Trivia

Near the end Mildred tells Steele (Pierce Brosnan) that working with him is like being in a James Bond movie. This allusion to Bond is constantly reinforced by the soundtrack, which was deliberately scored to sound like the soundtrack of a Bond film. Brosnan would be offered the role of James Bond three years later, only to have to decline it, due to his contractual obligations to this series, but he would get a second chance to play Bond five years after that.

Goofs

Towards the end, the boat the 'bad guys' are using to get away in is shown 'underway'. When Steele and Holt go to board the boat it is not moving. See more »

Quotes

Remington Steele: You know Laura, in crimes of this magnitude it's usually standard to offer a finders fee. Usually at 10% of the value and 10% of 250,000,000 dollars is...
Laura Holt: 25,000,000.
Remington Steele: Do you realize we could be given 25,000,000 dollars as a reward for being honest?
Laura Holt: That really astounds you. Doesn't it?
Remington Steele: It heartens me Laura. It absolutely heartens me.

Steele Away with Me: Part 2
3 May 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

There are strains of a variation of the James Bond theme heard throughout this episode, Mildred even mentions all the action is just like a James Bond movie.

The producers knew they had a future Bond in their hands but imagine watching this knowing Brosnan did play Bond!

It helps that filming took place in Acapulco. Laura and Steele are in Acapulco after a dying man leaves a tuna stuffed with diamonds, wrapped in an Acapulco newspaper. In a bullring, a man following Laura claims to be a cop investigating a diamond smuggling ring.

Captain Rios is on Steele's tail but he is more interested in getting a finder's fees if he can retrieve the lost diamonds. Laura needs to get close to a Chicago crook and Mildred Krebs is determined to get Steele to pay his taxes but finds the adventure more exciting. It is just a shame that David Warner was rather wasted in this episode.
