We see Amanda arriving back at Lee’s place with Alexi’s things.. Hmmm Amanda lets herself back into Lee’s apartment.. she has a key! hehheee I wonder if she gives it back…
The look on Lee’s face is too cute when Amanda finds out what they bought at the shop.. he knows he shouldn’t have gotten that rubbish and he is being suckered but he wants to spoil him and be liked.. awh!!! and Amanda can see this..
Then, Lee defends his being a big softie by how hard Alexi has had it… and then he launches into what has been going on at ACM plant.. the satellite project.. blah blah.. why does Amanda need to know this? It must be because it is her case too ahem… Actually, I think maybe Lee is trying to change the subject and it seems to work.. for now!
Love how Amanda just takes his money – no problem spending his money with Alexi! heheheee…
I think Lee liked to have a little tease with Amanda here to level out things.. he has just been busted spoiling Alexi and I think he was a little vulnerable about it… so ha haaaa crack a joke and tease Amanda.. I love the laugh he gives as he leaves.. he has a great laugh.. and that smile?…. ooh swoon!!!
On to the agency… The lug wrench bar??? now that sounds like a masculine hang out!! I see Billy is still in the ugly knit cardy.. only this time it is sleeveless.. oh come on Billy.. let Jeanne dress you!
Lee: But I wonder what all this has to do with Alexi’s folks.
Billy: Tell the King woman to keep her ears open. And by the way, how’s she getting along with Alexi?
Lee: You know Amanda. She’s got motherhood carved on her bones. She’s having the time of her life.
Ok.. ‘the king woman’? Billy!!grrrr shame on you ‘the cardy man’!
Lee says ‘You know Amanda?’ Actually Lee.. Billy doesn’t.. he just knows “the king woman” reow!
Err.. am I hearing this right? Did Lee just say he knows Amanda? and um.. kinda compliment her?? OH MY!!!!! Isn’t it fabulous to see him give a proud smile about Amanda’s mothering skills?? swoon…(err even though it isn’t really true… Alexi is a tough kid to enjoy, he doesn’t want to be enjoyed!) I think Lee is happy to admit Amanda has these skills – as they are nothing to do with usual agency work!
This bow-tie wearing guy at the arcade is the scary Mr Wilson?? That we heard about in the beginning? haa!! He tells Alexi his parents are safe for the moment.. if he sneaks back there later and helps them with the computer or something.. Alexi tries the sad eyes he tricked Lee with- Pleeease don’t hurt my parents! but.. Mr Wilson is unmoved and threatens to do more than just hurt them..
Happy hour is 4-6pm!! A 2 hour happy hour??? haa hehehee.. someone can’t count.. that is too funny!
Ricky Joe err I mean Lee drinks a hacksaw.. don’t worry.. it’s the name of a drink apparently..errr is that a real drink?
Dotty and her erogenous zones are too funny! Dr Bain was mentioned in If thoughts could kill and now Amanda seems to be figuring out who he is- when she knew who he was 2 episodes ago – ah… episode order change alert!
Love the way Phillip says : Naaaaah, the Feds got him in protective custody.
Like he knows all about that..
Alexi won Jamie’s bike in a crap game?? lol!!!! Why doesn’t it register that the kid is very clever… and that maybe he is the one they could be after? hmmm..he is probably too annoying for anyone to notice!
The big sister program is a good idea.. good one Amanda.. at least that one kind of made sense..
Lee and Amanda’s phone conversation is really clever and funny with the double meanings..and Dotty listening in the whole time… great writing!!! Love how Amanda manages to get another little dig in about his hellhole. err I mean apartment! I think Amanda is stuck- she has to look after Alexi, she can’t tell Lee she wants him to go when Dotty is listening!
It is great when Amanda finally gets tough with Alexi..
Alexi: You know, you’re tougher than the Fed with the moldy cheese.
Amanda: Really? I want that in writing.
-that is kind of cool!
Alexi visits the baddies to do a little research on Ricky Joe.. check out the clunky keyboard! ha haaa
Ricky Joe Jackson.. what a name..
Back at Amanda’s.. uh oh.. the headband is back… her phone conversation with Dean is rather unromantic isn’t it.. no I miss you or love you.. just.. “I told you you should have taken your poncho!” oh dear..(she’s telling him to take his rain poncho? He is the weatherman who just won an award and she knows better than he does Haaa.) Amanda does manage to at least sound half interested in hearing him talk about his trophy… an aluminum sun.. yawn! Then again, she is a mum and has lots of practice at listening to stuff and sounding interested… LOL.
Love Dotty’s line: Well, how are you and young Dillinger getting along?
Back at the lug wrench..
oh my.. ummm.. I just have to um get this picture out of my head!!! yeee haaa.. ricky joe, you are being very unhelpful!…. maybe a cup of water in my face will help! no wait.. maybe Amanda’s insult coming up will help! hehehee…
Amanda the monkey wrench arrives at the Lug wrench How did Amanda know where to find Lee? Does she know about his cover?? and if she knew where he was- why not just call him!! I know I know.. this way is more fun!
Lee: Now you see why I’m so broke. Most ex-wives just pick up the phone. Not mine. She jumps on a plane.
Good save Lee!
and .. how does she know his name is Ricky Joe? (they must have told her at the agency huh…?)
Lee whispers : Come to my place tonight and we’ll talk. ( I have had dreams about Lee whispering that to me )
Ahhh this is another gold humour moment!!!! I just love the delivery here!!!I love how Amanda shoves the drink in his hand and walks off…. sooo funny!!!! Lee got more than he bargained for didn’t he- Amanda!! you don’t have to call into question his leaving his cowboy boots on!!!! ohhh the shame of it!!!
Ricky Joe is offered $2000- for personnel files by the baddies.. and he comes through for them passing their test.. Their next step is to get Ricky Joe to steal the satellite codes.. only they are going to need to convince him to do it! The baddies say they are keeping Alexi around to verify the codes and once they are in the satellite computers – Alexi and his parents will be ‘blown away’…. uh oh!!
Well that is it for now! I’ll be back soon with Part 3… Hope you are all enjoying the Christmas break!
