Montage of scenes, which we don't hear over Fastball's "Fire Escape." Buffy and Cordy glare at each other and campaign. The SlayerFest participants prepare themselves. Buffy places one of her posters over one of Cordy's. Hee.
Buffy comes down the stairs, and drops a folder at someone's feet. He picks it up, and we see that it's Scott. He brings up the Homecoming race. She says it's silly, but he doesn't think so. I can see why Scott would take becoming a queen seriously. He tells her he'll vote for her, and she's grateful. After he leaves, she opens a notebook filled with names, and checks his off. Then she "accidentally" drops the folder again. Heh.
The same song, which never stopped, kicks up again as the montage resumes. Buffy in a letterman's outfit, talking to lettermen. She checks off names. She gives people cupcakes. She's shown up by Cordelia. Man, this montage makes you realize what a job of work recapping dialogue is.
Buffy comes up to Willow. Willow's twitchier than Twitchy as she way too loudly asks Buffy how she is. Buffy tells her that it's okay that she's helping Cordelia. Willow disagrees, but says that there are "dark, incomprehensible forces at work." Buffy, in an overly sincere voice: "And I'm sure that they're more important than all we've been through together, or the number of times that I've saved your life." Willow knows she doesn't have a chance, and accedes to Buffy's request to have fifteen minutes alone on Willow's computer with Cordy's database. As Buffy switches gears and details the order in which the limo will pick them all up the following evening, we see that Team Sprockets is watching and listening.
