We cut to Suburbia.. and Dotty is frazzled and looking for her keys in kitchen drawers.
Dotty: Amanda, where are the keys?
Amanda: I got them right here, mother, right here.
Amanda rushes in with the keys to put away the milk.
Dotty: Are you sure you don’t need the car.
Amanda: No, I’m sure I don’t. You can just drop me off.
Dotty: I hope I don’t have to parallel park, I’m only good when I can fit in those little slots.
Love how Amanda gives a little laugh at this comment of Dotty’s.. she doesn’t even know what to call a parking spot
So looks like Dotty managed to get her licence after all – well done Dotty!
As they leave the kitchen, the phone rings.. Amanda volunteers to answer it while Dotty heads out to the car
(parked in the driveway slot )
Joe: I hope I didn’t startle you. [This remark leads me to think Joe rarely calls]
Amanda: No, you sound close.
[Ah.. so Amanda knows it sounds different.. Maybe this means Joe did call from Estoccia.. just not very often?]
Joe: Yeah, I’m here. I’m here in DC.
Amanda: Well that’s great.
Whoa.. Joe is such a mystery.. and how Amanda feels about him is as much of a mystery at this point to me. Amanda looks excited/happy that Joe is in town.. umm is this because she’s missed him?? or is this about the boys seeing their dad? Just where is Amanda’s head and heart when it comes to Joe?
Since I haven’t seen this ep in ages – I’m yet to figure this out.. Sorry I think I’ll be doing this a bit this episode.. asking questions along the way – that we may not yet be able to answer based on where we are up to in the episode.. Hope you don’t mind. but it helps me to ponder these things!
Anyone else at this point curious to find out how Amanda feels about Joe???!!!!
Joe: Now Amanda, just listen to me please. I’m in trouble. Now you’ll be getting calls and— I think you should tell them— well just tell them you don’t know where I am because you don’t. I think it’s best that way.
Voice: Joe, your cab’s here.
Amanda: Joe, if you’re in trouble, please tell me. Let me help.
Joe: No, it’s too dangerous. I’m sorry Amanda, I wish I knew what else to do. But I’ve gotta stay away from you and the kids. I’ve gotta go. Now, I’m okay, so try not to worry.
hey, is Joe wearing his wedding ring?
Amanda: Joe, wait! Don’t hang—
Joe hangs up.. lol.. Amanda does Lee’s trick – she looks down the phone!
Amanda looks very concerned for Joe..
What’s she going to do? go straight to Lee? got straight to IFF? Will she tell Dotty about the call? Hmm.. we’ll see! but from her expression.. I’d say she’s off to do something to help Joe!
Billy: Joe King is the fugitive’s name? Joseph King with the EAO? [Umm does Billy know Joe King or Joseph King? He must be joking Okay.. had to get that out of way – I think it was Jestress who pointed out that Joe King sounds like Joking! and.. I love it!! tee hee.. ]
Billy and Francine are in the bullpen talking with an agent on a radio of some kind.
Agent’s Voice: That’s him. They want him back before the state funeral or all hell’s gonna break loose. They closed the airport but they think he’s already back in the States.
Francine: How long have we got to find him.
As the agent answers, we see Lee get up and head to the printer to retrieve a print out.
Agent’s Voice: I guess, 48 hours. The Estoccian government is bracing for a revolution. They’re sending one of their cops to supervise your investigation. [why 48 hours? it’s always 48 hours! ]
Francine: How good is their case?
Agent’s Voice: His prints are on the gun that killed the guard. Who knows. There are rumours about theft engineered by the dead man and Joe King.
Here we see Lee reading what’s on that print out and looking mighty concerned..
[Joe’s prints are on the gun that killed the guard? Hmm.. how did they manage that? we did see him pick up a gun- so his prints were actually on the guard’s gun.. maybe this will be explained as we progress. Engineered theft huh.. how ironic!!! There’s ‘engineered theft’ alright ]
Okay guys.. sorry I’ve got to cut this scene in half.. will be back with more very soon! byeeeeeee for now!!
