Episode Summary

An innocent woman is murdered after she identifies an escaped convict aboard a luxury liner. The Angels are assigned to infiltrate the ship and discover the ring that assists criminals in escaping the country.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Angels All Aboard

    The Angels are assigned a case because of Ms. Blake's death aboard a ship. Sabrina is undercover as a criminal trying to escape to another country, Kelly is the Activities Coordinator, Kris and Bosely are guests on the cruise liner.

    Definitely, a lot of suspenseful scenes when Kelly is trapped by flames in the boiler room and the Angels and Bosely attempting to identify the criminals, especially during a masquerade party.

    Sabrina, Kris, and Bosely knew time was the essence because Kelly was missing.

    The criminals were attempting to drown Kelly in the pool and make it look like an accident. However, the Angels and Bosely came to the rescue and apprehended the suspects.

    Bosely even found out his date on the ship was a criminal trying to flee the country. She killed four husbands.

    At the end of the episode it was nice to see the Angels console Bosely and take him out to dinnermoreless
  • a very funny episode!

    this episode is one of my favorite episodes of the whole series! It is also one of the funniest to me! My favorite part was watching Sabrina in a clown costume! I love the last part where finally cat all the bad guys! I have the dvd version and I enjoy watching this episode from time to time! I love the episodes when they go undercover!

    Sabrina: I guess you got me confused with someone else! Hi!

    Sabrina: How do you know she's working alone? How do you know there's not someone working with her? All in all it was a great episode!moreless
  • A very entertaining episode.

    In the episode that goes before this one, Charlie says to the Angels that they deserve a cruise after having solved a difficult case. Well, I suppose the writer had this episode in mind when he wrote that line in the script.

    This is not the first time that the Angels have to solv a murder in a cruise, in the first season there was an episode called "Angels at Sea" but this is much better than that.

    The Angels go undercover and surprisingly Sabrina undercovers as a criminal, Charlie said they needed someone tough and Kelly, Kris and Bosley looked at her. I particularly love that scene.

    This time is Kelly the Angel who is trying to be killed, and not for once or twice but three times. And everything is solved thanks to a masquerade. By the way, Kate Jackson's clown costume is brilliant.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: Notice when Kelly hands Kris a note that says: "Lisa Blake didn't fall overboard by accident. Boiler Room - 9 o'clock."

      Kris reads aloud "Lisa Blake did not fall overboard accidentally. Boiler Room - 9 o'clock."

      This might not have been so obvious if Kris' voice when reading the note aloud hadn't been dubbed over on the close-up shot of her holding the note.

    • Goof: Notice when Kris goes into Mark's cabin, her staff hook is facing to the right but when the close-ups are shown, the staff is facing to the left.

    • Sabrina goes undercover as Sabrina Lampone, who has an uncle Vito.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Activities Director: What did you want me for anyway?
      Bosley: (With a coy smile and a wink) Would you like to see my buried treasure?
      Activities Director: (annoyed) No wonder she quit!

    • Sabrina: Look, Leo. I'm paying you a lot of money to get away from the law and you're gonna put me in the middle of a murder case.

    • Bosley: The problem is somebody's trying to kill Kelly and we've got to break this thing open and fast.
      Sabrina: Yeah. Bosley's right. And I think maybe it's up to me.
      Kelly: What are you gonna do?
      Sabrina: Well, stir up a little trouble and see what happens.

    • Kelly: You shouldn't have any trouble meeting people.

      Kris: Forget the Queen, honey. (Touching his lapels) Where's the King?

    • Kris: (About Kelly, whose working out) She'll also have shoulders like Joan Crawford if she keeps this up.
      Kelly: That was the dress.

    • Sabrina: Hey, look. I traveled 3,000 miles to talk to you. I've been sleepin' in barns and eatin' bananas. Now you gotta listen to me.

    • Bosley: So we'll all need to have a cover. But one of you will have to be a wanted criminal... tough, streetwise and capable of anything.

      Sabrina: Wait a minute! Why are you looking at me?

    • Charlie: You're assignment is to find out who is running the operation and to break it up.

  • NOTES (1)


    • Mark: Euterpe.
      Kris: I what.
      Mark: Euterpe. She was one of the nine muses. Goddess of music and lyric poetry.

      This is in reference to Euterpe who was one of the nine Muses of Apollo from the Greek culture. Her name meant rejoicing well or delight. She was the goddess of memory, the Muse of music, lyric poetry, joy and pleasure and of flute playing.
