6/6 Season Four Episode Seven: Billy’s Lost Weekend-Scarecrow & Mrs King

Well let’s wrap up this episode shall we?
Billy rouses in the back of the white limo of doom. Joined by Rashidi, Turner and Hooch (Kimambo and the doberman).
Rashidi: We can use the needle or you can simply tell us where the Kalahari List is.
[Didn’t they already use the needle?! why was Billy unconscious before? err me confused.. whatev]
Billy : No, I’m not telling you anything!
[Billy makes a break for it.]

Amanda reports to Lee over the radio that Billy’s running, and Lee says he’s going to circle around [Billy running is noteworthy for sure. we rarely see that. haaaa].

Rashidi, Rashidi puppy and Kimambo all get out of the limo and watch Billy flee..
Rashidi : Take care of any obstacles. We’ll bring him to you.
Kimambo : Yes sir.
(Billy makes his way through a rose garden)
[hmm is this the rose garden where Amanda met Allan? I’ll leave it to someone else to look if they wish!]
He’s followed by Rashidi and the perpetually growling puppy.
Amanda gets out of the taxi and starts to follow.
Rashidi is seen to release the  hound!
[rofl. I’ve always wanted to type that!]
The doggie growls a lot while running and looking dangerous. Hey if you are afraid of dogs.. you might want to look away! 4.07BLW.avi_002273707_thumb
[Umm I’m not afraid of doggies.. but.. umm even I’m getting scared. Good doggie. Lovely doggie. ]
Billy is stuck.
Between scary doggie..
And the scary tie/handkerchief combo! gah!!!
What to do??!!!
[When Rashidi pulled his gun and smiled like that? I cracked up laughing. Genius. So camp and over the top I actually love it! Let’s go with ridiculous peeps!!]

Billy runs to the side, up the stairs.. and turns back to look at Rashidi who is following him. 4.07BLW.avi_002305338_thumb
Billy remembers carrying a disk..
it’s all coming back to him..
with Rashidi ready to pluck the info out of his hands. Uh oh! 4.07BLW.avi_002312345_thumb
Rashidi : Yessss.

Billy tries to get in through the main entrance. but nope. it’s closed on Wednesdays.. [is today a Wednesday? who knows..] Anyway, Billy wanders around the side, and finds a staff entrance – door open, ready for him to enter.. and hiding by the door in the bushes is Kimambo. [Hmm he probably unlocked the door to encourage Billy to enter that way. So glad he helped.. because I’m kind of over this episode long chase. Please. wind it up!]

Rashidi and Kimambo enter the staff entrance following Billy.
Lee and Amanda reconnect, and they too enter the staff entrance after Billy.
[Umm where’s the nice puppy dog?!]

Billy enters a room full of skeletons.. he’s remembering, but he continues to keep moving…4.07BLW.avi_002399666_thumb …knowing Rashidi and Kimambo are following him. [And following him.. and following him…]
Lee and Amanda are in the mix following too..
Amanda follows veeeery closely behind Lee. haaaa
[very very closely..]
He gives her a bit of a look. [as if to say ‘back off’ here I think. What did you read his look as?]4.07BLW.avi_002424491_thumb
[LOL she doesn’t really back off.. smart woman. haa]
[But thank goodness for these little character moments or I think I would have been looking up Thornton’s regression technique about now so I could just forget about this episode! 4.07BLW.avi_002465732_thumb
While it’s great fun seeing gun totting Amanda acting like a full on legit agent, I’m kinda over it! I hope my nark isn’t too annoying for readers.. but..
Please. I beg you Billy. Find the Kalamari I mean Kalahari list disk thingy. Please, just find the flippin thing and put me out of my misery! ]

Another minute or two of Billy looking lost, wandering the Smithsonian, followed by Rashidi and Kimambo. 4.07BLW.avi_002474341_thumb

[Whooo hey is that the exhibit where Lee and Amanda bickered over her date with David Benson???!!! no time to check, if someone else would like to go for it and please share with us what you find I could be waaay off track here who knows haaaa.
This has got to be the least guarded museum ever! Even if it is probably not open hours yet and too early.
Why, all the exhibits could come to life each night here and no one would have any idea! haa]

Billy stops at the Bear exhibit. Cue the chimes.. and Billy remembers where he put the disk.

