

WHEN THE, UH, FAMILY HOME

[OLIVER CLEARSAND ITS ENTIRE CONTENTSHROAT]

WERE CONFISCATED, AND ALL BUT ONE MEMBEROF THE RUBEL FAMILY...

MY LORD.

[SHANE]:YES, THAT, UM...

THAT PERSONWAS JOHANN RUBEL, A TEENAGER AT THE TIME, WHO MANAGEDTO ESCAPE TO FRANCE WITH NOTHINGBUT THE CLOTHES ON HIS BACK WHO MANAGEDAND A FAMILY PHOTOGRAPH.

WITH NOTHINGAFTER THE WAR,S ON HIS BACK HE MADE HIS WAYTO THE UNITED STATES.

HE WORKED HIS WAYTHROUGH COLLEGE, HE STARTED A FAMILY, AND HE SPENT HIS FREE TIME SEARCHINGFOR HIS LOST RELATIVES.

THE ONLY RECORDTHAT HE FOUND WAS AN INVENTORY OF EVERYTHINGTAKEN BY THE GERMANS FROM HIS CHILDHOOD HOME.

MR. RUBEL IS NOWIN HIS 90S, AND, UM...
