We return to this episode with Lee and Amanda walking in the hospital gardens….Lee is using a crutch now instead of the wheelchair.. hmm.. progress!
Cute: Lee tells Amanda horror stories from his childhood about hospitals.(funny this isn’t in the script..). Amanda doesn’t believe it.. (man is he going to have a horror story with hospitals after this episode!)
Lee: no no.. when I was born the nurses almost lost me.
Amanda: oh they did not.
Lee: No they did too!
Amanda: they didn’t!
Lee: I went in to get my tonsils out and they took my appendix out too.
Amanda: now why would they take your appendix out?
Lee: the doctor said he had some time on his hands!
They make their way to a table and chairs and Amanda sets a custard in front of Lee for ‘later, in case you want it.’ – when clearly he doesn’t want it..
oh man!!! Considering how weird he is being Amanda deals with it pretty well.. she proceeds to silently take HIS custard and start eating it.
Amanda’s hem being uneven is sooo obvious- so Lee thinks!
Amanda: Could you relax a little bit? I mean you’re seeming veeery-
Amanda: tense. (haaa fabulous delivery here!!)
Lee admits he is tense.. he suggests that someone forced Walt into pulling something- Amanda reaches over and puts her hand over Lee’s for a moment. She tells him he needs to relax… (he doesn’t recoil!.. well that’s nice) he then starts to tell her about how he feels more tired when he has awoken than when he went to sleep..(He looks mighty fine for exhausted!!) blue door, noises (squeaks, thumps), a sinking feeling, hot, steamy, probably a jungle –
Lee is absolutely disgusted at her! he then goes to turn away, but glares at her one more time before putting his hand up to his face ( is he blushing???!!!) hehehehee… hey, was she still holding his hand when she said ‘probably sexual?’ I doubt it.. but I wonder that he thought she was coming on to him.. I am curious to hear what you all think. – why does Lee react this way to Amanda saying that? I think Sex was for once the last thing on Lee’s mind.. and it was Amanda that brought it up! I wanted to see Amanda’s reaction to Lee’s reaction.. but alas.. we didn’t get it.. it would have been fabulous to cut back to Amanda to find her stuffing her face with dessert… tee heee..
Ahh that little exchange is for me one of the funniest moments in smk!! hehhehee.. I love it. I wonder if they talked about that discussion once they were married.. hehehe…
Amanda heads to the lunch room to talk to Billy about Lee’s dreams.. hehhee.. well err about more than that I guess! I am guessing they are at the agency as the voice on the PA we vaguely hear when the door opens sound the same..but who knows! Oh no.. Amanda has on a ‘Visitor’ ID badge.. it’s the agency.. Anyway.. Francine shows Amanda in to talk to Billy, Alec Beaumont and his lapel flower :
Amanda to Billy: Yes, sir. Well, I’d just like to go on the record as saying that I regard Lee as a friend. And as such, I’m a little uncomfortable in snitching and spying on a friend.
Francine responds cheerfully: Oh, don’t be. That is standard operating procedure around here. Isn’t it?
Francine is so busy patronising Amanda’s not knowing how things are done- that she totally puts her foot in it… I love it! Amanda gets one up on Francine without even trying! Because Amanda is a nice person.. and Francine.. errrr…isn’t! I’m surprised Francine didn’t say Ohhh I do that to my friends all the time!!
Everyone just pretends they didn’t hear Francine.. Amanda goes on to explain in her rambling, disjointed logic Lee’s behaviour..
Ok okkkkk how many times do we need to see the film flashing and sweaty Lee in a trance? on with it! Muahahahaa!!! the Baddie has his this is the evil I am up to speech.. program Lee to shoot Billy and kill him.. ok blah blah blah..
5 minutes of Lee looking like this? Not even the fact he is sweaty is making it interesting to me….I’m done!!
Lester: What a guy. Keep up the good work. Details are important. Success comes one step at a time.
Lester: What a guy! Keep up the good work. Follow instructions. Success comes a step at a time.
Lester: What a guy! You’ve got real potential. Keep up the good work. Atta boy! Success comes one step at a time.
Hello??? you guys reading this ok? not slipping into a trance or anything reading this I hope??!!!
