Back to the rooftop.. and Stunt Lee tackles Stunt Canaan..
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002654754[2]
Whoooo all those hills in the distance.. and no Hollywood sign?! boooo!
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002658091[1]
they fight.. or should I say – Lee punches the daylights out of Canaan..
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002663897[2]3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002663763[1]
Lee leads Canaan away..
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002669703[1]
LOL it seems the limo has moved and the dish is now pointing at a cloudy sky..
Back in the car park.. Billy stops the two male baddies..
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002682782
Billy: That’s far enough!
[whooo Billy is tetramonomad!]
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002684517My goodness.. Billy takes out two baddies practically simultaneously..ahhh slowing it down now I can see he shoots the baddie at the front who politely then turns to shoot his buddy as he collapses to the ground.
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002685118[2]
Not sure how, but Daisy got past Billy, runs out of the car park towards Amanda’s car.
well second unit Daisy runs to Amanda’s car!
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002691791[1]
Daisy is suddenly polite once again! she politely runs past Amanda’s car door within striking distance!
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002692792[2]
Amanda seizes the opportunity and opens the car door, surprising Daisy and knocking her to the ground.
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002694794[2]Amanda looks down on her own handiwork

3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002695795 (that’s an Amanda Dispatch!)

Daisy is out cold. LOL I guess she cracked the back of her head on the cement..
The old whack the terrifyingly skilled and dangerous criminal with the car door trick! Winking smile (when were the other times?? fearless dotty?? any others?)
Billy and Lee happen along, with Lee dragging Canaan by the arm. So Amanda gets out of the car.
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002702802
Billy:  Good work, Amanda.
(why is Canaan smiling?? Is the actor thinking- I have the best job ever because I didn’t have to fall and crack my head?! )
Lee looks down at Daisy with amusement..
Amanda smiles..
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002706806[1]3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002704804[1]
Amanda loves her work! Smile
Lee and Billy look at Daisy and Amanda with amusement too..
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002707807[1]

They share a look.. [Amanda sure is lucky! gag.. no noo Amanda sure is resourceful!!]
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002708808
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002709809
They look back at Amanda with amusement.. Err respectful amusement! (Ramusement?!)
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002713813
[lol this is very similar to the end of Weasel.. almost a replay except Lee doesn’t call Billy an old Weasel! Winking smile]
Now I think about it this whole ending is very much like Weasel –did anyone else notice this?  Lee and Amanda working together to help Lee’s friend who is out in the cold and suspected of being a traitor (close enough to rogue elephant I think) – we even have the dazed and helpless baddie along for the ride as everyone is amazed at Amanda’s skills.. just like in Weasel..
LOL Plus Weasel had some big issues with the timing of things – that made zero sense of the plot too oh and Lee wears the same jacket in Weasel.. and jeans! Hmm!! (they must have been hoping the jeans would make the plot irrelevant! – did this work for anyone? Smile )
Interesting.. I know Weasel aired before this ep, but I’ve had an idea in the back of my mind.. that they filmed this ep, and saw the luck/guess thing doesn’t work well, it doesn’t progress Amanda’s character– and so in Weasel, they adjusted things slightly so that there was more emphasis on Amanda having good instincts – she makes educated guesses (e.g. that Amanda knew to look in the Dancing Weasel file was
‘pure instinct’ ). Not just random guesses.. This makes me feel a little better about this ep. This episode was actually being written before the first episode of season 3 aired – so it’s possible weasel was adjusted before season 3 commenced.. [hey it makes me feel better!]
Weasel aired on 14 October and this episode’s script is dated 16 September (shooting draft)..
Just an idea.. I think the early season 3 episodes were all jumbled up in writing/production..

