4/6 Season Two, Episode 5: Charity Begins at Home-Scarecrow and Mrs King

Lee quickly returns to the bar where he finds S2E05_Charity.flv_001184760Amanda making a man a cocktail “Delicious and cold Martini, and don’t forget your cherry!” – and she puts a cherry in the man’s martini!! ha haaaa!!!!! (Bond has his Martini’s with a cherry- no??  ) Love how Lee holds up a glass of green sludge and asks  what’s this?
Amanda: I don’t know! No one would drink it! Amanda and Lee discuss where Perrine could have hidden his formula he will be selling.. Amanda thinks it is in Perrine’s car – Love this!
S2E05_Charity.flv_001217080Amanda: In his car! He has a red excalibur that he’s gonna enter in the competition and I don’t think it’s left the paddock yet.
S2E05_Charity.flv_001213040Lee: Amanda. His car is the first place anyone would look.
Amanda: Perfect hiding place!
S2E05_Charity.flv_001225160Lee: nooo. Ha noo it doesn’t make sense.
Amanda: of course it makes sense. The first
S2E05_Charity.flv_001221120place that anyone will look is the last place that anyone will ever look!
Lee: I will wait till 2 o’clock ok?!
S2E05_Charity.flv_001237280Amanda: I can go do it now.
Lee: no you’re not going to go do it no-
S2E05_Charity.flv_001241320 Lee is interrupted by a lady wanting a Mai Tai!  Amanda ignores Lee and sneaks off while his back is turned ( is that the first time she has done that? ) to go check haaaa!

S2E05_Charity.flv_001261520Masterson is trying to recruit a partner to buy Perrine’s formula with.. another baddie.. man.. so many! Masterson reassures this baddie London will walk away from this deal.. uh oh.. Masterson made sure of that huh!
[You guys listen to the loudspeaker! seems he is always telling people not to do things! Don’t touch the cars! don’t light up in the building! LOL!!]
Wow.. go Amanda! she is brave isn’t she!! I think
S2E05_Charity.flv_001301920she is, to go check out that car when someone could have seen her.. S2E05_Charity.flv_001330200very courageous! no formula, but.. she did find a dead body! Black gloves? Must be London.. uh oh!! Amanda copes S2E05_Charity.flv_001342320quite well I think! Wow.. and she even touches his sleeve to put his arm back in so she can close the boot [trunk in American!]!! (The music as she searches is an interesting choice.. it almost sounds medieval!! why is that??!! Ohhh wait.. ‘Excalibur!!!’ LOL!! Even the music department has a sense of humour!!Smile Go have a listen!! )

Amanda hurries back to the bar.. love Amanda’s S2E05_Charity.flv_001358480line to Lee couldn’t we at least move the body out of the sun?  – ahhh that is classic smk.. I always wondered why they didn’t call the police and anonymously report the murder – they would have been able to get more people in and find the formula.. but then.. I guess you have to have Lee and Amanda bringing down the bad guys without help Winking smile it’s more fun!
The meeting is on and Lee takes off to do some more eavesdropping.. Oh Lee, why didn’t you give Amanda that book before?(ETA:oops had included same pic twice-boring!! so have put in this lovely one of Lee giving Amanda the book!) Lee S2E05_Charity.flv_001390800tells Amanda when in doubt, make the drinks stronger!
and to cover for him.
– ie to stay in the Bar! Rofl!!! I wish he had said it like that.. it would have been a nice little word play on the usual ‘stay in the car’!
Love how Amanda starts studying the book when Lee leaves – checking out how to make a ‘Cliffhanger’ – good one!! Lee is off to spy on the baddies.. will he make it back safely? Cliffhanger!!!

Mrs Coleman is back at the bar, wishing for S2E05_Charity.flv_001459480Carlos…. but a Bohemian fling (now upgraded from the Bohemian dream!!) from Amanda will do! Go Amanda!!

Lee has found the meeting in Perrine’s office and listens in from out on the verandah.. The greedy men all help themselves to a drink ( suffer, they are missing out on a bohemian fling!) and settle in for some business.

S2E05_Charity.flv_001503920Back to the bar and Mrs Coleman starts her Bohemian Fling.. Mr Cherry in his Martini sees the bohemian fling and he too wants one! S2E05_Charity.flv_001524120I guess since he sees  Mrs Coleman is drinking it – it must be drinkable Winking smile
S2E05_Charity.flv_001536240Soooo Mr Perrine has a formula for reducing the amount of crops.. to manipulate the price and make a bundle…
Ahh Lee has a way with dogs huh.. as if you would stay there and let it bark at you.. growl and tug at your pants!

S2E05_Charity.flv_001572600The Mai Tai lady Lee served didn’t like the Mai Tai he made her.. haaaa!!! Amanda seems to be gathering a little following there for her Bohemian Fling!

