Climatic fight between Solo and his double in The Double Affair. Immediately after the double is killed and the camera zooms in on Solo, Stevens uses an arrangement of the Man From U.N.C.L.E. theme that sounds very similar to the Hawaii Five-O theme he would compose four years later.

Other episodes that could be mined for a soundtrack: The Concerte Overcoat Affair (not that good but it is Nelson Riddle), The Her Master's Voice Affair (probably that best Fried work in Season Three where his work really dipped in quality), The Fiddlesticks Affair (Schifrin's compositions sound simiar to what he had composed for Mission: Impossible) and The Yellow Scarf Affair.
