Lee is back at his apartment..in jeans!! I bet they are having a huge party back at his old ward.. Good riddance!! Atta boy Lee!
Lee gives a gorgeous big smile at the steno girls giving him a present.. Marilyn? Jessica? ahhh no Marilyn!! (Lee!!! stop talking about other women already!! I don’t want to hear it!!!!) (did I mention he is wearing Jeans??!!!)
The poor thing.. he pulls the cord on Lester and his smile immediately disappears.. If only we could create a doll to do that to Francine… (It would have to be a Cow plush toy who, when you pull it’s string says ‘ Mooo! what a cow! Keep up the good work!! )
Hey, Lee in jeans! I didn’t remember him wearing them so early on..Butttttt I am happily surprised!.. Errr.. He really has got real potential… What a guy… sdghaoghiagoqaghagsa
Lee calls Dr Glaser as he was brainwashed to for his instructions.. Dr psycho tells Lee he is to kill Billy Melrose today.
Lee: sure. anything else?
whoa… Lee sounds like he was just asked to do something ordinary.. poor Lee! You would think this kind of brain meddling would do permanent brain damage.. ahem.. but then.. Lee is after all code named scarecrow [joking!!!! Our Lee is super clever really!!]
Next thing we see Amanda arriving for her shift at the hospital.. A candy striper asks Amanda for help bringing up the Linen. (Amanda is looking around a lot- was she on her way to see Lee? does she know he is not there now?)
I love this line, the way KJ delivers it is just brilliant!
Barbie: What happened to your wrist?
Amanda: Oh, well, I went to my self-defense course last night, and my teacher’s name is Joe, though they call him Mad Dog Garrity, anyway, he said to come at him with everything that I had, so I swung my purse and I hit him and I forgot that I had this little, tiny doorknob in there.
Barbie: But what happened to your wrist?
Amanda: He bit me.!!!!!!
This candy striper is a terrible actress.. and just makes KJ look that much better! I have seen her before.. I know! Yep.. checked the credits.. it’s her- but very young- this girl was in Earth Girls are Easy- anyone seen it?(also one of Jim Carey’s first movies before he hit it big) The movie is very lame! but.. it has a hilarious song in it about being blond – and this candy striper girl: Julie Brown sings it!! funny… she isn’t listed as being on SMK in IMDB.. haaaa with this level of acting quality? I can understand why!! ( and she’s not a blond in SMK!)
Thank goodness they needed Linen.. or Amanda never would have solved the case! …Oh and thank goodness the normal elevator doesn’t work so well and they took the freight elevator.. or Amanda never would have solved the case.
Soooo.. as Amanda heads down in the elevator to the lower levels where the laundry is- she begins to put the puzzle together.. and whoa! when she finds a room down on that level with a blue door- that Dr Glaser uses for something- She sneaks in to investigate- Go Amanda! ( what a rule follower.. ahem.. )
Amanda finds a file on Walt Kimball and another on Lee..
haaa.. Lee’s to do list is a doozie!!! but.. actually for someone brainwashed to be precise, it is not a very precise list. Is it?.. which coffee? where you gonna shoot Billy Lee? in the head? or in the ballroom??!! Looks like the next item to tick off is Billy.. uh oh…
Is it just me or is Lee getting into the eyeliner in this episode? At the hospital I thought it was because he lacked sleep.. but .. he still looks dark around the eyes back at the agency.. he’s into the waistcoats this episode.. It is crazy that no one is looking into Walt’s death.. good on you Lee.. I mean- what a guy! I don’t buy that they were great friends, but good on Lee for bothering to think about it..I guess he feels partly responsible because he punched him and thinks he put him in a coma.. it is unbelievable that no one else cares… the agency can be a cruel place..
How long does it take to heal a torn ligament? I thought it was serious? 3 or 4 days and he is back at the agency without even crutches.. or…. a limp???!!! oh well.. this is smk land..
Amanda finds Lee’s room empty and Lee’s nurse passes on that Lee said he would call Amanda? Phoning Amanda wasn’t on Lee’s list! tut.. tut.. Success comes one step at a time Lee!
That Beast Glaser!!!! comforting Janet Kimball and reassuring her they did everything they could..Gag!!! He is soooo nasty!!!!! He isn’t some baddy with a cause – he isn’t doing it for his country.. just plain old horrible revenge and personal satisfaction… I hate him!
Billy, Lee and Francine huddle around the coffee corner which has suddenly appeared for this episode.. What is Francine wearing??!!! ugh..
Ahh Billy has coffee at 11:15.. Lee solves the case.. sort of..only Lee you are part of the case now..
Man… that is one nice lookin suit.. ao agagdrat.. it’s just so distracting!!! concentrate!!
It’s kind of ironic what Lee says here:
Billy: Well, why would Walt Kimball possibly want to kill me?
Lee: He probably didn’t want to. Maybe someone was pulling the strings behind him. It’s possible that someone monkeyed with Walt’s IV to keep him from talking.
‘Pulling the strings?’ What a great pun!!! (maybe it is Lee’s subconscious awareness of what has been done to him! ) Good one SMK writers! Of course at the same time, we also have the irony that Lee is warning Billy someone may try and do it again.. and well.. it’s you pulling Lester’s strings now Lee! (and Dr Glaser pulling Lee’s strings!) nooooooo!!!!
Lee goes on to say:
Lee: You’re still going to make that speech? You’re going to be up there like a sitting duck.
Billy: Yes, and without an opening joke, thanks to you.
Sitting Duck?? !!!BWHAAAAA!! HAAAA!!!! what can I say??!! (not much.. I can hardly catch breath here!) Well done SMK writers I love that!! too funny… sounds like Lee has too many opening jokes Billy! It’s just that neither of you get it! Ask Lester though, he will tell you about Reality!
