When Barbara blows up the Lincoln in an early scene, two different Lincoln's are used. A similar but battered white Lincoln is substituted in for the brand new one and blown up. The second Lincoln has rear fender skirts, yellowish stains (possibly explosive smeared all over it?) and a detonator cord attached to the right rear bumper See more »


Kelly Garrett: The woman, do you know who she is?
Angela: [sighs] Well, she was a patient, some time ago. For a long while I thought that's just what it was: a fascination, a pride in what he'd accomplished. You see, she, eh, she is truly beautiful.
Kelly Garrett: Mrs. Redmont, have you taken a look in the mirror lately?
Angela: But it's different, don't you see? He did it. He created her. She was everything. The crystallization of his work, his sense of beauty. Her face came to life at his fingertips. I can't compete with that.

Tiffany As A Nurse
26 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a congressional witness is found dead, Kelly,Kris and Tiffany investigate a plastic surgeon's association with a racketeer whom they learn wants surgery to change his identity in Nips And Tucks.

Renowned surgeon Paul Redmont receives a phone call from his mistress, Barbara Brown, advising him to "lose" the file of former patient Tom Ford. Moments later, Ford is killed by a car bomb. Ford was a crooked accountant who had recently agreed to testify before a committee headed by Sen. Thompson. The senator asks the Kelly,Kris and Tiffany to investigate. They discover that Bill Maddox, an unscrupulous financier, has returned to the country under an assumed name and plans to undergo plastic surgery at Dr. Redmont's clinic. Tiffany poses as a nurse at a plastic surgeon's clinic after receiving a tip that a wanted convict has checked in to get a new face.Kelly works on the case from the outside, while Bosley checks into the clinic for a consultation, and Kris poses as his vain, socialite wife.

Tiffany befriends Julie, a young woman who is terrified that her operation did not remove the scar from her face. Bosley checks in as a potential patient, with Kris as his demanding high-society wife. Barbara tries to goad Paul into performing the surgery on Maddox by claiming that he murdered Ford and has threatened her. She had apparently convinced him to operate on Ford years earlier by claiming that he had harmed her during her modeling days and would do so again unless Paul cooperated.

This is another episode that has Tiffany as the central character.Many of her fans would surely delight in it considering that the show's writers had to write her out after the season.In it,we see her as someone as being smart, competent, compassionate, funny and even tough just like her replacement,Julie Rogers next season especially when he went undercover as a Nurse.Too bad that this is the first and last season we get to see Shelley Hack in Charlie's Angels.Besides Tiffany,we also get a preview of the attitude towards plastic surgery in the years to come.
