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.
4.13PTK.avi_000152485
[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?
4.13PTK.avi_000171705
TP:
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.
4.13PTK.avi_000193593
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}
4.13PTK.avi_000246613
…AHH!!!..
4.13PTK.avi_000246913
(Lee pauses for a moment..) [ silent and deadly haaaaa]
4.13PTK.avi_000247514
Ohhhhhh youuuuuu!
4.13PTK.avi_000247814
4.13PTK.avi_000248114
{He reaches to goose her back}
4.13PTK.avi_000248348
[I love the finger pointed at her ready to strike!]
Amanda: No, no, no! Stop it!
4.13PTK.avi_000248648
(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
4.13PTK.avi_000249616
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

Francine:
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?
4.13PTK.avi_000259459
Francine: Yes, as a matter of fact, believe it or not, Legal sent down for a tracer on the old Dunlap file…
4.13PTK.avi_000265665
(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.}
4.13PTK.avi_000275175

Amanda:
It’s uh..
4.13PTK.avi_000275475
{Francine unlocks it and leaves quickly, leaving Lee and Amanda looking chagrined.} 4.13PTK.avi_000281181
Amanda: Yeah.. You think she heard?
4.13PTK.avi_000281681
Lee:
No, I don’t think so…
4.13PTK.avi_000284084
… It’s soundproof.
4.13PTK.avi_000285185

Amanda:
The door’s open.
Lee: Just barely.
4.13PTK.avi_000285685
Amanda: You keep talking.
4.13PTK.avi_000287187
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)
4.13PTK.avi_000295395
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…
4.13PTK.avi_000314414
…If he asks you to stay for lunch, I hear that the French Dip is world class.
4.13PTK.avi_000319219
[Billy knows the important stuff!]

Sooooo what do you think of Lee and Amanda’s little tickle fight? Do you think Lee is ticklish?!
He looked pretty ticklish to me!
What’s Francine going to do with this information??!!!

What’s this scene like in the script? anyone able to add anything here?

Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!!

7/7 Season Four: Episode Eleven- Santa’s Got a Brand New Bag–Scarecrow & Mrs King

Time to finish up this episode…
It’s Christmas eve, and we are reminded of all the kids and law abiding chaos happening elsewhere in Titan toys..
Then, we see Falcon approaching his office, gun drawn, ready to kill Lee and Amanda.

{We see Lee and Amanda inside, {{Clagjanet thinks they are trailing a black powder in a line in front of the table,}}SGABNB.avi_002441007
[I’m thinking it’s water being poured, but heck. I don’t know… Either way… ]- they scramble to stand back with the table in between them and door.
Falcon enters carefully as they watch.} SGABNB.avi_002448515
Falcon: Hands please. SGABNB.avi_002453620
[I’m guessing this is not KJ and BB. what do you think?!]
Lee: Well, I guess things are going your way. You deserve a round of applause, huh.
SGABNB.avi_002463229
{Amanda nods. They lift their hands and begin clapping. Cut to the toy cat emerging, dragging a wire.
SGABNB.avi_002465331
As it crosses the black powder, it explodes with much fire and smoke.SGABNB.avi_002466232 Under cover of the distraction, Lee and Amanda separate and run. Lee does a {{Clagjanet:completely unnecessary}} somersault, [Iwsod thinks it was completely necessary! whoo hoo!!] … then springs up to grab Falcon through the smoke. They wrestle, the gun fires. Lee grabs some of those loose wires from the toys and ties Falcon’s hands behind his back}
SGABNB.avi_002477644
[not looking so smug now are ya Falcon! I love that his last line is ‘Owww’! Hey, so did we ever figure out what Lee needed the doll’s dress for?!]

(Next thing, we hear the quirky Christmas music kick in. Time for some less serious Lee and Amanda hijinks! Santa Lee and Amanda Claus bust in on the engineers.) SGABNB.avi_002502268
Lee: (sotto to Amanda) They’re loading all the data- SGABNB.avi_002507073
{He stops as she pulls his beard down so she can hear what he’s saying.}
I love lucy _ smks dedication
[I think it’s an I Love Lucy tribute!]SGABNB.avi_002510377
Lee: They’re loading all the data on the mainframe onto mag cores for the trip East.
Amanda: No prototon?
Lee: Prototype.
Amanda: (wincing) I knew that.
[what do you think of this gag peeps?]

