So it’s Sunday! Lee and Amanda are off to solve this riddle! Oh boy.. after last night, it must be hard to work together and not let it affect their work. I can’t wait to see how they go!
I see they arrived in different cars.. do you think that’s significant? lol I’ll read into it that it is!
Lee: This condo complex is the only place using paper with that watermark.
That’s Jango Hart.
Lee and Amanda enter..
Amanda has Lee’s arm? Are they going for a cover ID here?
Lee gets the chair for Amanda as they join Jango.
Amanda: Thank you.
Amanda: Thank you so much.
(to Jango) Hello.
Jango: What would you folks like to hear?
(Lee gets his ID from his inside pocket, Amanda gets her ID from the briefcase pocket..)
[Amanda gets her ID?! hmm probably not a real one ]
Lee: How about, I’ve got your number. [Hey! Wrong Number!] …IRS – we’ve got some questions.
Eh? So this is a professional cover- what was with the entrance that was like a couple?? I find it hard to imagine they would be very coupley after last night.. but.. maybe I’m wrong?!
Whooo maybe it was to put Jango off guard, so they could get close enough to flash their badges.
Jango: Oh no no, my lawyer told me to never ever answer any questions unless he and my accountant were present.
Amanda: Well, I suppose we’ll have to subpoena his bank records.
Lee: We’re forced to.
[Amanda and Lee seem to be working well here as a professional team.. no sign of friction.. and Amanda seems much more professional at playing this cover than the last time.. I’m guessing that was reach for the sky –It was Lee Stimpson, auditor for the Federal Board of Bank Examiners and his associate Mrs. Keene…” Amanda’s doing even better now! ]
Jango: Um… maybe I could answer just one or two little questions.
[Is it just me or is Jango a terrible over actor?! This actor has gone on to a long career.. but…? Hmm it could be he is trying to be funny.. but I’m not finding it funny..]
Amanda: Oh well, that would be very helpful….
(Amanda pulls out the photo of Will Towne.)
[Oh my.. the moment she does…
Lee’s smile disappears.. and he glares at her!]
…Could you tell us how long you’ve known this gentleman?
Jango: Well, I wouldn’t exactly call him a gentleman…
…He bought a condo here a couple of months ago…
[Grrrr that tension is IMHO back again!!! do you see it too??]
— don’t think I should talk about him without my lawyer.
Lee: Oh, look at this.
Amanda: Oh dear me, undeclared income – nasty stuff.
[I love that that tension doesn’t prevent them from doing their thing.. and lol I love to see Amanda playing this fully – tension or not.. she’s on it!]
Jango: Wait, just a— I’ll co-operate – wait…
…Okay, please, do me a favour,…
…just leave my name out of this please….
…My business depends a great deal upon my discretion.
Together: Amanda: Mmmhhh. /
Lee: I see.
(Lee and Amanda start counting up Jango’s undeclared income)
Lee: What do you know about this Towne?
[Naughty of Lee to suggest the guy’s name.. Amanda never said a name and approached this better!]
Amanda: William Towne. Take a good look.
[LOL well I guess now Lee has said his last name why not give the full name?! lol]
Jango: Could have sworn that was Wally Tuttle – looks just like him.
Amanda: Oh I see,…
…thank you very much. Sorry about the inconvenience.
(Amanda goes to put the photo away, happy to have had the man identified as someone else… Lee stops her and takes back the photo)
Lee: Hold it— hold it. Is it or is it not the same man?
Jango: I’ve only seen the guy maybe 4, 5 times.
Lee: Will you see him here today?
Jango: No. No, not on weekends. At least the only time I’ve ever seen him in here is on the week nights.
Amanda: Well,… (Amanda snatches the photo back off Lee)
…thank you very much for your help Mr Hart.
Lee: Yes, we know where to find you.
Jango: Lucky me.
(Amanda isn’t even waiting around for Lee to finish his sentence.. she’s off the chair and walking off!)
Lee: There’s no time like the present.
Amanda: For what?
Lee: To go upstairs to that condo and peel wallpaper.
Did you see how Lee puts his arm around Amanda’s back to direct her to turn, and she turns in the opposite direction..
It’s blurry- because Amanda’s moving fast.. but you get the idea..
Maybe a bit of a blooper.. or.. maybe it’s Amanda rebelling/ resisting following Lee’s lead?!
As they walk off we can hear Amanda respond to Lee: Ohhhhhh!!!!
In a tone like she doesn’t want to.. doesn’t want to search the condo? or doesn’t want to pursue this Wally?
Okay I’ll pause here before they go peel wallpaper!! This post is short and brimming with tension- what do you make of them here? Do tell!!!!!!
