3/7 Season Four: Episode Thirteen- Promises to Keep -Scarecrow & Mrs King

Brace yourselves.. time for a Francine ‘interrogation’!
(Francine tries to play good cop.. referring to the ‘citation’ Lee got for ‘abusing prisoners’.
Foretune doesn’t seem to know where he is, but boasts about his rights and the law..
So Billy comes on in with his trolley…
…of vials and syringes. lol.
[Uh oh. Haaa that’s a lot of vials and syringes! but on the upside, they are going to be super careful and use alcohol wipes! haaaa!!! Safety first!]
Deadpan, Billy tells Francine (aka ‘Blondie’) that she has one minute. and he leaves.)
[Okay, Foretune is way less cocky now!]
Foretune: …Who the hell’s that? Police nurse? [Whahahahaah Billy the police nurse!]
(Francine starts making preparations to be giving injections, finding veins etc. Foretune’s desperation rises and eventually he starts talking..
Francine shows Foretune a picture of TP and Peralta..)
[lol at the random text- a real shocker!]
Francine: Who is this with Peralta?
Foretune: It’s Peralta’s confidante. He’s like his right hand man… he gives him tips… advice…
Francine: For how long?
Foretune: I don’t know. A year? Maybe two. He got started by selling bits and pieces from DEA reports. Before long the boss wouldn‘t make a move till he talked with him.
Francine: What’s his name?
Foretune: You’re kiddin’ me… you guys must know that. Peralta calls him Percy the Professor.
[uh oh. He has a nickname?? Why, that’s smk code for bad guy!!! gah!!!!!!!!]

Billy, Lee and Amanda discuss this case..
(Billy notes there’s a file on ‘the Professor’ that is ‘three inches thick going back eighteen months.’
We find out the full name of Peralta’s boss – Donald Jordan. He’s been on his island is in the Caribbean, for ‘the last five years’, where he is avoiding ‘a couple of dozen indictments.’)
Billy: (opening a file to a photo of Jordan)
Here’s the big man himself…4.13PTK.avi_000897297_thumb
… Now if Aquinas is connected with Peralta or Jordan in any way, I want to talk to him. Bring him in.
(Lee tries to resist this but Billy is firm.
As Billy walks away and enters the elevator Lee suddenly erupts at him…)
Lee: (angry) Look, I don’t care what anybody says. TP Aquinas has risked his hide for me and this Agency one too many times!
(Billy is unmoved by this, and leaves Lee with Amanda to calm down. Aie.)
Amanda: (trying to calm him) You’re shouting.
(still angry) Well, I’m mad! (quieter) 4.13PTK.avi_000922022_thumb
…I’m good and mad. (sighs)
…Actually, I’m more worried than mad…
…TP is the only other person I ever trusted before I met you, Amanda.
[wow… not even Billy? I mean…..awhhhh…but….huh?]
Amanda: (she reaches out) Look, we’ll find TP and he’ll clear this whole thing up.
(We cut to the wider shot and find they are actually holding hands there in the corridor.. 4.13PTK.avi_000938438_thumb
Uh oh.. and here comes Francine again!)
{They drop hands as Francine approaches them down the hall.} Lee: Uh, just business, Francine.
{Lee walks off down the hall.} 4.13PTK.avi_000943643_thumb
(moves to follow him but leans in to speak quietly to Francine) I need to talk to you later. 4.13PTK.avi_000944444_thumb
(Amanda walks off too..) 4.13PTK.avi_000946446_thumb
[I bet Francine is looking forward to hearing this one – Aie!
What do you think of Amanda’s pyjama top?!should we call in the fashion police?]

