    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • (After a practice knife throw with Helmut)
        Bosley: Wow, you look white as a sheet!
        Kris: He just scared two months off my suntan.

      • David: Anyone ever tell you, that you're too pretty to be a detective?
        Sabrina: Too pretty to be a detective. Yeah, I think somebody did. It was my ex-husband.

      • Tinkle Belle: Hi cutie!
        Bosley: Hello.
        Tinkle Belle: Gotta name?
        Bosley: Bosley! John Bosley.
        Tinkle Belle: "Bosley! John Bosley." Nice ring to it. Married?
        Bosley: Not lately.
        Tinkle Belle: Me neither. Oh I'm Tinkle Belle.
        Bosley: Tinkle Belle.
        Tinkle Belle: Oh, I love the way it sounds when you say it, Bosley! John Bosley.
        Bosley: Uh, look. It's just Bosley! John Bosley.
        Tinkle Belle: That's what I said, Bosley! John Bosley.
        Bosley: Uh huh.
        Tinkle Belle: See you around Big Boy. Don't forget Tinkle Belle.
        Bosley: Say hello to Peter Pan.

      • Yanos: You still want the job! (Referring to the knife throwing act)
        Kris: Well, yeah. I'd like to make one phone call first. I'd like to call my mom. She might be able to collect double indemnity if I come out of this with a split personality.

      • (As Bosley and Kelly pull up)
        Reed: All right lady. Move it.
        Kelly: (Sticking her head out the window) You move it, turkey! We were here first.
        Bosley: Maybe we should, uh, move it.
        Kelly: He thinks he can push me around just because I'm a woman. No way.
        Reed: Look lady. You'd better back off before I break your boyfriends legs.
        Kelly: You think he's afraid of you?
        Bosley: As a matter of fact.
        (Reed gets out of his truck)
        Kelly: What do you think we should do now?
        Bosley: I think you should scream. As a matter of fact, if you don't, I will.

    • NOTES (1)

      • "Circus of Terror" was the first episode of the season filmed with new cast member Cheryl Ladd. It was decided that filming this episode would help break the ice between Jackson & Smith and their new co-star before filming the season premier "Angels in Paradise" on location in Hawaii. Interestingly, the opening scene in the office shows "Sabrina" and "Kelly" playing a board game, subliminally excluding "Kris". Ladd has some nice moments, especially with David Doyle, with the warmth he extended her off-camera clearly showing onscreen as well.
