Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: Making Beautiful Music Together
She's singing a song to him about how lonely and sad she was as a child. But she learned to see the good in the world. Look at how bad other people have it. Life isn't that bad. She touches him on his knee. He looks like he's going to die. They almost kiss. Then she kills the mood by talking about Captain Hammer. Billy asks, "How are things with cheesy on the outside?" Ha. That's my favorite line of the day. I want a cheesy on the outside T-Shirt.
He can judge the Captain for himself, he's going to drop by shortly. 'Oh goodness... look at my wrist, I've got to go." Wait, this is my favorite line. I personally don't wear a watch and am always pointing to my wrist when I'm making an excuse. No one buys it because of the lack of watch. Now I'm going to try this out. Or not, since Penny doesn't buy it either. Why's he leaving without his clothes? He doesn't like them anymore. Gotta run...
Right into Captain Hammer. The beefy guy pulls out his best bone crushing handshake for Billy the Laundry Buddy. He looks "horribly familiar." Really? The lab coat isn't exactly a big disguise. The Hammer wants to know if he knows Billy from the gym. Of course. Wait, The Hammer needs not need to work out. He's just muscle-bound and beefy naturally. Oh well, "who wants to know what the mayor is doing behind closed doors." Oh, I bet Dr. Horrible does. Oh wait, it is just that he's signing over the building to Caring Hands so Penny can help the underprivileged. The only signature he needed was the Captain's fist... "but with a pen in it." Nathan Fillion is so brilliantly doltish in this. Didn't think it was possible to love him more than I already did.
Penny and the Hammer share a kiss. Ding. Dryer's done. Billy tries to leave, but the Hammer grabs him and says it was so nice to meet the Doctor. Uh oh. This does not bode well for our sweet villain. Instead of physically hurting him, he hits below the belt by exploiting Billy's crush on Penny. The Captain plans on taking Penny home to see the Command Center and the Ham Jet (is that what he's calling it?) He says, "Penny's giving it up. She's giving it up hard." Penny? Well... maybe if there was a lot of free fro-yo involved. Just in case he wasn't being clear enough. His fist, that's not the hammer. He spells it right out. "The hammer is my penis." I'm not sure this is safe for work anymore.
