  • Episode Description
  • Sister Bertrille arrives at Convent San Tanco in Puerto Rico, where the constant swirling winds around the convent give her the power to fly. This news is greeted with alarm by the strict Mother Superior, and with curiosity and amusement by her fellow nuns Sister Jacqueline, who becomes Sister Bertrille's mentor, and Sister Sixto, a nun who continually fights a losing battle with the English language. While in Puerto Rico she also meets Carlos Ramirez, a wealthy playboy bachelor.moreless

    • Vito Scotti played the role of Captain Domenic Lopez in this pilot episode but for the rest of the series he played Captain Fomento.

    • The first episode has a different opening sequence than the rest of the series. It comes after an introduction instead of coming at the very beginning, the music is a little slower and less lively, and it shows Sister Bertrille, Sister Sixto and Sister Jaqueline walking to the convent instead of showing Sister Bertrille flying.

    • The first episode is actually an hour long instead of the typical half-hour.

    • The series, and particularly this two-part episode, was based on the book The Fifteenth Pelican by Tere RĂ­os.
