Camp Skylark. Phoebe has somehow enticed all of the kids into a cabin, and she suggests they all play "Red Rover." Inside this small cabin? What the? The kids, who I instantly all adopt as my foster children, loudly shout Pheebs down. Phoebe suggests "Thumbs Up, Seven Up." The kids, who are all getting the latest Nintendo systems and games from their Uncle Owen for Christmas, wail on Pheebs some more and add thumbs-down gestures. Then Phoebe seems to get a brainstorm by spying two rolls of cord and suggesting "Candy-yerds [sp?]." Does anyone know what this is? I suspect it's a game Phoebe made up as a child when the brighter children shunned her, much like Ralph Wiggums and "Wiggle Puppy." The kids all earn two weeks at Disneyland with their dear Uncle Owen by wailing on Pheebs even louder. One boy suggests that they all blow off Phoebe and go swimming. Pheebs gives him the stink-eye. Prue walks in on this poor man's Up the Down Staircase. Phoebe asks her if she's got the dope. Prue nods. Grizzly joins them. Just then, Prue's cell phone rings. She walks outside and answers it. It's Jack; he has her on conference call so she can listen to him speak Japanese and steal her sale with Mr. Fujimoto. She gets her bitch on and warns him that she "sure as hell" won't let him take credit as the sales agent. Jack tells her "to trust [him]." She hangs up. Next! Cut to Phoebe drugging the children with a cloud of "next-day stupids" powder. As the doped-up kids shuffle out of the cabin, Pheebs waves her arms around, yelling, "As you go to bed, remember: Water -- bad. Land -- good. Water -- bad. Land -- good." Charmed -- bad. Buffy -- good. Char -- oops, I guess some of that powder seeped into my apartment.
