Next thing, we see the vette driving along a suburban street and hear Amanda..
Amanda: Okay, it’s got to be right along here… And that’s gotta be it, ‘cos that’s the car.
Amanda: Right there. This is it.
Lee pulls up the vette outside.
Great view of the vette here for any car fans!
They get out and head toward the house together. Birds are chirping away..
LOL I guess that report Lee had to do on the potential Gaddafi hit is not such a priority after all
Amanda: That’s the car. [She tells us this twice. Note: Very important dumb audience! And the driver has no right to privacy! ]
Lee holds Amanda by the elbow as they approach.
Lee: Heh, he could be the most surprised man in DC.
(Lee and Amanda walk up to the door and Amanda rings the doorbell. The door opens and a man in a bathrobe appears—the man looks nothing like Sallee.)
Amanda: Hello. Is Mr. Jones here?
Mr. Jones: I’m him.
LOL Lee’s smile seems to be plastered on here. haaa he doesn’t seem to be use to making home visits He’d maybe be more comfortable with sneaking in a side window?
Amanda: Mr. Bolton Jones?
Mr. Jones: You got him.
Amanda: Oh. Well. I guess you weren’t driving, but I’m the one who hit your car.
Mr. Jones: You hit my car? Where?
Amanda: In front of the hardware store, yesterday.
Yesterday?????? I thought Amanda went into the agency after sending off Dotty and the boys, and getting her smash repair quote.. she didn’t go in till the next day??
Oh wait. No that’s not right! We saw Lee in this outfit in the meeting, then cut to Amanda having the car crash. Same day. Or.. Lee is wearing the outfit two days in a row, and who thinks that’s possible?? (unless he was trapped in a swap all night without a change of clothes?!). Me thinks this is a boo boo. If editing had put the car crash before the boring meeting this would have maybe made sense.. anyway.. moving on..
Mr. Jones: That car’s been sitting in the drive for weeks. I’m trying to sell it! Ad’s in the paper, an’ all. An’ I didn’t loan it, because I been sound asleep here since 6am. I work nights.
Amanda: I’m awfully sorry to have to break this to you, but … I hit your car. It’s not a very big dent. If you’ll come with me, I’ll show you. [I don’t know about you, but I could slap Amanda. She hit his car? Like it’s all her fault?! And she doesn’t mention the driver was someone else and definitely not this guy??!!! You know.. We had an accident when one of your friends was driving your car?! What the heck?]
Together they walk over to Bolton’s car..
Amanda: Oh boy. Right here, on thi- …
(Amanda goes to point to the smashed up corner but.. it’s not smashed up!)
…Well, that’s funny.
[Here’s the car from earlier where Sallee drove it away from the accident.. doesn’t look like it had much damage anyway to me!
This is the same car. I guess watching this on tv, we would not have paid close attention to the car, and couldn’t go back and check.. so at this point I’d be likely thinking maybe Amanda is mistaken. what do you think?]
Mr. Jones: Look, if you don’t mind, I, I’d like to get back to bed. This is ridiculous!
Sleepy Jones leaves them to it.
Amanda: Ooh, I’m sorry, Mr. Jones. I don’t understand this,..
Lee lets out a sigh. [All things considered, he’s pretty patient at this moment. Old Lee would have been flying off the handle by now.]
Amanda reaches down to touch the corner, and aha! The paint comes off!
….this is the car. And this paint is wet.
[There Lee, aren’t you glad you didn’t fly off the handle? Okay.. so it is the right car! Got it! Good one Amanda!]
Lee: Okay, okay. So, the guy doesn’t want you to know what he does with his car.
Lee: Forget about it… keep the money.
Lee: Look, I have got Zawoski’s welcome aboard coffee klatch at one. That is work, this isn’t.
[Rofl I thought he was going to say the Gadhafi report.. but no it’s the welcome thingy. I’ve never heard of a coffee klatch. Smk just edumacated me]
Amanda: Okay. Why don’t you go back to the Agency, and I’ll just ask the neighbours a few questions.
[LOL I love how Amanda says this, happy.. la laaaa..]
Lee: You’re not gonna help me with my speech,…
Amanda: I’ll go over your notes,…
…and I’ll take a cab when I’m through here…. …Bye. [rofl she doesn’t wait for him to answer I love it haaaaaa]
Lee: Alright. [LOL a little gruff but he’s not fighting her. LOL]
Amanda turns back to the mysterious car and says to herself: It’s wet paint.
[Yes Amanda. we the dumb audience remember it’s wet paint.] The scene ends here.. But before we leave it. I think Lee and Amanda should have been suspicious the moment this sleepy dude opened the door… why? They’ve seen Mr Sleepy before!
Here’s where we’ve seen him before!!!
Anyone recognise it?
Maybe this image will help!
Yep, this guy was one of Tucker’s bad guys in Murder Between Friends! You’d think he’d remember Amanda because he did try and frame her for murder no?
BTW I didn’t pick this up completely randomly. I knew from IMDB this actor (Earl Billings) had been in both eps, but I didn’t know which character he was in either.. it’s fun to try and find them!
No! I won’t post an image of Tucker and his gang of baddies, because I don’t want to remember Joe King as Tucker lol.
Here’s Billy strangling Mr Sleepy haaaa.. and enjoying it whaa haa haaaa.. good thing Billy didn’t come to his door haaa!
Okay! Moving on. Amanda’s alone in the suburbs and on a mission!
Yep, this transition shot again!
Older woman: Let me think…
…Black curly hair…
Older woman: Tall… Oh. That could be Millicent’s boarder.
Older man: I thought he was young and blond?
Older woman: Oh, no, he left six months ago. Try Millicent McDonald’s…
We cut to Amanda.
…—across the street, the house with the big tree.
Amanda: Thank you very much.
[Clearly, if Sallee is hiding here in the suburbs, he has grossly underestimated the curiosity of his neighbours ]
Older woman: Oh, you’re welcome.
Older woman: Bye.
Amanda walks away, the older man waves at Amanda, then the man and woman turn to each other looking very pleased with themselves for having been able to assist Amanda with their combined nosiness
And this little scene ends here.
Life’s so perfect in the suburbs.. surely there’s nothing amiss here with this guy Amanda is looking for?!
I shall pause here for a moment too.. anything you’d like to share with us about this part of the ep or the ep so far??? I’ve been away the last few days, and will try to get back to respond to all the fabulous comments when I can- hope you are all well and looking forward to hearing from ya!!!
