CONTROL's budget is slashed by Congress, resulting in a limit on the number of bullets which can be used and reducing Maxwell Smart from brass knuckles to a single aluminum knuckle. In an attempt to prove that CONTROL serves a useful purpose, Max pretends to defect to KAOS in order to discover an infiltrator high in the US government.
