Giles enters the library to find some police officers awaiting him. The leader, a no-nonsense officer who, as Omar would say, just happens to be black and female, greets him by name, and tells him he'll have to come down to the station. Giles asks why. No-Nonsense Officer informs him of the homicide on campus, and says that while Philip had no identification, he was carrying a slip of paper with Giles's name and address on it. Giles is flustered. Cordy enters the library, blathering about the computer review session and a book she needs for it. Giles points out the police officer, but Cordy takes the opportunity to ask her for help with a ticket. "It was a one-way street. I was going one way!" Heh. Giles barks her name, and she defensively asks why everyone does that, as she can take a hint. Getting no help, she asks what the hint is. Giles seethes, "To come back later." You don't think Cordy can get the last word in this exchange, do you? Oh, ye of little faith! Cordy: "Yeah, when you've visited decaf land." Hee! She leaves. Giles asks No-Nonsense Officer where he needs to go.
Morgue. An employee opens a freezer and asks Giles if he ate breakfast. The answer is no, and the guy says that was a good idea. Leave the morgue humor to Six Feet Under, dude. He uncovers Philip's corpse, which is covered in nasty-looking contusions. Giles identifies Philip as a friend from London, but says they hadn't spoken to each other in twenty years. No-Nonsense Officer asks if Giles can think of any reason why Phillip would want to contact him. Staring at Philip's arm, which bears the same tattoo that Giles saw in his dream, he says no. No-Nonsense Officer picks up on that, and asks if he knows the significance of the tattoo. Giles answers in the negative. No-Nonsense Officer doesn't look convinced, but we don't see her again, so who cares?