[Oh hoorah… If he remembers where he hid it, why would he then try and actually gather it when Rashidi and Kimambo are being soooo obvious in following him so closely? and he knows they want it? wouldn’t you remember, try and cover up that the Bear exhibit was important and then come back another time or something?? then again, that would make for a rather boring action finale. It would only drag this out even more.. so I’m kinda glad he doesn’t do that lol. haaaa what do I know! ]

Billy’s all happy to have the disk. 4.07BLW.avi_002557157_thumbRashidi and Kimambo waste no time coming forward to take it.
Rashidi : It’s a shame we didn’t catch you last Friday. It would have made our customers much less anxious. 4.07BLW.avi_002561961_thumb

Billy :
You caught me after I hid the disk.

Rashidi : Of course, and then we spent the weekend trying to pump the information out of you. Now, may we have the disk.
(Billy hands it over.)
4.07BLW.avi_002576776_thumb Lee : Now may we have it back. Uh, uh, uh. Both of you, guns on the floor. Now! 4.07BLW.avi_002581181_thumb
[Amanda stays hidden]
…Now you, you keep ‘em over here. Move it over. Billy.
4.07BLW.avi_002602002_thumb Billy : Got it.
Billy reaches out to take the disk from Kimambo, who drops the disk to the ground.. they reach down to get it and Kimambo reaches for a gun hidden at his ankle. [LOL why they let Kimambo bend over like that is beyond me but whatever. Oh please no. Let’s not drag this out even more. this whole sequence goes about 10 minutes! gah!! I guess JWWM makes it last for a week gahhhhh I’m to blame!! gahhh!! ]

Oh well, Billy tackles Kimambo to get at the gun.. action sequence round 2 is underway.. Rashidi takes off with the disk, Lee whacks Kimambo. Amanda intercepts Rashidi.
[Whoooooo go Amanda! love that Charlie’s Angels training 😉 ]
4.07BLW.avi_002616216_thumb Amanda : It’s over. Go ahead.

Lee cuffs Kimambo. Amanda leads Rashidi back to Lee and Billy. 4.07BLW.avi_002628028_thumb
Lee takes Rashidi.
Amanda looks down at her gun and kind of juggles it?!
[weird. don’t do that it might go off! lol. That is not Charlie’s Angles training compliant! ]
4.07BLW.avi_002632032_thumb Amanda approaches Billy with the disk.
Billy : Amanda, did you get it?
Amanda : There you are sir… 4.07BLW.avi_002638038_thumb
(Billy seems to have gotten hurt in the struggle.. his arm? his leg?)
[I don’t know and don’t really care enough to go back and look. I’m sorry!!]
…I’ll call an ambulance.
(Amanda leaves to call an ambulance)
[you’re an ambulance! Sorry couldn’t resist..]
(Keeping an eye on the cuffed baddies, Lee joins Billy where he is sitting.)
[Where’s the doggie?! Someone needs to call a dog catcher!]
Billy : She’s gonna be just fine, Lee, just fine.
[She the list?]
Lee : I know. How do you feel? 4.07BLW.avi_002650050_thumb
Billy : I feel like beer and steaks, at Randy’s.
[Uh oh. Clearly Billy is quite unwell. someone help him!!!]
Lee : That sounds good. [It does? oh noooo Lee seems to be getting unwell too! someone help him too!
okay okay, even in the midst of my over the top snark, it is lovely to see these two celebrating their success – saving the Kalahari list, saving Billy’s career.. Life is good!] 

