Hiya. time to step away from the disguises (thanks Learjet!!) and get back to our current episode – Wrong Way Home!
Lee and Amanda have just managed to ditch Shamba by making him stay at Joe’s room in case he returns..
Lee: Listen I don’t think Joe is going to go back there, so Shamba can sit on the house for all I care…
…We’re going to follow this lead.
(Lee motions to Amanda to sit on the bench while he gets something out of his pocket.)
Amanda: Oh wait, I thought you said that wasn’t a lead.
[LOL well there goes my idea that Amanda might have picked up on Lee’s silent conversation back in the room!]
Lee: Well, it will be in a minute…
…I need something to raise the impression of the last cheque he wrote.
Amanda: Like a pencil?
Lee: Yeah, that’ll work.
Amanda: There you go.
Lee: Okay— Look at that.
Lee: Dooleys. You know it?
Whooo hooo!!! Rather brave of Joe to use Travellers cheques while he is on the run though no?! but.. whatev..
I love watching Lee and Amanda here.. two peas in a pod, and that connection between them is as healthy as ever.. Only.. I think they don’t touch each other enough.. they act like they can’t stand each other – yep totally don’t mean it!!! they don’t stop touching each other the whole time!!!! Squeeeee!!! [tried to put as many touching pics here as possible ]
Here at the end is another one of those moments where they are both holding on to the same thing for an extra long time while they talk!
So, moving on to Dooleys (Is there an apostrophe?!).
Uh oh.. love the announcement that Prescott is on their trail – the way he walks in front of the camera,the close up and how removes his sunglasses..
this to me seems like a Terminator homage!!
with the sunglasses and all.. (that movie was 1984)
Prescott won’t stop until Joe is dead!!
Inside, we find Lee leaving the bar with a jug of beer.. He finds Amanda standing at the jukebox.
Lee: Ella, Basie,…
…Goodman, the Trogs.
Amanda: ha haa.. It’s great isn’t it?
[Wonderful to see the two of them getting along. and Amanda even laughs here – this is the most relaxed we’ve seen her all episode. Great to see being with Lee has a positive affect on her! I also love that there is no residual tension between the two of them because of that unfinished conversation – ]
Amanda: I don’t think they’ve changed a record on there since Joe and I used to come in here.
Lee: You came in here a lot didn’t you?
[I love that Lee seems curious about Amanda.. more so than about Joe here.. he’s just really curious to know more about Amanda and he’s relishing this little window into Amanda’s past]
(they turn and head back to the booth. Both of them grinning to themselves..)
Amanda: Oh yeah, we came in almost every night. Yep, we didn’t have much money but you know that thing…
…would take a nickel and play a song. We could always play that one.
(they arrive at their booth and sit down.)
[I always figured they just found this booth – but looking at it more closely, Amanda takes the glass off the table and Lee fills it for her. So it seems to me this was already their booth – and they had already shared a pizza from the looks of it. they’ve been there a little while..]
Lee: Mmm. Let’s hope he comes in here one more time.
Lee picks up the jug of beer and starts pouring Amanda a drink as he begins to speak.. but.. I shall hold off here for the moment. I don’t want to split this next big moment and I don’t want the post getting too long..
What do you all make of Dooley’s everyone? Is it my imagination or is there an awful lot of couples at Dooley’s?
Interesting for Lee to learn here that Amanda and Joe were here and out often – Amanda has not always been the homebody that he knows or at first imagined her to be. He is really viewing her more and more an a whole person – here he is getting a nice piece of the Amanda King Puzzle! and he is rivetted!!!
Maybe it’s just me.. but Amanda being here with Lee reminded me of waaaay back in Remembrance of things past – when Lee takes Amanda to Monks.
Amanda was fascinated to discover something new about Lee and the spy biz.. where they hang out.. though it was about the spy biz, it was also about Lee and how he spent his time.
Here? Lee also gets to know Amanda.. and discovers I guess that she doesn’t mind beer pizza and jazz music
Amanda copes very well with Lee’s attentiveness – she doesn’t seem nervous about this change in him at all.. I wonder how much of it she notices right now? What do you all think?
I mean she has sooo much other stuff going on at the moment.. but man.. we notice it right???
Any thought you’d like to share so far?? byee for now!!
