We find Lee and Amanda at a Trailer park.
Lee: I know what you’re thinking… [really? you can read Amanda’s mind nowadays Lee?! tee hee.. Oh you’re good!] ……Why are we in a trailer park in the middle of nowhere? Well, Amanda, the answer to your problem: Lance Dorn’s office…
…complete with portable telephones, computer phone modems, the whole works…
[Doesn’t the corvette have that too? I mean when Amanda isn’t sitting in the front seat?! rofl!!]
…Wherever Lance is, he’s working.
… Yo, Lance.
Lance: Hey, Lee…
[rofl at that massive slab of computer that’s possibly trying to pass itself off as a laptop!]
[LOL how Amanda now holds on to Lee’s arm! scary trailer park and scary man!]
(Lee and Amanda approach Lance)
…Lee, my main man, what it is!
Lee: Ah, well, what it is, is it’s fine… [I’ll say!!! Mighty fine!]
… I’d like you to meet Amanda King.
[Amanda looks very pretty here.. Actually she is also looking quite tanned.. you think this ep was the first filmed after a mid season break in production?]
Lee: Amanda’s got a problem.
Lance: Speaking of problems, I cracked the Asian operations covert code this morning. Yuh. Here’s a new patch that’ll fix it.
Lee: Ahhhh…err among other things, Lance’s job is to test our computer security.
Lee: Why don’t you show him the cheque?
Amanda: Oh yes.
Lance: Dig it. I got into the ticket touters’ A-list and scored us front row centre for Chaka Khan…
[ Whahahahaa! Lee is going to Chaka Khan with this guy? eh? To me, Lance seems more like a source than a friend.. Auggie but with a brain and without the humour.. What do you think?]
(Lance lowers his voice a little and gives Amanda a side glance)
[Like this isn’t really for her ears.. but heck. she’s standing right there dopey]
… …And I accessed a new fraternity bulletin board with over a hundred beautiful co-eds at Maryland,…
(We cut to Amanda looking in her purse for her cheque and clearing her throat.. don’t want to be hearing this!!! She hands it to Lance.)
…cross-referenced by hair, eyes, measurements-
[Lee doesn’t seem ‘busted’ here. I’m looking forward to hearing what you all make of this! Is this Lee’s old ways coming back to bite?
I’m not seeing this.. Lee seems to brush off Lance like he doesn’t care – with IMHO no hint that he’s covering his tracks. It’s more like Lance wishes Lee would be his wingman and that they’d be a great team picking up women.. rather than these two actually be peers. Yeah, I think Lance is a source. An asset that Lee keeps happy and humours.. but he isn’t Lee’s friend. what do you think?
Plus I’ll just add that Lance sounds more like a predator than a player.. this whole hacking info about women thing is creepy. Lance, you’re not charming me!!! Maybe in the 80’s this was accepted as funny?? anyone??
Also really tacky to say these things in front of Amanda. Disrespectful with no class.. Boo Lance!]
Amanda hands Lance the cheque.
Lee waves him off: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Uh, Lance, why don’t you look at that, huh?
Lance: You want ideas on how to spend it or what?Amanda: That’s a hundred thousand dollars.
Lance: So you got a good gig.
Lee: Come on, Lance, she’s a fourth level GSA with only a confidential security clearance…. [ and only grrrr a guest pass!!!] …cheque has to be a mistake.
Lance: You’re asking me to cover it up for you?
[rofl! this guy really is Auggie with intellect! Actually I found Auggie more harmless than this guy.. ]
Amanda: I wanna give it back.
Lance: Why don’t you just endorse it over to me?
[Love the sideways glance Amanda gives Lee here – She doesn’t have to say a word – Lee ‘knows what she’s thinking!’
Maybe: my my.. this is quite a ‘friend’ you’ve got here!! not!.. Okay. here Lee squirms a little! Lee never did like Amanda having any contact with Auggie.. I guess with Lance he thought she had to come?]
