Lee quickly returns to the bar where he finds Amanda 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! Amanda: 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.
Lee: Amanda. His car is the first place anyone would look.
Amanda: Perfect hiding place!
Lee: nooo. Ha noo it doesn’t make sense.
Amanda: of course it makes sense. The first place that anyone will look is the last place that anyone will ever look!
Lee: I will wait till 2 o’clock ok?!
Amanda: I can go do it now.
Lee: no you’re not going to go do it no- 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!
Masterson 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 she is, to go check out that car when someone could have seen her.. very courageous! no formula, but.. she did find a dead body! Black gloves? Must be London.. uh oh!! Amanda copes quite 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!! Go have a listen!! )
Amanda hurries back to the bar.. love Amanda’s line 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 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 tells 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!!!
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.
Back to the bar and Mrs Coleman starts her Bohemian Fling.. Mr Cherry in his Martini sees the bohemian fling and he too wants one! I guess since he sees Mrs Coleman is drinking it – it must be drinkable
Soooo 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!
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??!!)
The guard locks Lee in a freezer.. I don’t understand why they don’t kill Lee (and permanently 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 thing Lee told her where he was.).. errr she could move away from that horse.. wow.. even Billy is looking a bit annoyed at Amanda here.. and that’s saying something 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!
Amanda: you do understand what I’m saying don’t you Mr Melrose?
Billy: 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.. 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 empty.. What a helpful guard.. just as Amanda happens by she hears him saying on his radio that 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..
