6/9 Season Two, Episode 4: The Legend of Das Geisterschloss-Scarecrow and Mrs King

Lee and Amanda are left in the Mirabel Gardens by Dr Evil.. Lee grabs the sketchbook and begins to compare Emily’s sketch of the statue ( The rape of the sabine women? ) with the real deal..
2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001114514 he senses something is off but he can’t put his finger on it. It looks very windy.. No wonder there’s so much lip licking going on.. drat.. I can’t put it down to impure thoughts Winking smile
Lee: I don’t know Amanda. What’s she trying to tell us.
Amanda is suddenly transfixed by the statue also. She says to herself: Hmm that’s funny.
Lee: What’s funny?

Amanda: I don’t know.
Lee: You’re making my day.
Amanda:  Look there’s something wrong with this picture. This one statue, there’s something wrong with the legs.

Lee: What?
Amanda: Ahhhhhhh! I got it!
Lee: got what?!
Amanda: Well you know how Mrs Farnsworth taught you that after you’ve looked you have to look and look and look again?
2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001142542Lee: yes yes, Amanda? Look if you’re going someplace with this, will you please just get to the point.
[ I can’t believe it.. but I’m agreeing with Lee here – come on Amanda just spill!]
Amanda: Every month Phillip and Jamie get a boy’s magazine ( Hey! Mad isn’t for girls too??!!)
and in each issue there is a picture that has things hidden within the picture.
Lee: so?
Amanda: so, I think that’s what Mrs Farnsworth’s doing. I think she’s  hidden something in every sketch and in this one I think it’s errr……..
Lee: Jackhammer.

Amanda:  maybe it’s not a jackhammer it could be a lawn mower.. it’s not a lawn mower.. it’s definitely something!
2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001165565[Lee bites his tongue.. good man! and notices the Austrian dude from yesterday is still hovering.. ] So Lee encourages them to move on.
Amanda: no no! nooo I’ve got it! I’ve got it! It’s a letter. It’s the letter T!
Lee: Great it’s the letter T! ah is there anymore sketches?
and he hurrys Amanda on..
They walk off visiting the locations of the other sketches to find the other missing letters.. 2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001195795Amanda finds the letter O at the pretzel stand
and Lee
2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001205605tells Amanda they are being followed.. Lee says he noticed him yesterday at the puppet show.. well that’s cool continuity! good one! and Lee decides to find out for sure what this guy is up to…

2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_0012266262.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001236636He makes the most of every opportunity to pull Amanda close! Just look how he 2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001241641turns her around here!!! smooth Lee! you pick that up in high school?

2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001266666They head down an alley way and lead the guy following them into a trap..

2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001284684This is where I thought it looked like Lee had a bruise on his forehead. but well.. it could be anything I guess!  It turns out the guy who has been following them is Austrian intelligence (Uh oh.. Lee calls him Pal!!) His name is Colonel Gerard Metzger..

Oh I just love the location of this ‘cafe’ in the next scene.. gorgeous! so funny to think it doesn’t really exist. Oh I forgot to mention Mariandl over on the Yuku forum has done some research on the Salzburg locations – and done a fabulous job giving us up to date information on all these locations! if you are interested you can see her insights here: http://scarecrowandmrskingforum.yuku.com/reply/59855/Filming-Locations#reply-59855  Thanks Mariandl!! Great work!!

Anyway, I always feel a little uneasy at Amanda sitting on the edge of the wall like that with a huge drop behind her! eek!!!  but.. I am sure Lee’s big strong arms would have ( swoon) caught her if she had fallen!
2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001316716Look how close they are to each other.. snuggled together checking out the sketchbook! yes- snuggled!  Does anyone know the name of this lookout where they are in Salzburg? come on Salzburg locals! Fill us in!! Smile 

I Love how the camera follows Metzger walking up to them so you could get a look at the whole view on offer! We get to see a 270 degree view!!! brilliant! [I think Lee and Amanda came here for their second honeymoon! Winking smile ]
Metzger explains he could tell they were interested in Emily, so he had to follow them and find out if they were goodies or not Smile
Lee: She asked you to meet her here two days ago?
Col Metzger: Yes
[Well that is interesting! since yesterday Lee told Amanda that Emily had been missing two days.. which means today she has been missing three days! but.. she contacted Metzger two days ago?! tee heee.. we could see that as a sign he is lying.. but.. nah! It’s just bad continuity! Winking smile ]
Metzger continues: and like you, I was told that she’d left for Vienna. What I really don’t 2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001328728understand Frau King, is why she wanted you here? [ how gorgeous is the view behind Metzger??!! Ohhh smk does a lovely job showcasing the European locations! they did such a great job! well done smk!! ]
Amanda: I don’t know. I think maybe it’s because she hoped that I would remember her sketching

[oh my Gosh!! And how gorgeous is that view behind Amanda??!!! oh yeah.. and that view of Salzburg is pretty gorgeous too! You didn’t think I was referring to Salzburg did you?! Winking smile  I can’t go past Mr Relaxed and Casual Lee!  hooo haaaa!!!! swoooooon!  Sorry! I’m getting distracted! I’ll try really hard to focus on what Amanda’s saying.. and ignore the.. View! ]
Amanda continues:
.. and then we would find the clues that she left in them.
Col Metzger: Clues?
Amanda: Ah yes! You see, in each sketch we found a letter. See the sketch of the gardens? That’s a T.

