2/6 Season Two, Episode 5: Charity Begins at Home-Scarecrow and Mrs King

Gee.. would you look at that water and power van the agency is using to do surveillance on the equidome? How convincing!!! do you think anyone driving past this would doubt it is for real? Why S2E05_Charity.flv_000372720that camera is sooooo subtle just sitting there in plain view on the front seat!!! ha haaa.. This surveillance van interior is funny.. how many tv monitors does a guy need of the same picture!:). S2E05_Charity.flv_000392920Lee and Billy sit in their car watching other cars come and go.. Wow… Billy is one hands on boss! He even does stakeouts! Winking smile ( do you think if they S2E05_Charity.flv_000390000had gone with a $400- ad they would have been given complimentary entry?!) You can feel the frustration oozing from Lee now as he is forced to sit on his hands. I’m beginning to feel some frustration of my own here.. Ok ok! we get it they are stuck outside.. talk about overkill!
S2E05_Charity.flv_000409080Lee: ugh! we’ve gotta get inside Billy!
Billy: he’s got that place buttoned and wired. S2E05_Charity.flv_000413120We’ve worked overtime to put him away and he knows it!
S2E05_Charity.flv_000417160Lee: yeah well there’s always a way, it just takes some thought and ingenuity.
S2E05_Charity.flv_000421200Billy: it’s going to take a lot more than that. Perrine has been under the scrutiny of several government agencies for the past few years. He’s an expert on seclusion.
S2E05_Charity.flv_000426040Lee: Oh yeah? well we’re suppose to be experts too aren’t we?
[LOL! preach brother preach!!] Look we know he’s invited the wealthiest speculators in the country to this show! This could be the biggest deal he’s pulled off so far and we can’t get past that gate! ( oh really? I didn’t realise.. wow.. you mean.. you can’t get in?????)

Billy: that’s right scarecrow.
We can’t get past that gate, no one we know can get past that gate..”
Take a look back at this conversation between Lee and Billy in the car here.. and tell me this – which one of them sounds like the boss here and which one the underling??? It’s ridiculous!! Lee is giving his boss the ‘we’ve got to do something’ pep talk while his boss is telling him there is no hope????!!!

They’re laying it all on very thick aren’t they..anvils-a-plenty! Setting up the big surprise to come.. only.. first they have to introduce the baddies..
S2E05_Charity.flv_0004414002 greedy guys.. My goodness, this head baddie Perrine is making me see spots! imageI bet he S2E05_Charity.flv_000502000has dots on his underwear too!! Spotty guy has something to sell.. and Ted S2E05_Charity.flv_000510080Masterson is anxious to know what the deal is… but spotty guy makes him wait till tomorrow..

Hey, did you realise the agency can’t get into this event?!!!  Yep.. the scene is set: Amanda!… come on down!!!!!
S2E05_Charity.flv_000530280Enter: the station-wagon! ( the only one in Arlington) Love the view we see of Amanda through the binoculars! Smile

S2E05_Charity.flv_000534320Billy is pleased and surprised to see Amanda getting into the event..telling the agency guy not to worry about tracing her plates- he S2E05_Charity.flv_000535480knows who it is.. Lee is confused by this.. so he takes the binoculars and looks for himself! LOL!! Lee is just shocked! S2E05_Charity.flv_000538600hehehee.. you should have asked S2E05_Charity.flv_000542400Amanda more about her plans.. that will teach you! hehehee.
S2E05_Charity.flv_000562600Later that night, Dotty and Amanda are doing the dishes and having a catch up.. Love the little S2E05_Charity.flv_000570680exchange about “poor Mr Perrine losing his wife two years ago”
S2E05_Charity.flv_000571920Amanda: Mother he lost her to a french baron and he seems pretty happy.
Dotty: that is a front Amanda. A wealthy man like S2E05_Charity.flv_000590880that is not going to announce his loneliness, He’s too proud! Successful men do not like to admit they have failed at love. You have a lot to learn about older men.
Considering what Dotty says about men with titles in waiting for Godorsky and this…. I’d say Dotty has a tale or two to tell Winking smile  Dotty seems to use ‘successful’ and ‘older’ interchangeably. I was thinking about Lee admitting he had failed at love.. he managed to in Lost and Found, although I am sure he didn’t like it!
S2E05_Charity.flv_000598040Off Dotty goes for a little ‘luxury of my own’ Smile A bubble bath of apricot and cinnamon aromatherapy.. I shall finish up there for now.. byeee all!!! Any feedback? questions? thoughts? feel free to share!!! byeeeeeee

  1. A small observation: Amanda and Dotty sure wash a lot of dishes for a house with a dishwasher!


  2. There are an astonishing number of butt chins (clef chins) in display in this episode – Billy, Masterson, and at least one more.

    How does Lee keep his job? He’s the most insubordinate employee I’ve ever seen. For a former military man, he sure doesn’t follow the chain of command very well. Say it with me, Lee: Billy Is Your Boss. Don’t treat him like a slightly slow-witted lackey.

    • I didn’t think Lee actually was military. Did I miss something?

      He’s more respectful with Smyth, Dirk, & Co. I thought I remember a reference to Lee & Billy working in the field together before Billy was promoted to Section Chief — maybe it’s just hard to adjust to the dynamic when they were friends first? I’ve noticed something similar on NCIS with Gibbs and the last two directors (especially Jenny) and we know Gibbs is a former Marine.


  3. Oh dear billy was on a one man pity party LOL but good old Amanda’s arrival has thrown them the rope they need thank heavens 🙂
    Dotty is fab, her memoirs would have been worth a read 😉 Love how Dotty’s Poor Mr Perrine sets us up to think he’s a lonely widower and then Amanda smashes that illusion showing him as being cuckolded. We don’t want to be feeling sorry for the main bad guy now do we 😉


  4. OK, IWSOD — I really didn’t need the mental image of Perrine’s skivvy’s. UGH! And you are the gal who didn’t want to see Lee in a towel LOL!.

    This snippet makes us howl everytime we see it. From the Polka (dot) King, to the reaction of Billly and Lee when they realize Amanda is in and they are not, it’s priceless.

    You think everyone at the agency would know by now that Amanda and/or her mother are going to be involved in the case.
