Perry Mason: The Case of the Baffling Bug

Tryon Laboratories hires Paul Drake to protect its discoveries, but an industrial spy still manages to pierce their security. So Drake is very relieved when Tryon employee Horace Leigh calls claiming to know the identity of the spy. And then Drake is very unhappy, for when he arrives at Tryon he discovers Leigh dead and floating. Did Dr. Meade kill him, as the police think? Or someone else? One thing Drake is sure of: Perry Mason will get to the bottom of it.

Episode Quotes
Della: This is delicious! What is it, Dr. Tachikawa?
Paul: Della, please, that is one thing an Occidental never asks in an Oriental restaurant.
Dr. Todd Meade: Right. It's considered a flagrant invasion of privacy.
Dr. Maseo Tachikawa: Don't listen to them, Miss Street.
Dr. Todd Meade: You know this is the first time in weeks, I've been able to joke about invasion of privacy.
Perry: Well, I'm afraid it's nothing to joke about. Consider what it would ultimately mean: no privacy in police investigation, no privacy in the judge's chambers, not even in the jury room.
Paul: Well we're coming up with some pretty good weapons. High-powered anti-bug generators, sensitive detectors, telephone scramblers.
Dr. Maseo Tachikawa: Not so, Mr. Drake. The science will always be one step ahead.
Della: There must be some way.
Perry: There is, Della. One sure way. But it's pretty far out. Just plain old-fashioned personal integrity.
Dr. Todd Meade: You're right, Mr. Mason, that is pretty far out.
Della: Maybe it would be easier if we all lived in cocoons.
Paul: Della, there's one thing you will always find inside a cocoon ... a bug.
