Last post, we left the Hungarian Baddie raving about how they must find Magda Petrak.. This guy is a real misogynist! I bet it is the worst of all that it was Magda (a woman!) who fooled them!
The head baddie’s name is ‘Brobich’? .. ohhhh dear!..Surely that name can’t be an accident?? ( just add a t!) Especially because of what he thinks of women! but…this forum is PG.. so I will leave it at that!
This made me laugh:
Sandor: Her Party record has always been impeccable, Comrade Brobich.
Oh yes how suspicious! she was tooo impeccable haaaaa.. (nah.. it was that she was a she!!)
Brobich is just awful… makes me almost feel sorry for what Magda must have had to put up with from him!
Brobich: sometimes it is wiser to keep a few wrinkles in the belly of the people. They hesitate to ask for more. Magda Petrak has enjoyed her stay in this country too much. You haven’t noticed. And now she is asking for even more. There are reasons why a woman has never achieved the inner circle of the Politburo. Do you know what those reasons are? There is an innate softness and corruptibility in women. They’re easily seduced by the decadent luxuries of the west, as Magda Petrak has been seduced.
So the baddies have headed out to scour Washington, looking for the easily corruptible Magda.. (why aren’t they heading straight to the Mall? LOL…)
Back to Amanda’s and Lee is still interviewing Magda.. Dotty starts making her way downstairs.. Amanda throws out Lee.. love it! hehehe.. she even throws his jacket out the door! Magda stays to be ‘observed’ by Dotty!!! Sick Dotty comes and plonks herself on the sofa.. Oh dear.. you’re sick and in your nighty.. you really want to make a new friend??
Magda looks just like Francine.. Dotty has met Francine! The only explanation for Dotty not making the connection with Amanda’s client who has a chimpanzee loves strudel and went to Sarah Lawrence (in saved by the bells) is that she is unwell.. and so she doesn’t see that the two women look exactly alike.. She even assumes initially that Magda is a client! A missed opportunity! oh well..
Dotty: Well, aren’t you two having a cozy time. I hope I’m not interrupting anything. Are you plants or animals? (Magda doesn’t answer) Plants, I’d say. You don’t look like the animal type. – Whahaaaa!
And another great line here:
Dotty: Amanda thinks I may have dingwee fever, but I know it’s just a cold, I was feeling absolutely wonderful yesterday and then it just hit me last night
Magda: then you are contagious, you should contain yourself for the good of others.
Dingwee fever is sweeping the suburbs!!! heheheheee..
This was a rather rude thing of Magda to say to someone she has never met…. but… I agree with her!!! It may be Dotty’s house, but Magda is their guest… I think she should go back to bed!
The boys come home! Phillip is so proud of his second place ribbon for his science project.. (that Jamie helped him with, and no doubt Amanda did too!)
Love how Phillip doesn’t even know who this random woman in his family room is, but he holds up his ribbon and tells her he got second prize! Ahhhh kids.. who wouldn’t be interested in that.. right boys??!!
Whooooo Amanda is absolutely livid with her here.. understandably. This is an interesting insight into Amanda’s character.. she is absolutely furious at Magda, but is calm, and.. Is still smiling!!!!! oh Amanda.. come on tell her what you think! I think she is so shocked and she can’t find the words.. (Hmm Funny, she has no trouble expressing that anger with Lee!) Amanda: How could you say that to a little boy?
Magda: One has a responsibility to children. They should be realists. You — you don’t want your son to be a winner?
Amanda: My son is a winner. Please excuse me.
Amanda goes outside and tells Lee the boys are home, that her family is now miserable and up in their rooms and she no longer has a happy home.. -hurry up and get her out!! Lee is trying to appease Amanda.. but she knows it..
Lee:Look a few more minutes, we’ll wrap it up and she’ll be out of your way.
Amanda: that’s what you said when you first got here! [Good Call!] Now listen, I’m gonna go upstairs and see what I can do about Phillip, I will give you 10 minutes…and there can be no more complications right? nothing can go wrong?
Amanda isn’t buying it.. and Lee lets out the breath he has been holding and shakes his head after she leaves.. he knows she has a point..and her patience is being pushed to the limit!
Back at the agency, Billy is looking for Francine but agent Blye tells him she is out to lunch..
Billy: I’m surprised she didn’t eat anything, I mean she must be pretty exhausted from taking all those bows!
Agent: She did good Billy
Billy: yeah she did very well, unfortunately we’ll never hear the end of it.. LOL …. I love a joke at Francine’s expense as much as the next person.. but come on! ‘She did good Billy.’?? eh?? I mean what did Francine really DO that was so fantastic? She looks like Magda..[what skill does that involve?] Francine stuck in some contact lenses, she wore an ugly wig.. Does that deserve bows? ok ok.. she ran to the limo in heels and got in… whooop de doooo..
Wow.. a magic Hungarian car..when they are talking in the car the windscreen wipers are on.. they turn a corner and …bing! the car is dry – whoooo.. and Bing! they see blonde Magda! Looks like Francine’s car is not magic.. hers gets wet…and stays wet…
Yep, miss super clever spy Francine is going about her daily life without restriction.. even though she looks just like Magda Petrak who only defected this morning and who will have baddies hunting about for her! Gee maybe Francine didn’t realise she looks like Magda huh???!!!! (Billy should have shipped her off to Alaska to hide out.. permanently.. hey! Any excuse would do!! nooo I’m only joking, I would miss Francine and all the snark she brings!! the fashion police moments.. the jewellery made out of stationary supplies.. )
Ok, I’ll finish up here for now.. Thanks for reading!!!! Do you have any thoughts about this you would like to share? any favourite moments? least favourite? what do you think of Magda? Do tell! byeee!
