Kiwismh’s Script notes- After conclusion of the scene at Lee’s… Amanda returns home at night.
The King den – night.
Dotty is sitting up watching TV . Jamie and Philip are sacked out on the couch. Amanda enters, and realises her mother is sleeping. She turns off the TV, which of course wakes Dotty up.
Dotty – Amanda…what time is it?
Amanda – Too late for you to be sleeping sitting up. I meant to call.
Dotty – Any word?
Amanda – The best… we found him. He’s fine… he’ll visit soon.
Dotty – That’s good. You want me to help you put the boys to bed.
Amanda – They might as well stay.
Dotty – Ok, night. I knew it would work out. Dotty shuffles off to bed.
Amanda (to herself) – I sure hope it does.
Amanda turns off a few lights, then stands for a long moment looking down at her angelic sleeping sons. She gives the each a kiss on the cheek.
Amanda – Sleep tight guys… your father sends his love.
Amanda turns out the light and heads for bed.
Soooo what do you all think??!! Why did they cut it?? Kiwismh, why did you choose to share this scene with us? (Thanks by the way!! 🙂 )
Moving on.. and it’s time I guess to poke a snake with a stick and see if he wants to bite! Or maybe I should say, knock on the snake’s door and see if he wants to bite?!
[oh rofl!!! did you guys here the little snake riff as Foster opens the door?!!!]
Foster: What’s so damn important?
Lee: Hello Mr Foster. I’m a Federal Agent…
…and what’s so “damned important” is the amount of freedom you enjoy for the next 10 or 20 years.
[whooo what a line!! and said with such suave panache! soooo debonaire! Teee heee.. Such a gleam in his eyes.. I think Lee enjoys his work and.. we get a good look at Lee’s ID badge here.. ]
Foster moves from the door and let’s Lee in.
[Looks like Foster is in his jimjams.. oh the indignity! 🙂 ]
… Thank you.
Lee heads inside turning to almost close the front door.. leaving it ajar.. and he heads in to talk to Snake Foster. Foster: Serious allegations Mr Stetson. A great deal of money. Do you have a name to attach to this or is strictly for my edification?
Hey, I think this use to be Mr Falcone’s office from Car wars! or at least the curtains are the same.. just no fringe..
Lee: Actually I have two names. (Lee calls out to the door:) … Gentlemen!
(Joe and NotShamba enter)
…You know Joe King,..
…and I believe by the look on your face you recognise the Prime Minister of Estoccia.
[Hilarious! No one else in Washington did!!! err well except for Joe]
Foster: Good-day Mr Stetson.
[Now that’s magical and snake like! He refers to Lee by name, but Lee never told him his name! rofl!!]
Lee nods and makes a move to leave.. pleased with how things have gone.
Lee: Good-day Mr Foster.
Why is Lee not wearing a suit? Seeing the three men standing there, Joe and Lee are dressed so similarly! Not liking that!! lol..
Well the moment Lee, Joe and Notshamba leave, the snake Foster is on the phone.. oh goody.. the agency would have tapped it right?! ahem.. On to the schoool!!!
Receptionist Arlington Heights Middle School: Just a moment. (she calls out to Prescott no longer looking like a private investigator by the way.. ) ..Mr Pryor!
Prescott: Thank you. Yes sir?
[He doesn’t half look suspicious trying to go around the corner! And how does Foster know the school’s phone number of by heart?! tee hee.. ]
…No, I don’t see a problem with that at all.
Right – right…
He finishes the call and hands it back to the receptionist with the most gag worthy smile of sincerity.. ugh.. this guy is such a creep!
…Thank you very much.
Amanda: Okay, have a good day. Be good.
Jamie: Bye Mom.
Amanda: Bye bye. Be good.
They share kisses and goodbyes and the boys head off..
Mrs Dennis approaches the car..
Amanda: Good morning Mrs Dennis.
Mrs Dennis: Good morning Mrs King. Did you get my message?
Amanda: No, I’m sorry, I didn’t.
Mrs Dennis: Well, it’s just that he’s here again this morning and I’m very nervous about it without your say so. [and yet you let him stay.. grr..]
Amanda: Just a minute, Mrs Dennis. Who’s here again?
Mrs Dennis: Your private detective.
Amanda: My private detective?
Mrs Dennis: The one you sent to watch the boys in case your husband comes after them. You really should have called me first.
Amanda: Mrs Dennis could you show me where he is please.
Mrs Dennis: Yes, he’s right inside.
Amanda rushes in to where the private detective was waiting..
We see Amanda and Mrs Dennis walking toward the office, and there’s no Mr PrescottPryor.. (how come he gets two names! why can’t notshamba?!)
Mrs Dennis: I’ll check to see where he went.
Amanda: Thank you Mrs Dennis.
(Mrs Dennis heads into the office to try and find Prescott.. Amanda gets out her mobile errr thingy.. phone? and punches in some numbers )
Amanda into the phone: Lee, are you there?
Lee: I’m here Amanda. What is it?
[wow.. quick draw Lee! He certainly gets that phone thingy out and antenna up pretty fast while he’s driving there! lol! Oh hey, no corvette.. guess three’s a crowd.. have we seen it at all this episode? anyone? I don’t remember.. ]
Amanda: Look, I think it’s an emergency. I’m at the school. There’s been someone here. I think he’s after the boys. He’s been here before looking for Joe.
Joe: God no. We should have guessed he’d do something like this.
[Yes! You should have! well.. Lee the professional agent probably shoulda had some kind of protection for the boys – given he was poking the snake with a stick and then waiting for it to bite.. Poor Lee’s character.. for things to come together plot wise Lee seems to be rather bad at his job from time to time I put it down to plot demands.. we must have a final showdown where Lee saves the day! sorry.. I digress!]
Lee: Amanda, where are you?
[I must resist looking at that lame phone thingie.. focus on Lee.. there.. that’s better!! Naughty Lee! he isn’t wearing his seat belt!! Actually none of these men are! very naughty!]
Amanda: At the school, 9th and Filer.
Joe: That’s the Middle School.
[Umm you do know your children go to middle school do you Joe?! Hmm I think at this point Lee may know the boys lives better than Joe does! ]
Lee: Right Amanda, you find the kids and you stay on the air okay? We’re on our way.
Amanda immediately hangs up.. or whatever that thing does.. she puts down the antenna… is she still on the air?!
Mrs Dennis approaches..aaaand sorry guys! gotta finish up here for the moment.
Hey I notice Amanda calls Mr Stetson Lee over the phone thingie that Joe can hear.. Hmm.. Sooo what do you all think of this little set up? do tell! byeee for now..
