Hi everyone! We leave Dotty to her ‘cookin’ and move on to Lee’s place.. Amanda’s car is parked out front. What a happy sight to see! Inside, Lee is on his couch looking at brochures and hears a knock..
He gets up to answer..
He switches brochures and takes a loooong walk to open his front door. What. A. View.
tee hee.. Have we seen Lee in tracksuit pants before?]
He opens the door.
Amanda : Hello
Lee : Hi
[ahhhhhh so lovely to see a hello kiss – that just looks so natural between these two.. ]
Amanda : I thought you might like some company.
Lee : Yes I sure would. I’m getting cross-eyed looking at this computer… [lol you trickster Lee, you were going cross eyed over brochures!] …Uh, Amanda, sit down for a second.
Amanda : Yeah.
Lee : I want to talk to you about something. [ uh oh. he wants to break up???? LOL Amanda doesn’t seem concerned about that at all. Oh and I see she still has the cross necklace on. Hey Nancy glad we are on necklace watch together!! I bet I will miss things!]
Amanda : What?
Lee : I didn’t change any plans but you got me thinking this morning. I really forced you into this ski trip I –
Amanda : You didn’t force me into it. I want to go ski–
Lee : Yes, I did. I want you to know that is not our only option. There are a lot of things to do.
[Oh my. He’s soooo serious and earnest! Love how Lee is soooo serious about discussing their options for having the most fun!! heheehee…Lee takes Amanda having fun soooo seriously I love it! ]
Amanda : I know that.
Lee : Now skiing would be fine –
Amanda : Yeah.
Lee : But I did some checking and before we nail it down I want you to consider this.
(Lee hands Amanda a brochure.) [LOL- Visual aids!]
Amanda : Marathon Quay. Not sure what or where this is.
Lee : Sailing, scuba diving, miles and miles of beaches –
Amanda : Listen, this is really nice but I really don’t –
Lee : -Exactly, crowds this time of the year, I thought the very same thing, so, how about this?
(Lee is ready with option 2! He hands Amanda a new brochure)
[LOL Lee is so serious it’s hilarious. Kinda Adorable! He’s ready with at least 10 options for Amanda.. even if she didn’t even say she doesn’t want it. lol!]
Lee : Bar Harbor.
Amanda : Maine???
Lee : We could go fishing.
Amanda : It’s freezing in Maine. You want to go ice fishing?
Lee : How about a house boat?
(Time for another brochure.) [Rofl Lee’s hilarious here)
Amanda : Oh, a house boat.
[I’m surprised he doesn’t suggest they hire a yacht.. especially after their cosy good times on the Mata Hari II! Amanda did say they ought to do that more often ]
Lee : Yeah.
[haaaa he looks sooo proud of himself! But Lee.. what happened to the fantastic ‘indoor tennis’?!]
Amanda : You don’t have to give me all these choices.
Lee : No, I don’t have to but I want to go on a trip where you will have the most possible fun.
[Just when I thought this guy couldn’t get any cuter. He takes his sweetheart’s pleasure ohhh soooo seriously! tee hee… –mind out of gutter iwsod!]
Amanda : I’m going to have the best possible time that I can have on a vacation just because I’m with you. I don’t need all of these choices. I don’t want all of these choices…
[I love how gentle Amanda is with Lee here. Calm, reassuring.. his heart really is safe with her ]
… I don’t want to have to make a choice…
[Amanda changes the mood and adds some good humour here IMHO] …I want to go skiing.
Lee goes to respond, but there’s a knock at the door.
[So come on everyone – what’s going on here with Lee? I can’t wait to hear what you are all thinking about this one!
I’m picking up on nerves here from Lee – this is a big deal.. and he wants it to be perfect, he wants Amanda to enjoy it.
Like, maybe he worries that he won’t be enough? ]
Lee looks at the door.. then back at Amanda.. he starts to insert his own playfulness back into things here as he goes to answer the door..
Lee : Are you sure?
Amanda : I’m sure.
Lee : Oh. (walks to the door)
[Lee is quite distracted opening the door late at night to someone unknown and he isn’t even looking to see who it is?! You’re slipping Scarecrow!]
[Billy looks like a man on a mission. Single minded.. he just wanders into Lee’s home without even really looking at him.
Amanda stuffs the brochures down between the pillows. lol]
Billy : Hi Lee.
Lee : Uh, Amanda and I were just burning the midnight oil.
Amanda : Hello sir.
Billy : Hello Amanda.
[Awh lol he has time to give Amanda an extra warm smile though. Why? what do you all think?
The cat’s out of the bag. Okay, a little more out of the bag?! tee hee..
