Episode Quotes
Smon: So long, darling. It was nice while it lasted. However, there are as good fishes in the Mediterranean as ever flew out of it.



Cultural References
Visual: A Russian agent uses a fake hollow cigarette to blow knock-out dust in Templar's face, rendering him unconscious.

This exact method would be used again on Roger Moore (as James Bond) in the 1977 film The Spy Who Loved Me.