Back to Lee’s place that night..
…Lee and Amanda arrive..
[Seems Lee lives in apartment 1B. lol.]
Lee: Maybe there’s something in my old appointment book that can give us a lead… you know, show a pattern. (unlocks door) Plus, I’ve got some leftover spaghetti that should hit the spot, huh?
[After skipping that steak and kidney pie I’ll be it would!]
(They enter and we hear music.. they stop in surprise..)
Amanda: Well I don’t believe it.
{TP is sitting in an armchair with a tray in front of him of spaghetti and a glass of wine. He swallows his mouthful of dinner.}
4.13PTK.avi_000968468_thumb[Is it just me or does this have a goldilocks and the three bears vibe?! haaaaa TP as goldilocks! Hey that Lee/Billy photo is on his mantelpiece. Hmmm.. ]
TP: Your capellini is delicious.
Lee: Half the feds in DC are looking for you and we’re two of them!
(He catches sight of the bottle of wine) …Aww! My Gottenara ’71! [Who’s been drinking my wine!!!] 4.13PTK.avi_000978078_thumb
TP: I’ll owe you. I owe you a lot more than that. And perhaps even a lot more before this is through. 4.13PTK.avi_000983683_thumb
Amanda: TP, we’re a little bit confused. The man you were with in the kitchen said you work for Raymond Peralta. 4.13PTK.avi_000987687_thumb
[I’m confused about how TP got into Lee’s apartment!]
(TP explains he couldn’t tell Lee what was going on with the bodyguard around.. but he was here to now share..)
TP: … Follow me…oh, I wouldn’t expect you to listen on an empty stomach.
(Lee and Amanda head into the dining room to hear TP’s story. After all, he doesn’t share exposition without food or an interesting prop to keep us interested!)
TP: I’ve been involved with Peralta for about five years. It’s similar to our relationships, Lee. I’m sort of a source, a confidential advisor, only with one discernible difference. What I give Peralta, he could find out for himself anyway or it’s a few days late. No, it’s more my charming presentation and loyalty that I’ve used to sucker Mr. Peralta.
[Does he sucker Lee with his charming presentation and so called loyalty too??!!
TP seems pretty deft at minimising the help he offered Peralta! I mean getting information a few days early can actually be a big deal!]
Amanda: TP, he’s a drug dealer and you’re working for him!
TP: Oh, I know it sounds bad…
Amanda: It sounds terrible. I have two teenage boys and it scares me to death!
TP: Two weeks ago, the DEA busted six million in Philly. Last month, ten million in Miami. Now, I was the source of those raids, anonymously, of course, but I kept complete records.
[ahhh the ‘I might have done bad things over here, but- look over there I did good things too!!’ defence!]
Lee: Fine, but why? I mean, no offense, TP, but you are a bookworm. This is for the pros. 4.13PTK.avi_001057357_thumb
The pros? As in DEA and FBI? They’ve been after this organization for years with little success. 4.13PTK.avi_001068168_thumb
So suddenly five years ago, you decided to start a one man crusade? 4.13PTK.avi_001071771_thumb
TP: Suddenly? Yes, it was quite sudden.
-time for a flashback!!-
We hear TP recount what happened as we watch the flashback..
[Holy Cow. Eloise looks like she could be Amanda’s stunt double!]
TP: (voice over) We were going for a Sunday walk.. when I say ‘we” I mean Eloise and our six year old son. We didn’t have any warning at all.
4.13PTK.avi_001091391_thumb{TP is walking with his wife and son. As he goes to get a paper out of a sales box, a car pulls up driven by a much younger Donald Jordan. A man on the street sees him pulling a gun…4.13PTK.avi_001099799_thumb
…and drags Eloise in front of him as a shield…4.13PTK.avi_001106606_thumb
… Jordan fires… 4.13PTK.avi_001107007_thumb
TP looks on in horror. 4.13PTK.avi_001108608_thumb
the flashback ends here.
[What is supposed to be a really serious, tragic, heart breaking moment for me is just.. weird!
Firstly, TP is way too old for this to be his wife and son.  haaaa.. Just how many years ago is this? we know it’s more than five years ago and TP hasn’t aged a day. lol.
And.. How is a woman a better shield than hiding behind the bench?
And.. what happens to his son? He gets shot dead too? really? Jordan just shoots away with a shotgun at anything in his way? I find this flashback preposterous. Sooo it’s a bit tough to feel for TP but heck, I’ll give it a red hot go!]

