BAH Roadshow. Prue is on camera, appraising the -- ahem -- wand. Prue: "Distinctly eighteenth century, European, the [titter, titter] tip is amber surrounded by symbolic seals -- it's a ritual [ahem] wand." Prue says the item is worth five thousand dollars. The Old Lady owner seems very pleased with this and exclaims that she bought it at a flea market for only fifteen dollars, where it sat on the remnants table, along with the script for this episode. Cut to Gary Busey's son all dressed up in black, walking into the shot. Oh, my bad, it's an actor named Lochlyn Monro, but I'm still guessing that his conception involved a willing female, a fifth of Jack Daniels, a dime bag, and the Oscar nominee for The Buddy Holly Story. A forklift is used to raise Lochlyn's huge buckteeth, allowing Jack "Slack-jawed Mogul" Sheridan to state that he'll buy the -- ahem -- wand that very moment for one thousand in cash. As Prue waits for her bitch to warm up, he adds a plug for his eBay-ish website, "Sheridan Internet Auctions -- 'If you own it, I can sell it.'" What a catchy name! What a catchy slogan! His advertising agency must be D & D. Prue slams Jack for interrupting her appraisal. Jack picks up the -- ahem -- wand. The two continue to banter, because they both desire ownership of this long, powerful bulb-tipped object. Old Lady decides to take the cash up front instead of waiting for public auction, where the higher appraisal price isn't guaranteed. Prue holds the -- ahem -- wand and guesses that Jack probably doesn't possess any (air-quote) assets, because she "can tell just by looking there's not much there." Prue, of course, is right. Jack gets the Old Lady's address to purchase the euphemism-wand from her later. The director cuts the scene. Prue and Jack make some more half-assed attempts at badinage. Prue declares that her business methods are different from Jack's; she doesn't "lie or cheat." Jack says he doesn't lie, and walks off to go to the bank. Prue, the big fat hypocrite, uses her power to lift Old Lady's address from his pocket as he departs. Excuse me? Personal gain much? And excuse me again -- what happened to Unfrozen Caveman Love Interest Alan from the PruePaul episode?
