Lee’s last words are still ringing in the air.. here’s a swoony reminder- Lee: Alright. but I want this to go down on the record- there’s only one reason I am going through with it..
[the reason: Amanda!!!]
There’s a knock at the door..
Billy spits out: Yes!!
It’s Fronan: Ahh excuse me, but ah has anyone seen Mrs King?
Billy has a go at him for losing her again.. but Fronan responds: It’s the drug sir, and she seems to have an exceptional talent for getting away from us.
[tee hee! Amanda is resourceful and not to be underestimated!! Drug or noooo Drug! ]
At this we hear glass crashing out in the bullpen.
Along comes Amanda down the hallway being carried by two guards. LOL!
Lee: Alright.. hold it hold it!
He stops the guards. The look on Amanda’s face here is too funny!!
Everybody is silent a moment taking in what she’s done.. [and maybe trying to figure out where you find a putter at the agency- has she been down to visit leatherneck?! there’s a fan fic!!]
Amanda: well… (to Lee).. I was practicing goofy golf… [I’d say she’s mastered goofy everything!] … I hit the ball sooo hard!
Love how Lee humours her being ridiculous.. this gentle Lee is so swoon worthy I am swooning all over the place..
Fronan quietly to Billy and Lee: perhaps if she were in a more familiar environment she would revert to more normal behaviour.
Billy: Hmm maybe you’re right. You certainly can’t send her home like this.
At this Amanda looks up from lining up her putt and gives a goofy chuckle- hilarious!!!!!
I just love the ways she does this.. and brilliant editing here too!
Lee: what about my place. She’s been there before, it’s safe…
[Oh Lee.. you just told people Amanda is comfortable at your place and.. Amanda has been kidnapped from your apartment twice – okay okay.. it was the other apartment.. but still.. oh what am I saying!! Yes! Lee’s apartment is a brilliant idea! ]
… Francine can babysit.
Oh great, now Lee gets to boss Francine around? you know.. I kind of empathise with her!!! [don’t get me wrong, Lee’s my main man! but.. I think Francine gets a raw deal here!]
Francine immediately: Ohhh!!!!
Billy interrupts her protests: It is worth a try. Francine.
Billy kind of waves at her like just do it.
Francine: Now wait a minute, this is Lee’s apartment, and why should I-
Billy: and who’s going to co-ordinate that alpha team.
Errr why can’t Francine?! A bit of a slap in the face for Francine here.. Billy says who is going to co-ordinate that alpha team- like Lee is the only one who can do it? ouch… ugh.. Not fair! Okay okay.. I know we get a fab scene between Amanda and Francine.. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful I’ll go with it.. I just sniff a bit of sexism goin on here!!! you know me..never mind me..
Billy completely dismisses Francine: now you better get over there before she causes anymore trouble.
Billy walks off..
Lee: that hole’s pretty far off the floor…
Amanda looks up and lets out another laugh…
holding the putter up to Francine like they’re deciding who bats first in baseball!
Francine seems to recover quite well from being steamrolled by Billy and Lee here..
Francine: somebody should warn goofy golf. Maybe she rises above it for Amanda’s sake.. because she needs her.. ahem..
Francine wins!: aha! come on let’s go.
I love how as Francine grabs Amanda to go, she resists a second and looks to Lee- like she doesn’t want to leave him (well.. that’s how I’m interpreting it! )
Once Francine and Amanda are gone, Lee isn’t smiling and making light of her golf anymore. It’s clear he is very worried about her.. more than he was letting on in front of Amanda..
LOL I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of Francine’s behaviour here guys!
Amanda and Francine enter Lee’s apartment.. Amanda doing a little spin as she enters.. LOL!
hey can anyone make out the pictures? One is the Lee and Billy photo he had in his old place.. but I can’t make out the others! anyone? Is this the first time we’ve seen this view during the daytime?? I think it might be! It looks really fake! LOL!
Amanda plonks herself on the couch.. LOL she sits on the baseball and that’s how she finds it.. I always wondered how she got it..
Francine: now, what can we do to make you more comfortable??
My goodness.. so attentive! Is this Francine trying to figure out what Amanda gets up to in Lee’s apartment??!!!
Amanda picks up the baseball and flips it up for Francine to catch saying: Let’s ahhh light some candles!!!
Francine puts the baseball back on the table.
Amanda: good catch Francine. [I love that Amanda is completely out of it.. but still she complements Francine’s catch! ]
Francine: Candles. Lee have you over for
errr candlelight dinners??
Amanda without hesitation: all the time.
whahahahaaaaaa!!!! love how Amanda says that!!!!! ha haaaaa!!!! This is one of my fave lines of the episode!! We know this isn’t true.. but the drugs are making reality well.. not reality..
I think the candles Amanda is remembering are the candles she saw Lee had lit for Randy baby then..
[Fair’s fair: here’s Lee talking to his frozen cake! ] Amanda did come in and share the cake with Lee- so maybe they shared it by candlelight???!! hmm this too suggests this episode could be a little earlier?? I’m open to it! thoughts anyone?
Francine’s reaction is priceless: Oh….
trying to sound light, but I think she is busting to find out more! ..sure.. candles.. good.. here we go.
Francine brings over the candles as Amanda fluffs up a cushion.. tee hee..how is it that KJ makes fluffing up a cushion so funny??!!!
Amanda lets out a huge, childlike yawn. and fiddles and fluffs with the cushion some more haaaaa!!!!
Francine: you know, it’s been a real long day for everybody. I think that you should maybe.. lay down and just take a little nap.
Amanda starts rocking on the couch back and forth adamant she won’t sleep (like a kid!): not sleepy.
She keeps rocking and smiling.. she never stops moving! I swear she is like a little kid!
Francine: Not sleepy?
Amanda makes a noise like- nope!
Francine gets the matches: I’ll light the candles.
Amanda begins to stare off into space.. and slowly her head falls to the pillow..as she is focused on the match lighting the candle..
…and with that.. Amanda’s completely out to it.. and once again in Amanda dream land!
Oh and why is Amanda suddenly so great at golf, when in Magic Bus she couldn’t play at all and was a ‘sore loser’? 😉
Also, now I’ve had a look at the script of this moment with Amanda and Francine I am sooooo glad they did it the way they did!!
In the script Amanda responds to Francine’s query differently.. here:
Francine: Lee had you over for candlelight dinners?
Amanda: No, but it seems that whenever I did come by, I was always interrupting his candlelight soirees for someone else.
– and that’s it!!! Pretty dull huh!!! What we got is soooo much better. It’s my favourite moment in this little exchange that Amanda sticks it to Francine.. haaa! What do you think? do tell!!
Well that’s it for now.. If you’re reading along with us- don’t be shy!!! feel free to jump in with a comment.. even if it’s just to say hi and you are reading and enjoying the show with us! Anyone here knowledgeable about golf and know what Lee was talking about with the putter??!! Looking forward to hearing from you. byeee for now!
