We’re back!!! Hooray!!
So Lee, Amanda and Joe have headed to the EAO head office for Joe to access their files and get the evidence he needs.. ‘state-side invoices’…
Apparently this is the EAO, anyone recognise it?!
Hmm this is what it looked like earlier..
I think the EAO has gone all out to hide their information, they’ve changed offices! Only.. why didn’t Amanda notice?!
So, looks like Lee has broken in so Joe can get access.. This reminds me of The First Time.. when Lee broke into the post office with civilian Amanda…
I gotta say, that’s a pretty flimsy looking lock on the door!
Joe: This will only take a couple of minutes.
(Joe sits down at a computer and gets to work ‘pushing papers’ )
(Joe’s mad! The EAO file isn’t there!!!! He slams his fist on the table. We see Lee quietly look at Amanda,
they share a look.)
…They’ve purged the records. Everything I needed to prove my case. My only hope died with the Prime Minister.
Lee: What about Shamba? [lol what a great line after saying the ‘prime minister’ is dead!]
Joe: Well, if he’s in on it he’s not going to say anything.
[Umm Joe, I think Lee knows a little more about this stuff than you do!]
Lee: He will if we give him a bad enough nightmare…
LOL Lee makes a move for the door. I think he’s kinda looking forward to giving Shamba a nightmare!

At the EAO trying to break into the computer records.
While Joe is checking EAO computer, the following scene occurs with Lee and Amanda.
They are wearing black jumpsuits. Lee and Amanda have an array of sophisticated electronic gear. We hear footsteps off camera. Lee and Amanda move into the corridor.
Lee and Amanda in the corridor, waving their “sniffers” oblivious to a Federal Protective Service Guard who spots them. From here we can’t see Joe.
Guard-Hey you people! Freeze!
Instead of complying they continue to sweep the ceiling, the walls and desks with the blinking electronics. The guard comes closer, hand on his sidearm.
Guard –I said freeze! Just what the hell do you think you’re doing in here?
Amanda (checking gear)- I’m getting a reading sir.
Lee – Well, it confirms our hypothesis. Poor guy.
Before the guard can ask, “what hypothesis?”, Lee waves an elaborate plastic ID at him, several badges together. And while he’s looking at these Lee and Amanda pull their particle masks over their mouths and noses.
Guard – Okay, I give up. What’s a contamination sweep?
Lee waves his sniffer around the guard. It begins beeping rapidly.
Amanda – You’ve heard of ‘spy dust’, the powder the Russians are using on our Embassy personnel in Moscow?
Guard – Yeah.
Lee – Not just Moscow.
Here. Right here.
Amanda – I think you stepped in it. You’re covered head to toe.
Lee brings his sniffer close again. It beeps like crazy.
Lee – It’s invisible… at first. I hope you’ve got showers downstairs.
Guard (looking worried) – We’ve got showers. Lee – Then get in there and scrub mister. Scrub for your life.
Guard (back peddles) – I’ve got to send somebody up to be with you here…
Amanda – Scrub! You’re starting to glow.
The guard turns and runs for it. Amanda and Lee take off their masks and give each other “five”. ___________________________________________________
The episode version was pretty dull huh..
I think it would have been fun to see Lee and Amanda undercover, working together..and Dang!!! We missed out on Lee in a black jumpsuit??!!!! Nooooo!!!
I think it would have been good to see a light-hearted moment (other than Shamba).. why do you think they pulled it?
Needed to cut time? Budget needed to be reduced?? Or was there a plot reason for cutting this?? Were they not wanting at this point to show Lee and Amanda working as such a team? or for Joe to see Lee and Amanda working together? another plot reason? A political reason maybe?
(radioactive jokes not allowed until The Simpson’s started?!)
So what do you all think of the script version guys??
Okay I’ll finish here for the moment.. don’t want to get into the next scene till the next post – would love to hear your thoughts!! Soooo happy to be back walking through Wrong Way Home again!!! Hope you are too – byeeee!
