2/2 Just Walk with me– Through Lee’s Season 1 Apartments! By SilverCorvette

Hi Everyone! We continue SilverCorvette’s walk through Lee’s season 1 apartment.. Take it away SilverCorvette! – Iwsod

Kitchen

We only see the kitchen in The ACM Kid and in passing in ROTP

clip_image062_thumb

As you enter, on your left there is a table with shelves below and above, then the stove and opposite is a counter with a sink with a window over the sink.

clip_image064_thumb

clip_image066_thumb

We see the early morning sun shining through the slats of the window shutters, on Lee.

Really, a big print, sailing and skiing posters in the kitchen ? And is that the picture that’s later in the entry ?

clip_image068_thumb

clip_image070_thumb

The table must be able to be moved to where it is now, it was not there when Amanda looked in the fridge

Who took all the copper pans off the wall ?

clip_image072_thumb

Civil war art on the kitchen wall? I think this is in the living room in ROTP

clip_image074_thumb

The table and stools are there, between the sink and the fridge, in ROTP as Lee walks past.

Bedroom

And lastly, Lee’s Bedroom which we see in ROTP and IANN..Spy

Darkish blue walls and squared wallpaper – a room that can’t seem make up its mind whether to be dark and cosy or light and airy.

clip_image076_thumb

clip_image078_thumb

To the right of the door is an alcove, with a plant and a bench seat in ROTP but the plant is gone in IANN..Spy.

The hanging thingy by the door was replaced by two pictures of horses. Plants in the bedroom ? Not in my house !

clip_image080_thumb

Nice brass bedstead – not what I would have expected though and Lee had made the bed (because he was supposed to be dead?) White bedspread Lee? I would have thought dark blue !

clip_image082_thumb

clip_image084_thumb

Bedroom window with the fire escape. The window is opposite the door- does that mean the apartment is a corner one – the bedroom window would be at right angles to the one in the living room (or am I being too pedantic ?)

clip_image086_thumb

So what’s the door to Lee’s left, beyond the door to the living room ? Does it lead to the angled corner room you can see in the outside shots ? Or just a closet for the tux ?

Another bedroom ? If there was another bedroom, why did one of them sleep on the lounge (ACM Kid) and Amanda in Lee’s room (IANN..spy) ?

Too pedantic again?

I think the doorway where Sinclair’s sword is sticking out must be the bathroom, and it’s green (below)?

clip_image088_thumb

clip_image089_thumb

I am glad he got rid of that pointy plaque thing on the wall behind him, when he had the wall painted dark blue. (Imagine, Lee painting a wall, especially in Season 1 – ROFL !)

clip_image091_thumb

(IANN…Spy) Books have been replaced by soldiers on the top of the drawers, no plant in that odd thing on the wall over the TV !

clip_image093_thumb

So there we are, we have seen Lee’s apartment in 5 episodes.

This seems to be the same one in all 5 episodes. The layout and décor is pretty much the same, except it seems to be in two different buildings.

We also see Lee at home briefly in “Always Look A Gift Horse in the Mouth”(ALAGHIM) but only the area near his desk as he talks on the phone.

This seems to be the layout, although I think the dimensions and scale are a bit off.

clip_image095_thumb

The thing that bothers me the most is all those plants. Lee grew up with a bachelor uncle on air force bases – I can’t imagine that either of them were particularly fond of houseplants. With Lee’s current casual approach to housekeeping, I would have thought that watering all those plants would have come way down the to-do list and wouldn’t they have all died when he was away on assignments ? Or are they artificial, and would he dust them ?

But, what do I know ? (I have killed many houseplants over the years and now I don’t bother with any) Maybe Lee really loves his plants and has a bit of a green thumb?

Apartment 2

Savior (Ep 16)

Fred Fielder tells Amanda that Lee is roughing it at the Watergate West. We found out that later Lee was undercover trying to catch Edson Ballon, so he probably did not really live here, but, I thought, why not?

clip_image097_thumb

clip_image099_thumb

This one is number 555. Two blue chairs and two brown chairs, fancy bar, lots of plants.

Someone was fond of blue and brown – Amanda’s kitchen and even Lee’s first apartment as basically the same colours.

clip_image101_thumb

clip_image103_thumb

More boats and model ships !

clip_image105_thumb

We probably did not need all these pictures of this apartment – but I do like Lee in a 3-piece suit !

clip_image107_thumb

Dark gold plush couches with blue throw cushions, blue and brown lamps with white shades.

