Episode Summary

Jill Munroe receives an urgent cablegram summoning her home, only to discover it was a ruse to flush out Formula One car designer Paul Ferrino. To protect his new turbo-charged racer from saboteurs, Ferrino asks Jill to drive it in the Grand Prix, hoping that a victory will bring needed research funds. The Angels begin some high-gear sleuthing when a mysterious car explosion kills Jill's fiance and she becomes the next target.moreless

  • Ferrino's RaceCar and Jill chosen as the Driver for the Grand Prix

    This episode incorporated sleuth investigation by the Angels to get to the facts of the case. Also, sentimental parts when Jill's fiance, Steve was killed by the Ferrino RaceCar exploding while he was driving a test run before Jill raced the car.

    Ferrino's plan all the time was to plant explosives in the racecar because his turbo fuel invention was not original and would be a poor investment. He figured that if the explosion happened at the Grand Prix it would look accidental or an outside job. He thought this would give him a chance to start over again.

    It was a treat to see Jill back with her former coworkers and her kid sister Kris. The writers showed the closeness, togetherness, and determination the Angels, Charlie, and Bosely have for Jill.moreless
  • Jill comes home but not interesting things happen. A silly storyline and not an interesting episode.

    Jill comes home and meet her sister, Sabrina, Kelly and Bosley but nothing interesting really happens. The storyline is quite silly with a story about a Formula One car designer who asks Jill to drive his last car, a vehicle which kills Jill's fiance.

    I thought Jill was going to spend more time with the Angels and Bosley but this doesn't happen, so I felt very disappointed about this episode, probably one of the worst of the series I've seen. They could have done a better story to bring Jill back and inlude her in a case, but instead of that they did a boring episode.moreless

    • Kelly: We've got another eye witness. Andrea Lassiter.
      Danny: What's that mean?

      Sabrina: Just depends who gets to the D.A. first.

    • Charlie: Kris, I have your assignment. Stick with Jill night and day.

    • Steve: Wait a minute. Don't tell me, don't tell me 'cause I've heard all about you two. Uh, (walking over to Sabrina and Kelly who look at each other) Kelly? (pointing with his hands at Kelly)

      Sabrina: Heard all about us, huh? Well I don't know if I like that.
      Kelly: I hope she didn't tell you everything.

      Sabrina: Precisely.

    • Kris: (chasing after Jill who left with Paul Farrino on his motorcycle) Is she out of her mind?

      Kelly: She sure didn't.

    • Jill: Come on. I'll be in a public parking lot surrounded by all my friends. The only danger will be the exhaust fumes.

      Kris: What.
      Jill: What do you mean "What?" (pulling out and unfolding a piece of paper) The cable you sent.
      Kris: I didn't. (holding onto the cable gram)
      Jill: (reading cable gram) "TOP URGENT. COME BACK. MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH."

(Sabrina shooting at the range and Kelly flipping a guy)....the other in San Francisco. (Kris maneuvering through cones) And they were each assigned very hazardous duties, (Sabrina giving a parking ticket, Kelly at the school crosswalk and Kris at the operation board) but I took them all away from that (Sabrina and Kelly come out of the Police Department and Kris comes in from the left and joins them) and now they work for me. My name is Charlie.

    • Farrah Fawcett justified her decision to leave Charlie's Angels in 1977 on a technicality: she was under no obligation to continue with the show beyond the first season because she never signed her contract. After Aaron Spelling took the matter to court in 1978, a judge ruled that because Fawcett was paid, $5000 per episode, the contract was implied and therefore enforceable. Fawcett settled out of court; as part of the compromise, she agreed to appear in six episodes of Angels over two seasons

    • This is Farrah Fawcett's 1st guest starring appearance as Jill Munroe in her contractually-obligated returns. The majority of her scenes are interactions between Jill and younger sister, Kris.
