Billy hands over the shadow file to Sylvia.
I remember thinking the manila folders with all the personnel info in them were ridiculous in Spiderweb.. but LOL! This soooo is ridiculous! tee hee.. Why were real personnel files (civilian or not) sitting on a shelf next to the shadow file?? on the same looking discs in the same looking covers?? Haaaa! [actually.. it’s rather galling-don’t civilians deserve the same level of protection as any agent?!]
Not even June Phelps can be blamed for that..
Actually it’s all Lee’s fault- Lee this is what happens when you charm other women- you end up putting Amanda’s life in danger one way or another!
Billy says there are nearly 300 made up people on the shadow file.. and who does she pick? tee heee.. you gotta love smk coincidences.. without them there is no episode!
Aha! FSA is the Federal Security Agency.. got it now.. smk learns me lots 😉
– Though I preferred the ones KC (Food Science Australia) and Jestress (Full speed ahead) came up with in the comments of post 1!
Sylvia leaves Billy’s office to pick a new identity as Lee arrives.. Hmm I’m not sure what to make of Lee here.. is he checking out Sylvia? I’m really not sure [is this a case of shadow shock?! 😉 every woman Lee looks at he is flirting with? LOL!!! or maybe he does check her out- I’ll leave this one up to you guys to tell me what to think haaaa!
My goodness.. so far I’m getting the vibe that Lee doesn’t actually have a job to do at the agency
Lee: new recruit? [ Naughty Lee.. he assumes an attractive woman is a new recruit- not a senior agent!! I think that guess is rather telling- if a man Lee’s age had been in there Lee would not have assumed it was a new recruit IMHO.. don’t get me started! 🙂 ]
Billy: hardly. That’s Sylvia Sampson, she’s been an agent longer than you have. From Federal security in Houston.
Hmm.. so there is no ‘need to know’ between Lee and Billy huh???!!!! Lee does not need to know about where Sylvia works! [I love how the concept of ‘Need to know’ is completely forgotten when introducing a character’s back story ]
Lee: ahh.. what’s she doing here?
Oh my..so nosey! Lee get yourself a cup of coffee and relax.. better yet.. get your slippers, a cognac and a pipe.. and have a good gossip Lee..
Billy: I don’t know. Something to do with Teldar corporation girlfriend [okay I exaggerate with the ‘girlfriend’ but it’s a good thing Sylvia didn’t tell him or it would be all over town – oh my! ]
Lee whistles: that’s pretty high tech stuff huh. [yeah! for a girl! tee hee.. gag! 😉 okay okay.. I’m taking some creative licence with the ridiculous conversation here! Just please don’t call Sylvia o’ne of the best’- or she’s doomed!!!! gah!!]
Billy watches Sylvia admiringly through the window: Piece of cake for Sylvia. Look at the way she runs that computer.
ohhh KC you have ruined this for me!!!
All I can picture is Billy’s upcoming impression! haaaaa.. See the smk memes thread at Neds for KC’s fab meme I’m referring to- or maybe we can tempt KC to post it in comments when that scene comes up.. tee heee..
Billy: she’s a genuine whiz.
Why is Lee laughing? cos Billy thinks she’s great? I see he has his backup ID badge on again!! [Yes KC well spotted ]
Okay okay Billy…we get it.. Retzig is bad news!!!! oh wait.. that was last episode.. this week it is : Sylvia is a whiz on computers!!! Again and again!! we all got it??!! Pretty sure we’ve all got it!!! If anyone hasn’t got it, they’re gonna get it! 😉
Sylvia has hit the jackpot: good. good! Same age, tall, brunette, yeah that’ll do nicely.
She picks up the phone and orders the ID for this tall brunette..
Sylvia: yes I’d like a full equipment package on file number 36794D as in dog, G please….
Uh oh.. cue the weird music.. the camera pans around and we find Sylvia has picked out Amanda’s profile for her cover ID.. [what are the odds??!!! ] Now we know Amanda’s file number!
…the Amanda King file. Thank you. I’ll be down in five minutes.