Hey, do you think the ‘What a guy’ line is maybe a reference to hart-to-hart??? it’s a famous line from the intro.. “This is my boss Jonathan Hart.. he’s quite a guy.” probably not.. but… I like to think so.. makes Lester the lame duck more interesting!
Did they choose a Duck to be Lee’s trigger to murder because they are Quacks????
This is one of my absolute favourite scenes in smk!! The ‘get me a woman’ scene!
Lee and Amanda are walking down the corridor.. Lee with his crutch –but he seems to now be bending his knee! It seems Amanda was carrying out a 10minute walk of therapy for Lee.
Lee: now I know why we don’t get along.. ” -err you seemed to get along ok to me.. ?? Eventually I think he loves her goodness! ( how does being a rule breaker fit in with his brainwashing?? i would have thought it would be the opposite.. it would steer him towards being a rule follower – following instructions and all that?? much more systematic and organised! Amanda breaks rules all the time- just not when Lee wants! haaaaaa -oh well.. I’ll go with it.. Maybe it’s Lee’s personality still showing… Whatever.. it makes for a cute moment betweeen them!
Lee: –This hospital experience has isolated the whole reason. Rule-breakers and rule-followers don’t mix. Amanda, I am a rule-breaker and you are a rule-follower.
Amanda: Oh? Oh ho!! Then you will be very surprised by the very nice treat that I have brought you contrary to many major hospital rules. (I love how she says this!! tee heee)
Lee the little boy is excited Amanda has brought him a treat.. but… oh dear.. it turns out lee wasn’t after the kind of treat Little boys go for!!!
Lee: Well, give it to me.
Lee: Yes, now! Come on, come on, I’m in a rotten mood. I’m still having those dreams, uh, squeaks and squeals, steam, the blue door.
My head hurts, my knee hurts, I want my treat now, come on!
(oh dear Lee.. this is such embarrassing behaviour.. thank goodness Amanda eventually must put it down to the brainwashing..) just don’t mention his car being parked by valets Amanda or you could be in serious trouble!!!!
Lee: Yeah. Yeah, that’s what I want. I want a woman.
( I tell you what.. the expressions on both their faces in this scene are hilarious!!! It’s so much fun slowing it down and taking them all in – it happens so fast!)
Lee smiles while making his demands and continuing down the corridor.. They pass the same elderly couple that heard them earlier. Lee seems pretty happy with himself getting that reaction from Amanda… !!! I think he was just thinking the most outrageous thing he could think of to get Amanda’s goat… Lee doesn’t need anyone to get him a woman.. I am sure he can do just fine getting one on his own!!!
Amanda: Well, I think you had better stop this right now because I will not get you a woman!
KJ’s delivery here is soooo funny! I love this….
Amanda: Now!… Just think of something else..
Lee does seem to ease up when he realises the old couple heard what he was saying! don’t you think? he shifts focus onto the next goal.
Lee: okay. I want to go in that room.
Dean and Amanda go to self defense class??? yep, I’d guess right now Amanda that Lee doesn’t care!
Lee talks to Walt’s wife again to see if Walt was being threatened or anything.. Oh no!!! It must be horrible for Lee to hear that Walt had been having terrible dreams too.. uh oh!!! you’re in big trouble Lee!
Looks like Dr Glaser’s evil plans are complete!!! What the heck are they doing to the back of Lee’s head??!! Whatever it is.. it changed Lee’s outfit.. from this:
In a second!!! haaaa ( Hey! if you are going to cut in old footage- make sure he’s wearing the same outfit!!) Poor Lee…Dr Glaser is taking over his fashion sense too.. Oh well… at least we don’t have to sit through anymore of Lee being brainwashed!! kinda boring..
Lee is reminded by Lester to call the doctor for instructions.. Whoa.. Dr Glaser pulls Lester’s strings so we can hear him and ta da!!!! Lee’s outfit magically changes again!!!
(Now that has really really got to mess with Lee’s head!)
Wow.. Dr Glaser is having a busy night of Evil! He visits Walt to up his dosage of Windex… Poor Walt.. he didn’t have a chance.. It’s pretty awful he dies.. a shame he had to die..
Well that is it for now.. I will be back in a few days to finish this episode – I would LOVE to hear any of your thoughts you would care to share!! Thanks for reading!!!
