    • TRIVIA (4)

      • Disguises: tattooed sailor, waiter, elderly postman

      • Gadgets: thermite string, underwater mini-explosive, pocket blowtorch

      • It's clear by the lighting that when Jim is swimming inside of the indoor "tank," he is in fact outdoors in a pool or reservoir of some sort.

      • In one particular underwater scene, there is a clear picture of a guy in a scuba-diving suit. It's also clear that Robert Conrad is swimming in an aquarium of some sort since the concrete walls can be seen behind him, despite the fact that he's supposedly in a natural lake. Then there's the time when West comes up for air...and his hair is dry!

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Crystal Fair: Oh, you must be Colonel Richmond. Crystal Fair's my name.
        Colonel Richmond: How do you do?
        Crystal Fair
        : Yes. And you're Artemus Gordon!
        Artie: Yes.
        Crystal Fair: Oh, Jim's told me so much about you. I feel like we're old friends, too.
        Artie: Thank you. Why, you dog. How'd you keep this one undercover all this time?
        Jim: Because I never saw this women before in my life.

      • Richmond: What are you going to do about it?
        Artie: I don't know. I think I may even learn to grow fond if it after a while.
        Richmond: What? I'm not talking about your blasted tattoo! I'm talking about Jim!

      • Calamander: The couch you are rising from once sagged beneath the weights of the Queen of all the Assyrians. May one hope that you rested as well as that scarlet-lipped Semiramis herself.

      • Calamander: You'll have to enter, perform your chores, and leave, all within the allotted time period. Or else, frankly, it could be exceedingly awkward.
        Jim: For "awkward," substitute "fatal."
        Calamander: One tries not to dwell on that.
