Outside, Cordy's being pursued by a creature that looks like Rowlf from The Muppet Show, only about three times bigger. She runs into Xander, whom she recognizes. He hurries her away. They make it inside, and Cordy asks what's going on. Willow: "Okay, your name is Cordelia, you're not a cat, you're in high school and we're your friends. Well, sort of." Heh. Cordy: "That's nice, Willow. And you went mental when?" Willow amazedly notes that Cordy knows them. Cordy: "Yeah. Lucky me." Hee. She goes on that she was just attacked by "Jo-Jo The Dog-Faced Boy" (funny reference, although I doubt Cordy would really be familiar with it) and, displaying the rips in her costume, snits that "Party Town" will never refund her deposit now. Xander takes off his jacket and puts it over her shoulders, and she seems to warm up a little, figuratively speaking. Willow orders them to stay there while she goes to get help, and to fight anything off that tries to get in. Buffy blabbers more gibberish about women not being supposed to fight. Cordy snits, "What's that riff?" Willow explains that Xander and Buffy have amnesia, tells Cordy to sit tight, and walks off. Cordy: "Who died and made her the boss?" Willow walks through a wall. Buffy sees that, and her eyes go wide. Hee. In the street, mini-demons run amok. The camera settles on vamp-faced Spike, who's calmly taking it all in. He smiles to himself that the situation is "just neat." Back in the house, Xander instructs Cordy to check that the upstairs is secure, and sets up a barricade. Buffy asks if there's a "safe haven" they can go to, but Xander says that Willow told them to stay put. Buffy: more tired gender stereotyping. Xander: "Ma'am, in the Army we have a saying. Sit down and shut the..." I'm telling you, I really like this Xander. He interrupts himself when he sees a picture of himself, Buffy, and Willow lying on the floor. He notes that this proves Willow's statements, but Buffy doesn't want to believe it, and blathers yet more crap about a woman's place. If the point of all this is to make me appreciate confident, kick-ass Buffy, it's taken. Can we please move on? No, she continues that hopefully someone nice will marry her, "possibly a baron." Well, this Baron is here to serve you a nice glass of shut the hell up, lady. She and Xander snit a bit until Angel thankfully interrupts them, saying that it's "total chaos out there." Xander and Buffy in unison: "Who are you?" Broody McBrood, the mayor of Broodytown. And if you get that reference, you've been watching too much Will & Grace.
