19/21 Season Three, Episode 22: All the World’s a Stage–Scarecrow and Mrs King

Amanda and gun toting Krusty comb over Krutiov are centre stage, having interrupted the play – Mon Dieu Mon Dieu!  Dotty and the boys watch Amanda’s surprising performance!
The tape with the information Tony gathered (stole) from drugged Maria is hidden in the tobacco tin on the bar…
Krutiov continues to wave the gun around and yell he wants the tobacco tin. Hmm isn’t it right there on the bar? why doesn’t he take it? why is he demanding someone give it to him? I can’t see it..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002621087
He yells again..
Krutiov: Give me that tobacco tin!…
(Is the gun aimed at Amanda? It may be.. such an awful thought when Dotty and the boys are watching!)
Lee rushes onto the stage as Krutiov yells his demand again. We see Dotty and the boys watching – riveted!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002623790
….Give me that tobacco tin. This is a real gun.
[Someone is holding the Tobacco tin?] The music gets louder.. [I guess they are now really going for farce as they up the playful music here..]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002624591
Krutiov aims at the barkeep (The future Clarke on bold and the beautiful, and previous IFF agent), and then at Lee as he rushes toward him. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002626593
The Barkeep grabs Krutiov’s shooting arm.
[Aha! maybe he is not a ‘former’ IFF agent after all!
This image above is freaky!!! Krutiov is pointing his gun at us!!]
The other cast members watch on stunned..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002627394
[The Chanteuse doesn’t look like Faith Ford here? I think?]
Ah!!! the Tobacco box was in the Chanteuse’s hand.. Amanda reaches out and takes it.
Chanteuse: It’s not for you. [whatevs honey!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002628395
Amanda grasps the tobacco tin with two hands and steps back.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002630397
Whoa in the wide shot here, Krutiov was aiming the gun at Lee and about to shoot. Lee instead kicks it out of his hand.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002630897
Choosing to do this rather than shoot with the gun he is holding in his own hand. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002631698
We cut to an audience view where Lee punches Krutiov and sends him flying. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002632399
We immediately cut to the boys.. oh rofl!!! This is their dream version of theatre I think! haaaa.. I love the boys here. They save this sequence for me! Funny!!3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002632599
I think Phillip is hilarious here.. the kid has bloodlust Winking smile
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002633199
Phillip: Yeah!
Back on stage, the Chanteuse tries to stay in character. How absurd! Smile
Chanteuse: …Just take the money back.
She turns the picture of Paris the right way up again.
Soldier: But this dance has only just begun.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002635402
Barkeep: Mademoiselle doesn’t want to dance.’Smile3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002637003
Solider starts dancing with Amanda.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002639706
The curtains come down..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002642709
Dotty and the boys are thrilled!!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002643910
Beyond Thrilled!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002646212
Audience: Bravo, bravo, bravo…
The curtain opens again. Looked to me like Lee and Amanda were checking on Krutiov..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002647814
but had to come up front for their curtain call.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002648715
ROFL we’ve entered a time warp! Love this time travelling audience!  The hair and shoulder pads are way too small! Winking smile the bow ties way too large Winking smile 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002650417
As they take their bow, 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002652419
Amanda slips Lee the cassette.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002654721
It seems like Lee holds on to it? or does he put it in his pocket? 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002657223
Rofl Amanda’s a little distracted and misses the first bow. She hurries to catch up.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002658625
Lee looks so relieved..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002659225
he’s holding the tape and all is well again.
Lee: Ah, nice performance…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002660226
[naughty Lee, he turns to look at Amanda when he says this – eyes straight ahead scarecrow or everyone will know you are talking to Amanda Winking smile ]
Amanda turns to Lee happy.. [she’s so busted too eyes straight ahead Amanda – Dotty and the boys are watching!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002662262
….a bit improvisational.
[Lee looks like he had fun Smile this theatre stuff is alright! Smile]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002663063
[Just look at how Amanda holds on to Lee’ wrist/hand as he holds on to the tape Smile ]
We cut to a wide shot and can see Amanda giving Phillip, Jamie and Dotty a wave from the stage.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002663763
I love how Dotty looks around at the rest of the crowd cheering like – thank you thank you! that’s my daughter!! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002664964
[And Phillip thinks she’s a little nuts Winking smile ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002666466
(Back on stage, the cast take one last bow.)
LOL Amanda is twice the last person to bow Smile she must not have practiced that move at university! Winking smile
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002669369
The curtain closes for the last time and the scene ends there.

