By the time we've come back from the commercials, offers for Cordy have reached eight grand. A goth transvestite and a punk albino get into a bidding war. Angel gets off the phone, having determined which particular hotel has the sculpture, while Wesley tapes a knife to his shin. Yes, we saw Wesley's naked shin. Try not to dwell on it. Barney is prepared to close the bidding at eleven thousand when Cordy speaks up. "Hey, you know you'd pay twice that for cataracts." Huh? She continues, "These eyes are flawless, even without the stupid visions! [Is] that the best you can do?" The goth she-male goes to twelve thousand. When no one offers a counter-bid, Cordy stammers that her eyes can "see, uh, stuff. Danger! And, and, and evil, and locations of buried treasure!" The albino bids thirteen, and when the goth hesitates, Cordy insists, "C'mon, have some huevos, guy! Whitey here is stepping all over you! You gonna take that from his kind?" "Huevos"? The goth and the albino bid some more, and when the albino offers nineteen thousand, the goth clubs him over the head and stabs him. Barney takes the goth's bid of twenty thousand. Just then, the Wolfram & Hart lawyer suddenly shouts, "Thirty thousand!" As the rest of the audience gasps, Barney closes the bidding.
After the auction has ended, Barney prepares to hand a re-gagged Cordy over to the lawyer. The lawyer says, "We won't be needing the body." Barney demands an extra thousand to extract Cordy's eyeballs. Where's that astral-projection-master/eye surgeon now that they could use him? Barney asks Hank for the eyeball scissors, causing Hank to mope since he's been begging to perform the deed.
Angel and Wesley have finally made it to the hotel, and rush toward the convention hall. They run into some hotel flunky, and ask where the auction is. When the flunky is not immediately forthcoming, Angel vamps out and repeats the question.
Hank holds Cordy down while Barney aims the scissors.
Another flunky tries to stop Angel from going any farther. Cut to the flunky being flung into the room where the baddies are. Barney tells Hank to get the stakes. Angel makes with the vamp-fu while Wesley hops around, trying to unstick the knife from his leg. Wesley takes the gag out of Cordelia and returns to trying to free his knife. I suspect this was meant to be funny in some way. While flailing about, Wesley finds some kind of claw, which has been knocked to the floor during the scuffling. Wesley uses the claw to cut through the ropes binding Cordy. The lawyer decides it's time for her to skedaddle. Cordy starts to run away, but Wesley runs straight into Barney's fist. Upon recognizing Barney, Wesley furiously declares, "I'm gonna thrash you within an inch of your life. And then I'm going to take that inch!" As she leaves, the lawyer speaks to someone on her cell phone. "Our merchandise was just taken off the market. Three guesses by whom." She must be evil -- she uses proper grammar. Say, you didn't think they were going to mention how the Kungai horn sucks people's life force and then not have anyone use it, did you? Sure enough, Cordy picks it up off a table, says, "Feel this, feeling creepo," and stabs Barney in the back with it. Barney groans and gasps a bit, then melts into black dust. Angel promptly finishes his battle, and joins them. Cordy gives Angel a hug, declaring, "I never doubted for a moment you'd find me." Angel says that he was lucky, "I had a Rogue Demon Hunter on my side." Wesley simpers his gratitude.
