Quotes

Maxwell Smart: Dietrich, will you get that shaving cream off your face?
Dietrich: Well why?
Maxwell Smart: Why? Because if KAOS happens to be looking through that window, and they see that shaving cream all over your face, they're gonna know you're not Mrs. Feldman.
Dietrich: You're right.
[starts wiping off the shaving cream with towel]
Maxwell Smart: Besides, Mrs. Feldman uses an electric razor.

The Admiral Goes Bad
8 February 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

The most interesting thing about this one is seeing William Shallert play completely against type and portray Earl Kibbee, a ruthless KAOS hit-man/accountant called "the Exterminator". Just look at the way he trashes character actor Vito Scotti's mortuary when he hires him to kill a KAOS defector! The Exterminator must kill a KAOS defector who Max is protecting in his apartment. Through absolute dumb luck, Max avoids all of Kibbee's attempts to assassinate the defector (a burly man who for the most part is disguised as 99's babysitter)and they keep blowing up in the assassin's face.

While Shallert does a good job, the script is only so-so and seeing Shallert does make one wish he'd reappear as the Admiral sometime in the episode.
