It’s tag time!! Back to IFF and the Q Bureau. Amanda is on the phone.
Amanda (on phone): That’s terrific Sally, I know you’ll be happy. (Lee comes in)
Amanda: Well, I don’t – You never know, maybe someday…
…Say hello to Carmine for us. All right. Buh-bye. (hangs up phone)
Lee (sits on side of Amanda’s desk): Who’s that? Sally?
Amanda: Yeah, you know, Carmine’s been working all day with the Army engineers on the Omega Triad System.
Lee: I think the judge might take that into consideration at his trial.
Amanda: Hope so, he’s got a lot to look forward to.
Amanda: He asked Sally to marry him.
Lee (grinning): No.
Lee: When’s the big day?
[Wait wait wait.. did Sally actually say yes?! I mean. Tee hee.. for me Carmine is no catch! Sally is the catch! ]
Amanda: They haven’t set a date, they’re going to take it one step at a time. (Amanda doesn’t look up)
[Typical Carmine. ask her to marry him, but don’t set a date. LOL I know I’m so mean to Carmine!]
(Hearing this, Lee is thoughtful a moment, taking in Amanda)
Lee: Well, you never know. Maybe one day…
(Lee gives Amanda a sideways sneaky look)
Lee: That’s what you said on the phone. [Whoooo Lee is sooooo attentive I love it!
Is he wearing his kissing tie?! With the lips??!! lol I don’t think so.. but in the close up it looks like it! ]
Amanda: Oh yeah. (smiles) Well, ahh she asked me if I thought I’d ever get married again and I said “You never know, maybe someday.”
[Amanda is such a strong woman. She manages to give an answer while keeping it casual and keeping herself composed.]
(Lee winks at her.)
[I’ll do a wink gif.. winks always look funny in still images!]
Lee quickly leans in for a kiss…
– but Billy walks into the Q-Bureau. Gah! They pull apart.
[CINDY: Of course Billy walks in. GRRRR!]
[ROFL how Amanda immediately goes to act like she is writing something.]
Billy: We have a meeting at the White House. Where’s the report?
(Lee [Mr Professional] rummages around in the bookcase for the report.)
Lee: Uh, it’s right here, Billy. Just relax for a second.
Amanda: Yeah second one under.
Lee: Yeah, right here
(Lee hands report to Billy.. Lee moves to leave the office following Billy.)
[Almost like he is trying to usher Billy out of the office so Billy can’t address his suspicion he walked in on something.. Both Lee and Amanda trying to act casual.]
Amanda: See you later!
(Lee gives Amanda a last look as he heads out the door.)
(He lets out an audible sigh)
[I think Amanda would have heard that! I swear this is ‘It’s in the Sighs’! ]
[I think this sigh is a – ‘I wanted that kiss.. and I wanted to finish this conversation!’ what do you think?]
Lee closes the door giving Amanda a last little sly smile.
Amanda looks up slyly smiling to herself also.. [what’s she thinking folks?!]
Amanda looks up and chuckles to herself..
[Ahhhh she is one happy woman!!!
Is that two zebra on her desk?!]
And the episode ends.
What a way to leave things!!! Swoony!!!
Talk of marriage?! Amanda is open to marriage?! Lee also seems to be open to exploring marriage no??!!!! Squeeeeeee… Is marriage on Lee’s mind??!! I’m left with the vibe that this conversation is by no means finished!!!!
Okay if it’s thanks to Carmine that we get Lee and Amanda actually talking about marriage – then I like him. haaaaa..
For me, this episode has a couple of cute moments, but overall it’s pretty slow moving and seemed full of lots of filler.. and not the good (Lee and Amanda in love type). So I’m really sorry that this episode went so long on JWWM!
But.. this tag does leave me with warm fuzzy feelings about this ep. LOL!
Thanks again to Cindy for her transcription – and for sharing some comments along the way – it’s been lots of fun!!! Anyone else transcribing dialogue – feel free to do the same if you like!
Sooooo do tell! what do you all think of this tag? Of this episode as a whole?
