Count Olaf is always sneaky in trying to capture the Baudelaires. He disguises himself and deceives the other adults so he can legally gain the Baudelaires fortune. However, when he learns that the Quagmires have a fortune, he doesn't do anything sneaky at all. He has the white-faced women drag them to his car in front of 4 adults and makes no attempt to hide what he's doing. Why didn't he just do same with the Baudelaires? While they were running laps, he could have just had the white-faced women come out and take them to the car, while everyone else was asleep. This plan may have not worked, as Duncan and Isadora were spying, but he didn't know that. When the white-faced women put the triplets in Olaf's car, Klaus runs up to the car, leans in, and tries to rescue Isadora. This was a perfect opportunity for Count Olaf to capture Klaus as well, but he just pushes him away from the car. The same thing happens in TEE. The Baudelaires run up to the truck where the Quagmires are hidden in the statue, presenting a great opportunity for Count Olaf, Esme, and the Hook-Handed Man to whisk them away as well. Any thoughts on this?
