    When Lee and Amanda guard a foreign prince and his American wife trouble follows of course. Francine's jealously knows no bounds and she complains about this quite a lot during this episode. Shut up girl and go find your own "Lee" somewhere else! At first Amanda is assigned just to guide the prince's wife around a school but when she is fully hired to snoop around and with the prince's wife she becomes uncomfortable because by that time Amanda is the prince's wife's friend. Spy shenanigans ensue with Lee telling Amanda to not look at him when they talk. He doesn't want the prince's wife to know she is working for him and not just a friend. That goes out the window when Lee is spotted out the window by the wife. He's trying to signal Amanda which only proves to make the wife think Amanda is having an affair with the cute bodyguard. The audience is like this wife just waiting and wondering when Lee and Amanda will get together. The horse really isn't out of the stable though until the bad guy spills the beans about Amanda being spy with cutie pie. Going out with cutie may not happen at all if Lee can't rescue Amanda from a horse that is triggered to kill the wife. A little switcheroo and Amanda is on said horse galloping towards a cliff. If it wasn't for Lee she'd be at the bottom of a ravine right now and their partnership would have came to quite a sharp, short end. Thankfully the duo survives to fight another day. I like all the rooting for the Lee and Amanda to get together. So sweet and of course most favorite quote: "She thinks you're "I am "Not that :Dmoreless
