All right, I'm off my soapbox. Broody McLurk sees Spike through the window. He tries to run through the doorway, but is stopped by the invisible barrier. Joyce jumps up in fright. Spike, standing behind Joyce, makes a series of hilarious faces, hand gestures, and comments in this scene. Angel tries to get Joyce to invite him in, but she's not having it. Spike taunts Angel some more. Angel: "You touch her and I'll cut your head off." Spike: "You and what army?" Buffy, appearing out of nowhere: "That would be me." She grabs him by the neck and holds him down on a table. She invites Angel in, and Joyce is very confused. Buffy goes to stake Spike, but he cries, "Willow!" He explains that he's got Xander and Willow, and about the spell. He calls Angel "Peaches," which causes me to spill a non-product-placed cola everywhere. Spike says that when Willow does the spell, he'll let her and Xander go. Buffy doesn't trust Spike, but he says, "Well, you and your great poof here want to tag along, that's fine. But you get in my way, and you kill your friends." Oh, Spike. I miss you.
Cordy and Oz are driving. She's freaking. Oz stops the car and sniffs the air. He says he can smell Willow, and she's afraid. Cordy: "Oh my God. Is this some sort of residual werewolf thing? This is really disturbing." Oz: "I really agree." These two needed more scenes together. While they were on the show. Sigh. They change direction and drive off.
Spike is leading Angel and Buffy to the magic shop when he holds his head and whinges about sobering up. "I wish I was dead." Buffy, pulling out a stake: "Well, if you close your eyes and wish real hard..." Angel stops her, telling her that they still need Spike. Buffy bites out, "Need him? He's probably just got 'em locked up in the factory." Spike, slightly unconvincingly: "How thick do you think I am?" Ha! Buffy backs off. They stop at a bench, and Spike reminisces some more. Blah blah blah I-miss-Dru-cakes.
They enter the magic shop. Buffy, seeing the police tape inside, snits, "Your work?" They split up to get the ingredients. Buffy and Angel start needling Spike about Dru. Much as Angel can be annoying, I never get tired of seeing him use Dru to get to Spike. Maybe it's because he exhibits an actual personality when he does it. Spike punches Angel, but Buffy tosses him away. Spike whines some more, prompting Buffy to snark, "You're not even a loser anymore. You're a shell of a loser." Spike: "You're one to talk." He points out that the last time he saw Buffy and Angel, they were fighting to the death, but now they're "making googly eyes at each other." Hee. "Googly eyes." Buffy and Angel claim they're just friends, but Spike isn't hearing it: "You're not friends. You'll never be friends. You'll be in love 'til it kills you both. You'll fight, and you'll shag, and you'll hate each other 'til it makes you quiver, but you'll never be friends." Thanks for the bubblegum wisdom. And if they move to different networks, instead of fighting and shagging they'll each never speak a word of the other again. Spike's coup de grace: "I may be love's bitch, but at least I'm man enough to admit it." That's my Spike. Well except for the "love's bitch" part.
