On to Transoceanic and it’s Operation Amanda Flirt..
Amanda pulls up to the security gate and tries to talk the security guard into telling her whose car it is.. so she can look him up and find her one true love! Just like in the Movie ‘Camille’ – anyone seen it? Bet it’s a Warner Bros film!
So funny watching Amanda try and flirt with Lee listening in!!
I won’t transcribe it.. criminal I know! but.. I’m time poor! If someone else wants to- feel free! Although LOL I am assuming BJo would transcribe this ramble in her stats post when she gets there! 🙂
Amanda does her lines.. and gets the info. hooray for Amanda!! The car is signed in under the president O’Keefe’s name.. and uh oh.. Tarzan comes along right at that moment and says Amanda must come with him.
[Oh well that’s not Amanda’s fault! Is it just me or did anyone else wonder why Amanda didn’t just floor it in reverse and get out of there?! Oh well if she had.. we wouldn’t have the next scene huh!]
uh oh.. Lee what are you going to do?!!
[love the collar up on your vinyl jacket Lee!!! Yes.. I sorry I still think it’s vinyl!]
Sooo funny- Love Amanda’s delivery of her final line to the security guard.
Security guard: good luck ma’am, maybe it will be just like in that movie!
Amanda: Ohhhh I hope not!…
… she dies!
(Love how she says this while smiling through her teeth!)
Lee follows Amanda in, clinging to the side of a truck.. is it just me or does he look really funny squatting on the side of the truck like that?!! Definitely calls for a meme!!! some wise crack about the vette!!! 😉 anyone?? feel free to use my pic!
Amanda is shown into O’Keefe’s office.
Uh oh.. check out all that silver and ivory- this is one mean refined baddie!!! [what, no baddie phone?!] Love the boat- keeping the fishing theme going!
Amanda is flying by the seat of her pants.. And being awfully polite Go Amanda!!
Amanda: what a lovely office!
O’Keefe: who the hell are you?
Amanda: Oh.. ahh..
…Mr O’Keefe? I’m looking for a job and you see I didn’t want to go through personnel sheesh!..
…I know I probably shouldn’t but I thought I’d just bring my resume (uh oh.. where is it Amanda?!) myself to you and deliver it to you.. …except I left the car without my purse and …I didn’t have it with me and I –
At this, Lee bursts into the office.
Hmm would have been interesting to see how O’Keefe responded to Amanda’s ramble! He could have offered her a job!
Lee to Amanda: you tell him yet?!!
Amanda doesn’t miss a beat: no.
Lee: ohhh.. [cool I guess this is Lee’s way of checking with Amanda- have you told him anything??!!]
Lee turns to O’Keefe : We’re friends of Jack Richards…
(oh? his first name was Jack was it?!)
Amanda jumps in here very quickly: Ah yes we’re partners.
.. you know him as Kurt Magnusson.
O’Keefe sends his secretary away..
As she leaves, Lee and Amanda share some serious eye talk here!
Once the secretary has left, Amanda quickly moves to stand part way behind Lee – awh!!! I’m sure Lee kinda likes that what do you think?
Lee continues: … and err we know
Amanda: that’s right! [she’s too funny here! Isn’t it great to see the two of them play off each other ad-lib like that?? Interesting – in front of a baddie they are partners.. in front of others.. she runs Lee’s errands.. ]
Lee: We’re willing to forget for 100 grand.
[Is it just me or, if I ignore the awful jacket- does Lee look extremely gorgeous, tanned and well.. swoony here???!!!!]
Amanda quietly adds: 100 grand.
[It’s very cute how Amanda just keeps repeating what Lee says…I’ve missed moments like these.. remember?: ‘me and the chick here want some privacy!’ ‘yeah!’ ROFL!! I haven’t seen one of these exchanges for a while now! What was the episode? just check out BJo’s avatar!! ]
Lee: … unless you’re willing for everyone to know that you blew up Hamilton Rawlings.
Amanda: Mmm MMmm! (as in yeah!)
O’Keefe stands up: Get out of here.
Lee pulls out a notepad : In a minute…
(whooo so take charge and confident! )
(We cut to a close up of Lee writing a phone number in his note book.)
[Whoooo is this Lee’s home phone number? nah.. he probably would give an agency one I guess.. are these Lee’s hands??!!! hand experts? 555-2715 who’s gonna give Lee a call??!!!! ]
(Lee hands him the slip of paper with his number on it)
…phone by midnight tonight. Otherwise we’ll feed you to a lot of hungry reporters.
[whoooo I like it!!! a bit of a fishing pun no?!]
O’Keefe is silent in response.. just scowling at them as a security guard comes to lead Lee and Amanda away..
Amanda nods at O’Keefe once again repeating Lee’s instructions: Midnight.
Amanda nods a lot in agreement.. so funny her delivery here.. I love funny Amanda! I don’t know how BB doesn’t crack up laughing!
Amanda’s so serious haaaa.. and then she turns and says so politely: Goodbye!
Lee chuckles at the security guard and tells him they were just leaving – ie. you don’t need to physically make sure I get out of here
Amanda gives one last look at O’Keefe: Thank you Sir.
And with that.. they leave O’Keefe’s office.. and O’Keefe looking very serious..
Tarzan re-joins him excitedly confirming Lee is the guy he sprayed with the extinguisher.
Muahahahaa O’Keefe wonders how to ‘get them out of our way’ – I don’t think he’s gonna pay
And the scene finishes there..
