  • A dancer named Eve switches between a father and son for sexual manipulations.

    10
    This is one of those episodes that barely snuck its way through the censors back in 1994. It contains perhaps the most intense sex scenes of any other episode. The vixen in this episode is Raquel Gardner, who would go on to star in the episodes The Babysitter and Dead Again...And Again in later seasons. The two sex scenes were later severely edited and can now be seen in their entireties on DVD. This is not an episode I would be comfortable watching with my mother in the room, put it that way. It was given a TV-14 SV rating once the ratings board got around but it definitely should have been rated TV-MA. Like many other episodes, it contains a close \"posterior\" shot of the woman in the teaser/prologue wearing a skimpy red thong (which was subsequently cut out). The episode is heavy with sexual innuendo and sexual sounds (i.e., moaning, panting) and a quick transition between the girl and guy kissing outside to him once again straddling him on a huge bed. It\'s ridiculous to think that any male viewer, after these two long intense sex scenes, is going to be interested in finishing up the episode, especially when the woman is killed.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (10)

    • goof: In the first sex scene, there is nothing above the bedstand with the lamp on it. In the second sex scene, there is a wall outlet above the bedstand.

    • Goof: We can see a microphone above the bed.

    • Right before Junior walks in on Eve and Roland having sex, as he is walking down the hall, you hear what sounds like an off-camera cough by one of the crew members. Junior couldn't have coughed because he is drinking a glass of liquor as he walks down the hall.

    • During the opening scene of this incident, after Junior angrily gets up from the table after arguing with his father Roland, the camera centers again on the table. Behind the table, you can see a stage light through the curtains; a few seconds later, the stage light dims.

    • After the second sex scene, when Eve is removing the handcuffs from the bed-rails and Roland's wrists, you see both of Eve's arms. But in a very quick shot, you see a third arm/hand come to her assistance. Obviously she is alone in the room at this point. The extra person helping Raquel Gardner (the actress playing Eve) is probably a crew member helping her take the handcuffs off as quickly as possible for the scene to go as planned.

    • Continuity problem: In the opening part of the episode (after the theme music plays), we see a woman with short reddish-brunette hair in a black, two-piece bathing suit walking along a park boulevard. Later in the episode, we see the same brunette-haired woman briefly in a foreground shot at the beginning of the benefit event that Chris and Gillian attend. It seems unlikely that the woman would have legitimate business in both venues.

    • Note: The white tennis shirt with the red and black diagonal bars that Roland is wearing on the court in this episode is the same one that one of Audrey Lowe's beaux's is wearing on another tennis court in Time Share.

    • This episode was censored in later re-broacasts. Cencored content (which can now be seen on DVD) includes:


      - In the first sex scene, the original close-up of Raquel's butt when she's wearing a red thong and subsequently removes her bra while Roland strokes her butt-cheek.


      - In the second sex scene, approximately 15-20 seconds of footage was taken out as well as some of her moaning. For instance, in the original broadcast, the shot dissolves from the tennis court with Eve and Roland kissing to the shot of her breasts in her blue bra moaning. In edited editions, the shot transfers to the kiss to the first butt-shot of her in sex scene #2 where she is cut off in mid-sentence: "...Baby, I'm just gonna give you a taste of heaven." (Which makes no sense if you didn't hear Roland's deleted "What are you trying to do--kill me" moments before). And if I'm not mistaken, instead of three separate moans she utters during climax, in the edited version the first two are dubbed to include four moans (i.e., the initial two moans repeated)


      - After Eve has killed Roland in the second sex scene, she returns home and finds Junior in her bed. In the original episode, he calls her a "bitch" before he grabs her; of course, this curse word is striken in the edited versions


      - Also, when Claire Ballentine refers to Eve in the original episode, she says, "I paid that bitch an awful lot of money to take care of your father..."; but again, the curse word was striken in re-broadcast

    • Raquel Gardner was only 24 years old when she starred in this episode, her first of three guest appearances on Silk Stalkings.


