Okay we’re back.. and during the commercial break lots of flower pots came from nowhere and landed on Amanda’s car roof!
Lee who had been following closely behind Amanda pulls up..
It must have been absolutely terrifying for Lee to see Amanda go through that store front!
Lurve Lee’s panicked ‘ Amaaaaannnnnddddaaaa?? Amanda!!!’ as he runs into the flower shop. Yes Runs!!!
– whooo it’s been a while since we’ve heard one of those caring sounding cries! or.. maybe this is the first??? Anyone??
We hear a little ‘yessss!!’ from Amanda.
Lee: are you okay?
Lee opens the passenger side door and helps Amanda out being very attentive to her- awh!!
Amanda sounds shaken up, scared: ah yes I think so.
Lee leans into the car and actually undoes her belt for her- awhhh!
Amanda: good thing I wear my seatbelt
[yep.. especially when someone is out to kill you! oh and those extra large shoulder pads Amanda is sporting are a very fortuitous fashion addition! ]
Lee: yeah! what happened?! [I’m guessing Lee didn’t hear Amanda screeching as she drove past him that her accelerator was stuck?! ]
Amanda: I don’t know
They both stand up straight, having finally gotten Amanda out of the car – they both for the first time realise what they are surrounded by!
How lovely that Lee didn’t even notice- he was just focused on getting to Amanda, making sure she was okay and helping her out of the car!! awh!!
[you can just make out their hands very slowing detaching as they take in the horror!]
Amanda: Ohhh my gooosssshhh!!!…
… OHHHHHH!!!!! THIS IS AWFUL!!!!
I love how as she says this, she absent-mindedly sets to rights a flowerpot on the roof of her car which had been on it’s side! tee heee..
Lee is just quiet- errr umm.. shock!!
Amanda: OHHH this is just terrible!!!! OH my gosh!!!
Oh this little flower shop guy is really cute! What he says here is classic smk!
flower guy: ohh hooo what happened to my store? (sobbing!) – funny! He does the same thing Amanda just did!! he absent-mindedly picks up a vase and puts it back the right way! LOL!!
Lee: sir.. believe me!
flower guy: we would have delivered!!!
ROFL!!!!! I love that line!!
Amanda: sir I’m really sorry it wasn’t my fault…
… The accelerator was jammed…
[aha! maybe the maker of Amanda’s first car didn’t want to be a part of that plot line! LOL!!!]
…I couldn’t make it stop.
Lee: what about your brakes?
Amanda: I had no brakes. No emergency brakes! nothing!!! (quickly turning back to flower guy)
…I’m really very so-
Lee realises the significance here.. Someone is trying to kill Amanda.. and.. it isn’t even anything to do with the agency! Yet again!!!
Realisation dawns on Amanda…
…and Lee is quiet- that means things have gotten serious!!!! Amanda turns back to Lee: Lee you don’t suppose??
Lee : yes I do… I’ll have our boys down at the lab check it out.
[no women in the lab??!!!]
Weeeeell flower guy isn’t coping: Check the car out?!…..What about my store?
Lee: ahhh it will be taken care of believe me!
IMHO Lee is trying to help this guy, but he doesn’t quite cut through..
and flower guy seems to get even more agitated! .. Amanda on the other hand gives the guy what he needs.. she gives him her details and tells him that it will be fixed. something concrete! well done Amanda! Does it seem for a moment like Lee isn’t sure this is a good idea?? but it does calm flower guy down which is the main thing..
surely Lee was going to have the agency pay for this?? I mean who else would? LOL maybe the cops??!!! yeah!! get Tuggy to pay for it!!! I do love though how at this stage of the show-there is zero mention of Amanda having to claim her insurance!!!
Lee grabs Amanda by the arm, trying to get her attention again now the flower guy has gone and she’s taking in the damage again!
Lee suddenly sounds like his nose is all congested when it’s time for his close up- flower allergies?!!
Aha! Lee says Amanda hadn’t been able to identify the killer from the mugshots- right! well that clears that up! So she did go down and try- guess it was yesterday- glad he said that!! But if she did that.. wouldn’t the baddies have followed her to IFF? I guess they might not have known what that was.. Anyway Lee suggests she try and create a composite sketch of the killer. Amanda says she was about to go do that for ‘Officer’ Tuggy (LOL!). Lee says he will talk to Tuggy- this is an agency matter now – whooooo intense Leeeeeeee!!! swoony! I know this could be because it’s the senator’s aide.. but I get the vibe that it’s definitely an agency matter now because of what just happened to Amanda swoooooon!!! Because Lee didn’t talk to Tuggy yesterday when he knew about the senator’s aide!!
Lee: I’ll drive you to the agency, and I’ll send some of our boys back here for your car.
[Ohhhhh swwoooony Amanda doesn’t even need to ask what is going to happen with her all important car anymore- Lee just takes care of it!!! couldn’t you die???!!!!! Love it!! I guess after the whole fiasco of Car Wars it is burned on Lee’s brain that Amanda must have a car to pick up the kids from school and do errands! btw- why ‘boys from the agency’?? women don’t drive cars? I guess they don’t work in vehicle recovery… yep stereotypical sex roles are alive and well at IFF..]
Next thing, we see that Lee is actually in Billy’s office- but watching Amanda at work out in the bullpen! Awh!!!
Lee talking to Billy: whoever this guy is he’s trying to kill Amanda because she saw Chris Gelles’ murder.
I’m worried about her Billy.
Lee turns back to look at Amanda again!!!
oh swoon..Thank Goodness Billy doesn’t comment on Lee’s concern for Amanda – it only makes Lee defensive! This way.. Lee is free to show his care and concern for Amanda openly.. and I am free to swoon!
Hmm sounds like Lee still has a head cold.. I guess BB had come down with a cold that day. Poor BB!
Before I continue with this scene.. I’m going to finish up for now.. I’ll be back with more when I can.. though don’t be surprised if posts come a little less frequently at the moment – I’m heading into a busy time the next three weeks.. but I’ll do the best I can to keep the posts coming –[as always I’ll be moderating though] A little smk is good for the soul!!! It would be great to hear what you think!! byeee!
