Hi everyone! Before we jump into The Eyes Have It – I’d like to pause for a little moment of SMK Whimsy… Here’s a little celebration of SMK Pick up Lines (so far) they’re in random order.. and by no means a complete list! Okay.. I confess – some of the pick up lines may not strictly meet the definition of a pick up line.. but it’s all in good fun and I’ve gone for it!
To save time, I haven’t identified the episode.. or at times, the context. So if you can’t recall the moment- feel free to ask here and I’m sure someone here will be able to jog your memory! Goodness knows with all these swoony moments it can be hard to remember
Lee (softly): “Yeah, but ‘okay’…isn’t good enough for you.”
Lots of pick up lines in J.Edgar’s ghost!
Lee: “Well, that’s why they call it Happy Hour, Amanda…Come on, get in the mood.”
[I think this is a general flirty challenge on Lee’s part]
Amanda: “You can look but don’t touch… [Amanda shows Lee his photo] … This is freeeeee! It’s the negative that’s gonna cost ya!…
…I think we’ll probably start with dinner at Spencer’s…and we’ll take it from there! ”
Ahhh Craiger.. the serial pick up liner user!
Craiger (to Amanda): “Hi.. Everybody calls me Craiger.. I uh, saw you come in,……umm… We’ve met somewhere. No, no, no, no. I, I remember, it was, uh, Senator Bacon’s cocktail party…at the reception for Joan Sutherland at the, uh, Kennedy?…Uhh…
… Uh, oh, I got it! The champagne brunch after the BMW rally. Maybe we, uh… Maybe it was in our, er, distant past. I went to, uh, law school at-…..Maybe it was in the cafeteria at the Department of…
(to a new woman): Hi. You, you look familiar to me, too…”
Marvin: “You know, I don’ t think there’s a prettier sight anywhere… than a full moon over the Marvin’s plant.”
[Yes I think this was a disguised pick up.. he was IMHO seeing if Amanda was interested]
Alan Chinberlain: (to Amanda) “excuse me, miss. I was just.. uh.. I was wondering if maybe we could walk for a while and talk if you have the time….It might help us both recover from that near miss.”
[smooth. Okay it’s a moment later where he asks her out.. but this image is way better]
Amanda says she still feels a little cold after her run in with the freezer, Lee responds: “Ah, well, you know something?…I’ve got just the cure for that…… it’s gonna take some time…… and dinner…… and a very special bottle of wine.”
I think this whole sequence next is one big pick up!
Lee: “…Now a professional, trained agent plans every detail, every nuance……The word “accident” does not enter into his vocabulary…
– it takes technique…Look. For instance,…
…uh I’m sitting right here on this park bench. Now –… your assignment……is to make……a casual and natural contact, establish a relationship with me…… and then get me to ask you to the Kennedy tonight……for a Verdi festival…
[Lee gives Amanda a lesson in the pick up!]
…. Look.. you sit, and I’ll show you… Hey Toots!!!
How’re you doing?….Heard any good opera lately?…
…Well, what do you say we ahh hit the Kennedy later for a little Verdi?..
…Ooh, Gee, that’s…that’s too bad…[he gets out the tickets]
…These were for tonight. Hmmm….
… About 8?…
[A successful pick up! ]
… See how easy that was?!”
Lee: “You’re still cold huh?…
…..Look, here, let’s huddle closer.. Let our body heat warm us up huh?! … How’s that?
Amanda: Oh that’s much better, thank you.
Lee: you sure you’re okay now?
Amanda: yeah, that’s much better.
this whole sequence could be a lovely pick up
Lee: And she has a very special daughter too.
Lee: “…she (Penny) asked me to give you something. Personally…
…She made me promise.”
doh! without the interruption.. this would have been a successful pick up
David: “Now, no prompting. It was Paris, spring of ’81, or Athens, ’82, you were wearing your bright red dress. Or I guess it was just last week at the plain, old Agency, you were standing next to plain, old Lee Stetson.”
[I think Lee is no man’s wingman.. especially when the pick up line is aimed at Amanda!]
Part 2 will be coming up next!!!! At the end of part 2 please share any that we’ve missed.. I’m sure there will be loads more Anyone like to share which of these is their favourite pick up moment? or pick up line?? and why? byeee!
