"Angels are like Diamonds, they can't be made you have to find them. Each one is unique"

-Kelly Garrett to Dylan Sanders in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle

Kelly was a founding employee of the Charles Townsend Detective Agency. She was with the company for at least five years.[1]

While she worked at the Charles Townsend Detective Agency, Kelly was a regular customer at Guido's Italian Cuisine Luncheon Diner.[2]

Background

Kelly never knew her father.[3] Kelly didn't know her real name. "Garrett" was the surname of one of the sisters at Saint Agnes.[4]

Kelly was an orphan. She was raised in the Saint Agnes Home for the Orphaned in Dallas, Texas,[5] where she was under the authority of an orphanage matron named Beamish who used to lock in her a dark closet overnight. Kelly took comfort in the presence of a doll named Lillibet, which she still possessed as an adult.[6] She stayed in the orphanage until a fire in 1964, after which she was put in foster homes.[7]

One of her foster families was the Blaines. They took her in while living in Texas, just before they moved to California (bringing her along). She stayed with them for a year until Mr. Blaine died. After that Mrs. Blaine wasn't allowed to keep her, and Kelly was placed with another family.[8]

In her youth, Kelly met and befriended Sally Miles at summer camp. Sally said that Kelly always looked out for her, and that she had always considered her to be her best friend.[9] Kelly was able to start a campfire on the beach without any equipment,[10] a skill she might have picked up at camp.

Kelly went to high school with Sharon Kellerman and Randy Todd. Sharon later described Kelly as her best friend in high school, and Kelly would go on to act as Sharon's maid of honour.[11]

Kelly trained at the Los Angeles police academy. While still on the force she testified at the trial of Frank Desmond, which led to his four-year imprisonment.[12]

Kelly kept an unidentified black and white picture of a young girl on her dresser.[13]

Kelly was put forward as a possible heir to Oliver Barrows, who came to believe that she was his daughter. She eventually proved that she wasn't.

Kelly fell in love with Bill Cord. She said that there would never be anyone else for her. When she found out that Kris was also in love with him she said that she refused to give him up. After he died she submitted her resignation to Bosley, though was ultimately talked out of quitting.[14]

Fashion

Kelly had no trouble recognizing Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton products at a glance.[15]

Covers and Techniques

In 1979, Kelly was awarded an honourary degree from Blackmoor College in recognition of her contribution to the solving of a murder that had happened on the campus.[16]

Kelly did not understand Latin.[17] It is implied that she didn't know how to drive an eighteen-wheeler.[18] It is implied that Kelly knew how to surf.[19] Kelly knew how to pilot a yacht, though not very well.[20]

Kelly studied roller skating with Kenny Daniels, and became quite comfortable on them. She successfully chased him down when they were both on skates. Presumably she stopped taking lessons after Kenny's arrest.[21]

Kelly claimed not to be much of a dancer.[22] Nonetheless, she was comfortable dancing the tango.[23]

She didn't recognize the call of a peacock.[24]

Kelly was extremely vulnerable to hypnotism.[25]

Fellow Angels

Kelly was one of the founding Angels, alongside Sabrina Duncan and Jill Munroe. She later worked with Kris Munroe, Tiffany Welles, and Julie Rogers. She gave counsel to Dylan Sanders. Kelly told Julie that she got to like Kris very quickly.[26]

Jill claimed to be Kelly's best friend.[27]

Kelly and Kris competed for the love of Bill Cord. Neither of them was willing to back down until after he died. At that point they each took the blame for letting things escalate, and patched things up.[28]

Memorable Quotes

Kelly: [while going through heroin withdrawal] I'm okay, but I'll never forget what I've been through. Ever.[29]

Appearances

Kelly appeared in all five seasons of the show (the only Angel to do so), and in Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.
