Leadside

Wheelchair bound mastermind Leadside is caught in a robbery by Max and announces a three-part plan. Phase one, he will escape from Max. Phase two, he will destroy CONTROL. Phase three, he will kill Maxwell Smart. After Leadside follows through on Phases One and Two, Max holes up in his apartment, vowing "Leadside will only complete Phase Three over my dead body." This is one of my favorite episodes and Ronald Long is brilliant as Leadside. "My mother gave me Norman." The wheelchair in the back of the truck bit is still side-splittingly funny.
