Uh oh.. David Benson knows his ex spoke to a female agent about his alimony.. the game is up! He wants Viktor to take care of Lee Stetson, but Viktor won’t.. and David will have to do the job himself..
Oooohhhhhhh.. its that time of the episode where I get a little bored..David is the Mole.. hurry up
Amanda knows for sure David is the Mole.. and is searching for Lee to tell him it has been confirmed. She tries to find him at the agency, but she has missed him – Uh oh!! Amanda actually lies to Billy here when he asks for the report.. that would have been hard! (maybe it is easier when you have official identification!) Billy says to Amanda: Is that his report? It’s due at five o’clock.
Didn’t Billy ask Amanda if she was holding Lee’s report Yesterday? He did!! Here look:
Billy: Good. On my desk, five o’clock.
My goodness Billy has such authority!!! Billy thinks its groundhog day.. Anyway Amanda heads down to Ned’s to find Lee.. (guess Lee isn’t going to Monks anymore since he got stabbed outside with that awfully sharp bendy knife )
Lee is sitting at the bar chatting to Francine.. Seems Francine feels she should explain why she has been acting so stressed out – Lee doesn’t understand!- Here comes that theme of friendship again!
Francine: But I never fall apart like that, I mean, it’s just not like me, and so I thought I’d tell you why.
Lee: Well, how come? It’s none of my business.
Francine: How come? Because you’re my friend. I should have told you something before, but I was — I was too upset. My mother had surgery.
Lee: Oh, I’m sorry.
Francine: Major surgery.
Lee: That’s some pretty heavy stuff, huh?
Francine: Heavy? You want to hear heavy? I mean, here I am with a gun in my hand, chasing after a Bulgarian spy. And the only mother I have is lying in Intensive Care three thousand miles away. I ask you, is that guilt or is that guilt?
Lee: Is she all right now?
Francine: Yeah. She’s just great.
Lee: Ah, good.
Francine: She’s terrific.
As strange as it is to see Francine acting like a real person with feelings I think this moment is important- someone else pointing out to Lee that he is actually friends with some of his colleagues and its ok! When she explains they are friends, he doesn’t rebuff her, he supports her- which is great progress! Now.. if only he could get comfortable with being a friend to Amanda too!
At the same time, I really don’t know why it was kept secret about her mother.. ( the script had Francine undergoing a biopsy! whoa, now that I can understand being kept a secret.. especially when I consider how back in the 80s this was a bit of a taboo topic – I don’t remember this myself as I was too young early 80s.. but I have heard..and how KJ’s breast cancer was kept a secret ) Anyway, emotional Francine just freaks me out!! .. I have no affection for the woman!
David turns up and joins Francine and Lee. Francine makes her apologies and David the Mole shows his true identity.(Yes! out come his claws!! )
When David is asking Lee about Amanda and asking how they are working on the mole thing together.. – watch Lee’s reaction here- this is Lee when he is lying! hehehee.. he is all charm.. all smiles and laughing. Also, he waves his arms around a lot (hmm kinda like how he did with Amanda at the museum when he was telling them they weren’t emotionally involved!! ) Lee is a very cute Liar!!
Lee knew David could be the mole.. so why does David manage to take him by surprise here? hmm.. Poor Lee here.. it must be just terrible to have known someone for 4 years.. ( yes, even been his friend ) and then have them pull a gun on you like that.. No wonder Lee has a tough persona that he hides behind.. he is in one dangerous and heart hardening business…
Hey why is Lee wearing a different suit than what he wore to the baseball game?? Is this a different day? Ohhh this really is the next day! I wasn’t completely sure.. Billy really does want Lee’s report on his desk by 5 yesterday and today! LOL..
Yep, Lee still hadn’t figured it was Davey – Mr none of these people are my friends.. but Amanda (or as David calls her ‘our little lady from the sticks’ ) figured it out – and sees people as friends- Gee maybe not being friends isn’t workin Lee? ( and if he had been a closer friend to Ronnie, he would have either known about him winning the Irish sweepstakes or he would have asked him about it!) Whooo Lee looks gorgeous when David is complimenting him on how cool and calm he is.. (as gorgeous as he is.. It is a little cheesy how people gush over Lee’s mask- when.. it is obvious it’s a mask – and 2 seconds earlier David said he had known Lee for 4 yrs and can tell when he is bluffing.. ugh! still- an excuse for an ultra close up of super tough Lee? ok.. I’ll go with it!!! )
Whooo David.. you really don’t want to come between Lee and his coffee!!!hmmm..
Well, Amanda sees Lee and David pull away and she knows Lee is in major trouble. She quickly pursues them and finds them on a highway.. what to do now Amanda? Drat the lack of Mobile phones (cell phones for Americans!) back then!
