Quotes

Grace Santiago: I keep forgetting about the hierarchy of McNamara/Troy, I keep imagining I'm apart of it.
Sean McNamara: You were brought aboard with the promise of parity.
Grace Santiago: What about respect? It's because I slept with Christian, isn't it? Suddenly I'm no longer a professional with credentials, I'm just his latest conquest.
Sean McNamara: I'm not here to pass judgement on your promiscuity.
Grace Santiago: Why don't you admit it Sean. You're operating out of repressed rage because I rejected you and slept with your partner.
Sean McNamara: Dr. Santiago, as a professional,...

Crazy Credits

The intro sequence is full of still figures, and a marker pen draws lines on the bodies, just as a plastic surgeon does when they're extrapolating the procedure. See more »

no wonder the networks are having such a tough time
26 September 2004 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

Competing with cable is a tough job for the big networks with shows like Nip/Tuck around. While the networks are busy giving us "The Bachelor," F/X is giving us a beautifully written, gorgeously acted show about plastic surgeons. I have to say that this season is even better than last, definitely a more intense experience for me, anyway. The Siamese twins episode, the stigmata episode, the custody episode, the blind woman episode were all outstanding. You never know what you're going to get from this show - sexually explicit talk, soft porn, gut-wrenching drama, humor - it keeps you on your toes. As a side note, the episode about the blind woman getting the eye implants was remarkable for its accuracy. I have experience in the prosthetics field and it was right on, 100%. Very interesting to watch. I really love this show, in case no one noticed.

Some trivia - one of the producers is Lyn Greene, who starred in her own series in the '70s, "On Our Own" and later played the young Dorothy on "The Golden Girls" in several episodes. Bravo, Ms. Greene, you are a multitalented and remarkable woman.