Sorry I digress! It’s tag time.. Lee’s car pulls into the IFF garage.. We see Lee and Amanda in the middle of conversation enter the bullpen.
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002722822– Lee sees
Francine and motions to Amanda to hang on a second..
Super happy Lee:  Well!! Francine!!
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002725825[1]
Francine flatly:
  Hi.
(Francine is not happy.. she doesn’t look up from her file to greet Lee.. )
Lee:  Ha ha.  I’ll bet you’re glad that Billy’s back, huh?  You don’t have to hold down the fort all by yourself.
Francine:  I think I sabotaged the fort.
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002728828[2][LOL well this is curious! I didn’t expect Francine to be so upfront with her failure!!! Could it be that thanks to this whole experience Francine is a little more humble and the better for it??]
Lee: What?
Amanda:  (at the same time) What’s the matter?
Francine:  The requisition for employee coffee beans accidentally got typed on an Agency transfer form.
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002735835[2][that is devastating stuff!!! not!! Seems to me Francine holds herself to very high standards.]
Amanda:  Oooh
Lee: (at the same time) Hmm.
Francine:  The computer allotment accidentally got filed with the Agency expense accounts, giving Johnson a $40,000 reimbursement check.
[Well! this is waaay worse than Amanda pressing the ERA button! Smile]
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002740840[1][Lucky Johnson! haaa Okay this kinda matters! but I think Francine should have blamed the overpowering microwaves that were let loose in DC by Cyclops!]
Amanda:  Oh, gosh.
Lee:  (at the same time)  Oooh.
Amanda:  Uh, well, Francine don’t worry…
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002746846[1]
(Lee gives a little smile here. I like to think that he appreciates how Amanda is trying to make Francine feel better) … Just explain to Mr. Melrose, I’m sure he’ll understand.
[I’d say don’t worry Francine, Mr Melrose will be too distracted by your ear buttons to notice!]
Lee:  You know Billy.
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002750350
We hear Billy off camera yell:  Desmond!…
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002751351
Whahahahaaha!
(we see Billy looking all stern at his office door)
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002751751
…  My office on the double!
Francine:  Excuse me.
Francine, Lee and Amanda are shaking in their boots!

3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002752852[1]
Francine snatches the file back from Amanda.. who is transfixed by cranky Billy!
The guy can take all forms of physical torture and lots of drugs and not break.. but the wrong forms being completed?? the wrong cheques being issued?? Francine you are gonna get it!!! haaaaaa…  Remember your Mantra Billy! Winking smile
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002754354[2]
Billy:  Leave this place for ten minutes and all hell breaks loose!
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002757857[2]
Francine heads into Billy’s office..
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002759786
Amanda:  Uh, sir….?
Billy winks.
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002761861[1]
and gives Lee and Amanda a quiet smile
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002762862[2]
– he’s not really cranky he’s just messing with Francine – and probably happy to have his office back Smile
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002759786[5]
We see Lee and Amanda react to Billy’s smile- they share a secret little sideways glance..
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002764864[2]
happy that Francine is getting a hard time? lol..
Definitely happy to have Billy back and his old self..
3.08-REACH-FOR-THE-SKY.avi_002771871[2]
The episode ends with Lee and Amanda sharing the happiness of Billy being back – and IMHO the happiness of helping their friend Billy to come back!
I know not every tag can be a wow tag.. but this one is a ‘leaves me a little meh tag’.

A rather subdued ending to what for me has been a very hot and cold episode.. overall I am not thrilled with it!
A few fab little Lee and Amanda moments.. a highlight for me was Amanda pulling one over on Francine with her accusation of Amanda lying – whooo hooo!!
oh and how could I forget- Lee in jeans.. and Lee in uniform!!
I liked Daisy the baddie – she was evil fun!!
And the You’re a cab and I was a Kappa moments were great – both of which it seems are both down to ad libs and the writers can take no credit for them!.. why does that surprise me?! So many things I liked.. and yet the episode fell flat for me..

The plotting issues were kinda embarrassing.. and the time filling helicopter tour of Washington DC was a great big yawn.. but the episode had some visually really interesting frame composition / camera angles – especially of the baddies..

Oh and I’d like to point out that it seems in the end, they stop the robbery- but they don’t stop Cyclops!! and the organisation would most likely still be operating somewhere in the world.. I wonder why they didn’t bring them back again- (err and make it more interesting! haaa) This feels unfinished.. unsatisfying.. maybe they intended to one day bring back Cyclops?

