Back to IFF the next day and Lee’s corvette is out front.
Billy off camera: What did happen last night with Jordan?
Wha?? the script says ‘what did happen that night with Jordan’.. but I’m hearing ‘last night’ which is of course a boo boo of Mel Stewart’s I think..
Also, today has to be Tuesday- the day Nabuti arrives.
Amanda answers: Ah, we just had dinner and and talked.
Billy: About what? [Is it just me or does Lee seem to not like this question?]
Amanda: I don’t know, really. Not about anything in particular.
Billy: Nabuti is scheduled to arrive at the mansion in less than an hour. Now we know that a paid group of assassins are going to try and kill him but.. we still have no idea when, or where.
[You can narrow down the where at least.. it’s wherever Nabuti is! haa]
Lee: Well at least we have the new security system installed around the mansion.
Amanda to Lee: New system???
Francine: Yeah somebody obviously murdered Jordan to get access to the security system soooo ah we thought they might have stolen it so we installed (Amanda shakes her head) the new system with Tucker.
Amanda: But they couldn’t possibly have stolen it because he had it all in his memory (Amanda points to her head with both pointing fingers).
ROFL!!! So funny how every time Jordan keeping the codes in his head is mentioned- we need someone to point for us where the head is!
Lee: What?!! Did Jordan tell you if anyone else knew about that access code?
Amanda: No! In fact, that’s the reason he memorised them, so no one else would know what they were.
Lee: And Tucker knew that! He set us up!
[If this is why Byron was so successful, it means people would have had to know this is how Byron did his work.. Soooo you’d think the agency would have already known this is how Byron operates.. LOL!! Me confused!] …He would have had to change the access code to get in to the Nabuti mansion…
…Since he didn’t know Jordan’s code, he put in his own security system.
Billy: And we gave him time to do it. [Suckers!!]
Yippeee… finally they put the pieces together.. should have just asked Amanda about it in the first place. but then that would be too easy! I can hear your cries now- of course iwsod! or there wouldn’t have been an episode!!! I know I know!!! tee hee..
Whooo by the way- it’s Star Trek day at work again!!! Glad you left the agency Amanda? Then again.. Amanda’s ear buttons are back! gah!!! Still I don’t think they can compete with Francine’s Star Trek uniform with her matchy matchy ear buttons and bracelet! So many fashion felonies I’m getting distracted.. focus iwsod!!
Amanda: Sir, there’s an emergency operating system that can bypass some of the sensors.
[Oh looky.. here is super clever Amanda offering a solution.. and just like when she use to work at the agency: she’s wearing a GUEST PASS!!! tee hee.. won’t you all be happy when I can stop moaning about that?!]
Lee: Where is it?
Amanda: It’s. Ah..it’s sort of hard to explain but I could show you.
Lee motions to Amanda to come with him: Alright come on come on. And stay close to me. Very close.
[Wha?? Oh my word!!!! Gotta rewind that line of dialogue..yep he said it- Veeerrrry close to me. Okay! No problem!! Music to my ears!!!!! I’d be even closer if you carried me! ]
Amanda: Yes I will. [Lucky girl!!!]
They all exit the office together and the scene ends.
This scene in the office –anyone else thinking Lee suddenly has the guyliner on again? I think Lee has fallen off the guyliner wagon!!! Nooooo!!!! Lee Leee!!!! Repeat after me Lee: ‘No thank you makeup person- I am no longer wearing guyliner!’ Ahem.. okay.. just had to let that out.. On the plus side – Amanda has on the awful ear buttons and the hair don’t – but IMHO she looks absolutely lovely in this scene anyway! Guess it’s that side part hey BJo?
Maybe kudos to the make up person for Amanda’s make up.. I guess! lol.. maybe BB used up most of the eyeliner so KJ had to go light that day haaaaa..
We see a shot of Lee driving the gang along a busy DC street.. Naughty Lee!!! He drives down the middle of two lanes and doesn’t use his indicator to change lanes- what a role model you are Lee Stetson! Not!!
On to the special diplomatic mansion where Nabuti is staying for an emergency summit meeting..
Only.. that doesn’t look like an emergency summit meeting.. it looks like a social reception! Having a party before your ‘emergency’ summit meeting Nabuti?
How did Augie even get in to the party??? Errr I thought the security was suppose to be tight?!! whahahahaaa!!
