Napoleon and Illya pull up to Del Floria's and enter U.N.C.L.E. Headquarters to meet with Waverly. A man comes into the shop a minute later. He identifies himself as Barstow and asks Del Floria if he can get a spot out of his shoot. When the tailor's back is turned, "Barstow" slips a small box under a nearby pile of coats. Once the man leaves, Del Floria puts his coat with the others and notices the box. Reacting quickly, he sprays it with a chemical from a hose...

Episode Quotes
Oliver Barnes: Pleasant nap, Mr. Solo?
Napoleon: Well, it's always pleasant to wake up and discover that you're still alive, General.

Oliver Barnes: Are you suggesting that we simply kill you, Mr. Solo?
Napoleon: Oh, no, no, no. You can just let me off at the next bus stop.

Waverly: Mr. Solo seems to have lost his tie tack. I hope the same can't be said of his life.

Dr. James Febray: The devil with the accommodations. And these childish games, passing me off as a shah.
Illya: I once passed myself off as a Tibetan lama.

Illya: How long do we have before the gun is ready for testing again?
Dr. James Febray: Oh, ten, fifteen minutes. But that's time enough for our escape, isn't it?
Illya: Well, it's not very much time.
Dr. James Febray: During the fight I started, I grabbed these. Acid. When they're mixed, they explode.
Illya: I always say that when you're locked in an escape-proof room, it's good to have a physicist with you.

Episode Goofs
Abbe sees something off-camera that makes a hissing noise. However, the camera shows a lizard.

However, when she runs over to Napoleon, she says it was a snake. They told the actress to react as if it would be a snake, then used a different inset shot in post-production.

When Waverly ends the transmission from Napoleon, he pushes the extendible part of the communicator in... and it shoots out the other end.

Although the name of the shop and the owner is Del Floria.

It is misspelled Del Florio in the end credits.
