"Mission: Impossible: The Code (#4.1)" (1969)
[Jim Phelps, Willie, and Paris are admiring Barney's latest device, a sort of traveling drill; Paris is holding a Nine of Diamonds card up to its camera]
James Phelps: Great, Barney.
Barney Collier: There'll be no transmission problems, Jim, because the Presidential Mansion has its own television transmitter. We'll simply piggyback onto the parabolic antenna and get a strong signal.
James Phelps: Mm-hm. Now, their normal method of sending coded messages is by transatlantic cable, but for extra security precautions, the invasion plans are being delivered by a courier from the UPR. He'll arrive at three o'clock.
Willy Armitage: Will it just be in code form?
James Phelps: No, no, it'll be treated the same as the other messages. It's a unique process where the code is hidden by a photographic overlay. Some kind of chemical spray is placed between the code and the photograph allowing them to be joined together, and another spray separates them once the message has been transmitted.
Barney Collier: Once the courier's photograph gets into the communications room and is removed, the code's only visible for a few seconds.
James Phelps: That'll be long enough.
