Billy’s final words to Lee are ringing in our ears..
Billy: Lee, see what you can dig up on the street. Be careful, be quick. Blueprints, chemical weapons, mercenaries — whatever it all means, we’ve got to stop it. [whooooo!]
Next thing Lee abruptly opens the door to the Q Bureau/ Film Library..
He sees Amanda sitting at his desk playing chess.
Hey – we have a new addition.. Lee now has a fridge in the Q bureau! Come on Lee.. get Amanda her own desk already.. and while you’re at it – get rid of that guest pass!!
(man I want that job.. sitting at Lee’s desk? no.. I mean a job where I can play chess all day What am I saying??!!! yes.. all day with Lee would be a perk!)
Amanda: Did you know your fern has scales?
Lee: I don’t have time to worry about my fern, Amanda…
(Lee hurries over to his desk and motions for Amanda to get out of his chair..)
…Out — out, out out.
Is it just me or is the view out the window really different?? It’s been ages since we saw the Q bureau- I’ve missed it!
Lee: I’ve got to clear my calendar and get out in the field. Ah-
(Lee tries to sit as his desk but there’s a chess set in the way.)
Amanda: Here, I’m sorry.
Lee: Yeah, thank you.
LOL I love it, Amanda doesn’t take it personally, she just goes and sits on his desk instead so comfortable and confident together now
Amanda clears off the chess set, and Lee gets his appointment book out..
Amanda: Okay. I’ll help you with it.
Looks to me like Lee goes to put it on his desk, but instead Amanda reaches for it and takes it from him to look.. lol Lee doesn’t seem to mind! Such an old married couple thing to do!
Amanda: Alright, let’s see —
Lee: What’s today?
Amanda: Today, you have — Polish embassy at 10:00.
Lee: That’s a dance lesson, I can skip that.
Amanda: Skipped. Ah — you have lunch with Kelso at noon. [Do we know who Kelso is?]
Lee: Ah, forget that, he won’t show.
Amanda: Well, I’ll call him just to be polite.
Lee: He won’t show, Amanda, he was deported last week. [rofl! Umm guess we don’t need to know who Kelso is! ]
Amanda: Skip that one!
Amanda: You have Birchwood at 1:00.
Lee: Oh, yeah. Well, I’ve gotta go there. I missed last week.
Amanda: What’s Birchwood?
Lee looks up at Amanda..
and responds: That’s the future, Amanda….
…If we’re lucky.
Well.. Lee using the word ‘Future’ , smiling at Amanda like that and saying if ‘we’ are lucky (rather than if you and I are lucky) is very swoony!!!
Whoooo what’s a Birchwood?! This is going to be instructive!! Okay guys I best finish up here for the moment.. keepin it short and sweet as I’m too busy for my liking and want to keep the walk at least crawling along at a snail’s pace here
Can’t wait to hear from you!!
