Episode Summary

L.A. Tornadoes roller derby skating champ, Karen Jason, is killed after being forced over the guardrail and into the audience during a rough and tumble race. Charlie's client, Karen's sister Barbara, believes Karen was murdered, despite the police report stating that the death was accidental.
In search of clues, Sabrina poses as a state insurance investigator, Kelly as a pushy writer for a ''Playgirl''-like magazine and Jill, impersonating Barbara, as a member of the roller derby team.

  • Roller Derby Angel

    Each Angel's undercover brought them closer to pinpointing who were responsible for Espisito's and Karen's death. This episode kept me entertained. Kelly's car blowing up, her car crashing after her brake fluid tube was spliced. Also, Jill in the line of fire when one of the roller derby player was going to attempt to kill Jill. This exposed the whole gang of insurance fraud accompliances. Police arrived on scene and arrested them.moreless

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Bad Betty: Okay, sweet cheeks, let's go with the whip. (Reaching her arm back.)
      Jill: Take your best shot.

    • Jill: Just tell Charlie I want a simple funeral. You know, no frills, no fuss and then I want to be cremated and have my ashes scattered over Charlie's water bed.

    • Charlie: (As Kelly runs away from her car.) The suitcase Angel! The suitcase. (Kelly runs back to her car, grabs the suitcase and gets a couple feet away as her car blows up)

    • Kelly: (Speaking to Bosley on the phone about Red Loomis) He was one of those muscle-bound types who look like they could lift a ton, but can't spell it.

    • Kelly: Well, I'll call first, muscles. (Walking along side Red Loomis outside of Karen Jason's apartment complex.) So you have time to put on a shirt.

    • Red Loomis: Hey wait a minute. Women's View Magazine-- Isn't that the magazine with the male centerfold in it?
      Kelly: That's us. Hold that pose. (Getting up and walking around looking at Red's body) Oh, boy. What's your name?
      Red: Red Loomis.
      Kelly: You know, Red, I think you'd make a great stud-of-the-month. You make Burt Reynolds look like one of the Seven Dwarfs.
      Red: Forget it. You know, you Gloria Steinem type broads turn me off. Just because a guy's put together right, you think he doesn't have a brain in his head. (Walking over and sitting down) You know, I get real tired of being looked at like nothing but a sex object, you know?

    • Jeremy: (Walking towards the door.) Miss Farmer. You have a college education and I'm stuck on 5-letter word for heavenly creature.
      Miss Farmer: Try "Angel."
      Jeremy: "Angel."

    • (Talking with Sabrina.)
      Jill: I bet that's how Joe Namath feels after 3rd and long.

    • Kelly: You know, Red, I think you'd make a great stud-of-the-month. You make Burt Reynolds look like one of the Seven Dwarfs.

      The Seven Dwarfs refers to the dwarfs who took in Snow White after she left her evil step-mother in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