Lee: It’s all electronic. You ready? SGABNB.avi_002518184
{Amanda nods.}
Amanda: Merry Christmas! SGABNB.avi_002522989
{All heads swivel to look at them.}
[Such an image this moment.. bet it was in all the advertising for this ep!]
Lee: Stay in your seats. Federal agents. We’re here to confiscate this materials.
Engineer #1: You two get around. SGABNB.avi_002526593
[Yeah bit weird, one minute they are Titan Security and the next they are Santa /Mrs Claus and federal agents. They sure do get around! this guy really is a genius haaa]
SGABNB.avi_002529596
{Behind Lee and Amanda, Ingle has entered and is taking aim with his silenced handgun through the window to the computer room. At this angle, Lee and Amanda have their backs to Ingle, but the Engineer sees him. They react to his look and all three duck for cover as Ingle opens fire, shattering the window glass.

They are crouched behind cabinets. Inge fires again, narrowly missing Lee who fires back as Ingle runs.} SGABNB.avi_002539506
[Santa is packin heat!! I guess that’s Falcon’s gun… it is pretty hilarious to see Santa in a shootout. Only in SMK! ]
Lee: Alright, I’m going to go get him. Call Billy for backup.
Amanda: Yeah.
{She races for phone as Lee runs off.}

(Back to the nativity scene event.. Ingle Kringle bursts in and runs across the room hiding behind the nativity stable.
Santa Lee enters gun drawn and is swamped by kiddies. LOL guess he put the gun away for a bit.. SGABNB.avi_002569235But Ingle Kringle aims at Lee through the stable wall) [with all those people around and in the way? yeah right as if.]  SGABNB.avi_002576142
Lee: (off screen) Ingle! Make it a clean shot. Please, don’t fire into these kids, huh?
[Make it a clean shot??? lol. I mean go martyr Lee with all the not wanting the kids to get hurt but.. I think watching Santa get gunned down is going to be pretty traumatic for the kiddies!] SGABNB.avi_002584851
{As Ingle watches Lee being propelled forward by the kids, a tiny “Mary” walks in front of Ingle and smiles at him. Ingle grimaces and lowers his gun.
SGABNB.avi_002590256[That Mary is a super cutie! Not even Ingle Kringle can resist!]
 SGABNB.avi_002598064
{Cut to backstage where we see Lee step around a corner, holding a gun on Ingle.}
Lee: Drop it Ingle. (more firmly) Drop it.
{As Ingle drops gun, we hear a woman off screen.}SGABNB.avi_002606172
Woman: Children please. Please take your seat and be quiet.{Lee gestures for Ingle to walk forward, then pushes him ahead of him, still with gun on him off stage.}
Lee: Ho ho ho Merry Christmas, children…do you still believe in Santa Claus?
Kids’ voices: Yeah! SGABNB.avi_002620587
Lee: Tonight… so do I. Let’s go. Raus!
[Ingle Kringle looks so defeated. It’s fabulous. haaaaaa..
Okay I can see Lee knows Ingle Kringle’s name because Falcon said it in front of them before. But… there was no mention of his nationality until he shut the door and mentioned Dresden. Soooo how does Lee know he’s German?!

How did Lee get back his Christmas spirit? He nabbed a bad guy and played the role of BadAss gun toting Santa!!!!!! Oh rofl. So Lee! So SMK! This whole sequence of gun toting Santa made for many a fun SMK Christmas meme!]

Moving on, and… it’s Christmas tag time!!!
{Cut to front doorstep of Amanda’s house. It is snowing and Amanda is carrying an umbrella s they run up to the door.}
Lee
: Amanda, I really ought to go see Bernie at the hospital.SGABNB.avi_002638104
Amanda: Are you kidding? It’s freezing out here. Get in the house.