[I can’t see a T! but.. whatever! It’s probably just me! Smile ] O at the pretzel stand.
Col Metzger: yah
Amanda: the fountain with the horses: you see that little tiny S?
[well I can see an s in the other horse’s mane too.. and I see a monkey.. and err I see a face on the side of that building..tee hee.. it’s a good thing Emily didn’t call for me! Winking smile Anyone see Santa? 😉 ]
Lee: wai- wait! You didn’t tell me you’d found another letter. [Haa! Lee is a bit put out that she didn’t tell him! ]
2.04 THE LEGEND OF DAS GEISTERSCHLOSS.avi_001356756Amanda: Well, ha.. I tried to tell you, but you didn’t hear me. ( haaa.. take that Mr Patience and control.. and she does it so nicely! )
See, she’s spelling something out. It doesn’t mean anything now but when we get all the letters, I think it might tell us something.
Lee: yeah that’s an S it’s right there in the horse’s mane
[ tee hee oh come on Lee keep up Winking smile ]
Col Metzger: how many of these sketches are there?
Amanda: there’s this next one of the cafe, then there’s this house.

Col Metzger: that’s Mozart’s house.
Amanda: Mmm hmm..and I think that’s an H.
Then there’s this um Castle in the lake. Do you know where that is?
Col Metzger: yes, it’s outside of town. A very isolated spot.
Amanda: I can’t find anything in this one. It’s all just straight up and down lines.
Col Metzger: If Frau Farnsworth drew it, it must have some significance.
Lee: I think we ought to have a look at it.
Col Metzger: I’ll meet you there. I will ask some questions of the local police they might have some information on the owner or something of value. Shall we say half an hour?
Lee: half an hour, you got it.

Off they go.. love how all the tables are resting on grass – so it’s obvious that restaurant isn’t usually there! LOL! but.. I still wish there was one there! Just gorgeous!

Ahhh things get a bit murky from now with the plot – all the castles, sketches and baddies etc. We might need to help each other make sense of all this stuff that’s coming.. So we will finish up here for the moment. Lee and Amanda making their way to the Castle on the Lake to meet Col. Metzger and check it out..

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading.. I would love to hear from you.. any feedback? thoughts? questions? comments? Please feel free to share or ask away.. We are all smk friends here! Smile I’ll be back with more as soon as I can..

    Being online when I read this (originally on the lookout for more meme fodder), I decided to search for that statue. It’s Hades taking Persephone with him into the Underworld. One of the “Raptusgruppen”, a group of statues in Mirabell Gardens with a similar theme.

    SA likes to learn new stuff that way…


    • ScarecrowsAngel

      I just came from Mariandl’s picture page at Yuku. Just to make certain: I first input “Rape of the Sabine Women” into Google, and it got me nowhere. Then I found the statue in a Salzburgwiki entry, along with the above information.

      SA doesn’t want anyone to think that she’s trying to put false info in here…


  2. I see the t! I see the t! It’s a curvy lower-case t embedded in the lower right leg (well, technically the guy’s left left, but it’s on the right in this picture) of the guy carrying the woman. And the H is in the left-hand shutter of the 2nd window from the right.


  3. There is a point in the scene where Amanda is explaining about the magazine her boys get and Lee is looking down at her and the wind is blowing his hair and he is looking at her and the wind is blowing his hair, and the hair and the wind and….heavy sigh!!!


  4. I really can’t decide if I prefer Lee in a waistcoat or relaxed Lee without tie, sleeves rolled up. Can I have both LMAO?!
    OK apart from the S I can’t see a single letter in those pictures. Clearly cryptic is not my forte.


  5. IWSOD, you asked about this area above Salzburg where the cafe scene is set. It’s called Mönschberg, and there is an inn there, the Gasthaus Stadtalm, with an outdoor seating area that has the same glorious views of Salzburg shown in “Geisterschloss.” (We were yelling, “We’ve been there!” the first time we saw this episode.) The only puzzling thing was that it has a railing rather than the stone wall that Lee and Amanda sit on, so we figured that the scene must’ve been filmed somewhere in that vicinity near a picturesque stone wall. Clever Mariandl found the spot behind the Stadtalm, which is at right angles to the cliff. It’s such a beautiful area, and the Stadtalm serves very good coffee and pastries!

    I think it’s quite diplomatic of Amanda to tell Lee that she tried to tell him about the new letter but he didn’t hear her instead of saying, “I DID tell you, but you weren’t listening, Leeeee!” If you ask me, she’d the one with patience and control.


  6. mmmmmmmmmmm. Wet Lee with shirt open. mmmmmmm. I envy those water drops. mmmmmmmmm.


  7. Casual Lee. *hand to my heart* I am not sure whether I should swoon or drool or stick my hanging tongue back in my mouth. Holy Smoly!
    (I won’t even go on about how Amanda’s “I can’t get straight to the point to save my life” ramble irks me.)

    • Cindy.. Brace yourself for the good stuff that’s coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m right there with ya!! ( good thing your hubby didn’t see this episode with you the first time.. would have been hard to explain that big puddle of drool.. ( or the drool bucket) tee heee!

      Ahh yeah they do at times take her ramblings a tad too far.. and I begin to side with Lee – get to the point! 🙂

        • Ohhh thanks Paula and Cindy! You guys made me LOL! I am a tad stressed at the moment and needed a good laugh.. 😆

          You know I forgot that the ‘shirt open wet Lee’ is on the header of my blog! tee heee..
          Hmmm Maybe I should change that.. I don’t want people to be so distracted they can’t post and say hello! I bet that is why so many people remain in lurkdom – they are hyperventilating over wet Lee and can’t form a coherent sentence!!! tee heee..

          Actually a generous smk friend (who is very talented!) has offered to do a new smk artwork for a new banner – will be good to change the look I think..
          (not too much!) – any suggestions for scenes to include in the collage? err that won’t have people reaching for the drool bucket and unable to think? 😉 err but still very pleasant? 😉

          Open to suggestions.

          Aaaaand back to the study for me 😦
