  • Trivia

    • This episode makes it quite clear to even the most prurient of viewers that the relationship between Steed and Emma is strictly platonic - the phrase "just good friends" is actually used.

    • Tag: Arriving at Emma's apartment and astonished to see flowers in every corner, Steed frustrates Emma by pretending to know nothing of her 'special occasion'. Then, coming clean and inviting her to join him on a flight to Parish, she repays him in kind by stating that she is already packed!

    • The opening teaser for this episode: As Mrs. Peel looks in to a mirror; her reflection is replaced by that of Steed's. He states, 'Mrs. Peel - we're needed.'

  • Quotes

    • Mrs.Peel: (to Steed) One should never take a man for granted, but one does.

    • Mrs. Peel: Help yourself to a drink.
      Steed: Erm, thanks...
      Mrs. Peel: You know where it is.
      Steed: (looking confused) On second thoughts better not, keep a clear head and all that.
      Mrs Peel : Oh, you have changed.

    • (Inspecting Steed's place)
      Mrs. Peel: (as Lola) They've been having a ball.
      Steed: (as Basil) A blast, with my '47… and not even chilled!
      Mrs. Peel: Now Steed, don't get irate.
      Steed: Irate? My Cigars, they've been smoking my cigars! And he's… bitten the end off.
      Mrs. Peel: Now, no–
      Steed: Bitten!
      Mrs. Peel: Calm down.
      Steed: What sort of a fiend are we dealing with? A man who would bite the end off a cigar is capable of anything.
