|Jaime's Shield (Part II)|
Jaime enrolls as a police academy cadet to locate a foreign agent. However, she is unaware that the agent has spotted her first and has ordered her execution.
Welton: Going a little fast back there, weren't you, ma'm?
Jaime: Was I speeding?
Welton: Flying low was more like it.
Jaime: Cops can be so pompous sometimes, and this guy was so cold.
Oscar: Jaime... you mean you were stopped by a police officer and given a ticket?
Jaime: Yeah! Ten bucks. He said I was speeding.
Commissioner Hart: Were you, Miss Sommers?
Jaime: Well, two, three miles an hour, five at the absolute outside, but I was...
Oscar: Jaime, I'd like to introduce you to Commissioner Hart of the Santa Regina Police Department.
Jaime: (cringes) Really? Oh...
Godfrey: If those had been real bullets you would be well on your way to St. Peter's pearlies now or worse. You got a lot to learn.
(Jaime listens bionically)
Welton: Now, you see this skinny blonde over there, about to start? Lay you ten bucks she doesn't make it to the finish line.
Godfrey: Alright you got a deal. You got a deal.
Jaime: Okay, Officer Welton. Here's where I get even for that traffic ticket.
(finishes the obstacle course in record time, then trots over to Welton and Godfrey)
Godfrey: Hate to take your money, Bob, but that's one of the fastest times today.
Welton: Mmmm-hmmm. There you go.
Jaime: Ten bucks for ten bucks.
Welton: Ten bucks for...? How'd she know about that?
Godfrey: Y'know, I think these women are gonna surprise us.
Partnow: You know it's amazing the way you can fall in and out of that American accent, like you were born here.
Parker: It took years of training, Partnow.
Welton: Well, your sloppy driving just killed a mother and her two children back there at the turn. I hope you're proud of yourself.
Jaime: Get off it, will you? You were riding me all the way.
Welton: Riding you? If you can't take the pressure in a parking lot, babe, you better forget the street.
Partnow: How'd she do?
Welton: Not too hot. She missed the last four turns and didn't like my tone of voice.
(Jaime watches Smith walk away).
Parker: (leaning in car window) Hey, Jaime? Don't feel so bad. I killed four old ladies, seven kids and an alleycat on my last run. (Jaime laughs) So, come on, chin up! Okay?
Oscar: (yawning) Jaime, I had the night team run another check. You were right. The name on the file is Arleen Smith, but the fingerprints tell us that it's Arleen Hart.
Jaime: The police commissioner's daughter.
Arleen: Told ya.
Jaime: (aside) I'm glad. (into phone) Okay, Oscar, looks like we're back on first base again. I'll just have to call you tomorrow.
Oscar: At a reasonable time, please.
Jaime: Hey, being reasonable is not in my contract.
Jaime: The forged files? How'd you do that?
Arleen: Oh... I got a few friends in the records department to help me out. Matter of fact, they even pulled my file when someone was investigating them before classes started. I thought it was my father.
Jaime: It wasn't. That was Oscar. And all these midnight walks, they were for, uh...
Jaime: Munchies. Terrific. (beat) Arlene, I am sorry if I've upset you.
'Arleen: No... hey, listen... call me Arly, and it's okay. (threatens Jaime with a drumstick) ... but if you even breathe a word of this to my father...
Jaime: (backing up) Promise!
Arleen: Now, are you going to tell me what you're doing here and who this Oscar is?
Jaime: (grabs the drumstick) On the way back to the dorm. (takes a bite) You muncho.
Jaime: Now, you may not believe this, but there's a foreign agent at the academy.
Arleen: A foreign agent? What does that make you - a domestic one?
Jaime: Very good! OSI.
Jaime: Arly, this thing could get really dangerous. I don't know if Oscar will let me do something...
Arleen: Look, if I could just help you solve this thing, it'd prove to my dad I'd make a good cop. I mean, he'd have to believe in me. Please, Jaime...
Jaime: (after a long pause) I think if I said "no," it wouldn't make any difference anyway.
Arleen: You're right.(Jaime laughs)
(Jaime and Arleen are discussing possible suspects)
Arleen: My money's on Kelly. Did you ever notice that mood ring she wears? It's always black.
Jaime: (laughing) Oh, come on. Listen, what about the nights you snuck out?
Arleen: I was hungry!
Jaime: Well, that's the story of your life, but, I mean, did you see anything strange or unusual or out of place while you were there?
Arleen: (shakes her head, then realization dawns) Wait a sec. I did see a delivery truck a couple of times. (Jaime ponders this) Yeah, I thought it was kinda funny delivering something that late at night.
Jaime: A delivery truck. Ummm... I saw it too. It was a red one?
Arleen: Yeah, red. It was a late model... ummm... one ton step van. I think the license was U... uh... 99-566. Yeah, something like that. Thought it was kinda strange.
Jaime: I think you're kinda strange.
- In addition to continuing her role as Arleen Smith/Arleen Hart in "Jaime's Shield (Part II)", Diane Civita also appears as Mrs. Frank Boylin in the third season episode "Rancho Outcast".
- This is the second "bionic undercover cop" story to air in 1976, the other being "The Bionic Badge" on SMDM.
- The warehouse where Jaime is tied up is the same location where the atomic bomb was being assembled in the Six Million Dollar Man episode "The Bionic Badge".
- Once again, Jaime's professional tennis career seems to be long gone, as nobody at the police academy recognizes her.
After Jaime completes the driver's course, Sgt. Welton makes a remark about pressure. As a top five ranked tennis player, Jaime has probably faced a little pressure before.
