The siblings Lee and Amanda (Oh dear.. typing that is just soooo wrong!!) make their way out of the elevator hunting for their rooms..
Lee: Let’s see—202 and 205
Amanda: 202! (Amanda finds her room..)
Lee: All right.
Lee: Yeah, here we are.
[whoooo nice and close ]
Amanda: Think they oughtta allow brothers and sisters on the same floor?
Lee unlocks his door: We’re lucky we got in the same hotel. This place is packed. How’s it look?
(Amanda looks into her room, then back at Lee.)
Amanda: Great view of the parking lot.
Sorry these pics are a little blurry..
[haaa it’s such a normal conversation when you find your room huh! I’m sure the view in Lee’s room is much better.. Lee is in it! ]
(Amanda picks up her bag and moves into her room. Lee unlocks his door and looks into his room.)
Lee: Yeah, I know what you mean.
(It ain’t the cumberland huh.. Lee should have known what to expect.. he’s already been to a foxrun motel room in an earlier scene!) Lee heads into his room.
Okay- did you guys see it?! A REAL DOOZIE!!!
Just what did ‘brother and sister (not)’ Lee and Amanda get up to in that elevator between the reception and their floor?
Amanda on ground floor:
Amanda on second floor:
Amanda has changed her shirt!! whahahahaha!!!!
Hooo haaaa… did Lee and Amanda get up to something very non brother and sister-ish???!!!
Gee maybe she realised she’d been wearing it the night before…
and it was time to change? whahahaha!! Oh smk.. I love this about you!! you just never know what you’ll find sooo keep your eyes peeled everyone.. I am certain I don’t see everything there is to see! (as KC’s vehicle patrol posts will attest to! )
Anyway, moving on and it’s time to head to the multipurpose room! How exciting!!
[what does it say on the curb there? ‘umbia visitors’? What is it? Would smk have done an exterior shot at Columbia Pictures? well according to wikipedia Warners shared Burbank studios with them.. so maybe that’s what it is? what do you think? I’ll keep an eye out for this exterior shot throughout to see if we get a better view!]
Honestly, that froggy burger thing is creeping me out! Even more creepy than the Ronald McDonald clown!
Inside.. and things get even creepier..the creepy burger has his own song!
This really does have a Connie Beth cosmetics flavour to it!! A slightly unhinged… weird alternate reality!
They sing along with the piano “Let’s Go To Marvin’s”. S
cary.. truly scary! Be careful Lee and Amanda!!
People (singing): Let’s go to Marvin’s, and bite into a smile…
We know you love burgers, so we go that extra mile…
[eh? bite into a smile? you lost me.. the song just plain bites!]
We see Carla and Barry singing.. and a whole crowd of suckers attendees..
More singing: With juicy double patties, cheese, tomatoes, onions too. Served any way you like them, ‘cause we make them just for you…
Oh roflmbo!!!! Lee and Amanda are managing to sing along and keep a straight face!
Lee and Amanda seem to be having fun and trying to get the words right
Interesting.. this is the second time we’ve seen them singing together no?? or is there more?? anyone??
[Yes.. blurry.. this ep has been tough – lots of blurring.. but hey you can see Lee’s smiling at Amanda 🙂 )
More singing: So let’s go to Marvin’s, they go that extra mile. Let’s go to Marvin’s…
… and bite into a smile.
(The singing stops. Everyone smiles, applauds and cheers.)[that’s probably because the singing has stopped yes?! ]
Woman’s voice: Hear, hear!
Carla’s again taking the lead at the podium: And now, ladies and gentlemen… The man who knows what America wants to find between two buns…
(The lights are dimmed..)
… And the founder of a movement sweeping this great land… Marvellous Marvin Metz!
Marvin makes a creepy entrance by bursting through the Marvin creepy burger!
Arghhh!!! the creepy burger is alive!!
Marvin: Ha-hah ha-hah! … It’s Marvellous Marvin!
[Um I don’ t think you are suppose to call yourself Marvellous.. and do Americans spell that with one ‘l’? I spell it with two..
Hey the guy at that first table in the beard does not seem to be clapping as heartily as the others!
Do we meet him.. no don’t tell me!! Maybe he’s creeped out by the burger with eye glasses and skinny legs too!
Marvin: Ha-hah! So good to see you all.
Oh nooooo not again!!!!! the piano starts up .. and it’s time for the same song .. again! I’ve got it.. this is a cult! they’re trying to wear you down Lee and Amanda be careful!!
Is Marvin good?? or evil?? or.. teetering on the edge? (Maybe he’s heard this song too many times?!)
It’s time for Lee to make his move..(alas not on Amanda.. but on the case!) he whispers to Amanda: This is gonna last about another half hour. I’m gonna disappear and see what I can find.
Amanda: I’d better come with you.
[I’m hearing: please don’t make me stay here and sing this crappy song!]
Lee: No, you won’t.
Amanda: You need a lookout.
Amanda takes Lee’s arm and turns him around toward the exit,…
love how Amanda doesn’t even look at Lee!
Lee goes to resist.. but.. it’s pointless
Lee (breathes deeply and pauses): Uh. All right.
Lee starts walking away.. and Amanda follows him..
…with a little smile.. that Lee doesn’t even really resist her anymore me thinks!
We cut to the stage..
The singing continues..
this is a very-scary-place!!!
Carla looks adoringly at Marvin.. is it for real? or is she playing him?? The scene ends there.. so I shall too!
gotta go play some music and get that awful (burger) flippin tune out of my head!!
Would love to hear what you think of these scenes.. or the ep so far.. or any questions? gripes? theories? do tell! (You guys are awesome at resisting jumping ahead!!! thank you!!) byee for now!
