Xander finds Harmony, and says he needs to talk to her. Harmony: "You mean in front of other people?" Heh. He drags her off. Willow finds Percy. He asks her if he looks stupid in the gown. Don't drag the gown into it, Percy. However, as many posters have noted, he's one fine male specimen. Willow asks him for a word. Shouldn't Cordy be involved in the recruiting, since she actually, you know, knows more than five people?
Speaking of Cordy, she and Wesley are packing books into boxes. Well, I'm glad to know that in the six hours they have to assemble an army, they have time to spare for this. I know the library's going bye-bye and all, but still. They both look nervous, but Wesley finally breaks the silence. He says he's going back to England, should they survive, and Cordy says she knows. He says there's no reason for him to stay. I heartily agree. They move slowly toward each other as he removes his glasses. Wesley: "No cause to hope that I might be needed." Cordy breathes, "Needed." Wesley continues, "Or wanted." Cordy: "Wanted." They kiss. It's the most forced, out-of-sync kiss imaginable. Wesley has absolutely no idea what to do with his hands. They pause, realizing it's not going so well. The dramatic romantic music stops. However, they give it another go. It's even worse than before -- they're both turning their heads at the same time and in the same direction. They give up again. Cordy: "Good luck in England." Wesley: "Yes, thank you. I'll drop you a line sometime." Cordy: "That'd be neat." BWA HA HA! They go back to the books. Now that was parody that actually worked. Wesley, why couldn't you have salvaged some dignity and left on this high comedic note?