The theme of loyalty is a good one.. and I guess this episode in the end was more Billy-centric even when Billy wasn’t present. which is why the tag is a bit Meh.. Just feeling a bit flat about this one guys.. Looking forward to hearing what you all think of it!!
I am also not 100% certain that this episode goes after sour grapes.. I’m pondering this one, what do you think? any reason why it can’t be? Dotty in Utopia now and Dotty in Sour Grapes and Dotty in this ep seems to be up and down.. Dotty makes a tiny bit more sense if this episode and her getting cross with Amanda on the phone comes before sour grapes and after Utopia Now- in sour grapes Dotty seems to accept what excuses Amanda makes knowing she will never find out the real reason from Amanda for what she is doing.. remember??
Does Lee and Amanda flow okay if this is before Sour Grapes but after Utopia Now?? Nothing is jumping out at me that makes it impossible..again I find myself thinking – I want to watch the next episode before I decide for sure which order I prefer..

One again- a final big thank you to BJo for contributing to the smk fandom with the transcribing of this episode- BJo we salute you!!

I really can’t wait to hear what you guys all make of this episode! How about you?! do tell!!!
Coming up next.. J.Edgar’s Ghost! Smile

14/15 Season Three, Episode 8: Reach for the Sky-Scarecrow and Mrs King

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002508608Billy:  You see anything else?
Oh Billy.. you have no idea just how much of DC Lee has seen!!! Enough already! Winking smile
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002509609
Lee:  No, not yet.  I’m going to swing down DuPont Circle down to Pennsylvania Avenue and up towards you on 16th, okay?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002514614Billy: Okay, I got it.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002518618Back to an aerial shot of the helicopter this time passing the white house from the other side..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002523623
Lee:  Okay, let’s head up north to DuPont, along Connecticut.

We cut back to Daisy and Canaan on the rooftop, Daisy now has out a laptop and is typing away..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002526626Wait a minute.. Daisy can karate kick Lee’s butt, give Zorbel a bare handed Daisy dispatch, has computer skills and types 100 words a minute? This woman is a super baddie!! Trust a woman to have so many top skills Winking smile I like the equal opportunity baddies haaaaaa.. then again, woman baddies seem to be exceptional in order to qualify as baddies.. Male baddies can be totally mediocre and make the grade..

Back to Amanda’s car.. Billy’s on the radio, Amanda’s looking at the map.
Billy:  Keep us posted, Scarecrow.  It’s 9:23.
[Yep.. this sequence has gone on way too long!]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002528628Lee on the helicopter with no wind responds: I know. [It feels like it has been longer.. believe me!]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002531631Daisy: It’s 9:23…3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002533633
[Phew, Lee, Billy and Daisy are in sync!
Interesting that once again everyone is checking the time.. just what does it all mean??!!]
The transmissions from Zurich are coming through. (2 minutes early?)
Been a while since we heard Daisy talk!
Canaan:  That’s early.  So unlike the Swiss. [lol I’m worried.. I was thinking the same thing as Canaan!!]

We see a close up of the computer screen.. lol.. Good Day!!! Is it really naughty that I don’t feel a pang about someone stealing from a bank?!!! ugh.

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002543643[Hey it says ‘zulu time’ interesting!!]
Lee:  No luck yet Billy.. (did someone say ‘luck’?! Winking smile )
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002552652

A close up on Lee and then.. more views of DC.. Oh come on!! enough!!! (view of DC that is.. there can never be too many close ups on Lee!)

