It’s location time! You know.. the location we’ve know for ages but been waiting to get a phone call about to identify it? Me confused..
We’re in the evil countryside.. where bad things happen on smk! We see a sign:
We find Marvin looking nervous..
Lee’s picks up on this and heads over the Marvin to reassure him.
Guess that’s the ‘team’ behind Lee there? Motorbike front and centre.. gee what could they want to use that for?
(Whoo Billy’s there too!)
Lee: Just ten more minutes, Marvin…You all right?
Marvin (nods): Yeah.
Lee: Okay, now you’re the key—remember that. You just stand there. When they show up, you hand them this briefcase.
(Lee hands the briefcase to Marvin.) -See Marvin, that’s how you HAND someone a briefcase!
Lee: We’ll handle the rest. Now, there’s a homing device inside so we can follow them. We also have a chopper standing by, so everything’s gonna be all right.
[If Lee told me everything’s gonna be alright, I’d believe him.. and then.. well .. swoon! checked shirt or not! Love the action man shoulder holster!! hooo haaaa..]
Marvin: They’re greedy, selfish criminals, Mr. Stetson… [Sooo Marvin knows Lee’s real name now? Guess so..] …Barry’s blood, but it’s true… [oh my.. why does this seem to be too little too late in that regard? Just not feelin it] …They’re bad people. We can’t let them get away with this.
Lee: We’re not gonna let them get away with it…
…And you let us handle it, all right?
[Yeah! look what happened last time you went running in Marvin, you got Amanda captured! Now do what you’re told.. Amanda’s life depends on it!]
Marvin: All right.
I guess the point of this little exchange is to show Marvin is not sure the agency (you know- the experts) can handle this..? thoughts? Oh and to give us some swoony action man Lee!
We cut to a van pulling up.. Barry and Carla get out.
Why does Barry look ridiculous in that faux leather jacket?
Too wimpy for it maybe..
Carla looks down at the ‘location’
Carla: It’s clear… but that doesn’t mean anything… [Aie, it’s like she’s talking to a five year old!) …It’s five of; you’d better get ready to ride.
Barry gets a motorbike out of the back of the van..
What luck. Lee has a motorbike and a ‘leather’ jacket too!!! It’s the duel of the jackets! who shall win?!!!
We cut back to the Freezer.. That’s Freezer 4!!!!!
the timer says it’s 4:01.. 44 minutes till it’s Amanda and Francine popsicles! eek!
Inside Francine and Amanda are sitting down, leaning against the wall.
Amanda: Francine, do you feel funny? …I feel like I’ve had too much champagne.
Francine: Light-headed. There’s not enough oxygen.
Amanda (agrees): Mmm.
We cut back to a close up on Amanda, suddenly looking much more alert.. lol they don’t match.. but.. whatev..
Amanda: You know, Francine, I’m really sorry if I was ever rude to you…
In response to this, the look on Francine’s face is hilarious – like.. Huh???
We watch Francine as Amanda continues: …I never meant to be rude to you…
Slowly Francine turns to look at crazy Amanda.. speaking some weird language that Francine doesn’t understand?! tee hee..
… and I think, maybe, sometimes… I just didn’t… understand you as well as I should have, and…
[Nooo I think we all understand Francine pretty well.. Amanda you’re not obliged to like everyone.. it’s okay..]
… you know, it’s just sometimes you’re just such a witch!
It seems to be out of Amanda’s mouth before she realises it.. lol.. I love it! Can’t wait to hear what you all make of this!!
[I think I audibly cheered the first time I saw this moment – hooray! Amanda finally, in her own unique way, finally let Francine have it!!! I don’t care why Francine does what she does.. she shouldn’t treat Amanda the way she does and it’s not okay!]
Rather appropriate that Francine would be a witch.. given this show has a wizard of oz theme going.. Hmm so deep down.. will Francine be the good witch? or is she really the bad witch? or heck.. maybe she’s both?!
Francine reacts a bit stunned but stunted..
Francine: A what?
Amanda: Oh, I’m sorry…
[Love how she is giggling as she says this.. Not really sorry! *don’t mention the nose job! don’t mention the nose job!]
…I’m really- That was stupid, [no it was genius!] I mean, that’s a great apology, isn’t it? I’m really sorry-
Francine : –Amanda…
Amanda: I didn’t mean to- I’m sorry, I’ll never do it again.
Francine (interrupts): Aman-
Amanda (over Francine): -Are you kidding me-
Francine (interrupts): -Amanda, will you please shut up?
Francine : I would rather have air than apologies.
Amanda nods and whispers: You’re right. I’m sorry, I’m a motor-mouth, I talk when I get scared.
Amanda motions like she won’t talk anymore..
or.. at least.. she’ll try not to!
Francine slowly grins.. and sneaks a look at Amanda..
Francine: You know what I do when I get scared?
Rofl! The way Amanda’s eyes light up when she hears this!
Like Wha?! Francine’s going to talk to me like she is a normal human being?
Like I’m a normal human being??!!! Whoo hoo!!
Amanda looks attentively at Francine.
Francine: I eat chocolates.
[This ‘you??!!’ from Amanda was always curious to me.. why not Francine? Hmm maybe Amanda thought Francine bit the head off live birds or something.. I guess this is a whole ‘guilty secrets’ thing going on here.. but still.. I don’t see why Francine would be a shock to eat chocolate. I mean it’s not like it’s bad quality stuff only..]
Francine: Truffles, bonbons, éclairs, kisses… [I think kisses are pretty poor quality! very low cocoa and full of additives, I’d have Francine pegged as a high cocoa girl.. or handmade high quality..uh oh.. I’m the same!!! eek!! what does it mean?!!] —anything I can get my hands on. I love chocolate. [Anything huh.. so in chocolates Francine slums it!]
Francine: I kinda like this place, you know. In a place like this, you cannot score an éclair anywhere.
…I like hot fudge sundaes with the extra hot fudge.
Oh hang on.. if we’re gonna do this.. I’ve gotta be eating chocolate.. Got it… Num. Nummmmmm.
Francine: Oh, yeah…
…chocolate dipped strawberries.
Amanda: Chocolate cheesecake.
Francine: Double chocolate brownies.
Amanda: Chocolate-covered raisins.
Francine: Ohhh… chocolate Easter bunnies.
Amanda: Chocolate Easter bunnies with marshmallow on the inside.
Francine and Amanda both giggle away together..
Ahhh nothing like a lack of oxygen and chocolate to bring two women together!
– Francine looks at Amanda
Francine looks away.. sobering a little..
Francine flatly: This isn’t funny.
Amanda (shaking her head, still smiling): We’re in a lotta trouble.
[It’s hilarious how Amanda says this!!.. and she’s still laughing! Yup.. lots of trouble!!]
This seems to set Francine off again. ha!
I suspect a little of this is also, we’re laughing together? we must be in really serious trouble!! you know?
So come on everyone.. which chocolate they mention is your favourite? I’m going to vote for chocolate covered strawberries.. Mmmm…
One thing and I’ll finish up with this post.
Whenever I watch this scene, I am relieved to see that Lee doesn’t come up as a topic of conversation here – as both women are light headed and could have said something that they would genuinely, deeply, really regret! I’m very glad Amanda didn’t talk about Lee to Francine! phew! ?Anyone else think this??
Can’t wait to hear what you all make of this!! byeee for now!!
