16/20 Season Three, Episode 22: All the World’s a Stage–Scarecrow and Mrs King

Okay, we have a case to solve! Moving on.. Ms Walker is patrolling the IFF perimeter. Oh wait. No Ms Walker had the red handbag..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002289589_thumb
Who is this lady? We’ve seen her many times..
Anyone? Someone give this lady a name!

It seems to be the next day, and Lee and Amanda are back in Billy’s office. Francine (aka happy hooker) has joined them for a cuppa.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002294394_thumb
Francine: I did my happy hooker number on the muscle at the Potomac Plaza, the last thing they wanted to do was talk…

[Hey it’s the next day – she must have been working her happy hooker angle all night long? or why would she still be in that happy hooker outfit?!
Ah in case you want to cry – ‘it’s one of her ‘normal’ outfits!!’
– rofl! We saw this exact same outfit in Fast food for thought

when she was the sympathetic ear to  Cecil Bendix from Marvellous Marvin’s! rofl. same happy hooker necklace too I think.]
…Anyway the woman left the hotel at 605 this morning under heavy guard.
(As Francine plants herself on the edge of Billy’s desk, we see Billy, Lee and Amanda are taking a look at a set of photos-what I don’t know. I guess the woman and her muscle leaving?)
…She seemed perfectly fine.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002303403_thumb
Lee: Where’d she go?
Francine: Ah, an apartment at the Watergate. The lease is in the name of Jones.
[rofl.. Watergate? Treason??!!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002306106_thumb
Amanda: Original.
(Amanda comments without looking up for the photos.)
[lol doesn’t she sound like the confident pro now!
Okay guys.. did you catch that glimpse of the photo that Amanda is looking at??
Ohhh rofl!!!
Look!!! whahhahahaaaaa!!!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002308408_thumb
It’s this photo we saw in Flight to Freedom – Lee (pretty boy) and his old mate Bart Stoller!!! whahahahaa!!!

We saw it
HERE where one of the baddies had this picture and said the photo was taken in Angola with Stoller ‘last year at the US embassy’
I think Francine didn’t do her happy hooker routine, she got in a time machine and went back to a year or so ago in Angola! whoooo.. LOL. Okay okay.. I guess they could also be suppose to be the photos Lee took from the balcony..(from the waterproof and impact proof spy camera) but Francine taking photos in Angola is more fun!]
Lee: The question and answer boys get anything out of that big Russian? [women don’t ask questions and get answers?]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002312112_thumb
Francine: Oh nyet, they’ve been working him over for hours and all they know is he’s Krutiov’s chauffeur.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002312912_thumb
Lee: This whole thing hinges on the woman, Billy. We have got to ID her.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002319419_thumb
Francine: Well we know where she lives, why don’t we just bring her in and find out what’s going on.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002321721_thumb
Lee: Yeah.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002325125_thumb
[Whoa.. anyone else feeling dizzy with all these stripes, and coping with the effects of watching Lee Stetson?!]
Billy:We can’t go dragging people in here without sufficient cause.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002326026_thumb
[Ummm Lee and Amanda witnessed her getting drugged without her knowledge! I think she has a right to know! A cover story could be provided to somehow cover the investigation.. but.. whatev. I’m transfixed by that photograph in Lee’s hand – I really want to get a good look at it!]
Lee: Oh come on, Krutiov can fill that bill!  [‘fill that bill’? What is he a pelican?!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002329529_thumb
Billy: Agreed. But we have to know more before we do. That way we’re smart and tough at the same time.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002335635_thumb
[Aie. Did Billy just say that?! and he looks so pleased with himself! What a lame line of dialogue. This dialogue of dashed dreams insults my ears! Oh well.. at least Billy hasn’t resorted to a comb over!]
Lee: OK, come on Amanda,
(Lee gets up and reaches to take the photos from Amanda.)
[Ah! we just got a glimpse of the one Lee had been holding:
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002338138_thumb
Anyone recognise this photo Lee is holding?
I found it!
Phew.. this was a tricky one!
As it wasn’t on screen for long, and I didn’t actually publish a photo of it on the blog when it was seen (shocking – something I didn’t actually include on the blog Winking smile )
It’s this image:
JEG.avi_000816449_thumb
Billy holds this photo in THIS SCENE in J.Edgar’s ghost.. and it’s Nick Cross – booooooo to Nick Cross! Just how did he get mixed up with Krutiev, Martinet and Maria? Winking smile  This is getting complicated! Gee, maybe he knows Castille?! whahahaaa]