Yes another!!! well.. at least I have made it easier for anyone who might like to give us a commentary for Lee’s aerial tour of Washington Dc. I think this would be a fab fan vid- Lee welcomes us to the daily tour – it finishes at 930am! Winking smile
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002553653
Damn it, where are they?
[Yes! where are they?!]
Daisy:  The link to the Northwest Bank of Washington is coming over.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002558191Eeeeven moooore of Lee’s voice in a helicopter.. Lee:  We don’t have much time left…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002560660
[yeah because we’ve been given a scenic tour of Washington DC! Oh wait.. here’s another reference to time!! ]
…  Oh, what’s this?…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002563663(we see what Lee can see- lol what else could it be?! whahaaha..nothing suspicious here! Winking smile )
…Billy?  Do you read me?3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002566666
…I think I’ve got something. ..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002570670…Near Potomac Park, the middle of the block between 19th and 20th…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002574674…Looks like they’re on the roof of a new parking garage.
Billy:  We’re on our way, Scarecrow.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002575675Amanda hands Billy the map
Amanda:  Right. Here, sir.  Right there.
Whooo go Amanda.. her wheels squeal and she’s off! this finale is really not smk’s best.. this was always going to be a tough sell I think..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002582682Lee:  Hey!
(Lee calls to the helicopter pilot, gives him a tap on the shoulder and signals for him to go down)
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002589689
Caanan:  Keep them away!  Start shooting!
[Does the helicopter get hit by a bullet or microwaves?! it does seem to get between the two dishes! Or Lol.. did it get hit by an energetic cash transfer?! Winking smile ]
The baddies shoot at Lee and Lee shoots at the baddies..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002592692

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002596696The helicopter starts billowing smoke.. Hey being shot at seems to have altered the paint job and number on this helicopter too! whahahaha
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002422522
Lee:  We’re hit, Stevie!  (BJo says- At least I think he says Stevie.)
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_0025976973.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002598698
We see Amanda zoom into the car park and stop. 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002605705Both Amanda and Billy get out..
Amanda and Billy look up at Lee’s injured helicopter..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_0026147143.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002615715It disappears behind the building. (did it crash? well I guess you’d hear that no?)
Amanda:  Where did he go?
[Poor Amanda..I think she’s afraid for Lee’s safety]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002620720Billy:  Get in the car, Amanda.  I think we’re going to have company in a second.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002622722We see the Helicopter spewing smoke over the baddies.. let me guess.. it’s tetra monoxide?! Winking smile
Daisy shoots..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002623723
I don’t know why but this moment of Lee in all this smoke looks funny! Maybe because in a moving helicopter that shouldn’t be possible?!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002624657
Lee is such a good shot- he can shoot out the umbrella on the baddie’s limo- from a moving helicopter.. Nope.. this is luck! Winking smile
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002625058
Now the umbrella is damaged it’s time for the baddies to make a run for it. LOL that looks like second unit Daisy again!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002627727
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002628728Billy now more urgently: Get in the car, Amanda!
Amanda gets in the car, while Billy starts heading into the car park on foot..

Lee makes preparations to lower himself onto the rooftop for a final showdown with Canaan 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002639072(it’s safe for Lee now, Daisy has gone! haaaa)
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002642742Canaan shoots at Lee as he lowers himself down  – lol an easy target and Canaan misses? Hmm maybe that’s why he needed Daisy!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002644878

Lee lands on the roof.. 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002652752

Canaan decides to make a run for it.. I guess he realises he is a lousy shot and no match for Lee?! whahahaha..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002653753
why is Canaan smiling?! rofl!!! He looks gleeful!! it’s like the actor is thinking ha haaa! I get paid to dress up and run with a gun: best job ever!! He looks to me to be laughing! lol!!!

Sooooo what do you all make of this scenic tour of Washington DC?! Action Lee? Why does Daisy make a run for it??
I better stop here.. I’ll be finishing up in the next post. Looking forward to hearing from you!!! byeeeeee!!

13/15 Season Three, Episode 8: Reach for the Sky-Scarecrow and Mrs King

Lee calls to Amanda as she gets herself together again after the talking to from Dotty..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002340473Lee:  Amanda?!
Amanda:  Yeah.

