In "Monkey-Wrench Blues" Nancy (and mechanic Bess) is asked to drive a fuel-efficient prototype in a government-sponsored race. But someone is determined that Nancy and Bess lose- at any cost! Plus, when Bess and George help Nancy pick out a dress for Deirdre's big party, little do they suspect it's the identical dress Deirdre will be wearing. After a minor altercation with the perturbed hostess, Nancy leaves the party only to be grabbed by a dark figure, tossed into a van and kidnapped! That leaves Bess and George, with some help from Ned, to try and solve the mystery of exactly what just happened to Nancy in "Dress Reversal."
