Moving on and it’s daytime again..
We see the corvette pull up at the Foxrun Motel..
Lee and Amanda get out – why is Amanda wearing the same clothes she was wearing last night?
Lee seems to be wearing the same clothes also.. this is weird! Just what did Lee and Amanda do all night? teehee..
With the corvette’s magical glass boot open Amanda and Lee start getting out their luggage.
Amanda: You know, now… there are a few things that we probably oughtta talk about before we get checked in, you know…
Lee (over Amanda): Yeah.
Time for an Amanda ramble!
Amanda: … I mean, we don’t have any problems now…
Lee: We’ll just-
Amanda doesn’t let Lee get a word in!: … but we’re out here in the parking lot in the middle of the day and we wouldn’t want to have any problems later, so…
[Ahhh back to the old idea of rooms and beds and Lee not telling Amanda up front how this is going to work! I can’t blame Amanda for asserting herself here and wanting to get it straight before they check in!]
… if we could just get a few things straight…
Lee (tries to get a word in): Amanda-
Amanda (continues): … now, about the room…
Lee (over Amanda): -This really isn’t necessary.
[Given your history in this dept Lee, I can’t blame Amanda for thinking it is necessary.. and Lee had given her no indication of what he had planned evidently- what do you guys think? I do like though that Lee is a little exasperated with Amanda here, but he doesn’t sound cross.. he sounds patient ]
Amanda: I know it isn’t, but… just indulge me, okay?
Lee: Oh, all right. [Yeah Lee, you are gonna want to hear this! ]
Amanda: Well, all right, in the first place…
(pauses) … I like to take my shower first thing in the morning…
Lee (over Amanda): Uh huh.
Amanda (continues): Now, I know that there’s some men…
…that like to go into the bathroom and they lock the door, and they go in with the newspaper and they shave, and they read the paper…
Lee (nodding, over Amanda): Yes, yes, yes, yes. [Lee seems to silently add- get on with it! but he is patient ]
Amanda (continues): And I don’t know what they do in there, but they take over an hour…
…and I just hope that you’re not one of those kind of guys, you know…(I’m guessing Lee would be stylin his hair for an hour!)
Lee (over Amanda): Well, I-
Amanda (cuts Lee off again!): But, anyway, even if you are,..
…maybe we can figure out some kind of a compromise that’s comfortable for both of us…
…Now, the other thing is,..
[Lee seems to chuckle to himself here.. there’s more??!!! oh Lee you are gonna want to hear this!!]
…when I sleep at night… I like to leave the window cracked just about this much.
Lee (nods): Um-hmm. [boy.. Lee is indulging Amanda!]
Amanda (continues): Just enough for a little fresh air…
[This is super indulgent of Lee! Actually I think Lee would know that already thanks to his late night visit in A Lovely Little Affair.. hooo haaaa!]
…Now, I hope that’ll be all right with you—if it won’t I’ll crack it just about that much.
Lee: We’re registered as brother and sister.
Amanda: You and me?
[yes I agree Amanda – that’s weird! Love how Amanda’s still holding up her fingers!]
Lee: Yes. We’ve got our own room. Bathroom, bedroom, the whole works.
Amanda: Well, that’ll make things…
(lol finally she puts her fingers down and smiles.. she seems to take this in her stride pretty well.. a bit stunned though happy)
… much easier.
Lee chuckles as he agrees: Yeah.
(deadpan and quickly): We don’t look a thing alike.
Amanda doesn’t wait to see or hear Lee’s reaction to that.. she just bends straight down to pick up her bags.
Lee’s turn to be stunned!
Lee opens and closes his mouth,
looks to the side,
gives Amanda a bit of a glare.. he follows her as she walks off.
The scene ends here..
So what’s going on here everyone??!!!
Lee’s reaction to Amanda’s comment that they don’t look alike is interesting.. is it Lee thinking… true we don’t.. maybe I shouldn’t have gone with that!
or… True, but who cares! You’re the one who always makes a fuss when we have to share a room.. I thought you’d be happy about it!
or.. is it – Drat! She was okay with us sharing a room?! I missed an opportunity here!!
or.. is it.. we could have shared a room? I don’t think we can do that right now with things so unresolved between us.. it’s a bit scary and this is for the best – don’t push me Amanda!!
Or – all the above?? tee hee.. Or any other ideas?
I remember the first time I saw this scene, which is the only scene I remember from this ep really – the window crack scene! I thought this scene was right up there with the embarrassing ‘we could just go out to dinner’ moment in Vigilante Mothers!!!! but now strangely, I’m fine with it!
Maybe it’s because I just see it as Amanda trusting Lee completely now, and being professional.. and given Lee’s history in this department she can’t be blamed really IMHO for assuming they were sharing a room.. and that their cover was married couple.
Can you imagine if they had played that cover in this ep? I think the Lee and Amanda lust bottle is corked tightly right now.. and it could be a wise thing they aren’t tempted to push beyond where they are comfortable in the heat of the moment hooo haaaa..
Yet again, we are going to have an ep where Lee and Amanda are hiding the true nature of their relationship from those around them. In Wrong way home, they didn’t know each other. In this one? Brother and Sister?!!! Hmm going to be interesting to see how they cope with this!!!
It’s fascinating that Lee didn’t go with the obvious married couple cover – why did he do that??
Because he wanted to ensure they could get separate rooms? was that for Amanda’s sake? or his??
Whooooooo can’t wait to hear what you all make of this! Okay bye for now!
