"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.

[Jim and Willy have only a few minutes to solve the code, which appears as an enormous block of five-lettered groupings]
James Phelps: The photograph.
Willy Armitage: What?
James Phelps: Well, there has to be a key to the grouping variations somewhere. We know that it's not in that message itself, but it could be on the photograph that the code was transmitted on. Run the tape back.

Willy Armitage: I don't see a legible number anywhere in the picture.
James Phelps: I don't, either, but it's gotta be in there somewhere... The clock. In the tower of the building in the foreground. 2:33. Well, there can't be too many variations. It could be that every second word of every third line of every third group is transposed.
[Jim types this possibility into a special decoding keypad. He tears off the resulting printout]
James Phelps: Nope. Maybe every second line.

James Phelps: That should make both Eva Gollan and Major Denesch, the General's aide, happy. They both want the General's wealth to fulfill their personal ambitions. And right now, Eva has the upper hand. But her actions are gonna be highly unpredictable.
Willy Armitage: I'll keep her busy, but, uh, what about Denesch?
James Phelps: He'll be watching her closely, Willy. Now, once you give her the phony bank numbers, she'll leave the Schloss, then he'll follow her.
Tracey: How will we know we have the right number, Jim?
James Phelps: The General doesn't trust his memory, Tracey. So he's put the bank number onto a computer. Only he knows how to operate it.
Paris: How much time do we have, Jim?
James Phelps: Uh, the General's lawyer's due to arrive at the bank in Zurich at about 3:30. That means that we have to send the correct number by three o'clock, to give them time to empty his vault.
Paris: Can we break Gollan by three?
James Phelps: Yes... If we can make him believe that you'll kill me and save him.
