Next, we see Crawford shows up at Thornton’s on a noisy dirt bike, right when Harry was looking out his window.. what luck.. ahem.. Thornton sees him..
Harry heads to his desk, and gives his cat a little shove: Ike! move your kitty buns! I’ve gotta get in here!…
lol! kitty buns?! Love how the cat meows like it’s talking back.. [the script has Harry say move your fat cat buns- I prefer kitty buns! tee hee]
… let’s see what our friend down here has in mind.
He gets his binoculars and heads back to the window.. lol.. the motorbike is parked out front, why does he need binoculars, he’s not 50 storey’s up! and all he sees is Crawford walking away from his bike. ohhhh whatever! Does Harry know who Crawford is?
Flower pot on the balcony!!
Time for Ike and Harry to hit the road!
(Don’t forget the kitty treats!)
Harry leaves out the front door? oohhh kaayy.. I’ll go with it.. Too cute how Harry gives Ike a kiss as they head down the stairs!
Crawford sees him leave.. (maybe Harry wanted him to see him leave, so that’s why he left out the front).
J.K Rowling’s inspiration for the wonder boy Harry Potter has been uncovered!!!! Poor Lee!
Lee: I’m afraid that’s a fifty-five-E, section- seven, a double fault citation.
Camera pans to find Amanda looking like the kindest person in the entire world. She’s grieved.
Amanda: Ohhhh a double…Sir you really don’t want to give a double to Mr ahh??
[In the script Amanda calls Lee ‘Mr Thymus’! rofl!!! ]
The Guard we saw before is being questioned by Lee and Amanda, and appears none too happy.
Guard: Essex, ma’am. What is a double?
Lee: Eighteen hundred dollars.
Guard: No way!
Amanda: Well I’m afraid the fire laws are very clear, although…perhaps..…
..misapplied in this case. Mr Essex…may I call you Bob?
[Hey! If I didn’t know better I’d say Lee and Amanda are doing a bit of good cop bad cop here! ]
Lester: It’s Lester, ma’am. And I don’t intend on taking the blame. You got a beef? Go see George Schultz.
Lee: You were the security personnel on duty, correct? (Bob err Lester nods) You called in the alarm.
Amanda: well, in the case of an accidental fire we have to make a judgement about…. Negligence… You understand.
[I do believe Amanda is having fun here! ]
Lester: This is the flippin’ State Department!!
(Getting worked up Bob err Lester spits a bit in his blurted response!)
Amanda looks at Lee Potter, boy wizard: Oh dear.
Lester: sorry, ma’am – I just work here. Did you say accident? What makes you think this was an accident?
Lee: Well our report says this is ‘cause unknown’.
Lester: That’s because the folks upstairs haven’t put out an official statement. Standard hold up.
Amanda whispers: ohhhhhh… a security blackout.
Lester: Just.. nothing official.. to nobody.
Lee: Okay. Strictly unofficial? How did the fire start if it wasn’t an accident?
Lester: Arson!!! The guy used a Magnesium incendiary. It burned straight down through three drawers before we caught it. Unofficially!
Lee: what’s in those drawers? If it’s chemicals we could have an aggravated 901 and 2!
Lester: paper.. files.. letters.. it’s all been in there for years!
[At one point, The script has Amanda add here: ‘Mr Thymus is merciless with people who lie to him.’ which I kinda like.. as at this moment, in a way, Amanda is lying to Lee by not telling him about Harry.. and it’s cool how this will all play out ]
Soo funny…. This was Amanda’s idea?? My goodness.. this is showing progress isn’t it! In Over the Limit Amanda had a go with her cover of being a love struck Camille fan.. but it was plain (at least to me) that she was not comfortable with it yet. Here? she’s completely on board.. and doing a fantastic job. More confirmation this order so far is good?! Amanda’s confidence is growing – maybe thanks to Harry asking her to take on this role?? thanks to the compliments Harry contributed to Lee about Amanda? (which you may or may not believe.. but still heck it’s great to hear! )
Amanda holds up a studio glamour shot ( rofl!) of Crawford: Mr Essex? Bob!