(Hey, I think this blue lamp was in ROTP !)

clip_image109_thumb

Is this an apartment, or a hotel suite ? For a few days to a week, you would assume it was rented fully furnished.

I would really appreciate your thoughts and comments, especially if there is anything I did not notice.

Have I missed any episodes where we see Lee at home?

1/2 Just Walk with me– Through Lee’s Season 1 Apartments! By SilverCorvette

Hi Everyone! SMK fan ‘SilverCorvette’ has had some fun putting together some posts about Lee’s apartments.
Whoo hoooo!

Let’s give her a warm welcome- thanks for contributing to the smk fun SilverCorvette! Take it away SilverCorvette!Iwsod

Just Walk with me Through Lee’s Apartments

I thought about Lee’s apartments a lot after reading a comment that someone thought Lee lived within the same building in different apartments because the same exterior was always shown. I thought about it so much that I got out my DVDs again (such a hardship, I know)

So, just how many apartments did Lee live in ? Were they all in the same building ?

Let’s walk through them and see what we think.

Season 1

By date of Airing, the first time we see where Lee lives is in If Thoughts Could Kill (ITCK). Some, me included, think that The ACM Kid should have been the first episode where we) see where Lee lives. In The ACM Kid, Amanda says “I lived in place like this in college, when Mother saw it she made me move” I don’t think she would have said that if she had been there before.

Exterior

If this is the outside, it does not match what you see inside very well. This building looks quite old. Love the turrets on the corners !

clip_image002[1]

(Above) Outside, If Thoughts Could Kill

clip_image004[1]

(Above) Outside, The ACM Kid – Amanda’s first visit

clip_image006[1]

(Above) Outside, The ACM Kid – Amanda’s second visit – Lee seems to have moved to a new building mid-episode !

Or more likely, did they just add the wrong the outside view in post-production ? Because they re-arranged the episodes ?

clip_image008[1]

(Above) Outside – Never Look A Gift Horse (NLAGHITM),Saved by the Bells (SBTB), Remembrance of Things Past, and IANN…Spy

clip_image010[1]

(Above) NLAGHITM – this shot seems to imply that Lee lives on the top floor but those windows do not match the inside !

So did Lee move after The ACM Kid, into an apartment with a very similar layout and colour scheme, in this newer building? Or did TPTB just decide they liked the outside of this building better?

As Lee climbed up to the bedroom window and Sinclair (ROTP) and Amanda (in IANN..Spy) climbed down the fire escape, where is that ? Was Lee’s apartment really supposed to be facing the side street, with the fire escape and laneway below it at the back ? Or am I getting picky and asking questions that I should not be bothered about ? (It’s TV-land after all, things don’t have to make sense or be logical!)

Apartment 1

I think that Lee lived in the same apartment each time we see it in early Season 1 but the outside of the building shown as a scene establisher changes after(during) The ACM Kid. Of course, he could have moved to another one any time after episode 13. Also there is no consistency in which floor he lives on, sometimes the establishing scene zooms in on the top floor, other times it focuses lower down.

The following shots [for the two posts] are what we see in If Thoughts Could Kill (Ep 3), The ACM Kid (Ep 5), Saved by the Bells (Ep 8), Remembrance of Things Past (Ep 11) and I Am Not Now, Nor Have I Ever Been a Spy (Ep 13). There is also a brief visit to Lee’s apartment in Never Look A Gift Horse in the Mouth (NLAGHITM) (Ep 6).

Entry

The front door is in a separate entryway with a mirror opposite between the kitchen and the living room.

The inside of the front door, was white in ITCK and The ACM Kid, but has been replaced by a wooden one in ROTP.

clip_image012

ITCK – This is Lee’s neighbour Lydia Lowell, I think the apartment was 805, hard to capture clearly – but there is not eight floors in the first building we saw.

