Merry Christmas Eve everyone!!! Wasn’t that last post by iwsod on SMK Christmas trivia fun? I’m here to continue that fun with stats for TLCEve. Such a great episode with good insight into Amanda’s character (great for a Bite-Sized Amanda post!) and little Lee Stetson’s. I see this as an Amanda-focused episode with some hilarious and well-acted out humor scenes and very likeable baddies – wodka anyone?
I hope you enjoy – and please let me know if I’ve missed anything!
Oh, look! Both Jacks are back! Remember the agent whose name is actually Jack from SBTBells? He’s the one on ‘Jack’s’ right.
Love Amanda’s look here. Jack is telling her the joke about how many agents it takes to change a light bulb – don’t quit your day job, Jack…. Amanda laughs and says, “That’s good.” as Jack walks away – can’t tell if she’s sincere or not. I hope not….
I have a sneaking suspicion that the woman with the long blond hair who has her back to us is Jill. We never get to see her face, though, so I’m not sure. What do you think?
B: He hasn’t seen his daughter since she was 3. Mrs. King happens to be about the right age. And besides, he knows all of our other women agents. L: She will never pull it off! Oh Lee…yee of little faith. What’s it gonna take? The mob???
Touches, part 1
I’m going to cover only the touches that happen before Lee gets shot. The rest will come in post 2.
I’m not really sure, but it looks like their clothes at least are touching. I think Lee just likes to be close to Amanda. What do you think?
L: It’s three miles in. Should take us an hour, hour and a half if we keep up a good pace. A: Yes, sir! L: Let’s go! I love the humor in this scene! If you haven’t scene this episode lately, you need to get out your DVD’s or fire up your Prime and watch it!! Now!! You won’t regret it! Oh, the touch – yeah. Lee ‘hits’ Amanda on the arm as he says, “Let’s go!”. The screen cap is a very unflattering picture of Amanda, so I’m using this one instead.
Lee spots someone!! They need to hit the deck! This is a full on tackle – no two hand touch here! Hello, Sandy Newcombe!
A: Leeeee, isn’t this a little sudden? Shouldn’t we talk about this? I mean this could compromise our whole professional relationship. ROFLMBO!! Does Amanda really think that Lee is trying to make a move on her??? I find this hysterical! Anyone else? Oh, and I’m not sure how to count the touches here – there’s lots of parts touching, ahem, so I’ll maybe just count it as one touch? Oh, by the way, this full body touch lasted for about 22 seconds. Yep, timed it. Wonder how many takes it took to do this scene?
L: Amanda, will you shut up, please?
Muahahahaha!!!! Lee hasn’t heard a word she’s said!!! That’s a good thing for her sake! How do you think he would have reacted had he heard?
A. Huh? What are you talking about?
B. Wha? You’re not my type!
C. Who cares? (followed by a kiss. hehe )
D. He did hear, he’s just pretending he didn’t for her sake. (Awww, what a sweetie!)
What a gentleman – helping her up.
It looks like they’re holding hands here as they go to meet Janus/Rudolph. But I can’t tell for sure. There may be some daylight between them in the hand area. KC? You’ve got eagle eyes…what’s your expert opinion?
Amanda Doesn’t Do What Lee Tells Her/Amandaramble Part 1/Amaaanda!
This scene is too good to break up…so I’m just going to lump it all together.
Here we have your typical woman asks man if he’s lost question. Just how does SMK handle it? LOVE this humor here!
A: Are you sure you know where we’re going?
( Amanda reminds Lee to take in the seasonal adjustment – hahahaha! Who else but ordinary suburban cub-scout leading Amanda would know to do that!) L: We go that way.
A: Well the sun is due west only at the equinox and we’re three days past the winter solstice. I think I better just check the moss. L: The moss? (hahaha – I feel for ya Lee! If they’re three days past the winter solstice does that mean the original airing date was 12/24?)
A: Yeah the moss, you see, well look, you just, you just look at a a tree…you find a tree and the moss always grows on the north side so that is the north side – L: Amanda – A: of the tree because moss always grows…
L: Amaaanda! A: What? LOL – love it! Lee goes on to insult her “Mickey Mouse” spy courses which were once his Mickey Mouse spy courses and Amanda tells him it’s from the Cub Scouts – the Cub Scouts who always can find their way out of the woods. LOL.
A: North is that way! Muahahahaha! You go girl!
Who Left Their Keys This Week?
No one. Lee actually decides to take his keys with him. Thought this was noteworthy since this is the one time it would probably be okay to leave his keys in the car – they’re in the middle of the flippin’ woods! Are you worried that the bears are gonna steal your car, Lee?
LOL! Billy as Santa! Boy, does he look grumpy!
But lookey here! Now who do you think put a smile on that grumpy Santa’s face? Why Amanda, of course! Even Billy can’t resist her holiday cheer. Sure beats Lee and Francine’s reaction to her gifts. Must be why he’s the boss.
Hahaha! Love this pic – Billy’s got hat head!! Yup, even Billy can have a bad hair day! Doesn’t the white stuff on his sleeve look like the Grinch’s???
Just look at all the lovely Christmas decorations. No wonder they gave Leatherneck a budget!
Here’s a hands shot! And yes, they’re Lee’s – this shot widens to show these particular paws are attached to Lee.
Ahhh, Lee in the outdoors, with a gun, hands up where we can see them, telling the baddies what to do….
gratuitous Dimple shots
A: Now you see I got you something that you would never get for yourself. Look at that. See? socks. And they’re all the same so you don’t have to worry about matching them when they come out of the dryer. (I bet the laundry service who does Lee’s laundry will be thrilled! Is this THE sock in S4 that Dotty finds in Amanda’s laundry? TBD)
A: Now I know why you really brought me along. Yep! I’m thinking this is exactly what Lee is thinking!
Random thought here – anybody out there like Frango Mints? I love them.. I’m eating some of them right now.. Yum! One of my favourite Christmas treats!
L: It’s three miles in. Should take us an hour, hour and a half if we keep up a good pace. A: Yes, sir! Love Lee’s face here!
Lee in Plaid
And here we have Scarecrow in this lovely ensemble. Where’s the Fashion Police? We need to make an arrest here!
Although, I must admit it looks better when seen above Lee’s legs. Even if they are in pants. Cute tree, Billy! iwsod, has Billy’s couch always been blue so far in this season?
Lee is too wearing plaid in this picture! Check out the lining of his coat!
One of my favorites. Yep, you guessed it, it’s Lee with a gun and his hands… He might even be being a little ‘Cheeky’ but I can’t really tell.
Ahhh, a very nice profile of the Scarecrow. We don’t get to see that too often. Love that his hair is a little messed up! Oh, and we get his hands again
Well, this is the perfect place to end this post. TLCEve Stats Part 2 pretty much picks up where this one leaves off. I don’t normally try to do the stats following the way the episode goes, but it just worked out that way this time!
Thanks for reading! And here is the link to iwsod’s first TLCE episode post.
