Stockwell is contacted by Ivan Trigorin, aka "Brown Fox", his former partner at the CIA for nearly ten years. The Russian is looking for a top secret stealth bomber the Americans have stolen from the Soviets and starts torturing the General for information. Carla informs the A-Team they have 36 hours to find Stockwell, or the entire operation will cease to be and they will become fugitives once more. Using Frankie's cousin's mobile home as a base, all signs lead to a psychiatric hospital in L.A. So, Murdock has to act insane once more and impersonates Frank Sinatra. Written by

During the final season, David McCallum
guest starred as a Russian villain named Ivan who was once partnered with General Stockwell (Robert Vaughn
). This reunited the two former The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
(1964) stars. The episode, "The Say Uncle Affair", was formatted in the same manner as an episode of The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
(1964), complete with "chapter titles", the word "affair" in the title, and similar scene transitions. It is thus far the last time that the two actors have worked together. See more
In the Chinese consulate, the dial on the safe changes. When we first see it, it is black with white numbers on the face of the dial (a wall safe). The close-up shot shows it as one with a silver dial with black numbers. Also, the numbers are on the edge of the dial, indicating that it's probably a floor safe. See more
This is the last time I will be able to communicate. You must find Stockwell within the next 36 hours.
Everything folds up and disappears. This process has already begun. Unless the General's voice hits the blue phone before the deadline, everything, every bit of this operation will vanish. You would be on your own.
Well, what about our pardon?
It disappears with the General.
