On to a mansion..
We find Jerry talking to the man with the grey hair from the park. Ah yes.. Jerry – the leak within the leak!
Jerry: They’re after me Mr. North. I’ve been so scared. I didn’t want to tell you this at the office, but I should have come to you before now.
Grey haired man has a name! Oh good!
No baddie phone? oh boooo!
North: Look Jerry, it’s ok. You did the right thing believe me….
…Now just tell me what’s happened so far. Who have you talked to?
[oh noooo Jerry! Don’t tell him anything! gah!!]
Jerry: I called the Agency, no names…and arranged a meeting with Mr. Stetson….
…Except someone else was there. I think he had a gun.
North: But you haven’t really made contact with him yet?
Jerry: Not really, I just threw him the papers. I didn’t have time to explain.
[Aie! Jerry going to be killed? Leak of the leak going to be plugged? permanently?]
North: And they don’t know where the papers came from?..
[North seems more concerned with who Jerry has spoken to and what has been said, rather than the leak! Big red flag there Jerry! gah!!] …Well I’m very concerned about all this. I mean, we have cooperate fully of course. But if somebody in our company has national secret that he shouldn’t have, I want it stopped and I want it stopped now!…
…Ok here’s what you do. Call your contact and arrange an appointment. Just be circumspect on the phone. And after you talk to him you come back to me and we’ll take it from there ok?
[Uh oh.. looks like the plan is kill the leak’s leak and the guy the leak’s leak leaked to! rofl! I think my brain is leaking 😉 ]
Jerry: Yes Sir.. (Jerry leaves)
North gives Jerry a long look..
LOL at the choice of statue behind North! On the surface he is cooperative and supportive of Jerry.. but really, he is at war with him.. North seems adequately creepy and evil – so far not a lame baddie.. though he is a little bland! I do wish he had a baddie phone.. at least he has the baddie refined tastes and a mansion! whoooo!
We cut to Zernoff on the telephone (phew.. he doesn’t have a baddie phone!).
Zernoff: No No No It must be immediately. This afternoon at 2. Yes, Rock Creek Park. I’ll look for you.
(speaks in Russian.. rah rah.. Dasvidanya!)
How does Zernoff know he can get to that park at 2, he knows he is seeing the sights with Dotty.. Hmm maybe he has a plan for that..
We cut to Lee and Francine listening from the stakeout house.
Lee puts a tape in a player and we hear a voice speaking Russian as it runs through a voice analyser.
Francine: It’s a match. It’s Stanislav.
Oh okay. so that machine is a voice print/matching machine. So Zernoff wants to meet with one of the other defectors huh..
[whoooo Lee has his hip holster on and is doing that pose again! oh my.. only this time no dimples ]
Lee: And Zernoff’s desperate to meet him today.
Francine: Think you better check it out.
Lee hands Francine the tape and leaves. I guess Lee was going to follow Zernoff around anyway!
Cut to King house. Amanda finds Dotty packing the goofy picnic basket..
Amanda: Ah geez the boys forgot their lunch!
Dotty: No but they left the basket thank goodness, because Andrei and I are going on a picnic!
[As Dotty responds, Amanda reaches over to grab Dotty’s purse and holds it behind her back. ]
[Hey, I saw Phillip take the basket. Hmm they must have left it somewhere else.. that kinda makes sense- Phillip thought it was goofy and didn’t want to take it – so he found a way to get what he wanted: lunch! but no basket]
Amanda: I thought this was going to be a tour Mother
[eh? is that what Amanda is suppose to call her? why say ‘Dorothea’? I guess Dotty is having a little adventure under her proper name! She’s not Dotty, she’s… Dorothea!]
Dotty: Dorothea, that’s what Andrei calls me. Your father used to call me that when we were especially close…
[close? what do you all think this means?]
…Now where’s my purse?
Amanda: Oh, here it is.
[Amanda holds it up but doesn’t want to hand it over]
Dotty: Oh good. What’s the matter darling is something wrong?…
…You seem very nervous.
Amanda: Ah, well I am a little nervous Mother. I’m a little worried that you might be cold, you know the ground is damp and I think you probably oughta get a blanket.
[Amanda takes the basket and purse off Dotty]
Dotty: Oh, yes that’s a good idea. There’s one in the , uh, laundry room.
[Dotty goes to collect the blanket, leaving her purse with Amanda]
Amanda: good good
Amanda scrambles to put the bug in Dotty’s err Dorothea’s purse. We see a close up of it. Looks like it’s two pieces of paper with the metallic bug sandwiched between them?
Amanda: Did you find it?
Amanda: Oh good.
Dotty: Here we go
Amanda: Oh good Mother. There’s your basket and here’s your purse.
(Amanda holds on to Dotty a moment making her pause)
Amanda: Now Mother, have a wonderful time, and uh, just don’t say anything that you wouldn’t want to see on the front page of the newspaper!
[Rofl! I think this is really: don’t say anything Lee and I wouldn’t want to hear!! gah!!]
Dotty laughs: No, of course not.
Dotty suddenly stops laughing, seeming to realise what Amanda just said – and she gives Amanda a look – lol!
Amanda awkwardly smiles..
knowing she’s just gotten a warning – don’t push it Amanda!!
Amanda shrugs and smiles trying to look innocent
Dotty takes her basket and blanket and leaves Amanda..
rofl love the look on Amanda’s face as Dotty leaves – ohhh this is soooo awkward! [But hilarious!]
She starts rubbing her hands together again.. hopefully things will work out okay! Lee and Amanda will be close by.. and.. fingers crossed Dotty doesn’t say anything too embarrassing After all she doesn’t know much, right?!
Okay everyone. I’ll stop here for the moment.. would love to hear your thoughts! byeee for now!
