We pick up again with Amanda hiding under the covering on Bart’s boat.. The baddies make their way outside pushing and shoving the Cummings.. they order them to pick up JJ (because he got shot in the shoulder and can’t get up??!) Lol..
At gunpoint Heck motions for them to get off the boat together..
Heck leads the seagulls to a conveniently (randomly!) located vacant shed.. door open and ready to be utilised for evil! Muahahahaa.. Heck locks them inside and heads back to the boat..
Lanz has come up empty handed in his search..
Lanz: I looked everywhere. The videotapes aren’t down there.
Heck: Untie the boat. We’re gonna go up to the Triton club. I’ll contact Harcourt on the radio and have him meet us there.
Whooo great! Amanda heard their evil plans!!! muahahaha!! but how will she tell scarecrow?!
Heck heads up to the bridge to get the boat moving.. and Lanz works on getting the ropes untied.. So Amanda has a brief window of opportunity here to do something.
She pulls it in under her covering.. just in time before Lanz walks past to work on the front ropes.. Phew!
Amanda’s sooo lucky!
but what will she do with a life vest? don’t tell me she feels she needs to wear one for this unexpected journey?!! whahahaa.. She really does take safety very seriously!
Nahhh just kidding..
Under the covering we find Amanda writing a message on the life vest for Scarecrow. Hmm ‘Lee’ would have been quicker to write!
umm I must have missed something here.. umm where did she get the giant marker from??!! guys
Lanz gets back on board and the boat starts to leave the dock..
Lanz heads up to the bridge giving Amanda the chance to throw the life vest back onto the dock – somewhere.. anywhere!!!
Whoo hooo! there it goes! This really is a life vest!! Might save Bart and Amanda’s life!!
Oh looky! It landed right next to the random shed and with the side up with a message for Scarecrow (okay maybe she wrote it on both sides?!)
It even lands with the writing the right way up!
Cue the super suspenseful music.. Lee is in hot pursuit..
Lee arrives just as the Endeavour pulls away.. tyres squealing.. Music swelling.. Help is on the way!!!
Oh wait..no..no false alarm.. that’s not Lee!! It’s some poor schlep driving his car and wearing his clothes.. but.. not Lee the superspy.. ahem..
whahahaaa.. It’s an imposter!
Lee hears the seagulls crying for help and releases them.. fly birds! fly!!
Lee: All right, all right, I’m here!… (Lee opens the door- Umm it doesn’t seem to be locked?!)
…What the hell happened?
[whahahaa.. Lee is really sympathetic here haaaa..not! love it! ]
David: Those guys took Bart.
David: We blew it.
Lee: Here, sit down.
Diane: I wish to God we’d listened to you.
[oh dear.. well.. at least they were well meaning maybe now they can apply for a job at the agency? and get some training?]
Lee: All right, now, what about the woman I was with — Amanda? She here?
J.J: Tall, brunette? (gorgeous..)
J.J: I think she’s still on the boat.
Lee: Oh, great. [Oh boy!! well Lee this is Amanda you could have predicted that ]
Diane: Wait a minute. What is — what is this?
Diane Cummings spots the life vest..
and ta da..
Lee (reads): Scarecrow, Triton Club. Triton Club?..
— yeah, I know where that is…
[Of course he does!! can you imagine him looking all determined to find Amanda and Bart and asking for directions to the triton club?whahaha! ]
…You can take this card, call this number. Talk to a Mr Melrose….
…Tell him we’ve got a code Seven-TAK emergency. And get on it quick. You sure you’re OK?
J.J: I’m all right.
ahh Lee is such a superstud.. he takes a last moment to make sure JJ is okay before racing off to save the day! He’s the whole package!!!
Lee Lee he’s our man!! Ahem! sorry.. got carried away there!
A code 7 tack emergency?? Ohhh kaaay.. I just love these random codes they throw out there!
I miss the old gag of needing to contact Billy and not being able to get through.. what ep was that in?? didn’t Amanda try and describe his office or something?! I forget.. anyone?
Seems those days are long gone.. now anyone can call and talk to section chief Billy!! err is this a new development thanks to the efficiency study?! tee hee..
Lee jumps into a speedboat heading for the triton club… err Lee have you handled one that big by yourself before? sure you’re ok there buddy??
Well I’ll stop here for the moment.. anyone else blown away by action Lee racing to the rescue?! BB somehow manages to do this cheese with dignity! well.. so far!! but I’ll come back to that!
And what about Amanda?? such luck!! lol.. nahhh such quick thinking!! and carrying around a big marker just in case she might need it one day? genius! Okay byee for now- can’t wait to hear from ya!
