We re-join the episode with Amanda sitting perched on the edge of a table.. Ahhh looky you can actually see her plaster cast under that bench- trust me it’s there- it’s easier to see when it moves! Cocky Lee approaches Amanda.. Is it just me or does Amanda seem a little nervous when they first talk the next day? Amanda stumbles over his cover name.. and Lee is flirting like crazy.. probably for the benefit of anyone watching.. but..mmmmmaybe not.. I’m pretty sure the kiss is on both their minds.. I like to think Lee is trying to rattle Amanda and test for a response.. hehehee..
Amanda says the code people couldn’t identify a problem with the play Lee photographed –Hmm maybe they should have showed it to people who actually know about Football-on the off chance that it wasn’t just a code?! ( they may as well have showed it to me for all I know about American Football!)
Lee isn’t very modest here when discussing Bela.
Amanda: Billy wants to know if Bela has said anything about Laslo.
Lee: He stopped talking about anything Amanda: He did?
Lee: yeah I’m sorta surprised we were getting to be friends.
Lee: yeah. He probably sensed my athletic background and figured I was someone he could talk to.
Lee: I’m serious!
Amanda: I know..
Oh Lee.. quit now please! Amanda sees right through you! He is too cocky for his own good.. Love how straight after this comment they cut to Crandle and Coach discussing Sandy and how he broke curfew and he doesn’t like to get hit!! and .. he is going to get the cut. ha haaaa…. (I think Lee must prefer to get hit in the pursuit of Justice.. as opposed to the winning of a ball game.. you know??!!) Then Crandle turns to Sandy and tells him to save himself for Sunday- LOL!
Reow!!! girl you are a piece of work flirting like that when he was talking to someone else.. Lee seems a bit confused by this request ( she wants me to what?!) Love how Amanda steps in and takes over.. and freshens up her pompoms for her.. whatever that means!
I love the look on Amanda’s face when she does this – she relishes it!! She’s no doubt thinking of her own cheerleading days! I think it’s funny how Amanda smiles sweetly at the girl and calmly tells her ( Like she is talking to a little girl) ‘ All better now.’ and hands back the pompoms.. yep girl.. it was a dumb request!
Do you think Amanda was jealous? I am thinking she didn’t like it, but that she wasn’t jealous.. it is just rude to exclude Amanda like that.. and then.. she interferes just to annoy Lee and get in the way of his fun! What do you all think??!!! (would have been funny to see Amanda go undercover as a cheerleader!- though a tad difficult to hide the plaster cast then! haaaa.. then again I guess anyone aged more than 20 is too old.. ugh! but Lee can still play??!!!)
Bela approaches Amanda.. Watch the background we see Lee walk off arm around the pom pom blondie.. then, we see Lee surrounded by all the girls fawning over him..! I think it is a photo op for the cheerleaders and players.. I am completely distracted!
Anyone know who is Lionel Baltimore?! The ‘famous’ actor Bela mentions sounding like..
Bela’s laugh is too much! He is a funny little guy! but could he be any more obvious something is wrong? he sees the two goons(BDBG- Badly dressed bad guy- as Cindy would put it – Good one Cindy!!) in the stand keeping an eye on him and Bela immediately reacts.. hmm maybe he was trying to tell Amanda the reporter without telling her.. maybe??!! He is a terrible Liar!! Bela leaves, and Amanda finds him hiding under the stands.. Amanda who we see from behind, suddenly has no plaster cast and much softer hair. uh huh..
Whooo Amanda says to Bela: I’m a reporter, I am trained to notice suspicious people, odd behaviour, bad tailoring. ( bad tailoring?? LOL…Ahhh so she has definitely noticed the goons! – probably taken the agency course: baddie dress sense 101 )
I love how Amanda and Bela have this secret, dangerous conversation under the stands where noise travels and anyone could hear what they are talking about!
They are stumbled upon by Crandle and the Coach.. and oh my.. Bela grabs Amanda and kisses her.. poor girl..!!!
Coach says: Another interview Mrs King?
(Bela seems suddenly taller!! )
Love how the two men look at Amanda with disgust, especially Crandle.. he shakes his head and walks away.. How dare she kiss Bela.. but oh it’s ok to plan to kill Bela in a football play!! Oh and then hire an assassin to kill the prime minster of Leichtenstein!
Amanda says to herself: Get it anyway we can! hooo haaaa!! That’s a racy line for smk!! Amanda’s really finding her spunk with all this ‘reporting’.
Bela Pravik runs into the two goons with no fashion sense(bad tailoring).. then almost immediately, he sees Laslo and the captain Phil walking out of a room.. Bela’s worst nightmare has come to life.. (only thing missing is them smashing his Rod Stewart records)
Why is Laslo shooting at Bela?! I thought he was planning on his being murdered by the football play of death??!! I thought it had to look like an accident?? I can only guess this slight change of plan was because they suspect he blabbed to Amanda..about recognising Laslo? and if that is the case, why don’t they try and take her out too? they just let her go??!!!
