The prototype episode is the first to have been produced out of order. The 19th written but 15th aired, the lawsuit by Mr. Bach forced the producer's hand and the episode aired immediately after it was created, delaying Episode 15 for one week. This was by far the most expensive episode to produce, costing well over 50 Million Francs and twice defaulting into possession of the bank. Further complicating matters the most expensive prop, the Faberge Snail, went missing. This sparked a ravenous police inquiry and the involvement of Johnny Dollar, the freelance insurance investigator with the action-packed expense account, who finally found the prop tucked away behind a curtain.