Amanda approaches Lee and Billy again.
Oh wait.. Lee changed out of the guard’s uniform back into his jeans! Hmmm this man has his priorities right!! Haaaaa… oh wait…jeans or uniform..hmm actually that’s a toughie..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002346079
(Billy suddenly has his jacket back too!!! haaaa)
Lee:  I think we’ve got it.  Alright.  Zorbel said “overpower”, right?
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002347681Amanda:  Right.
[Amanda suddenly has her purse again and her jacket.. she took her jacket off in the elevator.. and I guess she left her purse in there too- but when the baddies left they would have used that elevator no? I think too much…
Me confused.. it’s hard to concentrate around the jeans Winking smile ]
Lee:  If he uses a microwave dish close to an earth station, he can overpower real satellite signals.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002351951Amanda:  Well, yeah, but how are you going to steal money like that?

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002355689Lee: Well, banks don’t move money around anymore.  They move energy – electronic cash.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002358892[Energy?? This line cracks me up every time.. it’s so lame..it’s hilarious!!  and BB delivers it with such believability and authority!!! and.. the jeans look good ahem!
So did Zorbel in the opening scene tazer Aghaney with money?! Winking smile tee heee
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_000224824
Was this an electronic funds transfer? whahahaaha..]
Billy:  Canaan’s going to use the microwaves to put a lot of it into the Cyclops accounts. [That's interesting.. wouldn't that mean they could possibly track the $$ and find out Cyclops' accounts? LOL I guess Cyclops would cover their tracks well]
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002363430Lee:  And if we don’t stop him, it’ll be the first billion dollar bank job in history. [Him? not them?]
Amanda:  Well, we’ll stop him.  How are we going to stop him?

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002370470[Love that! so Amanda!!!! She’s sure they 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002373473will stop them.. even if she has no idea how yet! Smile]
Lee: Well, all we have to do is find their microwave dish by 9:30.
All we have to do.. I love it..
The three start walking away..
Amanda:  How?  It could be anywhere in the district.
Lee:  Yeah.  Let’s see.  There are only four commercial microwave stations.  They’ve got to be close to one of them.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002382482[Four? well that doesn’t sound so bad.. You know what – I love how they never think to you know like call the banks and like tell them to halt transmissions for like you know like an hour or two!..
Surely the agency would be able to temporarily shut down a satellite and give some kind of cover story for this? – you know like ‘Francine’s in charge and she pressed the ERA button by accident.’ yes that would have done it. It certainly would have made my day to hear that! :)
Ohhh dear I’m rambling! sorry!]
Billy:  The Agency chopper!
[Eh??? Dr Smyth said to leave the agency out of it?! I love how it's 'the' agency chopper.. do they only have one??!!]
Lee:  Yeah!  Look, I’ll start from the phone company and work out in concentric circles.
Billy:  Amanda and I will cover the street, and if you find them and flush them out, we’ll be waiting for them downstairs.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002391491Amanda:  Right.
Lee:  Alright.  Good luck.
Billy: Yeah.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002396496[You can’t see Lee’s hand when he says good luck, but I think it might be on Amanda’s elbow- I picture him giving her a squeeze as he says this good luck.]

Oh swoon.. you see when they wish each other luck coming down the stairs Amanda puts her hand on Lee’s shoulder…
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002399499
and Lee quickly reciprocates with a quiet little side hug Billy won’t see?? swooon!!!!! 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002400500

Awhhhh you know.. for all my gripes about this ep, this is smk at it’s best – these little ‘touches’ (no pun intended!) between Lee and Amanda.. really well done!

3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002403503And so begins a rather drawn out and yawn worthy 5 or 6 minutes..
A tour by air of Washington DC.. Oh well.. at least we have action man Lee Stetson as our guide.. although his commentary is not very helpful!! ;)
It’s almost like they needed to fill up some time in this episode.. I find it quite strange! I’m going to cover it all – I think the totality of this ridiculous sequence needs to be seen to be believed.. Oh smk!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_0024075073.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002414514We cut to a stretch Limo pulling into a car park..
Then a chopper taking off somewhere else..we hear Lee saying:
Let’s get this baby in the air.  We’ve got a lot of ground to cover.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002416516Oh hey this is cool.. smk uses actual footage of a helicopter in DC – you can see the Washington Monument behind Lee.. (and the double for Lee is wearing Lee’s clothes.. not bad!)
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_0024225223.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002424524We cut to the station wagon zooming down a freeway.. and hear Billy say: We’re on our way, Scarecrow.  Let me know when you see something.
[umm how is Billy talking to Lee while in Amanda’s car?? Does Amanda have a CB radio??!!!
Oh and did Amanda go home and get her car??  cos I could have sworn they were in Lee’s car when they headed to the building in the first place!]
The timing is so confusing I don’t know what to think – it seemed outside the building while discussing their plans that it was morning and they were heading off to look for the baddies before 930am wasn’t it?? Honestly.. I give up!

