Spicule marches into Angel's office and straight over a chair, which I also kind of liked. Yes, there are several three-second intervals in this episode that I enjoyed. And a few portions that are even longer than that. Spicule sits down while complaining that Harmony dragged him out of a poker game, pausing to note, "All the guys down there agree that astronauts don't stand a chance against cavemen, so don't even start." Angel says, "You and me, this isn't working out." Spicule asks if they should start annoying other people. Heh. Angel tells Spicule that he should leave, and explains his theory: "Lindsey brought you back as a spirit bound to this place so you'd become invested in it. He only made you corporeal again once you'd gotten used to it, attached to it." He just wants Spicule to go away so he can have the Amulet of Assitude all to himself. Spicule insists that he isn't "attached," and grumpily admits, "I just don't have anywhere else to go." Angel offers to use Wolfram & Hart's resources to transfer Spicule anywhere he'd like, all expenses paid: "You fight the good fight, but in style. And if possible, in Outer Mongolia." Spicule's intrigued by the idea. So now Angel runs all of Wolfram & Hart, not just the local branch? I know it's a bit late now, but maybe Mutant Enemy should consider having a show bible or something to help them keep their facts straight.
Fred and Cary are pedeconferencing along the catwalk as Fred says, "But that doesn't make any sense." Seriously, is all the meta-dialogue intentional? She adds, "The cavemen have fire, that's what they live with in their cave. The astronauts should at least have some sort of weapon." Well, that's stupid, because the -- dammit, I refuse to think about this! Wesley meets them on the staircase, and he and Fred coo at each other. Fred mentions that she just paid a visit to medical after inhaling sarcophagus fumes, but that she's fine. Wesley asks if he can take Fred out, and when she asks where to, he says, "Can it be a secret?" If he's stopping by a hardware store first, say no, Fred. Cary sheeshes at the lovebirds and squeezes past them to go downstairs. Fred asks if Cary's still planning to have lunch with her, and Cary obscurely says, "I'll just look where the sun shines." Then he starts singing "You Are My Sunshine" as he continues downstairs. Fred turns back to Wesley and simpers, "You make me happy...." Cary whips around and stares at Fred, horrified. Fred spits blood at Wesley, hee. And then she collapses, falling very nicely into Cary's arms. Well, that was cool. And she actually has a decent outfit on for once, too. Maybe that was her big mistake. Cary and Wesley hold a twitching Fred while Wesley screams for a doctor.
