Chief: Admiral, what was the President's decision on the ransom?
Admiral Hargrade: Oh, well, I talked to Herbert about that just a few minutes ago.
Chief: Herbert? Sir, Herbert Hoover is no longer President.
Admiral Hargrade: Too bad. I thought he showed a lot of promise.
Admiral Hargrade: Well exactly how dangerous is this formula?
Maxwell Smart: Well sir, within 24 hours, it could dry up every lake, river and stream in the United States.
Chief: We'd be at the mercy of any country that had water.
Maxwell Smart: Bootlegging would come back. People would start making bathtub water.
Chief: KAOS knows that either one of us can lead them to Bediyoskin. Now we go back in there and let them overhear that one of us is going to him. KAOS captures the one who goes and the other follows.
Maxwell Smart: One of us goes, one of us follows.
Maxwell Smart: And one of us already knows who goes and who follows.
Chief: You go.
Maxwell Smart: Now both of us know.
[claps hands triumphantly]
Maxwell Smart: Chief, KAOS has just struck and struck hard. They've dried up Florida's two largest bodies of water: Lake Okeechobee and the swimming pool at the Fountain Blue hotel.
