We pick up this episode that evening, where Amanda is at the Bierhaus to meet Haddy.. because she is a tourist, not an agent.. and if he smells an agent he will take off.. Yep.. that must be why Lee, an agent, is there??!! The script was even worse and had Francine posing as a beer maid.
We hear impatient Lee as we see the exterior of the bierhaus: Haddy will be here any minute! Remember your code words and get your stein.
Finally we see Lee in the beirhaus in his hawaiian shirt bossing Amanda around..
Amanda: Where is it?
Lee indicates with a nod where to go! Ugh.. Amanda bounces along with the music and a big nervous smile.. and Lee hurries her along..Amanda is not fast enough for his liking.. way to go Lee.. make her more nervous! It is ridiculous that he is there, but trying to act like he is not there, and then totally intruding and rushing her along.. but at least we get a pay off for Lee being there.. and I like to think he is there for Amanda’s protection
We see Amanda find her stein, use a key ( whoo tough assignment!), open the little door and pick up her stein !
What’s our payoff? Check out the little smile Lee gives as he watches Amanda bouncing along to the music
Bartender: Do you want beer?
Amanda: Ja ja ja ja!
The bartender hands her back the stein full of beer (we don’t see Amanda pay – is it free with the stein or something? Can someone explain to me the whole beer stein locked in a cupboard concept? Teach me something please ) Amanda is taken by surprise by how heavy the full stein is.. and nearly drops it..
Bartender: careful haa!
LOL I would imagine it is nothing compared to the gallon of milk that she has in her fridge at home! [no we do not have huge gallons of milk for sale in Australia!]
Amanda: Thank you.
Amanda’s big smile firmly in place she starts dancing around with the full beer stein..only she gets bumped into, swings her stein out of the way, and the beer flies out into someone’s face..
Amanda: Oh, I’m so sor-
Amanda realises the someone is Lee!
Her expressions here are priceless! while Lee just seems stunned and incredulous!
Amanda: Oh, I’m so sorry.
Amanda as the beer toting dumb tourist is a funny sight! Lee covered in warm lager is even funnier! yeah, way to go Amanda!
Love how she takes the opportunity to caress err I mean tidy Lee’s hair for him as she apologises! hehehee..
Lee: Will you please, please sit down?
Amanda: I’m trying, I really am.
I swear as she says this Lee ( or BB) looks like he is trying not to laugh! I bet there are some fabulous outtakes of this scene!!!!
Amanda sits at a long communal table..
Random Man: Cheers.
Amanda raises her stein: Cheers.
As she sips her beer (Well,not really! the beer doesn’t quite reach her mouth!), a man approaches her and stands next to her saying: This music’s not exactly Bob Dylan, is it?
whoooo a 3rd Bob Dylan reference in 2 weeks!!!
Amanda: I like the Beatles more.
Haddy: Yeah. (He walks around and sits at the table opposite Amanda) Especially the White Album. Remember, “Happiness …?”
Amanda: “– is a warm gun.”
Haddy: You really are a tourist.
Amanda: Yes, I really am. I’m here with my mother and my two boys. Well, I don’t mean here, they’re not here here, they’re back at the hotel, the Hilton. I am a tourist. . . . Would you like some beer?
Why does Haddy say ‘you really are a tourist’ after Amanda responds by finishing the name of the beatles song? I don’t get it.!!!!!! Why would he want a tourist and not agency anyway? he knows he is making a deal with agency.. I am completely lost..
Haddy gives Amanda his info.. he is set to kill a prominent american in the next 48hours, he needs out fast! ..
Amanda: Who are you supposed to kill?
Haddy: I won’t know until just before. That way I can’t warn anyone or back out. All I know is it’s an American, here in Munich, forty-eight hours, when the night falls.
Amanda: Well, I can see why you’d want to leave.
Haddy: There’s another reason. I just learned . . . I have a son. He’s seven years old, I’ve never seen him before. I met his mother over here. I didn’t even know we had a child. And now I’ve just been told she’s been killed in a car accident back in the States. He’s going to need somebody. I’m his father.
Haddy is a Daddy??? who would have thought.
Amanda: Oh, well, I —
Haddy: People can change, you know! Sometimes even for the better!
Uh oh.. Haddy sees flutey boy ( Thanks Paula!) and Inga have just walked in..
Haddy continues quickly: Give me the Agency’s answer tomorrow. Ten o’clock. St. George’s church. Amanda turns to dig her guidebook out of her bag. Amanda repeats: St. George’s church. Ten o’clock tomorrow.
Haddy does a surprise goodbye on Amanda while she is searching her guidebook!
