After thinking things over during the commercial break, Angus decides his best move is to slowly move away down the hall. Marcel takes his time in following. He turns down the empty hallway, walks forward, then stops to sniff the air. He backs up and heads into the game room. He walks in, turns the light on, and Angus wallops him with a shuffleboard stick. Marcel easily takes the stick away. Angus fills in the final blanks by noting that Marcel "finally found a body that won't burn out," but that to keep it, he'll have to kill his old body. Which is to say, Angus. Angus adds, "I don't think you really know what you're getting into." Marcel menaces, "You're the one who doesn't seem to know what you had! Far as I can tell, you were the world's worst vampire! Vampires don't help people, you moron!" Angus says that Marcel may have attitude and power, but there's one thing he doesn't have: "Friends." What a terrible line. And it goes on: "Four of them, standing behind you with big heavy things!" Isn't there some part of the Geneva Convention that makes it a crime to give old actors terrible dialogue like this? Sure enough, Fred, Cordy, Gunn, and Wesley have entered the room with various weapons. So, if I've got this right, there's all kinds of rules and security to keep people in the retirement home at all costs, but crowds of armed loons can wander in off the street for a late-night visit. Marcel tries to play "I found the bad guy!" but nobody's buying it. Gunn marches up to Marcel with the crossbow leveled, but Angus hurriedly interrupts, "Don't stake him!" Marcel shoves Gunn and Wesley against the wall, and then Cordy and Fred start clocking him with baseball bats. Hee. Cordy drops her bat and pulls out a taser, which she uses to zap Marcel as he rushes for Angus. Marcel collapses.
Tasers affect vampires out now? As do tranquilizers, and happy pills? It makes you wonder if we really need a Slayer these days. Cordy and Wesley hurry over to Angus and ask if he's okay. Angus says, "I gotta pee." I've got no response to that, and neither do they. Wesley asks if Angus has noticed a "small Algurian conjuring orb, could have been glowing?" Angus did, in fact, spot just such an item in his room. Always with the orbs. They ought to ban those darn things; they're nothing but trouble. I wonder if Darla's going to give birth to a bouncing baby orb. Wesley identifies the body-switching spell, and tells the others to keep an eye on Marcel. Fred helpfully clubs Marcel with the bat once more. Angus whines, "Fred! He's out!" Fred smiles.