Lee continues (to Amanda): … I’ll introduce you to Ernie the Camera.
[Amanda takes the photo from Billy and passes it to Lee. They  head out to the bullpen]
Amanda: See you later, Sir. [Love how Amanda only says goodbye to Billy Winking smile ]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002342942_thumb
You guys notice- Lee opens the door for Amanda!! Smile We can see the photo Amanda is holding here but it’s rather dark so not easy to see.

At the risk of having more in common with Mr Ernie the Camera than I would like (eek)… I found this photo Amanda is holding.. Honestly.. it was completely by accident when I was hunting for the previous photo!
It’s HERE in Wrong Number

It’s Mr Tuttletowne outside and under surveillance picking up his Chinese food with extra crispy MSG.

All these reused photos tells me this episode can’t be before Wrong Number, J.Edgar’s ghost, or Flight to Freedom. LOL not that I was thinking any of those were possibly after this episode, but maybe someone was! (heck, maybe you still are thinking that: and that would be cool!)

Time for Amanda to be introduced to Ernie.
[LOL I guess we may have discussed Ernie at length the first time we saw him in the walk (a few posts earlier).
A quirky character.. very smk.. but he could have been so much more quirky! What will Amanda make of him?!]

Anyway, Ernie is reviewing tapes of photos again, holding a picture of Maria, on the balcony with Tony.
[Okay, not even I would include all these photos Ernie is looking at! Well.. I can if you want me to? Open to requests! Smile ! ]
Ernie: No, no, no. no, no …..
[I did pause to check if this image was Francine!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002347847
Anyone recognise any of these as having appeared before? me no. I always wonder who are these people? and where did they get the photo from?! Imagine if you were one of these people!! lol!! ]
Francine: Well she’s not with the State Department, these tapes are from Defence.
(Francine changes tapes or puts one away)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002351151
[
Ah Francine is there too. It didn’t look like she was going to follow them, she was happily sipping her coffee as they left Billy’s office. Oh whatev. But I am glad to see they aren’t going for the old Nerd hits on Francine gag here.. ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002352152
Amanda whispers to Lee: How does he do that??
[Amanda is quite stunned by this display! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002353953
I wonder if she’s making a mental note to herself: Must restrict the boy’s television viewing and encourage them to play outside more! (while staying away from random black limos in the neighbourhood)- Mon Dieu, Mon Dieu.]
Lee: It’s a special talent,…3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002355155
.. we’re very lucky to have him
Amanda: hmm..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002357257
Ernie: No, no, no…..Yep!
[LOL at the random bikini pic.. ‘Nice strings!’ – what ep everyone?!]
Francine: How many frames back?
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002362662
Ernie: 17.
[get out – it was not 17 frames back. Yeah Ernice.. the fish was this big!!!!! and no I’m not going to count. I’m  nothing like Ernie I tell you!! gah!!!!! get me out of here!!!!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002364964
(Francine scrolls back to the image)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002367967
Francine: Maria Von Clausen???
[Is it just me or is she missing an earring? and a few years of mileage?! ]
(Ernie double checks with his photo he’s holding.. )
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002371671
Ernie: Yeah I’d say it’s a perfect match…3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002372672 …Anything else?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002374074
Lee: She’s the director for laser research for the Strategic Defence Initiative.
[Lee seems to have a special talent of his own.. He hears a name and he immediately knows what they are working on and where they are working! rofl. Ernie and Lee.. the perfect Camera duo! rofl! ]
Amanda: Star Wars???3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002378978
Ernie: Star Wars?
(Ernie checks through his videos and then responds to Amanda)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002382182
…We haven’t got it.

[ah I was wondering earlier if the satellite stuff was star wars, I probably remembered this scene in the back of my mind – and just didn’t know it yet. lol. I’m thinking the whole Ernie the Camera elaborate set up was all in aid of that gag!!

