Cordy wanders down the hallway and hears faint singing. She follows the sound, and we gradually realize that someone's singing "Sugar, Sugar." I assume that it's Angel singing, and giggle for a while. As Cordy approaches the source of the crooning, we hear Cary call a halt. Cary tells the singer, "You have an addiction. You know it and I know it." Cary warns his visitor to stop "snackin' on you-know-whos." He stops and moves toward the door, and Cordy runs away. Cary opens the door and looks around curiously. He goes back inside, and we see his guest is a mild-looking man. Who is sniffing the air frantically and drooling. A lot. Ew.
Cordy heads downstairs into the lobby, asking if anyone's there. The camera pans down, and we see that Angel is cleaning up his jars of blood and stashing them out of sight. These hijinks are more like lojinks. As soon as Angel walks off-camera, Cordy appears, looks at the front desk, and spots a teeny drop of blood. I'm amazed that she not only spots the droplet, but apparently recognizes it as blood. I'm just sayin', I'd assume a dark-colored drop of liquid was coffee or soda and not give it another thought. Cordy calls, "Hello?" and walks into the office. Angel scurries by in the foreground. Cordy reappears, "omigod"s, and heads for the door. But then Gunn and Fred enter the hotel off-camera, so Cordy ducks behind the desk.
Gunn and Fred are griping about work. "How much do I hate those nasty little babies?" Gunn says. See? We're soulmates, I tell you! Fred agrees, "I couldn't squish-squash fast enough." Cordy moves further back, and looks up as Gunn sets his hubcap-axe down on the desk above her. It's coated with purple goo. Fred says, "I'm gonna be washing their teeny brains out of my hair for a week!" Hee. Gunn tells Fred to turn around, and when she asks why, he says, "You don't even wanna know." See, all their stuff is funny, but the music and direction is all serious and scary, like we got amnesia along with Cordy. I think the director should have gone with the wacky-misunderstandings angle in this scene; it would have played so much better. You know; play up the dramatic irony, instead of shooting it as if it's supposed to be scary when it totally isn't because we know what's going on. Plus, we're supposed to identify with Cordy, but given the memory loss, even Cordy can't identify with Cordy. Anyway, purple goo starts dripping off of the axe, and instead of just backing up another foot, Cordy watches in horror. The drop finally falls, and she jumps up with a gasp and startles Gunn and Fred. She quickly backs further away from them, crashing into the weapons cabinet in the process. It somehow falls open, and various implements of destruction spill out across the floor. Cordy shrieks and runs for the door, but is stopped by Angel, who has reappeared in that way of his. Cordy jumps again, then runs for the other doors and exits, stage right.
