Thanks Learjet for the fun stroll through Amanda’s fashions! I’ve been missing seeing Amanda in playing for keeps – so it was nice to focus on her for a bit!
Anyway.. Back to Playing for Keeps!
So we left Lee checking on his massive computer in his car. LOL.. the name of two hotel guests has been flagged by the agency…
We find Lee joining Francine down by courtside of Tina and Mary’s tennis match… Looks like Mary is getting sicker.
Yes there’s nothing suspicious about how Francine specifically walks over and sits in front of Lee.. lol.. I guess most people are watching the tennis.. and if the body guard can’t noticed Tina’s water being switched right in front of her.. maybe she won’t notice this!
Francine: Come up with anything?
Lee: Looks like I’m not the only one who’s interested in the guest list. I found this bug in Tina’s room…
…It was hanging in the curtain….
[Ummm lol at Francine’s view!]
…And I ran the list of newly registered guests through the Agency, Two very interesting names popped up – Dieter Gerhardt and Tony Maskell…
…Now look all the way to your right. See the two guys down by the end of the bleachers? The one standing is Gerhardt,… [the one posing more like! Fabio!!]
… the other’s Maskell…
…Now Gerhardt is still on the tour and has an interesting habit of competing in cities just before some political turmoil. Maskell has an axe to grind with Tina’s father – seems the old man accused him of being a court hustler and a womaniser…
[With that haircut?! never!!! 😉 ]
…Then he about lost all of his sponsors.
[Get out of here.. these days that might gain you a few sponsors!]
Finally – We see Mary collapse.. everyone rushes to help her.. Well not scorpion dude, he’s having a drink. lol
Whooo cue evil close up on Baddie!!! muahahahaah.
Next thing we see Francine down by the ambulance and Lee joins her there.
Lee: She’s comatose and running a high fever. There’s no diagnosis yet.
Francine: It couldn’t have been the tennis, Lee. It’s not hot, she’s in good shape and she wasn’t playing that hard.
Lee: Well, while they were drawing Mary’s blood for pathology, I lifted this off the nurse’s tray….
…They won’t miss a little but I want the Agency boys to take a look at it okay?
[Wait a minute.. did Lee just say what I think he just said???!!! whahahahahaaa!! He stole a sample of Mary’s blood??!!! this is too funny!!! They won’t miss a little?? whahahaa!!!]
(Lee gives the vial to Francine)
[– for the lab boys.. grr still no women working in the agency lab huh! I don’t know how BB said this line about the nurse not missing it with a straight face – BB we salute you! oh and how did MS hear it without sniggering??!!! MS we salute you too!]
Lee and Francine start walking and talking..err what happened to you not knowing each other? oh whatev.
Francine: I know exactly what you’re thinking – if there was any foul play involved it could have been meant for Tina not Mary.
[Yeah.. you know what he’s thinking because it’s bleeding obvious!]
Lee: Speaking of Tina, why don’t you go back to the pool and keep an eye on her. I’ll get back to you as soon as I check in with Billy.
Francine: All right.
(Francine does what she’s told and leaves)
Hmm.. seems Lee is in charge of this operation! At least the whole competitive thing has eased off now things have gotten serious…I guess..
Lee sees Donna Clayton approaching..and fixes his polyester jacket.. is this Lee finding Donna attractive? are we suppose to wonder?
Donna sees Lee..
Donna Clayton: Hey, could I have a word with you?
Lee: Yeah, of course. Oh, what happened? Did Tina change her mind about talking to me?
Donna: Cut the garbage. I’ve been Tina’s bodyguard for long enough to know that if she suspects someone of being a government guardian, she’s usually right.
Lee: Government guardian? C’mon, I manage athletes, that’s all.
[Whooo hooo! Lee has on his stunt tie!]
Donna: Oh, come on cowboy,… [lol is that an in joke aimed at BB?? or just an smk insult? I guess we’ll have to see what KC makes of it in her post! ]
…I don’t have much time. There’s a Tony Maskell’s been sneaking around our suite. Following us wherever we go. I don’t like the looks of it. I think we should work together.
Lee: You and me work together, huh?
Donna: That’s right.
Lee: Okay, I’ll tell you what. You get her to sign with me and I will make sure you win the washer/dryer combo at the big press raffle… [That I’d like to see! ]
…What do you think about that, huh?
Donna doesn’t dignify it with a response.. she just glares at Lee and walks away wordlessly..
phew.. glad to see there was no attempt to buy Donna a drink or charm her.. There’s a part of me that is wanting to see that the old Lee is long gone you know? and very happy to see evidence old Lee is gone!
Lee calls after her: It’s a sure thing, huh?
I do believe Lee is getting back into the swing of playing his cover!
Moving on we see Francine walking somewhere.. she walks past Tracy Austin..
Tracy Austin: Francine Dutton! How are you?…
…It’s Tracy Austin… [Hey! In case you missed it first time – this is Tracy Austin!!!! ]
…This feels like old home week. I just saw Lee Gorvandeljec down at the court.
Francine: Lee Gorvandeljec? Do I know him?
[lol.. no hello Tracy huh..]
Tracy Austin: Sure, you remember. Budapest. You got your dress caught in the door…
[I’m so impressed by Tracy Austin.. she does a great job! No wonder they gave her two cameos!]
… You had to run until they got rid of that guy.
[So Lee and Francine were both in Hungary the same time? Francine was running from a man?! do tell!]
Francine: That’s right. What was that all about?
Tracy Austin: Lee just told me. He’s married!
[Ah so we are talking about the same incident with the Italian ambassador and the smoke huh..]
Francine (totally over the top): He is?!…
…Why that sneak, I’ve gotta tell Chrissy.
Without another word, Francine turns and walks away.. lol.. no hello Tracy or goodbye Tracy.. Poor Tracy!
She watches on confused at these weird people she remembers from a weird experience in Budapest!
LOL the guy she was talking with just laughs at Tracy!
I guess ‘Chrissy’ is Chris Evert huh.. lol..
Vidders could have a ton of fun with this line of Francine’s responding to Lee being married That’s all I’ll say for now!!!!! –Iwsod zips mouth!- dooo dee dooo doo…
And.. I shall pause here for now.. I’ll look forward to you guys sharing your thoughts – does anyone remember when this first aired? Was there a big fuss about Tracy Austin’s cameo? Did you have a tiny question in the back of your mind about how Lee would deal with Donna?? Would you have if this episode had aired before Fast Food for Thought and One Bear Dances..? okay.. bye all!!!
