Jaime assumes the duties of a social secretary to a Middle Eastern king in order to prevent his assassination during a visit to New York City.



Oscar: You'll be working with Mr. Sam Sloane, who's Chief of Protocol in the City of New York.
Jaime: Does this Mr. Sloane know I'm from the OSI? (Oscar shakes his head) Well, won't he guess?
Oscar: If I know Sam, he'll be busy admiring your legs.
Jaime: What, is he hung up on bionics?
Oscar: No, I'm the one who's hung up on bionics, remember?

Oscar: I have hard evidence that the local group of conspirators are tied in with the military group of Dapur and plan to take over the country when the King is dead. It's too dangerous!
Jaime: I can't quit now. Tonight is the reception for the King, and I've got to be with him. That's all there is to it.
Oscar: You're stubborn!
Jaime: Yes! And for once, you're right!

Jaime: Your Highness, may you only smile when you're happy, and may you smile often.

The King: If you are an example of the liberated woman, I highly regret the traditions in my country that makes such progress impossible.
Jaime: Well, I'm sure that Your Highness can find a way to make progress, and still keep the, uh, the best of your country's traditions.

Sam: Why is it so important to get you out of the way?
Jaime: Because I am not a social secretary. Sam, I'm an OSI agent.
Sam: You're a what?
Jaime: My assignment was to protect the king, and this secretary bit was just a cover.
Sam: OSI agent... now who's going to take care of the kids while you're out chasing villains?
Jaime: What kids?
Sam: Our kids, after we're married. (Jaime's jaw drops) Look baby, I... I like you. I worry about you. Couldn't you get into a safer job, like wing walking?


  • In this 3rd-to-last episode of the series, Jaime slows her runaway car by sticking her leg out and placing her foot on the pavement, a feat last seen in the very first episode, "Welcome Home, Jaime" and the subsequent toy car commercial.
  • John Reilly previously appeared as Hober in "Escape to Love."
  • The Biltmore hotel in downtown Los Angeles stands-in for the King's New York hotel.


  • Jaime destroys the first explosive with her right thumb but this pressure does not cause it to explode.
