    This is a very good Mission Impossible plot, because of the inevitability of the outcome. Once the plot is put into play, the psychology of the enemy compels the result. Each of the two living thieves is compelled to act, as dictated by the IMF plan. Paris impersonates the dead thief, but has amnesia and so does not know where the isotope is. Jim interrogates him. Leonard Nimoy is outstanding, as he recalls his youth and eventually the theft. The lovely Julie Gregg gets the information on the isotope's location from the thief who knows where it is and imparts the information to Paris through a coded message. Then Paris reveals the location to the other living theif and the two meet at the location. The inevitable shot occurs, while the IMF team escapes in a truck.moreless

    • Johan: (about the song being played on the piano) Isn't that...?
      Alena: (emotionally) Beyond the Shadow of Today.
      Johan: Yes, the song which you and Otto used to dance away the long hours of the night. Has it ever occurred to you that you might be overdoing the grief?
      Alena: I loved Otto and he loved me.
      Johan: Still it has been two years and life does go on.

    • Johan: How long have you been working here, Miss Cauzon?
      Monique: Just since yesterday.
      Johan: Oh then I am delighted. I should hate to think that you might have been here for weeks or maybe even months and I hadn't known it.

    • Vorda: It would be regrettable if my investigators were to uncover something about you that would put an end to your brilliant career.
      Jim: You're threatening me, Colonel. You're wasting your time. I have nothing to hide.
      Vorda: Doctor, anybody can be provided with something to hide.

    • Johan: (to Monique) What do you think I face? You think Vorda will shoot me and leave it at that? If Vorda finds out about me, I will see to it that he will also find out about you. You invited yourself into this, Miss Cauzon, nobody forced you.