[I guess they made an except for the sake of some comic relief! ]
Augie to Nabuti: No no no you don’t understand. See this far surpasses mere capital gains. I- I’m talking about.. gross national product here. It’s a major growth industry, you ah you could say that it had legs. It’s.. it’s a sure bet your highness!
[Your Highness? whahahaa!]
Nabuti: President Nabuti. What is this magic economic elixir you are talking about?
Augie: Have you ever seen… women box?
Nabuti looks horrified: Box?
Augie: Yeah. You know, fight. With gloves on. I mean really hit each other. Whoo hooo it draws a crowd! It’s perfect for your country. It’s primitive!
[oh my.. that is outrageous!!! Pretty offensive stuff!! Nabuti is very tolerant here.. I think Augie needs a kick up the pants for that remark- ignoramus! Do you think that ‘joke’ would pass for acceptable on a show today?]
Nabuti: No I don’t think that you quite understand.
Augie: Nope, nothing like a national pastime to unite your people…
(Augie pulls some papers out of his pocket)
…see I have these brochures right…
[Brochures on women boxing? oh my!! Can you imagine what Augie would do if he saw Mancine in action?!!!]
…You can do a franchise in every city…
[I think Nabuti has lost his patience with Augie, now finding him only mildly amusing.]
…the economic potential is unlimited!
Time for the baddies to make their move on this mansion! They should have just hired Augie to bore Nabuti to death… but.. I guess this way is more exciting Colby the baddie jumps a fence, followed by Isley, Walters and Tucker. They congregate, then Tucker motions to Isley and Colby to move closer.
Love how Isley and Colby approach the house.. huddled over in the middle of the lawn like that – yeah.. that doesn’t look suspicious at all!! 😉 They totally blend!
Yeah.… that guard there? He wouldn’t spot that.. no need to maybe go around the outside, just cut across the middle of the lawn! whahahaahaaaa!
LOL we are reminded that the fab four are on their way with a shot of the Corvette driving along city street. Hurry! [I think we’ve seen this shot of Lee driving past the capitol a few times now!]
Wait a minute.. So ummm.. there is like all this security at the mansion right? That ahh you know..like.. work for the agency right?? I mean the men on the ground, they wouldn’t be from Jordan securities right? Otherwise, why do the baddies need to sneak in? and kill one of them? Tucker would have just told them to go or something..
Anyway- if the agency had guards there- why didn’t Lee or someone/ anyone??? gee maybe the boss- Billy- phone ahead and tell the guys guarding Nabuti to get him out of there??? Or at least lock him in the strobe lit bedroom? [and put on some BeeGees]
It looks to me like they all just got in Lee’s car (keeping Amanda-very close 😉 ) and notified no one.. Hilarious!!
Oh wait! Here is another way to give Amanda a raise! All those other agents at the agency? we don’t really need them! Lee, Amanda, Francine and Billy can pretty much deal with anything without the rest of the agency! whwhahaahaa.. tee hee.. oopsie sorry I’m getting subtracted distracted..
Back at the mansion, Tucker and Walters are ready and waiting to make their move. They can see Isley and Colby taking out the guard in the garden.
Tucker to Walters: Now, once we get inside I’ll reset the security sensors to my own code. That way the agency people won’t be able to get in without setting off the alarms. [eh?! I thought he did that yesterday! I guess he reset everything then gave the codes to the agency? so he and agency had them? So now he will change them on the agency? LOL it doesn’t really make sense. what if the agency had changed the codes on him?! Okay *iwsod gives a handwave!*]
Walters: Yeah good! I like it workin for us!
Tucker and Walters laugh at how clever they are.
Tucker: Yeah come on.
They begin to move closer to the mansion.
Lee’s Corvette is still on it’s way.. Faster!! faster!!! come on!!!!!!!
At the mansion, Isley uses a rope to climb the mansion wall, while a guard aims to shoot him, Colby takes out the guard in time. Tucker and Walters sneak in carrying machine guns and enter the main reception room yelling to get down..lots of chaos.. rah rah..
Tucker waves his gun around. All the guests have their hands in the air. Except Nabuti who stands still.
Tucker yells: Quiet! (then to Nabuti) We send you greetings from your great country.
Nabuti: There will be no negotiations. You will just have to kill me.
Tucker: We may get around to that. First, we’re gonna make you a TV star.
Okay I’m going to finish up here for the moment.. with the fab four about to arrive at the mansion and save the day! Any thoughts you’d like to share? Byeee for now!