LEE: Sorry, TP, we didn’t know. 4.13PTK.avi_001123423_thumb
TP: It was before we met…
[Do we know how long they’ve known each other? I guess it has to be less than around five years ago,after Jordan moved to his island.. ]
The killing was gangland related. Young Turks struggling for control of the drug trade. And the shooter was an up-and-comer named Donald Jordan.
Lee: Ah. Well, he certainly made it to the top.
[I can tell I’m really not buying into all this lol. I just noticed they are eating with chopsticks! I thought they were going to eat spaghetti!]
TP: Floated to the surface like spoiled cream. I watched him rise. The best lawyers that money could buy have kept Jordan beyond the law. So I decided to go after him myself. Now Peralta was the key to getting into the organization. Every day, I worked my way closer and closer for the past year and a half and now I’m ready to spring the trap, Lee.
[Year and a half?  Hmmm..]
Lee: TP, Jordan is holed up in his fortress on the Stanasklaus Islands. He is untouchable there. Now, with thirty indictments waiting for him, he is going to stay. 4.13PTK.avi_001160660_thumb
TP: He’s scheduled to arrive here via Canada in less than 12 hours. These seeds I’ve sown are bearing fruit. Peralta and Foster are at each other’s throats… [Aha! Divide and Conquer!] …Jordan is coming in to make peace, he has no alternative.
Amanda: You did all this alone?
Indeed, but it’s a gossamer web that the DEA could blow apart in a single breath. That’s why I need your help, both of you… twenty-four hours and a place for Peralta, Foster and Jordan to meet. I know it’s asking a lot but I’m so close!
Lee: (sighs) It’s going to be tough to deliver, TP.
Under any other circumstances, Lee, I wouldn’t ask. Will you do it?
Lee and Amanda exchange a look over the table.
Lee nods, ‘yeah’.4.13PTK.avi_001204704_thumb
TP looks utterly relieved!!! 4.13PTK.avi_001206706_thumb
The scene ends…
Now this is a big ask!!!)

Thoughts everyone? Anyone else confused by time frames?

2/7 Season Four: Episode Thirteen- Promises to Keep–Scarecrow & Mrs King

On to the country club!
[Have we seen this location before? I dont have time to look but if anyone wants to- go for it!]
Lee is taking a shot
as Dr. Smyth watches.
[What game is this they are playing with two balls? Anyone know about this stuff? me no. Clearly!]4.13PTK.avi_000333233_thumb
{A waiter enters with a tray of drinks.}
Smyth: Snifter? [oh rofl. I’m already reaching for the dictionary with Dr Smyth and his turn of phrase, and I’m a native English speaker! lol.]
Lee: No, thanks.
Smyth: Bad news. Worse news. Bad news first. You’ve heard of Geraldine Jubal?
Lee: Yeah, she’s the new head of the DEA. Word is, she’s a real hardnose… [my my she would not be pleased with an agent calling his team of male colleagues ‘girls’! haaaa. I guess i’d be called a!]
…What’s the bad news?

Smyth: She’s heard of you… [Who hasn’t?!]
…Now, the worse news.
He pulls out a photo from his jacket pocket and lays it on the side of the table}
…Sometimes contact of yours from the Library of Congress.
Lee: {picks up picture. It is TP and Peralta outside the limo} T. Percival Aquinas? Tempe mega Green source, input only under my supervision. Where’d you get this?
Smyth: Under my compote at Jubal’s dinner party last night. Recognize the other man?
Lee: Yeah, Raymond Peralta. [Of course Lee does! haaaaaa. Lee knows everyone! but… does he have a nickname?!]
Smyth: You know what he does for a living?
Top of the drug pyramid for the East Coast…
Smyth: (glances at table) Your shot...
{Lee puts down photo and goes to take his shot, while Smyth slips back in his pocket.}
…So, what’s your friend Aquinas doing with Peralta… just in time to scuttle a major bust which should have stuffed our man Peralta in a bag?

Lee: Why don’t you ask him.
Smyth: Tried. Had my boys shake his house and dust his neighbours. Zip City.
Lee: You listen to me: TP Aquinas is a man whose only offense is an overdue library book. Where is he?
[oh rofl. Lee is not subtle huh. And… only offense Lee? I mean the plaid shirts were a bit of a crime -come on!]
Smyth: He’s gone to ground. Didn’t report to work today. Mrs. Jubal’s refusing my affections until we explain. [Ewwwww this is just gross. Keep your affections to your self creep!] ….. Bring him to me, Scarecrow, so I can rub him. If he squeaks, I’ll know he’s clean. ‘Kay? 4.13PTK.avi_000420920_thumb
[Dr Smyth is not subtle! But his turn of phrase is way more colourful!  I know I’m supposed to be compressing non Lee/Amanda scene dialogue lol,  but Dr Smyth here made me want to include everything he says!