So what do you think of this action finale all?? As they go, I think this is a good one Winking smile it’s short..

I think this is Dotty’s first glimpse of Lee isn’t it? Other than a very brief glimpse in the suburbs of her new unmarried neighbour Lee Sampson in Vigilante Mothers? Does she recognise his ‘very strong profile’ and ‘very good posture’?!

[Good posture’s very important!]

And what about the (IMHO) elephant in the room: This was the boy’s second time seeing Lee wasn’t it?
The other time they saw Lee he was punching the daylights out of a man who hurt their dad and tried to kidnap them!

[Haaa fab to remember not Shamba!]
Sooooo I think even from a distance they would remember..

And if they didn’t remember that – maybe they’d remember the way this man was looking at their mother Winking smile swoony!

There they are! Looking right at Lee Stetson!!!
Hmm.. Jamie put those glasses back on!! and get Phillip some while you are at it!

Lastly, we were shown that bottle made of sugar glass way back.. but in the end it wasn’t used! lol!!! A bit of obvious foreshadowing in smk that was a (pickled) red herring? Winking smile No bottle smash after all!! Was there one in the script?

I’ll pause here and be back with the tag (which I’ve had to split in two so prepare yourselves) – cannot wait to hear your thoughts everyone!!!

18/21 Season Three, Episode 22: All the World’s a Stage–Scarecrow and Mrs King

We cut to a view from the side of the stage.
There’s Tony. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002516750_thumb
[Happy you sold your soul for this drivel Tony?!]
Soldier: Can’t a man buy a decent night’s entertainment in this city? I want to see a dance.
(As he speaks we see the same lady get up and turn the picture again – she turns it back upright.)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002521955_thumb
[I guess she turned it to face down while Krutiov was sneaking out]
Woman (in the background): Dance? For you?3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002523757_thumb

Lee and Amanda approach Tony off stage
Amanda (very quietly): There’s Tony.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002524758_thumb
Lee: Tony Martinet?…
(Lee approaches and holds up his ID badge. Amanda has nothing to hold up Sad smile ) 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002528762_thumb
(In the background we can see Krutiov and Mischa2 lurking- [Aie! You’d think Lee and Amanda would have had some back up or at least kept their eyes open!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002529963_thumb
…We just finished talking to Dr. Von Clausen.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002534367_thumb
Discovering Amanda is a ‘G man’ ( Winking smile ) Tony looks at her and says: Huh, you are a good actor. I can always tell.
(Krutiov lurks closer now behind the clothing rack.)
[LOL he’s creepy!]
Amanda: Tony, you’ve got to help us.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002536569_thumb
[I love how Amanda focuses the situation back to what is important.. no apologies or explanations, she’s now comfortable with playing a role in the line of duty – I wonder if this is part of the meaning of the title? Hmm I’ll ponder that one!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002536970_thumb
Tony lets out a massive sigh.
Tony: I don’t know how I got into this. They said they’d kill her if I didn’t.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002540573_thumb

[Oh right. I see. So Tony is completely blameless here is he?! Hmm!]

