"Fires of Hell" "Carnival of Spies"


After several foreign amateur athletes defect to the United States, Steve goes undercover as an American amateur boxing champ to infiltrate a suspected assassination team made up of the alien expatriates. While training for the bout, Steve notices that four of the foreign boxers can lift and move more than four thousand pounds together. And, using OSI computers, he and Oscar Goldman are able to pinpoint the team's real target, but not before Steve is drugged and nearly killed.


Boris: Hey what are you trying to pull off? He's not even a heavyweight. He'll get himself killed.
Steve: For your sake I'll try and stay alive.

Lena: If he fights only half as good as he looks, you've got a winner at the box office.

Lena: Steve, tell me something. Who are you really?
Steve: Steve Miller, America's number two-ranked amateur heavyweight.
Lena: You're good, but boxing is not your profession.
Steve: Well if it isn't, I'm going to be in a lot of trouble in that ring.

Lena: If he's a heavyweight boxer you're Marlon Brando.

Ambulance Man: He's still out. We close to the river yet?
Ambulance Driver: We'll be there in about five minutes.
Ambulance Man: And the deep six for Mr. America here.

Oscar: Boris, what's next?
Boris: Arm wrestling, international championship. [to Steve] Would you like to enter?
Steve: Oh no, Boris, that's a little out of my league, but thanks for asking.


  • This episode is one of the few times Steve is shown wearing a suit, consisting of a jacket, vest, pants, shirt and tie, during the briefing with Oscar & a different one at dinner with Lena.


  • As Steve races away in the ambulance, palm trees are visible in the background. The story is set in Washington, D.C.
  • When Steve hands the weight to Mason he holds the weight palm side down. In the next shot when Mason grabs it, Steve is holding the weight palm side up.
  • The infiltrators send a gymnast through the vents to unlock the blue double doors from the inside because if they are opened from the outside, it will set off the alarm. When Steve shows up and kicks in the doors from the outside, no alarm goes off.
  • When Steve jumps out of the ambulance and hits the bad guys with his left arm, we hear the bionic sounds.
