Quotes

John Bosley: Charlie, I, eh, have quite a wrap sheet, here on Mr. Harley Dexter. It appears that he's working with the Eastern Syndicate. He's a man of... two passions. Swindling is one, I'll give you the traditional three guesses as to the other.
Kris Munroe: Charlie, do you suppose that Tiffany, Kelly or myself will qualify for Mr. Dexter's other passion?
Charles Townsend: [Over speakerphone] My dears, why ever do you think we're in this business?

Angels Deal With Con Artists
26 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When three unsuspecting investors are taken by racketeer Harley Dexter,Kelly,Kris and Tiffany try to outsmart outsmart a conman for revenge for three separate clients with three ingenious cons involving Mexican artifacts, a broken down Rolls-Royce, and political graft in Three For The Money.

Mike Lloyd interrupts a meeting between Harley Dexter and his mafia associates and threatens to report him to Sen. Ted Langston, the man investigating him for his illegal business dealings. Lloyd lost $65,000- in one of Dexter's phony deals. Dexter's associate, Gibel, beats up Lloyd and throws him in an alley. The Angels set up a complex con game in the hopes of recovering funds that Dexter stole from three individuals: Lloyd; Prof. Joan McKendrick,who lost $75,000; and Mrs. Pattison,who lost $100,000. Tiffany poses as an aide to Sen. Langston and assures Dexter that her employer is willing to "negotiate" a price for his freedom, despite the comments he might make about him in public. Prof. McKendrick approaches Dexter and asks him to go in on the purchase of some stolen Mayan art treasures. He has them authenticated by an expert, unaware that it is actually Bosley. Their country bumpkin dealer happens to be an undercover Kelly,who presses them to make payment that same day.That makes him to use mobster De Sousa's money, which he plans to replace before the debt is called in. Dexter secretly approaches Kelly with a plan to cut Prof. McKendrick out of the deal. He claims to have been assaulted and robbed en route to the exchange site, and is unaware that the professor has returned home with her $75,000. Kris and Lloyd buy a run-down Rolls Royce and fix it up to resemble Dexter's car. She pretends to have broken down on the highway, and Dexter comes to her aid. He has the car towed and asks her to be his house guest while she is supposedly in town for a high school reunion. Tiffany puts a potato in his tail pipe so that his car will not start, and it also has to be taken in for repairs. De Sousa's men approach Dexter and demand money, as they have grown concerned by Sen. Langston's decision to freeze Dexter's account. Dexter offers them partial payment in the form of some cash that is stashed in the upholstery of his car. He decides to turn over the Mayan statues as collateral for the rest of the debt. While Gibel is on the phone with Dexter, the Angels and company switch the cars. Gibel inadvertently tears Kris's car apart. She claims that she cannot wait for repairs because she needs the car for her reunion. After removing the money from his Rolls, Dexter writes up a bill of sale switching ownership of the cars. Lloyd plans to sell the vehicle to recoup his earlier losses; Bosley explains that they couldn't have simply kept the money in the car because it belonged to De Sousa. Kelly shows up at the house to take Dexter up on his earlier job offer. She and Kris pretend to be shocked to see each other, and run off in a huff. Tiffany slips into Dexter's study and tells him that Langston is willing to let him off the hook for $100,000. He reluctantly turns over his "getaway fund."

This is an interesting episode as we get to see how the Angels uses intelligence and connivance into gaining the stolen money and items instead of beauty and charm for a change.Also,we get to see how our heroines work as a team just like in the earlier episodes of the show especially in the first season.