Hoorah!!! It’s tag time! We see Lee and Amanda’s cars parked out the front of his place..
A fire is roaring in the fireplace.
[Hooo haaaa.. why that’s right up there with candlelight – SMK code for sexy times! The camera pans over to Lee and Amanda on the couch:  Making out!]
Lee : You know what?
Amanda : What?
Lee : Pine Top just received 18 inches of new fresh powder. 4.07BLW.avi_002679679_thumb Amanda : Really?
(Lee answers Amanda punctuating pretty much each word with a kiss.)
[Hmm yes, this is my preferred form of communication with Lee ahem.]
Lee : Yup. I’ve got the skis,…4.07BLW.avi_002684084_thumb
…I’ve got the boots, and I’ve got you. 4.07BLW.avi_002689889_thumb
[Take it in peeps.. –just keep those smelling salts handy- 4.07BLW.avi_002694294_thumb
We got some sweet sweet lovin going on!]
(There’s a knock at the door.
Lee looks so unimpressed haaaa.
They put themselves back together..
Amanda has the cross necklace on still.)
[I haven’t seen the heart necklace since the start of this episode..]
(Lee goes to answer his door. This time he checks the peephole!)
…It’s Billy.
(Lee opens the door and Billy enters.)
[ahh okay so it was the arm that got hurt lol.]
Billy : …Well first, I want to tell you that I put you both on record for helping the Agency recover the Kalahari List. 4.07BLW.avi_002721521_thumb Amanda : Thank you sir.4.07BLW.avi_002723123_thumb
Lee : Yeah, thank you Billy but it, er, it was your collar.
[Speaking of collars.. Lee’s shirt is ugly ugly! but.. hey.. Lee still looks good good!]4.07BLW.avi_002725125_thumb
Billy : Ours. 4.07BLW.avi_002726326_thumb
Amanda : Well, thank you sir. 4.07BLW.avi_002729329_thumb
Lee and Amanda are all smiles.
Billy : And second, I took you off roll call for tomorrow… 4.07BLW.avi_002732932_thumb[Billy has such a cheeky glint in his eyes!]
…Have a nice looong weekend. 4.07BLW.avi_002736136_thumb
[hoooo haaaa.. Billy lays it on thick here – the subtext?
have yourselves some goodlovin!]
[rofl. Lee and Amanda look a little stunned!
I mean, what do you say when your boss gives you the green light for a dirty long weekend?!]
Amanda : Oh, well errrr..
(Billy doesn’t hang around, he knows he has left them both speechless haaaaaa..)
Billy : I’ll see you Monday.
Amanda : Yes sir.
Lee : Thank you, Billy…
(Lee chuckles very heartily as Billy exits out his front door)
…ha haaaa.. thanks a lot!!
(Lee immediately turns to Amanda the moment the front door is closed. 4.07BLW.avi_002747547_thumb
With a big grin!
He claps his hands together with glee.. 4.07BLW.avi_002749349_thumb
Amanda reacts to his excitement.
She seems to brace herself haaaa..4.07BLW.avi_002750550_thumb
as he moves toward her like he’s about to pounce! 4.07BLW.avi_002751151_thumb
[Ha haaaaa.. they totally play it for laughs. 4.07BLW.avi_002751351_thumb
And it’s very cute!
-and no. No I will not comment on those.. trousers.. I drat. I just commented on those trousers.. ]
The episode ends there..
I’m certain the next line was going to be….
‘Indoor Tennis??? Here we come!!!!!’
Yeahhhh those gestures Lee makes at the end scream: ‘Skiing’!! and.. ‘Indoor tennis’!!! haaa not!

Sorry to get all… umm logical.. especially when the tag is so fabulous and full of Lee and Amanda goodness! but…
Hey what happened to Monroe?! is he okay? I can only guess he’s toast if the baddies knew of where and when they were meeting?

Also, I want to know that NotLanni got intercepted at the Estoccian International airport and locked up for life!!! And that pay out she got was donated to a charity or something in honour of the sacrifice of the Real Lanni.. and that outfit NotLanni was wearing got burned!!! lol.

Last but not least. Please smk, what happened to the doggie Hoochie NotZeus? did he go to doggie rehab and learn to not listen to bad guys? and be less scary? and to growl less?
I’m sure this is what happened. Good doggie. I hear they are looking for good dogs at airport security since the doberman there was recently traumatised by an exploding suitcase. This doggie should apply. 

Soooo do tell!! What do you think everyone?!
Can’t wait to hear from you – as always!
Again – a big thank you to Kiwismh for doing the dialogue transcribing, your help makes this walk possible – I salute you!!!
Up next? Photo Finish!!

  1. I think this episode has the slowest “chase” sequence ever! Omg when it FINALLY ended!!!

    Amanda is absolutely adorable as the taxi driver! I love her following Lee too closely. If I was her, I’d do the same!

