Crawford meets Gregory at the chemical plant.. and tries to return the 50 thousand he was paid to get the Ike Letter (the president, not the cat 😉 )
Gregory: I have no intention of accepting my money back and you’ll have no way of spending it when you’re dead either. I want that letter!
Whooo this dialogue is so cutting edge evil!! shivers!!!! tee heee.. okay okay.. it’s hilarious! I know at times the baddies are a big yawn.. but sometimes the dialogue is so bad it’s good!!!! [anyone agree?]
Once again, quite a bit of this dialogue was shot from a distance..
Crawford says he can’t get the letter it was hidden in his office and now he can’t get it.. Uh oh.. this can’t be good..
Gregory: Pity. You can’t get hold of the fabled letter and I can’t ruin the agency and worst of all I can’t tell which one of you have been deceiving me.
Crawford: well I’m not. If I was playing that game, do you think I’d be here telling you I can’t get the letter?!
Gregory: Odd you should mention the game. [I agree!! there it is again – this game!! what’s the significance?] .. it’s taken some rather curious turns lately. Melrose assures me that Harry Thornton is retired but I can’t risk it.
[what does Billy saying Harry is retired prove?! he can be retired and a double agent.. or not retired and a double agent.. or triple! Don’t they want Harry to not be retired? so he can pass them info? or is old info just as good? anyone?]
Crawford: Melrose doesn’t know. He’s never seen the letter.
Gregory: neither have I.
Gregory changes the ‘game’.. if Crawford can kill Harry and blame it on the Americans, then Gregory is happy to call it even..
Gregory: he’ll be here at 2.
sheesh! Crawford is going to have to truly sell out and turn to violence – where previously it was hinted he didn’t tend to resort to violence (IMHO).
The scene ends with a malevolent smile from Gregory
and an intense close in on Crawford’s clenching jaw! Let the games begin!
[I’m wondering why Crawford looks beaten up though.. when he fell of his bike, he had a helmet on!]
Lee and Amanda head back to the agency..hmm we see Lee and Amanda pull up in his vette- but Amanda drove her own car to Harry’s!
Hmm maybe they dropped Amanda’s car on that street she parks on now, and she hitched a ride to where Lee parks under IFF or something.. me confused.. Bring scotty back!!
Lee and Amanda head down the hallway towards the Q bureau.
Lee: After we were surprised in Korea, Ike was disgusted at our entire intelligence community. Harry was a top flight lawyer and Ike admired his tee shot. So he asked him to do a study… along the way he created the agency.
[oh wait.. okay what Korea mentions have we heard before.. anyone? anyone know what this is referring to? did the Colonel fight in Korea?]
Can I just say – nice to see Lee telling Amanda about how the agency was created! A little hint of how Lee and Amanda are sharing stories much more these days and not just on a need to know basis and Lee looks to be enjoying himself 😉
– crash! we hear a noise in the Q bureau.. Lee and Amanda are startled..
Love how Lee turns to look at Amanda before he makes a move!
Lee moves to approach the Q bureau door with caution..
yep.. gun out!
Lee kicks the door open and aims his gun at the intruder: Alright hold it!
lol.. he surprises the cleaner (man, does that cleaner have a death wish or what?!)
Cleaner: Step back, if it ain’t the new chief! I think that is so very with it when you enter gun first!
Lee: I’m sorry Ragmop (he really calls him that with a straight face? man.. now I know why the cleaner had a death wish!)
Lee: I guess you didn’t hear of yesterday’s intrusion huh. Big news! …Amanda!!!
Lee calls to Amanda that she can come in. She appears at the door.
Amanda: hello ragmop
Ragmop: Helllloooooo Mrs King! Hear about the intrusion?
[hear about it? she was in it!]
Amanda, with her gift for understatement: Yes I did.
Ragmop: that crazy Marsden broad downstairs put 32 slugs in the wall! haaaa!
[Broad? don’t like him! hmm!]
Lee asks Ragmop if he moved Harry’s personal files from ‘here’ when he retired – is ‘here’ the Q bureau? or the agency? sounds like the former-was the Q bureau Harry’s office once? It was harry’s and then Larry’s? Aie!! 😉 … I don’t know!
Ragmop certainly did move the files!!! I wish he’d remove himself from there while he’s at it.. Ragmop says they took the papers to the state department, and that he only told Crawford the same thing last month.. whatev- we already know Crawford knew.. who cares.. spare me Ragmop!!!!
Love how Amanda puts her hand on Lee’s arm at hearing Crawford had asked after the files!
Lee and Amanda rush Ragmop out the door.. and Ragmop is a bit put out.
Whatev.. go go!!! and don’t come back!!!!
One good thing about Ragmop? Looks like he was Lee’s inspiration here in Saved by the bells! as Lee went undercover as a Cleaner!
Sorry if you like him, but I find Ragmop tedious!!! looks like this character may have been planned to be ongoing.. otherwise why give us his ‘name’ .. sooo many times! guess he didn’t rate well and he was canned.. good decision..
I must say I love Lee and Amanda’s reaction when he’s moved on – aie.. what a pain in the butt!!! They don’t even need to say a word.. Lee just kinda groans and Amanda shakes her head! tee hee… great to see them in sync again.
Okay! best I finish here.. and I’ll be back with the final post on this episode soon! Anyone liking Ragmop?! do tell..and lol please share why.. cos I’m not seeing it haaaa!!
