Lowell House. Sex noises emanate from Riley's room as Forrest and Graham walk down the stairs, complaining about how cold the house is. As they hear the heapin' helpin' of humpin' going on in Riley's room, Forrest bitches that Buffy and Riley never "come up for air." In Riley's room, Buffy and Riley are doing it, and they'll be doing it for the rest of the episode. Riley reaches into a bedside table drawer and pulls out a condom. I groan, and not in a sexy way, because of the ham-handed obviousness employed in this little PSA. In the lobby of the frat house a random Initiative guy -- not wearing a red shirt, although he should be -- throws logs onto a fire in the fire place. Forrest and Graham approach him shivering and Mason, the red shirt, says that it's still an "icebox" even though he's been working on the fire for an hour. Graham jokes about the two "heat generators pumping away" upstairs and Mason laughs. Forrest smirks. Riley and Buffy grope and moan. Ace grabs her head, then her stomach and goes to the bathroom to look for pain killers and antacids. Mason sits down in a chair near the fire and the ominous music starts. The camera pulls in close to the fire as we hear sex sounds and see Buffy and Riley grappling. The fire suddenly flares up and blasts right out of the fire place; Mason is engulfed in flame and rolls around on the floor, burning. Forrest grabs a banner off the wall to smother the fire and tells Graham to get help. Back in the fireplace, the fire is burning at a normal level again.
Anya, her hair done up in a poofy pony-tail, walks alone to Riley's frat party. As she rounds a corner, Spike leaps out at her, all vamped out, and shouts, "Aaah!" Anya screeches but as soon as Spike sees who it is, he un-vamps and flatly says, "Oh, it's you." Anya wants to know what Spike is doing and complains that he made her "yell really high." Spike's disappointment is dissipated by his realization that he scared Anya and he gets right up in her face, so close it look like he's going to kiss her (or at least that's where my mind went), and demands, "Gimme me money." Anya, her shock worn off, tells him she's not paying him and pushes him away. Spike insists that he's "robbing" her and Anya mocks him, saying she know he can't do anything because of the chip in his brain. She pushes by him, and he growls and grabs her arm, but she exasperatedly tells him he's "not even bumpy anymore." Spike feels his forehead and tries to get his game face back. Anya, her arms crossed, demands to know if he's actually successful at scaring people into giving him money and Spike happily replies that it "keep [him] in blood and beers." He add that he also is amused by frightening the humans, and when Anya snaps that she can see why he doesn't have any friends, he replies, "Look whose talking. I don't see Droopy Boy on your arm." Anya stares daggers.