I have no idea if this is intentional or not, but this scene at the super exclusive country club reeks of white male privilege. I’m guessing it wasn’t intentional at all, but I just take note here that- Firstly, Billy’s never been invited.. but Lee his junior white male colleague does get an invite.. Secondly- there are tons of old white guys pictures on the walls surrounding them as they talk, and thirdly, the waiter serving was African American. Then, to top it all off we have gendered language around a female professional in a position of authority – Hmmm…  Just an observation.. combined with today’s lens, it’s unfortunate.
I know smk has done eps around embracing other cultures and all genders, I wonder if this is going to be dealt with later in this episode. Yup. no idea what happens in this ep! haaaaa..]

The scene ends there.

[Anyway, Lee’s friend is in a whole heap of trouble… and it’s up to Lee to figure it all out while being pressured by Dr Smyth to throw TP under the bus. Another one of those – my friend is in trouble and I don’t know what’s going on but if I don’t figure it out then my friend is gonna be screwed! And Dr Smyth can’t wait to use his screwdriver! haaaa. What will Lee do?? Will he turn TP in? oh my what will he do??? !!!!! tee hee… ]

(Next up we have a scene down at the Marina. TP and Peralta are having a meeting..
Ah so this is ‘Foster on the coast’!)
[I just know him as the dad from the Wonder years!]
(Peralta isn’t happy because he lost “200 Keys of prime Columbian the other night” [that’s a lot of coffee beans! rofl…] Foster isn’t happy about it either as it means he won’t be seeing profits for a while.)
Peralta: …I always figured the problem was inside your operation, but the little dock job started me thinking.
TP: Divide and conquer. One of Caesar’s talents the DEA has adapted to the modern day.
(Peralta wordlessly motions to the blonde that he wants a refill…)4.13PTK.avi_000444144_thumb
oster: What are you talking about?
[This is a bit racy for PG 80s TV no? I guess its only a second or two..]
TP: Oh, families at war…brother versus brother…
[Is this what TP is trying to do right now between Peralta and Foster? Only they don’t know it? I think TP would appreciate this irony!]
…blood flowing through the streets. Some of that nasty Valentine’s Day business in the garage…
…If I may, shouldn’t you should review your dispute with Mr. Jordan?
[can someone share with me what’s this Valentine’s day reference?
Gosh I’m full of questions.. Just what is TP doing here? How did he get involved in this? He seems to be viewed as Peralta’s advisor..]

(Peralta wants Jordan to return to the US from some island he is hiding out on, so these two heads of his operation can sort out what’s going on. At least that’s how I understood this scene. Correct me if I’m wrong.

Peralta and Foster agree to set up Jordan coming for a visit.. and TP is pretty pleased with this outcome.. seems TP got what he was advocating for.. but why he wants it who knows.

Foster and his crew leave, and Peralta tells TP he will be protected by his bodyguard
{Clagjanet says his name is Foretune}
leading up to this Jordan/Peralta/ Foster catch up.. TP tries to say no thanks but Peralta isn’t having it.)

The scene ends there.

[Hey what do you think of the blonde serving drinks in this scene while all the men do business?! It’s a little creepy.. the way Foster gives her the once over… eek. Seems to me like Peralta could see it and didn’t care. Doesn’t seem like this blonde is someone very important to him. Heck maybe we never see her again who knows.. I would love it if she’s a DEA agent haaaaa!!!]

On to Randy’s bar!

