Wow.. Lee gets dusted by that sand bag doesn’t he.. Retzig arrives to gloat! And stop Lee from getting to his gun. argh!
Amanda passively stands next to Retzig. Guess she has faded back into loopy land again and has forgotten Retzig is bad?
Bet Lee gets up still lookin good.. Yep! He managed to not get any on his face.. (and the world is grateful…)
Retzig: Well, isn’t this a cosy group. One unarmed agent, one drugged out civilian…
… and one little bottle of antidote…
… The object of everyone’s attention.
Lee silently seethes! [I think Lee is disgusted with Retzig and teasing Amanda with the antidote- get him Lee!!]
You know what I find hard to watch here? Amanda is so far gone that she is standing next to Retzig and doing nothing – while Retzig points a gun at unarmed Lee.. I find that really hard to watch.. I know Lee knows Amanda can’t help it – but I think Amanda would be devastated that she failed to help Lee.. does that make any sense? Amanda is no help at all.
Retzig: did you bring the plans?
Lee: I brought them to the park! Where were you then?!
Retzig: that’s too bad. Well it doesn’t matter I’ve grown tired of this particular game anyway.
[Is it just me or is Lee talking to Amanda with his eyes here??? and she’s so drugged out she has forgotten her eye language? ]
…I think it’s time I put you both out of your misery.
Retzig gives Amanda a hard shove – straight into the big pile of powder.. Nice try Lee.. he motions to stop her but he can’t.. Amanda is sent flying head first into the white stuff.. [lol I love how her legs go flying up! Is that evil of me??]
Retzig moves so that he is on the other side of Lee with Amanda now behind him. Oh yeah.. that’s makes sense not! But hey.. we’ve got to give Lee a chance to get them out of this right?!
Retzig: Anything you forgot to include in your will? [ugh.. just get on with it!]
Lee can see Amanda standing up behind Retzig.. white powder all over her face, in her eyes.. I love that Lee is undiverted by this from the seriousness of their situation..
Teee heee.. he frowns a little when he sees…
Amanda point her fully loaded hairdryer at Retzig and yell: Drop it or I’ll splatter y’all over the stage!!!!!!
I love how Amanda squints trying to get the powder out of her eyes.. [I also think it’s a nice touch that there is a single light bulb in the background.. haaa.. Amanda’s light is on..but she isn’t quite home! ]
Made even funnier by the look on Retzig’s face- like ugh you are so annoying!!
Seems Amanda has snapped out of her do nothing drug haze.. luckily! That’s Amanda, She’s lucky!
He glances behind him. Retzig: you irritate me Mrs King.. (oh goody!) …perhaps you should die first-
He turns to kills Amanda [turning his back on Lee? as if!! but hey.. who cares?!]
Ohhhh my gosh.. the look on Amanda’s face here is too funny!
Amanda yells: Dog Meat!
– and turns on her hairdryer and blinds him with powder..
way to go Amanda!! thus allowing Lee to have his action finale.. go Lee!!! take no prisoners Lee!! Nail the sucker!!! Love how Amanda stands on guard by the side, her hairdryer ready for action if need be.. giving her weapon a shake and making sure it is working.. bless her!!
Hooray.. fight’s over- Lee won! Retzig is passed out on the floor..
You know, not only is Retzig’s annoyance at Amanda funny- but it’s a wonderful contrast to Lee and his reaction to Amanda- he doesn’t find her annoying at all- and never forgets it’s the drug that’s responsible. Bless him!! Sooo where is the antidote?? While Lee is understanding, errr that doesn’t mean he has to delay! 😉 hurry up I say- not a moment to lose!
It’s too cute when Lee catches his breath after punching out Retzig and he realises what Amanda is doing .. heck quick Lee get the antidote!!
Awhhhh and Haaaa!!!
He seems to see for the first time that Amanda is standing on guard with a hairdryer! heheheee… I think Lee is very good to Amanda here warms the heart!
I think Lee looks at her in almost an endearing way.. and..it makes Amanda even more hilarious! [Pride in his eyes maybe? what do you all think?]
He walks over to John Wayne err Amanda.
I think Lee finally realises Amanda is holding a hairdryer… He needs a moment to take all this in!
Maybe he had thought she had grabbed his gun at first.. LOL!
Lee: It’s ok partner.. you.. you won’t be needing that anymore.
KJ is just brilliant here!
While ‘partner’ is reference to the western motif- I think it has wider significance here.. what do you think? [when I say this btw- I really would love to hear what you think! 🙂 ] with Lee looking at her with such pride, and having gotten through such a nasty experience with Retzig.. I think Lee is seeing that drugged out Amanda did still manage to come through for him in the end 🙂 and she is indeed very much his partner! 🙂 awhhhhhh
Amanda looks at Lee, looks back at Retzig, nods.. very businesslike.. and throws her hairdryer into Lee’s hands
[How’s that for a picture!! too funny!! ]
Amanda says: Good work Scarecrow. Bill will be pleased! Let’s get this dirt bag downtown! [Interesting she calls him scarecrow no?? that’s very rare] You know what’s really funny about this line to me? We think it is over the top hilarious because the drugs have exaggerated everything for Amanda.. but I swear Old Bill said something about getting the turkey’s downtown at the end of Life of the Party! 😉 I think we need to start collecting smk insults.. what do you think? 😉 tee heee.. Lint Picker!!! Maybe they could rival Shakespeare’s 😉 oops sorry I digress!
Lee doesn’t know what to say haaaa…
Amanda gives Lee a hard slap slap on the shoulder releasing a huge amount of powder in his face.. haa haaaa!!
Lee coughs haa!! ha haaaa.. (notice how white Amanda’s face is?? but not her neck or anything? it looks like they painted it on.. but heck.. it’s funny!) Amanda marches off leaving Lee in the dust – literally
And Lee’s response: Yes Ma’am
I love how he looks at her here..
I think he looks at her with real affection..
but.. Ok ok.. come on! hurry up Lee and give her the flippin antidote!! and then feeeeed her – whatever she wants!!! LOL!!! I hear she likes Asparagus! but please.. not sandwiches!
KJ rocked this scene!! KJ whyyyyyy did you not do more comedy??!!
