1.  Anatomy of a Lover

September 17, 1966

"Hymie's programming for neatness was stronger
than his programming for evil."

- Maxwell Smart

KAOS reprograms Hymie to murder the Chief. After Max foils the attempt, and unable to go through dismantling him, he hides Hymie in his apartment. Posing as Max's cousin, Hymie meets the Chief's daughter who immediately becomes smitten with the robot. KAOS again reprograms Hymie, and this time, he's out to kill Max!

2.  Strike While the Agent is Hot

September 24, 1966

"How do you like that? The old secret panel in the bookcase trick.

- Maxwell Smart

An agent dies, which leaves Max in charge of the "Spy's Guild" labor negotiations.

Director: Gary Nelson, Writer: Bud Grossman

Guest starring: Pat McCaffrie, Alan Dexter, Dino Natlai, Lisa Pera, Maria Sokolov

Smart reveals that he knew that the KAOS agent's gun was empty, because he identifies it as a Luger, which only holds six rounds. The weapon he takes from the agent is actually a Walther P38. In either case, both weapons, like most automatics, have eight round magazines. If the Walther P38 sounds familiar it's because the Walther PPK is James Bonds weapon of choice. It's he P38 only appeared in the film adaptations of From Russia with Love and Goldfinger but was not Bond's offically issued pistol. But, if you watch Bond when he is shooting at Goldfinger's men after the car chase, you can see he's holding a P38 instead of his PPK. It's possibly a movie mistake.
