1/8 Season Four Episode Five: It’s in the Water-Scarecrow and Mrs King

Hi Everyone! Time to start a new ep! Are we ready?
Thanks so much to Cindy who transcribed the dialogue of this episode. Cindy also shared some of her thoughts along the way. Gold Cindy! I’d love to include them in the posts!! [Anyone currently transcribing upcoming episodes? feel free to do the same! 🙂 ]For this episode I’ll identify Cindy’s comments as follows:
[CINDY: Cindy’s awesome comments here..]
Hopefully it will be clear what is my comments, and what is Cindy’s.. if it’s not let me know.
Thanks also to Learjet for faithfully formatting the dialogue and saving me time. This helps a lot! Okay on with the show!

The episode opens with views of nature and…. whooo wind! and whoooo lightning!! and whoooo rain!! 4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000091024
Man on TV
: –
Ahh, we’re trying to get you more details on the events that lead to this emergency…
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000099432
…We’ll be staying with you live throughout the day keeping you posted as we get more information.  Right now, we can confirm that the entire metro area has been affected…
(We see two red balloons floating down the stream as we hear this news report)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000111444
We have learned that reserve water supplies are monitored 24 hours a day based on a special directive from the White House issued after several threats of sabotage in the past. Washington’s water is the cleanest in the world, a product of high technology and the dedication of over 200 technicians, chemists and engineers…
[Cleanest in the world?! really?! Cleaner than the Alaskan wilderness?! Umm? purlease.. lol.. but there are old balloons floating in there haaa 😉 ]
(Anyway, we see water running through a spillway, a filtration system as the report continues)
…Facilities like these throughout the District are fed by several natural streams and lakes that are directed toward the main purification plant via the Richmond Aqueduct…
[Are you all paying attention??!!! Zzzzzzzzz….. err.. there will be a test on this at the end of this post!!!! Winking smile haaaaa]
….Once within the aqueduct, high security measures take effect…
(We see a view with now yellow balloons in the water)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000144678
…Over 5 miles of flowing water is kept from the public view and trespassing within the facility is considered a federal offense…
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000156690
[Aie. Umm why do we need to know all this??!!!]
… Since 1976, the top purification center has worked flawlessly, pumping millions of gallons of water a minute, through an intricate maze of chlorinators and detoxification units.
[yawn… Soooo tell us everyone – how could they have made all this exposition more interesting? Is there a way you can think of that it could have been presented that would have had us…. riveted?!! My suggestion: Shirtless, Lee getting out of bed in the morning, while watching this news report on a TV in the background! lol. Maybe Amanda still asleep beside him. Whoooo haaaaa! …Ummm where was I. Oh yeah. Umm water purification!]
(Ah. We cut to the White House. Then, we cut to an exterior shot of the Galilee General Hospital)
[Whooo this is the one where Lee missed Amanda’s cartwheel! 3 minutes into this episode – we finally see an actual human being! Two of them! haaaaa… ]
(A nurse is seen entering a patient’s room.)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000184317
Nurse: Good morning.
(The nurse gives the patient a tablet, then heads to the tap to get some water without actually looking at the water. The patient looks at the cup, the nurse looks at the cup- we can’t see the cup and gah!!!! the horrified looking nurse drops it on the floor and we hear breaking glass. )
[really? glass in a hospital room?! Whatev. Anyway we have no idea what’s oh so wrong with this water. I mean surely there is nothing wrong with it – there are 200 various professionals who work day and night to make sure it is the world’s best!
(We cut to an exterior shot of the peabody hotel.. inside we see this:
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000208341
(The hat says (backwards in reflection) “Welcome Morticians of America”. He takes his hat off and the camera pans out.)
[Rofl his hat was the last thing he took off? I think this guy might be toasted.]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000213146
[Yep, definitely toasted!]
(He turns on the shower water.. cue the scary music.)
TV in background:
It is safe for consumption, but officials are asking to refrain from using it until a complete check of the system has been made.
[I can’t make out this broadcast at all in the background. Maybe it’s because I’m oh so scared at what is going on with the water.. or maybe it’s that when the guy gets in the shower we just see his feet – then bright green fluids. Ummmm call me crazy but for a second I thought he had bright green pee!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000235969
(The shot pans up to his face.. now covered in bright green water. Cue the cries of horror.)
[Okay girly screams of horror from this dude.. from that day forward this guy never touched alcohol again! ]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000240774
[CINDY: froggy mortician turns on the shower –with the shower curtain on the outside of the tub – SHEESH! Worse than my kids! ]