Lee: Come on, Lance.
Lance: OK, but I’ll need my mainframe.
Amanda: We have to go back to the office?
Lance: Nope, we just have to kick in the generator.
Lance gets up – lol that massive thing really is a laptop! tee hee.. He opens the trailer door and ushers Amanda and Lee in.
Lee gives Lance a little smile as he heads into the trailer.
Amanda: Thank you.
Once their inside Lance opens his fridge..
Lance: How about a cold brewster?
[rofl.. offering Amanda a beer!]
Amanda: No, thank you.
Lee: Ah, no, thanks, Lance.
Amanda: This is a nice setup you have here.
Lance: I’ve got storage space for every dating service on the Eastern Seaboard…
[He really has no filter on that mouth of his. But he seems to be able to talk to women okay so he’s not the computer guy stereotype of the 80’s no? Sounds like he has hacked the dating services too huh.. and is gathering private information about women.. ewww just… ewwww.. ]
…I’ve tried to eliminate all the paper from my life.
…This is what’s left … uh, shopping list, a few hot phone numbers and the Bananagram…
Amanda: No my mother does.
Lance: You ought to give it a shot. The jackpot’s up to 10 grand. I thought I had it, too. Onion soup. But it’s not right.
LOL Lance seems happy to chat… even with a woman he isn’t trying to score with.. I guess this info is important for later.. store this one away iwsod! Onion soup? 10 grand.. who knows what we’ll need to know!
Lee is seen to get more and more impatient. He points at the computer signalling for Lance to get on with it.
Amanda: Oh that’s… Yeah, that’s me.
The screen shows the following:
Lance: Here we go. Your wages were paid to somebody code-named King… [does this mean Amanda gets paid $297.91 umm a week or fortnight?! Oh and hey the date on the cheque was January 1986… this computer says it was 6th of February 1986.. hmm!]
[the assassin truck driver dude? is Code named King? I knew it.. this is all Joe King’s fault!!! err.. Joeking!!]
….and the cheque was mailed to a bank in the Bahamas. You got his money…
…And this is weird. It was drawn on a non-existent account.
Lee: Any idea how or why?
Lance: Somebody made a data entry error or something. Let me play around with it.
Lee: OK, tell you what, you got a pencil? Here. If you find something, call this number…
…OK, thanks a lot, Lance.
Lance keeps his eyes on his computer while Lee goes to leave..but Amanda is on the ball – and wants her cheque back! Lance smiles.. I think he was trying to hang on to it
Amanda: Oh, ah…
…I, kind of…
Lee: Oh, yeah, we-
Amanda: … my cheque.
Lee: We better hold on to that.
Amanda: The cheque, please. Yeah.
Lance:Hasta la bye-bye.
Amanda: Thank you. Thank you.
Lee : I trust you, really.
[lol now that sounds like a line you would give an asset no?! ]
Lee and Amanda exit the trailer and start walking away from it. Amanda: That doesn’t seem very secure.
Lee: Welcome to the future. It’s all in the passwords and security codes.
[SMK sees the future!!! whooooo!!]
Amanda: Hmm. Do you really think he’ll be able to trace the cheque?
…Lance Dorn broke into the Soviet Embassy’s Super Bowl Lottery. I’ll bet he calls you tonight.
Amanda:You gave him my number?
It’s too funny how Amanda says this!
I guess this means Lee thinks Lance is more or less harmless, or.. knowing she knows Lee is enough protection.. or.. whatever Lance throws at her Lee thinks she can handle it.
Now I think about it. Auggie called Amanda at home once too! [In double agent] rofl!
I can see how valuable Lance and his skills would be.. but the thought of him accessing all the information of those women and the dating services is ick.. and someone should be looking out for their privacy and their rights too. I’ll comfort myself that maybe Lance is all talk. Hmmmm.. thoughts everyone?? do tell!!! can’t wait to hear from you!!!!!
