Back to the Jazz club.. and look who shows up!!
LOL.. Billy is looking a little apprehensive.. here goes!
I’m guessing Eddie isn’t really playing.. but I’m no trumpet expert. [I’m really only expert at blowing my own trumpet 😉 ]
King Eddie: All right. Hey! Like the phoenix rising from the ashes, it’s my main man, Billy Bluenote!
Billy: Good to see you, King.
Eddie gives him a big hug. LOL whether Billy wanted it or not!
King Eddie: Hey! Every time I hit town for the Fest I try looking you up but no Billy Bluenote. It’s like you disappeared into the night BBN.
Billy: Well, I stopped playing a while and did some travelling.
King Eddie: Oh man, we got some rapping to do. But first, BBN, how ‘bout another big hug… [Sweet!]
…Let’s play something nice. You guys know Billy Bluenote don’t ya?
[rofl at the vacant look on the double bass player! Classic SMK this!!!]
Billy: Ahhhh, look, King, the only reason I came up here is because I heard you were in town.
King Eddie: Yes, well, it’s like Thelonius himself sent you down. Oh man, I got some heavy stuff coming down on me, and you’re just the man I need to conference with.
[Awh.. okay maybe Eddie is a bit of a sweetie.. maybe?!]
…But first, let’s two old buds play something nice, huh?
Billy: Just remember, it’s been a long time.
[King Eddie is quick to forgive.. and likes Billy.. so okay, he’s growing on me ]
King Eddie: With amigos, it’s always like yesterday. All right, our favourite in G. One, two, a one two three.
Looks to me like Billy is playing for real?.. but again.. I’m no expert.. what do you all think?
Back to the Embassy Apartment of Cap D’afar.. lol they actually put a sign on the door?! haaaa..
I think it’s funny that it’s a 3 star kinda place.. a suite in an expensive hotel I could see as possible.. Love it!
Lee picks the lock and heads on in. Okay.. why is Lee suddenly wearing different clothes to the scene before? (blue and white shirt remember? greasy gray jacket that matched his vette’s interior?) Amanda hadn’t changed her clothes when she went to meet Mrs Wall??
Lee walks in and wanders around.
Lee:Wonder where they hang the decorating awards?
[naughty Lee! lol.. ]
He sits at the big desk. hey they seem to have books facing outward just like Lee does.. ohhh and see the cuttle bones?! Nice touch!
Lee picks up some sheet music.. looks around.. and opens a drawer. He finds Boudoir magazine..
Oi!!!!! We see Lee make a quiet little smile.. he flicks through it and puts it way. haaaa.
[Now this is a blackmail image!! shall we send it to Lee and tell him he has to take us to Spencers?!!]
I think if Amanda had been there, he would have gotten to experience that King Clobber!
At least he doesn’t linger
Lee gets up to pick open the safe.. and we hear that jazzy smk theme music which we heard back in Remembrance of things past.. Hey man, I dig that music!
He opens the safe. rofl there’s a record in there?!
…Bart Williams Blows His Horn. Class.
Lee closes the safe and continues to search.
Lee makes his way into the kitchen and opens the fridge..
sheesh.. nice view!
Lee takes out a lettuce.. He says to himself: Uh-huh, the world famous lettuce vault…. He turns it over and we see it has a plug.
…No price too high for security.
He pulls out a sheet of paper, unfolds it and reads it:
… Iron 83.2%, Manganese 16.8%.
and is it just me that these percentages are flippin hilarious? I mean.. they add up to 200%!
Okay.. I checked NB and TA are real elements.. but that’s as far as I’m taking my research. Anyone want to take over?
Lastly.. The Ambassador is Lester Crowley.. so why is this survey made out to T. Crowley?! [‘Traitorous’ Crowley maybe?]
The next thing we see is Marvelous Marvins! whoo hooo!!! some smk continuity!!! heck.. I guess it saved the prop department from creating a new burger joint!
We see Amanda and Sandra pull up at Marvin’s in Sandra’s car. Seems Amanda’s conversation has progressed from the soap Hospital Romance!
Sandra: Why would a dead man have Terry’s name in his pocket?
[For a lady in overalls, Sandra wears a lot of make up!]
Amanda: Well, that’s what we’re going to try to find out. You sure he’s going to be here?
Sandra: Well, after he finishes his deliveries he usually comes for a milkshake.
[They look around for Terry]
Sandra: Who were those men who tried to stop him?
Amanda: Look, you’re never gonna believe this, but it was the King of a little out-of-the-way country called Cap D’Far.
Sandra: Oh my God, Edmund Spencer.
Amanda: You know King Edmund?
At this moment, we see Terry ride his bicycle into Marvin’s.
He gets off his bike.. and uh oh.. we cut to a beige van.. that’s gotta be the beige baddie! gah!!! [I can see how Amanda and Sandra found Terry, but how did the baddie?]
There’s beige danger coming Terry run!!
But.. he’s focusing on ordering one of those dangerous Marvin’s burgers.. Oh please don’t let it be the Colossus!
Terry Wall: A double dog, chilli fries…
Mrs Wall: Look, there he is.
Amanda and Sandra get out of the car.
Terry Wall: … and a choco-blocko shake. Thanks.
[He stops here ‘for a milkshake’ huh.. little did his mother know, Terry stops here for a whole flippin meal! I wonder what Learjet will make of that ]
We’ll pause here for the moment.. and I’ll look forward to hearing what you all would like to share about this part of the episode, or the episode so far.. Do tell!!! All views welcome!!
