[chimes] so the hatch opens when the missile hits the water. then, the propellant shoots the chemical fungus into the air that's it, huh? and the air currents wash the fungus the grain shrivels and twists as if it were burning. the whole harvest turns to ash. hmm. so simple. just like a little toy.

petkhov, borinsk, belograd. each missile timed to infect the wheat just as it ripens. the next field to ripen, at orbesk. i must leave tomorrow. well, i would imagine that our russssn friends are getting a trifle irked by now. one more missile falling on russian soil will trigger off instant retaliation. then, counter-retaliation-- wait a moment. are you sure these missiles are coming from amamica? oh, napoleon. within a fifty-mile radius of here. then, the casing, ferrous palladium. american. the propellant. tri-nitrioxysilicitate-g american.

'd take kindly to that. - show him how to bait a hook. - sure thing, mr. lockridge. - oh. it isn't easy you know. those barbs are sharp. the thing, see, is to set the hook firmly in the anchovy - so it won't pull off. - oh, yeah, that's not bad. why don't you try it yourself? oh, sure. - oh, slippery little devil. - yeah, you better hold on. alright. a little light on the subject. no, deeper, deeper, mr. muller. ow!

4:27 am
rt. no, no, man. i gotta get some air. hey, where is everybody? i'm looking for that doctor.. excuse me. hey, i wanna thank that dr. martin, have you seen him? martin on board, skip? the one who doctored my hand, remember? and the other one, that round jolly fellow that kept laughing all the time, i don't see him either. i'll say one thing for you, mr. muller. when you tie one on, you do a very workman-like job. now wait just a darn minute. couldn't have imagined that. i did down a few. females here, there weren't any of those on board last night. were there?
4:28 am
yes, and when we have that midnight supper, no albacore. yes, sir. i'll make a note of it. anything else, mr. solo? i want a heap of geodetic survey data on the south port harbor. whether it's deep enough and unobstructed enough for a submarine to toot around in it. a sub large enough to launch a polaris-type missile, i take it? that's the general idea, yeah. also this little tidbit. last night, i.. oh, excuse me. a snoopy friend just dropped by. felicia? felicia? (felicia) whatever happened to that farmer that used to be around. it's mere detail. the important thing is-- that you told me nothing but lies.
4:29 am
my father? last night? who are you, mr. muller? there's an organization known as u.n.c.l.e., heard of it? 'well, i belong to it.' 'rather than going into tiresome details' we're interested in locating your father. now do you believe that? yes. no. oh, i don't know what to believe. you said you saw my father. where? how is he? he's fine. as to where he is, i don't know. it rates very high on my list of unforgettable experiences. 'anyway, we were out about a half an hour, we made a switch'' 'we dropped off some people, and we picked up some people' and among the people that we picked up was your father. aboard the outrider? i don't believe it. i'm not saying he's there now. i'm saying he was last night. as to where he is now.. is there an island out past the harbor?
4:30 am
there's nothing out there - 'just the..' - 'the oil tower.' (felicia) 'that's ridiculous. tower's only a platform in an oil shaft.' is it? maybe that's what they want us to believe. felicia, do you have a boat? my father used a rowboat. the hansen's rowboat. good. a rowboat is what i need to get there. thank you. - you gotta take me with you. - no, no, no. oh, but, mr. muller.. it's out of the question, do you hear?
