Very Bad Things. I honestly have no recollection of that movie whatsoever.
City Hall. Yay! The Mayor is practicing his golf putting as Twitchy looks on. He bemoans a missed shot. "I swear, I would sell my soul for a decent short game. Of course, it's a little late for that. I don't suppose I could offer your soul, huh? Will you help me on the green?" Twitchy makes a note to himself to update his will for the third time this month. The Mayor: "I'm just funnin'." Best. Villain. Ever. The Mayor has just learned that Spike is in town. Twitchy explains about the incident at the magic shop. The Mayor fondly reminisces about Spike's "shenanigans." Twitchy absently sits on the Mayor's desk, and the Mayor whistles in warning. Hee. The Mayor more seriously says that it's too important a year for him "to let a loose cannon rock the boat." He wonders whether he just employed a mixed metaphor. "Boats did have cannons. And a loose one would cause it to rock." Heh. I'm expecting him to plunge a hand into Twitchy's chest and rip his still-beating heart out without missing a word in his monologue. The Mayor asks Twitchy to take care of the problem with a "committee." Twitchy says it's as good as done. The Mayor: "That's swell." He sinks his next putt. He'll probably feast on someone's eyeballs later to celebrate.
Mansion. Buffy and Angel discuss her college plans. This scene is boring, so here's the short version: Buffy asks Angel what he thinks she should do. He thinks she should leave, because it's a good opportunity for her. That's not what she wanted to hear, and she passive-aggressives her way out the door. Oh, and Joyce doesn't know Angel's back. Well, duh.
School chemistry lab. Willow's using a mortar and pestle as Xander walks in. She says she's doing an experiment. Why she's trying to keep the spell from him is a mystery to me. I mean, she was going to have to recite an incantation, right? Even Xander would pick up on that. Sigh. They flirt, but then she gets serious. He eventually recognizes that she intends to do "love-spell stuff." She says she thought it would go better if he didn't know. Boy, this episode is chock full of the beginning of annoying character arcs, isn't it? And "go better" for whom, exactly? She continues, "You said you wished that these feelings could just go away!" Remind me not to sing the Oscar Meyer wiener song around Willow. Xander retorts, "Yeah, I wish for a lot of things! I told you I wished I was a fireman in sixth grade, but you didn't follow through on that!" Word. She says she can't do this anymore, and he snides, "Do you really need to resort to the black arts to keep our hormones in check?" She snits, "At this point, I'm thinking no." Xander turns the lights on, but Spike, out of nowhere, grabs him from behind. Xander struggles with Spike as Willow grabs a marble head. Spike punches Xander, then catches Willow as she tries to wallop him with the marble head. He snarls, "That's not nice. We're all gonna be very best friends." He grabs the head and clocks Xander across the temple, knocking him out. That really looked like it hurt.
