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

Yes, Chief.


Maxwell Smart:
How does it work?

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?

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]


Sorry, Chief.

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

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

[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]

"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]

What are you doing, Max?

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


[Max puts his notebook away]
