Back for a little more sex and a little more scandal! It has been quite a delay between this post and the last post.. apologies! It was entirely unexpected and uncontrollable – I would suggest reading the previous post (post 6) before continuing with this one – as the last post ended in the middle of this same scene..
On with the show! ….Still in Billy’s office, a very concerned Lee watches on as Amanda constructs the composite sketch of the killer..
Billy worries they won’t be able to decipher the code on the ‘little piece of paper found on Gelles’ body’
– weird.. it wasn’t that little!
Anyway, the tiny piece of paper is down in Cryptology with Francine and there’s hope it will be deciphered!
Lee: Francine’s with Bartlett, he’s our best crypt analyst.
Hmm and Bartlett is pretty good at executive producing too!! LOL!!! Yep- that cheeky Juanita Bartlett gets another mention??!! I guess her ‘cameo’ for Bartlett’s bottle shop did get cut out of Three Faces of Emily.. so it was her time! Oh wait!! she did get a mention in Brunettes too didn’t she?? The boys wanted to play with Billy Bartlett??
Lee: unfortunately that little piece of paper was smudged by water. It’s a wonder we can get anything at all..
LOL! I’ll say! It’s a flippin miracle! an smk miracle!
Amanda joins Lee and Billy and gives them each a copy of the sketch.LOL at how Amanda holds up the sketch to show she has it before she even comes into Billy’s office!
Lee: whoo isn’t he a charmer!.. It’s too bad you didn’t get a good look at the other one.
[Sheesh! Lee is never satisfied!! ]
Amanda audibly shivers: Whoooooooooo!!!
[yes.. audible shivers exist- you watch!!]
Amanda: Oh! yeah.. he just.. kinda gives me the willies!
Lee: Amanda don’t worry you’re safe here we have our best men…
[aie!!! no women agents huh!!! what is it with this episode and sex roles???!!!]
…staked out around your house.
Whooooo Lee swiftly moves into reassuring mode (whoooo love that mode!) oh bless him!
Amanda: I know and I appreciate it.
Ohhhh my!!! Billy!!!! are you watching this?? [nope too busy focusing on the sketch!]
Too bad.. because then he’d see what’s happening between these two!!! How fabulous!
Yep it was a good plan putting Lee and Amanda together!
Lee’s growing as a man, and an agent! I see Amanda’s diamond pendant necklace has gone in this make over errr I mean under!
Love Lee and Amanda’s exchange of mutual smiles here!!!.. awh!!
Lee: there were two perfect candidates there: Rita Holden and Leon Sachs. Both of them make their livings by putting screws to people.
[aha! thus why Lee had to meet both Rita and Sachs in the earlier scene!]
LOL! how charming! ‘Putting screws to people’ .. Hmm.. Call me crazy, but some could say that also describes Lee’s job…. from time to time..Especially if a certain very very very good friend of his is in trouble!
Billy agrees that Rita and Sachs are worth checking into and he’ll get Francine to track them down. Track them down?? Huh?? Are they missing?? Ohhhh kaaaaayyyy!Billy praises Amanda’s great work at getting the composite done of one of the killer!
…Billy do you remember that little flower shop on errr Woodrow ( as in Mrs Woodrow?! ) Wilson Blvd on 17th street that use to be-
Billy: Use to be? I just bought some flowers there last week. Have they moved?
Lee: well.. not actually moved…
(Amanda drops her head as Lee and Billy exit the room!) …more like ahh relocated.
We see the door close.. so we no longer hear the rest of Lee’s explanation.. and the next thing we hear is:
Lee is aware of Amanda the whole time- and looking out for her – awh!!! He is such a sweetie these days!! Amanda.. how could you not start to fall in love with him now huh??? He’s making it hard not to!! He’s so in tune with Amanda, taking care of her and making sure her needs are met – it’s crazy sweet!!
Lastly, we see Amanda watching from inside billy’s office.. haaaa.. cute moment.. and KJ gives us once again some fabulous, funny facial expressions!!
outfit- except for those earrings? the hair is actually not so bad.. oh wait.. she has on brown trousers and a white top?? Rita had on a white top and brown skirt in her last scene at the senator’s office.. I am starting to wonder if this is deliberate!
Time for a baddie meeting!!! Rita’s not happy they found the car… seems Rita is aware there’s a page missing out of the book..
Rita helps the kid with his ball saying ‘there you go sweetie!’
– as she goes back to conspiring to destroy the democratic system that little sweetie was born into and enjoys the freedoms of!!!
LOL!!!! she’s a real piece of work!!
So the page is from the Trick book.. You know with the way she treats these goons, she must be paying them well.. Rita gives them her orders.. make sure Amanda’s luck runs out…[ha!! if she knew how SMK works, she would have never suggested that! ] and Sachs? For a second.. I could have sworn Rita looked regretful.. as she comes to the decision that she can’t afford for Sachs to continue with his investigation.
Rita: File his last story on the obituary page!
Ouch!!! a great line!! but.. ouch!!!
Anyway I shall finish up there for now!!! Sorry for the delay.!!! I look forward to hearing what you all think – thanks for reading and back with more soon…
[sorry about the weird formatting too! ugh.. given I’ve backed these posts up in software I’ve had to convert to new software it is a little-off! .. long story but this is something I’ll just have to live with – I don’t have time to completely rewrite the posts for the rest of this episode – I hope you will be able to read it okay and it won’t spoil your smk fun!] Soooo happy to be back!!!! byeee for now!!