I know Lee does not pickup his stuff, but leaving a coat hanger hanging off the statue on the wall ?

clip_image014[1]

It is 805, (ACM Kid)

clip_image016

And in Saved By The Bells (SBTB)

clip_image018

(ROTP) The apartment across the hall, has a matching door with 804 – did the whole building get new doors ?

clip_image020

So we are to assume that Lee lived in apartment 805 through all the episodes in which we see it in Season 1.

clip_image022

See the mirror behind Amanda as she comes to the kitchen

clip_image024

and stands at the door. (And is she wearing the same clothes ? ACM Kid and ROTP)

We only see the doorman (Floyd Feller) in ROTP

Living Room

From the entry hall, turn to your right into the living room.

clip_image026

clip_image028

clip_image030

As you enter the room, there is a bookcase to your right (with a big shiny plaque over it) and the big window beyond it.

This window does not look like the bay window shown on the outside in ITCK.

clip_image032

On the other side of the window is Lee’s roll top desk. A typewriter on the desk, just like one I used to have.

I think some of the photos over the desk can later be seen in the Q-Bureau.

Do trees grow like that, all the way up close to the 8th floor windows ?

In front of the window, is a brass vase and a small table with the bronco statue and Tibetan Ram’s Horn. Later there are different things on the table – ice bucket ? and a lamp in ROTP.

In ICTK, ACM Kid and SBTB, there’s a also telescope in front of the window – stargazing in the middle of DC ? Spying on his neighbours ? To hang clothes on ? See how far it sits out from the window – I’d be always tripping over it ! I guess the telescope would have been difficult to navigate around during the sword fight, so it’s not there in ROTP.

clip_image034

clip_image036

Do you keep your coffee pot on your desk in the living room ? Rough night with Alexei ?

At the end of the room, in a shallow alcove, is a white door to the bedroom (in ITCK and ACM Kid) but like the front door, by ROTP and IANN..a Spy it has been replaced by a wooden door that opens the other way.

clip_image038

(ITCK)

clip_image040

(The ACM Kid)

clip_image042

(IANN..Spy)

clip_image044

From the kitchen towards the bedroom (ROTP)

clip_image046

On the other side of the bedroom door is a bookshelf, and a corner of wall, then sometimes another shelf unit or a shrub, then the fish tank ? We really don’t see that side too much. I love the white unicorn on the top shelf! Wasn’t that picture next to the fridge in The ACM Kid ?

clip_image048

In the corner beside Amanda is another shelf unit thing (ITCK) whereas in (ROTP, and in ACM Kid) there is only a shrub.

clip_image050

Looking from the desk, across to the kitchen as Lee enters from door (ACM Kid)

clip_image052

clip_image054

So to the left of the doorway is the fireplace and then the built-in shelves with stereo and albums and that uncomfortable looking chair and a lamp.

In the ACM Kid there is a large model ship on the mantel, with a clock beside it on the wall.

clip_image056

In ROTP, the model ship has been conveniently replaced to 2 mounted swords on the wall and trophies on the mantel.

A brown couch and oval coffee table, and a sofa table behind the couch are in the middle of the room.

clip_image058

In Saved By the Bells, the fish tank sits opposite the window, near the end of the couch, but do we ever see it at any other time ?

clip_image060

In Remembrance of Things Past, the scatter rugs have been replaced by an ugly brown nylon carpet (so the fuse burns ? or were rugs a trip hazard for the sword fight ?) And there is a light coloured square lamp table, with lamp, at the end of the couch.

I would really appreciate your thoughts and comments, especially if there is anything I did not notice.

Iwsod: We’ll pause here for the moment.. and in the next post we’ll continue our walk through Lee’s Season 1 apartment, with a close inspection of Lee’s Kitchen, Bedroom… plus a surprise apartment! Smile 

15/15 Season Three, Episode 19: The Boy Who Could Be King- Scarecrow and Mrs King

