  • It's OK, though not the very best.

    The idea of Jaime going undercover as a singer is cool, but the real value-added element is the gentle way she reserves judgment on Tammy for Buck's benefit. Once again, she doesn't really hurt anybody, and works with her fellow good guys rather than hogging the linelight. Nice! Lindsay does a way better job with the song she sings here than she did with "Feelings" in the first season "Bionic Beauty" episode, and we totally believe that as hard as it is for him, Buck can accept what Jaime is telling him about his associates becomes of her compassionate delivery. As for the plot device of an extra soundtrack on a record, audible only with the right equipment, like subliminal messages on records it may seem a bit dated today, but was totally plausible when it first aired.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Penn and his cronies carry out his plan to kill Jaime, Muffin and Bill, they start a fire in the control booth of the recording studio. When the last henchman leaves the booth, he closes the door. Instead of it closing, the door is left slightly ajar. Later as Jaime and the other OSI agents attempt to escape, the door is completely closed and locked!

    • When Buck Buckley (Hoyt Axton) runs on stage in the opening scene, not only does the music start several beats before he begins strumming, but his *electric* guitar isn't even plugged into an amplifier!

    • When Jaime squats down to jump over the electrified fence outside Buckley's recording studio, the "whooping" sound that connotes her ascent/decent begins before she even springs up. In fact, it begins about halfway through her squatting down!

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Jaime: Muffin, we gotta get outta here.
      Muffin: Well, you tell me how, and I'll be right behind you. I tell you, I'm as scrummy as a snake in a fryin' pan.

    • Muffin: Well... I dunno... one minute, I'm upstairs, snoozin' away, and the next I'm bein' hauled down here by a couple of my ol' buddy's guards. I'm gonna tell you, sweetheart, you sure know how to make enemies out of friends.
      Jaime: (sourly) Oh, rub it in.

    • Jaime: They've gotta be holding [Bill] in that recording studio, because the security's incredible.
      Oscar: Have you got his picture, Jaime?
      Jaime: Yeah, I've got it here. Oscar, I gotta tell ya—this poor guy—if you sent him in here lookin' like this, it's no wonder he got caught. He looks just like you.
      Oscar: But that's an O.S.I. requirement, Jaime. We all look alike.

    • (Jaime, Muffin and Bill have just escaped from a burning studio control room)
      Jaime: You alright?
      Bill: Who are you?
      Jaime: Jaime Sommers. And the guy in the pajamas here is Muffin Calhoun. We're from the O.S.I.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Buck Buckley: "No matter what her reasons for doing this, I'm gonna stand by her like she stood by me."
      The character names of Buck and Tammy in this episode are obviously an homage to Country Music legends Buck Owens and Tammy Wynette. The reason the quote above is a cultural reference is that Tammy Wynette's biggest hit was "Stand By Your Man."
