Bobby and Oliver are at home when FBI agent Fred Sanders stops by the house to speak to Mike. What the boys don't know is that Mr. Sanders' routine and mundane task is to confirm a few issues with Mike's clearance for him to work on a building for a classified government project. Later, Sam stops by the house wanting to discuss a private issue with Mike, which Sam says he will divulge to Alice and the rest of the family at the proper time. Unlike what Alice hopes it is (such as a honeymoon cottage), the issue is Sam wanting to enlarge the butcher shop and needing some rough plans from Mike to see if it is financially possible. Because of the secretive nature of Sam's visit, Bobby and Oliver think it has something to do with Mr. Sanders' visit. After Sam tells Bobby and Oliver some wild tales of sleuthing and spying while he was in the army, Bobby and Oliver believe Sam is a spy working with Mike. Overhearing another story between Sam and his landlord, Mr. Gronsky, Bobby and Oliver ... Written by Huggo

Bobby and Oliver give Sam the 'freeze'.
20 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really like this episode, of course 12 year old Bobby and cousin Oliver jump to conclusions that they assumed Sam(Allan Melvin) was a double agent/spy. Funny scenes were when Greg poured talcum powder on Bobby and Oliver. Sam tells the boys how fearless and courageous army tall tales,they never caught 'Sly Sam'.

Near the end Bobby and Oliver lock Sam and Mr.Gronsky in the freezer. When Mike sees this he unlocks the freezer, 'How in the world could you boys possibly believe something like that,don't lock anyone in anything anymore', Sam replies 'This is one spy who's glad he came in from the cold'.
