Paris is returning from a mission and driving his motorcycle through Switzerland. He’s unaware that a car is following behind him. The man inside, Karl Maur, calls ahead and tells a sniper that their subject is approaching. Maur’s car pulls up to Paris and sideswipes him off the road, and the sniper then shoots Paris with a tranquilizer dart. Maur gets out, checks on Paris, and tells his man to take Paris away and that they have something special in mind for him. As Maur walks away, he sees the headlight, examines it briefly, and tosses it away...

Episode Quotes
Paris: You look sad. I don’t like that.
Enid: I’m sorry. Maybe I am sad, but I don’t want to spoil your evening.
Paris: How about a dance? You can’t polka and be sad at the same. It’s impossible.

Jim: Paris, do you think it’s more than just a coincidence that the girl shows up here, now, and is making a play for you?
Paris: She’s not making a play, Jim. Can’t you understand emotion, or have you become some kind of machine?
