S01E19. Bayou
Original Broadcast Date: 6 May 1989

Phelps is on a movie set where a stunt man is thrown through a window. After the assistant director (Darren Dubb) yells "Cut!", Phelps talks to him.

Phelps: Is it true that film production is on the rise in the Bay Area?

Director: You can't beat this city for a backdrop.

Phelps: Yeah, well, that'd be fine with me. I've been a movie buff ever since I was a kid.

Director: Well, if you like film history, there's a book in the prop cage you might find interesting.

Phelps goes to this cage where he finds the player. He takes it back into the set and places it on a table beside an old manual typewriter. The password is 681.

Good morning, Jim. This is Diane Martin, the 18-year-old daughter of a noted Houston industrialist. One week ago, she disappeared while spending a weekend in New Orleans. Her wealthy father believes she's been kidnapped and has been waiting for a ransom demand. That demand may never come. We believe she has fallen victim to this man -- Jake Morgan. Authorities think he is responsible for the disappearance of over 100 young women during the past two years, but they have yet to prove anything against him. We believe he is the main supplier for an international white slavery ring that sells women to the highest bidders in Asian and African countries. Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to rescue Diane Martin and prove that Morgan is in fact guilty, thereby ending his trade in human flesh forever. 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 player and leaves. Smoke billows from the player.