    And speaking of Amanda’s adorableness, I just want to add how much I love how Amanda adds “sir” to just about everything she says to Billy (not just in this episode). “Yes, sir.” “Goodnight sir.” Etc. It’s so charming the way she says it.

    When Billy says “She’s going to be just fine,” I thought he was referring to Amanda as a full-time agent.

    Also, I remember much from watching this in my younger years about the sound of the shoes walking through this museum. Those were the loudest men’s shoes in history.

    I looooove this tag!!! 😍😍😍 Their little snuggle session on the couch and Lee’s deep voice and those playful kisses between words! Whew! EXCEPT!!!! Lee’s HORRIBLE SHIRT!!! It’s like he turned in to a slick hotel lobby couch. I hate that shirt. Like loathe it. I’ll take the grandpa pants, white socks, or weird hair part anyday over that shirt!!! 🤣

    Also, would love to hear how Billy explains to Jeannie how he got shot when she gets back…


    • rofl. I love their snuggle sessions too! So much I can block out that shirt.

      would love to hear how Billy explains to Jeannie how he got shot when she gets back…

      yeah he’s been kidnapped a few times, drugged, tortured, I think she might know he isn’t really working for a documentary company 😉


      • So interesting to open up this thought, Iwsod. In TPE, doesn’t Billy speak openly to Amanda over the phone when he is at home in bed (she was calling him to talk over the night pirates taking Rupert)? I think I remember Jeannie next to him rolling over, probably still half asleep, but he doesn’t seem to be concerned about her hearing anything. So I feel like she must know exactly what he does. And then, hey, since Lester the duck is in the talks today, in that episode, the wife of the agent Lee attacked on the bullpen (what was his name and why can I remember the duck’s name better than a human!?!?!) – she knew he was agency, and spoke of his being an agent as something she’d been well aware of (the risks and collateral damage that comes with that lifestyle, for example). I’m bringing this all up in light of the episode we are walking through in real time right now, The Man Who Died Twice, and the future discussions it will raise. Just interesting thoughts to ponder to me with TMWDT upcoming posts….


    • I agree with you Amandarambler – I think Billy does mean Amanda when he says “She’s going to be just fine.” She continues to show such great improvement in each episode.


  3. Please smk, what happened to the doggie Hoochie NotZeus? did he go to doggie rehab and learn to not listen to bad guys? and be less scary? and to growl less?

    Maybe there’s a position with the fashion police as wardrobe shredder? Poor doggie would be busy for a while with Lee’s pants and half of Francine’s 1st-3rd season outfits!

  4. Umm where’s the nice puppy dog?! … Where’s the doggie?! Someone needs to call a dog catcher!

    He ditched his handler when he saw all those skeletons in the museum. After all his hard work, it’s time for a doggie delight, crunching on one bone after another. Hmm what to try next? A stegosaurus or a tyrannosaurus?

    “You’re an ambulance.” ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BEST. LINE. EVER. Thanks Iwsod. Your sense of humor makes this blog all that it is. And MANY thanks to others who write and transcribe. Love to all of you!!!!

    Operation Laundry Storm. YES! Hilarious. Someone make a meme. Thx Sarah and Iwsod.

    Gutter/coffee. New to me, but fun. I also prefer classy hints and things left to each person’s imagination, here or any other show.

    The positives of this ep:

    —Amanada looks adorable in her taxi outfit. Love it! Best of the season, maybe all seasons. I love her in this scene.

    —Billy gives the A-Okay to whatever it is btwn L&A. Ahhhhh, heart melt

    —no bad Francine outfits

    —Dottie is dancing and she is lovely, fun, beautiful, coy, playful, and, ahh, one of her very best scenes.

    —It has the guy from Allstate

    —Finally an ep that focuses on Billy, even if poorly written

    —Billy’s wonderful glint of approval

    —The wild, playful jump from Lee at the end. Though, I will add that I wished they would have zoomed out to see Amanda’s facial expression and him leaping through the air.

  6. I will start with the study questions for well-behaved young ladies and say yes, this is not only the museum where they meet in The Mole, but it is also right beside that gorgeous rose garden park in A Lovely Little Affair. It’s the Natural Hisotry Museum and between the garden and the museum, well worth a trip if you’re near LA.

