We continue this episode with Penny remarking to Amanda that Rheza has been meeting with Bo for two hours.. Penny tells Amanda their marriage is being disturbed by fights about Bo’s oil lease.. and she worries the problem isn’t the oil lease, it’s her marriage..
Amanda: Maybe it’s not. Maybe if you could stop being the prince and the princess and just be Penelope and Rheza once in a while, maybe be alone. Maybe that would help. When, when I was married and things weren’t going so well, I had this umm sexy nightgown.
Amanda: Yeah. My ex-husband liked it so, things weren’t going so well, I’d put it on. And, uh, he had this uh, this concoction, this hot mulled wine, he’d make it and he would bring it to bed, and then things would just kind of get better.
Penelope: Yeah. Well, Amanda, do you know, I didn’t even think to pack a sexy nightgown?
Amanda: It could be better without the sexy nightgown.
I find it a little bit bizarre how Amanda is giving marital advice to Penny.. Amanda is divorced.. in the long run, the sexy nightgown didn’t fix everything.. and.. I will leave it at that! I do find it really funny that Lee chooses that moment to stick his head around the curtains of the door…
I wonder what he heard? I can only guess nothing (unfortunately!) as if he had heard he would have known Penny was there and not to look in.. but.. as it is.. Lee the super spy- chooses to come to Amanda’s door very late at night.. and doesn’t check to see if it’s all clear.. Mr ‘Don’t look at me’ thinks this is ok? LOL!! It is not ok to look at someone at a party and exchange a few words.. but it is perfectly fine to turn up alone at someone else’s room late at night? derrrr Lee…
I love how when Penny sees Lee she says: Ohhhhh hoooooo hoooo!!! and Amanda responds: This is not an ohhhh hoooo hoo!
Penelope: So, why don’t you please just get started and I’ll start having fun, huh? I am going to bed. Just wait a few discreet moments and give ‘er the gas! Goodnight!
Amanda: Does Princess Di talk like that?
Great line!! Apparently Princess Di did talk like that.. LOL!
Amanda (without hesitation): Not that cute.
(love that Amanda looks him up and down when she says that!) You go girl!! Lee being cute is not an answer to everything you know.. In response to this – Lee seems to quietly just look at her for a moment.. and then he realises what they are talking about and moves on to business!
Hmmm Lee is assuming the sniper was trying to kill the prince – fail Lee! He was aiming for Penny.. After all she is the one trying to block Bo’s oil rights.. Lee fills Amanda in on the Endicott link..even more reason to be wary of Bo and his ranch… but Amanda’s room is bugged.. why doesn’t Lee check for Bugs? He knows Bo Johnson is dirty.. and this is his ranch.. sometimes I am surprised Lee manages to stay alive..
We see Bo and his sidekick: Earl the beer gut, Listening in on Lee and Amanda.. eww these guys are so slimy and awful.. and to think they were listening to Penny and Amanda talk about their sex lives.. eww ewwwww! The big beer gut in the foreground as they listen in is a great shot- LOL! (Great prop radio by the way- see the panel move and slip when he ‘turns it off’??!!! soooo fake looking!! Maybe the huge gut is to distract us from it!)
Next thing we see is the fake cliff all set to give way.. oh yes it will look like a total accident when the horse runs to it, and Penny goes over the edge.. All those beams of wood and the blanket there that are holding up the fake cliff? they will just blend into the rocky creek below.. no one would wonder what they are doing there?.. ahem… dumb baddies.. Interesting.. while cursing Penny, Bo uses her maiden name.. she did marry Rheza, whether you like it or not!!!
Uh oh.. headband alert! Penny and Amanda seem to be identically dressed! Why is that? to make it easier on the stunt rider?!
Poor Penny.. it would be really horrible to think the person you had been confiding in was being paid to spy on you.. Amanda isn’t technically an agent.. so she isn’t a “G man”.. but at the same time, she was telling Lee stuff about Penny.. it is a messy situation all round isn’t it..
Amanda: I am not a G-man!
Bo: I never contradict a lady
(Noooooooooooooo.. Bo just kills them! )
la la laa..Lee goes searching for clues.. all by his lonesome.. yes all that security at that fancy party seems to have disappeared and it’s just little ole Lee on Bo’s ranch– Yes Ma’am!
Lee’s little boy Timmy?? hmm.. what about Tommy and Tammy Lee? I love that he uses that name again.. does he do it again after this? I wish he would.. He and Amanda’s imaginary children
Sorry but as if!!! -As if the baddies would blow up Willis Parker, but leave his hat with his name printed in it on his bed to be found???!!! dumb baddies..
Brave and crazy Amanda getting on spirited Diablo!
Lee gets busted.. oh dear.. how will this all end hmmm???? my concentration tends to wane about now…
When Amanda goes to get onto Diablo and she ends up going over the horse and down the other side – that looks real! How did KJ film that with her ankle really busted? It must have really hurt her- poor KJ what a trooper!.. that soooo doesn’t look like Amanda or Penny going fast!! Amanda catches up with Penny- faster than she would have liked! but Penny helps her to stop her horse..
Love Amanda’s explanation for getting on the horse ‘ I thought it was like driving a car.’