(We see Krutiov is very close, and listening intently.) [Aie. Lee and Amanda need to go back to some training on being aware of your surroundings! It’s kind of hilarious!] 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002541975_thumb
Amanda: Look, we know what you’ve been through, but we really need your help; now you have to tell us who your contact is.
(As Amanda speaks quietly, Krutiov lurks closer and closer! eek!!)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002548181_thumb
Tony: Carl Valentine. I’m supposed to give the tape to him after the play is over.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002551785_thumb
Lee: After the play? 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002552986_thumb
[yeah. so what? what’s so strange about that? lol!]
Tony: I recorded the information, but I wouldn’t give it to him until I knew Maria was safe,…3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002558391_thumb
(Krusty Krutiov still lurks)
… and the curtain had come down on my opening night.
Amanda: Where is the tape?
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002561194_thumb
Tony: It’s on stage, in the tobacco tin on the bar.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002565799_thumb
[Mon Dieu! uh oh… and Krutiov heard this I guess! eek!! Run for it Lee!]
Chanteuse: A little dance, for your heathen.

Lee: All right, let’s bring the curtain down.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002568201_thumb
(The music kicks in for the little dance)
Tony: Not in the middle of the play.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002571204_thumb
[rofl. Umm Tony you can bring the curtain down in the middle of the play – it’s called an intermission!! Whahaha! Smile How absurd! ]
Valentine walks on by behind Lee and Amanda not making eye contact with anyone. Hmm shame Tony didn’t see Krutiov too.. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002572639_thumb
Tony: Valentine, damn you!3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002574841_thumb
Tony rushes off to confront Valentine. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002575842_thumb
Lee hurries to follow pausing a second to tell Amanda: Would you keep an eye on that stage.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002577644_thumb
Amanda: Right.

Amanda turns to keep both eyes on the stage..

We cut to Krutiov, Mischa2 and Valentine walking down a hallway behind the stage.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002580046
Tony grabs Valentine from behind.
Tony: Carl!
A struggle starts with Tony, Valentine and Mischa2.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002580714
We cut to Lee warning a random onlooker..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002581514
[Hey I wonder if this is really an smk wardrobe lady?! Smile ]
Lee: Get out of here.
[Lee doesn’t need to growl at her twice! she takes off.]
(As Lee approaches the fray, Mischa2 throws Tony up against a wall and punches him in the stomach.
Mischa2 sees Lee approach and pulls a gun on Lee, Lee beats him to it though and shoots him.)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002585819
[Whoooo some nice determined Lee shots here of the shot Smile]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002586019
[Nice shot of a nice shot!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002586720
(Valentine looks stunned.) [Whoooo bet he’s never gotten his hands dirty in his life!]
(We see Dotty, Phillip and Jamie jump at the gunshot.) [that woke them up!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002588021
(The cast look around all confused on stage…. but the show must continue!) 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002588521
Soldier: And my little chanteuse takes my lead…
(Soldier and chanteuse start to dance.
Backstage, Lee approaches Valentine.)
Lee: Don’t do it.
(Valentine was going to reach for the gun.)
(Tony is gripping his stomach. And Krutiov is suddenly nowhere to be seen.)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002593026
[Heck, how did Lee let him just get away?! he was right there!!]
(Lee takes the gun off Valentine) – wimp!
(Back to Amanda.. she has two eyes on the stage.) [Uh oh. Where’s Krutiov?!]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002597530
(We hear the actors continuing the performance, along with the French accordion.)
Soldier: See, my love? We glide across the floor like courting swans. Ha ha3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002600033
[Uh oh. there he is lurking on the other side of the stage.. the side closest to the bar!! gah!!!! Heck this whole sequence is like a where’s Krutiov game!]
Chanteuse: You are like stiff-legged German dog.
Krutiov walks on, gun drawn.)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002603536
Uh oh! 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002604537
Krutiov: Give me that tobacco tin!
(As he says this, Amanda rushes on the stage pointing at Krutiov)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002607040
Amanda: Stop that man! He is Gestapo!3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002609142
(We cut to Dotty and the boys.) [LOL! Such excitement! Gunshots- and Mum’s on stage!!  Dotty looks thrilled to see Amanda on stage!]
Phillip: I don’t remember this part!
Dotty: She’s wonderful!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002611244
[Rofl!!!! Dotty is too funny!]
(Back to Lee, who gives the gun to Tony)
Lee : If you have to, use it.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002612045
[I guess this is a- ‘guard Valentine’. Maybe it’s just me but I think this is a tad irresponsible! LOL I mean this could be Castille!! Winking smile tee hee..  I mean how does Lee know Tony isn’t a killer? and he was pretty mad at Valentine and wanting to throttle him. Haaaa..
Tony seems a bit broken by this all… I guess it’s unclear if his career as a playwright is ruined..
Don’t worry Tony! I hear there will be a fabulous job going as a Butler for Maxwell Sheffield in a few years Winking smile ]3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002614047
(Lee gives Valentine one last glare and then heads to toward the stage.)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002615548
Amanda: Stop him!
[The soldier grabs the dancer.. why I don’t know. Maybe that was in the script and they are all confused and don’t know what to do with the guy pointing a gun at them so they just continued with the script?! lol]
Barkeep: Quit mauling her.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002615548
[rofl the bold and beautiful/ guard in 3 faces of Emily gets a line of dialogue – hoorah!]
Soldier: I paid. [Ugh.. ]