Next thing, Lee finds Amanda on the sports oval and asks where she has been .. well kinda demands.. (why?? miss her Lee? worried she is ‘interviewing’ someone else??!!) Maybe he heard the gunshots..? She explains she has been under the stand with Bela and that he is really afraid of something.. probably the goons in the stand.. “I think it has something to do with those guys in the plaid sports coats.” (did she not see Laslo shooting?? or errr hear it? Me confused!!)hmmm.. well like you said Amanda, you are trained to notice bad tailoring!! Me? I am noticing Random open esky lids to hide a plaster cast!
Lee, Amanda and the whole team see Bela jump out of the stadium and go on the run.. Lee runs outside after him.. but instead of finding Bela he spies out Laslo… (dig the xylophone when Laslo pops his head up! tee heee)
Laslo you are busted.. Lee tells Amanda to drive off and tell Billy ‘we’ve spotted Laslo, but Laslo may have spotted Bela’. Lee leaves to search for Bela.. and…Stunt Amanda runs to her car ( back to camera.. of course!) Bela is hiding in Amanda’s car.. (If Bela is hiding, why show yourself while you’re still in the carpark! derrr.. and the two goons see this and know he is with Amanda.. )
Bela: Is alright I fell in bushes, please Burn Rubber!
Lee and Billy are then seen at the agency that night.. trying to work out what is going on.. Umm.. Lee why didn’t you notice that Amanda didn’t speak to Billy like you told her to!!? You would usually notice that.. it is like he has forgotten he said that to her!
Billy’s wearing his casual cardy.. Ohhh and the less said about haughty Francine here the better! (spent two hours at the hairdresser this afternoon francine? you are actually telling them that? sooooo professional! Not!!)
Ahhh I love it when Amanda calls and says: nooo I wasn’t followed I know how to get rid of a tail ( you get training in that Amanda? ) .. He’s right here where I can see him!…
Being driven away in a car by two bad men! and she just drops the phone and leaves Lee hanging.. Lee rushes off to go find Amanda.. possibly wondering if she has been taken too?!
This whole following the bad guys scenario is cute.. Automobile surveillance Refresher.. Amanda puts the cassette tape into her car stereo.. and proceeds to have a conversation with it! hehhee.. Love how she corrects the tape and says: Her!! (whooo go Amanda!!)
Love the red light bit..
tape lady says: Anticipate traffic congestion and obstructions before you encounter them. this of course includes traffic signals. (Amanda sees the red light) So don’t call attention to yourself by running a red light. (Amanda stuffs this one up!)
Thank goodness the tape lady tells Amanda not to get out of her car without back up.. if she didn’t go back to Lee he would have had no idea where she was.. (Doesn’t KJ have the funniest facial expressions?! she is so great!) So Amanda heads back to the phone booth..
Whooo Lee is cranky..( he doesn’t like being worried sick about Amanda!) Amanda arrives back at the phone booth having done the best she could..
good on you Amanda for sticking up for yourself.. she just sounds a little crazy the way she expresses it with her amandarambling..(err mentioning fingers in the chocolate cake is not such a great idea! ) hehhee. Lee you’re just going to have to learn her language..
Hey- what else could she have done? she found out where he was.. and ok so she can’t tell you. but she can show you.. Love how Lee is trying to get a word in: Amanda! Amanda! Amaaanda!!!! ( well done Lee.. he manages to control his temper here.. you can see it is an effort. good boy Lee. I love how he says “oh Amanda.”)
Ok. so we find out the baddies saw Amanda tailing them.. and the baddies are lying in wait for them to come back.. uh oh!! (Hey what is with all the coloured telephones on the table???!!)
Lee and Amanda pull up… and Lee is up to his solo heroics again, loading his gun ready for Battle.
Lee: alright, if I’m not out in 5 minutes, call Billy (Billy being Lee’s back up- not his boss! LOL)
Amanda: Lee are you sure you should go in there alone, I mean it could get dangerous!
Lee: Amanda please, I’m a professional remember? I think I know a little about this. BDBG: Alright hand it over, or your dog food!
Boy Lee finds being sprung here really painful! You can see he is really hurting at having to hand over that gun.. he was just bragging about how good he is.. and now both he and Amanda are in danger.. your turn for oops Lee. (you should have listened to the tape Lee!!!) Lee won’t even look at Amanda until he has handed over the gun.. and then his eyes say sorry…. awh.. big close up on Lee’s sorry face! Wise Amanda… she doesn’t say anything!
That’s it for now!! Will be back soon to see what happens to Lee and Amanda.. will they survive the second hand smoke? Hope you enjoyed this and thanks for reading!! Any thoughts? Please share!!!
