We see Francine enter the grounds and find Crowley.
Ahhh that sign behind Crowley says this is the embassy of Cap D’Far. I thought this was a guest lodge? lol have they just taken over a few rooms as their embassy?! Hilarious!!
Francine calls out: Excuse me.
Crowley: Yes, Ma’am.
Francine: Yes, could you help me please? I’m looking for, ah, 30-85 Danton Street.
Crowley: This is it. Something wrong?
Francine: I’m sorry, there must be some mistake. I’m looking for the Cap D’Far Embassy.
Crowley: Uh-huh, well, that’s the Embassy – apartment 114.
[oh rofl they really have taken over ONE room as their embassy?! haaaa]
Francine: No, I don’t think you understand, I said I’m looking for an Embassy?
Crowley: As I said, Ma’am, that is the Cap D’Far Embassy – (Next thing we see King Trumpet at the head of a congo line making his way out to the pool area as Crowley continues)
…and that is her King, Edmund Spencer.
Francine: I don’t believe it.
[hmm while there’s no justifying Crowley killing Eddie, I can see why he wouldn’t be looking at the man with the greatest respect! but here Crowley puts on a good show and actually looks proud to have this dill as King.]
They pause a moment.. as Crowley lets Francine soak in all the ridiculousness that is King Eddie..
LOL at Francine’s completely deflated expression..
Royalty ain’t all royalty..
Crowley: I’ll be happy to introduce you to His Majesty if you like- …or maybe I can help?…
(Lester holds out his hand to shake Francine’s.. she reciprocates still not believing what she’s seeing.. No Grace Kelly story for her!)
…Lester Crowley, Ambassador from Cap D’Far.
[Lester???? as in the duck??!!!! Definitely a baddie!!]
The congo line makes it’s way past Francine and Crowley..
one of the guys grabs Francine and makes her join the congo line.
She’s so stunned I guess she’s taken by surprise by the unclassy horror of it all!
Oh rofl I only wish Billy, Lee or Amanda had been around to enjoy this moment! She joins the congo line as they head back to the apartment err embassy!
Lee: Mr Wall, would you just take a minute to look at this picture. (He holds up the photo)
Terry Wall 1: Don’t you think I know who you are and what you’re up to?
Lee: All I am trying to do is find out whether or not you know who the dead man is in this picture?
Terry Wall 1: Listen pal, you’re wasting your time with the stupid story of some corpse having my name in his pocket. Next thing you’ll say is you’re a cop and I should go down to the Station and identify this guy, right?
[whoa.. he thinks Lee looks like a cop?!]
Lee: No, no, no. You’ve got this all wrong-
Terry Wall 1: -Yeah, and the minute we leave, one of your buddies come out of the bushes and repossesses my truck.
[So how did Lee approach this guy to start with? I guess he didn’t show him any ID like he usually would for the IRS or whatever..]
Terry Wall 1: Look, I’m tired of being hassled, all right? No more stories. Just take the truck.
Lee: Believe me, I –
[Squirt!!!! Oh nooo! Lee’s been shot! With.. umm.. oil! Never mind.. with plastic it just slides right off saved Lee from greasing it later.. ]
Terry Wall 1: Ohhhhh..
[Lee’s reaction is hilarious.. stunned! Not unlike Francine haaaa.. these normal people are weird!]
…., oh, I’m, I’m sorry. This greasy sucker just slipped right out of my hand.
Mr slippery hands starts swiping at Lee’s jacket to get rid of the grease. LOL.
…You know, this never happened before.
Lee lets him swipe away.. smiles and puts his envelope in his pocket.. I think he’s thinking – can this day get any worse?!
Seems everyone is wanting to lay their hands on Lee this morning
Lee: Yeah. Do you mind?
Lee snatches the dirty rag and wipes his own jacket..
Terry Wall 1: No.
– probably making it even dirtier
Love the kooky music..
Love the ugh look on Lee’s face as he wipes away at it a few times with this yuck rag.
yes very much like Francine getting her first view of King Eddie- ugh yuck!!
Lee gives Mr slippery hands the dirty rag back..
shoving it into his shirt pocket for good measure. lol!
To top it all off.. Lee gives him a couple of slaps on the cheek and walks away..
No one messes with the plastic threads and gets away with it!
Moving on we see a shopping mall…
Then, a rather ick man rounds a corner followed by Amanda.
Amanda: Anything you could tell us would really be a big help.
Terry Wall 2: Listen, doll-face, you don’t have to play games with T Wall.
[rofl!! check out the swagger! rofl!! “T Wall”??!!]
…Don’t be embarrassed…
…Shoe guys and lonely ladies often get together over inventory sales.
[I’d say that’s more likely to be lonely guys and shoe ladies.. but why quibble.. no woman is this lonely or into shoes surely?!]
Amanda: Look, could you just take a look at this picture, please.
(Amanda holds up the photo of the deadguy but T Wall isn’t interested) [he’s off in his own little fantasy!]
T Wall: Please, you better be careful…
(T wall whispers) …I’ve got an extremely jealous old lady.
[I’m guessing that’s his mother 😉 ]
Love the look Amanda gives him.. like his elevator doesn’t go all the way to the top!
Amanda: Oh, you really have the wrong idea.
She shakes her head.. and continues to hold up the photo..
And the scene quickly cuts to a suburban street corner..
We’ve seen this before.. I know it..
Aha! well I’ve found one other time but there may be more.. we saw this transition in One Bear Dances –same old guy in red crosses the road… Maybe he’s Mr Walker!
We find Amanda walking down a suburban street making notes.. She crosses the road to the waiting corvette.. Lee is in there waiting. In the passenger seat??!!! why?? This is weird.. why is Lee not driving?
And why was Amanda not with Lee before? oh whatev..
Amanda gets in the drivers seat.
Lee seems tired.. rubbing his head like he has a headache. Hope it’s not that triple concussion from TEHI rearing it’s ugly ‘head’
Another mansion! 😉
Amanda: Okay, the neighbour says that Terry Wall does live in that brick house.
Lee: I don’t believe this. Ten years of international intrigue and I’m playing tag with a psychotic truck owner and a Romeo shoe salesman…
[Whoooo Amanda told him about the offer for discounted shoes?! ahem??!!
Seems Lee thinks this job is a bit beneath him..]
…The kid will probably turn out to be Damien.
(Amanda looks at Lee and just laughs.)(Kiwismh noted that-Damien is the Satanic child in the 1976 horror film “The Omen”)
And with that Bad Omen.. I’m going to pause here for the moment.. we’ll pick up where we left off next post.. Yo! Are you ready for the T Wall?!
Can’t wait to hear from ya!!!!
