Memorable QuotesEdit

Julie: Bianca, I've had it with your lies and playing innocent! Because of you, Kelly and I were nearly kidnapped, Kris and Bos end up in front of a truck, and you and I were nearly killed!
Bianca: Look, Julie, I'm really sorry.
Kris: Bianca. Shut up.


While scuba diving, Julie is attacked by a knife-wielding diver.

Kelly and Julie are apprehended by two thugs, but the Angels quickly beat them up.


Day 1—Julie was attacked while scuba diving, then she and Kelly were attacked at the Pacific Towers. The hippies meet with the drug buyer. Biance follows the hippies and insists she's their new partner.
Day 2—The hippies break into Julie's hotel room. Julie captures Bianca and takes her back to the Townsend Agency, where she plays innocent. Bianca and the hippies meet with the buyer, and Julie takes Bianca back to the Townsend Agency again. The hippies get impatient, and insist that the deal take place immediately.


Guest stars: Sonny Bono, Anne Francis, and Soon-Tek Oh, who appears as a local police contact in the next several episodes. Antonio Fargas (an Aaron Spelling regular from Starsky and Hutch) also appears.

Sonny Bono's stoner partner-in-crime, Claude, spends much of the episode in white short-short bathing trunks. His big nuts bulge practically out of the trunks. Gross!
