Are we ready to continue? On with the show!
We cut to a produce truck backing up. I bet you’ve all been looking forward to this produce truck. rofl! 😉
LOL this is a magical hotel! the front is in a city location..
The back loading dock is in a country location! rofl! it’s one massive hotel!
the driver of the produce truck hands a few crates to another guy wearing a cap, to take into the back of the hotel.
We see an agent.. (agency I guess)
Kilroy: Deliveries coming in. Two men.
Inside Zhmed is in a corridor at payphone, frantically slipping though telephone book.
Zhmed: Fifty-seven Bolton Place, Kile. A.
He flips the pages some more.. and as he does so, the guy we saw in the cap happens to take off his cap, and jacket and put it on a random hat rack behind Zhmed. Camera zooms in on page to show King, A, 4247 Maplewood Drive, 555-7043 which he reads out loud.
[Anyone want to give Amanda a call?! You have got to be kidding me!!!! Amanda knows Russian bad guys up close, and her name and address and phone number are all listed in the phone book???!!!!! Whahahahaaha!!!! Why is there no suburb for anyone with the last name king? And why are all the numbers around Amanda’s starting with 555 but none of the others do? Is this a real page that’s been doctored? I wonder!!
Oh I could pick at this listing like crazy it just doesn’t make sense! I’ll move on!]
We cut to Lee (lookin good) and Amanda still waiting at the table..
Keeping an eye on the KGB agent, and an eye out for Zhmed.
We cut to the back loading dock.
Zhmed is hopping in the back of the delivery truck, covering his face with an empty box on his shoulder.
The truck drives off slowly.. with Zhmed the delivery guy in the back.
So Kilroy turns to speak into his radio.
Kilroy: Delivery men are out…
…Stetson and King are still covering subject in restaurant. [What, not code names?!]
Having gotten past Kilory, Zhmed jumps out of truck and starts running away.
Kilroy: Teams One and Three, remain at your present posts.
Inside, the KGB agent gets up and heads to the restrooms to see what’s taking Zhmed so long. Lee and Amanda take it all in. The KGB agent quickly heads back out in a hurry, knocking over a waiter. LOL way to be inconspicuous!
Lee: I think your tourist just took another vacation. Come on.
Lee and Amanda immediately make to leave.
Lee grabs Amanda’s hand Awh!!!!
They begin to leave.
Kilroy intercepts them to explain. I note Lee immediately lets go of Amanda’s hand.
Kilroy: I missed him out back. Team one thinks he went towards the Metro.
Lee: Alright. Put spotters on the next five stops… (Kilroy leaves without another word. Lee’s giving the orders)
…This guy is doing more than just checking out the sights.
Amanda: How could we miss him?
(Lee reaches out for Amanda’s hand again)
… well if it’s any consolation, the KGB lost him too.
With that, they leave.. and the scene ends..
Back to the King home and Amanda arrives home..
Dotty: Amanda! I’m in here.
Amanda: Hi Mother! I didn’t expect to find you at home
Amanda enters the kitchen and heads over to the flowers on her kitchen bench to move them over a few inches.
Random! She then looks up to notice her mother is involved in something..
Dotty: I know. But I got so involved with my ATC introduction that I pushed ground school back an hour. Captain Curt made an exception.
(Amanda sits next to her and picks up a brochure)
Amanda: Wait just a minute! What’s ATC and ground school and Captain Curt? What in the world is this?
(Amanda opens the brochure and we can see inside)
[This episode is sponsored by….. Cessna!]
Dotty: Oh that. That’s a Cessna 172….
…It’s a single engine, over instead of under wing, fixed landing gear, 15,000 foot ceiling,…
[We see Amanda nodding.. her expression is pretty neutral.. I’m wondering if it’s deliberately neutral!]
…but it’s going to be weeks until I get up there…
Amanda, I will clean all this up when I get home but I’m in a hurry.
(Dotty goes to get up and leave.. Amanda speaks up!)
Amanda: Mother! What are you talking about?
Dotty: Flight school.
Amanda: Flight school?
(Dotty gets up)
Dotty: It won’t be long. In sixteen weeks, I’ll be soaring with the eagles… and Captain Curt who’s my instructor. Fifty-three, six-two, a real buff hunk.
(Dotty starts heading for the door)
Amanda: This is my mother who gets a rash on the Key Bridge?
Dotty: I know. But there is something about the wild blue that is so… I don’t know, so…
Dotty: That’s right!..
…And I aim, I just aim to conquer it.
(Dotty flings her white scarf over her shoulder with great flair!)
[Dotty is hilarious here! I just have to share these funny slightly blurry images of her!]
Amanda: You aim to conquer Captain Curt.
[whooo haaaaa! Go Dotty! I’m thrilled to see her a) getting a hobby and b) showing an interest in men again! I think it’s been pretty quiet since Rebecca’s fantasies! Umm now I think about it.. maybe that weekend away didn’t go so well
Hey Amanda you can tell Dotty about how you flew a helicopter once!!! and.. you kinda flew a 747 down a runway.. ahem.. ]
(Dotty behind her, Amanda is distracted by a movement out the window.)
….Who’s that up in the treehouse?
Dotty: That’s little Bobby Kenwood. He is testing the laws pertaining to squatters’ rights. He goes up there every afternoon and the boys chase him away.
Amanda: Mother, he’s too little to do that. You gotta tell him to come down.
(Amanda heads out the back door to go stop Bobby’s squatting)
[More flowers?! We are going a little over the top with the flower pots now aren’t we?! four flower pots???!!!]
Dotty calls after Amanda: You are absolutely right. I’ll call his mother when I get home .
(Dotty heads out the front door leaving Amanda to get Bobby down).
We see Amanda outside in her suddenly massive back yard!
Amanda: Bobby! It’s too high for you up there… [Amanda gets no answer so she tries a different tactic to get Bobby down.]
…Alright, whoever you are, you better show your face or I’m calling the police.
Zhmed’s head pops up!
Amanda looks shocked!
Amanda: Mr. Stringell!
Zhmed: No. It’s Mr. Dorloff…
…Zhmed Dorloff of the USSR…
(We see a fast zoom in on Zhmed)
… I want to defect.
Whoa.. Amanda sure is lucky!
Even she can’t believe it!
LOL, KJ does her funny I’m confused schtick!
And the scene ends here. I better pause here – any thoughts you’d like to share everyone?
Anyone else thrilled to see Dotty has two new pursuits? (Captain Curt and flying?!)
