Max and 99 are getting ready to finally go on their honeymoon, but just as they are about to leave they find out that Max has been called up for his naval reserve duty. Max then goes to the Chief to see if he can do something but it turns out that the Chief has also been called up. Also, due to CONTROL being a secret organization, the Navy doesn't know they are secret agents. However, the worst part is that it will prevent the Chief from meeting with a Spanish secret agent. Max and the Chief soon discover that their roles are reversed as Max is an ensign and the Chief is a sailor. While on duty Max and the Chief see in a newspaper that 99 has contacted the agent, but discover that he is an impostor because he is signing 99's autograph book right handed and the real agent is left handed. Now they must find a way to get off the ship and stop the impostor before he makes off with some very important papers. Written by Brian Washington

When Max is outside in uniform, pacing back and forth, giving orders to the few crewmen the camera cuts in close to him. At that point the wind is blowing his necktie. The camera then pulls back to focus on all the characters there. At that point his necktie is perfectly tucked into his pants. See more »


99: [Max has booked a trip to the Caribbean on a banana boat] A banana boat, is that safe?
Maxwell Smart: Well, this boat has an excellent safety record, 99. In 40 years it's only had one mishap. That's when it collided with a freighter carrying cornflakes.
99: But that's terrible!
Maxwell Smart: Not really, fortunately a sugar boat came along.
