The baddies are waiting for Amanda to come home.. here she comes! Sooo how did the baddies know that was Amanda King’s car? [they start their car before she pulls into her house?? weird!]
Amanda gets out of her car with her groceries.. This is the second episode in a row where Amanda and food seem to be constantly separated for the episode! What is this: the agency diet plan?
The baddies pull up in their car and ask Amanda for directions – you know with her work for the agency and how many times she has now been kidnapped from her home, you’d think she’d see two men in suits and a sedan and stay far away!
As Amanda enthusiastically gives the men directions to Barbara St, they pull a gun on her.. a big one!
Eiger: one word and it’s your last… get in the car lady.
Amanda hesitates and tries to leave the groceries.. I think she just wants her family to have some food! but… Eiger tells her she has to bring them with her.
It is amazing no one at the agency figured this could happen-I think this probably doesn’t have any meaning, it’s just required to keep the plot moving. ugh.. but it makes the agency look inept and neglectful of Amanda’s safety!
[Lee included and I’m pretty sure that is not something the writers want to be conveying!] The writing on this episode is IMHO nnnnnot great.. not only does the logic of the agency make no sense, the logic of the baddies is lame also.. I’ll explain why in a minute! [though LOL you’ve probably already figured it out yourself! Okay.. I’ll state the obvious in a minute! ]
So, off the baddies drive.. gun pointing at Amanda.. Though they never even check that this is actually someone called Amanda King!
[Is it just me or is Amanda’s hair looking a little shorter here?] LOL!! Amanda is such a trooper.. she is becoming quite an old hand at being kidnapped at gunpoint isn’t she!
Amanda: why are you doing this?
Cavanaugh: we thought you were dead. The papers were very helpful with their retraction.
Amanda: this whole thing is a terrible mistake.
Eiger: why don’t you put the groceries on the floor and relax. [yes relax while I point a gun at you… uh huh..]
LOL see behind Eiger? you can tell they are on the warner bros street. we see the same buildings a few times in this scene.. it’s that part of warners where they filmed dukes of hazzard.. but.. I digress!
When Amanda offers to rearrange the groceries I guess we are thinking Amanda is acting weird to cope with the stress.. so does Eiger and Cavanaugh.. Suckers!
Eiger: How thoughtful of you.
Cavanaugh: who are you working for?
Amanda doesn’t answer. She just gives them a look and keeps rearranging those groceries.
Cavanaugh continues: they gave you a pretty convincing cover, you live with your mother and two kids Jamie and Phillip ha!…
…Did they really find kids for you or do they just exist on paper on some computer somewhere. [I don’t think he understands how computers work.. they are not full of paper tee hee – maybe he thinks there is literally a red file in the computer at Teldar haaa! ]
Amanda: No, they’re real children and that’s my real mother.
Okay soooo the baddies think ‘Amanda King’ is a cover she used to break into Teldar.. and the kids and mother are all part of the cover?? If everything else has been made up – why would they expect her to have used her real address?? whahahhaaaaaa!!! And okay, if she was super dumb, and did- why would Amanda still be living at that address after she escaped Teldar? They don’t even know this person on their back seat is called Amanda King, ever or if she is the person who broke into Teldar! These are some dumb baddies..
Eiger attaches the silencer to his gun with flair.. : well that’s very touching.
Cavanaugh: well the papers will be right next time…
…You only die twice Mrs King!
These baddies are awful.. get em Amanda! No one makes a pun on a James Bond movie title and gets away with it!!
Amanda sprays them with her whipped cream!!!! whooo hooo!!!! Surprise!! Amanda’s lucky the guy with the gun doesn’t just shoot her.. but I like it!
This feels like early Amanda don’t you think? good stuff!!
Gives new meaning to the phrase ‘ I creamed them!’
It even looks like Amanda’s car springs to life, tracks Amanda down and tries to help her.. but at the last moment moves out of the way.. The car needs a name.. Hmm.. anyone?? [How’s that Vehicle Patrol going KC?! can’t wait to see what goodies you’ve found! ]
ROFL! did I just hear that?? there is clown music! I swear.. *Zzzzzzip!* it’s clown music!!! You hear it when the car suddenly, miraculously, automatically pulls over to the side of the road to let Amanda out 😉 Amanda runs away –oh and those two clowns errr I mean baddies (Bozo and Krusty?) why.. it was very good of them to both be spontaneously and inexplicably knocked unconscious by a bit of whipped cream in the face!
honk honk!! two guys and a gun getting creamed by a woman armed with groceries.. all it needs is a cherry on top!
..Eiger wakes from his whipped cream stupor: Let’s get out of here!
Cavanaugh: where is she?
Eiger: forget it she’s gone now let’s get out of here before some helpful neighbour calls the police.
Love how they reverse the car and the back door is still wide open! Krusty and Bozo leave this circus! Honk Honk!! [btw- I find clowns creepy thanks to Stephen King’s IT – what episode did that come up in ?? I know we’ve discussed it before! oh well.. ]
Back to IFF, Lee comes running into Billy’s office with news..
and finds Billy on the floor searching for a microdot- he sneezed it away!! Not just any microdot.. the Dardenelles microdot!!! whoooooo!!
Lee: which direction did you sneeze?
Billy: Out! It was a big sneeze!!
rofl.. Those darn sneezes.. they happen to me when I am holding Microdots too Billy..
Memo to Agency training Dept: Urgent- provide training on sneezing out safely!
I don’t really get this microdot moment.. how to have Lee tell Billy background info and keep it entertaining? Lee only had to deliver a few lines and it was done – I do think its cute and all but it feels like they are trying drag out this episode to make it longer.. meh!!..
Lee has spoken to an Argentine contact, Crandall, who was in San Rafin at the same time as Sylvia (and the Rojas assassination I guess) and his suspicions are the same as Sylvia’s.
Rofl!! Billy’s desk is on wheels! I will resist commenting on Lee’s butt in the air.. I will. I will.. oh? too late!
Francine walks in on them on the floor and has a laugh at them.. all a bit random..Now if Billy had been standing and Lee was kneeling and passing him the microdot- that would have been funny.. they could have made it look like Lee was proposing to Billy with a microdot.. but alas.. an opportunity wasted….
Francine chuckles away..
and Billy cuts her off: One smart remark from you young lady and you’ll be filling in forms in Sheboygen till Christmas!
Francine: I see nothing out of the ordinary.
LOL! I’ll leave it here for the moment before things start getting really weird! any thoughts you’d like to share? questions? Who loves the clown gag with the music?? anyone loathe it?? Feel free to share your view Anyone not find these baddies dumb?! I do love smk’s dumb baddies… Anyone love clowns? [If so-sorry!] okay byeee everyone!
