Running Time:

07 CLIFF MANTEGNA - Desperate to please Christian, Kimber (Kelly Carlson) agrees to participate in various sexual role-playing games she is less than comfortable with and ultimately agrees to attend a swingers club that Christian had found out about through Cliff Mantegna(Alex Carter), one of his patients. Meanwhile, Julia's attraction to Jude, a young medical student, continues to grow, while Sean fights some mixed feelings of his own regarding Megan O'Hara(Julie Warner), a breast cancer survivor who had approached him about reconstructive surgery. After Jude (Phillip Rhys), who had convinced Julia to get him a position as an intern at McNamara-Troy, reveals that he himself is a regular sex-club attendee, Sean and Christian quickly agree to fire him. (

08 CARA FITZGERALD - Under the influence of marijuana, Matt and a friend of his accidentally hit a passing student while arguing over what radio station to listen to in the car. When they can't find a body, they convince themselves that they had probably hit a very large bird and leave the scene of an accident. The next morning, however, Matt finds out through a newspaper article that they had hit a schoolmate of theirs named Cara Fitzgerald(Alyson Reed), who is now in critical condition. Once Sean realizes Cara's family's religion prevents them from agreeing to necessary surgical procedures, he threatens to sue for medical custody and reconstructs Cara's face pro bono. Elsewhere, Christian is horrified to realize that a man who had requested to have a birthmark removed from his genitals is actually a child molester who was only concerned that the offending mark would give his victims enough proof to identify him to the authorities, and Grace realizes that Megan and Sean are having an affair. (

09 SOPHIA LOPEZ II - Christian sinks to a new low when he concocts a scheme to trade Kimber for a Lamborghini. All hell breaks loose when Kimber finds out -- incensed, she sets off for Sean's house and ties him to the bed by insinuating that it's merely part of a role-playing game. Back at McNamara-Troy, Sophia Lopez(Jonathan Del Arco), a former patient approaches the doctors about having a sex-change operation. Liz(Roma Maffia), a lesbian herself, agrees to a "girls night out" with Sophia on the eve of the surgery, and they confuse themselves by sharing an emotional kiss. When Matt approaches his father with news of Cara Fitzgerald's (Alyson Reed) potential progress, he nearly catches Sean and Megan in the act. Later, mistakenly assuming that Matt knows about the affair, Sean inadvertently lets Matt in on the discretion. (


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.