[These scenes with the hospital and the shower – it’s all so random and strange I wonder if either or both scenes were a reference to some other film inspiration??? the shower did have elements of psycho – with the focus on the drain.. But that scene looking into the mirror gives me a vibe that maybe it is a tribute of some kind- Any film buffs/historians able to shed some light on this?]

(We cut from the mortician’s drain to the drain in the kitchen sink at the King’s. Looks like Phillip is filling up a glass with it.)
[It only took us 4 minutes to get here.. Aie.. what a lame start to an episode.. It’s gotta get better from here! I mean, we could have done without the whole nurse with her patient thing! Could it be that they were struggling to fill up this episode??!!! I guess we’ll see….]4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000249883
(We hear Dotty in the background on the phone.)
Dotty: You do? Who said that?
(We cut to a wide shot)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000253319
…They did? Amanda…
Amanda: Huh?
(In the background we see Philip thinking about drinking that green goop) [Yeah! do it!! ]
[CINDY: LMAO! And you wonder why your brother is considered the smart one.]
Dotty: Joe says that Channel 6 says that even the White House has green water.
Amanda: Really? Ahh, remind him that Phillip has a soccer game tonight.
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000258825
Dotty: Did you hear that? Ha, ha. Yeah, Okay. All right. Bye-bye.4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000270303
Man on TV: Again, we repeat, the City Engineer’s office has confirmed that the discoloration of the water is a direct result of a harmless green dye and it’s perfectly safe for consumption.
[Green dye? then why was it all goopy?!]
(Phillip considers his glass of green dye)
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000273807
Phillip: Maybe it’s lime flavoured.
Amanda: Phillip, don’t you even think about it!
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000274808
[too late! but haaa haaaa!]
Man on TV: The unusual video confession by the as yet unidentified man…
(Phillip regretfully dumps out the swampy water in the sink)
Man on TV: …was found by Senator Alan Babcock in his morning mail. Here again is a portion of that tape.4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000288822

(TV shows a 20ish nervous blond bearded man in suit. Amanda startles)4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000290323
Blond Man: Senator Babcock, please reassess your stance on the Dean-Wilton Conservation Initiative.4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000291825
Amanda: Oh my gosh! That’s Carmine Davis.
[You have got to be kidding me!!!! Amanda knows him??!!! Oh roflmho (roll on floor and laugh my head off!) of course she does!]
Dotty: I think you’re right.
Carmine Davis: The Dean Wilton Initiative, which you are so determined to defeat, is the first comprehensive measure that would halt the widespread pollution of our environment.
Phillip: You know that guy?
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000311845
[Phillip you’d be surprised at some of the weirdos Amanda knows! tee hee… Oh hey- Amanda has a new sofa!]
Amanda: He helped me set up a chapter of Mothers for a Safe Environment a couple of years ago.
[Well Kudos! We get some continuity here – Amanda is coincidentally involved, and it links back to Amanda King canon!]
[CINDY: Ha ha ha – I fully expected Dotty to ask what ever happened to Mr. Sampson who rented the house down the street from them]
[I love this idea!! He had such great posture 😉 ]
Sounds like the dude cracked.
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000316850[CINDY: Mr. Sensitive as always!]
[Not nearly as cracked as the little dude who thought about actually drinking that water for a moment there haaa!]
Carmine: Senator, the harmless dye that I put into the water system will clear up in less than 24 hours. But if the Dean Wilton Initiative dies, our planet will not be far behind.
Amanda: Well, Carmine was always a little reckless about making his points.
[Really?! ha.. does this remind anyone else of Amanda talking about Connie Barnhill?!]
4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000318852
Dotty: Darling…
Amanda: Uh -Huh?
Dotty: The dude cracked.
rofl emoticon4.05 IT'S IN THE WATER.avi_000334868
Amanda: Yeah.
[There’s no arguing against that! Smile ]