Back to Jasands for creative food & beverages, with some Jazz thrown in.
We find Eddie being wheeled around..
King Eddie: It’s true! Cap D’Far was first settled by swashbucklers…  [French Swashbucklers maybe?😉 ]
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002632132_thumb
…Mutinous swashbucklers mind you, but bloody big heroes all of them. Well, we’ve all got it in the blood.
Terry: Guess they weren’t too hot at dodging bullets.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002638605_thumb
Sandra
: Your father always took chances. Some things never change.
[I imagine it’s a relief for Sandra to be able to talk about his father to Terry.. ]
King Eddie: Yes, and some things do. Did you ask your Mom?
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002650150_thumb
Sandra
: Ask me what?
Terry: Well, the King –
(
Terry catches himself and smiles.. Eddie smiles a little too.) [Awh!]
Terry corrects himself: …
Dad – wants me to come to Cap D’Far. I’d really like to go, Mom.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002654154_thumb
Sandra
: For how long?
Terry: A week, in June.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002658158_thumb
King Eddie
: Yes, the surfing is rotten the rest of the year… [rofl it’s only good for one week in June? Winking smile ]
(to Sandra):
…What are you doing in June?
Terry watches his mum smile a big smile..
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002664898_thumb
[do you think he is wondering if his folks will reconnect?!]
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002665398_thumb
And they all smile! 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002665699_thumb
Smilies smilies!:):)😀
Eddie catches sight of Billy.. and gives him a hearty hello.. lol..
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002666599_thumb
Eddie is certainly an expressive guy!
…Hey Billy! My man! Hey, it’s an hour before curtain, bro.
[Why do I suddenly have Phil Collins in my head? Oh yeah.. Billy!!! Billy don’t you lose my number! has someone done a fan vid of that?!  sorry! I digress. Focus Iwsod!]
Just off to the side, Lee and Amanda join them.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002671471_thumb
Whooo see Lee’s arm around Amanda?!!
Billy: Sorry Eddie, Billy Bluenote is retired.
[I’m glad Kiwismh was able to transcribe what Billy said here because all I could hear was blahh blahhghaogayhgogh.. as I saw this:
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002671971_thumb
This arm still around Amanda..
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002673173_thumb
And as Lee comes around the side..
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002673273_thumb
See that? Amanda goes to put her arm around Lee also!
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002673373_thumb
Squeeeee!  Okay focus Iwsod.. someone is still talking.. ]
King Eddie: Oh, well, not if his country wants some of the tantalum I’ve got. [whoo blackmail! ]
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002676076_thumb
Billy quietly: No way, man, no way. 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002680680_thumb
Eddie goes to blow his own trumpet.. ahem.. [get it?!]3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002682182_thumb
I think Eddie might be partly serious!
Billy looks over at Lee.. with a smile.. I’m thinking yes way. You? I think Billy just needed an excuse to keep playing Winking smile
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002683983_thumb
We see Lee smiling at Billy Blue Note.. Amanda watches Lee.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002684784_thumb
Lee looks back at Amanda.. 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002685685_thumb
They both look at Billy. Aie. they’re such a couple! Get together already!!!   3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002686486_thumb
I gotta say, Lee especially is looking very happy with life at the moment!
We get a quick edit, to find Billy not resisting the blackmail.. at all!  Winking smile [errr for the sake of all that tantalum! ahem.. ]
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002689189_thumb
Lee from the audience calls out: 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002689389_thumb
Lee: I see you took a firm stand, Billy Bluenote… Nice work.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002691491_thumb(Lee gives Billy a thumbs up)3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002692192_thumb
[rofl! this shot is hilarious!!!! I think Lee is drunk on Love!!]
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002692892_thumb
Oi! My oh my! what’s going on here??!!!! Just look at how they are sitting together. she’s practically on his lap, enveloped in his arms.. in front of Billy??!!! I’ll come back to this..

Billy: If we’re going to keep diplomatic relations with Cap D’Far, you’re gonna have to learn how to play this thing.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002694794_thumb
I’m thinking Lee looks pretty content just the way he is!
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002697197_thumb
Everyone gives Billy’s comment a round of applause.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002699833_thumb
King Eddie
: One, two, three.
Eddie and Billy happily play.. 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002708942_thumb
Okay- now here is some trumpet face! Winking smile
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002709342_thumb
And we cut back to Lee and Amanda.. enveloped together again.
Amanda turns to look at Lee.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002709642_thumb
So Lee turns to look at Amanda.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002710443_thumb
And.. Iwsod turns to Jelly. [hwo abuot yuo?]3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002710643_thumb
Amanda quietly: I got a feeling everybody’s going to live happily ever after.
While Amanda manages to string together a coherent sentence here… [she’s my hero.. taking a bullet is nothing.. try doing this while Lee gives you that look?! That’s tough!!]
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002711144_thumb
As Amanda says this, Lee takes his time and looks at Amanda’s mouth.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002711444_thumb
Gah! Kiss her! Kiss her! He’s thinkin it..
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002711845_thumb
While you’re transfixed by Lee watching Amanda’s mouth – did you see what their hands are doing while Amanda talks?!!
Their fingers are mingling and playing! oh my.. Hooooo Haaaa!
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002712212_thumb
Okay.. seems Lee looks at her lips twice. [yes I can manage to count to two in these circumstances. Just.] He didn’t look at the boudoir magazine twice!! Smile 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002712746_thumb
They’re fingers are dancing cheek to cheek! [I always wanted to see them dance again!]
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002713146_thumb
They smile at each other and Amanda leans in.. oh yes.. oh my.. Lee looks at her mouth again! yes one plus two times! (Iwsod can no longer do the maths!) bhugahabnsbawhbaobh

