We pick up where we left off. Terry ordering his chocko blocko shake.. double dog and chilli fries.. Amanda and Terry’s mum see the beige baddie approaching from where they are watching by the car.
Uh oh.. the beige baddie shows up. With a gun.
Beigehof/Soriakhof: Don’t say a word, just come with me.
[I love it, even holding Terry at gunpoint: he is rather beige!]
Beige guyovski begins to lead Terry away..
Amanda: Ah, look– no, no, look, get in the car, go to the back of the hamburger stand…
…Come on, trust me, go on, quick!
[Sandra does well to trust Amanda and do what she says!] (Amanda takes off after the two guys.)
…Ah, excuse me! Excuse me, I’m sorry, I think you got my order.
Beige: Give her the order.
[Do you think Terry recognises the crazy purse lady? I think he does..]
Terry (to beige baddie): I’ll give it to you!
(Terry slams the beige baddie with his choco blocko shake.. also beige coloured.. how appropriate. however, the impact is less beige!)
What, no stunt beige bad guy? I guess the stunts are beige too!
Amanda: Come on, come on!
(Amanda and Terry run for waiting Sandra in the car.. Once they’re all in, Sandra takes off at great speed.. phew! She blindly cuts across oncoming traffic there! they must have done car stunts on Hospital Romance! Maybe in one ep Sandra drove the ambulance!)
I love how being sprayed with a drink can make the baddie incapacitated and unable to use his gun for 5 or 10 seconds.. Who knew the choco blocko could also be a double whamo! Good thing it wasn’t a torpedo burger!
Blinding! I’m blind! Wahahahah..
His car seats are beige!!! 🙂
The scene ends there..
Back to IFF…
Lee: You’re sure no one followed you? Good work, Amanda…
…No, no. Don’t take him home. Take him directly to my apartment. The key is under the potted palm…
(The Camera widens.. and we see Francine join Lee. Ah! TP is also sitting behind Lee)
[Time to ask TP! ]
…Yeah, I’ll get back there as soon as I can. Don’t worry.
Calm down. Good work…
(Lee hangs up the phone)
[But.. hold the phone! Francine is wearing lounge chair covering!! gah!!!
Truly hideous. Can’t wait to hear what Kiwismh thinks of this one anyone else care to share also? 🙂
Back to the phone call – Loved the ‘good work’ could have done without the ‘calm down’!
Did I hear that right? Lee said “The key is under the potted palm”? Rofl! oh yes that is soooooo secure!!! Is this for flippin real?!!!! Why doesn’t Amanda have a key to his apartment? I mean as his work partner it would be handy.. ahem.. anyone just head straight to the gutter there?!
Lee’s a spy he can’t be leaving his key under the pot!
Oh wait a minute!!! Is this a little reference to this moment of discover for Lee in suburbia?
Lee: Damn it!
Amanda: What’s the matter?
Lee absently: I thought I had- Ah, heh, I guess I just locked myself out.
Amanda: Look under the flowerpot.
Amanda: Yeah, there’s probably a key under the flowerpot. It’s probably not a good idea, but we do it around here.
Lee: Ah. Ha-ha! It’s a good idea!
Back to the current episode.. it seems Lee has taken this good idea on board! [Okay, because it’s a cute reference to an earlier moment I like it! Lee is taking on suburban habits!]
Lee to Francine: That was Amanda, some guy just tried to nab Terry Wall at a hamburger stand.
Francine: Oh, and Amanda scared them off.
[IMHO Francine’s ear buttons would also do the trick!]
Lee: Well, the guy ended up on the wrong end of a choco-blocko shake, and they lost him.
Lee: That’s what she said – don’t ask me to explain.
TP: You know, Lee, if it doesn’t work out for you here in the Agency, I would suggest pharmacology. Your handwriting is delightfully hieroglyphic. [why pharmacology? it should be medicine no?]
Lee: Well I didn’t have time to cross my “t’s” and dot my “I’s” TP. [i.e. don’t cross me TP!] …Now, do you know what that is?
[Oh right.. these are Lee’s notes about that document found in the lettuce vault] This one:
TP: Well, depending on how one interprets your writing, it could be the formula for denture adhesive, synthetic marshmallow topping, or tantalum.
[rofl! I love it.. pretty much sums up what I think Marshmallow does to our health!
Plus, a formula for Tantalum? I thought it was an element. How do you get a formula for an element? I must have missed that class in chemistry?! this makes zero sense to me.. Anyone?]
Francine: Tantalum? The strategic metal?
TP: Uh-huh, the most corrosive resistant metal known to man… [I bet women know about it too Francine knew about it! haa] …It’s very essential for nuclear reactors, jets, missiles – it’s very important stuff.
Lee: And damn hard to find too.
TP: Right again, only three countries in the world have limited reserves.
Lee: You know, a week ago an unconfirmed report came down the pipe about the Russians discovering a new source of tantalum, and a lot of it.
TP: Oh well, then if your hieroglyphics are correct then little teeny weeny Cap D’Far is absolutely loaded.
[Sounds like the Russians want to sharpen their beaks on it!]
Lee: And King Edmund is sitting right on top of it.
Well.. this spells trouble! And.. I love how they just throw in there an unconfirmed report down the pipe. heck, we don’t need to hear the complicated details.. I’ll just assume it was something Rhonda picked up at the local Russian restaurant/garage or whatev!
Okay everyone.. I’ll pause here for the moment.. any thoughts you’d like to share? Can you believe Lee has a key to his apartment under a potted palm?!
