Taylor, the governor's aide, may be cold?hearted in his politics, but he's as vulnerable as any man when dumped by a woman he loves. Recently, a lady named Betty Green has romped through Taylor's life, leaving devastation in her wake -- and possibly something even worse. Benson is the first to discover electronic microphones hidden all over the gubernatorial mansion. He quickly realizes the danger to Gatling, who is outspoken and feels that he has nothing to hide. Benson, nominally the butler, but in fact the brains of the household, points out that a clever blackmailer will record everything that's said, then edit the tape selectively so that it sounds incriminating. Benson's wily scheme to expose the culprits begins with a script detailing an episode of blatant corruption, with huge payoffs openly discussed as if this was an everyday affair for the governor and his official family. Meanwhile, Katie, the governor's precocious daughter has a secret of her own. A boy has a crush on her and is writing her love notes in crayon. Later, while Katie writes a "Dear John" letter of renunciation to her admirer, Benson, Taylor, the Governor and Kraus, the cook, read from Benson's script into one of the hidden microphones. The blackmailer, Harwell, quickly surfaces and is nabbed. A copy of the script has already been sent to the Attorney General, so the evidence is air?tight. Taylor is rueful as Sgt. Gordon says that Betty Green will also go to jail. As for Katie, her romance also ends on a sour note. It seems her admirer sent love notes to all the girls in school. © 1980 Witt/Thomas/Harris Productions. All Rights Reserved.