On to Lee’s apartment..whooo we see a moving exterior of his apartment block- I wonder which apartment he lives in today?
Drat.. no car with the hatchback up!
[but it looks like fall/autumn again?!]
We hear Amanda all excited: Ohhh!!! I think we’ve gone em! I think we really do!!! We really got him on the hook, boy!!! [rofl.. another fishing pun, fabulous! I don’t think I noticed that one before!! It must have previously gotten through the net.. get it?? see what I just did? lame I know 😉 ]
We cut to Lee and Amanda exiting the elevator
Lee is more cautious in his excitement:
I don’t know. Do we?
Amanda smiles: Oh yeah!!!!
Lee: ‘cause I was bluffing like crazy.
LOL.. Lee seems to be looking to Amanda here for encouragement! Or is it just me who thinks this?
Amanda: Oh yeah!!! but you were good…
…You were really really good…
…How did you learn how to do that?
[wow.. so gushing.. it’s been a while since we heard this- It feels different to me here than previous gushing compliments from Amanda.. what do you think?
Here the vibe is- I want to do that!! I want to learn from you to be a better pro!!! Whereas previous gushing – gosh anyone remember the last time??- has felt like more- wow you are really amazing!!! and a bit hero worship like- here her praise is more curious.]
[What do you think of Lee’s reaction?? He doesn’t get bashful.. maybe he is more comfortable now the gushing is no longer hero worship?? He seems preoccupied with whether the case is going well, he’s not happy about it, though I think he is encouraged by Amanda all the same.]
Lee responds to Amanda’s question: Ohh I don’t know….
…It sort of comes out naturally.
Lee breaks into a big smile here..
[I find this comment of Lee’s very very curious – He said he was bluffing, and it comes out naturally – is this applicable to other area’s of Lee’s life too?? I think it might be. I’ve never noticed this line before! Lee bluffs his way through a lot of things.. and interesting that he confesses this to Amanda no?? Previously Lee would have said thanks – it’s a skill or it’s training.. he’s a professional.. it’s what he does! – IMHO he certainly never would have admitted he just bluffs!!! what do you all make of this?? I’ve never really thought about this line of his before – I’ve always been so focused on Amanda’s gushing.. and the upcoming introduction of you know who!!! I think it overshadows everything- sadly – and so we miss little gems like this!!! ]
Okay moving on.. sorry!
Amanda continues with her unabated praise – any earlier distance between them seems to have been forgotten.
Amanda: Oh it was good!…
…it was really good.
Lee points at Amanda: you were pretty good yourself.
[wha???!!!! Did I just hear that correctly?? wow!!! Lee did just give a bit didn’t he!!! He is certainly changing!!!! ]
Amanda: Oh well.. I wasn’t as good as-
they talk over each other here a little..
Lee holds his hand up: no Amanda-
Amanda: -as you
Lee: take it from me-
Amanda: noooo you were better!!!
[Oh my goodness.. I can’t believe my ears!!!! When I think back to Brunettes are In?? and the fight in the hallway?? Amanda trying to assert that she knew some things and Lee knew different things?? wow!!!! Look how far these two have come!! There is no doubt Amanda is nowhere near the experienced agent Lee is – but he is no longer unable to see what she contributes – Hoooooo flippin Rayyy!!! ]
Lee and Amanda are so absorbed in each other as they walk down the hall and arrive at Lee’s front door, they don’t even notice the door is open!!! whahahaa!!!
Lee: hey from my experience –
Lee: you were take it from my experience-
Amanda: Okay I was pretty good…
…Ohhhhhh!!!! [Love the noise Amanda makes here – when she realises Lee’s apartment door is open.. not unlocked – but actually open. btw- I note Lee lives in Apartment 303 now.. so is that the third floor??!!! HERE is a DOA delirious on arrival post where I’ve discussed Lee’s apartment previously.. the external shots, the apartment number etc. There is so much that I haven’t covered – it could be really fun for someone to put it all together into one post – if anyone is interested?? but.. anyway. here Lee is Apartment 303 and in DOA it was 305 – I think! Always open to being corrected!!! but I note Lee has gotten rid of the plant that was standing next to his front door entrance in DOA! The hallway has been painted a totally different colour and the hallway light fittings have been changed so it doesn’t look like people have devil horns! Heck, maybe Lee has moved floors again! got to keep the baddies on their toes!]
Back to the episode.. sorry! I digress!!!
Lee and Amanda are on high alert!!! Lee’s apartment door is ajar!!!
Lee holds his hand up to Amanda to be quiet.. they listen but don’t hear anything..
Then, Lee pulls out his gun.. and slowly, quietly enters his apartment – my my.. the entrance inside the apartment has turned into a jungle!
Lee enters the silent apartment…
He doesn’t hear anything, but sees a table with candles on it..
and.. with that I shall pause here for now. Yep I’m going to stop here before the big introduction.. this post is long enough already and I think it is good to stop here and discuss Lee and Amanda’s conversation in the hallway – Sooooo I encourage you all to hang in there!!!! I can’t wait to hear what you all make of it!!!!
Where do you see Lee and Amanda here now?? What do you make of their interaction in the hallway?
I find they are so comfortable and happy in each other’s company it’s sweet.. and I love that they are so wrapped up in each other- they don’t even notice Lee’s door!!!
Anyone else find Amanda in O’Keefe’s office hilarious??!!!! and Lee particularly swoony and in command??!! hoo haaa..
Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!!!
Okay well byee for now.