 

That silver limo we saw earlier pulls up on a rooftop.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002429529
Can anyone see the hollywood sign in the distance? I’m still hopefully that one of these days I’ll find it! Smile
The limo does a squeal for the camera Winking smile and pulls up in front of another evil looking black high rise Smile with a big white satellite dish on it’s roof.. lol stands out for us nicely!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002448548Daisy and Canaan get out.. with a couple of his henchman.. they seem to be in a bit of a rush.
Lee:  We’re heading north from the beltway.  We’ll check out the southwest sector first.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002449549
[We see the helicopter flying over DC.. hey does what Lee say match where the helicopter goes?]
Back to the rooftop and a baddie gets out a white portable dish/umbrella thingy.. uh oh.. that umbrella thingy is pointing at that other umbrella thingy.. stand by for microwave thingies!!! Tetra mono microwaves!!! (snigger!!)
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002465565

More shots of the helicopter with Lee in it flying over DC.
DC is sooo pretty..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002470570
This time we see the Lincoln Memorial.. so lucky for us that all these dishes happen to be located in a flight path that sends us past all the picturesque DC sights!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002480580Lee:
  Nah, there’s nothing suspicious-looking yet, but we’ll make a quick sweep of the southeast sector, then rendezvous with you at 16th and M.
[funny I don’t see any dishes.. just world famous sites.. isn’t Lee suppose to be looking for satellite dishes? (probably plastic ones.. for use with microwaves! Winking smile ) ]

Okay.. I got curious.. I often wonder about these things and move on because of time constraints.. but this time I’ve gone exploring..  I think the old stone building is funnily enough: ‘Old Stone House’ located at 3051 M street. Here’s a panoramic pic I found of it.

Billy:  Roger, (no it’s Lee!! sorry been watching flying high/airplane!) …we’ll pull over and wait for you.

Back to Daisy and Canaan on the rooftop.. Hey Canaan has put on a new suit!! –Seems this is suppose to be the next day.. though Daisy is wearing the same thing she wears the whole episode, maybe that is the Daisy uniform..
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002487587Back to Lee’s voice ( Winking smile ) in the helicopter as he now flies past the White House (LOL!! the scenic route!): There’s nothing much happening over here.
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002491591whooo we cut to a close up of Lee.. He reeeeeeally is on that helicopter – honest!
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002493593Lee: …Pretty quiet down here, too.
We see a view of DC from Lee’s perspective.. 3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002496596

Ahhh Billy is on a radio – okaaaay.. that little antenna can pick up Lee from across town?!
Billy:  Scarecrow, we’re at 16th and M.  Do you read me?  [are they?? anyone? Whooo well the M part fits with Old Stone house- but if I’m understanding correctly.. the 16th part doesn’t.. Anyone? ]

We cut to a close up on Lee yelling into his radio- his hair is suspiciously very still.. even with the amount of mousse Lee uses, it should be moving in that helicopter! Winking smile
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002504604Lee:  I got you, Billy.  I’m following Mass. Avenue to Rhode Island Avenue.  I can see the phone company’s dish from here. (I thought I heard Lee say the Montgomery dish but.. I don’t know!)
3.08 REACH FOR THE SKY.avi_002507607We see a rooftop and a dish (other than the one sitting in the helicopter!) .. yeah yeah.. get on with it already!!
Man.. quite a long winded geography lesson on Washington DC… I gotta say it goes on waaay too long.. but I am looking forward to hearing some local knowledge on this!!! I’ll pause here before we continue the getting to know Washington DC tour!
Can’t wait to hear from ya!  byeee for now!
