Lee seems to close his eyes here like he is trying to sleep (I though he was first watch?!) He lets out a big breath and mutters to himself: Rats.
Amanda peeks at Lee
– his eyes now closed..
she reaches out and snuffs out the candle with her wet fingers.
[how cool is this image! It’s like she holds a flame in her hand!] Lee realises the candle is out..
Lee: Oh, Amanda.
[Love how he says this.. part exasperation.. part affection!] Amanda is laying down again.. trying to get some sleep..
Amanda: I can’t sleep when the light’s on…
(Lee quickly lights the candle again – he’s determined! He needs the candle on more than Amanda needs it off?)
Amanda hears the snap of the lighter and shoots upright and simply states: . …I’m not gonna get any sleep all night.
[Guess she was hoping, with that information Lee would blow it out.. but nope! seems his fear is that strong! So much for mr considerate now! lol!!]
Lee leans back and fixes his blankie.. the candle still lit..
Satisfied with himself.. Amanda responds: I’ll blow it out as soon as you go to sleep.
As much as I don’t buy this fear of the dark, I do enjoy this little battle of wills going on – just because they like each other doesn’t make everything perfect.. and they will have their differences – but they still manage to treat each other like they do like each other.. I guess this is another continuation of the bantering that has been going on between these two most of the episode – this time it’s not for fun though, but in the end- they still care about each other and are okay I guess..
Hmm Lee if you ever want to sleep with Amanda all night you are going to need to get over this – Amanda can’t sleep with the light on!!
Amanda doesn’t baby Lee and his fear of rats – she wants darkness!!! Some may find this unfeeling? but I love it!! It’s late and she needs to sleep and I don’t really buy into this sudden fear of the dark anyway!!
The scene ends with Lee’s little look of triumph falling flat once he realises Amanda is right – she’ll blow it out once he’s asleep.. he still has a wry little smile here as he fixes his blankie – he’s been bested! :)
And Amanda’s been so nice about it
Tee hee.. don’t worry Lee.. Amanda will protect you from the rats..
I don’t know why Lee seems to be trying to sleep anyway.. he’s suppose to be watching Sea Chance first?! lol!
Sweet (rat free) dreams Lee and Amanda! I just hope someone is watching Sea Chance! (Maybe the rats are!! well I guess we know two rats are – Lanz and Heck!) Soooo what do you all think? Anyone love Lee’s fear of rats? byee for now!
