Inside the elevator of the big bad high rise..
Amanda and Lee attempt to access the hidden floor. Whooo it’s the magical manicure set again.. twice in one episode?! Lee attempts to pick the lock. lol.. it’s umm not very high tech is it..
Amanda: You sure you can get it?
Lee: I don’t know. [Yeah! you’d think it would be hard, I mean.. it’s Cyclops!]
Amanda: Oh yeah, I’m sure you can. I mean c’mon, you were the only fraternity guy who could get into the back door of the Kappa House in ten seconds flat.
Lee: Did I tell you that?
Amanda: Yeah, you told me that. I was a Kappa.
Lee: You were a Kappa?
Amanda: Yeah, I told you that.
Lee: Yeah, you did.
Love how Lee raises his eyebrows!
– come on everyone! What do you think Lee is thinking here?!
A cute little moment – love how they insert these little sweet character moments between the action- this is top shelf smk! What smk does best! Very coupley conversation huh.. sounds like they’ve been talking about more than just shop talk 😉
My guess? Lee seems a bit bemused when he realises he told Amanda that – I think Lee is thinking- man.. I told you that?! I’ve told you a lot.. and.. you’re okay with that?!
Before it dawns on Lee that he told Amanda this stuff and his reaction to that– I think there is a hint of new admiration for Amanda when it dawns on him that she was a Kappa.. Lee likes Kappa’s.. and this new way of seeing Amanda that he is coming to embrace is helping to be open to enjoying these things about her – well that’s my guess at this point anyway… maybe you guys have a better way of seeing this that I prefer
Lee: I’ve never seen anything quite like this…
[Amanda? or the lock? tee hee.. well this cracks me up.. looks like a piddly normal lock to me.. but talk up your skills there Lee I’m sure it will impress Amanda! Amanda did seem mighty proud of Lee’s record at breaking into Kappa house!]
(the elevator starts moving and doing it’s special lights on the display)
Lee looks intrigued- ohh so that’s what happens…. Whereas Amanda’s reaction is – uh oh umm we are really doing this??!!! It’s moving!!!!
Lee pulls the key out..
Both Lee and Amanda stand up and silently watch the lights do their thing..
Lee: You sure you want to go through with this?
[getting to know you better Lee?? or.. Cyclops?? I know which one I’d rather do ]
Amanda looks nervous and a bit scared.
Amanda quietly: Yeah.
Lee silently looks at her.. not sure..
Amanda turns to look at Lee and more adamantly responds: Yeah!!!
Lee silently looks at Amanda..
They make quite a point of this here.. that Amanda is choosing to do battle with Cyclops and go into this dangerous situation.. can’t wait to hear what you all make of this!
Security Guard: Hold it right there!
Amanda: Ohhhhh!!!! Thank goodness, another human being. [debateable!]
…I have been stuck in that thing for what must have been hours going up and down, up and down,…UP AND DOWN!!!…
[Love the motioning Amanda does here.. completely distracting and overwhelms the security guard – guess it leads him to conclude Amanda is no threat – just a superfluous annoyance – just like Francine sees her ]
…. I got on at six just to zip up to seven to borrow a little coffee from purchasing,.. [I think she’s had enough coffee…] ..and that thing ran away with me… [whahaha]
…Up and down, up and down, up and down! What floor is this anyway?
[Amanda is genius!!]
Cranky Guard: What floor doesn’t make any difference. It’s private. How did you get up here?
[err she just told you how]
Incredulous Amanda: I pushed the button.
(This directs the guard over to the elevator to investigate) [Good one Amanda.. ]
Amanda Sighs. as the guard enters the elevator..
[knowing what’s coming! and relieved the guard has fallen for it?] Lee punches the guard in the face..
Lee: grunts or something. [hilarious transcribing BJo!]
Now that punch in the face looked real! Lee exits the elevator shaking off his hand he must have used to deliver the punch. Seeing he’s successfully knocked out the guard, Lee turns to Amanda.
Amanda gives another big sigh and holds out her hand for Lee to give her five..
Lee doesn’t hesitate – it’s like they wordlessly say to each other – Good job partner!!!
Then Amanda gives Lee five
What a team!! I like that this moment is all non verbal.. wondering how it plays out in the script- anyone??
Wordlessly they both bend down to deal with the unconscious guard.
On to the Cyclops meeting…
Zorbel: Admittedly, there have been a few inconveniences, but we now have them well under control.
Baddie 1 (Curtis St. Clair in script): Inconveniences? Sounds more like serious complications of the entire project.
Canaan: Aghaney’s suicide raised a few eyebrows, and Melrose appears to be working on his own… [soooo did Zorbel and Daisy neglect to mention Lee the agent was at Zorbel’s?? I mean Canaan knew about Lee the bank investigator.. and new he could potentially be a threat. Or is Canaan lying to Cyclops?? who knows.. This makes nooo sense to me]
…He’s an old stag stumbling out of retirement. Nothing to worry about.
[Interesting.. so he has no idea who Billy is huh..]
Baddie 2 (Derrick Blount in script): One billion dollars is a great deal to worry about, Charles. I’m worried. Our associates are worried. You and we can’t afford to stumble.
Canaan: We won’t. (Canaan nods to Zorbel for him to proceed): The plan.
I best call it a halt here.. soooo Lee and Amanda working together here is a joy to watch no?! They are enjoying being a team!!! and I am enjoying watching them enjoy it too!
Okay everyone.. byee for now!!! Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this ep so far – whatever you’d like to share!!!! byeeeeee
