Angel walks back into his office, but then hears Nina opening the door and calling him. Angel freaks, throwing the remote over his shoulder as he dives behind the desk. And I do mean "dives." I wonder how many times they had to throw a stunt-puppet across the room before they got a shot that looked right. Anyway, Angel cowers under the desk as Nina enters. Seeing the room empty, she starts to leave, but then Angel knocks over a trash can and curses. Nina turns back and asks Angel if he's under the desk. Thinking fast, Angel says, "No! I...yes." Nina lies, "I can see you're busy," and apologizes if she made him uncomfortable the night before. Angel says that it's fine, and Nina finally asks, "Is there a reason you won't look at me?" Angel replies, "'Cause I'm under my desk." Fair enough. He crabbily asks her to leave, and Nina says, "Sorry, I guess," and exits. Angel climbs back into his chair just as Spicule wanders in saying, "Hey, big guy. Need another car. Afraid this last one ended up in the drink." Spicule stops dead upon seeing the puppet and gasps, "Look at you." Now, if Angel were smart here, he'd just play dead. Although, maybe not with Spicule, since if he thought Angel was a regular, inanimate puppet, he might start playing with it. So instead, Angel growls, "Spike! Just turn around, and walk away!" He mimes a little push toward the door. Spicule starts to grin, revealing the many, many wrinkles forming around his eyes, as he shouts, "You're a bloody puppet!"
