In his office, Wesley is showing Eve's runic rock to Fred. Gunn enters and says that they've gotten reports of a vampire vigilante rescuing people. How do the people who were rescued know that Spicule's a vampire? He didn't vamp out in the fights we saw. Wesley reads the report: "Vigilante reportedly killed two vampires at a gas station, then asked the women he'd saved if they'd, quote, like to get a bottle of hooch and listen to some Sex Pistols records with him." I'm having trouble imagining Spicule saying "hooch." Fred asks, "Are we sure Angel's just tired and not, um, crazy?" Gunn points out the description of the rescuer, and when they hit the "platinum blond" part, they realize that it's Spicule.
Lindsey leads Spicule into a basement efficiency apartment, explaining that it's Spicule's new home. Lindsey says that the place has all the mod cons (he doesn't put it that way, but I've always wanted to say "mod cons"), and that the windows don't get direct sunlight. I don't see any windows, period. Which is fine, and mimics Angel's batcave from the first season, but they should have dropped that line. Spicule says he doesn't want to be Lindsey's "kept boy." Does Spicule know that there are motivations other than sex? Maybe not for him, but for other people. Lindsey points out that Spicule doesn't have a lot of options, because I guess he's used up all of the proceeds from selling the Viper. Spicule complains about the twin bed, and Lindsey says that Spicule won't be sharing it with anyone. Hooray for Lindsey!
Angel opens his eyes, and then turns as someone starts moving on the other side of the bed. It's Spicule, screwing someone. Someone blonde. Guess who? If you guessed, "some girl with her hair all over her face so we can pretend it's Buffy," you're right! Spicule tells Angel to hush, and adds, "You've got something on your shirt." Then there's a jarring snippet of Buffy's dialogue from "The Prom": "Every time I say the word 'prom,' you get grouchy." I like the concept of using old Buffy dialogue, because it sort of makes sense that Angel would replay things she's said to him. But maybe they should have distorted the sound or something, because it's such an obvious cut-and-paste job. Angel frowns and asks Spicule if he's taking Buffy to the prom. Another Buffy snippet replies: "Can you say jumping the gun? I kill my goldfish!" Angel stammers that he thought he was taking Buffy. So to speak. Get it? Spicule hisses, "Shhh! I can't be a marathon man with all your yammering!" I'd have thought that would help. If it doesn't, that suggests -- ew! Angel must have had the same thought, because he wakes up, and then starts to get out of bed.