Love the look on Amanda’s face in response to Ernie.. like ‘special’ doesn’t begin to describe him! ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002382782
Lee seems to know what she’s thinking Winking smile 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002383283
They have a silent exchange.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002383783
Yep.. he’s very special!
[And um just because I write a blog about smk for a bit of fun, doesn’t mean I am anything like him!!!! Okay maybe I’m a little ridiculous, but nothing like him! 🙂 ]
The scene ends there and so shall I!

What’s your fave pic in Ernie’s gallery? I’m thinking Francine is way too comfortable walking around dressed like a happy hooker in the workplace. She should have changed out of that outfit – not sure what that means about her character! This blog post is a long one! I might wait an extra day before publishing the next post..

Okay gotta run! As always, looking forward to hearing any thoughts, jokes, comments, questions, gripes, praises, whatever you’d like to share! Smile 

15/20 Season Three, Episode 22: All the World’s a Stage–Scarecrow and Mrs King

We find the evil limo driving slowly down a country road. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002211111_thumb
We see a glimpse of Lee and Amanda exiting the back of the car.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002213313_thumb
It’s all a bit blurry and unclear what’s going on. Seems Amanda dives first.. then Lee…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002215448_thumb
But drat it’s obvious Lee has the white socks and grandpa shoes! that’s not blurry! Winking smile

The limo comes to a complete stop.
Whoa. Lee and Amanda jumped out of the moving limo?
Whooo I guess after this moment: 2.12 SHIP OF SPIES.avi_002612880_thumb
Lee knows Amanda can do it Winking smile [Remember what ep this is? Ahem.. oh so tricky with Amanda wearing a wedding dress!]

Anyway, Mischa stops the car and finds Lee and Amanda missing, and a whole lot of damage to the interior limo door. haaaaa.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002227660_thumb
Love the posed handcuffs! So artsy for two escapees in a hurry! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002229763_thumb
Lee surprises Mischa with a left hook. Ahh satisfying! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002232665_thumb
Mischa gets in an elbow..
He goes to punch Lee but Lee ducks and instead Mischa’s fist punches the car. Ahhh very satisfying!
Lee gets stuck into him and starts winning.

Having thrown Mischa across the place, Mischa pulls out a… baton? Like what Paul Barnes whacked Lee with in wizard..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002248381_thumb
Amanda starts looking around for something to make a distraction or something.. (a little baton of her own?!)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002251484_thumb
While Lee tries to avoid the baton and a massive ouchie.
Mischa swings and misses.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002254187_thumb
Amanda can see this isn’t a fair fight..
Mischa and Lee continue to fight. Ouchie, I think Mischa lands one on Lee’s right shoulder. [Is that the one that had a run in with the bendy knife?!]
Lee struggles to his feet.. Mischa senses victory is close!
But.. he’s totally wrooooong.. running straight at him is Amanda’s leafy tree branch!!!!! Get him Amanda!!! She shoves the leaves in his face and completely confuses him.
[Mischa is surely thinking: what am I a Koala?!]

This was enough of a distraction for Lee to recover, and come at Mischa with a couple of punches taking him out for good. Hoorah!!

Mischa is flat out… Amanda rushes toward Lee..and reaches out to him.
She helps him upright, while he leans on the car for support.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002276142
Amanda: Are you all right?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002279045
Lee
(breathless): Yeah.
(
Lee puts his arm around Amanda and helps her up- now Lee leans on Amanda for support 🙂 )
Amanda: Huh?
Lee: Yeah
Amanda: Oh my gosh.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002279846
(Amanda tries to help him up and grabs his arm where he got hit by Mischa – Lee reacts in pain, so Amanda softens her grip)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002280647 [I notice she doesn’t let go though Smile ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002281681
…Sorry.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002282882
[Hearing this seems to jolt Lee back to where he is: in Amanda’s arms Smile ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002283383
[I get a sense her that Lee has so much he could say, but he’s a little lost for words – he seems a little overwhelmed by all the thoughts and emotions inside him so he pauses for a moment.. and then.. doesn’t really say much.]
Lee: Yeah. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002284184
Awhhhh Lee smiles away, so happy – and he pulls Amanda into his arms for a big hug! I think Lee is again so glad to have Amanda with him!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002284484
That says enough between them – for now! But one of these days…. Smile
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002284884
Awh.. What a team!!! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002285185
Ahhhh another hug to add to that eventual hugs post someone will do one day when they feel like it! 🙂
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002285385
Such a lovely little moment Smile Amanda looks very happy – with everything!! Smile
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002285685
I think this hug may include a bit of a rocking motion too!
Enough of the hug pictures?
Okaaaaay one more! Smile then.. I really must move on! Winking smile
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002285985
[Amanda looks like the cat that got the cream..]

