Episode Notes
Guest agent: bacteriologist Roger Lee



Episode Quotes
Barney: What about the security in the area?
Dan: We did get an agent of ours in there once.
Cinnamon: Did he say anything about getting out?
Dan: As a matter of fact he didn't.
Willy: Why not?
Dan: He never got out.

Janos Passik: I have no time for anything else.
Cinnamon: Not even time to buy me a drink?
Janos Passik: You have made a mistake, Miss Kevin.
Cinnamon: Oh?
Janos Passik: American women are seldom so straightforward. They pretend to be coy and reserved. Rarely do they come right out and ask a man such a question.



Episode Goofs
Septicemic plague is spread by animal bites, not physical contact as stated here.

As is clear from Roger's description of septicemic plague, you don't just pump the highly contagious waste product out with the water. An autoclave is used to superheat and destroy it.