Okay everyone! So without scrolling back up to the top, what is the name of the aqueduct the natural streams and lakes are directed toward to get all the water to the main purification plant? Okay okay, maybe we need to know all that information for later.. but.. I really doubt we need that level of detail. What a boring start to an episode! Hoorah for Phillip’s thirst for green water, and Dotty’s echoing of Phillip’s diagnosis! The start of this episode is cracked!! 

Oh and in case you are wondering.. here is what that couch use to look like:

No more big pineapples or tulips!
Funny that this moment was also Dotty and Amanda watching drama unfold on the television that Amanda was involved in- at the start of an episode!
And just because I can.. Here is another image of the couch. It’s very very important I share this image. Err for the view.. of the.. Couch!!! :

It’s important to be thorough in such matters… ahem…

Final thought – remember this?
“hand over all the water or your a dead man!” eh????
The survivors/ stewed tomato 2 were maybe quite prescient in their stealing of water supplies! lol!

Thoughts on this ep so far everyone? I’m excited to be starting to walk through a new ep with you all! We’ll see how we go with this faster and less detailed pace. I’ll likely continue to publish a new post on the weekends.. I’m not finished writing this ep, but it’s likely I’ll have covered the episode in less than 8 posts! If anything isn’t covered that you want to discuss do feel free to raise it! Also, I hope it is clear when Cindy is commenting and when I am. Cindy I love your comments!!! Can’t wait to hear from you all!! 