The scene ends here.. I loved this whole sequence in the back of the car the first time I saw it, and I still love it! both working together and it’s a wonderful thing to see – but the affection and closeness is there also.

I think it’s what many of us hoped to see one day when watching season 1 – so for me this sequence is pure wish fulfilment! Smile

Short and sweet for this post! Back with more soon…

Okay – gotta run! Can’t wait to hear from ya!

14/20 Season Three, Episode 22: All the World’s a Stage–Scarecrow and Mrs King

Elsewhere in the hotel..
Valentine: I never should have agreed to do this.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002032132_thumb
[Ugh!!  I despise spineless reluctant baddies who go on about how they never should have agreed to do this – all while continuing to go along. That doctor in The Eyes Have it was the same! I guess the question is: Is Valentine one of these baddies? or is he going to step up and redeem himself?]
Krutiov: You never had a choice. None whatsoever…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002034534_thumb
[Krutiov tries for humour. It doesn’t suit him.]
Choice. That’s what it all comes down to. And here IMHO Krutiov continues to manipulate, giving Valentine an out- that it’s not his fault, he’s not responsible – he had no choice. So Valentine can ease his conscience and continue to do what Krutiov wants. It’s a lie though. Valentine is making a choice- he chooses to go along with Krutiov… but why?!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002036136_thumb
(Krutiov pulls a fat envelope out of his pocket- full of cash)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002039939_thumb
…This will assuage your guilt. Call it a bonus….
(Valentine rejects the envelope crossing his arms rather than taking it from Krutiov)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002047347_thumb
…I know you want one….
(Krutiov slaps him on Valentine on the arm with it.)
…No time for quibbling. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002049149_thumb
(Krutiov waves the envelope & Valentine takes it.)
[Ahhhhh this is why Valentine chooses to continue to go along, even now that he knows the terrible things he is a part of. ]
(The doorbell rings)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002051351_thumb
…That will be Mr. Martinet.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002053153_thumb
[Krutiov is sounding rather upbeat. Me thinks he enjoys his ‘work’ too much!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002058958_thumb
(Krutiov and Valentine move toward the door. Krutiov hides in a room opposite, Valentine goes to open the door.)
[I think Krutiov stays very close to Valentine here – as a looming presence, and another push to do what Krutiov wants]
(In comes Tony)
Carl: It’s over, good…. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002066166_thumb
…Can I have the tape?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002068968_thumb
Tony: This tape?
(Maria’s voice says “Thank you Dr Weber, The D-14.). [The tape stops]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002072972_thumb
…The rest is erased.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002076176_thumb
Carl: Tony, would you be serious?…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002080180_thumb
…If you don’t come through with this, they’re gonna kill you; they’re gonna kill me.
[I wonder if that’s true.. would Valentine really be killed? Who knows.. but it’s useful to say so. ]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002083583_thumb
Tony: I waited 10 years to get my play produced…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002086586_thumb
…And I had to betray the woman I love for it…
(more quietly) …I know what that makes me… 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002092392_thumb
…When I know that Maria is safe, and when the curtain comes down at the end of opening night tomorrow, then you get the tape.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002100200_thumb
Seems like Tony is a bit disgusted with himself for what he’s done so far.. Ashamed maybe?
That shame could result in Tony denying what he has done, downplaying what he has done, or embracing what he’s done.. Tony seems to be choosing to accept what he has done, and now improve the situation for Maria, but also for his play!
It seems Tony is discovering what he is made of – though I’m still unsure if he loves Maria more than he loves his play! [From what Tony says I think he’s admitting he’s chosen the play/his work/his career over his love for Maria]  

Valentine doesn’t have an answer for Tony, probably because Krutiov hadn’t foreseen Tony doing this and hadn’t given Valentine an instruction! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002102402_thumb
Tony and Valentine exchange no more words…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002103003_thumb
and Tony leaves. The scene ends there.
I wanted to see Krutiov’s reaction!