Lee gets busted by the guard, what’s going to happen to him now???!!!  S2E05_Charity.flv_001665520S2E05_Charity.flv_001649360

We don’t find out yet.. back to Mrs Coleman tipsy at the Bar – too funny! Good thing she got so drunk or she would have noticed how long Carlos had been missing!
I Love how her Pearls are now draped over her shoulder and down her arm.. my what a totally shloshed lady she is! hahahaa… it is justice for sure.. only I am sure it was unintentional on Amanda’s part.. Amanda is looking around for Lee and starting to get very worried! She excuses herself to Mrs Coleman who says ‘ that’s alright dear’ – aha! Amanda has cracked the secret of getting along with Mrs Coleman.. the bohemian fling! Amanda leaves the bar.. ( you didn’t expect her to stay in the bar did you??!!)

S2E05_Charity.flv_001701880The guard locks Lee in a freezer.. I don’t understand why they don’t kill Lee (and S2E05_Charity.flv_001722080permanently put him on ice!).. oh well this is smk land.. The security guard is soo mean! Treating Lee like he is a piece of Meat!!!  😉

Amanda goes to the stables to find Billy (good S2E05_Charity.flv_001774600thing Lee told her where he was.).. errr she could move away from that S2E05_Charity.flv_001754400horse.. wow.. even Billy is looking a bit annoyed at Amanda here.. and that’s saying somethingimage Amanda explains there’s a killer out there.. and Lee is out there.. but Billy says to give him more time and just smiles at Amanda and tells her to cover the bar – a little condescending there Billy!
S2E05_Charity.flv_001790760Amanda: you do understand what I’m saying don’t you Mr Melrose?
S2E05_Charity.flv_001815000Billy: I understand you nearly all the time Amanda, it bothers me… a little.. but I do understand.From Lee I get this, but from Billy, I’m a bit surprised at him saying this.. a funny line yes.. but I didn’t think he had that attitude towards Amanda..Billy is no help to Amanda (or Lee) here at all.

Luckily Amanda not only doesn’t listen to Lee- she doesn’t listen to Billy either and she goes looking for Lee in spite of the dangers. It is very rare for Amanda to not listen to Billy! 

This whole scene in the stables just annoyed me, they played up Amanda’s annoyingness and anxiety and made her look silly with the horse.. image I don’t really see what purpose it served.. it could have been left out and it would have made no difference.. we already thought Lee and Amanda were on their own in the equidome.. Oh well..

Amanda is being super brave again, going in search of Lee… She finds Perrine’s office is S2E05_Charity.flv_001887720empty.. What a helpful guard.. just as Amanda happens by she hears him saying on his radio S2E05_Charity.flv_001907920that Carlos Perez is on ice.. ( I wonder if she thought he had been killed!! ) anyway.. without that Amanda could have had no idea Carlos was in the freezer!

I will leave it there for now.. Back with more soon! Feel free to comment on this episode.. thanks for reading byeee..

  1. “Shouldn’t we at least move it out of the sun?” was a LOL moment for me. I wasn’t irked by how Amanda was portrayed in the stable scene – I thought it showed her concern for Lee and that she was actually *more* on top of things than the agents, because she sensed there was something wrong in Lee not returning from the meeting, while Billy pooh-poohed her. And the gag with the horse just demonstrated to me that Amanda was so intent on getting her message across that she didn’t have time to bother with the pushy creature (the horse, not Billy).

  2. Whilst I understand the need to hide the body would you really want to shove it in the boot on jot sunny day. Especially a very expensive car?! I mean there are some odours you can eventually get rid of, just not sure dead body is one of them!!!!


  3. Maybe locking Lee in the fridge could be passed off as an accident; not so much if they’d shot him or something. They’ve already got one body lying around after all


    • I had a laugh at myself that I questioned that.. I mean why would I be complaining that they didn’t kill Lee? LOL! how hard to please am I haaaa! 🙂 I am sure us clever smk fans ( as all smk fans are clever!) can come up with reasons! Yes Anne good one.. to look like an accident- indeed! Hmmm.. or maybe Perrine wants to question him later to find out who he is working for or something.. Hmmm.. I was surprised that Perrine never questioned the beverage supervisor about Carlos’ snooping.. as Lee warned.. eek again there I go complaining because Amanda was not in any danger! man I am difficult! ok ok.. I’ve got the answer – the baddies are just plain dumb 🙂

  4. You know, I really liked that line from Billy. He’s probably noticed that he understands Amanda rambles without having to try, while everybody else gets confused trying to follow her trains of thought – he probably feels a bit like he can understand a foreign language without having had lessons, or something.

  5. I guess a body left in the car in the hot sun will smell worse than a meatloaf left in a hot car in the sun, eh?


    • Well where there is meatloaf there is only a cook 😉 where there is a dead body in the trunk (boot!) there is a murderer..
      It’s a fabulous line isn’t it!! 🙂 I can only imagine it is upsetting to Perrine to have a dead body stuffed into his pride and joy! LOL.. and that it results in him having to pull his car from the competition.. Suffer Perrine.. I have no sympathy for the guy! 🙂


So what do you think??? :)
