Back to Amanda’s and we see she’s viewing the TV coverage of the tournament.
LOL at the feet behind the commentator’s head! haa!
TV Host: So, coming up live from the beautiful Shenandoah Pro Am Tennis Tournament semi-final competition…
[Amanda’s looking much better.. sitting up.. checking her watch.. and looking alert and.. IMHO bored to be home and not working!]
…As you may already know, the Tina Tomerson / Mary Dexter grudge match was cancelled because of Mary’s illness, Tina then became heir to an unchallenged placement in the semi-finals…
At hearing this, a thought seems to strike Amanda.
…So in a matter of minutes, audiences around the world are going to have an opportunity—
Amanda picks up the phone.. Audiences around the world huh.. gee sounds like quite a statement if they take out Tina in front of the world.. but ahem. maybe this is so obvious it’s not right?
We find Tina all set to go with her match walking through the hotel foyer – hmm where’s her bodyguard? oh wait.. that’s right she’s on a plane to Hawaii – soooo no one is replacing her? ohh whatev. Tina finds Francine. Whooo nice tie in seeing Francine watching the same commentator as Amanda!
Tina: Look at me, I’m shaking. I’m like this before every match.
Francine: Don’t worry about it, you’ll be great. You’ll ace the quarter finals. [der Francine, you were just watching the tv commentator say she is in the semi’s!!!]
Tina: Quarter finals? I’m in the semis – I got bumped up.
[Oh right.. we needed another reminder – Mary’s poisoning means Tina is in the semi’s.. we’ve heard it twice in less than a minute- smk code for: this means something dumb audience!]
Tony: Let’s go Tina, you’re on court in about 5 minutes.
[Seems Lee and Francine aren’t the only duo who are no longer pretending they don’t know each other ]
Francine: Good luck.
Lee makes his way through the foyer toward Francine as we hear the commentator (or loudspeaker?) yet again tell us that audiences around the world will be watching Tina.. and.. Karen Troneum?? I heard Karen.. but the tv show said it was Fran. Hmm.. let’s see what happens.
Lee is still on edge.. his spy instincts are screaming something’s not right.
Lee: I may be paranoid but this thing isn’t over. Now you keep an eye on them, I’m going to check the grounds. Go on.
Francine: All right.
Francine leaves.. and right on cue we hear:
Announcer: Telephone call for Lee Stanton. Lee Stanton please pick up house phone.
Oh phew.. not an additional name for Lee this ep!
Lee: Yeah, Lee Stanton.
Amanda: Lee, it’s me. Listen, I’ve been watching everything and everyone on the television set and I think I’ve got the whole thing figured out.
[If it were anyone else we’d say yeah right!! but.. Amanda probably has lol]
Lee: Slow down, slow down. Now what is it you’re trying to say Amanda?
[LOL actually I didn’t think she was talking as fast as she usually does haaa.. but I love that she doesn’t have to tell him who she is.. and she doesn’t even bother to say hello haa. Plus, I love that in this urgent moment, Lee doesn’t mind Amanda’s interruption. ]
Amanda: Okay, look it’s really very simple but it’s not so simple when you take everything into consideration.
[lol very Amanda.. very simple! I’ve missed Amanda ]
Lee: Uh huh, okay, now— what are you talking about? [okay some annoyance here no?! just a tiny bit?!]
Amanda: The point is, I think Tina’s still the target and I think I know why.
Lee is listening intently.. It’s evident he believes Amanda has lots to contribute that he’s gonna want to hear
I guess before they changed the script they could have had Amanda figure this all out without the tv no?
Anyway.. we cut away from Lee – not sure what Amanda’s figured out. I figure it’s about that world audience we keep hearing about..
We cut to a hand holding a mini TV and keeping track of the tennis coverage.
TV Announcer: What promises to be a most exciting match for the Women’s Championship is about to get underway between Tina Tomerson and Tracy Austin on centre court. Both players have worked their way into the final after a week worth of… (fade out)
Oh Rofl! this is seriously lame! Firstly, before Amanda called Lee, Tina was about to play in the semi finals – we heard that twice! And now the announcer is saying they’re playing for the championship???!!!! and are in the final???!!!! Oh come on SMK!!!
And.. before Tina was playing Fran Troneum or Karen Troneum.. but definitely not Tracy Austin!
See the board? Nooooo Tracy Austin on the board at all! whahahahaaa. Magic.. Now she’s playing Tracy Austin??!!!
Well, cue the evil action theme.. this baddie has moved the space/time continuum ahead to really make sure that Tina Tomerson was in the finals! whahahaa..
The baddie with very feminine hands is loading some missiles onto that flying thingy I guess we saw when the episode opened..Ohhh looky.. Aloha Donna!
She’s back!! And this military flyer means business!!
You know how I know??
Black helmet? Check!
[Not dark helmet I wish!]
Black overalls? Check!
Music reaching a ridiculous intensity as she takes off? Check!
I gotta say it’s hard to feel threatened by a thing with bicycle wheels and a little fan blowing it.. lol..
Still.. now’s a good moment to pause.. Can’t wait to hear from you all byeeee!!