Night time, we see the black limo driving along  a quiet street.
On the backseat, Lee’s still out of it.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002111711
Time to do something about that!
Amanda tries to rouse him.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002114114
Amanda: Lee! Lee!
Lee: Uuuuh.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002117717
Amanda: Oh thank goodness I thought you’d never wake. up! Can you sit up?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002123523
Amanda helps Lee up into a less slumped posture.
Lee: Woah that was something real potent.
[Ohhh he was drugged? How?!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002123723
Amanda: Take it easy.
(Amanda runs a hand over his hair.)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002126026
[Partly comfort. Partly to help him rouse some more?.. Any excuse! Winking smile She’s a smart lady!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002126526
Lee blinks a few times, trying to adjust his focus..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002127627
Lee: It’s night,..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002128728
…where are we?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002129529
Amanda: I don’t know..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002132032
…I think we’re heading toward the Blue Ridge.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002133133
Lee: We gotta get out of here before we reach the Atlantic, then.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002135335
(Lee wiggles a bit trying to get at his hands behind his back. We see lights from passing vehicles)
Amanda: Yeah, you have a half-rake? [Thanks for transcribing this Karyn! I couldn’t make out what Amanda says here!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002137037
(Lee freezes!)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002137837
Lee: A lock pick?
[This is going to take some getting use to this Amanda having such spy skills and all!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002138138
(is it just me or is Lee looking at Amanda’s mouth here?)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002138838
Amanda: Yeah, a half-rake.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002139039
Lee looks thoughtful, and changes his posture again leaning toward Amanda to give her easy access. [to the half rake! to the half rake! 😉 ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002141741
Lee: Double Diamond in my collar stay…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002142442
(I do believe Lee licks his lips here as he moves closer Winking smile ) 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002143043
(Lee kind of chuckles as Amanda works at his collar.)[Incredulous at this turn of events I guess. thoughts? ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002144044
….Aw this isn’t going to do any good Amanda.
Amanda gets this pick out of his collar while Lee shifts his cuffs behind his back.
Amanda: I got it.
Lee: These things are so tight, my hands are dead.
[I’m pretty sure being unconscious and sitting on them for hours doesn’t help either!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002147347
(Amanda works on her own cuffs. Lee watches on with great interest!)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002151451
Amanda: We’re lucky we got the 7% of the bad guys that don’t always cuff you behind your back…
(She breaks out of her cuffs. Hoorah!)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002153553
…Ah!3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002154554
Lee: Hey!..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002155355
(Amanda starts working on Lee’s cuffs) 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002156356
…Leatherneck’s going to have to move you all the way up to safe cracking.
[Yeah!!! good one Lee!]
Amanda: Yeah, what’s he going to do to you.
Lee: I’d settle for grand theft auto aaah ow.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002164564
[This pic above is ripe for a meme! Especially when we walk through season 1 Lee being mean to Amanda! lol she looks like she’s enjoying it Winking smile
Given Amanda is working on cuffs behind Lee’s back, it would have been hilarious if he’d made a crack about her watching where she puts her hands Winking smile remember magic bus?!]
(Lee’s hands are free, though a bit sore!)
[LOL Lee still hasn’t learned to say thank you huh Winking smile ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002165865
Amanda: Sorry. (Amanda rubs his wrist a bit. Lee looks around trying to assess their current situation) [I guess.]
Amanda continues: OK. Let me get the other.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002169069
(Lee is checking if the door is locked, while Amanda suggests she un cuff his other hand)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002170070
Lee: Yeah. This thing’s locked from the driver’s seat…
We see a view of the back of Mischa’s head. He’s none the wiser at this breakout that’s under way. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002173773
Lee: Got it?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002175775
Amanda: Yeah, give it a tug. (the other cuff comes off)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002177777
Lee looks around the compartment to see if there’s anything he can use. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002181381
He comes across a corkscrew. [rofl! Mischa left a corkscrew back there??!!! whahahahahahaa!!!!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002185785

And I shall pause here for the moment..
Can’t wait to hear what you all think! Anyone remember watching this for the first time? what did you think of Tony at this point?

How fabulous is it to see Amanda using her new super spy skills, and Lee seems to enjoy it Smile Amanda is fantastic under pressure – surely this is the all important trait for a super spy to have?!

Anyway, I’ll finish here and look forward to hearing from you!
