  • Angels in Sin City

    Angels in Vegas Part 1 began with the Angels and Bosely settling into their undercover positions. Kelly became a dancer, Kris a singer for Marty Cole, Sabrina an Executive Associate for Mr. Howell, and Bosely a doorman.

    There are several potential suspects, Mr Hanes from the Dunes Hotel, Joey January, Marty Cole, and a unidentifed Driver in a Black Truck.

    Me Howell close friends and acquaintances have been killed, Ms Phillips and Howell close friend.

    The last 5 minutes of this episode Mr Cole is in the Hospital administering a medicine in Mr Howell Close friend's IV. This leaves me thinking why are the suspects killing Mr. Howell's friends and family. It appears that the suspects are trying to attack Mr Howell at the business and emotional level. Can not wait to watch Part 2.moreless
  • A two-hour episode with some well known guest stars as Dean Martin or Dick Sergeant in which the Angels have to solve some murders related to the character of Martin, who plays he owner of Tropicana Casino in Las vegas.moreless

    If the first part of this two-hour episode tells us the facts, in this second part real action starts with boat chases, shootings and the discovery of who is the killer.

    With no many clues and the death of Frank's, the character played by Dean Martin, best friend Sabrina decides to take Frank to the lake and someone shot them. After an exciting boat chase, Sabrina and Kris have the bad guy aboard without knowing, Kris determines that the man who did shot didn't want to hurt Frank but Sabrina so being in love with her, Frank doesn't want her to be hurt and fires the Angels. This is again a series classic, Sabrina in love with the guy. But Charlie's Angels don't quit as easy as Kelly well said and in the end, with another exciting shooting when we see the bravery of Kris and the good aim of Sabrina the case is solved and the Angels go back home. A very good beginning for the third season with an interesting story, a good screenplay and classic moments.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Goof: When Sabrina, Frank, Kris and Marty are in the speed boat chasing after the shooters, notice that when Marty turns off the fuel tank selector valve, he turns it from the empty starboard tank to the full port tank. When Sabrina asks "What is the thing," the gauge is in the correct position but when Frank comes over, he changes it from the full to empty tank.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Sabrina: (getting out of car) Tell me something. Do casino owners gamble?
      Frank: You mean, do I?
      Sabrina: Yep, that's exactly what I mean.
      Frank: Well, I won this place in a crap game.
      Sabrina: Love a client with a sense of humor.

    • Frank: (to Prof. Perkins) One more pass for all of it. Everything on the table. The hotel. If you win, it's all yours. You lose, it's all mine.

    • Mark Haines: (after introducing himself) I run the casino up the street.
      Sabrina: Oh, what'd you do. Come over to borrow a cup of money?

    • Kelly: Mr. Slocum. As you can see, this is a revolver I'm pointing at you. We both know that Marty Cole has taken our friend Kris somewhere. (Bosley pats Slocum) We're very concerned. (Sabrina comes walking up) So concerned that if you don't take us to her, I'll use this. There'll be no discussion on the matter. You'll either do as your told or you've seen your last dice game. Do you understand?

    • Frank: I want you out of town.
      Sabrina: Wait a minute, Frank. We can't quit now.
      Frank: You can quit if I tell you. I don't want you to get hurt. I don't want anybody to get hurt.
      Kelly: Frank, we don't give up that easily.
      Frank: You're not giving up. (standing up from the footstool) I'm firing you. All of you.
