The "Night Crawler" tag. The surprised look on Amanda’s face when she sees the familiar Tiffany box on her desk, ‘it wasn’t a dream,’ she's thinking, as she opens the box and holds up the ring, not even looking at Lee whom she is aware has just entered the room. Lee nonchalantly walks in front of her, then sits on the edge of her desk, gently taking the ring from her, he slowly slips it onto her ring finger, passion filled in his eyes (I love how Bruce’s eyes can change color), they both smile at each other and then kiss. Of course, then you have the cheesy close-up of the ring, but up to then it is all brilliant. I love how there was no dialogue; it was all done with facial expression, body language, and their eyes.
The tag in the second part of "Stemwinder." Not only do we get Lee knocking on her window, blowing her a kiss and mouthing "I love you," but we get a passionate kiss from both of them after she runs into his arms and an extra bonus tosh grab. Love it!!
In "Ship of Spies" I love how the kiss took them both by surprise. The fear in Lee’s eyes when the preacher tells him he can kiss the bride, the sweet kiss they give each other, and then Lee goes in for a second kiss. The surprised look on both their faces following the kiss, you can see it affected them both.
Hands down, "Utopia Now," which could also fall into another category, ‘how dare the writers do that to us.’
In "Over the Limit"—Lee scans the crowd looking for Amanda, practically runs to her and pulls her into that 'I’m grateful you weren’t hurt' hug.
"J. Edgar Ghost"—they are both leaning over his desk just inches any from each other, and he smiles showing those amazing dimples.
The look on Amanda and Mrs. Marston’s face after Lee volunteers to co-sign in "The Boy Who Could Be King."
"Flight for Freedom"—lots of hand holding in this episode and it looks so natural and right.
"The Triumvirate"—Lee secretly steals glances at Amanda and then gets caught and tries to cover it up. He is soooo gone.
The looks, smiles, and cuddling in the tag from "The Boy Who Could Be King."
"There Goes the Neighborhood—their first argument as man and wife in their cozy little kitchen.
"To Catch a Mongoose"—the whole bad cop, good cop scene with Conrad, followed by Lee’s line, “She has her own style.” Too funny.
"Service Above and Beyond"—Lee getting jealous in the van while listening in on James and Amanda’s conversation. “Can you believe it? I had a better line in high school,” followed by his little rant in the bathroom with Amanda sounding like a jealous person.
“I love you, Mrs. Stetson,” in "Mission of Gold." It was so sweet and sexy and you know he is very much on love with his wife.
The look on Lee’s face following the slap in "Burn Out."
The look on Lee’s face while he’s sitting next to Amanda’s bed in "Mission of Gold." He looks so lost and my heart just breaks for him.
The tag for "Magic Bus."
Lee: Care to change your opinion?
Amanda: That is so petty.
The “Don’t even try to explain. It will only make it worse,” when Francine walks in on them in "Need to Know."
"The Long Christmas Eve"—after Lee says he’s not all right and then falls back, Amanda grabs him, opens his jacket, sees the blood, he starts to lose consciousness, and she puts her cheek on his forehead. Then she risks everything to call a truce, so she can get the first aid kit to help Lee. It says a lot about their relationship even this early on.
Lee in a tux and Amanda in a beautiful white evening gown entering the British embassy in "The Three Faces of Emily."
Don’t really have hair favorites. I tend to prefer Lee’s hair season three and four. I like the longer look, the I could run my fingers through his hair all day look. With Amanda it’s more about what I don’t like, and that is the season two hair-don’t. I almost can't make it through those episodes.
"The Legend of Das Geisterschloss" ramble. “Oh no, Sir. We're not a couple. We're together, but we're not a couple. I mean we're friends. We're just a couple of friends.” And the look on Lee’s face as he tried to follow that.
Lee grabbing Amanda and kissing her before he leaves in Dead "Men Leave No Trails."
“Just walk with me.” Out of desperation in the beginning, to finding your soul mate at the end.
“Oh, my gosh!” It’s so Amanda, and even saved her life.
“Parts I like a lot,” conversation in "The Triumvirate."
"Dead Men Leave No Trails." They are sitting on the couch, the smokey looks they give each other, them both putting their plates down, and how he relevantly says her name before they almost kiss, only to be interrupted. . . again.
The car scene in "Filming Raul." The way she says Lee, expresses Amanda's mood and the situation perfectly.
When she screams “Lee!” in "Night Crawler" and then the look she gives him when she realizes he’s okay.
"Saved by the Bells" when he is willing to risk treason because he “I can’t live with this one.” After he saves her, there is a sweet moment of comfort scene.
"Stemwinder" heard it a couple of times this episode, including the first time, followed by her asking, “What?” Have to smile, because I said “What?” to my husband the first time he said it to me, I wasn’t prepared for it and it caught me off guard.
"Bad Timing." Not only do we get Lee and Amanda necking on the sofa, but mother and the boys come home, Lee tries to dash off, but Amanda tells him, “No, we need practice is this, too.” It’s so cute how they try to present themselves, and she asks him if he’s ready, followed by the ‘really, we weren’t up to anything’ look.
The tag from "Service Above and Beyond" and the line “I carried you,” followed by Amanda’s gushing and repeating the line.
"She doesn't touch him" scene in "Affair at Bromfield Hall." So awkward, and yet so great.
“Mother, I’m a spy,” in "Playing Possum." Not really a cover story, but the line delivery is fantastic and then her mother doesn't believe her.
Jumping into the lake in "The Legend of Das Geisterschloss." I just love how Lee grabs her hand and without hesitation jumps into the lake, followed by a wet, open shirt Lee in the following scene.
Lee coming through the window in "Always Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth."
“I love you.”
*Sigh. Don’t think we heard it enough.
"All the World’s A Stage," enough said.
I love season one for the comedy, season two for the European locations, and season four for the love and commitment. Season four has three of my all-time favorite episodes; "Night Crawler," "Bad Timing," and "Stemwinder," but my favorite season is season three, leading up to Lee and Amanda falling in love and of course, Lee locking out the rest of the world, and finally kissing Amanda.
