Amanda is reunited with her mother and Zernoff.
Amanda: Are you all right? Oh Mother!
Dotty: How did you find us?
Amanda: Well the Mr Marshmallow sign’s right next door.
Zernoff: You called the police?
Amanda: Not exactly.
Dotty: What do you mean Not Exactly???
[LOL.. there it is again – not exactly!]
Amanda: Well, I did call the authorities,..
[Love it! Amanda doesn’t lie here.. she didn’t call the police, she did call the authorities.. the agency!]
…but look I didn’t even know where I was going until I-
(Amanda pauses to listen to a whirring sound)
Zernoff: Ah, they are taking down the walls of this place….
(At hearing this, without a word Amanda walks over to the other side of the room while Zernoff and Dotty continue talking)
…It is not all what it seems.
Dotty: It’s a hoax Amanda, the whole thing’s a hoax. The police car, the debriefing centre-
Zernoff: All because of me, They want the information I gave to your government.
(Dotty and Zernoff watch Amanda.. they seem to be a little unsure of how she’s taking this!)
(We cut to Amanda who is frantically checking out a mirror on the other side of the room. )
We cut back to Dotty and Zernoff.. [now even more concerned at Amanda’s bizarre behaviour.. lol!! too funny!]
LOL!!! Dotty and Zernoff share a look..
[Hilarious!! to us Amanda is trying to scope the place and figure out what to do.. To Dotty and Zernoff, Amanda is losing the plot!]
Dotty (to Zernoff quietly): I uh,…
…I think she’s overwhelmed.
We cut back to Amanda who is not paying any attention to them at all haaaa..
Amanda turns and dumps the contents of her purse on the table and without looking at them she says: We have to get out of here.
Cutting back to Dotty and Zernoff.. they are completely baffled at her behaviour. [I think they think Amanda is psychotic here in response to this scary situation!]
Amanda finds something green in her bag.. a green string or rope? [I’m not sure what is yet.. I’ll stay tuned!]
Dotty and Zernoff are watching Amanda intensely.
Kurtz: They’ll be finished in about an hour or so.
[come on Leeeeeee!!! You’ve got an hour or less before the freezer activates I mean before the baddies kill everyone!]
Lawrence: We can’t risk being seen leaving here with Zernoff and the woman. [Um there are two women there now no? you guys forgotten about Amanda already?!]
Kurtz: Luckily, Aero North leads the defence industry in the application of exotic toxins…
[I soooo couldn’t make out what Kurtz was saying here!!! thanks soooooo much to Karyn for transcribing this episode!!!!]
(Kurtz holds up one of those weird darts he was using earlier)
(He tosses it to Lawrence – who catches it looking a bit terrified)
…Don’t stick yourself!… [Oh do! please do!]
……It’s poison, it leaves no trace…
[I think Kurtz is messing with Lawrence’s head here.. ahhhh one baddie being nasty to another? I have no sympathy for Lawrence!]
…Dump the bodies in Maryland and let the cops scratch their heads.
(Kurtz holds his hand out to Lawrence for him to give him back the dart)
[ lol.. shame Lawrence didn’t stick him with it!]
(Lawrence hands it back very carefully.. and Kurtz has a chuckle to himself)
[It’s almost like this is a little power play here.. Kurtz is the dominant and Lawrence is the submissive.. and he’s just been reminded of that.. i. e. when it comes to violence, Lawrence is probably a bit of a wimp. -Amanda can take him!!!! – keep in mind please, I have not watched ahead and have no idea what happens so if I sound silly that’s why ha! ]
Cut to the Agency.. Lee has just arrived at Billy’s office and is filling him in on where things are up to.
Lee: I spent half the night staked out a North’s place…nothing…
[rofl!!! that’s hilarious!!! In the last scene with Amanda, Leee said he wanted to stake out Lawrence’s place because “he’s the key to this”! You forget that scarecrow?!]Oopsie..]
…So I went to pick up Amanda, she was gone so I figured she came here.
Billy: You don’t suppose she went out to look for them on her own?
Lee: Nah, she knows better than that-
(Lee stops short thinking to himself)
…Damn, I hope she didn’t!…
….With her luck she’d probably find them!
Good call!!!! Ahhh SMK this is genius! I love it when SMK has a laugh at itself It deserves it tee hee..
Such an understated little moment.. but huge for fans who know the show well huh!!!
There’s a knock at the door..
Billy: Come in.
We see Francine in THAT sweater enter, followed by the message taking agent..
Francine introduces her: Officer Harmon….
[Harmon?? is that a pun?? cos she was ‘Harmon’ the chance of rescue for Amanda, Dotty and Zernoff??!! And why is she ‘officer’ she has an agency ID.. do Military get agency ID’s? and if she’s military why is she not in uniform?! ]
(to Harmon) …Go ahead, tell them.
Harmon: Well a message came in for Mr. Stetson early this morning from Amanda?
Lee: Why didn’t you tell me??
Harmon: Well, I am. It wasn’t a priority.
Lee: ‘Amanda’ is a clearance code all its own…
[I’m sorry.. where was I? feeling very light headed here]
…Any more calls like this you handle Priority One understood?
[Pha! I’m surprised Lee lets her continue to answer phones! she’s a menace to Amanda! get her out of here! rofl.. I’m kidding!! But.. I am wondering where Jill has gone, it’s been a while.. she never would have done that to Amanda! ]
[I like to watch this dialogue of Lee’s being delivered three times.. once watching Lee.. once watching Francine and once watching Billy!]
Billy seems to have a bit of a ‘Hmm! this is very interesting!!!’ kind of reaction to this line of Lee’s.. While Francine looks at Billy with a bit of an ‘ugh’ attitude..
I’m not sure if this is – ‘Amanda is priority 1? Ugh!!’
or.. ‘I can’t believe she didn’t pass on this message Ugh!!’
I use to think the former, but now I lean toward the latter – because Francine had already identified that Lee would really really want this information.. and that this was a mistake.. What do you think?
Then again, maybe her ugh is in reaction to Billy’s taking note and enjoying this little moment of declaration from Lee here..
Yeah.. I think that can work..
Umm what do you guys think?
Harmon: Yes Sir.
Harmon is suitably chastened at not knowing of the existence of the word which equals priority one: ‘Amanda’!
[I’d like to say ‘no Harmon done’ Harmon.. but that may not be true!!]
Harmon exits.. and Lee hands Billy the message.
Billy: Mr. Marshmallow.
Francine: I don’t know about that part but in reference to the warehouse I know that Aero North has a warehouse in Alexandria. They store old equipment there.
[I think it says something that Francine has already looked into this.. she knew if it was Amanda, to look into it – no matter how ridiculous the message – that’s interesting!!! why do you think that is?]
Oh my.. intense Lee.. hands on his hips.. wearing jeans..
I’m sorry was someone just saying something??!!!!
Hang on… I think Billy said something blah blah rah rah..
I’ll rewind it..
Oh yeah, Billy said: And if I’m not mistaken the North-eastern Candy Company makes Mr. Marshmallow in Alexandria!…
[Billy knows this?!]
They all head for the door in a hurry.. on to Alexandria!
I best pause here for the moment everyone – can’t wait to hear from ya!!!! Thanks for stopping by and reading..byeee for now!