(Inside, we see Amanda alone at a table,..
Lee arrives giving her a kiss on the cheek.)4.13PTK.avi_000549916_thumb
Amanda: Hi.
[this does not look like a place that’s a $6.95 lunch! Did it look this classy when Billy came here in Billy’s Lost Weekend?!]
Lee: Sorry I’m late.
Amanda: That’s alright.
Lee: I’ve been waiting under the cannon in Fremont Park since nine. Finally gave up.4.13PTK.avi_000555922_thumb
Amanda: Who were you waiting for?
Desperado Smyth wanted me to find. The DEA connected him with Raymond Peralta’s drug syndicate. (He hands her the photo)
Amanda: (in disbelief) TP?
Lee: Yeah.
Amanda: Oh, come on. T.P is a sweet man with a sweet tooth who hasn’t got a mean bone in his body. 4.13PTK.avi_000571137_thumb
I know it. And I cannot figure out why he’s gone invisible on me. 4.13PTK.avi_000577143_thumb
Amanda: Well, he’s disappeared before. Come on, remember the time he was bird watching and followed that yellow-tailed something-or-other all the way down to Argentina? 4.13PTK.avi_000579946_thumb
[this is interesting.. Argentina huh. Maybe he stopped in Columbia along the way, and has been working on whatever he’s been working on for a long time??]
Lee: Yes. And that’s why I always meet him under the cannon. I can always manage to get a message to him there.
Amanda: Maybe he’s gone undercover.
He’s not an agent. He’s an antiquarian.
Amanda: Explain this picture.
[Good call Amanda!]
Lee: I can’t.
Amanda: Well you better try. TP shouldn’t be involved with Raymond Peralta! From everything I’ve ever read, he’s involved in half the dope deals and drug murders in this town. 4.13PTK.avi_000600767_thumb
Lee: Yes he is… But you know something? If my memory serves me correctly, TP told me that he’s on the program as a guest baker in some medieval, Dark Ages banquet or something.. 4.13PTK.avi_000616383_thumb
[food and quirkiness? that sounds like TP!]
Amanda: yeah?
Lee: Now I know he would not miss a thing like that.
Amanda: No.
Lee: Tell you what. I’ll meet you back at the Agency
Amanda: Alright
Lee: I’ll check it out. 
[Lee takes off without eating. Hmmm no steak and kidney pie or fried potatoes for him. rofl. Fried Potatoes? Umm isn’t that fries? I guess they may be the wrong shape for fries. Okay I can go with that!]

(We find the corvette parked outside a hotel.)
[now I know we’ve seen this one before a few times! ummm a lovely little affair for one? anyone?]

[don’t tell me that banquet that Lee remembered just so happens to be right now?!]
(Inside, TP is pulling racks of pies out of an industrial [but medieval] oven [haaa].
Lee approaches.. we have some colourful dialogue about pies, and then Lee cuts to the chase..)
Lee: What I’m interested in is you. The word out on the street is you’re involved in drug dealing. It’s crazy, huh?
TP: (evasive) Well, this is a town for wild rumors. 4.13PTK.avi_000665632_thumb
Lee: I wish you had just said that it was crazy. Now TP, the DEA took your portrait the other night with Raymond Peralta. Why don’t you come back with me and try to explain it? 4.13PTK.avi_000677644_thumb
(TP re-focuses attention back onto the elderberry pies ready to come out of the oven. He gets Lee to hold them, and then gives him the slip.

Foretune comes along…
….and Lee and him fight… throw in some pies, men with horn hats, a gun, a fork and a bulletin board…
and you have an smk fight scene. LOL. Lee wins! Hoorah! But.. sadly some pies were harmed in the filming of this scene!) [num num. I’m now craving pies..]
[Lol I love how the onlookers in horns all scurry away when Lee pulls out the gun. Just.. don’t forget that gun on the floor while you are at it. lol.] 4.13PTK.avi_000731531_thumb
I’ll leave it here for now.. Can’t wait to hear from you! I can only guess it’s tricky to read my comments sometimes if you remember the episode well, I clearly don’t but you can’t spoil! gah!!!
Thanks so much for not spoiling all!
Anything you can share at this point??