15/15 Season Four Episode Four: No Thanks for the Memory

Brace yourselves! 🙂
Back at Lee’s and it’s tag time….
Lee and Amanda’s cars are parked out front..
Cute music.. whooo this is gonna be good!
As we hear Lee talk, we cut to inside, the dining table is set.. Lee seems to have lit a burner of some kind. I see candles! Smile we know what this is smk code for! [Um potential power outages yes?! tee hee]  
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002635001
Lee enters the dining room (in an apron no less – is there anything more attractive than a man in an apron cooking for you?! tee hee..). Lee sets down a bowl of something.. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002638004
[Guy cooking for you and doing all the work? best start to a romantic evening Winking smile Lee knows all the right moves Winking smile ahem. focus iwsod! If we are going to get overtly romantic Lee more often in season 4 – I better start to try and build up some resistance here or.. how will I be able to continue??!!! Focus iwsod! I think I’m going to need you guys to help me Winking smile ]
Lee: And despite your belief that I only keep a wrinkled apple and fermenting cheese in my refrigerator, I want you to know I’m preparing a feast Escoffier would be jealous of.
[rofl great continuity with the fermenting cheese gag! Did we get a Lee and his smelly cheese joke in season 3? if so we had one in every season! haaa..] 
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002642409
(The shot widens to find he is talking to Amanda, who is laying down on his couch reading a magazine and smiling.)
Amanda: Oh, I really wish you hadn’t gone to all this trouble. I think I’m too tired to appreciate it.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002644010
Lee heads back into his kitchen as Amanda replies..
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002646413
Lee:  Nobody’s ever too tired to try one of my frittatas. It’s a potpourri of eggs,..4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002655021
[drink! drink! drink everyone!! ‘Pot Pourri!’ and no – I honestly had zero idea that we’d be hearing this word again in this episode- rofl!!!]
…mushrooms, garlic, spinach, everything but the kitchen sink…. ha ha ha..
[The shot zooms back to the dining room table where Lee sets down his masterpiece]
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002660226
…When I was assigned to a NATO operation in Capri, a wonderful old chef who shared with me his secret for making the perfect frittata… 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002668234
[I love to see him sharing freely parts of his well travelled history- plus a story not involving a potential liason of some kind! Amanda has a need to know. And.. I think Lee has a need for Amanda to know Smile ]
…You don’t sauté the garlic but add to the eggs just before you put it under the broiler. That way you keep the flavour and you don’t burn the garlic. 
 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002679045
(Lee looks so happy and contented! he heads back into the kitchen.. we hear a pop… then..)
Lee calls out from the kitchen:
Amanda?!  think of this as a celebration for Zhmed…
(Lee reappears with two flutes and a bottle of champagne.)
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002690056
[Oh boy. Lee, cooking for Amanda, wearing an apron, doing all the work, and champagne? no one could resist all this!!]
Lee continues on as he approaches the table behind the couch, but we can’t see Amanda : …
being accepted into the defectors’ relocation program…
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002694260
[Err great news for Zhmed by the way lol. for a second there I had to remind myself who he is haaa..]
…And I can only speak for myself when I say that we are long overdue for some celebrating around here…
(Lee pours the bubbly)
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002701868
…Especially the type that includes only the two of us, hmm? So…
(Lee picks up the two filled champagne flutes and begins walking around the couch to Amanda’s side)
… with that thought in mind, some romantic candlelight, a little bubbly,…
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002715081
[LOL Lee is off in his own little world, enjoying the scene he has set for this special evening, he’s so enjoying it he doesn’t seem to need or notice Amanda’s response. too cute! I think this little moment could be termed Lee’s ode to champagne and romance.. a speech for the ages! Winking smile ]
…and a little romance.4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002719285
(Lee turns to Amanda and kneels I think. but.. Uh oh.. she’s fallen asleep!!!4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002722088
Lee leans in to have a closer look. she isn’t! Noooo is she? yeah she is!!! [too cute how he checks he’s seeing what he’s seeing]
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002722489
ohhh he can’t believe it. lol. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002724491
He lets out a quiet chuckle. Am I going into too much detail?
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002725492
Yeah.. no I didn’t think so Winking smile
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002726893
Lee sets down the two drinks. then..
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002727293
he licks his lips.. and looks at Amanda –anyone want to guess if he is thinking of Frittata? or Amanda’s lips?! Smile
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002728294
He watches sleeping Amanda..
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002729496
He goes to move closer.. chuckling to himself..
Don’t move too fast Lee I don’t want blurry pics! Winking smile
He leans in very close and says quietly:  … A very little romance.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002731498
Lee leans in and gives sleeping Amanda a gentle kiss. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002733299
Kissing sleeping beauty perhaps? Another reference to fairy tales?! 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002735702
As Lee leans back we see Amanda’s eyes (-flutter into the back of her head and she passes out? Nah.. she’s stronger than I am.. ) -flutter open..
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002738304
Lee grins.. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002739305
Amanda grins..
She kinda moans/sighs.. and reaches out to Lee.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002740306
[Atta girl]
her hand finds his shoulder..
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002740306
and pulls him closer as she finally speaks:
Amanda: I may be sleepy but I’m not dead.
Lee doesn’t hesitate!
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002743109
He moves in fast chuckling to himself..

Hoorah! Kissing time! I guess this ties in nicely with that alone time Lee was longing for at the start of this episode. Awh!!! these two!!! Smile So sweet! And sexy!
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002744110
I love that here we actually get to see the end of the kiss.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002747714
Lee leans back and they share looks of pure contentment.
the episode ends here. sigh

I’m feeling quite dizzy.. so much swoony goodness to start and close out this episode. the rest in between? I can put up with if I get to see this haaaaaa – kidding!!! Winking smile 

Before I sign off.. did you notice the light blooper? I was a little cheeky not sharing a pic of it yet. but it is a transition moment anyway so it didn’t fit…. If you want to find it yourself, and you don’t yet know about it. Read no further – pause here!
Go watch this tag again. Try really hard not to stare at sexy Lee in his apron (I know it’s tough)… watch for the prop light that accidentally shows up on camera!! then.. come back!

