S01E13. The Fixer
Original Broadcast Date: 25 February 1989
Phelps comes out of a building and talks to a newspaper vendor (Paul Paye) who has a stand in front of the place.
Phelps: Do you have a copy of yesterday's Ukiah Enterprise?
Vendor: You're in luck, my friend. It's my hometown.
Phelps: Small world.
Phelps takes the newspaper to what looks like a loading dock. The player is wrapped up inside the paper. The password is 681 or 684.
Good morning, Jim. This is Washington columnist Arthur Six. His career as a highly successful columnist and broadcaster has given him information which he uses to intimidate, blackmail and bribe. Some of the most powerful people in business, government and the law are in his pocket. Senator Tom Oxenford is his main adversary. Oxenford has initiated congressional hearings. He wants Six indicted by a grand jury on charges that Six is part of a conspiracy which has defrauded the government out of more than $500 million. Your mission, Jim, should you choose to accept it, is to find and neutralize Six's secret files, and make certain he is indicted. As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This disc will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.
Phelps closes the recorder and leaves it on the dock. Smoke billows from it.
