Lee and Amanda are chatting as they await their turn on the high beam..
I think Lee is bored, so he chats with Amanda to pass the time… err not that he enjoys ahem having her around or ahem anything! He almost seems to be distracting Amanda from her training! Is this what Lee was like in high school? Amanda even makes reference to gymnastics at high school..[where Lee says he’ll take her word for it: I guess Lee didn’t do gymnastics!] Bad Lee for distracting Amanda! [he is always distracting me too ] but it’s very cute!! Anyone looking at the two of them would know they know each other already! it’s kinda ridiculous! I guess this chat about the other recruits is in service of us wondering who is the secret Pavlova!
Lee: say Amanda, did you meet anyone yet?
Amanda: Oh yes! ( Lee nods)
…Everybody seems very nice! (Amanda points)
well, that’s Peggy Marlowe the blond
( whooo yes lean a little closer to Amanda there Lee! I am enjoying this episode!!!! ).. She’s a model from New York, and behind her?
…That’s Brad Jordan, he’s a race car driver.
…He’s been in races all over the world.
[LOL Lee is so funny here! Mr relaxed and gossipy! It’s very cute! ]
Amanda: Mmm Hmm
Amanda: and right behind him, that’s Dr Simon Floyd.
[Ouch!! we see Dr Floyd at this moment painfully crash off the balancing beam! Nice to see Amanda isn’t the only recruit who gets herself into trouble! ]
[they are both so cute here.. and Lee is lookin sooo good I could include 50 pics of this conversation ] Lee: Ohhh
Amanda: Ah.. he’s an author. He wrote Reingold’s Revenge. Mother read it twice!.. and then ahhh this lady… (Amanda points again)
…is Lila Adams.
Lee is looking thoughtful…
Amanda studies Lee’s profile ( hey, wouldn’t you??)
and Lee gives Amanda a sideways glance-
he seems to have a little smile to himself knowing Amanda is wondering what’s he up to! I do believe he is enjoying himself shooting the breeze with Amanda!!
Amanda: don’t you know who they are?
Lee: Yeah I do! I read all their personnel records.
Amanda: Well if you already know, why did you ask me?
Lee: I’m just checking on your observations that all..
They are very cute here together- mirroring the other’s body language..
and love Lee’s sideways glance and little smile at Amanda as she continues
– Haa she bought it! Lee’s just killing time and enjoying her company.. She’s so serious! It’s too cute isn’t it?!
Hmm yes Lee, with Amanda around: maybe this station one won’t be so boring after all! Lee’s and Amanda’s friendship is coming along nicely!!! Plus Lee in the great outdoors? the sun shining on his hair?? ( and no turtleneck??!! ) Gorgeous!!! Which means not boring for Iwsod either!
Amanda: well, a pretty strange bunch.
Amanda: yeah! I mean, what could the agency do with a model from New York?
Lee: I don’t know. what could the agency do with an housewife?
[I think Amanda is thinking here: ohh here we go again!!! but.. this next line was the opposite of what she thought was coming!!!! ]
…but you’ve sort of come in handy in the past!
This compliment of Lee’s seems to be out of his mouth before he realised what he was saying! Although, he doesn’t seem to regret saying it either! 🙂 whooo hoooo!
It’s sooooo lovely to see Lee acknowledging Amanda’s contribution here.. Yes!!!! an actual- Compliment!!!! Yes Lee, she has come in very handy! Glad you finally seem to realise it! happy dance happy dance…
Drat.. Billy interrupts them calling out to them that they are up. LOL while they were chatting the rest of the crowd simply vanished.. Off they go along the balancing beam..[Lee seems to stick pretty close to Amanda throughout all these challenges – I think he has appointed himself her helper/protector- as usual!]
BTW-Brad Jordan??? we also have a Betsy Jordan (Life of the party) and Byron Jordan (murder between friends) as other SMK characters.. what’s with SMK and B.Jordan’s? Weird!
Okay, well this post is big enough already I better stop there.. I just had to include lots of pics of this lovely little moment between Lee and Amanda – if you look at this episode as before Brunettes like I do- then this is quite a significant moment.. Lee actually admits that Amanda has been useful! I think Amanda thought Lee was going to once again say what use does he have for a housewife? None.. but no!!!! squeeeeee!!!! I can’t get enough of Lee’s little smiles at Amanda here.. relaxed and enjoying being with her – even if he is at station 1 where he really really doesn’t want to be
Love to hear your thoughts as always everyone! byeee and back with more soon!
