Can I just say – It really bugs me to see the title of this episode with that spelling!! I keep wanting to correct it! grrrr..
Rupert is talking to Amanda and walking her down the garden path (literally and maybe.. figuratively too???).
Rupert: You ever seen “the invasion of the body snatchers”?
Amanda: No. [Me neither!!! How about you?]
Rupert: Well, we’ve got a live performance of it out here. Somebody’s taking people away in the middle of the night! Then they bring ’em back. Now, I talked to some of the people who got taken away. They can’t remember a thing.
LOL most of this conversation looks like this!
Amanda: Mr. Simpson, I really don’t think I understand all of this.
Rupert: Well, of course you don’t. Neither do I. Not yet…
[Finally we get a moment where we can actually see them! ]
…You give me your phone number, and keep in touch.
Amanda: Yes, sir. Ah — happy to do that.
I think Amanda’s not sure what to make of things – but she doesn’t tend to dismiss someone without considering what they’re saying (no matter how crazy they sound). This reminds me of Mr Brand and his wild unlikely story.. Rupert may be very lucky that Lee brought Amanda along this day! She’s just the person he needed to speak to.
Next thing, Lee and Amanda have been reunited.. whooo and they’re loaded up with goodies! [If Lee gets this much food each visit, I think I can safely conclude he doesn’t stop by every week – or he’d be rather overweight and unwell!]
Lee: Amanda, believe me: Lois makes banana bread, Glynis makes peach brandy, and Rupert fabricates stories.
Amanda: But you won’t even listen to the story.
Lee: Because I’ve heard a hundred of them.
[I like to see that, though they are two peas in a pod- they still don’t see eye to eye on everything.. and they can express that! pretty healthy ]
Amanda: But you could hear one more.
Lee: Why? Look, the last time, he told me Jimmy Hoffa was hiding in the bungalow next to him. The guy turned out to be an ex-FBI undercover plumber from east Jersey City.
Amanda: Well, listen, he could be telling the truth this time; you know, he just might be telling the truth.
Lee: Ahhhh.. Yeah…
[Lee seems to be relenting a little?] …Amanda?
Lee: Have some bread.
(Lee hands Amanda all the baskets. lol – Death by goodies!)
Amanda: Ohhhh — alright.
Lee: Thank you!
Lee closes the door.. LOL they’re having a heated discussion.. but they’re still polite!
Okay, gotta stop here.. JWWM at a snail’s pace is the new title of this blog rofl! can’t wait to hear from ya! byeeee!
