Anyway, we do have baddies we have to watch.. remember them?
We find baddies Lanz and Heck down by the marina at a table..
Lanz: We just got a wire from Angola. Pretty Boy’s name is Stetson. He was down there on a temporary visa, attached to the embassy as an – agricultural advisor.
Whoa.. they’ve cracked it! They know who he is – an agricultural advisor!
(Whoo Lee is into gardening? !)
They say they have confirmation they are not just dealing with amateurs..
(Yep, Lee’s a professional gardener! He travels the world gardening )
The Ambassador arrives and stands behind them. LOL It’s like he is doing just like Lee would tell Amanda – stand behind and don’t look.. whahaaha
The Ambassador doesn’t want to be seen with these men… blah blah blah.. what no random props to make this scene more interesting?? come on.. yawn…
...Lanz: This is where we lost the trail. (at the marina) If they’re gonna surface, it’s gonna be somewhere around here.
[Is it just me or is Lanz quite bizarre with is intonation and mannerisms?!]
Heck: Yeah, and we think there’s a government agent involved. [ah! I guess they know agriculture is a common cover – well according to Burn Notice it is!]
…Lanz: We’ll get Stoller.
[Is it just me or does it sound like Lanz calls him Stroller?? anyone?]
whoa.. this is an ambassador who doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty! he wants to get Bart alone and torture the guy! eek!!!
The baddies are sure it’s their lucky day…
Heck: Lightening strikes twice, huh? They’re back. [Whahahaahah!!!! Just like Amanda’s cardigan!!!]
Lanz: There’s Pretty Boy now… [I agree with Lanz, he is a pretty boy indeed!] …And the same lady he was with.
I love that as Lanz says this we see Lee really is being a pretty boy… totally posing!!!
Whooo hooooo just take a moment to soak in all that goodness.. check out Lee posing at the bow … hands on jean clad hips like that? WHOO HAAA! he looks like a conqueror.. mighty sexy ship hand… A professional gardener? tee heee.
The Ambassador (Ambassawho?!!) tells the baddies to find Stoller, and be quiet about it..
Back to Lee and Amanda bringing the Mata Hari II into port..
By the way, I notice Lee still doesn’t have a life jacket on.. So Lee!!! SMK does these little touches so well – I put this down to KJ and BB knowing their characters.. and the powers that be being smart enough to listen to them! That said.. wish they hadn’t given Lee all the cheesy lines!
the couple on the Sea Chance notice their arrival.
I also notice that it is Amanda who is doing the steering here when it’s super important to get it right no more bumps Lee! Instead, it’s Lee’s job to throw the ropes to the guy on dock to help secure the boat – what a team!!!
We cut back to Lanz and Heck enjoying a super casual latte while they check out pretty boy
Now in dock, Amanda approaches Lee and removes her life jacket.
Amanda: Hey, Lee?
Lee (off camera): Hmm?
(we see the couple on Sea Chance are paying super close attention to Lee and Amanda now)
[kinda obvious but then I guess they are amateurs]
Amanda doesn’t respond she sits herself down and lets Lee come to her..
Amanda: Check out the Sea Chance.
Amanda responds looking down at her life vest and not at Sea Chance she’s gettin good at this!
Lee: Yeah, I know…
(Lee sits down next to her)
hoooo haaaa.. his jeaned thigh touching her knee.. Oh my..
…What do you say we go trolling and see what we can catch?
[Whooo another fishing pun? ahhh Lee after Over the Limit we are well.. Over the Limit!
ah I heard ‘trolling’ this time! when he said this in JEG I wasn’t sure.. thought it was patrolling! lol..]
Amanda: Sure, what are we gonna use for bait?
Lee: You and me…
[whooo he looks good.. nice close up!]
… Just a couple of fun-loving old salts sailing up the Potomac.
Amanda: Sounds a little flimsy.
Sounds lame! Interesting that Lee doesn’t go with the usual we’re a couple kind of thing.. no rings.. it all kind of goes unsaid that they’ll be a couple for this cover It’s just so natural now Oh and how Amazing does Amanda’s hair look after sailing in the high wind?? she’s caught Lee’s habit of secretly fixing his hair before close ups!
She’s gone from this to this:
Lee: We’ll build on it. [Whooo hooo!! You bet they will build on it! err oh right sorry.. Lee’s talking about the cover.. right.. of course! ]
Lee gives Amanda a look here.. A grin!
We cut to the wide shot…and they’re both grinning
Amanda gets up…and Lee follows her, giving her a pat on the back.
[A photo of every time they touch?
Well…. Yeahhhh!!! of course!!! ]
What a team!
I think this is Lee having fun and challenging Amanda a little – as he sometimes likes to do on the job (come on Amanda it’s happy sailing hour, get sailing happy!) And he is also telling her – I have confidence in you. We can do this I like this about Lee! in moments like this, Lee’s confidence is contagious, he gives Amanda confidence
What do you all think?
Lee and Amanda jump off the boat and walk over to the Sea Chance..
For the moment.. I’ll finish here!
Life’s crazy busy..as I’m sure it is for a lot of you.. I’d like to keep the story moving forward more regularly so I’m going to try doing smaller posts more often..
We’ll see how we all find it.. haaa I might end up doing a little smk a day.. to keep the doctor away! Getting back to this part of the episode – Anyone feel like sharing with us what these scenes are like in the script? How did this play out if Lee had sea sickness?! lol.. Can’t wait to hear from ya! byeeee!