Okay everyone, I’m going to pause here for a moment – this is quite a different action finale huh! Can anyone make some sense out of this play?!
Will be back with more very soon Smile 

17/21 Season Three, Episode 22: All the World’s a Stage–Scarecrow and Mrs King

Cut to the theatre in evening, the marquee sign for Parisian Intrigue. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002384584
Dotty and the boys are in the audience, the rest of the audience are filling in behind them.
[Hooray. Great to see some more of the family! ]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002389689
[Where are Jamie’s glasses?!]
Phillip: Grandma, Mom’s not even in the first string.
Dotty: Honey , she’s an understudy, an understudy’s someone who takes over if the actor gets sick. It’s very important.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002397097
Jamie: This is going to be boring if someone doesn’t get sick.
Phillip: Yeah
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002399699
(Dotty doesn’t reply. She just gives them a look.)3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002401701
[Mon Dieu Mon Dieu! I think she’s inclined to agree with them.. so chooses to say nothing! What do you think?]
Elsewhere in the audience, we find Krutiov watching also..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002402902
He seems to be consulting his little black note book..
The lights dim and the play starts.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002407107
Oh rofl. Jamie’s words about it being boring are still ringing in our ears when we start to hear very loud snoring. rofl! For a second I thought it was someone in the audience- already! Then the curtains open.. and the set and cast are revealed..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002411511
The snoring is a soldier sitting there at the table. haaaaa.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002416316
[Guys if there is hidden meaning in all this parisian intrigue I’m going to need someone to point it out. I’m not really engaged with it… Hopefully someone will be!]

We then cut back to Billy’s office.
Maria Von Clausen is pacing. lol at the close up on her legs, me thinks the director kinda liked her Winking smile 
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002420720
Lee: You could have said anything, Dr. Von Clausen. Blood analysis indicates that he gave you a powerful new psychotrophic that the Russians are calling the déjà vu drug. 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002426126[mon dieu! a French name for a Russian drug.. now that’s psychotrophic Winking smile Speaking of psychotrophic – Aie… IFF doesn’t use drugs. They use stripes!!! Looooots and lots of stripes! everywhere! Stripes! 

