- The dress and make-up Buffy wears in Xander's fantasy world cracks me up.
- What exactly is a "permanent record?" What goes on it? Where does it end up? Could someone seriously tell me this, because I have no idea, and I'm curious.
- I got so excited the first time around that there was going to be a grown-up who thought Buffy was an OK chick. And then with the beheading. Damn it.
- I start to feel nauseous when Xander forgets where the science room is. I still occasionally have that recurring dream. (And I haven't been in high school for mmmfffmmm years!) There's no substitute teacher in my dream, though. It's just all about me somehow not remembering where my classes are in a very small school where I go every day. Hmmm.
- OK, so insect lady has to label her Tupperware "food," which leads me to wonder what else she keeps in little plastic containers with blue lids. I have to label my food so I don't accidentally pick up my...what? instead. Insect craft supplies? Nuts and bolts? What?
- Principal Flutie and his see a counselor speech - priceless.
- "Her fashion sense screams predator." "It's the shoulder pads." hehe
- "Giles, while we're young." Lots of things to say about this one little line. First of all, how cute is Giles with his passion for the subject matter? I can so relate to that. You love it. You want to share every interesting detail, you're so excited, and yawn, no on else cares. Secondly, it shows how cavalier Buffy still is about him and the slaying. He's past the point of no return, already completely emotionally attached to her, but she's not there yet. This is still a wacky adventure for her (it will end any day now, right?), and he's still a stuffy old eccentric British guy. Nice setup for their relationship.
- Two runners up for funniest moments: 1. The gigantic insect says, "Call me Natalie." 2. The wrong side of the tape has Giles dictating nerdy notes. Aw.
- Angel shows the first signs of being cute and possibly mattering in the slightest with his sweet smile at the end.
- The Superfine song Already Met You, I now know, because I looked it up and read the lyrics, is about meeting the "same" person over and over again. Paraphrase: You're drab, you're dull, you have no passion or soul, you're so very mundane, and you're just like the rest of them. But I'll keep trying, because "I still believe it gets better than this." So on a tangent, I ask this. Why is it that so many people settle for someone who's so not right for them? It just leads to heartache later. Are we that lonely and insecure that we think the right person won't show up? Why don't we say I already met you, and dude, you're not the one?
Teacher's Pet Drabble
Cordy visits the school guidance counselor
Cordelia Chase. She’s the one the wannabe girls follow around. I’ve watched them in the halls, bouncing along behind her, ducklings with shiny hair. I don’t remember that many vacant airheads from my high school days. Kids are getting dumber. Or maybe I’m just getting old. Can’t wait for career day. What college should I go to? College, give me a break. Just get yourself a husband, a pretty house and lifetime supply of diet Coke. Next, please.
Wait. Did she say diet??
“Ah yes, well, Cordelia, thank you for stopping in. I think you’re going to be just fine.”
