Time for Lee to check his informant. LOL.. yep he seems to only have one!
Lee goes looking for Auggie… ha! It seems he has moved on to a new business- ‘Auggie Swan’s discount Limo service’ – well that is hilarious! there isn’t suppose to be anything discount about Limos!
Lee pulls up in his car, gets out and can’t find anyone there.. finally he hears a power tool being used in the distance..
Lee heads over there and kicks the guy’s foot, while he’s under the car using a power tool? Come on!! He doesn’t even know for sure it’s Auggie! Someone angrily yells: Hey!!! What the- (Auggie sees it’s Lee and is suddenly no longer angry) Lee!
Lee: what are you doing under there? I thought you said you own this place?
Auggie: Yeah would you believe it, my mechanics quit this morning.
Lee: maybe you should try paying them.
Auggie has a laugh at this.. and starts taking off his apron.
Lee: Ohhh what’s this? what’s this??? the latest fashion from Paris?
[Ah Lee.. so fashion conscious! come on Auggie- want Lee to take you seriously? you gotta look good! ]
Auggie: those lousy little creeps they took all my coveralls. This (the apron) was the only thing left in the rag pile.
Lee: I don’t know Auggie I think you should have stuck with the Muuud Wrestling bar.
Auggie: Ah! Lee! That was a real dirty business.
[oh boy.. I think this whole set up is in aid of that one gag.. but I won’t go on about it.. mud slinging is lost ground ahem]
Lee tells Auggie Hans Retzig is back in town and Lee wants information. Given Hans Retzig is oh so scary.. Auggie’s reluctant..
Auggie: Come on Lee! What’s more scary than death and violence?
Lee: How about the IRS?
Lee threatens him with an audit.. I like Auggie.. but this scene is a bit slow – or is it just me? I would have preferred the scene if Amanda had been in it.. and Auggie was offering to fix her car for free
Auggie is going to ask around and see what he can find out for Lee.
Sooooo Lee finds Auggie and basically insults him.. I don’t understand why Lee does that! Okay.. while Auggie is trying to recruit Amanda into muuud wrestling: I get the attitude, but when you have just showed up at his work to get information – i.e you need something from him, why insult the guy?! and worse!!! It works!
Yeah….come on Auggie.. make Lee happy!!!
LOL! Of course Lee has to comment on Auggie’s threads!!
Lee starts to walk away, but turns back to add: Oh and Auggie! Nice cuffs!
(Auggie looks down at the cuffs confused)
…I hope you got a good deal on the tux.
You know, I never got that final line.. other than it being funny that Lee, the tux expert, comments on the tux – but reading the script I now see the gag was suppose to be that the sleeves on the jacket were really short or the cuffs were really long – i.e.. it fit really badly – but here? I don’t think it fits badly so I didn’t get it!
Back to the bullpen, and Amanda confronts Lee over his orange theft.. (He’s been caught Orange handed! ) heheheee..
Amanda: do you have my orange?
Lee: your orang- that was your orange?
Amanda: I brought it from home this morning I didn’t have time for breakfast.
Lee: ahhh.. I’m sorry. I really am sorry I- You must be starved!
Right on cue! Francine comes in carrying a box of lunch orders – which we’ve never seen the whole series!
[Or is that the complete collection of audio tapes of her soiree last night? okay.. I couldn’t resist giving her a taste of her own medicine!]
Wait a minute! Let me savour this!! Up to now, Lee has been super stressed and intense, wanting Retzig. Amanda asks Lee if he has her orange and he is immediately apologetic and concerned – I think the old Lee would have said: ‘yeah so? The federal agent always gets the fresh produce! ‘ 😉
Lee points to the box: we ordered sandwiches to just work through lunch, why don’t you take mine okay?
Amanda: oh noo I couldn’t
At the same time Lee motions to Francine to bring over his sandwich.
Lee: Yes come on . come on.
Amanda: No really I couldn’t do that.
Lee: Amanda I’m not hungry. This whole Retzig thing has got me too upset to eat. Please!
Francine arrives with the all important sandwich!
Francine holds out the sandwich: Chicken on white extra mayo.
Amanda snatches it hungrily! tee hee.. see now Amanda that’s what repression does to ya..
The smile of Lee’s face gets wiped right off when he sees her snatching at it – he realises she was more than ‘kinda’ hungry maybe?! [in the wide shot he is smiling again.. LOL]
Amanda to Lee: thank you so much.
He smiles..[awh! I just love how Lee is happy to make Amanda happy these days! the little boy is well and truly becoming a good man: to me that is more swoony than anything!]
Love how Amanda grabs the sandwich!!
Very cute how Lee turns as he enters Billy’s office to have one last look at Amanda enjoying his sandwich
Why didn’t Amanda have a sandwich coming for her lunch?? and.. why do we never again see them bring in sandwiches?
LOL-Spoiler alert 😉 … if this sandwich is laced with poison in this episode? I think I just answered my own question! haaa
I’ll finish up there for the moment! what do you all make of Lee and Auggie??!! I’m hungry.. I’m going to go eat! byeee!