1/7 Season Four: Episode Thirteen- Promises to Keep–Scarecrow & Mrs King

Hi Everyone! All set to walk through another SMK episode together?! Here we go!!!!
Thanks so so much to Clagjanet for transcribing this episode – for JWWM, but also for Operation Sandstorm. We salute you!!!
Formatting reminder! Clagjanet’s descriptions are in this format- {xxx}.
Clagjanet comments are in this format-  {{Clagjanet: xxx}}.
My descriptions are in this format- (xxx).
My comments are in this format- [xxx]
All clear?! Confused smile

I’m going to aim to try and compress scenes that are not Lee/Amanda centric, due to time constraints on my part, but also because they kind of get bogged down in season 4 and it’s not worth it. I’ll see how I go with this and will be very open to your feedback guys! So please let us know what you think! 

The episode opens with a night shot of a container ship loading or unloading, and then a shot of a different ship.

Down on the dock, we see a man in a DEA baseball cap talking into his walkie talkie. 4.13PTK.avi_000103503
He says: Keep moving, Harris. Give the shooters a little breathing room.

[Is it just me or does this guy look really familiar? anyone? I don’t have time to go look! gah!! But if anyone else has the time or motivation: go for it! lol. ]

(A truck arrives at a loading dock watched on by a bunch of DEA agents in caps..  Clagjanet identifies the main agent as Agent Walker.)
[I thought agent Walker was always patrolling the IFF perimeter on foot! haaaaa.]

Agent Walker (into his walkie talkie): Coconut’s about to drop. Now you girls stay in your seats until the nose powder is in their hands or we don’t have a case.
[Whoa. I’m super confused by this code all! It’s soooo tough to crack. Like a coconut! What could the DEA mean by ‘nose powder’? gosh that one is gonna eat at me till I figure it out. –Sarcasm!-
meanwhile, I am not amused by the ‘girls’ comment!]

(There’s movement.. the truck is opened and a bunch of men jump out, and start loading it up.)
[Oh haaaa one of the men has on Lee’s two toned jacket. man that jacket gets around.]4.13PTK.avi_000135669
(A limo pulls up.)
Agent Walker: Mr. Numero Uno, Raymond Peralta.
[those caps are pretty funny! Hey baddies!!! we are here… Hiding!! haaaa]
(A boring sedan pulls up and seems in a hurry. TP gets out…)
[TP??????!!!! Yep. TP!]
Agent Walker: Who the hell is that?
(TP gets in the limo.)
Peralta: Have a Havana. What’s the panic?
I’m afraid you could be in for an arrest and confiscation tonight of such magnitude that you could make two or three of the national newscasts. {He takes a drag of the cigar Peralta has lit for him} …Definitely not the blend of the old Batista plantation. 4.13PTK.avi_000186920
[Ahhhh TP and his props!]
Peralta: Not this time, Percy… [no batista plantation?! haaaa] ….I handled the security myself. Foster on the Coast is the only one who knows.
TP: Well, don’t exclude the DEA. Please, Raymond, inspect your confederate’s stable to find out who’s been feeding the Trojan horse.
[Ummmm… It’s not just Foster on the coast who knows – this TP aka Percy knows too!]
{Peralta nods and signals the chauffeur. The driver fires up the engine as TP opens the door and steps out. As he walks back to his car, the DEA agent is still taking pictures.}
Agent Walker: Stop them!
{The agents all scramble. As a gun battle erupts, the limo, TP’s car and the truck with the men all disappear into the night.} [Guess the bust is a bust. haaaaa]
The scene ends.
[What has TP gotten himself into?! On a first name basis with Mr nose powder?!! Is he working with another agency? Is he really a baddie? He does smoke, that’s an smk hint he could be a baddie no? lol. I can honestly say I do not remember this plot. but okay I do remember the general TP shenanigans but no details! I find myself strangely pleased that Agent Walker and his ‘girls’ didn’t get their successful bust! lol]

