One of the best Get Smart episodes
18 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first episode where they really seem to hit their stride. The dialog is smart (no pun intended), especially the tongue-in-cheek repartee between Max and Mary Jack Armstrong. Their scenes together are hilarious, especially the "calling card" bit (they both know Max is using a fake name) and, topping that one, the drink-switching scene.

What makes this episode so good is that the characters don't seem to be taking themselves too seriously. It's as if they are giving a sly wink to the audience, asking us to play along and to have fun right along with them. Later episodes had many plot holes where the bad guys could have seen through Max's "covert" actions but do not. But in this episode, the holes are put front and center and are part of the comedy (e.g., the calling cards, the drink switches, and Max's activation of his shoulder locating device).

Great lines throughout, including: "Do I have to look?", "Could he be playing...leap frog?", and "Look, it's my nervous habit, not yours." Great stuff.
