Amanda and Joe have got to talk..
We see the exterior of a large building.
Have we seen this one before? anyone?
We then see Lee looking around for Joe and Amanda and so far not having much luck..
We find Joe and Amanda scurrying into the library- well Joe is scurrying and kinda pushing Amanda along for the ride.
What do you make of the way Joe handles Amanda here?
I find it very controlling –but then, I guess he sees Amanda as a housewife and the grumpiest man she knows is the milkman Joe is in for a shock!
Amanda: Joe, wait a minute. You gotta stop running, it’s not safe.
[help me.. why is it ‘not safe’ Amanda doesn’t know they are in danger yet?]
’it’s not safe’ is still ringing in my ears and we see the terminator’s shiny shoes approaching – think there’s a shot in the Terminator like this too..
Joe: I can’t. Somebody needs a fall guy and I’m afraid it’s me. Amanda I told you it was way too dangerous for you to try to see me.
Amanda: Oh J—
(Amanda stops short the second she hears the cocking sound of a gun)
[.. go Amanda! you legend you!! Watch and learn Joe- Amanda is no longer just a housewife!]
Ohhh rofl!!! so this is where KC found the picture of the filing cabinet shooting!!!
whahahaha.. [where is that meme, gosh.. anyone got time to search for the link? me no ] Anyway, we see a terminator arm reach around the side of a filing cabinet and shoot his gun at Amanda and Joe. Amanda shoves Joe down to take cover..
By the way- this is a magic terminator gun.. we hear one gunshot – we see two bullet holes!
We see Lee outside immediately react to the gunshot. He looks up, his gun ready.. and he takes off toward the noise. Hurry Lee!!
We see Amanda and Joe moving quietly around the library..
We see another shot..
This time Amanda and Joe are moving between the book shelves…
We see Lee turn toward the noise outside- ta da!!! the Georgetown university Research Library.. what a non descript entrance.. Hmm this must be the staff entrance ahem.
The terminator walks to a different part of the library.
We see Amanda and Joe still hiding between the books.
Amanda motions to Joe to move to a different spot.
We see Lee arrive, carefully entering the library gun drawn.
Whooo he’s looking good!!!
ahem.. focus iwsod!
Lots of Amanda and Joe moving, the Terminator Prescott moving.. and Lee moving..
gee.. which one do we want to see a picture of??!!! did I guess right?!
Back to Amanda and Joe.. still crouched and trying to avoid detection. They pause a moment, and Amanda seems to give her okay to moving..
Could this be Amanda now taking the lead?? Whereas when they entered the library Joe was running the show?! Very interesting!
In a wide shot, Lee comes across the terminator.. but there’s a crouching innocent bystander..
(man.. the consequences of not returning your books on time at this library are brutal!)
Lee to crouching lady: Get outta here…
(Love how she suddenly just flings the books)
However, when she flings the books it gets the terminator’s attention.. so he does a groovy roll and then takes a shot at Lee and runs out of the library.
Lee runs after him, but can’t get a shot..
Prescott the terminator gets away to fight another day (Hmm let me guess – He’ll be back!! )
Lee immediately looks very worried..
He looks around.. searching for Amanda.. (okay and maybe Joe )
Lee calls out: Amanda!
Amanda pops up from behind the counter: Here!
ROFL Amanda scares the daylights out of Lee!
Lee: Come on…
Hey.. do you think that little sign there saying ‘History’ is deliberate?
(Lee helps Amanda over the counter.)
I like to think Lee wants to touch her asap to feel better about the close call there!
(to Joe): … you too… there’ll be people crawling all over this place soon. Let’s go.
LOL umm is there no other way out of there? I can just picture librarians getting in and out that way whahahaa. okay they were in a hurry I guess! but the idea of librarians doing this cracked me up!
I notice that Lee doesn’t let go of Amanda until they are truly running out the door
Joe? He can get himself over the counter – haa.
Amanda: Joe, could you get my purse?
rofl.. the magical purse! don’t worry Amanda – it will find it’s own way back to you!!
The scene ends there.. with the three of them rushing out of the library..
Okay I need to finish up here..
What do you make of all this?
What must Joe make of all this? who is this man that Amanda seems to know? who calls Amanda by her first name, who carries a gun, and who touches her so easily?!
And how did Amanda manage to avoid the gunshots?? and how did she know they were in danger and to take cover?? Joe must be absolutely full of questions now!!
