Running Time:

04 SOPHIA LOPEZ - With business booming, Christian decides to treat himself to a top-of-the-line Lamborghini and later has no qualms about McNamara-Troy becoming the primary source of plastic surgery for the Florida porn business. Sean, however, takes great offense at this idea and later struggles with his own perceptions of perversion when Sophia Lopez(Jonathan Del Arco), a kind-hearted transsexual, approaches Sean about fixing the scars from an operation he had hoped would remove his Adam's apple. Elsewhere, Julia is determined to get her medical degree and disappoints Sean when she clearly wants to study with a sexy male classmate rather than indulge in the romantic dinner he had prepared for them. Matt's relationship with Christian is strained when he believes he may have contracted an STD from a woman he had met at a porn party he had attended at Christian's invitation. (allmovie.com)

05 KURT DEMPSEY - With Grace's approval, a Caucasian young man persuades Christian and Sean to operate on his eyes to give him an Asian appearance in hopes of impressing his girlfriend's traditional Asian parents. Elsewhere, Julia discovers that she's pregnant, and Sean urges her to keep the baby. Unfortunately, Julia's insistence on attending school despite her doctor's command to stay in bed leads to a miscarriage, which Sean is particularly devastated by. Christian attends a Sexaholics Anonymous meeting at the urging of Grace, but it doesn't do much for him as he ends up having sex with another member of the group. (allmovie.com)

06 MEGAN O'HARA - Sean is touched by his consult with Megan O'Hara(Julie Warner), a cancer patient who, after having had a mastectomy, wants reconstructive breast surgery. Still deeply upset about Julia's miscarriage, Sean decides to get a vasectomy in order to prevent another accidental pregnancy from occurring. Meanwhile, Christian and Grace fluctuate from furious shouting matches to passionate sexual romps, and Christian mistakenly believes a former patient of his is responsible for vandalizing his car. Christian decides to get back together with Kimber(Kelly Carlson), his ex-girlfriend, and Matt engages in an awkward threesome with his girlfriend and one of her fellow cheerleaders. (allmovie.com)

Billed as "a disturbingly perfect drama," Nip/Tuck is set in south Florida, where doctors Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) have built their own medical practice and are enjoying great success as the premier plastic surgeons of the area. Though physical perfection is their business, their private lives are far from flawless. Christian is an unabashed womanizer and uses sex to fill the void left by his abusive father, while Sean continuously tries to live up to the morally righteous standard he has set for himself only to fall repeatedly into personal hypocrisy and guilt. He certainly does so with Julia (Joely Richardson), his wife -- their seemingly ideal marriage is perilously close to crumbling beneath their feet and both constantly look outside of one another for what is missing from their lives. Though Christian catches a lot of flack from the McNamaras for his playboy ways -- which are, to be sure, emotionally abusive -- Sean and Julia are hardly innocent. Sean flirted with the idea of an affair when Dr. Grace Santiago (Valerie Cruz) joined McNamara-Troy and actually realized one with a patient of his; Julia, meanwhile, is harboring the secret of Matt's paternity. Matt, the McNamara's teenaged son, is carrying a burden of his own -- in addition to dealing with the trials and tribulations of adolescence, Matt was involved in a hit-and-run car accident and has been hiding his role in it ever since. Tying everything together is the string of patients filing into McNamara-Troy each day, whose physical imperfections more often than not force Sean and Christian to take a hard look at their internal ugliness.
