According to the commentary that scene is entirely ad libbed because the episode ran too short and they needed a filler. RDA and AT were the only ones still around, so they got hauled in to do it.
Seriously? That makes this scene even more awesome, because it means this is mostly Rick and Amanda cracking each other up.
I just watched this and thought how unusual it was that we got such a sweet little intimate scene that didn’t really serve much purpose in forwarding the plot… And now I know it’s because that asshat writers didn’t script initially script it.
Whatever. They played THEIR CHARACTERS cracking each other up, at the end of the day (it’s not like actors aren’t important in developping/shaping the characters, one of them here being a producer at the time by the way). Anything on screen is canon anyway, no matter how it came to be. And this scene is cute, we won’t complain.
"Because I’d have rather died myself than lose Carter."
I have that ache and fire for them deep inside these days (it’s those SG novels’ fault, they woke up all the feels).
