Attic. Aftermath. Phoebe scries fruitlessly for Piper as Raige strides in from the stairwell with an icepack for Phoebe's neck and apologies for not returning to the Manor sooner. She glances over at the enclosure to note that Tongue Boy has fallen asleep. The Doltine Psycho's empty gaze creeps her out as much as it does me, so she quickly continues across the room to pass the ice pack to the Feebs. Phoebe opines that the thing now in possession of Piper was "more beast-like" than your average Manticore, but neither of the gals can figure out why he squiggled into the attic as soon as Tongue Boy unleashed the Manticore shriek. Raige crosses to a low table and proceeds to putter around with the potion ingredients. As she tosses a pinch of something into the pot, she muses that the non-Manticore beast likely has Piper locked away somewhere "magically cloaked" and intends to use her as "leverage" in subsequent negotiations for Tongue Boy. Big Gay Chris and the Dolt finally orb in from the bridge, and the four engage in a hushed conversation regarding their current predicament. Why hushed? They don't want Tongue Boy to wake up and alert "half the Manticores in San Francisco" to his presence in the Manor, of course. Pay attention. "I am not convinced that baby is inherently evil," Raige contends, "which means he's probably not even responsible for any of this." "Come on!" Big Chris wails, turning to the Dolt for support. The Dolt heaves a sigh and approaches Raige with, "Not everyone is born morally neutral, especially not demons. They're predisposed to evil." "Predisposed, yeah," Raige pffts, "but it doesn't mean they can't be raised to overcome it. You can't predict whether a kid is going to be good or evil based on his genetics." "You guys?" Phoebe interrupts. "This is all irrelevant. We need the baby to find Piper, so let's just focus on that." The Dolt dolts across the room to orb his bloodthirsty little lunatic up to Whitelighterland. Phoebe and Raige fret that, should Tongue Boy awaken and find The Doltine Psycho gone, they'll be in a horrible position, what with Manticores pouring in through every window and such. They eventually relent, though, and the Dolt and Big Gay Chris orb upwards through the ceiling with The Doltine Psycho. Phoebe and Raige hustle over to the table to complete whatever damn potion it is they're concocting this time.
