Upstairs, Buffy finds Doris Kroger working at her desk. Or actually, the camera finds Kroger working at her desk, and we're just supposed to believe that Buffy is there. It's a stretch. Kroger puts down her coffee mug and turns away for a second. When she reaches back for it, it's moved to the other side of her desk. The magical-moment music saps onwards as Buffy again moves the coffee mug. When Kroger spots the mug above her computer, Buffy wiggles it in the air and chants, "Kill, kill." Kroger attempts to explain to her coworker why she's talking to herself, and gets more harassment from Buffy. The harried social worker yells at the mug to shut up and stomps away from her desk. As soon as she leaves, Buffy invisibly flips through a stack of files and finds the one for Dawn Summers. She then begins to enter something on Kroger's computer.
Meanwhile, Kroger comes out of the bathroom and runs into her supervisor, who has some time to discuss the Summers case file. But oopsie -- the case file is now entirely full of sheets which repeat over and over, "All work and no play make Doris a dull girl." Oh, that's a fresh pop culture reference. And I'm not even going to mention that the A key was never pressed even once while Buffy was typing. Kroger's supervisor is confused, and then they notice that more sheets containing the same text are coming out of the printer. Obviously not at all used to dealing with supervisors, Kroger admits that she's been hearing voices, which moved her coffee cup and told her things. The supervisor looks concerned and tells Kroger to take the day off; he'll have someone else redo the Summer interview. Buffy whistles the melody from "Going Through the Motions" to herself on her way out of the building. I have two things to say here. First, Buffy had no way of knowing that her actions would discredit Kroger or get her a new interview, so she just comes off seeming petty and vengeful. Second, she needs to accept some personal responsibility for her terrible parenting of Dawn, instead of acting like her problems with Social Services are someone else's fault. Oh and a third point, I guess -- I was hoping they would just take Dawn away from Buffy. I mean, Buffy doesn't really seem to give a fuck what Dawn does, Dawn could use better parenting, AND she's an annoying little appendix. We'd all be better off if she was out of the home and off the show.