    • About eight minutes into this episode, the opening scene with Chris and Rita (in which they discuss Chris' committment to accompany Jilian to a yacht club benefit), it disolves into the scene with Roland and Eve outside on the tennis court. While Roland is swatting tennis balls from the automatic serving machine, you can see Eve in the background sitting on a chair with her smooth legs spread-eagled. If you can take your eyes off her legs, notice that she is wearing a wristwatch on her left wrist. You can clearly see the watch when the camera zooms in on her while she's stroking her thighs. In the next scene you see the watch glitter, but when it cuts to her rising up from her chair to greet Roland, the watch is no longer on her wrist!

  • QUOTES (6)

    • After having had sex with and killed Roland Ballantine, Eve enters her apartment and finds Junior on her bed, drinking and smoking.

      Junior: So...how was my father?

      Eve: Fine, just fine. I left him with a smile on his face.

      Junior: Does it turn you on? Doing it with me and my father?

      Eve: You bet.

      Junior: You bitch. [Grabs her by her blouse and makes love to her.]

    • Chris: [to Rita, in reference to the number of male callers Eve's landlady noticed going in and out of Eve's apartment] ...If men were ships, Eve would be the Panama Canal.

    • Roland: You know, Eve, I'll let you in on a little secret. Junior rarely treats us to such charming company.


      Eve: Oh, I can't imagine Junior being hard-up for dates.


      Roland: Junior? Hell, no. He's wildly popular. What with the way he spends money, why shouldn't he be?
      Spend, spend, and pop will lend. You know, Junior has a secret for being rich: being born into the right family.


      Junior: Do you have to talk about money?


      Roland: What do you want to talk about? Your career?


      Junior: You know, money legitimizes everything, doesn't it? Even bastards like you.


      [Exits]


      Roland Wylie--put on some music.


      Wylie: Yes, Mr. Ballantine.


      Roland: [to Eve] Junior tells me you're a dancer.


      Eve: Yes, I dance.


      Roland: So...show me your moves. And maybe I'll show you a few of mine.


      Eve: I'll bet you can.

    • [Eve moaning; takes his left arm and handcuffs his arms to the bed rail)


      Eve: Now…I'm in charge. [Roland chuckles] Let's see if you can go three straight sets.


      Roland: What are you trying to do, kill me?


      Eve: No, baby. I'm just gonna give you a taste of heaven.

      e
      [Pants, reaches into her bra and removes amyl nitrate capsule concealed between her breasts]


      Roland: Oh, no. I can't; my heart. No, no, no.


      Eve: Breathe, baby. Breathe! Yes!


      Roland: God, no! No!


      Eve: Breathe! Yes—yes! Now…give it to me. [screams/pants] Uh, uh, uh!
      [Sighs]

    • Eve: Well...I should be impressed. But I'm not too surprised.


      Roland: Now, why's that?


      Eve: Cuz…I already know you have a nice, steady stroke. [They kiss; she feels him up off-camera] Eve: (giggling) Do I detect interest? After all that exercise?


      Roland: Let's uh…go check your return of serve.


      Eve: You got it.


      [Longer kiss; lead in to sex-scene #2)

    • Roland: Like I said, Junior...a man without money...is a bow without an arrow.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The edited version of this episode was given a TV-14 SV rating. In my opinion, it should have been given a TV-MA rating, or at least TV-14 DSLV, for language and suggestive dialogue as well. For instance, Eve's saying to Roland, "I all ready know you have a nice, steady stroke" in reference to their previous explicit sexual encounter is a bit risque. Also, the first sex scene has way too much cleavage to be acceptable for a TV-14 rating. I mean, the girl is wearing a thong and has her bra removed. One of the stills in this scene has her laying on Roland and her body is arranged so that even if the viewer knows she has a thong on, she is completely naked.
