Oscar's secretary Peggy Callahan (Jennifer Darling) gushes about her new boyfriend John (Michael Callan) and his hair salon. Jaime goes to the hair salon with her, only to overhear Peggy spilling classified secrets to John. Oscar fires Peggy, who insists that she's innocent. A suspicious Jaime investigates the hair salon and discovers that John is mixing a hypnotic 'truth serum' compound into his shampoo to force his clients, all secretaries and wives of important government officials, to pass along all sorts of valuable secrets.