Amanda amandarambles to Penny explaining she is her friend not a g-man : this relationship with Mr Stetson is really very secret. My family doesn’t even know about it. You know in public when he talks to me he won’t even look at me. Look straight ahead. Won’t even look at me. You know well, about last night-
Penny cuts her off here to tell her she believes her.. but.. Amanda never gets to explain about last night- from what Amanda says about Lee here you would think they are secretly together and no one knows!!! tee heeee… interesting way Amanda puts it..
Uh oh.. Penny switches horses with Amanda – Love what Penny says here: I tell you, I just feel a little silly, that’s all. I mean, here I am encouraging you to get something going with Mr Stetson and . . . you’ve been having an affair with him all along.
Amanda: Huh????!!!! (ROFL!!! That’s what it sounds like Amanda!!)
Check out Lee Mr Cool being held captive by Earl the beer gut.. So calm.. so zen.. sitting there talking away waiting for the right moment to make his move.. smooth.. ( Nobody puts Lee in a corner! ) Dumb Earl tells Lee all he needs to know for him to stop the attempt on Penny’s life..
Lee errr I mean Lee’s stunt double, decides to make his move and does a groovy roll onto the floor to kick Earl.. It looks pretty ridiculous.. Lee looking all in control and confident and then the next second you see the guy rolling onto the floor dressed as Lee isn’t even Lee.. rofl… I just love smk and it’s stunt doubles! ( maybe it’s a bit like the hulk.. Lee morphs into another person when he is stunt action Lee!! teee heeee)
Hmm seems Earl even morphs into a different man too when he comes under attack.. LOL!
Not Lee.. and not Earl!! It is embarrassingly obvious it isn’t!! His hair is much blonder.. and seems to be a bit curly!!.. so this fake Lee gets thrown out a window, and rolls down onto the ground behind the jeep.. and a second later our real Lee (whoa.. but Lee isn’t real either? really is he??!!! My head hurts…..LOL) pops up looking ready to go with the perfect hair! It is too funny!!!
Bo has headed out to find Penny on the horse and blow the whistle to send the white horse off to the fake ledge.. He finds them and blows the whistle.. I guess not realising it was Amanda on the horse – maybe that explains the similar outfits..
Whoo look! seconds before Lee is to jump out of the moving Jeep- his hair becomes Lighter and curlier again! The Lee Hulk returns and out he jumps from the Jeep stopping Amanda’s horse from going to the fake ledge. The jeep goes over the edge- and boom!
Amanda’s little speechless demonstration of what happened with her hands is really cute.. Mmmm… does she get to share the horse with Lee for the ride home????!!!
Love how Amanda gives Lee back the horse!! Penny just silently laughs at the two of them – I would have loved to see Lee tell Penny about Bo and his plot.. drat.. we didn’t get to see it. I would have loved to have seen Rheza find out about his friend trying to kill his wife.. but he sees to have disappeared!
Hey!!! We didn’t even get to see Bo get his comeuppance.. double drat! If we are going to have to sit through a big Lee action scene we may as well see the baddie of the week ( the BOTW!) end up in a world of pain!!!!
Whoo I love this tag!
Penelope: Listen, make sure you write, okay?
Amanda: I will.
Penelope: And boy, I’ll find out how things work out with you and Mr Stetson.
Amanda: It’s not what you think.
Penelope: Oh, sure.
It is a shame we don’t see Penny again, their farewell is sweet..
Penny walks away and Lee comes and stands next to Amanda, they watch Penny and Rheza leave.
Amanda responds: she was under a lot of pressure. (Awesome response… Amanda is my hero!!)
Lee: Amanda, when you’re undercover, it is not good procedure to look at me until the assignment is officially over. ( love how Amanda snaps her head away annoyed at Lee – I’m right there with you Amanda!)
Lee continues: Does the, uh, princess know you’re working with us?
Amanda: No, but I had to have a reason why you were outside my window last night.
Lee: Ah, what did you come up with?
Amanda: I didn’t come up with anything, she did.
(The car starts driving away. Amanda waves again. Lee does, too.)
Lee: Okay, what did she come up with?
Amanda: She thinks we’re having a thing.
(Lee turns his head and looks at her.)
Lee immediately turns to look away from Amanda because he has been busted!
Amanda puts her stern face back on for him and he turns away again trying not to smile but giving in eventually – ROFL! I love this tag.. Amanda gets Lee good!!!! It is nice to see that not only does Amanda teach him a lesson.. but she makes him laugh too! I really like this tag!
Interesting to me that she calls Lee ‘Scarecrow’ here.. I have the impression that she doesn’t call him that much at all – will be interesting to keep watch and see when she uses that name again..
Also, interesting to compare this final moment with the whole discussion in There Goes the Neighbourhood:
Amanda: No! I mean . . . I would feel guilty. You know? Like I was . . . having a thing. Or something. You know?
Lee: A “thing”?
Amanda: Yes, you know. A thing.
Lee: Like an affair?
Amanda: Yes. That kind of a thing.
Great to see this moment revisiting ‘the thing’ ! – with Lee again saying ‘ a thing?’ only this time Lee knows what Amanda means by ‘ a thing’! tee heee.. which is why his head snaps around so fast to look at her forgetting his strategy of not looking at Amanda.. LOL!!
I would love to hear your thoughts it you would like to share them!!
Thanks so much for reading!!