(notice-normal finger nails!!)
Lester: that’s him!! that’s the guy who set the fire.
I think Lester should have smelled a rat. One minute Lee and Amanda think Lester is to blame and it’s an accident. the next Amanda is showing him a photo of the guy who deliberately started the fire? rofl.. it doesn’t make sense.. but.. I think Bob errr Lester is probably too dim to notice
Lester volunteers: He was here posing as an NSC duty officer. That’s National Security Council.
Amanda: yes we know.
Lester won’t stop with the info now! : They found the real duty officer tied up to the radiator in his room!
Well.. Crawford didn’t kill him huh.. Crawford seems to prefer not to kill.. interesting. Poor guy.. hope he gets that trip to Hawaii after all
[so funny how he says this! Like that’s shocking! appalling! ] The scene ends here..
Good Job Lee and Amanda! they get all the info they need!
Lee drives Amanda to her car.
Love how Lee says: Thanks for your help Amanda. You were very good! [after OTL- this is awesome to hear!!]
Amanda: ah thanks a lot.
Amanda isn’t getting out of the car.. LOL..
Lee: ahh Amanda if you could go back and start filing those things I’d really appreciate it…. I’ve got some one I have to see.
Amanda: Oh well we’re doing so well why don’t we just stick together.
uh oh.. this is not normal Amanda!!! and Lee knows it!
Lee, now suspicious: nnnnnnnoooope
Lee: No, this is personal.
[grrr off to see Leslie Lee?!!!! ]
Amanda: Oh come on. Now you know how anxious you are to get Crawford!
Lee: I am no-… Amanda!…
.I don’t have to explain my every little move to you.
Amanda: noo of course not! And I’ll just wait in the car.
Lee quietly: no you won’t.
Amanda upbeat: yes I will.
Lee: No you won’t..
…you never wait in the car and you know that.
Love how he isn’t angry when he says that.. he is just… resigned!! tee heee… Rather than angry.. Lee is becoming curious!!!!
Lee continues watching Amanda very very closely here: …besides.. you’ve been sneakin around, stickin to me like glue lately. Is there something you want to tell me? [of course she’s sneaking! She’s lying and sneaking and working for the government! ]
Amanda shrugs.. she can’t look Lee in the eye!: No..
[I think he is not buying it at all! you?]
…I’ll see you later.. and errr…
…don’t follow me…
… I mean it.
Amanda shrugs again.. tries to look baffled: I’m not going to follow you! Cha! (she takes off her seat belt and tries to act/sound indignant haaa)
…I don’t even know haa why you would say that..
Lee is soooo not buying it! and he is completely unmoved tee hee..
These two are so cute when they are trying to trick each other
Love love love the sideways glance Lee gives as Amanda leaves and she says this last line..
Lee just grunts in response.. Hmm!!
whooo sorry BJo, can’t miss that cheeky muscle going on there as he closes his eyes a moment..
(is that a sign Lee is sounding casual but deep down he is concerned?)
Lee starts the engine and drives off.. haaaaa (you can hear Lee’s seatbelt alarm going off – put your seatbelt on Lee! )
So what do you make of his sideburns here?? they have a bit of a curl! Umm.. do you think they styled them?rofl!!! now that is some extreme manscaping! but it does.. ahem.. kind make me want to touch it hoo haaa..
Love the smile Amanda gives Lee as she sees him off well.. pretending to –
-before she hurries into her car to follow him..She puts Lee’s stuff on the back seat… haaa Amanda left her car windows down that whole time?? yeah right.. and the front one is completely down? It’s a miracle her car is still there..
Okay! I better stop there!! Amanda is following Lee.. there’s some weird stuff going on in the smk universe here! A real role reversal!! Can’t wait to hear your thinking!! byeeeee
