Lee is shown into the Senator’s office.. and the next thing we see is Amanda at the MOTYA judging.. Hmmm.. So is this later the same day? or the next day? Soooo Lee was going to see the Senator and Amanda was suppose to go see Billy to check mugshots for the guy who shot Gelles.. did she do that already? Everyone’s in different clothes..
Anyway, Amanda is at the judging.. we see Mrs Woodrow is there with the four other mothers.
Mrs Woodrow: All right mothers. Find your places!..
….Thank you. Now this is all very simple, really, and a lot of fun…
[For you maybe.. ugh!!]
…We want to see how all of you go about making your specialties….
…Hopefully it will be something edible ha haaa.
[ At this Amanda laughs, looks at Mrs Woodrow,
then turns from her and rolls her eyes at the rest of the mothers!!! rofl!!! that is sooooo Amanda isn’t it!!! ]
…You may all begin.
Maybe Amanda would never have chosen to be in a contest like this – though I am sure she loved the honour of her family nominating her.
LOL.. Mrs Woodrow is excited! Women are –baking cakes!!!! Ohhh what a small life she leads!!
Aaaand here comes the ever annoying Detective Tuggy… with no care whatsoever about how it looks that the police want to speak to Amanda- and how did he know she was there??!!
[he’s been doing this job long enough- he should know better! Shame on him!]
Seems ‘Officer Tuggy’ (as Amanda calls him here!) would like to ask Amanda a few questions..
LOL!! you think Amanda remembers him correcting her and so Amanda calls him ‘officer’ on purpose because he didn’t believe her at first?? you know.. I wouldn’t put it past her! and note- he doesn’t correct her this time- because he needs her now!!! You know in the script Amanda says ‘Hello Detective’ – ugh!!! this way is better! )
Tuggy: I’d like to ask you a few questions, about that murder. [–in front of everyone??!!!! At this we see the close up of Tuggy dumping his cigar ashes into Amanda’s cake batter!]
Mrs Woodrow in the background: Murder??!!!
Ha! Mrs Woodrow!!! and you were worried about Ants!!!!ROFL!!! I am sure they’ve never had a finalist like Amanda! Love the close up on Tuggy dropping cigar ash into her cake.. very realistic 😉 Like how Amanda slaps his hand – he was going to stick his hand in there and try and grab it!! haaaaa!!
At this we see the smug baddie, Foreman spying on them from around the corner with an ‘I’m a baddie’ expression on his face! I just love subtle baddies!
Foreman turns and we find his buddy Kincaid is there also.. and a very convenient public telephone! Foreman calls Rita. ROFL!!!! Rita has the baddie telephone!!!!
Ohhh toooo funny!!!!!
Foreman reports that Amanda is talking to the cops now..at this ‘mother’s bake off thing’
Charming Rita: How did you let it get that far! she’s not swapping recipes with them take her out now!
[I’m loving these crazy evil pics of Rita! Rofl!!]
Rita hangs up on them.. [I vote for Rita in the BOTYA- you know… the Baddie of the year award! LOL and Foreman for the GOTYA- the Goon of the year- Gotcha! good name for goons no?!]
Kincaid: now what?
Foreman: we cook her goose.
Ohhhhhh hoooo hooooooo.. now that is Shakespeare!!!
Just what Foreman has in mind.. we don’t know yet..
Back to Tuggy and Amanda.. she agrees to see Tuggy down at the station in 20 minutes- wow.. that is too kind! I mean she is right in the middle of making a flippin cake! and he can see that.. he has alot of nerve.. she should say no!! Plus, they found Gelles’ body yesterday morning– why didn’t the police contact her when they found the body and pulled the car out?! grr….
Anyway, without Amanda’s generosity we wouldn’t have this brilliant joke coming up at Mrs Woodrow’s expense!!!! [Seems while Foreman called Rita, Amanda managed to make her cake, and put it in the cake tin! she’s super fast while being questioned by the police! ]
Mrs Woodrow, acting very judgemental, approaches Amanda – my goodness.. good people talk to the cops too you know! Amanda should get bonus points for being such a good citizen!! and for preparing her cake while being questioned by the police, and spied on by judgemental Mrs Woodrow! And.. all while smiling!! 🙂
Mrs Woodrow: Mrs King.
Amanda: Mrs Woodrow.
Mrs W: is there something we should know?!!
Amanda: well ah yes, there is. I’m going to have to be leaving now for a few minutes so if you wouldn’t mind, could you put this in the oven for me at about oh I’d say 350?
Mrs W: Well that’s not really in the rules.
Amanda: oh well, you know there are no rules for mothers Mrs Woodrow, we just sort of make them up as we go along, we have to think on our feet.
Amanda: yes the police were here but they’re gone now and I’m going there so if you could put this in the oven at 350 for ohhhh
I’d say about 30 minutes I would appreciate it.
Mrs W: I don’t think you can tell me what to do.
Amanda: Ohh Mrs Woodrow,
that’s what mothers do
they tell you what to do and then they tell you if you’ve done it right.
That’s the best line this episode!!! rofl classic smk- love it!!!!!
Guess what’s in the script????!!!! Just this:
“That’s what mothers do. they make the rules.”
This is soooooo much more brilliant isn’t it!!! The bit about checking to see if Mrs Woodrow has done it right?? tips this into utter brilliance!!! I wonder if that was a KJ ad lib.. well done whoever came up with it!!
At this.. Mrs Woodrow is speechless!!!!!
uh oh.. next thing we see Kincaid is tampering with Amanda’s car.. Amanda heads to her car.. So the baddies watch her hop in.. Hmm too bad Amanda didn’t see them.. as she would have recognised one of them as the bad guy who shot Gelles!
She starts her car and uh oh.. her accelerator is stuck!
At that moment Lee pulls into the car park, so she has to avoid hitting his precious corvette and killing herself! Like she didn’t have enough to deal with!
I love how she yells out her window at Lee as she speeds past that her accelerator is stuck.. He must have had no idea what she was saying.. but it being Amanda King.. well it’s probably not good! I love how we get lots of close ups on her foot pumping the pedal – and Lol Amanda is suddenly wearing heels! Before when she walked to her car- she had on her nikes! Drat.. Nike missed an opportunity for a close up here!!
Anyway.. we get a few moments of Amanda panicked.. and –hmm I think this might be the same square from Fearless Dotty?? where they filmed Dukes of Hazzard? well.. she heads out of control through the square, fabulous facial expressions from KJ!! She turns a corner but faces a woman and a pram in the process of crossing the road!!! Ohhh nooo!!!
I shall leave it there for now.. will Amanda be okay? LOL.. err I guess we all know.. but stay tuned!! As always thanks for stopping by and reading- and for joining in the fun!!! It is so encouraging to hear from others out there in cyberspace reading..[A big welcome to KC who is new to the blog!!!] I love to share smk ideas, thoughts and enjoy the show together! Back with more soon!
