And we’re back for the second installment of stats for SBTBells. Read on for pics of that lovely reunion scene I promised as well as a couple of bloopers (including a Lee hair blooper ) and a map showing where Lee lives!!
It just dawned on me that this is the second episode where Amanda does not go to the Agency. Just like Morley pointed out in TACMKid Amanda Bites post. I wonder if that has any meaning in general or in particular for this episode. What do you think? Please share! And please share any bloopers I’ve made – Lord knows they’re there somehwere!
Enjoy! And thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts –
HITS/PUNCHES/SHOTS TO LEE
Poor Lee…he gets roughed up quite a bit at the beginning of this episode. And by a nun!
Umph! Lee gets thrown against the wall – twice! That’s one strong nun!
Three punches to the gut…poor Lee…that’s gotta hurt.
He can even see this next punch to his face coming – it came so fast he forgot to duck!
And finally, a second punch to the face before Lee turns the tables and takes the nun, I mean Rostov, out. Love how Rostov’s head cover neatly got back on his head after he punched Lee in the face the first time. And look at these three just watching! Do you think they realize the nun isn’t a nun? I hope so!
He is shot at 4 times while covering Amanda so she can run to the phone and call Mr. Melrose – you know, the one with tweed sofas in his office. Look, kgmohror, it’s Moustache Man from License to Steele! All you RS fans, check it out!
And one last punch for good measure. See? Torturing the “real” Scarecrow is pointless!
We are treated to two Amandarambles this episode! I guess they’re treats depending upon how you look at them.
A: I haven’t said everything that I want to say. Would you, would you listen to me for a minute? I now that you’re your own man and that you like to handle things your own way by yourself. And I really respect that. You’re in a lot of trouble here and I think it’s time that you admit that you need somebody else. Good for you, Amanda! Lee does need help! Don’t let him tell you otherwise!
Then a little later while they’re trying to find the house where Amanda was held.
A: Listen, I’m sorry! I’m trying, alright? I’m doing the best that I can. I should be at home helping Jamie arrange his birthday party. He wants Pretzel the Clown there and Pretzel the Clown has chicken pox. Can you imagine a man
that old and he hasn’t had the chicken pox?
L: Amaaanda! Would you –
Oooh, I feel badly for both of them here. Lee is really pushing and Amanda is really trying, but they are both stressed and irritated and it shows!!!
Oh goody!!! The part we’ve all been waiting for!! And it only took about 24 minutes to get to it. Love all the emotion KJ and BB put into their voices, faces and body language here. Well done you two!
A: They were gonna kill me. They thought I was you.
A: I told them that I wasn’t but they wouldn’t listen to me.
A: They stuffed me in a crate.
L: I know, I know. A: I don’t know how anyone could mistake me for you.
A: You’re so much taller.
L: Hey…I’m sorry.
L: Take it easy.
L: Take it easy.
L: It’s all over. A: I was…I was scared.
L: I know. So was I.
L: It’s all over.
Well, I can’t ruin the beauty of that scene, even with touch commentary. So let’s just say there was a lot of touching going on. You can see the total number I assign at the very bottom if you’re interested. **Sigh** I could watch that scene over and over again.
We’ve got a hand hold as Lee tries to get out of that house with Amanda. I love the baddie in the background! Zinoviev the Cool Baddie!
L: It’s okay.
And another arm grab as Lee tries to comfort Amanda.
We’ve got a shoulder touch here.
And because Amanda doesn’t have any change on her to call Billly, we get one last touch! ROFL!!!
Lee in plaid
This was a tough episode for Lee…not a whole lot of happiness going on. He was wearing this plaid shirt for most of it though so I’ve snagged a few screen caps for ya. I wasn’t sure which ONE to choose, so I’ve got a diverse selection for you to see. Feel free to let me know which one you like best!
Sad Lee – I guess he’s feeling like they’re never going to find that house and he’ll be tried for treason. I think this is the saddest I’ve ever seen him look in S1.
Gosh, he even gives the baddie a handsome look. I guess he just can’t help it!
Now he’s looking back at Amanda. I think he’s almost enjoying watching her be “the Scarecrow”. Is that a lazy eye I see?
L: The place is surrounded???
Guess that’s NOT something the real Scarecrow would have said
L: C’mon, you don’t really think that the Scarecrow would allow herself to be taken alive, do ya?
Ahhhh, this is perhaps my favorite plaid look of the episode.
Z: I tip my hat to you, Scarecrow. Until we meet again. You should learn from her, my boy. She’s the best! L: Yeah.
Lee’s masseter gets a bit of a workout this episode…I managed to catch a couple of them.
B: Lee, we’re not supposed to take this personally. It’s our objectivity which makes us effective. L: Amanda is dying in my place. That’s as personal as it gets!
Lee gets caught trying to be a tough guy and take on all the baddies at the warehouse while Amanda calls Billy.
Bloopers and miscellaneous
It’s kind of hard to tell, but Zinoviev pulls out the 4th book on the shelf which happens to be green, to activate the secret spinning entry thingy.
But here Amanda pulls out the 5th book which is blue! Actually the color order of the books in both photos isn’t the same either. Whoops!
We also have a Lee hair blooper this episode too…
Did you notice how messed up Lee’s hair is in this picture above? He had just run his hands through it in frustration. But look…
In the very next part of this scene his hair is gorgeous again! Voila! Lee has magic hair! Or hair that behaves very well….
And for those of you who are inclined to think Lee has some great looking hands…well, these are for you!
Oooooh! So Lee lives in SE DC! Between Capitol Hill and the Navy Yard near the Southeast Freeway it looks like. The metal point of the compass has to be his apartment, right? So if the Agency is in Georgetown (NW quadrant of DC) and Amanda lives across the Potomac in Arlington, VA…Lee does a lot of driving!!!
And yes, Jenbo, these really are Lee’s hands!
Well, that wraps it up for now! I hope you’ve enjoyed the stats for this more serious and dramatic episode. Less dimples and such but that swoony reunion scene more than makes up for it!
I just realized The Long Christmas Eve is next! What a coincidence!! I’ll have to get it done for the upcoming holiday!
