Transcripts Update August 2020

Hi Everyone, hope in these universally stressful times you are staying well and looking after yourselves.

Time to review where season 4 dialogue transcripts are up to, then we’ll get on with the walk Smile . It’s time to see who is interested in contributing, and reassure everyone this is not an obligation – smk is for fun- and don’t feel any pressure to do this!! My priority for upcoming posts is transcription of Lee/Amanda scenes – if you’d like to volunteer and just transcribe them, go right ahead, I think it’s likely for some upcoming episodes they are going to be walked through with less posts!

Note: This list is a living document, and I’ll update it as things change. Here’s a summary of where transcripts are up to for remaining Season 4 episodes:

Completed: [Huge thank you everyone!!!!]
10. Need to Know – Sara transcribed
11. Santa’s Got a Brand New Bag – Clagjanet transcribed
12. Any Number Can Play –Learjet transcribed
13. Promises to Keep – Clagjanet
15. Bad Timing – Sara transcribed
16. Do You Take This Spy – LeeLovesAmanda
19. All That Glitters  – Clagjanet transcribed
22. The Khrushchev List -Learjet transcribed

Not assigned and looking for a volunteer:

21. A Matter of Choice
[Anyone interested? you can just transcribe the Lee/Amanda stuff if you like, I can’t remember this episode,maybe it’s really bad?!] 

Assigned and confirmed to be underway:

14. Rumors of My Death – Cindy D

Assigned, yet to confirm the transcribing is going ahead:
17. Mission of Gold – Melissa R has volunteered
18. One Flew East – BJo has volunteered
20. Suitable for Framing – Melissa R has volunteered

Sorry if I’ve made a mistake here – just let me know and I’ll update the listing. No pressure on ANYONE to do this – I can continue the walk without transcripts it will just be a bit different/shorter. For some season 4 episodes maybe that’s for the best?! lol. so many I don’t remember!!

I think I’ll come back to Operation Sandstorm once I’ve finished the walk.

Take care all!! thankyou2

  1. Hi Everyone, I’ve updated the blog post to reflect the current status of episode transcriptions. If I’ve stuffed up please let me know!

    At this point, I haven’t heard from BJo, or Melissa R – but these 3 episodes are quite a while away so I’m not too worried at this point. I might give it a few more months, and if someone really wants to do it at that point maybe we can re-allocate them.

    I love how our lives change over time, and sometimes people have time for this and other times they don’t – but when it’s not a good time for you, it might be the perfect time for someone else!
    You guys rock!!!!


  2. Iwsod – I just sent ClagJanet the transcript for Do You Take This Spy? so she can look it over. She will send it on to you once she’s done.

    Do you have any other episodes that need transcribing?

  3. OMG… grab the drool bucket and smelling salts! I just finished transcribing “Do You Take This Spy?” I don’t know how I got through transcribing this episode without major bruising from all the fainting due to the swooniliciousness that is this episode! I’m going to give it a day or two rest and then watch it again and make sure I have everything. I’ll let you know. 😀

    • I am not altogether convinced Bruce and Kate aren’t legally married after that ceremony. It is so simple and yet so heartfelt, it’s my fave tv wedding of all time.

      • (Hide your eyes iwsod) oh, my, yessss the looks they give each other, their smiles, the way their fingers intertwine, the breathiness of their responses… (faint) oh geez, there I go again… (thud)

  4. Hi Everyone, thanks for your comments and emails related to transcribing dialogue for remaining episodes in the walk!!!! I am honestly blown away and had zero expectations here – so thank you!!!!

    I’ll just flag with you guys that the one transcript making me just a little twitchy right now is 4.13. Promises to Keep.
    I’ve emailed Happy Camper but haven’t received a reply yet. But it’s only been a week. So I’m going to hold off making any changes to allocations for another week. I understand there are way more important things in life than SMK and JWWM! 🙂

    I’ll be looking to start writing up Promises to Keep soon.
    (I’m about to start writing Santa’s new bag.
    Am walking through Any number can play, then Santa’s new bag, then Promises to keep)
    … so I will need to finalise things for Promises to keep within the next month.

    SMK is for fun!!! and if I don’t end up with a transcript I’m just going to write up the episode as best as I can anyway, while trying to have fun!!!!


  5. I’m a little of a fourth of the way through “Do You Take this Spy?” I should be done in a couple of days. I’m an insomniac who lives by herself and is isolating because of COVID. I needed something to do.

    • If you (or anyone else doing this) want to send it to me when you’re done, I can do the sanity second check of rewatching with it in front of me to check for errors. I find that I’ve ALWAYS missed something! Lol

      My email is

      I use Petra’s site all the time for writing fanfic and needing the dialogue so this is entirely selfish of me to want these done! 😂

      • Ok great! I do have a question, though. Do I have to catch every “uh” that they utter? I’m sure I missed some lol


        • Do you have the option to use captions? If there are repeated words, that sometimes helps. Also, it has helped me when they weren’t speaking into the mic. Another pro tip, transcribe with headphones.

        • There are two types of “uhs”. The first kind are sometimes useful because they show that someone is thinking out loud and shows the conversational beats. The second kind are BB trying to remember his line and you can watch his delivery speed up as soon as he remembers. 😂 … So it’s up to you if you want to include them.

          • That’s really funny. It’s actually the guest star who plays Nick Grant that uh tends to uh put an uh in and amongst everything he uh says…


            • Oi! please no discuss future episodes. I’m going in unspoiled (it’s been literally years since I saw them) and I’d like to keep it that way as much as I can – thanks for your understanding! 🙂 – I know it’s tough!!
