Well! I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally get on the flippin boat! BTW- Transcription from now on is by HappyCamper- thank you!!
Lee and Amanda arrive at the agency boat.. Theeeee Mati Hari II???
[okay KC I have no idea if I would have noticed that before you said it boo hoo!]
Anyway.. I’ll call it the Mata Hari II…that’s what Billy called it! Whooo Lee in jeans Lee in jeans.. who cares how good a sailor he is..
Lee: Well, what do you think?
[Lee introduces Amanda to the boat! Lee enjoys introducing Amanda to things.. wouldn’t you say?]
[I love how Amanda just throws herself up onto the ship.. no heels..no skirt..she’s perfectly capable of getting on board with no help whatsoever!]
[Okay, listen to that exchange and ignore the boat.. Lee is asking Amanda what she thinks about his jeans right??]
Amanda: Well, you know, there’s only one way to handle this – can I have my life jacket?
Lee: Yeah. And what way is that?
Amanda: I’ll have to be the captain and you’ll have to be the crew.
Haaa Amanda has sensed her superior knowledge and wastes no time in taking the helm- this is rare for Amanda.. what’s going on here?
Love how Amanda immediately starts walking away not waiting for a response from stunned Lee here!
Amanda heads over to the wheel (okay is that the…. helm??!)
Lee, still on the dock, release’s the boat’s ropes, freeing it from the mooring. (any sailing errors from me? probably quite likely!)
Lee: Okay, Captain! Let’s shove off…
Well.. Lee I am impressed.. you’ve seen the smart play here!!
I love how Amanda immediately puts on a life jacket- so Amanda!!
I think what’s going on here is a result of the previous scene at IFF and Lee’s assumption that Amanda was unqualified to sail the Mata Hari II..
Do share your own thoughts.. but I see Amanda here as teasing Lee about it, and getting a little sweet revenge..it’s all in fun.. but this time it’s Amanda teaching Lee a lesson – don’t underestimate me Lee Stetson!! and don’t you forget it!
And I think Lee knows it! IMHO Lee knows she’s having a playful dig because of what he said in Billy’s office – and he knows that he kinda has to grin and bear it.. because he deserves a playful dig.. and he owes it to Amanda to let her have a bit of fun with him Lee knows his ego is safe with Amanda.. Amanda stands up for herself, but she doesn’t do it at the expense of Lee’s pride.. she just teases him when they don’t have an audience. She’s a smart woman!
…There’s a slip open right next to the Sea Chance. We’ll just sail right over and tie up.
Lee gets on the boat and joins Amanda at the helm. LOL he fiddles with a rope for a moment and then seems to think.. nah can’t be bothered.. haaa…
Lee can be heard to let out a big sigh – like he is relaxed and happy to be sailing – with Amanda!
Lee enjoys the view a moment..
And.. so do I! jeaaans…
He then walks behind Amanda to her right, his arm lingering on her back..
yep.. these two can’t help but touch each other – lingering just a little longer than they need to!
Amanda: Want to take her?
Lee: Thank you.
Aren’t they so upbeat and polite with each other here??
[Her point made, Amanda is generous with Lee here, maybe repaying a little his accepting her taking the lead ]
Off Mata Hari II sails, it leaves the dock and off it goes..
well.. did you all see it?? (I think Amanda did!) See what?
Amanda should have steered the boat until they were away from the dock – Lee hits the left back (port aft?) of the boat because he turns the boat too sharply!!!! lol..
Scccrrrraaaatttch!!! Ouchie! see it below?
Lee! It’s not a corvette!!! It doesn’t corner like it’s on rails!!! 😉 tee hee.. Nothing is made of it, and it’s probably a BB mistake, but it’s pretty funny given the context of Amanda being a better sailor! haaaa
Amanda: OK, I’m going to head into the wind. When the jib starts to luff, just drop it and then drop the mainsail.
Lee: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I – I know that, Amanda.
No no no Lee you don’t know! Payback isn’t over tee hee.. Amanda is in a teasing mood haaaa.. she has Lee shifting the sails as she steers -and she yells out a bunch of orders or instructions to him.. he is all – yeah I know Amanda! haa haaa -ugh!.. but still light-hearted.. haaaa.. this is much better coping from Lee than in utopia now.. he must have learned a thing or two!
Amanda: Don’t get your feet caught in the jib sheet.
(Amanda’s smirking IMHO because she’s having fun she knows it is grating to Lee!)
Lee: Aye!! Aye!!
(to himself): – Captain King.
Amanda: Here we go!…
[whoooo so exciting! Amanda is.. turning the boat! whahahaaa]
…Drop her! There you go!…
…We ought to do this more often.
Lee: (Slightly sarcastic) Oh, yeah.
You know Amanda is so confident here, I can’t help but think that her comment in Billy’s office about ‘helping’ to sail a 55 ft ketch was an understatement.. she was probably the captain! tee hee..
What did you make of Amanda telling Lee she’s in charge?? and Lee’s attitude? do tell!!!
anything interesting in the script for these scenes? I’m too busy to check..
So if anyone is in the mood- please share what you find in the script! thanks everyone and bye for now!