Lee: I can’t.
Amanda: What do you mean you can’t? Yes you can.
Lee: (clearly uncomfortable) Look, after five minutes, they’re all gonna be wondering what I’m doing here.
SGABNB.avi_002648948
[Oh my gosh. Lee is so adorable and vulnerable here. I just want to hug him and never let him go!!! his nervous laugh here is so spot on. He’s kinda terrified I think!  Thoughts?]
Amanda: (laughing) They’re not gonna be wondering what you’re doing here! SGABNB.avi_002650550
{Before another protest, Dotty opens the door, wearing an embroidered apron.} SGABNB.avi_002652652
Dotty: Well, it’s about time…
Amanda: Mother, I’m sorry we’re late
Dotty: Oh come on. Come on in.
[Everyone’s talking at the same time.. chaos! too late to escape now Lee!!]
{She pulls them inside.}
Lee: Hi, Mrs. West.
[Mrs West. Hmm do you think this choice of name was a Wizard of Oz reference?]
{Excited chattering, all talking over each other}
Amanda: I have to … (she is closing umbrella)
Dotty: Can you believe this snowstorm? Merry Christmas, Lee.
[yes Dotty. it’s TV, it’s Christmas and there must be snow!]
{Cut to inside the house. Amanda and her mother exchange kisses.} SGABNB.avi_002662162
[Where is Lee’s gorgeous overcoat?! booooo.. and.. he looks in desperate need of a scarf! rofl. I wonder if someone will give him one for Christmas! Haaaaaa!!]
Dotty: Merry Christmas Sweetheart!

Amanda: Merry Christmas! Thanks you Mother. That’s a pretty apron! SGABNB.avi_002665465
Dotty: Aunt Lillian made it, all hand-embroidered. Can you imagine? That’s why she didn’t come down. SGABNB.avi_002667167
Amanda: Really?
[Dotty the tornado, hey we are sticking with the Wizard of Oz references, makes her way into the other room in a flurry of words and activity]
Dotty: Because she was afraid she wouldn’t get it ready for Christmas!!!!
SGABNB.avi_002671771
… Lillian, they’re here!!!!! Amanda’s boyfriend is here!!!!!SGABNB.avi_002674174

Amanda: (turns to Lee, quietly). I’m sorry about that.SGABNB.avi_002675175
Lee: (chuckles) Yeah.SGABNB.avi_002676476
[They both look a little shell-shocked. Wha??? why are you sorry for that Amanda?! the yelling? the ‘boyfriend’ thing? Is this maybe because they are not use to their relationship being known by others? I think after Lee giving Dotty flowers the secret is out. tee hee.
I think Lillian lied. rofl. she already had the apron ready to give as a gift, but Dotty was a pain so Lillian needed an excuse to lock herself away! haaaa]SGABNB.avi_002677677

[awh cute, they are holding hands..]
{Cut to Family Room. Dotty heads for the kitchen, Joe is there pouring eggnog.}

Amanda: Hi everybody! Merry Christmas.
Boys: Merry Christmas!
{Boys rush to hug her.}SGABNB.avi_002680480
{Jamie shakes Lee’s hand. While Joe watches on.}SGABNB.avi_002681681
Jamie: Hi Mr. Stetson. Glad you could be here. You should see the gnarly skateboard my grandma got me. SGABNB.avi_002684984
[BB does an amazing job here conveying Lee’s fish out of water feelings, while trying to appear friendly and warm!]
Phillip: Hey Mom, Mom! I made this for you.
{We see a huge wooden shelving unit behind Amanda with a giant festive bow on it.} SGABNB.avi_002687287
[Lee’s jaw gives away his current terror he is feeling at this whoa family thing is finally in the middle of!] SGABNB.avi_002689289
Amanda: Weelll Sweetheart… it’s so… (beat) big.
SGABNB.avi_002693293
Phillip: Well, I built the whole thing by myself. Well almost… Dad helped me fix the legs. It kept on falling over. SGABNB.avi_002696496
[so, it’s a mmmm.. a shelving unit for paperwork? a shoe rack maybe?? umm??? whatever it is, it needs to be attached to the wall so it doesn’t topple over!]
Amanda: Awww.
{Joe brings cups of eggnog for Lee and Amanda.}
Joe: Hi Sweetheart. SGABNB.avi_002699799
[Haaaa Clagjanet, I notice your description leaves out how Joe gives Amanda a kiss on the lips here. ugh. quick let’s move on.. someone give me some eggnog!!!]
SGABNB.avi_002700300
Amanda: Hi. Merry Christmas.
Joe: (sotto to Amanda) It’s a spice rack… SGABNB.avi_002702302
(Amanda makes a gesture: Ohhhh!!! Like she had no idea. Joe shakes Lee’s hand, and then hands him a drink.)
…Merry Christmas, Lee.
[I guess this is a – you are welcome here dude! even though it’s not Joe’s home, I guess it is welcoming Lee to join his family Christmas celebration. lol I really don’t know what to do this all this tee hee. I keep wondering if Joe spat in the drink. haaa.
SGABNB.avi_002703303
But.. then I accept they are actually going for all-round happy vibes, and the look on Amanda’s face here as Lee is welcomed is really lovely! soooo Iwsod is going to try and go with it!
Bah Humbug. Haaaa]
Lee: Thanks Joe. You too.
Joe: Thank you SGABNB.avi_002705805

