Manor parlor. Phoebe scries for Road Kill as Piper enters from the kitchen on a cell phone. She's talking to Detective Darryl, who is most upset. We quickly learn the cause of his migraine. Road Kill's appropriation of the garbage truck has been reported as a swordpoint car-jacking. The boys in the precinct house are understandably puzzled. Piper prevaricates and promises to call him back if they learn anything about it. Phoebe's scrying is fruitless. As Road Kill is neither witch nor demon, there's nothing for her crystal to sense. Piper calls for the Dolt, who orbs in to reveal that Raige has no intention of returning to the Manor at any point in the near future. Piper bitches about Raige's unreliability. Despite his unwillingness to mire himself in the swampy relationship issues the gals have with each other, the Dolt allows that Raige's unreliability isn't the problem. It's the Manor Ps' custom of thinking of Raige as a collection of powers they can exploit, rather than as a sister. Busted, Piper and Phoebe pout. The Dolt suggests they consult the BoS for the details of Raige's "fairy tale" while he heads out for a chat with The Powers That Be. Piper examines her nails while Phoebe stares off to the side.
BLACK HOLE OF SOCIAL SERVICES. Road Kill enters and sniffs the air. Raige is currently preoccupied with the Xerox machine -- again -- but her Spidey sense kicks in to notify her of Road Kill's presence in the main office area. Road Kill rudely pushes aside Raige's coworkers as Raige's coworkers peas-and-carrots about the lunkhead in the chain mail rather than calling security on his ass. As Road Kill spots Raige, The Flute Of Titanic Annoyance enters to give me an Indian burn. Raige drags Road Kill into the copier room to tell him to bug off. He insists that he will not leave "until [she] is with child." There are noises about Raige playing it safe every time and how Road Kill needs to keep his sword sheathed before Raige backs into the Xerox machine. Road Kill promises never to harm her; then we get a Cleansing Burst Of Synchronicity as Crappy CGI Guy leaps from the machine to menace her, if what Crappy CGI Guy does could be called "menacing." He bounds to the floor and starts to strangle Raige. Road Kill draws his sword and slices Crappy CGI Guy in half. Crappy CGI Guy zips back into a light socket. No, I don't know why Phoebe gets electrocuted when she sticks her foot in the Guy's head, while Road Kill emerges from the encounter with his highly-conductive person and weapon unscathed. Stop asking me these questions. Raige swoons. The Flute Of Titanic Annoyance has given up on the Indian burn and is now punching me repeatedly in the arm. Road Kill helps her to her feet. Raige is suddenly and inexplicably love-struck. They make gooey eyes at each other as Raige's boss enters the room with a couple of security guards. Raige passes Road Kill off as a "Renaissance Fair" representative who came to see her about some complimentary tickets she'd been trying to score for an orphanage. Taking orphans to a Renaissance Fair? That's adding insult to injury. I told you it was the black hole of social services. Raige grabs Road Kill's hand and bolts.
