Scott and Kelly are partying with two girls at a café in Paris. A drunken man at the adjacent table harasses them and mentions that they work for the Pentagon, and the agents suggest their girls check their makeup. Once they leave, the drunk, Donald Forman, explains that he met their department head at a cocktail party in Washington. Kelly warns him off just as the song ends. Everyone applauds and Kelly turns back to Donald, only to discover someone has killed him with a knife in the back...

Episode Quotes
Paul Landon: He was stupid. Let me tell you, that's the only word for him, stupid.
Kelly: How do you figure that?
Paul Landon: Ah, what kind of way is that for a valuable man to die, with a knife in his back in a saloon?
Kelly: So he died, that's nothing to get upset about. That's what he signed on for. That's what we all sign on for, to get killed. That's why there's a thing called "Next of Kin" in the application form and we get a government insurance policy.

(as Lori sings)
Scott: Mmm, mmm, mmm... have mercy! Now, that lady... is a beautiful lady.

Lori Rogers: Hey Scotty, how's the spy business?
Kelly: What'd you say?
Lori Rogers: All I said was "How's the spy business?"
Kelly: What's she talking about?
Lori: Get you two. I love your act. All you have to do is choreograph it and I'll bet Jack can get it booked for you.

Kelly: What does the "ha ha" mean by the chick's name in Istanbul?
Scott: She tickled me.

Kelly: Well, what did she say that got you started in the first place?
Scott: About the way her brother died.
Kelly: What do you know about it?
Scott: Have you ever done any scuba diving or anything?
Kelly: On occasion, yeah.
Scott: With a punctured eardrum?

Kelly: You really think anyone's going to fall for a dumb trick like that?
Scott: It's not a dumb trick, man. Struggling people clutch at straws; just check your Machiavelli.
Kelly: Check my what?
Scott: And if he doesn't answer, just send him over and he'll tell me what's going on, all right?

Scott: No, you don't drink, right?
Lori: No, never. Never anymore.
Scott: Now what did it? Was it that Elmer Gantry story or The Lost Weekend? Did you get a special message or was it the party where you saw what happened and who did it?

Cultural References
