The pizzas land on the kitchen counter and Marshall greedily slaps a couple slices onto his plate. Dixon's all, dude? Way to stuff your face. Have some manners. Marshall's all, what? You're taking three. Dix is all, dude? These are for my KIDS. Marshall's all, well, mine are for MY kid. Dix is all, HE'S NOT ON SOLID FOOD YET, YOU PLEBE. Marshall doesn't care. He's taking his multitude of pizza slices and going off to hang out with his imaginary wife and his baby that doesn't exist. Meanwhile, Agent Sean's over against the fireplace, gettin' his groove on with Nadia. Syd sees this and comments to Vaughn that she thinks something's going on between Weiss and Nadia. Vaughn agrees, but cynically predicts that it's going to end badly, as it always does, and he, Vaughn, will have to pick up the pieces when it's all over. Syd's all, how 'bout we try a silver lining on that little cloud of blackness you have hanging over your head, huh, chief? Then she shoves a piece of pizza in his mouth. Hee. Cute. Also, Vartan? You still single? CALL ME.
We move over to Weiss and Nadia's conversation, which seems to consist of Weiss nerdily talking about the Magic Castle and Nadia stating that she'd like to go there. I imagine Weiss hauled out his trusted "I'm related to Houdini" chestnut and somehow tied it into the Magic Castle, thinking that the Houdini thing might impress her, but realized at the very last minute that he was a total noodge for even bringing up the cheesiness that is the Magic Castle and very well may have ruined his chances with the prettiest girl at the party. But Nadia appears to have a taste for fromage, so she grins and tells him that she really is interested in visiting the Magic Castle. "I like magic," she sweetly says. "And I like your smile too." Aw! Quick, Weiss! Pull a coin out from behind her ear! Chicks dig that!
Weiss is all, what, this smile? This one right here? Nadia's all, yep, that one. "How red is my face?" says Weiss, sporting a grin so big it's cutting his ears in half. "Very red," giggles Nadia, sporting her own ear-splitting grin. Awwww! They are SO cute! Syd and Vaughn saunter over and Syd asks how it's going and Nadia giggles that it's going very well and Vaughn quips, "Easy, tiger," under his breath to Weiss and Weiss volleys back, "Oh, no, I'm on fire, my friend. She loves magic." HEE. This whole scene isn't really that necessary to the plot (it probably will be later when Nadia turns out to be evil and lures Weiss into some dangerous mission and then he dies and Vaughn swears vengeance on her and Syd has to choose between her love -- AGAIN -- and her family -- AGAIN), but I just loved it. So damn cute and so well played. Hee. "I'm on fire." Hee hee.
