On to Jasands.. apparently the location of creative food and beverages [Rather appropriate after Learjet’s SMK beverages post! Thanks Learjet! ]
King Eddie: I can’t believe it, Crowley. I’ve waited so long to see my son, and then I end up scaring him to death, and getting mugged by some crazy broad. It’s all that bad karma, man, it’s catching up to me.
[Awh. Poor doofus! (Love how you used this word to describe King Eddie back in comments of post 5 Michele!
I feel for him.. that is a mess!]
Crowley: Sir, you should be in bed resting. Why not pass on this rehearsal and let me make arrangements for you to talk with the boy.
[Yes, I’ll arrange to pick him up.. and what get an assassin to kill him??!!! Crowley really is a snake]
(Eddie gets his trumpet out of its case..)
King Eddie: Thank you, Crowley, that’s very kind and I dig it, but, no, let me worry about the boy. You – you worry about getting us some ladies, eh, and some 90 horsepower blenders for the party tonight.
(Eddie starts walking off)
[Oi! As Amanda would say: I will not get you a woman!
Eddie seems to acknowledge error in past life decisions.. but then goes on to order the cocktails and ladies anyway.. Aie.. interesting coping strategy there King Eddie! So far.. I’m not feelin a liking for this King.. other than loving what he did with Francine haaaa… err maybe he’ll grow on me yet Nobody deserves this betrayal of Crowley’s though. He is the worst kind of baddie.. pretending to be his loyal servant when all the while, he is disgusted by King Eddie and plotting his destruction..
I do like Eddie’s accent – being ‘Cap d’Afar’ I’m guessing it’s french.. but it’s not a standard french accent. to me it sounds… almost French Canadian? what do you guys think? I like it.
Random thought: I wonder what the Cap d’Afar national anthem sounds like gotta be Jazz! ]
Crowley: But sir, your health!
King Eddie: Crowley, go back to the Embassy and order some party hats or something, eh? Go on…
[Aside from Crowley being a baddie, I think Eddie bosses him around and treats him without respect. This is his country’s ambassador and he is required to drum up party hats and women and ordered about with no please or thankyou. I can actually see where Crowley’s quiet resentment at having to serve this doofus, could have built up into this ugly betrayal. I noticed at the airport earlier Eddie was barking at Crowley to keep driving.. Eddie seems to want to be casual and friends, but he orders Crowley around and has him doing errands for parties? Yep.. the seeds were sown IMHO years ago! but what was the tipping point for Crowley? I can’t identify one yet.. maybe there will be more ahead which tells us.. thoughts anyone so far?]
…All-right guys, something in E-flat. Come on.
(Eddie joins the other musicians on stage.)
Crowley’s concern for Eddie’s health is sickening (pun!). I hope Crowley gets hurt real bad!
Crowley walks out and finds the beige baddie waiting in the wings. Ugh.. Beige Guyovski truly is boring. He needs a bit of style! Crowley: What are you doing here?
Soriakhof: Our engineers at the Institute of Metallurgy have finished analysing those core samples from Cap D’Far.
Crowley: Good stuff, huh?
Soriakhof: Yes, Mr Crowley, good stuff. Better than anyone could have imagined, in fact.
Crowley: A little bonus might be in order.
Soriakhof: Don’t start with me. We’re not bartering cuttlebone curios here. We have a deal.
Crowley: Things change.
Soriakhof: Mr Crowley, you are a very insignificant part of this operation. If you become a problem, we may suddenly run out of patience and generosity. Understood?
[Oh yawn.. no honour among thieves.. we get it. Move on! ]
Soriakhof: The King’s illness will take care of him. The boy, though, is a problem. Particularly if he were to return to Cap D’Far.
Crowley: He won’t!
[whooo things are getting really evil now. He has the evil hand gesture going on! Muahahahaaa!]
Soriakhof: I know. I’m going to personally make sure of that.
Yawn. they part ways.. whatevs.. Ugh.. these baddies really are quite beige.. can anyone think of a way to ‘Jazz’ things up a bit with these baddies?!
Next up we find Amanda arriving by Taxi to Terry Wall’s house.
Amanda: Hello. Mrs Wall?
Sandra: Yes, can I help you?
Amanda: I’m sorry, I don’t mean to stare but you seem so familiar.
Sandra: Uh, a lot of people tell me that.
Amanda: Well I’m very sorry, excuse me. My name is Amanda Keene, I was – I was down the street when your son Terry had the little accident…
Sandra: You must be the lady with the purse?
Amanda: Yes, that’s me.
Sandra: Terry hasn’t stopped talking about it.
Amanda: I know now, you’re Veronica – uh – Armstrong from the soap opera. The laugh gave you away.
Sandra: Hospital romance. [Oh lol you think this is a veiled reference to general hospital? is there an smk connection with it?]
Amanda: Uh huh.
Sandra: Well, you’ve got a good memory. You still watch?
Amanda: No, but my mother does. Oh, she’s just going to be crazy when I tell her Nurse Veronica lives in Arlington.
[I’m slightly scared to see this woman wearing the overalls outfit.. Dotty wears this from time to time doesn’t she? so glad I haven’t seen Amanda in this outfit! gah!!]
Sandra: Ah, I must admit it’s fun to be recognised after all these years.
Amanda: Yeah. Well, whatever happened to Dr Berkowitz? Wasn’t it Dr Berkowitz, the psychiatrist…
Sandra: Oh, he died right after I left the show.
Amanda: He died.
Sandra: It was either the x-ray machine falling on him or the gout that did him in. [rofl look out for those falling x ray machines!]
They head inside the house together.
Amanda: Oh no, it was the x-ray machine because that was no accident. [oh rofl!! I would have loved to see Lee’s face as he listened to this little exchange! ]
(Amanda’s voice continues in the background)
…Even though I asked you what happened to him, I know…
We see out front Terry take off on his bike for more deliveries. I guess he has fixed his busted tyre and has to finish his delivery run. Love how he just zooms straight out into the middle of the road without looking. almost like he knew no one would be there Off with the pixies!