    On the not so ladylike front, I will suggest that perhaps Lee has learned not to wear… ermmm.. snug trousers when he planning an evening of romance with Amanda? There were probably complaints from Lower Management.

    I’d forgotten how nicely appointed this gutter is! When did we get that espresso machine?

    It isn’t on my Most Favourite Episodes list but I do enjoy this one for the emtional back stories we get from it. They are so cute together and so willing to lay everything on the line for Billy – it is kind of a nice mix of Bourne Idenity adventure and relationship development.

    It is also famous for being the episode most likely to lead to near fist fights over whether they “did or didn’t”, but I think it’s nice that the show left you with the possibility of either being true.

    • rofl. this comment is too funny! Thanks for clarifying regarding the Mole and A lovely little affair locations!

      Ohhh I like to think that even when we are in the gutter we still do so in a ladylike way haaaaa..

      I’d forgotten how nicely appointed this gutter is! When did we get that espresso machine?

      Oh my gosh. this is hysterically funny!!! [Is this you clagjanet or a quote from someone else? I missed the original comment sorry?]
      See even in the gutter, we are classy – only real coffee will do haaaaa..

      I love how our ‘gutter’ is a SMK 80’s PG time slot version of the gutter. I personally think it’s funnier to skirt around things, hint at things, and keep things… classy… while hanging out in the gutter!
      it’s been a while since I visited, I had no idea about the espresso machine addition either. Who supplied that? Jule? was that you??!!

      It is also famous for being the episode most likely to lead to near fist fights over whether they “did or didn’t”, but I think it’s nice that the show left you with the possibility of either being true.

      Ahhh yes, thanks for the reminder of this – I hadn’t realised this particular ep sparked such fan controversy!
      I’ve never tended to argue for either side of this debate.. I agree with your take on it clagjanet – the show left it vague to let us decide for ourselves… and I think it was a savvy decision.


  7. It is sort of silly that Rashidi got up that morning and decided to pick out a matching orange tie-handkerchief combo so he could get himself a Kalahari List. Does he have some other planned event to get to, or is that the “main event” of the day?

    I like seeing Amanda getting more into her agent role and yes, even toting the gun. I think she was pushing Lee to ‘move move’ so they could get to Billy faster? Maybe?

    Yes, the ending is cute. And Billy’s grin. That’s probably one of the tasks he really enjoys–complimenting his team and rewarding them with time off. Such a good boss. I think Lee’s outfit choices are because he’s distracted by his thoughts of Amanda. We’ll excuse him, but maybe someone can snatch those tan trousers off the laundry pile next time he’s not wearing them?

  8. Great recap! I laughed out loud several times. Especially at the screen cap of “cheeky” Billy above, he looks hilarious.

    The tag on this episode is particularly satisfying…so sexy and sweet, in spite of Lee’s heinous ensemble. They both seem to radiate joy. I think KJ might have one of the most beautiful smiles ever created…

      We’ve waited 3 season for this… and it’s soooooo good!!!


    • Am wondering if BB ticked off the wardrobe dept? or maybe MS found a way of diverting the scary outfits from her to BB? The clothes are all I noticed in this final set of scenes (other than the very scary dog).


      • aha! I think Learjet has figured out what’s really going on here!
        Maybe the Who’s the boss/moonlight/ miami vice (take your pick) wardrobe department infiltrated the smk wardrobe department and set them up to fail because BB is just. that. good.


      • Maybe SMK and MacGyver’s wardrobe departments were swapped for this episode, because he was giving me a very Richard Dean Anderson vibe with the clothes. Not a good look on him.


  9. Hi guys, sorry if you got a notification for the publishing of this post twice. I had to upload it to my files and then download it again. Trying to fix the formatting for the final part of this post.
    the Html code looks normal.. it all looks correct till it is actually published. I’ve never seen this before.
    I’ve done what I can to fix it, and who knows maybe it’s just a temporary glitch. soooo if you can see the formatting is a bit strange toward the end of this post – apologies, I’ve tried to fix it and… please just go with it 🙂

    Can’t wait to hear from you guys about this ep!!


So what do you think??? :)