Amanda chooses to overtake them.. Lee will know it is her car immediately.. only problem is David seeing her.. no wait! Random hat is sitting next to Amanda on the passenger seat.. phew for that!! hehehee.. actually to me it looks like it could be Phillip’s (at least it is not Dean’s sooo happy he is gone!!).. a bombers hat would have made more sense. but ok.. I’ll go with it! –Notice in the shots with Amanda putting the hat on and taking it off the background is completely wrong! LOL.. they must have gone to the warners carpark and filmed it as a pick up when someone noticed – oh yeah! Wouldn’t David recognise Amanda as she passed them??!!! haaa
Sooo.. Amanda over takes them.. ( I swear Lee has a secret look of admiration in his eyes when he sees Amanda’s car in front of him – he knows she is on it!! )
Problem is.. they’re so caught up in helping Barbie with the red sports car (wasn’t her car pink? ).. -protect and serve! all the blondes!!
[LOL… a Red corvette! I bet they reused David’s Red Corvette from earlier!! How many red corvettes can there be?!] Love how Amanda speeds past the cops, honks her horn at them and they don’t even notice.. so she has to turn around and do a donut in front of them basically and this finally gets their attention! Haaaaa.. It’s so funny to see Amanda goody two shoes doing donuts in front of the police! haaaa.. Off the cops go in pursuit of Amanda. and we see them pull her over….
Lee and David pass busted Amanda (hope she put her hat back on – ooorrr wouldn’t David see her?!) and they themselves turn into a side road..uh oh it is now time to do the deadly deed… hurry Amanda!
David opens his door and Amanda comes along with her car at that moment and takes out his door.. Poor Station wagon!!
Lee and David start fighting and then David takes off with Lee running after him.. to cut the contractually obligated action ending short.. Lee.. err I mean Super Lee the human fly, takes a running dive at David running along the creek.. and they both end up in the water.. with Lee the better man at the end of the day finishing of David with only 1 punch.. whoo hoo !!short and sweet.. goodo! ..
So basically the police arrive just after Lee starts running after David.. they pretty much do nothing! hehehee.. Except take away the bad guy… err I mean take the dirt bag downtown! oh well.. I’ll go with it!
It is interesting that when he punches David, Lee tells him: That was for Ronnie! Your partner, and my friend! Again highlighting the theme of this episode: friends- I love that Lee makes it clear that David was Ronnie’s partner- but it was Lee who was actually his friend!
Maybe Lee was denying friendships because of the loss of his own partner just before he met Amanda?? [ Later in we’re off to see the wizard, we learn of his loss of Dorothy too..??]
The guy is growing.. little by little!! Ha! and to top it all off- as Lee hands David over to the cops he tells them ‘ Take care of my friend here huh!’ as he motions to one of them to take David away – LOL.. I think Lee uses ‘friend’ here with irony now.. he is getting use to this word no?! Suddenly using it everywhere haaaa
Lee: Yeah, same with me. Listen, how’d you get them to believe they had to follow you here?
Amanda: Oh, I just showed them my government identification.
Lee: Uh, Amanda, you don’t have any government identification.
Amanda: Oh, sure I do. Of course I do. Don’t you remember? I’ve got my badge. Just showed them my badge.
Another job well done Amanda!! where would Lee be without you!!!! Lee can’t quite believe it.. she is a very resourceful person..
he smiles a little and just shakes his head..
he doesn’t know what to say!
Lee, I can help with that… repeat after me: ‘Wow! That was great thinking Amanda. Job Well Done!!!!’ (and then.. you have the option of adding at the end either: ‘and would you marry me and have my children???!!!’ OR simply: ‘kiss me’ would do nicely also… )
Tag Time! Lee and Amanda are cruising the streets in his Porsche.. Amanda is worrying about the agency paying for the body work that needs to be done on her car… when she still hasn’t gotten the money back for her blue shoes and they were a lot cheaper! Lee seems to be in a relaxed, good mood – driving around with Amanda
Scarecrow, this is Blue Leader! (Amanda mumbles: where? where is Blue Leader? and Lee just waves a hand to say I don’t know!)It is so funny to see Amanda react to Blue Leader’s surprise appearance.. a lot like Lee did! Viktor was nabbed at the airport- hurray! David sends them both his best huh? who cares!Wow… Blue Leader says the agency is proud of them both.. well.. that is quite the feather in both of their Bombers caps!! I wonder if Billy ever found out about it..
Lee: Amanda. (He clears his throat and looks to the mirror. The limo is gone. Lee turns back to Amanda.) He’s gone.
Amanda: No, no. No, no. I think we’re on hold.
(She sits silent for a moment. Lee smiles.) Amanda continues: Sir?
Blue Leader, sir?
(Lee bursts out laughing!)
Again, Lee can’t help but laugh and laugh heartily at Amanda’s antics!! It is a really cute ending.. Isn’t it fantastic that he laughs his head off at her.. he doesn’t get mad, or impatient.. I guess now the pressure is off and he can afford to laugh huh..
Also, by pure coincidence Lee has just discovered the secret to keeping Amanda quiet – tell her Blue Leader has her on hold!!
Love love love to hear the thoughts of you readers out there in the great big cyberspace!! byeee for now!
