Where were we.. Lee regained consciousness and is still in hospital.. the Barnstorm list (a list of Lee’s civilian eyes and ears he has gathered for the last ten years) on his contact lenses are now missing..
Soooo it’s time to find out who took the contact lenses.. and meet the big baddie. The scene opens with a close up on a fancy pinkie ring – on a man? sure sign he’s a baddie!
Brody: What is it?
Ha! Sooo it’s Dr Goldberg huh.. lol now I think about it I guess it had to be the first doctor to look at him – he was a baddie or an incompetent!
Dr Goldberg: It’s a contact lens. I took it off an agent named Stetson. His chart said he had 20/20 vision so I became suspicious. Have a look at it in the sun…
[The baddie takes it over to the window]
… It’s covered with some sort of a list applied to the plastic with a photo process.
[I thought you had to keep plastic lenses moist.. what do I know]
Baddie: I can’t read it.
[you need contact lenses dude?! haaaaa]
Dr Goldberg: You need a microscope. I had a quick look. It says something about Barnstorm.
[someone bothered with a title when it’s so much information on tiny contact lenses? that’s funny!]
Baddie: Barnstorm? Very good, doctor. I told you one day something I could use would fall into your lap.
[Poor Lee.. Lee and doctors don’t go together.. a bit like Amanda and computers!]
Dr Goldberg: You’re a good judge of character.
[Character? lol.. yep he can spot a weak character!]
Baddie: Not necessarily. I just try harder…until I find the right person and the right weak spot. You and yours were perfect.
[Oh yawn.. someone who has been corrupted by a baddie.. ho hum]
Dr Goldberg: Worth the papers you borrow from my clinic?
Baddie: Possibly. If it really is Barnstorm then the DEA will never have to hear about all those nasty prescriptions you wrote.
I’ve got no sympathy for Dr Goldberg.. I couldn’t care less what the DEA finds out But.. how does this baddie know what ‘barnstorm’ even means? Hm.. we shall ‘see’ I guess!
How many eye or visions puns can we squeeze into a walk through an episode?!
Moving on.. and we watch Billy’s car driving along a freeway.. He pulls up at a garage and he and Amanda get out.
Amanda: Well sir, thank you very much for the lift. I certainly appreciate it. How long do you think they’ll have to keep my car?
Billy: A few days.
Billy: So you can stay at home and out of trouble.
[As if! Lee needs Amanda’s help! Billy’s an optimist.]
Amanda: Yes sir. What about Lee?
[Love how Amanda doesn’t argue with Billy about staying at home, she just skips that part!]
Billy: He’ll be fine, Amanda. All he needs now is rest and lots of it.
[Ugh.. Lee won’t rest while his ‘family’ is in danger!!]
Amanda: Yes, sir, but you know he won’t stay put.
Billy: Why don’t you stay with him? I’ll hold you responsible for keeping him there.
Amanda: Yes, sir, I’ll do that if you’d like for me to. Thank you, sir.
[Well.. at least she got out of staying at home – ugh!]
Why no mention from Billy about doing anything to find the list?!
Billy gets back in the car.. Amanda walks toward the other side of the garage and we hear Billy’s car drive off.
Amanda finds Leatherneck sitting at a desk, headphones in his ears bopping away.. lol..
Amanda disconnects his headphones so he is aware of her presence.
Amanda: Hello, Leatherneck .
Leatherneck: Hi, Mrs King, how are you?
Amanda: Mr Melrose said you could fix me up with a loaner car while mine’s being repaired.
Leatherneck: What did you do, try to drive that wagon through a house?
Amanda: No, it went through a bus thing.
[Amanda motions with her hands. she’s good at being discreet.. she is very understated here and doesn’t even tell Leatherneck that technically she wasn’t driving rofl. then again neither was Lee 😉 ]
Leatherneck: I was close.
Leatherneck: I was gonna ask you: when did you get your door blown off?
[Oh my gosh.. what is that hideous top he is wearing??!!!!!!]
Amanda: The door was last year… [Did we see that? anyone?] …How did you know? I didn’t even bring it here to be fixed.
Leatherneck: Your car told me.
[Leatherneck gets up out of his seat.]
Amanda: I see.
We cut to a wide shot.. Brace yourselves everyone.. this may hurt your ‘eyes’!!!
Just what the heck is Leatherneck wearing??!!!!!! Was that ever in fashion? Nooooo!!!
Leatherneck: I can run my hand over a car and tell you just what it’s been through, all the pain, bullet wounds, flame throwers, you name it….
[And yet… you can’t dress yourself! ] …Here. we got you one right over here. If I can get the key. Do you like the colour?
Amanda: Not much.
Leatherneck: It’s kind of like a Purple Heart but all over. But I’ll tell you something: this baby’s got more fibreglass in it than your partner’s fancy sports car.
[He just referred to her partner?! Oh my.. it’s all over IFF now is it- how fabulous!! And errr Amanda needs the station wagon updated with fibreglass please while it’s there Leatherneck!]
Leatherneck: Here you go. Let me find the key here. Here you go.
[Leatherneck hands Amanda the keys. I think the key ring has a rabbit’s foot or something on it – you know for luck?]
Amanda: Oh I’m gonna need that huh?
[Amanda is referring to the good luck charm on the key ring here – is it a rabbit’s foot? anyone?]
Amanda: Oh. Nice.
[LOL Amanda is trying to convince herself this car is okay I think.. she tries to start it and Leatherneck gives the hood a good thump. It starts up.. lol shall we call it Thumper?! – that covers the rabbit foot too haaaaa]
Leatherneck: You gotta get its attention.
Amanda: Thank you.
[So polite! Thanks for the piece of crap!]
Amanda tries to drive off.. it squeals a little and has a bit of a false start.. Is thumper hopping?!
The scene ends here..
Okay guys.. I vote for Leatherneck’s outfit here to be the worst SMK outfit EVERRRRRR!!!!!!!! My eyes hurt!
