Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
In the pilot episode of Nip/Tuck, Sean finds himself increasingly frustrated with his boring marriage and plastic surgery business, which, to his dismay, doesn't take pro bono cases. On the other end of the spectrum is Christian Troy; busy pursuing every beautiful woman south Florida has to offer. Dr. Troy has no problem accepting 300,000 dollars from a sketchy client who more than likely is paying for this procedure with drug money. While Sean and Christian fight over how they want to run the business, Julia questions whether she gave up her life when she married Sean and had their son, Matt. Elsewhere, Escobar(Robert La Sardo), the head of a drug ring, makes plans to abduct Christian in hopes of finding out the whereabouts of Perez(Geoffrey Rivas), the rival drug dealer who had approached McNamara-Troy about surgery.
