Lee and Amanda are shown to their room.. I know it’s a cover.. but I still love to hear Lee call Amanda Darling and Amanda call Lee sweetheart! The script has Amanda cringing at Lee’s use of an endearment, but here we see no evidence of it- I’m glad
Lee: Oh, look at this. Darling, look at this terrific view.
Amanda: Oh, that’s really beautiful, isn’t it, sweetheart?
I Lee responds: Yeeeaaaaaasssss. Yes.
He is soo cheesy and over the top I love it! So cheesy! Amanda lowers her gaze though when he looks at her.. All this gushing Lee is a bit of a shock! I can understand why she would have trouble with it!
Lee tips the Bellman who then leaves the room.. Amanda immediately starts in with: OK. Don’t you think we should talk about-
and Lee pulls out what looks like a cigarette case with an antenna and gives
her a look that says ‘official spy business going on here!’ – and he finishes her sentence with
..‘ dinner? If you don’t mind darling I’d like to go down just a little early. I worked up quite an appetite on my drive.’ banter banter.. insert coupley banter.. tee hee.. Is it just me or is it really nice to see a Lee wearing a wedding ring?!
Hey this is interesting.. I went back to the car scene and arrival to check- when Amanda pulls Lee to one side to ask if he should be using his real name, He is already wearing his wedding ring! wouldn’t it have been a hoot if Amanda had noticed!
See?!! Lee wasn’t wearing it when he said Francine’s jaw was out to here.. when did he put it on?! Anyway, back to the room!
Lee continues: The room’s not bugged.
whoo Looks like Lee was about to head out when he realises Amanda is rumaging somewhere and calls out to her: What are you looking for? Amanda reappears..
Amanda: My room.
[Amanda is not happy! See the sudden flash of panic on Lee’s face when he sees her expression? Lol.. he knows she is not happy!!]
Lee: Well, this is your room.
Amanda: Then where is your room? [Lee lets out a huge sigh.. I think he was hoping this would not be an issue- and totally kidding himself! ]
Lee: It’s also my room. It’s our room. [Lee seems to be struggling for patience here..]
Amanda: Oh, no.
Lee: Amanda, I’m going to take a look around while you’re dressing for dinner.
Amanda: Oh, no, wait, it’s too early for dinner. It’s only five-fifteen.
Lee: We have to be down in the lobby before six o’clock.
Amanda: Oh. Well, don’t you think that we should discuss the accommodations? I mean, do you know what I’m talking about? There aren’t enough . . . accommodations. [Another huge sigh from Lee here.. suffer Lee]
Lee: Later, okay?
[Lee heads to the door]
Amanda: How much later?
[Lee has had enough! This look he gives her absolutely cracks me up!! Lee, she is not going to let this go- you can’t avoid this and she has a say in this!!]
He gives Amanda a backward glances as he heads out the door- like: take a chilll pill Amanda! Well Lee’s got a lot to learn!!!
Amanda: Later means never.
The script is missing that last fabulous line of Amanda’s.. I wonder if it was a KJ ad lib..
I love that Amanda is not ok with sharing the room with Lee, and that she doesn’t just go along with it and not create a fuss- she is just quietly adamant that this is not ok. Amanda is willing to go along with alot- let’s face it.. ALOT! In the name of national security.. but she is not willing to go along with this!!!
I would love to hear if others agree with this or have other views- please share! but I feel like Lee is a bit exasperated with Amanda for not just going along with his plans- he keeps hoping she will change her mind.. he doesn’t listen to her when she says no here. He avoids it.. postponing things and hoping she will acquiesce in my view! I really admire Amanda for her stance.. and how she conducts herself.. Man I love this episode!!
Lee takes a stroll down by the pool.. and who should shout out ‘Hi’ to him?? but a very bad girl! Wow.. this spy stuff is easy… you just walk along and they approach you and let you know they are there and make a play for you! Soooo do you guys think Lee is taken in by Valerie here?
The pool boy fills in the gaps.. Valerie is Mrs Tuck Tucker.. Lee’s heard of Dr Tucker? Man.. is there anyone Lee hasn’t heard of? LOL! Lee is a senator’s son.. why would he say he’s heard of him.. doesn’t that lead to suspicion? hey, what do I know.. Whhoooo hooo how good is it to hear Lee say ‘my wife and I?!’
Lee: Of course, I’ve heard of Dr Tucker. Perhaps you and your husband would join us for dinner one night.
Lee: My wife and I. [swoon!]
Valerie: Oh. Sure. If he shows up. But you know how unreliable geniuses can be.
Lee walks off promising to look them up when Mr Tucker gets there.. (personally, I don’t see Lee being taken in by her at all but YMMV!)
ROFLMAO at the saxophone we hear as Valerie bosses the pool boy.. so funny! [Very Jessica Rabbit!] Ok ok.. we get it she’s smokin!!! Ahhh smk, it’s so subtle! I love it!! whwhahaa! What a sharp contrast with Amanda wanting her own room eh..
On that saxophone note.. hoo haaaa.. I will leave it there! Did I mention I love this episode??!!!
Love to hear your thoughts! byeee back with more soon!