Moving on to IFF…
Amanda and Lee enter, laughing. Lee is trying to evade Amanda’s hands a bit.} [hoooo haaaa!] 4.13PTK.avi_000238471
Lee: Come on now. I told you! I’m not ticklish!4.13PTK.avi_000239105
Amanda: Oh, come on now. Everybody’s ticklish.
{She turns and locks the door behind them.}
[Oh my gosh oh my gosh I had totally forgotten about this scene squeeeeee!!!!!]
{Cut to Francine, going through a file cabinet in the vault. She looks up as she hears Lee and Amanda from outside.}
Lee (offscreen.): Come on Amanda, what if somebody walks in here? 4.13PTK.avi_000243910
Amanda (offscreen): I locked the door. 4.13PTK.avi_000244811
{Francine’s expression now gets slightly panicky as she realizes what is going on.}
Lee: You’re asking for a retaliatory strike…. 4.13PTK.avi_000246312
{He gasps as Amanda pokes him in the ribs again. Cut back to Lee and Amanda}
(Lee pauses for a moment..) [ silent and deadly haaaaa]
Ohhhhhh youuuuuu!
{He reaches to goose her back}
[I love the finger pointed at her ready to strike!]
Amanda: No, no, no! Stop it!
(Amanda swats at Lee with her paperwork to fend him off!4.13PTK.avi_000249149
These two look like they are having a ton of fun! haaaa
Back to Francine in the vault and uh oh.. this sounds like it’s escalating haaaaaa.)4.13PTK.avi_000249749
Lee of camera (again) : …. Ohhh you!!!!!!!
[Oh my gosh. The way Lee says this is soooo funny!!!! I think it’s even funnier when you can’t see him. ]
{Francine in vault girds herself to interrupt as the giggling outside the vault continues. As she goes to exit, she purposely knocks over a film canister. 4.13PTK.avi_000252452
Outside the vault, Lee and Amanda look shocked and leap apart immediately. 4.13PTK.avi_000253453
They give each other a glance then turn to the vault as Francine pushes open the door and exits.} 4.13PTK.avi_000254654

Oh! I didn’t hear you come in!
[lol if they hadn’t reacted that way they could have tried to make it seem like there is nothing to see here but nope. they totally look like they got busted. haaaa!!]
…It’s, uh, it’s like a mummy’s tomb in there.4.13PTK.avi_000257657
[Nice try Francine, try to make it seem like you could hear nothing in there huh!]
Lee: Yeah, you looking for something?
Francine: Yes, as a matter of fact, believe it or not, Legal sent down for a tracer on the old Dunlap file…
(Lee and Amanda share an ‘ohhhh yep. Dunlap!’)
…So I saved you the trouble of looking. I’ll let you two get back to work. 4.13PTK.avi_000270370
{She moves quickly to the door and grabs the handle, obviously hoping for a quick getaway but the door is locked. She looks back over her shoulder…4.13PTK.avi_000274974
with an embarrassed laugh.}

It’s uh..
{Francine unlocks it and leaves quickly, leaving Lee and Amanda looking chagrined.} 4.13PTK.avi_000281181
Amanda: Yeah.. You think she heard?
No, I don’t think so…
… It’s soundproof.

The door’s open.
Lee: Just barely.
Amanda: You keep talking.
Lee: Alright… Amanda..
Amanda: Just keep talking. Talk.
{She goes into vault and closes door behind her}4.13PTK.avi_000290890
Lee: Amanda! That is a blast proof vault…4.13PTK.avi_000291991
(Inside we see Amanda can hear everything Lee is saying to her)4.13PTK.avi_000294394
… It’s made of two inch boilerplate.
(Billy enters the Q Bureau, through that unlocked door haaaa… and he takes Lee by surprise as Lee was focused on the vault door)
Billy: Drop whatever you’re doing. That’s an appropriately dull suit.
{Amanda comes out of vault as Lee looks confused by Billy’s comment.}
[Excuse you Billy. Lee & wearing a dull suit is just impossible.. Lee makes a suit interesting and don’t you forget it!]
Amanda: Hello Sir
Billy: (smiles) Good afternoon Amanda… 4.13PTK.avi_000303603
(hands Lee a piece of paper) …Dr. Smyth want to see you at the Orion Club. Now.
[uh oh word gets around fast! Dr Smyth know about Lee and Amanda already?! haaaa]
Lee: That’s odd. I’ve never been to the club.4.13PTK.avi_000309209
Billy: Well, it’s not only odd, it’s a first. I’ve never been to the Orion Club. Nobody who has to work for a living has been to the Orion Club…
…If he asks you to stay for lunch, I hear that the French Dip is world class.
[Billy knows the important stuff!]
