Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: Making Beautiful Music Together
In Dr. Horrible's lab, he's psyched up about his freeze ray and hyping his successful heist (he did get the Wonderflonium). Then he goes off on a rant about how personally it was a disaster because his dream girl is now hooking up with his arch nemesis, but hey, at least he's got a freeze ray! If all goes according to plan, he'll be in the evil league tonight. He's not worried, he apparently holds a "PhD in Horribleness." Where does one get that? One of those shady Caribbean medical schools? "See you at the aftermath. Peace... but not literally." Ha.
A slightly battered looking Dr. Horrible sits vlogging, apparently the freeze ray still needs some work. Maybe putting his evil plans on his blog isn't the best idea. According to Dr. Horrible, the LAPD and Captain Hammer watch it. Oopsie. He'd better work on a registration system before he plans another attack on the Superhero Memorial Bridge. Either that or tweak the freeze ray so it works faster. I've got faith in the down-on-his-luck Dr. Horrible. The contusions (and possible brain damage) were caused when a car hit his head. Captain Hammer was responsible. Of course.
Hold on. Phone ringing, and Bad Horse's singing cowboys are back. After the humiliating experience on the bridge, he's inclined to vote neigh, unless dr. Horrible can assassinate someone before the end of the day. "Go kill someone, signed Bad Horse."
Dr. Horrible discusses his options with Moist. Should he kill someone? Would Moist kill someone? Moist doesn't aspire to be in the evil league of evil, his worst power is making people feel like they need to take a shower. He's not cut out for real evil deeds. Killing isn't Dr. Horrible's style. Not elegant enough. Moist suggests the Henchmen's Union. The doc would get in easily. That idea gets shot down and he uses the PhD line again. Moist questions that as a catchphrase. Oh Moist, the voice of reason.
Moist's pal Hourglass knows a future president who is just a kid, nice easy target. I do like the way he thinks. Dr. Horrible looks appalled. Some evildoer he turned out to be. Moist suggests smothering an old lady. More disgusted looks from the doctor.
At the Laundromat with Penny, eating more frozen yogurt, Billy's complaining that he's not going to get the job he really wants. He mutters someone about Bad Horse. Penny's all like, "The Thoroughbred of Sin?" She's heard of him? Uh oh. He meant Ghandi. She tries to encourage him telling him to keep his chin up. Even she's been canned from jobs before. Her? Really? Did they fire her because she was too damned perky all the time?.
