[Illya is in the hospital after suffering a concussion]
One more day of bed rest, and you may have to put padding on the walls.
Now, now, no negative thoughts. Think how lucky you are to be here.
Well, you could have been killed jumping off that train with Margo. Instead, you're here getting plenty of rest, you have time for meditation, uh... fruit of the vine, flowers of the field. Exquisite view.
What exquisite view?
[Illya's very attractive nurse enters]
That exquisite view.

Taking a riff from "The Most Dangerous Game", Darrin McGavin, armed with a rifle and a leopard (!) hunts Solo, armed with his wits and with a pretty girl in tow, through an abandoned part of town, while the clock ticks towards Illya's death. Surprisingly grim at times (for a 1960's network show), and a little less predictable than usual, 'The Deadly Quest Affair' is one of the better 4th season MFU episodes. The reciprocal open and closing scenes play on the relationship between the two UNCLE agents, which, when done well, was one of the best parts of the series. This episode was a welcome break from super-villains/super-weapons shtick, which was getting a little tired.
