Recap

Somewhere in Sicily, Napoleon is in a produce wagon outside a manor and taking photos of mobster Frank Cariago meeting with his Uncle Giuliano. The two men greet each other and go inside to their conference while Cariago's bodyguard stands watch outside. Illya, disguised as a winemaker carrying a basket of grapes, walks by the bodyguard as he goes on his round...

Episode Quotes
Ginger LaVeer: I bet you meet so many beautiful girls in your job, you get tired of looking at them.
Illya: (posing as a pool repairman) It takes a few.
Ginger LaVeer: I see you're the strong, silent type.
Illya: I have to concentrate on my job.
Ginger LaVeer: Why? The television repairman didn't have to. Neither did the refrigerator repairman, or the electric toaster repairman. Ooh, or the egg cooker repairman.
Napoleon: (listening in) Egg cooker repairman?
Illya: Egg cooker repairman?
Ginger LaVeer: Yes, Frank. Mr. Cariago eats an awful lot of eggs.

Cariago: Boy, that's just like U.N.C.L.E. style. Sending a pool repairman to check up on me. They never did like me.

Sheldon Veblen: Take the cast, for goodness sakes! Take--take the script. Here, wait a minute. You want me to cut out my heart so you can take that, too?
Process Server: No, that won't be necessary. You see, the order specified only negotiable items.

Cariago: How much would it take, uh, to get you back into the black?
Sheldon Veblen: We're shooting in color.

Ginger LaVeer: I don't know about Frank, but nobody else knows. Mr. Veblen says those cheap TV outfits have spies everywhere. Isn't it ridiculous? As if a spy would sneak into my dressing room just to peek at his crummy old script.
Illya: Ridiculous.



Cultural References
Ginger LaVeer: I saw Gone With the Wind four times.

The 1939 movie Gone With the Wind won ten Academy Awards and, adjusting for inflation, is the biggest money-making movie of all time.
