Amanda’s heading for the house with the big tree!
The shot cuts to Amanda walking along the sidewalk and up a driveway. whoo hooo! someone is rockin the violin in the house with the big tree!
Amanda walks to the door and rings the doorbell.
Amanda: Hi. Mrs. McDonald?
Amanda: My name is Amanda King. Uh, one of your neighbours told me you might be able to help me. I’m looking for a tall, dark-haired man with very blue eyes. Uh, I owe him some money but I don’t know his name, and your neighbour told me that you might have a boarder that fit that description.
Millicent: I do have a boarder.
Millicent: But, uh… I’m afraid he’s not home right now.
Millicent: Ah, but I have a picture inside, though.
Millicent: Would you like to come in?
Millicent: Ah, plea- Call me Millicent.
Millicent motions for Amanda to head inside. Millicent. Quite an old fashioned name.. is smk going for the quiet, old fashioned romantic stereotype here?!
Amanda: Millicent. Thank you very much.
Millicent: Go right on in.
Amanda: Thank you.
Millicent: Alan doesn’t know I have it.
Millicent puts down her violin and picks up the photo. Um was it hidden in her violin case? um.. if so that’s a tad weird no?!
Millicent: He’s so shy about pictures.
Millicent: It’s not very good, I’m afraid. I took it when he was asleep.
[Suggests Millicent has romantic feelings for this border of hers yes? I’m guessing she’s a widow.. thoughts? ]
Millicent hands Amanda the photo.
Umm.. is it just me or is this super creepy?!
Amanda: That’s him!
Millicent: It is?
Millicent: Good! Well, I’ll call and see if he’s back yet, and you stay for tea.
Amanda: Thank you.
Millicent heads off to get organised. Oh my… she’s even wearing pearls! Okay, she’s a bit weird, but she seems like a nice lady. A nice weird lady maybe.. A nice weird old fashioned lady. lol! Amanda seems to like her, so I guess I should too!
Inside we see a young lady entering the bullpen in a rush.. Such a rush, it’s hard for me to get a clear image. For whatever reason this ep is giving me troubles. Oh well.. so long as the swoony moments (which surely must be coming -don’t tell me! ) are clear – we’ll manage! Young woman: Excuse me, sir?
She rushes over to Sir Lee!
Young woman: Is this where they’re having the orientation lecture?
Lee: Yes. Yes, it is.
Young woman: If you have a minute, could you look over my initial registration sequence cards?
She hands them over to Lee.
I am loving this young lady not falling over herself at the sight of Lee.. and how does Lee respond to her?
LOL Lee seems a bit confused by all this orientation stuff.. and not remotely interested in this young lady! (hooray at complete lack of flirty vibes!)
Young woman: This is all pretty new to me.
[Aaand yet, you’re not wearing a guess pass. Grrr]
… You have to fill out all these?..
[Rofl seems Lee knows even less than this young agent does! He gathers himself.. and puts on a front so he can have some kind of authority. or.. is that dignity?! ]
…I mean… you have to fill out all these cards, which you have, and, uh… they look fine to me. Heh.
Lee goes to hand them back to her, she looks down.. I guess at the cards..
But then, she looks further down…
At what?! Huh?
Lee reacts.. lol.
Lee: Uh, is there something wrong? What are you staring at?
Young woman: Uh, your shoes.
She looks up.. amazed!
Young woman: My dad has some just like them!
[lol she sounds sooooo! excited!! to find someone wearing her dad’s shoes!!! Wow!!!! – huh?!
Random! and.. slightly deranged in my book! ]
She smiles at confused Lee and wanders into the training room.
[Reminds me of that weird moment where Amanda looks down at Lee’s feet in Over the limit.. but the script told us she had noticed his socks don’t match. Remember that?! ]
What the heck?
Lee looks down at his shoes wondering the same thing as me, I’m guessing… what the heck?!
The shoe lady holds the door open for him and he heads inside.. rather gingerly.. it’s like Lee is a bit scared of what he’s going to be faced with in this room! These new agents are weird! and.. she thinks I wear her dad’s shoes?!
As Lee heads inside shoe lady gives him a little grin.. Umm is she messing with him? is that what this is? because (thank goodness) there is zero flirty vibe going on here.. but .. what the heck is she doing?
As if you’d say that if you are new and this is an experienced agent? I give her the benefit of the doubt that she doesn’t know yet that this is the great scarecrow ha!
If she isn’t messing with Lee’s head on purpose? Well, then I worry about the calibre of people they are letting become agents these days. No filter between her head and her mouth.
At the same time, I figure SMK is throwing in a little gag at Lee’s getting ‘mature’ and it highlights that he is no longer a man about town- who isn’t loving that?! tee hee.. 🙂
But.. still… I find it a bit strange rather fan funny- what do you all think?
Ahhhh!! I saw on IMDB that Nancy Boxleitner is an actress in this episode. Maybe this is Nancy Boxleitner (a relation of BB?) and it’s an inside gag of some kind?
Okay I got curious!
I can’t find a picture of Nancy, but this Article mentions that Bruce has a sister called Nancy! [LOL at BB’s complaints in the article about fans (female) ‘roughing’ him up and ‘grabbing’ him! one reason why I have no desire to meet BB in person whahahaa.. kidding!! Maybe we can talk about this at Nedlindger’s if others are interested..)
How about this article.. which among many other interesting things (we can maybe talk about at Nedlindger’s?! ) It says “He (BB) has won over his youngest sister, Nancy, who migrated to Los Angeles last year and is now an aspiring actress. Big brother even helped arrange her TV debut with a small role on his series last season.”
But drat.. it doesn’t say what role she did.. Call me crazy but I’m thinking the vibe here fits a sibling gag! I’m going to guess this girl here is his sister Nancy., a newbie actress.. which explains the weird vibe and the smile at the end of the scene.. Anyone able to shed anymore light on this? What do you think?
Anyway.. I’ll need to finish up here. bye for now! Can’t wait to hear from ya!
