Typing Monkeys here. The Couch Baron's going to be indisposed for the rest of the recap, but we'll show him by finishing it. We'll give him "blurst of times." Buffy gets off the phone and says that there was no answer at Miss Calendar's and Giles's phone is out of order. She leaves to go over to Giles's place. Shouldn't Cordy, like, drive you?

Giles awkwardly tries to hold Jeneyghon off, claiming that he'd be taking advantage of her, but she sits on his lap and kisses him. He shoves her away, saying it wouldn't be right. She looks bored with this little game, and we know how she feels. She says that he doesn't change. "You're like a woman, Ripper. You cry at every funeral." We don't think that characterization jives with that of "Band Candy" at all, but we're just typing monkeys. Jeneyghon goes on that Giles doesn't deserve her, but regardless, "you've got me" -- her voice goes deep and electronic -- "under your skin!" She kisses him, and when she pulls away, her face is a combination of Miss Calendar's and the floppy-eared demon's. Jeneyghon starts tossing Giles around like a rag doll, but Buffy enters and jump-kicks her. Jeneyghon starts back toward Giles, but a challenge from Buffy causes him? her? it? to reconsider, probably because it realizes that Ethan doesn't currently have a Slayer guarding him. Jeneyghon sneers, "Three down, two to go," which is another unfortunate bit of titular foreshadowing. Hee. "Titular." Hey, we're monkeys. What do you expect? Jeneyghon tells Giles, "Be seein' ya," which is nice continuity from "Halloween." It goes crashing out the window. Buffy attends to Giles, who's in a panic. Buffy tries to snap him out of it, and he says he's sorry. Buffy: "Don't be sorry, be Giles!" She goes on that fighting monsters is what they do, but Giles says this is different. Buffy asks if that's because he doesn't know how to stop it. Giles: "Because I created it!" Didn't see that one coming, did you, Buffy?

Couch Baron: And speaking of not seeing something coming...
Typing Monkeys: How did you get untied?
Couch Baron: My boyfriend here was kind enough to help me. We're going to give you a little payback.
Typing Monkeys: We're not scared of you.
Couch Baron: You will be. We're gonna tie you up and make you watch Gorillas In The Mist.
Typing Monkeys: NOOOOOO!
