On to Amanda’s and it’s dinner time I guess..
We hear Amanda cry out: I’m home!
then we see a couple of bags of Marvellous Marvin’s burgers come into view..
Umm Marvin’s burger looks to be wearing err eye glasses?! and looks like a frog to me! (are those stripey legs similar to McD’s?! Ronald’s or Hamburgler’s?)
Gee.. what are the odds that at that very moment Amanda was buying Marvin’s burgers – it’s almost like this whole thing is scripted.. but no that can’t be it.. Lee and Amanda are real! Umm Amanda psychically sensed Lee was focusing on Marvin’s and so she went out to buy some – trouble with that is Amanda.. Lee can be focusing on it because it’s Killing Thousands of People!!! don’t eat it!!!
Okay..okay.. Lee and Amanda are not real!
Phillip mumbles: I’m gonna beat you!
Dotty: Did you get the Marvellous Marvin’s?
[Hey! You cunning viewers you!! did you catch that??!!! It’s umm Marvellous Marvin’s!!!!!!!!! Aie!]
Amanda: Yes, I did.
Amanda: Are you just starving? [You’d have to be to eat that! How Marvellous!]
Phillip: All right!
(Amanda looks at the bags and picks one up.)
Amanda: Okay, Phillip, for you the double Whamo with double cheese, pickles and mustard, jumbo onion rings…
and you have the Choco Blocko shake. [eh? we didn’t see her carrying shakes! Is it in a bag? that’s just wrong.. and lol why does there suddenly seem to be so many more bags all of a sudden?!]
Phillip: All right!
(Dotty sighs and shakes her head)
[Yep.. Hotdogs last week.. hamburgers and shakes this week.. ]
Amanda: Jamie, you’ve got the Torpedo Burger with extra sauce, jumbo Fabulous Fries … and the Mega Mug a’ cola… no ice.
Amanda’s in hyperdrive! someone slow her down!: Mother … a fish burger for you. No tartar sauce. And for me a fish burger, with tartar sauce…
Amanda to Dotty: I’ll get you a glass of milk.
[Umm Amanda, Dotty is a big girl now, she can get her own glass of milk..]
While Amanda is facing the fridge getting out the milk.. We see Lee come into view out the window.. Oh my.. the look he gives her as he looks at her – but she hasn’t yet seen him?! hoooo haaaaaaa!!!
You can juuuust make him out
In fact now I think of it, he is quite brazen here.. Is Lee unconsciously hoping Dotty or the boys will see him? Surely the boys can’t have forgotten what he looks like from last week yet?! lol.. then again, Lee doesn’t understand the intensity of these boy’s love of rubbish food! They’re focused on their double whamo and torpedo!
Amanda sees Lee at the window and she fumbles with the glass..
I know.. it’s so hard to take your eyes of him isn’t it Amanda?!
Lee gives her a calm smile..(flashes his dimples) I’m here when you can! please?!
He tosses his head to the back door.. signalling for her to come out.
Amanda nods.. and turns back to the fridge,
(yes she’s blurry.. and her eyes look evil.. lol but look at how Lee is watching her!!! -evil eyes and all 😉 )
we just see Lee giving Amanda a smile as he moves away from the window while watching her in action.
Amanda: Ahhh… a glass of milk for Mother. [Amanda remembered what she was doing after seeing Lee at the window? this woman is made of strong stuff!!!]
Amanda gets the glass of milk.. then heads outside.. how did she explain that to the family? or were they so starving they didn’t notice?!
Lee: I just heard you with the kids.
Lee: You know your burgers.
Amanda: Well, I’m a mother. I have to.
[I think this Marvin’s case highlights how Amanda’s knowledge of the everyday normal person will be useful with this case.. Lee is only just beginning to learn about hamburgers – he missed out on learning about them in Remembrance of things past because he was no longer dead
Lee: I.. I guess we won’t be able to have those hamburgers and wine at your place… you know.. like real people.
Amanda: No, I guess you’ll be able to go back to your fancy restaurants and nightclubs.
Amanda: you’re not disappointed are you?
Lee: Me? Nah….. are you? Amanda: Me? No. Lee: hm..
I wish I had more time to look back on earlier episodes as we walk.. more often. Guys please feel free to mention earlier references and provide a link for us [– I can convert it to a hyperlink for you when I see it.. ]
Okay! Focus Iwsod.. We’re in season 3 now!!
Amanda has lattice work in her backyard!
Amanda: What are you doin’ here?
[okay guys.. when else has Amanda asked this question like this?? ]
Lee: Oh, I was just in the neighbourhood and thought I’d skulk by and say hi.
Amanda: Very funny.
…Actually, I’m looking for a business partner…
(we cut to Amanda)
[Lee wants to run a burger franchise?!]
Amanda: Ooh, yeah, I guess so. What kind of business?
Lee: Does it matter?
Amanda (deadpan and quickly): No.
[anyone not love this?? I think KJ is inspired by the old fast paced comedies in her delivery here…
Amanda doesn’t even know what the business is.. and she’s up for it.. she trusts Lee.. I think Lee loves this about her – she doesn’t immediately jump to the negatives.. she’s ready to give anything a good go! She’s open!]
Amanda then smiles..
Love love love the smile Lee gives her at her response..
Lee: It’s right up your alley…
…Double Whamos, Torpedoes, Choco Blocko shakes…
Amanda: Mega Mug a’ cola, no ice.
[Mega mouthful! but hey.. let’s not mention the quickie chickie chicken shack.. or the quickie chicken snack shack I guess Service Above and Beyond was taking off KFC.. and now it’s Mc D’s turn! Aie! sorry I keep digressing into season 1 again! So far this ep seems loaded with season 1 references.. or is it just me? ]
Lee (whispers): Right.
In response, Amanda gives Lee a big smile..
Amanda looks so pretty here.. and just really happy
She’s thrilled to be going on her next adventure involving fast food.. and Lee the scene ends here..
Well for the first scene after the ending of The Wrong Way Home things are looking very good here!! Lee is seeking out Amanda.. he’s watching her furtively and smiling.. he greets her with a compliment..enjoys Amanda’s references to being a mother.. and then their commitment to each other is enjoyed together freely when Amanda admits she doesn’t care what the business partnership is about – she’s up for it!
There are zero indications that Lee is thinking Amanda and Joe are back on.. and Amanda is giving plenty of indications to Lee that she’s 100% on board – bye bye Joe!!
You know last week, when Amanda was randomly re-potting those yellow flowers and Joe turned up with the boys? I had the random thought that – nooooo the backyard is Lee and Amanda’s space!! I don’t want Joe in it So it’s lovely to see Lee and Amanda hanging out in her backyard yet again! Things are back to normal
Thoughts guys?? I can’t wait to hear anything you’d like to share.. or any questions you want to throw out there??
