Sooo.. we see an exterior of Lee’s apartment.. my my there’s some weirdness going on here! But.. I won’t dwell on that for now, I’ll keep going and come back to it at the end of this post.
Lee returns to find his front door open..
Lee’s spy senses are in overdrive! He pulls out his gun – probably terrified at what has happened to Amanda.. oh yeah… and maybe Francine
He finds Francine just coming to on the floor. Lee helps her up while she moans in agony! Lee: Francine, are you alright?
Francine: Oh, I don’t know..
LOL Lee isn’t exactly gentle helping Francine here! tee hee!
Lee: come on get on your feet. [Hmm wasn’t he telling Amanda in OOADP no let me carry you –you can’t walk! ahem.. btw- I am not going to post a pic of Lee getting Francine off the floor-I am in hysterics here.. because the pics don’t look PG at all!! argh!! ]
Francine mumbles: I don’t usually sleep on the floor.
[even half concussed she has attitude- well.. it’s consistent! ]
Lee helps Francine over to the couch..
Lee: come on sit down here.
He has a look at the back of Francine’s head. ouchie.. that vase really should have taken Francine’s head off!
Lee: What happened?
Francine: I don’t know. One minute I’m making cold cuts, the next thing I’m out on the floor cold. You know maybe Amanda doesn’t like Pastrami on rye. [well I can see why Amanda wouldn’t like sandwiches now!]
It seems to take Lee a moment to compute here.
Lee: Amanda did this?
Francine: Amanda was the only one in here with me, we locked ourselves in.
Lee is freaking out now!!!! He starts with the rubbing his brow..
Francine: I think she’s having some kind of relapse. [eh? err she is drugged.. relapse? whatever! ]
Lee: where could she have gone. In her condition she’s so vulnerable, she could be in danger right now!
Francine: in her condition the whole society could be in danger right now!
Lee: yeah. [ oh yeah.. society.. I love it – Lee’s only worried about Amanda!] …I better call Billy and get an APB out. [Billy does that? the boss?? tee hee.. ahh smk I love your work organisational structure! ]
Whooo Lee mumbles intensely as he picks up the phone: I just hope she’s not in trouble.
Awhhh I’ve never heard that line before! Swoony!!!!
We don’t have to wait for long to find out where Amanda is! she’s home!
She makes her way through the back side door.. finding the boys watching a western on tv.. Amanda: hello boys! [so funny, she’s all business here! Not her usual self wanting a kiss]
boys: hey mum.
Amanda: Hello Mother.
Dotty: Amanda, I was wondering when you would get ho-
Amanda hurries past Dotty, not pausing.. she has business to do!
Dotty sees she’s in a hurry and leaves her to it.. though typical Dotty- she draws her own (wrong) conclusion explaining Amanda’s behaviour!
Dotty: I guess she didn’t get that raise..
Does Dotty’s hair look different to you? Looks the same to me.. maybe Emilio just set it..
Maid Dotty brings the boys their milk and cookies.. err don’t get me started on this!
Amanda rushes into the kitchen again, not really making eye contact with Dotty..
Amanda: why isn’t this thing Loaded?! 😆 😆
Dotty has no idea what Amanda is on about.. but leaves her to it..
Amanda rifles through the drawer, and finds some batteries – rofl!!!! Did anyone think she had a gun before we saw what she was carrying? I can’t remember what I thought!
Dotty joins the boys watching tv, half listening to Amanda..
Amanda picks up the phone, dials a number and loads up while she waits for the person to pick up!
Amanda: Hello, get me Melrose please this is King here.
King: Bill! … Amanda! Listen I’ve been thinking about this Retzig thing and it’s gone way too far.
At this, we see Billy in his office.. LOL.. he tells Lee to listen in.
Bill whispers: pick up on three.
Lee listens in..
Bill replies: yes Ma’am. Yes Ma’am I’ll send someone right over.
[How does Billy know where she is?? Does she say while Billy is telling Lee to pick up? me confused…must be all those darn chicken salad sandwiches I’ve been eating in the hopes of dreaming of kissing Lee.. err I mean Rick! 😉 ]
[Yes BJo, I am still loving those earrings on Francine- even if they are major ear buttons!] ohhh my.. the look on Lee’s face here is hilarious as he listens in!!!! And Lee hand fans- nice close up for you all!! 🙂
Lee: is this Amanda or John Wayne?!
John Wayne (Amanda): yeah we’ve gotta nail this sucker and nail him good.
Ohhh I had forgotten how flippin funny this scene is!!!! LOL!!!!
I think Amanda needs a hairdryer like this one!
Dotty turns back to the western the boys are watching saying to herself: good Amanda. People respect assertiveness.
Francine loves this!!! Not..
Francine: Ohh God help us!
Lee: I better get over there.
Bill keeps on placating John Wayne while Lee heads over there.. far too brightly: Yes Ma’am!!
John Wayne: we’ve got to put more into it Bill! We’re gonna take no prisoners!
Amanda hangs up and strides out of the house telling dotty: I have some unfinished business at the office Mother.
Dotty calls: are you going to be home for supper? we’re going to goofy golf tonight!
John Wayne yells back: we’ll see!!
Amanda heads out to the front of her house, with her fully loaded hair dryer- uh oh!!!! this could get ugly!!! LOL though at least the hair will be well styled 😉
Actually I’ve always thought Lee’s partner should have a portable hairdryer on hand.. should his hair need a touch up!!
Lookin good catches bad guys! 😉
Dotty doesn’t know what to think.. well at least Amanda is being assertive!! 🙂
I’ll finish up there for the moment, though I’ll just go back to Lee’s apartment – KC great catch on this being the same exterior in ALGHITM!!!!
Here is the exterior we see in this ep:
We see this as Francine and Amanda arrive..
I think we are suppose to think Lee has completely moved.. but heck, maybe he has just moved to a different apartment in the same complex!
In this episode, the shot zooms up to the top floor..
LOL.. now Lee’s apartment is on the top floor (8th floor? In SBTB his apartment number was 805- that means it is the 8th floor no?) interesting!
Though in A little sex, a little scandal the exterior shot had it as being on the second floor! Here:
[with the magic view that looked like it was 20 storey’s up!]
Maybe it’s a security thing.. they never show us exactly which floor Lee lives on! It’s on a need to know basis!
It looks like he has redecorated since he entertained Randy Baby – did she throw some plates or something Lee? the windows don’t match either.. whatever!
Views in DOA:
& in ALSALS:
Lee’s apartment is now 305- doesn’t that mean third floor?![new coffee table too!]
& in ALSALS:
Looks like Lee has painted his door too
Oh well.. I’ll finish up this little side trip into decorating for now.. You know, I never noticed how Lee has red carpet in his apartment – ewwwww!
Love love love to hear from you!!! even if it’s just to say hi and you are reading!!! If you’d like to share more – I’d love that too!! byeee for now!
