Cut to Buffy slamming Spike up against a column in his lair. He teases that her beating isn't as painful as usual and demands to know why she's there. "Slayers. You killed two of them. You're gonna show me how."
At the Bronze, Spike drains his beer and makes chitchat. Buffy snaps that they're not there "to discuss the choice of hops," and, ignoring Spike's sulky face, reminds him that he's there to tell her how he killed two Slayers, one in China and one in New York. She flashes a wad of bills at him and says he'll get it after he "tells the tale." Spike, all cranked off by Buffy's attitude, growls, "Right then. We fought. I won. Pay up!" Buffy protests, but Spike tells her that his winning those fights wasn't "about the moves." He continues, "We're going to do this my way. Wings." Buffy is as confused as the viewing audience, and Spike, trying to assert his dominance in the situation, tells her, "Spicy buffalo wings. Order me up a plate. I'm feeling peckish." Buffy rolls her eyes and turns to flag down a waitress, but grimaces in pain and grabs her stomach. Spike needles her about getting injured, Buffy tells him to get on with the narration, and he insists he's not saying anything on an empty stomach. Buffy grouses, "Were you born this big a pain in the ass?" and in reply, Spike leers, "What can I tell you, baby? I've always been baaaad."
