Storyline

Da Vinci has other things on his mind than helping Martin. He is dismayed at life in the 20th century: how his inventions have been credited to others, and how his painting, La Gioconda, has been renamed the Mona Lisa. In his mind, all those have been stolen from him. The Mona Lisa is currently on loan to a local museum, for which Det. Brennan is in charge of security.

Goofs

When Leonardo Da Vinci departs back to his own time, Martin sends him off with the French greeting, "Bon voyage!" But Leonardo is Italian, not French, and Italians do not speak French; especially not in Da VInci's era. In Italy, they say "Buon viaggio". Martin being a cultured martian who speaks several languages, knows history and has proper etiquette, so he would know the correct greeting, particularly since Martin had lived in that Italian era. So, it is in bad form for Martin to salute the painter with another country's greeting, where the French expression has not been adopted, like it has in the USA, Martin not being an American either.