Okay, I can see Amanda is now showing that same contentment and joy – how lovely! 3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002713446_thumb
She is freely showing it to Lee too Smile
Not to mention her talk of happily ever after. You don’t get more committed to forever than that no?
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002714214_thumb
I didn’t think it possible.. but Lee’s grin gets bigger Smile
Lee turns back to Billy to enjoy the show.. and Amanda enjoys the show right next to her just a little longer.
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002714948_thumb
Can’t say I blame her.
Try rewinding this scene.. and just watch their fingers!! Hooo haaaaaaaa! it’s quick.. but it’s swoony!

The episode ends with BBN playing his saxophone Smile When I stop and think about it, this episode tells us quite a bit about Billy.. no?
3.19 THE BOY WHO COULD BE KING.avi_002720220

Life’s good! Everyone is happy! Crowley got shot hooray! Beige baddie was so beige he actually become entertaining! and diplomatic relations with Cap D’far are very healthy indeed! Overall, I’ve enjoyed this ep! I wouldn’t rank it a favourite, but there are some favourite moments for sure! thoughts?

Will Sandra and Eddie get back together? I admit, I’m relieved there is no overt mention of this.. that would have been way too OTT fairy tale for me! C grade Grace Kelly and Prince Rainer! I think it’s left open as a possibility..
What do you think?
Would all that Miles Davis and sand still be too much for Sandra? Hmm.. nothing is certain.. except it seems Eddie and Terry have a chance to build a relationship now.. and Lee and Amanda- what are they building?!

I can’t believe how intimate and expressive they are here!! I guess we really didn’t see them much all episode.. and it was building up to this!
I wonder if they are so expressive because they are in public and can’t fully take the leap here and kiss and change everything? Though really.. things are seeming pretty changed anyway no?

Do you ask yourself what’s holding them back now?
I can imagine if I was watching this first airing I would have been screaming at the tv – they’re gonna kiss!!!! and.. Nope.. no kiss! but.. There is still plenty to enjoy… and it seems like any time now they are gonna take that plunge.
Maybe in the next ep!!!!

Still, I can’t shake the vibe that this is a bit sudden.. It’s almost like the words have been said.. but errr.. they haven’t have they? 

Okay, maybe they have said the words in an indirect way. Lee offered to co-sign that equals: I’m committed to you for a long time legally?!
And.. Amanda’s comment about living happily ever after – well that’s about her and Lee really isn’t it? so she is saying it too? But she hadn’t said that yet earlier when they were standing there with their arms around each other?!  
Sort of?? Gah.. maybe it’s just me but it still seems too out of the blue.  I wonder if something has happened with the episode order here. It’s very much in the back of my mind.. But.. I can’t really form a view on it till I’ve seen to the end of season 3. I don’t really remember what’s still to come in season 3.
Okay had to look it up. There are three more episodes to go till the end of season 3. Wow!!! Not many!!

I can totally see Lee and Amanda stopping off at Cap D’far sometime for some surfing. ahem. And.. attending the coronation of Terry.. while rubbing it in to Francine.. ahem. Sorry I digress. that’s as close as I get to fan fic!

Thanks to Kiwismh for your valiant effort getting this transcript to me in record time. You’ve been my hero!
Thanks also to Learjet for helping with formatting the dialogue. A total godsend!!

Soooo what’s next?
Umm dead men leave no trails – gosh.. I can’t remember it!!!! I look forward to walking through that with you all! Everyone still with us?? or are you cursing Lee and Amanda’s flirty teasing of the audience here and have swooned onto the floor?! haaaa! Can’t wait to hear from you!!!!!!
