Princess Valoska’s gate crasher has made a getaway and her mansion is swarming with activity.. whoo cops.. we don’t see those on smk very often Billy rushes over to Lee to find out what happened.. Seems the assassin got away- but Lee doesn’t understand why and is a bit down on himself for letting him..
Antov the assassin has arrived home to cranky Sigrid – She can’t believe he screwed it up.. I’m with you girl! ( err not that I wanted him to succeed!) She is sure she would have done a better job ( anyone could have! )
Antov responds: If it was you it wouldn’t have made a difference! There was an agent there! Yep!!! and this agent knew how to close a door!!!
[very special agency training for that ] ROFL!!! nothing stopped Antov from opening it again I guess if he had, he might have hurt someone . And how is it Antov knew Lee was an agent? he could have been a cop?? Maybe Lee’s suit gave him away .
Sigrid counters: The agent should have died!!!! [oops.. glad it wasn’t you there after all Sigrid!]
Back to the Princess’ mansion and Amanda is comforting Ursula that her bullet wound is only superficial..
Hurray for Lee! The princess acknowledges Lee saved them Love this line of Ursula’s: Political emigres are accustomed to being shot at. It makes us seem important. I — I shall dine out on this for weeks. Love it!! Amanda asks to have a quiet word with Lee.. Amanda tells Lee the schlurper was in the room.. though it would not be a huge shock because they now know the target is the princess.. still at least it narrows it down to the people in the room!
I love the look on Amanda’s face when she tries and copies the sound the schlurper makes!!! hehehehehee
Lee: are you sure?
Amanda: pretty sure. I’m fairly positive. I’m, I would say it sounded like the sound and yes I’m… pretty sure.
I think Lee should have asked her to make the sound again, just to be sure
Lee is all happy at Amanda- hurray!
Lee: you make a terrific witness Amanda, really.
That.. sounded like a compliment?? oh my!!!!
Lee thinks checking for bridgework will give away what they have on them.. I say.. What do they have? they don’t really have anything! .. just that the schlurper was in the room.. the least you would do is have Amanda hang out with the princess under some kind of cover, so she can keep a listen out for the sound again.. no?
Oh and call me crazy, but hasn’t Amanda heard the Schlurper’s voice? why can’t she identify the man by his voice? rather than by his bridgework? Oi!
Whoo Lee grabs Amanda’s arm on the way in again.. ahhhh.. hey this is a bit weird.. as they go back inside we see that same portrait of the guy with the arrogant expression Dotty was looking at.. only it seems to have changed location in the room – and is now much closer to the door????
LOL.. the table under it is a bit different too.. maybe the princess sold the first one!
The princess refuses to believe one of her friends has betrayed her, ( staff????!!!!) and so she refuses protection inside her house. Billy suggests they protect her house from the outside.. good thinking..
Lee suggests to Billy that they do a local house by house search for the heck of it- because the shooter got away so quickly.. but Billy says most of the houses have diplomatic immunity.
All of Lee’s options have dried up.. and he’s disappointed the assassin got away.. time for an Amanda pep talk for Lee-she has a sixth sense for when he needs one!
Amanda: Well, I just want you to know that I know that . . . well, you’ll do everything that you can to protect her and that she’s under the best possible care that she could be.
Lee: Come on, I’ll take you home.
I love Lee’s hair in this ep! even if it is a side part.. it moves! (Amanda didn’t drive herself there?? But Dotty knew she was going to the Princess’ for lunch! )
Could Lee smile any bigger???(love how he has a big smile and then looks down a bit bashful to get a hold of himself!!) He is enjoying that he has her around now… his own little cheering squad who is a great witness.. yes yes, I am sure that is all it is right? Nooo he couldn’t possibly be attracted to a housewife..right???!!!!
Later that night… Amanda is helping the boys with their homework, and Dotty is wanting to hear all about the lunch – bite by bite! Seems Amanda has been dodging Dotty’s questions and Dotty is beginning to get suspicious! Dotty knows herself well doesn’t she!!! Dotty: If I had had lunch with the princess, you wouldn’t be able to get me to shut up! Call me crazy, but Amanda’s hair looks much longer here than it did at the Princess’ lunch.. I guess it was hair- raising stuff after all ???
LOL- this has got to be the biggest under-exaggeration of the episode: Amanda on the lunch “Well, it wasn’t exactly dull! ”
Amanda changes the subject by asking how Dotty’s driving lesson went… Oh wait, I take it back.. Dotty does not know herself!
Dotty: Howard says my problem is that I am nervous, which is very strange because I am the least nervous person around.
Uh huh…. good one Dotty.. poor Howard, if I was in a car with Dotty I would be clenching my fists too!!! No I’ll change that.. I wouldn’t be in the car when Dotty is driving! Not even if you paid me!!
Oops.. Dotty is wondering where the newspaper is.. Amanda has hidden it because it must mention the princess’ assassination attempt.. Dotty wants to watch the news.. but Amanda tries to convince her not to..
Amanda: I mean, why watch the news? It’s always so depressing. Let’s just go upstairs to Phillip and Jamie’s room and I’ll tell you all about the princess and I’ll tell you all about who was there and what they wore and what the room looked like . . . before lunch.
Love how Amanda grits her teeth as she says ‘ before lunch! ‘ LOL!! clever!
Ok, I shall leave it there for now! Feedback? Thoughts? ideas? or questions?? Please share!!! byeee for now..
