Hi Everyone, I can’t believe we are knockin’ on the door of season 3, can you!?!? But before iwsod lets us open that door I get to share some swoony good stats from season 1’s ROTP! So get out your drool buckets and helmets and sit back and relax and enjoy the show. (Cue bluesy saxophone music.) Who doesn’t love this episode?!?! Besides Francine anyway!
Hope you enjoy!
HITS/PUNCHES/SHOTS TO LEE
Lee gets stabbed! With that bendy knife!!!
Ouch! That really hurts! Lee is in pain!
Then he gets punched – more ouch!
Oh nooooo!!! Say it ain’t so!!! Lee is dead!!! Don’t you just love how Amanda is the only one we can see not wearing a dark color?
It’s wet Lee! Can anyone see the egg on the top of his head? It’s there because Amanda dropped the phone on him! We just didn’t get to see it happen.
It’s really not a fair sword fight here – superspy Scarecrow versus that nutter Russell Sinclair. This boo boo here to Lee as he crashes his luscious backside into his desk is caused more by Lee than Sinclair, IMHO. Be careful Lee! Don’t want to damage the merchandise too much .
Even Amanda sees that it must have hurt! Bwahahahaha! Love that face!!!
Sinclair gets in one final piddly attempt at hurting Lee so he can escape – books to the face. Nooo! Not to his fabulous face! Aren’t you glad we almost never got to see Lee with cuts and bruises to his face? Except that one time when he really deserved it?
There she is! It’s our first full-fledged, without a doubt Jill sighting. We continue to see this woman throughout the series. Does anyone know what her name is in real life? We may have already covered this, but I’m too lazy right now to go back and check. In this episode she appears to be playing an innocent byscreamer, I mean bystander.
This is just a mini-ramble, but it’s such a sweet scene and picture I just had to include it Hope you don’t mind.
A: Alright. We know that you’re strong and brave and I’m not. I’m scared and I’m not strong and I’m not brave so, just to humor me, would you please let me drive you home? Pause Please? Pause L & A together: Okay. A: Good.
I love this next Amandaramble to Lee. I’m so glad she let him have it a little bit. He deserved it! But he looks so damn good looking here (and sincerely sorry) that I just can’t seem to really get mad at him. Not even for a second.
A: I have been really upset about this. I thought I’d lost a friend, and that hurts. And I was frightened, too, and uh. . . . Look, I know you don’t like tears, I know they frighten you more than bullets, so I’m sorry about this little scene, but you’ve brought it all on yourself because it would have been totally unnecessary if you hadn’t been killed, which you haven’t been,
and I cared that you were dead, and I don’t care if you don’t care that I care.
Ah-yup…I’m gonna make you wait for that stupendous dimple shot that we all know comes next
Amanda Boo Boos
Amanda doesn’t fare too badly this episode. Just a few bed bugs, a harmless little attempted strangulation, and more dynamite than even Wile E. Coyote would ever use.
Here we have Sinclair trying to strangle Amanda.
He fails at his attempt before Lee tries to save her, so he throws her against the wall – ouch!!
and then ties her up – each forearm and across the top of her chest. Quick question here…who thinks Lee’s albums are still organized alphabetically??? Anyone think he messed ‘em up? Or maybe just moved his Stones albums to the “R” section?
Look at all this dynamite! I wonder if he shopped at the Acme Corp? He must have – that would also explain his not using the ubiquitous SMK baddie white rope.
There’s even a bundle of dynamite behind Amanda! Is the whole building gonna explode or just Lee’s apartment and maybe the one above it? 9 bundles of dynamite!
Yowza! His masseter is really flexing here! He is not happy about having protection 24/7! Nice trench, Billy! Much better than the cardys.
Ooooh, check out this cheek shot! Amanda’s cheek…. Look’s like she’s been taking cheek muscle flexing lessons from Lee. She needs more practice, don’t you think? Get yer minds outta the gutter
Wait, how’d this get in here? Oh, alright, I give up…nice cheeks, Lee! Ahem. Looks like domestic bliss if you ask me!
TOUCHES – Part 1
ROTP is a very touchy episode…we are back up to 25! The only other S1 episode thus far that has nearly that many touches is TGTN.
Lee has Amanda’s right arm at the elbow with his left hand. What a gentleman!
Right hand at elbow here.
Left hand on Amanda’s back.
And finally his right hand on her back, guiding her away from the table. Oh, and I just noticed he’s getting a little cheeky here too! He doesn’t like those reporters!
Left hand on her arm again. Lee’s eyes are too funny here. What do you think he sees? Or maybe Amanda’s has just said something to him??? KC, iwsod, what can you guys do with this one?
A: Can I see it? L: Why? A: Well, just because I’m nosy. Amanda touches his hand while going for the note.
And one last arm touch. I love this quality of Lee’s. Is there anyone out there who would be driven nuts by all this touching? If so, then I think you are reading the wrong blog.
I’m not even sure how to count all the touching parts here, so I’ll just be quiet and let you enjoy…. Which hug do you like better – this one or the one in the golf cart in SBTB? I’m partial to this one. Please explain your choice in the comments – I’d love to hear them!
They both look VERY happy!
He’s really got his arms around here, doesn’t he? LOVE it! But why are her eyes closed and his not? Okay all you deep thinkers, just what does that mean??? I can’t really think when I see this picture, all I see is dimple, hands and happiness
I think their fingers may touch here – her right and his left.
See? It looks like it, right? Don’t you just love the idea of Lee in Amanda’s house being all domestic?
I really think Amanda thinks Lee doesn’t know how to use the dishwasher!
Touhes are to be continued in the next post in a couple of days!
Ok, that’s all for this first stats post. Please et me know what you think about their eyes while hugging and if you think Lee mussed up the order of his albums! Or anything else you’d like to share!!! Post 2 will be coming soon! Thanks for reading – and here is the link to iwsod’s first episode post for ROTP.
