She's A Man, Baby, A Man!

Stephanie, get out of bed, put on some clothes and buy yourself a dictionary for chrissakes.

Halliwell Manor. Same day. Piper and Phoebe are waiting outside in the upstairs hallway. Piper: "Prue, please come out." PruePaul: "It puts the lotion on its skin, it does this whenever it's told." Phoebe bitches that PruePaul's been in there an hour already. She wonders aloud if "she's been touching herself." Piper rolls her eyes as my stomach turns. She tells PruePaul that the BoS doesn't contain a reverse spell, which means Prue will remain a man until she attracts the succubus. PruePaul says he's not going anywhere. Phoebe: "See?" Piper snarls and hisses at Pheebs and this, my only moment of enjoyment in the whole episode, fades quickly. She tells PruePaul that he needs to go to the dating service, because that's where the witch picks her victims. PruePaul declines. Piper adds that without his help, innocent men will die. PruePaul decides to come out if his sisters promise not to laugh at him. The 7th Heaven Balalaika Of Belly Laughs begins to riff as PruePaul emerges into the hallway. The ineffective taping of Shannen Doherty's breasts and poor costuming make him look very top-heavy and spindly-legged. PruePaul: "How can I save anyone? I look ridiculous. I'm wearing clothes from the ex-boyfriend pile, I have hair in strange places, and I have a PENIS." Phoebe, being part of the lowest common denominator of television humor audiences, laughs because mere mention of the P-word is so darn funny. PruePaul hits Pheebs and slams the door. Piper smacks Phoebe too and asks, "What's the matter with you?" Piper tells PruePaul that she doesn't have to date anyone. Phoebe adds that "as soon as you trap the succubus, the sooner you become a woman again." PruePaul comes out.

Foyer. The sisters come down the stairs, giving PruePaul advice on acting manly. Piper blathers about male confidence being evident in "the walk, the talk, the handshake." Phoebe adds that men like sports. Piper chimes in with, "Sincerity. That's key." Whatever that means. Piper makes a lame quip about reading in Cosmo that a man is made by "the clothes he wears, the car he drives, and the money he earns." Piper and PruePaul smack Pheebs around some more. Actually, they just ignore her. They decide to work on PruePaul's walk, telling him to choose a man he admires and to emulate him. He struts the catwalk for the docile Ps. Piper: "The man you admire is Richard Simmons?" She and Phoebe think this is completely hilarious, and not an ignorant slam on effeminate men, if not an ugly homophobic slur.
