Well, moving on.. and it’s back to Emelio’s… Rostov enters..
and sees Lee and Amanda over at a booth eating.
]Hmm I thought they had broken up?! I guess Lee is cheating on Sonja! lol]
We find Francine is following Rostov. [LOL rather closely! ]
[She seems surprised to see him approaching Lee and Amanda. Hmm maybe also surprised to see Lee and Amanda eating togehter off the job? or… is this part of the lisbon variation thing and it could be perceived as pretending to still be in this unhappy couple? What does everyone think?
I guess now Lee is giving the radio frequencies to Sonja Francine is no longer trying to create a window with Rostov? And instead she’s just following him?]
Rostov: Excuse me. Are you the party that requested the limousine?
[from the Henchman & Limo Service?]
[Don’t you recognise Frankie Columbus?!]
Rostov: The call specified a black limousine… to be engaged for the entire evening—correct?
[Francine seems to be frantically taking photos of this approach with her compact.. or checking for a pimple. Not sure But she also seems to have changed outfits for the occasion of following around Rostov. Lee and Amanda haven’t changed.. ]
Lee: No—I don’t think so.
Amanda: No. Heh.
Lee: Did the caller leave a name?
Rostov: There seems to be a mistake. Excuse me.
[Francine is seen and heard to be frantically capturing pictures throughout]
Lee and Amanda look pretty confused..
Amanda: You’re sure that was Rostov?
[LOL yeah maybe it was Frankie Columbus! ]
Lee: Positive. He ran the procedure down perfectly. He was expecting a meet.
[Sheesh.. Lee looks a little out of focus here! What a shame ]
Amanda: All right. Why would the KGB station chief wanna meet you?
[Why is the assumption Rostov wanted to meet Lee? Amanda’s an agent now, he may have wanted to meet her?!]
Lee: Huh. That’s a good question. [Maybe Sonja told Rostov Lee was about to give her stemwinder frequencies? lol I guess that would be too simple! and this is the Russians! 😉 ]
[Whoooooo… so what’s going on here.. Someone setting up Lee and/or Amanda to look like they are double agents? or lol. if Lee is deliberately giving information to the Russians he’d be a triple agent wouldn’t he? Like Harry V Thornton?!
Well, there are certainly signs the Russians are up to something.]
The scene ends here.
[Okay.. did you guys notice the bird? Above Lee and Amanda- It’s rather- peacock like!!! Maybe a pheasant.. but haaaa I thought it was a great prop!]
Moving on, we find Lee and Amanda parked outside Sonja’s.. I guess it’s the night Lee hands over the radio frequencies..
Lee: Same check-in signal…
Lee: I’ll tap the mike every hour; tap-tap… pause-tap.
Lee: Yeah; just to let you know I’m okay.
Lee: Now, it’s 10:00… I should be out of there by midnight.
Lee smiles a little smile, and pauses a moment before he continues..
Lee: Look, Amanda… it’s an agent’s option to spend the night…
…I don’t want to…
[whooo hooo! I love that not only will he not stay the night, nor does he want to
So! Finally we get a bit of a conversation about what is actually going on here and their relationship!!]
(Amanda responds with a massive smile)
[IMHO if he had stayed the night or if he had wanted to, it would have been bye bye Lee! I don’t care how good you look in a tux!]
…. I feel a headache coming on.
(Amanda’s smile gets even bigger, and she then puts her headphone in her ear)
Amanda: I’ll see you at midnight.
Lee: You bet.
(Lee smiles and gets out of the car.)
[Awh.. he’s happy things are this way too. thank goodness!]
(Left alone, Amanda rehearses to herself..)
The Scene ends here.
Boy, I’m looking forward to hearing what you have to say about this ‘agent’s option to stay the night’!!!!
I remember this was implied in Weekend & in that pillow patter script that was never filmed. I find it all rather Ick.
However, it’s also wonderful to see this ‘perk’ of the job no longer interests Lee..errr and iwsod will blot out any thought that it ever was!!!
Any thoughts you haven’t blotted out that you’d like to share? Please do!
