    • Max: You see, Dr. Brahm, you never really had a chance. Behind you stands the KAOS High Command. But behind me is the Chief. A silent, dedicated man who would willingly send men to their death to overcome you. There's just one question I'd like to ask, Dr. Brahm.
      Dr. Brahm: Yeah?
      Max: As a psychiatrist, do you think you can help him?

    • (Max and 99 are trapped in a phone booth rapidly filling with water, Max tries calling for help.)

      Max: Hello, Operator? Now listen to me and listen carefully. I want you to get me a special Washington phone number. This is a top secret number. Only a few people know it. I want you to forget it the minute that I tell it to you. The number is 628-3097.
      Operator: Oh! You want CONTROL.

    • Chief: Your emergency report last night has been corraborated to an extent, 86. A Miss Joanna Sloan was found drowned. In a river.
      Max: But I'm telling you, Chief, she was drowned in a phone booth.
      Chief: Max, be reasonable. How could a girl drown in a phone booth?
      Max: How do I know? Maybe she couldn't swim?

    • Joanna: (on phone) Is this Maxwell Smart, the secret agent?
      Max: Yes. This is Maxwell Smart. But what makes you think I'm a secret agent?
      Joanna: I live in your apartment house, Mr. Smart, and once I saw you talking into your shoe.

    • Max: I mean, think about it, Chief. Can you imagine me as a mental patient?

    • (Max and 99 are trapped in a phone booth that is rapidly flooding with water)
      Operator: Your time is up sir. Would you please deposit one more dime?
      Max: But Operator, I don't have any more change. And this is a matter of life and death!
      Operator: That's what they all say.

    • Max: A trip to the moon on gossamer was just one of those things.

      When Max is describing his strange dreams to the KAOS psychiatrist, he bases them on the lyrics to Just One of Those Things, a song written by Cole Porter in 1935. It has been sung by Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and many others.