Phillip
: Oh Mom, it can hold 213 spices.
SGABNB.avi_002709009
Amanda: Well then, we’ll never run out of room for spices! {Lee is distracted by Jamie over by the tree, who we approaching with a present.}
SGABNB.avi_002711811
Jamie: Here you go, Mr. Stetson. It’s a scarf. SGABNB.avi_002713213
{Lee’s jaw drops. Amanda is grinning in the background.}
[Oh my gosh! I had forgotten that Jamie gives him a scarf! well Jamie, he was actually needing one! great work haaaa. I love how he doesn’t even let Lee open it before he spills!]
Dotty: No, no, no, Sweetheart we’re not gonna open presents yet. Honey, I kept it warm, I make no promises. (She hands Amanda two heaping plates of food.)SGABNB.avi_002716516 {As she chatters, Jamie takes the present back out of Lee’s hands and puts it back under the tree. SGABNB.avi_002716816
Lee still looks like he doesn’t know what happened.}
SGABNB.avi_002717817
[I love how Lee has a little chuckle to himself at what just happened! A scarf!! haaaa!!!
Oh my gosh! this is such a tiny little moment but it really cracks me up!!!!! BB is so funny here!!]
Amanda: Thank you. Oh it looks delicious! Here Lee.
Joe: Jamie! Let’s get some wood for the fire.
Dotty: Now you just sit here and eat. I’m gonna go get Lillian.
Amanda: All right.
{Lee crosses to join Amanda on the sofa, plates of food in front of them on the coffee table. They are alone now.} SGABNB.avi_002727027
[I guess they are late and the others have already eaten and that’s why they are eating on the couch like that?]
Lee: Oh well, look at this.

Amanda: Yeah
[Cue the Christmas-y music, and sentimental chimes!!!!] SGABNB.avi_002731431
Lee: I see what you mean…Christmases here in the King house are pretty special. SGABNB.avi_002736236
[gah!!! it’s dimples time! Merry Christmas everyone!!]
Amanda: (leans in to wrap an arm around him, laughing) Your present’s in the Q Bureau.
SGABNB.avi_002737837
Lee: Oh, well… Mine for you is , well, it’s at the apartment… SGABNB.avi_002742542
[hooo haaaa. is that a euphemism?! haaaa. Family show Iwsod! family show!!] SGABNB.avi_002743343
….(beat) But guess what?
SGABNB.avi_002744744
Amanda: What?
Lee: (embracing her) I got my present already.SGABNB.avi_002748782
[And he unwrapped it already! Oh bad Iwsod bad bad. Family show!!! FAMILY SHOW!!!!! ]
Amanda: Merry Christmas. SGABNB.avi_002750417

The episode ends here.. I’m gonna leave things on this super romantic feel good note. swoon emoticon

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this ep when you can get here and share- I know holidays are a busy time… No hurry though, as I’ll be taking a break for at least a month. 

I’ll aim to start walking through Promises to Keep at the start of February, but I’ll confirm closer to the date how I go.. maybe a March start! but I’ll try not to leave it for too long – now there is a promise to keep right?!