I’m thinking with her car parked out the front he knew she was there. And.. he knows what this means- and he’s really happy to see what he is seeing ]
Lee : You remember something.
Billy : Yes, that woman today. I’m getting things I’m supposed to get. Now she didn’t want me to call her. She knew I could trace the car. The matchbook was the only thing that mattered. It was my invitation to remember.
[Billy’s mind may be a bit jelly like, but he’s still sharp!]
Lee : You think you’re being set up?
[Aie – SMK bingo! someone poses a question that is obvious so someone can spell it out for the audience! ]
Billy : Somebody knows what I did this weekend! It’s being fed to me in pieces. The largest piece is the Embassy. I’m going back in. I need your help Lee.
Lee : We don’t know if you’ve even compromised someone.
Billy : I have to keep opening doors until I find out for sure. Lee, help me. Help me find an hour, two hours, a day of my life. [Lee non verbally agrees with his ‘okey dokey’ facial gestures.ha!
Trust me. they are there honest!
He will help. Of course he will!!! Awh.. Billy knows he can count on Lee and Amanda!]
Lee and Billy pull up out front of the embassy. Lee changed out of his tracksuit pants and into some jeans. lol. why I don’t know.
Love how Lee gives Billy a hand getting over that fence [though lol I’m guessing that wasn’t really Billy no way]
Cue the lurking around outside in the dark footage.
Back inside Rashidi continues to pet is puppy dog while talking on the telephone. Nice doggy.
Rashidi : You’re sure? Good. No, he should have no trouble getting in. You’ve watched him very well Kimambo. Don’t worry, Mr Melrose will have a memorable experience.[Oh? Muahahahaahahahahaahhaa!!!! Good puppy! I’m a little sad we don’t have any tea sipping going on. But I’ll hold out hope we may yet see this!]
Back to Lee picking a lock to enter.. [and it’s mysterious chimes overload! You guys, this is… mysterious! eerie!!! Chimey!! I gotta say, breaking into an embassy is a pretty serious breach..]
They climb the staircase.
The suspenseful mysterious music intensifies. Billy strokes the banister. [Yes. strokes. haaa. His memory seems to be triggered..
Ironic that Billy is on the stairs having memories of being on the stairs before.. when Lee too has memories of these stairs!! hehehe..]
Lee tries to get his attention and bring him back to task.
Lee : Billy!
They sneak into the office of the Assistant to the Ambassador. The helpful sign tells us so..
Billy : This room. I’ve been here before. And there’s a safe here too. Right over there…
(They move over to the safe)
[No sign but we is smart enough to figure it out ha!]
… I broke into this. Damn it! Why?
Lee : Just take your time…
[No please don’t take your time. It’s rather dull! Is it just me or is the ‘Billy retracing his steps’ thing kinda slow moving..
I was on these stairs.. oohhh!!
I was in this room! whoooo..
I was in this chair! whoaaaa!!
I was at this table!!!…wooooowww!!
someone’s been eating my porridge!!!! whoooo
– oh hang on no that wasn’t in this episode
I think most of the breaking into the embassy sequence could have been cut down to about 6 seconds.. I’ve got $6 bucks that says so.. ]
(Lee tries to reassure Billy. But the words are barely out of his mouth when – uh oh. The lights and the alarm bells go on. Scratch that!)
… Come on!
(Lee pulls Billy to his feet and they rush out the door. LOL they head out the way they came, to that main staircase. aaaand yep, two armed guards enter the foyer and see them at the top of the stairs. Shocker. Not.
they rush back to the office.. Lee locks the door..
Billy’s memory is jogged some more by this little pursuit. whoooooo… How convenient!)
Billy : There’s a gutter pipe that goes down to the south lawn.
Lee : What?
Billy : I’ve done it before.
(They rush out onto the balcony, and I can only guess- down the pipe. the guards burst in. RIP blue door.
They rush out again in pursuit..)
[lol Why didn’t they go check the balcony? whatev.]
In comes Rashidi, Puppy and Kimambo.
Yes, I do need to include a picture of the puppy!
Rashidi : Can they catch them?
Kimambo : I don’t think so.
Rashidi : Make sure they don’t.
[Rashidi directs Kimambo to get to it.. and has himself an evil little chuckle. He has dimples. lol. cute. evil cute dimples.]
Outside, cue the fleeing for your lives footage.
Machine guns firing..
Random ramblings in what I can only guess is Estoccian.
Lee and Billy gather in the trees.
Lee: What the hell was that all about?
Billy : Let’s not hang around to find out.
[Lee sounds so much more out of breath that Billy! Rofl!!!! I guess that’s the benefit of having a stunt man do your running…]
Soooo any thoughts you’d like to share all?? Can’t wait to hear from ya!