Amanda talking to now absent Haddy: Yes, do you happen to know what number that is in my –
Amanda is unaware that Inga and Flutely boy have noted her talking to Haddy the daddy.. Haddy goes to greet them warmly and pretends all is ok.. but.. Inga gives Amanda the death stare!!! uh oh..
Hey.. when Haddy says to Amanda he will meet her tomorrow at ‘ st george’s church’ his lips don’t match the words – looks like he said another church and then in post production they changed it!
So where is Lee in all this? Did he just leave? why didn’t he stay and meet Amanda after? I guess he only stayed till he saw her make contact with Haddy?? Lee’s presence and then absence makes no sense to me.. but.. beer in face? caressing hair? I don’t care!
I love how this scene ends with Amanda
sitting at the table, still absorbed in her guidebook , she takes a big swig of the beer as she keeps reading – her expressions here are so funny! I realised KJ finishes this scene by entertaining us with Amanda drinking beer and reading a book! how’s that for talent!! She can even make reading a book entertaining.. she’s so good at comedy Love it..
The next day, we see Amanda, back with her family on a street corner in Munich. Man.. they do a lot of shopping on holiday!!
Amanda says goodbye to them and goes to meet Lee.. Love how in the background here, all the bike riders are staring straight into the camera!
I think this next scene with Lee must have been paxed ( ie. cut out- when shown on the pax channel in the USA)- because Claudia has not included this scene with Lee in her transcription.. Such a shame too.. but Lucky us!!!
Ta da!!! Here comes Lee lookin gorgeous!!! So glad this scene wasn’t cut forever!!!!!
Amanda is so absorbed in her guidebook Lee gives her a surprise hello [gosh how many is that now for Amanda!]
Lee: Well! How’d your little meeting go with Haddy?
Amanda: well it was very sad.
Lee: sad? why?
Amanda: did you know he has a little boy he has never seen? And that the little boy’s mother was killed in an automobile accident? It’s one of the reasons he wants to go home.
[this must be a hand held camera here.. it’s a bit jumpy!!] A little boy left without a mother.. that must hit close to home for Lee..
Lee: I’d say that’s a damn good reason.
Lee is genuinely sincere here . Oh my.. old Lee would have not cared and been in a huff at Amanda’s sentimentality…
Lee: did he tell you anything else?
Lee puts his arm around Amanda and directs her down the street.. awh..
Amanda: well we’ve got to get him out of Munich, he’s in a lot of trouble.
Lee: ha yeah I know that. Now look, we’re suppose to meet Billy and Francine..
[The camera work in this scene is kinda interesting.. it must have been hard to film on public streets like this..
you see in this picture the camera has to let Lee and Amanda walk straight past it.. it looks like Kate is looking sideways to get past the cameraman and not trip on him.. and look! you can see Bruce’s mic under his tie attached to his shirt!]
Lee continues: ..then you can brief us all at once.
Amanda: check! Now, listen, Lee…I’m very sorry about the beer I spilled on you (I’m not! )
Lee: Noo don’t!
Amanda continues over the top of him: Now, I don’t think it will stain…
but if it does- some people say that you can use beer to get a stain out…I don’t know if it’s an old wives tale
Lee: Amanda please! ha it’s not important!
[As if Lee was EVER going to wear that shirt again-I am sure he is happy it is ruined ]
I love how these two manage to somehow always touch each other.. Lee touches Amanda lots turning her and guiding her down the street.. and Amanda manages to slip in a little touch of his jacket while apologising for spilling beer on him Tooooo cute!!! Which is why I am so glad this scene is in this episode
Lee continues-suddenly in business mode- too funny!! : .. now meet me at the Arkaden in two hours.
Amanda: the what?
Lee: ha number 22 in your map book.
Amanda: Number 22, Number 22 in two hours.
Lee leaves Amanda there.. what a shame they couldn’t spend the two hours together
Amanda sounds very stuffed up in this scene.. poor KJ must have been fighting a cold at some stage..
Ok Munich locals!!! Teach me??!! – what’s the Arkaden???
I thought Haddy the daddy wanted to meet Amanda at 10am.. and Amanda is meeting Lee in two hours? so what is it 7am?? but the family had already done tons of shopping that morning!!! this time line doesn’t make sense.. bring on the tuxedo and then I won’t notice a thing!
Okay, well I must run.. Thanks for reading and hope you are enjoying this episode!!
I would love to hear your comments too!!! Oh and if anyone has any picture requests please feel free to ask away.. if I haven’t included what you want- I would be happy to find it for you Byeee!
