Season 1 - Episode 5 - Aired Nov 6, 1981
It is a fine morning, and Dogtanian goes to see Monsieur Treville. He arrives at the Musketeers' headquarters just as Widimer rides up to arrest Athos and Aramis for drawing their swords on the Cardinal's Guards. Treville appears and points out that if the guards drew their swords also then they are guilty too - of fighting a duel, which His Majesty's law forbids. Widimer is defeated but spots Dogtanian and orders his men to arrest him. After a comedy chase through the streets of Paris, Dogtanian escapes by leaping from a rooftop onto a carriage, which by chance is taking a Countess and her son to see Monsieur Treville in the hope that the boy, Terence, can join the Musketeers. Treville is cautioning Athos and Aramis about their duelling activities when the Countess arrives. After dealing with her, he hears a fight outside and, investigating, sees Dogtanian fighting two of Widimer's men. He demands to know the name of this courageous young man.

Treville, meanwhile, has an audience with the King, but Cardinal Richelieu is there too. He wants his Guards to take over from the Musketeers as the guardians of the Palace, and suggests a test: if the Musketeers cannot go one day without drawing their swords, they will lose their traditional job. As Monsieur Treville announces this to his men, Dogtanian spots his horse Sandy in the street and runs to him. The stable-hand from Meune, Planchet, has brought him, and Dogtanian goes in search of his friends so he can borrow money to pay him.
