Did you write your guess down on a piece of paper and get it notarized so that you can prove you were right? Excellent. Let's proceed. Fred quietly heads for the door, explaining that she's going to call Cordelia and find out where she is. Wesley says that's not necessary, and asks her to sit down. When she hesitates, he tells her a bit more forcefully. Fred apologizes for not telling Wesley that Cordy was gone, and Wesley dismisses the incident with a cheery wave. He stands next to her as he says that there are going to be some changes. He flicks the strap of her dress off her shoulder and says, "Like, no more of these provocative little outfits you wear." The Fashion Nazi screams in rage and rushes toward the set until she's restrained by several crew members. Wesley leans over Fred and growls, "You can't be coming in here day after day, waving it in my face like this. You're practically daring me to take it." Fred jumps up and says that the conversation is making her uncomfortable. Wesley laughs and asks how she thinks he feels. He slowly advances on her as he talks about how she taunts him with her flirtatious ways and then laughs at him when his back is turned. Then he gets the line that had Johanna and I cracking up for days: "You think you can do anything you please because you're connected to life, because you bleed, is that it?" Aha! Bobby Bly, Billy Blim. Got it. When Fred denies feeling that her menstrual cycle gives her special privileges, Wesley slaps her across the face. Fred falls to the floor as Wesley says, "I'll show you blood." Fred runs for the door, but Wesley hurries up behind her and pushes it shut before she can get out. Wesley asks, "What do you tell a woman who's got two black eyes?" He grabs Fred and throws her onto the stairs before getting the punchline wrong: "Nothing you haven't already told her twice." No, no. It should go, "Nothing -- you already told the bitch twice." I always preferred the one about the barbecued nun myself, but hey. Fred runs up the stairs as Wesley pulls off his tie and eyes the weapons in the blipvert.