So did you find it?

Here it is: 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002717083(bottom left corner!)
Rofl! I think I had watched Lee in his apron, err I mean this scene many times – until someone pointed out the light. I had no idea it was there for years! Definitely wasn’t me who noticed it – but apologies I can’t attribute this discovery to a particular smk fan. I’d love to.. whoever you are – we salute your strength!!! to notice something like this when sexy Lee is in full flight is truly an achievement! tee hee..

One final note – next up is It’s in the water- I’ll be switching to less detailed blog posts so you’ll see a difference I think, I’ll be aiming to cover episodes in less detail from now on -unless we are walking through a few of the eps full of Lee/Amanda gems! It’s likely I’ll continue to post once a week, but we’ll  be covering more of the story with one blog post from now on. We’ll see how we go. Hope you can continue walking with me through to the end of season 4!

Now NTFTM has come to an end – how did you find this episode over all?
What’s your thoughts on this tag? Zhmed and his sunglasses? Pollyanna? Lee’s apron? do tell!!!

14/15 Season Four Episode Four: No Thanks for the Memory

Hi All!
On with the show!!! We cut straight to a shot of a car driving into the Betsy Ross Estates. My goodness, have we seen this since there goes the neighbourhood?
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002480180
Of course, I couldn’t help myself.. had to go back to TGTN and see if they used the same shot with the white volvo. Yep! They sure did! Smile  Same guy walking along the road and everything!4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002481181

We see Billy approach a house. He rings the doorbell.. and uh oh..  Tolst opens door. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002494194
Billy: I’m sorry to bother you, Colonel Hannigan. I’m Melrose with the Agency. For security reasons, I’ll be escorting you to the airbase.
(Billy shows his ID)
[uh oh! Does Billy know? or not know? He’s in danger!!! and.. why is Billy even doing this job that any agent could do in the first place?!]
Tolst: What’s the problem?
Billy: I’ll explain in the car.
Tolst: let me get my things.
They are all smiles. Tolst closes the front door.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002508408
Billy secretly checks his photocopy of Col. Hannigan’s Air Force ID… seems to check out. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002512412
Inside, we see a dead body on the floor by the front door. Oh boy. Billy is in danger!!!! okay, maybe it is unconscious.. but then again.. maybe not!
How did Tolst manage to get his face on all the ID? Hmm..
Tolst approaches the body, and pulls out his ID.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002524224
We can’t see the body’s face.. but he opens the ID and we see a close up. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002530830
The body looks just like Tolst. lol or maybe I should say Tolst looks just like the body Winking smile
Tolst (to himself): After I fly the Looking Glass to Cuba, you might want to consider cosmetic surgery, Colonel Hannigan.4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002533833Muahahahahaa!!! whoooo aren’t I bad?! And cunning.. and incredibly good looking.. Laughing out loud tee hee.. he does think quite highly of himself doesn’t he. Nahhh I bet Tolst is super cranky because he had to go and have surgery to look like this.. think yourself lucky mate that Col. Hannigan didn’t wear ear buttons!2.17 ODDS ON A DEAD PIGEON.avi_000641274
[No wonder Karen in Odds on a Dead Pigeon was a drinker Winking smile ] Another one of those plots that revolves around plastic surgery being able to make a baddie change their appearance so perfectly that they can theoretically get away with their crimes! Oh SMK – love ya!!

Oh rofl. Seems Billy shouldn’t have been suckered by this ID..
Amanda showed Zhmed this:
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002470770
And we saw this: 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002513013
The first initial is wrong! Winking smile
Looks like the air force got suckered too haaaa..