Sooo  looks like Lee and Amanda have done nothing all day after Ernie the Camera identified Maria Von Clausen- eh? Oh whatev..] 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002431931
Billy: I’m afraid you’ve been compromised Dr. Von Clausen.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002432732
Maria: I can’t believe Tony would do this.
Amanda: He was probably pushed pretty hard.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002437137
[Ah I guess they are assuming this is the work of the brain bender himself.. the assumption seems to be Tony isn’t a bad guy – though how Amanda or IFF know this is anyone’s guess. Can’t Krutiov manipulate bad guys too? I guess Amanda could be defending Tony to comfort Maria to get through this.. ]
Lee: Which is Krutiov’s forte.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002437337
[And stripes are IFF’s forte! I’m going to nominate Francine’s shoulder pads here for the SMK world record for shoulder pads – okay the stripes make it look wider! lol but only Lee wearing football padding in Sudden Death has been wider! IMHO the reason why Francine was not in a rush to get out of her happy hooker number has been explained 😉 ha! ]
Walter: When I searched him, he was clean!3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002440540
Lee: He could have hidden it anywhere. All you need is one thousandth of a grain of that stuff.3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002443743
This photo above would be a good meme Winking smile
Okay, I can’t resist..
[BTW- Lee and Amanda saw Martinet take the flower reservoir and pour the drug! They aren’t to know it wasn’t the psychotrophic drug and instead the put you out drug!]
Billy: Let’s presume we have a level 9 security breach. Sound the alert Francine… 3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002449349
(Francine nods and heads off to sound the alert)
…Lee, you and Amanda go out and round up Martinet and bring him in here…
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002453353 …I’ll work with Walter and get Dr. Von Clausen back under wraps.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002456956
Amanda: Yes, Sir…  3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002458758
[Ah she looks so sad! Poor Maria, her work must be very important to her for her to put up with this kind of a life! Maybe Walter can comfort her Winking smile tee hee..]
Amanda walks closer to Maria,
[Love how the men close by look away to give them a moment!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002460560
Amanda rubs her arm comfortingly
…He probably had no control over this, Maria.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002463163
Awh. So in character for Amanda to be sensitive to what Maria may be experiencing right now. This is not the first time Amanda has seen a woman betrayed by the man she loves – she’s hopefully improved on the way she supported Agnes Winking smile [I thought it wasn’t Amanda’s shining moment but I realise others may not agree about this.]
Maria doesn’t respond. [Personally, I think this is cold comfort! But appreciate Amanda trying! Do you think Tony had no control over this?]
Amanda leaves her to it, and heads off with Lee to find Tony.

Back to the theatre and that play!!
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002470370
Soldier: A pig, is it? Am I a pig?..
(We see Dotty and the boys. Riveted. Not. This play needs help asap!)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002475775
…And am I to take it you think all Germans are pigs?
[Gosh – let me guess.. German TV didn’t air this episode on TV?! or did you change the nationality maybe? Any German viewers able to share their experience?]
Man at the bar: Mon Dieu, mon Dieu
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002477777
Soldier: Shut up, you fool!
(We see a wide shot of the audience.)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002481381
[Stock footage!! – they actually look amused! Judging by the size of some of those bow ties, I’m guessing 1970s Winking smile )
…Barkeep, another bottle of this swill.
: You’re corruption is complete! Schweinehund!..
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002488588
(lady throws a drink in the soldier’s face)
…You may as well wear your Schnapps along with your shame!
(the on stage onlookers applaud, and we see one of the ladies turn the photo of Paris from upside down
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002494594
to right way up.)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002496396
[Wasn’t this the point where the Chanteuse was suppose to break a sugar glass bottle over his head?]
Man at bar: Mon Dieu, mon Dieu
Soldier (we hear in the background): Make him shut up about his God! His God. His God that kill that poor imbecile.
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002500800
(We see the back of Lee and Amanda making their way through the audience, and to the back of the theatre)
[They must have sped to the theatre! Phew. Good thing Dotty and the boys didn’t see!! I guess they are watching the stage, not the audience.. so this kinda makes sense.]
(Krutiov the krusty comb over spots Lee and Amanda)
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002502135
Barkeep on stage(in the background): Careful, Fritz. These customers of mine could happily slit your gullet and throw you in the cellar.
[Are we sure that Krutiov’s dialogue wasn’t better than this??!!! Mon Dieu! Mon Dieu!]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002503937(Krutiov whispers something to the person next to him.)
[I guess this is Mischa the 2nd.]
3.22 ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE.avi_002504137
(Krutiov & Mischa2 get up and make their way toward where Lee and Amanda were headed.)
Soldier (in the background):
They can scour the city for me. They’ll kill a hundred of you for one of us they miss.
(in the background): A bargain!

Okay, I’m going to pause here for the moment. Is it just me or is the loud over the top dialogue in the background kind of annoying? Mon Dieu! Any thoughts you’d like to share before we continue?