[Wow.. Sylvia and Amanda are the same age?? she must have started young at the agency! good for her!] Can you make out all the info on the screen? Can someone confirm with me? Let’s see..
Amanda King, Nee West
4247 Maplewood Drive
Hair: Brown; Eyes: Brown
Height: 5’ 7 1/2 ; Weight 115 Lbs
Divorcee; Mother of two boys,
Phillip, Ten, Jamie, Eight;
Lives with Mother, Dottie West
[LOL they spelt Dotty’s name wrong haaa- does anyone keep track of the boy’s ages? that sort of thing gives me a brain strain is it correct?]
So funny how Sylvia doesn’t even shut down the file or hand back the disc.. she just walks off and leaves Amanda’s file open for all to see. (they can even see her weight! eek!! now why isn’t that under maximum security???)
…But wait!! it’s ok!! she is such a whiz she can just tap a computer, say ‘thanks pal!’ [Or was that thanks ‘Hal’ 😉 tee hee] and walk off – and they will close their own files for her.. she really is a Magic Computer Whiz!! I guess in computer talk pal really does mean pal! Not like when Lee says it On to Teldar! [Is it just me or does Teldar sound like a space ship??]
Next thing we see is Sylvia Aka Amanda King busy at work in the computer pool of Teldar- this room they are working in is too funny.. not a fabric in sight.. it must be as noisy as a boiler room in there!
At the end of Sylvia’s first day.. her co-worker offers her a ride. Sylvia responds: ‘Oh my gosh! I forgot my grocery list!’
– now wait!! did the computer know that Amanda says ‘ Oh my gosh?!!!’ [Good thing Karen didn’t get into that file 😉 ]
-oh my gosh!!! Does it also have a history of the men she has dated?? her likes and dislikes?? can it put on a tux and go out with her?? sorry.. gettin carried away! I always loved that comeback from Amanda – she was so feisty to start with.. you remember which episode that was? Sylvia has a red coat and a red handbag? whooo the computer must have told her Amanda likes matchy matchy!!
Sylvia hides and waits for the lights to go out.. man, Sylvia this is very risky!! Actually she is as careless as Lee LOL..but not being the star of the show- she can’t get away with it!
She has no excuse for being there.. she would have been better off just accessing that info during the day.. it is obvious she is up to no good when she logs in after hours in a darkened room!!
Ahhhh time to meet the baddies..blah blahhh 21 million dollar write down.. blah blahhh..profit projections.. blah blah..
whoooo these baddies are boring me already.. How to make it interesting?? well…
Welcome to baddies randomly holding weird props World!!
We meet Craig! and his fascinating Red stress ball! His expertise isn’t profit projections.. LOL.. we cut straight back to the Boss, Mr Macey..
– and his Bonsai! whoooo sooo interesting!!! 😉
Oh my goodness this is more riveting than an IFF doco.. a weird little red light tells them someone is being naughty! that is funny.. so high tech!! not! The Red File?? Nooooo not the Red File!! ??!!
Craig’s last name is Eiger? I thought Eiger was the bad guy in Times they are a changin.. man.. there must have been someone called Eiger who stole from one of the writers or something!
Cavanaugh, the numbers guy tries to shut ‘Amanda King’ out of the red file..
Sylvia has opened the red file!!!!
Too funny.. did Sylvia just type ‘please’?! rofl!!!
Sooo that’s how you get into high security files!!!
Poor Sylvia.. she needed back up..
why didn’t she have someone like Lee or Amanda to help her??
Why did she go up to the roof? Maybe she knew they knew about her I guess.. So sad!!!! Whoa.. Sylvia fell of the roof (did she get shot? not sure..), straight onto the roof of a truck which is driven off..
The baddies have no idea what has happened to her.. and if their information leak has been stopped.
Uh oh.. and they have the name ‘Amanda King’?? oh this can’t be good!!
As always I’d love to hear your thoughts on this one.. LOL I think I’m being kinda narky about this episode so far – tee hee.. but I’m enjoying it! these smk coincidences are so ridiculous.. and it’s all part of the charm Okay byeee for now!
