Box-Cam (ew, not like that) shows Buffy slide the top off the box. After nearly six hundred years, it seems like real punishment that the first thing Moloch sees is Buffy's hideous pink floral dress. He must have been very, very naughty to deserve that. She takes the book out, but Giles says he hasn't reviewed it yet. Just to clarify, they're doing inventory of a lot of new arrivals. There are two random kids helping them, as well as Willow and Xander. Just to continue the Trek theme, who wants to bet the random kids, who are minions of Miss Calendar, are red-shirts? Miss Calendar and Giles snark back and forth about the relative merits of technology. One of the kids, a burly dude that we'll soon find out is named Fritz, stands up and delivers this lecture: "The printed page is obsolete. Information isn't bound up anymore. It's an entity. The only reality is virtual. If you're not jacked in, you're not alive." Giles: "Whatever, Virgin Boy." Oh, that was me saying that. I think the fact that I spend hours a day online and I still rolled my eyes harder than Dana Scully at a UFO convention qualifies me to say this: Jack this, Fritz. He stomps off to download some porn. Miss Calendar: "Thank you, Fritz, for making us all sound like crazy people." I like what I said better. She says that although Fritz is a loon, he does have a point, and spouts off some internet-related statistics. I think I'll use the internet to find some synonyms for the word "boring." "Pedestrian," "trite," "banal." All of these apply to this scene. Willow asks Xander if he wants to stay, but he's like, "Uh, no." He calls after Buffy to wait up, and Willow subtly hangs her head. Miss Calendar finally calls an end to the activity, but Willow wants to stay a little longer. Everyone else leaves. Giles says he's going to clean up. "I'll be back in the Middle Ages." Miss Calendar snarks, "Did you ever leave?" Okay, heh. She smirks to herself. Don't push it, lady. She leaves.
Seemingly much later, Willow scans the Moloch book into the computer. The scanner isn't nearly wide enough to cover the entire page, which annoys me. The image appears on Willow's screen, and she presumably IDs the book. As she does, the text disappears from the top to the bottom of the left page, then the right one. The direction on this next bit sucks, because Willow looks directly at the book before closing it. I think she should have noticed something was different. She puts the book away. Her screen goes blank, and then large letters type out, "Where am I?" In a crappy Season One episode -- be afraid. Credits.