Lee: Humour me, Billy, will you? If somebody’s going to take a pot shot at you, I’d like to see who it is.
Francine: You’re really going through with this, aren’t you?
Lee: Success comes a step at a time.
Billy: Hey. I like that. That’s going in my speech. If you insist on going with me, order a car, meet me upstairs, because I go on at twelve o’clock.
Ohhh nooo!!!! Lee is going to protect Billy? and now Billy is quoting Lester in his speech? such irony!!
Success comes one step at a time will be going in your speech alright Billy.. but not in the way you imagined!!! Whoo I wonder if the writers did all this double meaning on purpose, or if they stumbled into it- there’s so much that I think they intend it.. and hats off to you smk writers!
Marge: Oh, there you are, Mr. Stetson. Uh, Mrs. King is on the phone, line six. She says it’s important. She’s already phoned here twice this morning.
(Marge goes back to her desk. Francine looks at Lee.)
Francine: Doesn’t that woman realize that you are healed? That you no longer require a Bedside Bluebell?
Lee: Francine, if you could pinpoint the single major reason as to why Amanda King gets to you, what would it be?
Francine: Her complete lack of . . . everything.
[Francine saying this in THAT outfit?? that is truly ironic!!! ]
Lee: Yeah. ( Lee nods and picks up the phone)
That.. is… hard to watch.. Francine? I couldn’t care less.. but Lee???!!!! don’t agree with her!!! and there is Amanda trying to save him and Billy- ugh!!!
It is comforting to know he will one day regret those words! Also.. it is an interesting question of Lee’s.. and I wonder if he asks that question of Francine – ie. why does Amanda get to her?? because- Amanda gets to Lee- a lot!!! and he doesn’t understand why or how she does that!!!! ( Hmm.. with this spin on it, I can make it seem almost like an admission of Lee’s! haaaa… but it really bugs me he goes along with Francine here.. deep breath.. deeeeep…. )
Whoa.. wait a minute what just happened? Lee just told Amanda he is busy and he has to go.. he says Billy is giving a speech over at the Adriana hotel and he is going with him. – He just did an Amanda… telling stuff you would think people don’t need to know.. err but yeah, we know..Amanda does need to know..
Good thing Amanda knew about where the speech was…. or she would never have solved the case..
Oh bummer.. Amanda got busted..right when she was about to tell Lee what she found in the folders! She shouldn’t have used a hospital phone!!! Why you would stay at the hospital to make the call is beyond me.. Ogden takes Amanda down to the blue door room to question her..
Ogden: Oh, as if you didn’t know. Tell me, did you find the data in the files interesting? You know, if the Agency’s chosen you to spy on us, you must be quite prominent in your field.
Ohhh even more irony.. Aaaactually, the agency thinks she ‘lacks everything’….
Your not mad scientists? you killed Walt! Yer Psycho!!Man this Ogden is only too happy to give away all the info!..I guess he is proud of what he is doing in his own sick way! Got it.. pull string.. hear voice.. Lee obeys.. check..Yawn…
Give Amanda the target.. and the time Ogden?.. good psycho doctor! Whooo he forces Amanda into a chair and is about to give her some kind of gas.. but Amanda whacks him with a swinging light – way to go Amanda!!! She sends Ogden flying but good.. haaa I only wish Lee and Francine could have seen it.. and she grabs Lester keeping her head as she runs out the door.. the chase is on.. Ogden and Glaser are looking for her..
Amanda steals an Ambulance?? How’s that for a rule follower Lee! Take that back Pal!! Yeee haaaa..
Errr Yeeeee…. whoa… chase goes on a while.. yawn yawn…
Billy is the head of the investigative services department.. hmm..
The suspense in the ballroom is really intense I think they did really well. Even though I knew it was going to be ok.. because the acting was so good maybe..
Just to add a bit more suspense.. Amanda forgets that the whole reason she is holding the lame duck is to have Lee hear it’s voice and obey it..
Oh Amanda!! you broke the cord!!! argh!!! (nice touch!!! pile that suspense on!!)
You see the little smile he gives her when he comes out from under the trance?? awh…. This is the best part of this whole scene for me- and we see it for what a split second??? argh!!!! Oh well.. thanks to technology I can take a pic of it and look at it all day long now SWOOOOON!
Billy looks confused.. but then happy… but then did he see the gun or what? Just what did he think was going on the whole time he just stood there and watched?? (Interesting to note Lee is holding the gun in his right hand – and he is left handed- ohhh that’s why Billy wasn’t concerned – he knew Lee wouldn’t hit him anyway ) -oh who knows! but well Billy you now owe Amanda a big thank you too.. she has saved both Lee’s life, and yours!!
Oh.. I see the therapy for Lee to cope with his hospital experience was to send him back all over again huh?? poor Lee.. Even I feel sorry for him! Does Lee or Billy even thank her ?? noooo!!!! (well at least this week Billy calls her Mrs King and not ‘the king woman’!)
Amanda gets the last word:
Billy: Alec just phoned, uh, and now that Glaser’s been arrested and his license pulled, the results of the test that he gave you are invalidated.
Lee: Billy, come on, don’t even kid around like that.
Billy: They’re expecting you at the hospital in the morning.
(He looks to Amanda for help. Amanda backs up into the elevator, then looks down at her clothes.)
Amanda: I’ll just get this uniform pressed.
[Didn’t Amanda’s mother ever teach her to never walk backwards into an elevator??? that freaks me out!]
Atta girl Amanda! Success comes one step at a time……
Hope you enjoyed this episode as much as I did!!! Please feel free to share any comments you would like Was anyone as bugged by Lee and Francine’s insult as I was?? And.. hey what do you think they did with the duck after it was all over? Was Lee de-brain-washed??? weird!!!