Moving on to St.Andrews air force base..
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002540840_thumb
[which really looks like a WB back lot Winking smile close up. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002542042_thumb
I’m guessing we’ve seen this little shack before.. wait.. wait a minute.. is this the car impound where Gino was in Car Wars?
It is!
2.18 CAR WARS.avi_001699330_thumb
We saw it in J.Edgar’s Ghost too!
Here’s evil Nicky and Agnes in the van.. ahem.. sorry I’m getting distracted.. where was I.. I’m so ashamed.. Billy is in grave danger thanks to the advances of plastic surgery and I’m analysing the lack of advances in WB backlots! ahem.. ]
At the Base entrance, we see the vette pull up..
Yes sir, sign here please sir. Thank you, go ahead sir.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002549315_thumb
the vette drives on.
On the tarmac we see an Air Force guy: Yes sir, we read you. Yeah, we’ll take care of it.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002560326_thumb
[rofl. I think they’ve tried to use historical footage here as he walks into his walkie talkie but his lips don’t match at all. lol smk must have been trying to cut down on production costs!]
We see another shot of real planes.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002562128_thumb
then we cut back to a set. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002564731_thumb
LOL. This does not hold up well to scrutiny. I’ll move on! Smile We need a code word for – yep lame, lets not dwell here, moving on! How about… Operation Rainbow?!

Out walks Tolst with Billy.. Do they not know? or is this all a set up??!!! gah!!! [do I really care? actually no not really Winking smile ]
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002572539_thumb
they join Lee and another air force guy – they give Tolst something to sign.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002577544_thumb
Tolst signs… Billy and Lee look around. Tolst starts walking away.
Tolst: It’s not often I get a personal escort by the Agency and I appreciate the trouble.
Billy: No trouble, Colonel. I’m just relieved that it was a false alarm.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002588955_thumb
LOL Billy gives a little hidden grin.
Next thing  – we hear (don’t see) Zhmed: Excuse me Colonel Tolst…
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002590357_thumb
(we focus on a stunned Tolst.
We cut to Zhmed for his heroic reveal.)
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002591358_thumb
[ROFL it’s surely the inspiration for that CSI Miami guy! ][Here!]
(Zhmed takes off the shades to deliver his line.) [smooth.]
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002592559_thumb
But this is checkmate. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002593560_thumb
[I think he should have left the shades on.. for me with Zhmed – his eyes always look like: the lights are on but no one is home!! The Zhmed blue helmet head is somehow hilarious here.. I don’t know why!
oh and.. checkmate?? Nooooo ‘Tolst is Toast!’ come on people! I’ve been waiting the whole episode to hear someone say this!]
(Now we cut to the real smooth hero of this show..
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002593760_thumb
Lee: And you lose the game.
[rofl. was that just in case Tolst doesn’t know the rules for Chess? I mean.. he’s Russian?!!]
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002594761_thumb
The music cuts in as we watch Tolst seethe with rage.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002595362_thumb
Oh no. He is going to run.. yawn yawn.. No! wait! don’t! yawn.. Oh well maybe we’ll find a gem in here somewhere..
Okay.. brace yourselves for the last little action sequence..
torture.. I’ll summarise: 
Tolst runs.
Lee catches him. They exchange punches. Grunt. Whack. Lee wins. There. That wasn’t so bad Smile

Lee hands him over to the MPs while Billy delivers the final oh so painful verbal punch:
Billy: I hope you like your new face. You’re going to be wearing it a long time. 4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002614180_thumb
Yeah!!!! Ouchie! Winking smile  Brutal stuff!
Lee pats Zhmed and Billy.. congrats all around.
4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002617384_thumb
Lee: There you go gentlemen, take care of him. Let’s go check on the real Colonel Hannigan.
[Umm lol he’s dead isn’t he?!

Oh I hope the real Col. Hannigan was alive and well.. and yes he should still have plastic surgery!

Weird. No dialogue, Amanda just hugs Zhmed and give shim a pat on the back.. and the scene ends there. [those shoulder pads on Amanda look massive!]  4.04 NO THANKS FOR THE MEMORY.avi_002628795_thumb

Okay guys.. I’m going to pause here!
Was anyone else not remembering this plot and how Tolst is a plastic surgery wielding baddie?!
