Tag Time- and Dotty in her dressing gown is still wearing heels, slipper heels!! The woman is amazing! Amanda remarks they will have raised tons of money for charity thanks to this event..
Dotty: Well I’m not surprised. I mean the public loves a good scandal. Oh can you imagine arresting a man like Jerry Perrine?!! I can’t believe it! Federal agents swarming all over the place Ohhhh Amanda it must have been so exciting! Ha! Mrs Coleman must have been beside herself!
Love Amanda’s response: Oh yes mother, Mrs Coleman was definitely beside herself
She really was- thanks to Amanda’s bohemian flings!
Whoo love Dotty’s nightcap of galliano and milk ( maybe she and Mrs Coleman could get along after all ) Dotty wants to hear all about the drama.. but Amanda says there isn’t much she can tell her ( which is true!)..
Dotty: Amanda! you are not much for details are you! I am going to go upstairs and watch it all on the 11 o’clock news!.. wish you could tell me more! (Dotty is learning not to bother asking! or at least not to expect an answer!)
Amanda: me too mother. Good night.. Awh!! These two are great together aren’t they!
You can practically feel the excitement oozing from Lee as he holds it in waiting for Amanda to slowly and quietly close the family room doors! Then, he wordlessly lifts the keys and dangles them with a big grin! I swear he is such a little boy here it’s adorable!! and Amanda is a great friend to be excited with: she doesn’t dampen his excitement at all and shares it! awhhh!
(how cute are they!! the key looks like a tiny key huh!)
Lee: Haaaa.. I picked it up today.. Hohhhh!!! pulls the road right up and corners like a track racer [I’m assuming that’s good! ]
Amanda: you got a car!
Lee: and errr… Well I mean [more arm waving! ] you were there when I lost the other one and I thought maybe you errrrrr??…[ Lee signals out towards the car, not actually finishing the question.. but non verbally asking!]
Amanda: Ohh well you know.. I’m really glad that you came over and told me about it and maybe sometime I’ll get to take a ride in it.
Lee: yeah, count on it….
I mean we will be working on another assignment err..
Amanda: Right.. I’ll count on it
What a great Tag huh!! Sooo much going on!! Where to start?!
It is quite a milestone that finally Lee is assuming Amanda has an ongoing place in his life- and he will be seeing errr ‘working’ with her again in the future! Purlease! They are friends now.. but hey small steps for Lee.. and admitting he will work with Amanda in the future is a big step for him! Another indication of Lee moving into a new phase in his life.. new car.. new work partner.. new season
This is another tag where Lee gets a little tongue tied and waving his arms around searching for words.. you know like in the mole where they are not.. you know *as he waves his arms around* involved!
Isn’t it interesting that Lee ‘sort of’ ended up at Amanda’s???!!!!! I think it is because he enjoys her company, and knew she would be happy for him, excited with him and understand how much it means to him.
Also, I think he wanted to include her in his joy because – she did save his life.. and he has a way of indirectly saying thank you to her! He would have really enjoyed taking her for a ride in it..but at this stage, I don’t think he really analyses what that says about their relationship- too scary!
What do you think? should Amanda have gone with Lee?
You may feel differently, but I am really glad Amanda didn’t jump at the chance, and that she turned him down – all while being very encouraging to him.. she is a clever lady! Good for her I say, he can’t just show up at her house whenever he wants.. it isn’t work related and she isn’t always available for him! and.. they don’t have a relationship yet where he has ‘earned’ that kind of access!!!!! Plus, she is in her nightgown, it’s definitely not going to happen!! Judging from what Dotty said about going up to watch the ll o’clock news- it must be nearly 11pm! that is very late to be showing up at Amanda’s window!!
When it is a matter of national security and it can’t wait 11 o’clock would be ok.. but.. to share with Amanda your good news.. while great- nope buddy! You don’t have the kind of relationship for that (Yet!). Amanda is not available whenever and however! But isn’t it fun to watch their progress??!!!
One last thought.. I found myself wondering if this is ‘the first time’ Lee has stopped by to find Amanda dressed in her nightgown- then I realised: ‘the first time’ he met her she was in her nightgown! LOL! I realised.. Season one opens, in ‘the first time’, with Amanda in her nightgown, and ends with her in her nightgown!! I don’t think this is a coincidence because we also see Lee’s waiter’s outfit from where they met in ‘the first time’ [and where Lee said his first words to Amanda: Just Walk With Me! ] for most of this episode!
In both episodes, Amanda helps waiter Lee out of a tight spot!! So we see both characters have come full circle here I love stuff like this!! well done smk!! A brilliant way to end Season one ( and yes if you hadn’t noticed I think this was the final episode of the season!)
Byeeeee for now Feedback? or Questions? Anything you would like to rave about? I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on this tag!!!
