Anatomy of a Lover

Get Smart 1966

Anatomy of a Lover - broadcast September 19, 1966. Directed by Bruce Bilson

Hymie the robot (played by Richard Gautier) is hacked by the criminal organization KAOS and is programmed to start killing CONTROL agents. He is prevented from strangling the CONTROL chief (Edward Platt) and Maxwell Smart (Don Adams) sneaks Hymie from CONTROL headquarters after he is ordered to disassemble his robot friend to prevent any further attacks. Unfortunately, fixing Hymie proves elusive, meanwhile Hymie starts cleaning Max's apartment and acting as a scold over the lack of hygiene and orderliness in the place.

Back at CONTROL, Max has to cover for his ruse of hiding Hymie by pretending to rebuild the robot from an old laundry machine that never quite looks right however much he rearranges the parts (even putting a hat on top to try and convince the Chief he is looking at Hymie.... it actually looks nothing like Hymie).

Barbara Feldon is on hand as Agent 99 and Laurel Goodwin appears as the Chief's daughter Phoebe (who is starting to fall in love with Hymie). Script for this Get Smart episode is by Gary Clarke with Buck Henry editing.
