Carleton:
We've developed a new pair of shoes in the lab, 86. Notice the steel-enforced toes for kicking? And inside the heels, there are secret compartments containing our latest emergency pellets.

Maxwell Smart:
Can I see it in a 10?

Chief of Control:
Show him the pellets, Carleton.

Carleton:
In the left heel compartment, there are two pellets. The smaller one is a concussion pellet. Now, if it's thrown up against something or activated by heat, it will blow a 10x15 foot room to smithereens.

Chief of Control:
Now, Max, do you know what this larger pill is for?

Maxwell Smart:
Larger rooms.

Chief of Control:
[rolls his eyes] Max, KAOS does have ways of making a man talk. If you are captured and if it looks really tough, this may be your one ace in the hole. This pill, when swallowed, will bring painless death in about twenty seconds. Are there any questions?

Maxwell Smart:
How do I get them to take it?

Chief of Control:
Let's get on to the next pellet.

Carleton:
This... this pellet contains a very volatile liquid. When activated, it produces a thick protective smoke screen.

Chief of Control:
Now, I'm assigning Agent 99 to accompany you on this one, Max. The princess has a reputation of being a little bit wild, and I think it'll take both of you to watch her and keep her out of trouble.

Maxwell Smart:
[putting on the new shoes] Yes, well, I'm raring to go, Chief, just as soon as I get this shoe on.

[Max stands up and stomps his foot; smoke emanates from his shoe]

Maxwell Smart:
Actually, Chief, I don't think I'll be needing the smoke pellet.

Chief:
Now our one clue is the melody you heard just before the murder. Arrick, is the Detect-O-Tune ready?

Arrick:
Yes, Chief.

Chief:
Good.

Maxwell Smart:
How does it work?

Arrick:
Well, the Detect-O-Tune can reconstruct any melody in the same way that a criminal's face can be reconstructed through the descriptions of witnesses. Now, can you remember any of the notes that you heard?

Chief:
Just hum anything you remember, Max.

Maxwell Smart:
Ok, let me see now, Chief. [begins humming] Daaa, daaa, daaa, daaa, doo, daaa, daaa...

[Arrick then slowly plays same notes on Detect-O-Tune]

Maxwell Smart:
A little faster than that.

[Arrick plays notes faster and faster and quickly gets carried away]

Chief:
ARRICK!

Arrick:
Sorry, Chief.

Chief:
Try to get it, Max. This may be vital!

Maxwell Smart:
All right, Chief. Let me see. [begins humming] Daaa, daaa, daaa, daaa...

Arrick:
[humming along] Bom, bom, bom, bom...

Maxwell Smart:
No, no, no. Daaa, daaa, daaa, da-da-dee, daaa, daaa...

Maxwell Smart, Chief, Arrick:
Daaa, daaa, daaa, dee, daa, dee-dah... [All three start singing] "Heart of my heart, how I love that melody, love the melody, heart of my heart, brings back a memory!" [Max and Arrick realize what they're doing and stop singing, Chief gets carried away and continues singing]

Chief:
"When we were kids on the corner of the street, we were rough and..." [Chief stops singing, noticing the others have stopped as well]

[Max takes out a notebook and starts writing something]

Chief:
What are you doing, Max?

Maxwell Smart:
I'm putting you down for the lead in "The Spy Frolics", Chief.

Chief:
MAX!

[Max puts his notebook away]
