  • The diamond market may be at risk.

    6.6
    An average episode, made much better with the appearance of the beautiful Nancy Kovak (co-star in the Elvis Presley film, "Frankie and Johnny" where she was a knock-out) and Ricardo Montalban in his second appearance on UNCLE.



    Solo and Illya investigage the pudding company as a diamond was found in one of their puddings in a restaurant. The pudding store was actually a front for a foreign UNCLE headquarters in a later episode.



    Solo and Illya visit a well-known precous stone thief, and learn how he might break into a well-guarded vault. On their way underground, Illya tells Napoleon, "If you must get us lost, could you do it a bit faster". Not much more humour in this episode.



    The story is rather slow, the music average and only the UNCLE pistols (and there are a lot them) are used.moreless

    • Raphael Delgado: What is there left for a man like me? My masterpiece has been completed. Can you picture me, sitting on my patio clipping coupons for the rest of my life? An artist who ceases to create, dies. And I am not quite prepared for that yet.

    • Rafini: I wish I were 20 years younger. I'd be tempted to go along with you.
      Illya: If I were 20 years older, I'd be more than tempted to stay.

    • Illya: Gentlemen, please! My head!
      Gomez: We can't stop now.
      Illya: Why not?
      Gomez: You've noticed the natives have all been friendly. These rhythms let them know we're friendly too. You know, around here they have a hobby of chopping your head off and then shrinking it.
      Illya: I'm not sure I wouldn't prefer it.

    • Solo: Next time, try not waiting till the last minute.
      Illya: Next time try not to go that far up the Amazon.
