Monday, April 28, 2008 treasure hunt ever!

Mostly Filler, Installment 28
2:16, Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered


Dru, Amy, Buffy
Cordy, Jenny, lunch lady
and all the Cordettes


Funniest Moment:

"There's just two other girls..." Ah, Harmony, way to have self esteem there. And also excellent grammar.


Favorite Character: Cordelia

I'm not always the biggest fan of Charisma's acting, but she's at her best in this episode. The look on her face when it dawns on her that Xander's spell was for her is priceless. And her speech at the end - well I stand up and cheer every time.


Best Dressed: Cordelia

This dress is exquisite. I want it.

Worst Dressed: Buffy

Fur is so out...



  • Jenny is just so graceful and so pretty, and darn it, I just hate that she really gets the shaft in this show.
  • Good lines: Buffy: I just think you could find someone more... better. Xander: What, were you running low on dramatic irony? Xander: Quit with the Hecate! Spike: ...what rhymes with lung?
  • I actually rather like Valentine's Day, which is odd, since I'm not a fan of Hallmark :)
  • I love Harmony's complete and utter lack of wit. Her insults are so stupid they're funny, especially in comparison to the never-ending wit that the Scoobies have.
  • What are the color-chart-looking poster things in Cordy's locker? Does anyone know?
  • I love the music right after the spell is cast.
  • Xander is great with his hopefulness and the crushing realization that it's a spell and Buffy is under it. Ouch.
  • When Buffy says, I'll calm down when you explain yourself, she sounds just like her mother, which is a pretty cool touch (intentional? who knows) since we all channel our parents occasionally.
  • It's interesting that the angriest Giles ever gets with the gang is whenever one of them misuses magic. I love the character development of Giles throughout the whole series, especially the explanations of his Ripper days, which is why he's so leary of magic abuse.
  • Adding the lunch lady to the throng of Xander-admirers was a nice touch.

Harmony, you're a sheep.


Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered Drabble

They All Fell
But don’t you see? We were meant to be together. You and me, we share this bond. I mean, sure, there have been others. I’ve done pretty well for myself, actually. Lots of dates, some good times. But I see now that none of that was real. That was all just preparation, practice for finding my true love, which is obviously you, Xander. It’s been you all this time; I can’t believe I didn’t see it.

Look, I really…

No, don’t talk. Look in my eyes. I know you feel it, too.

Look, Larry, we talked about this. I’m not…

I'd still if you'd still

Mostly Filler, Installment 27
2:15 Phases

rupert is way too jolly
he'd still if she'd still
Funniest Moment:
It's just so... Oz.
Favorite Character: Willow
Again, she is perfect. Funny and emotional and real. I think this is her character's best season. The speech at Oz's house is brilliant.
Best Dressed: Willow
After those overalls, this is much preferable. And does her notebook actually match her outfit? Too cute.
Worst Dressed: also Willow
Have I mentioned how I feel about overalls?
  • There are some wonderful funny lines throughout this episode. A few of my favorites... Oz: You've really mastered the single entendre. Willow: 1-800 I'm dating a skanky ho. (Even typing that out makes me laugh out loud.) Cordelia: I think you splashed on just a little too much obsession for dorks. Buffy: Mein Furrier. Oz: ...only he used more words than that.
  • Where are they always getting the restraints in this show? Seriously, do most people keep a variety of heavy chains and locks and rope and metal restraints in their garages and I'm just out of the loop?
  • Xander really is, as Cordelia claims, "such a guy." Always wants what he can't have, regardless of the fact that he didn't want it when he could have had it. I guess that's not so much a guy thing as a human thing, eh?
  • When did Giles have time to pop out and get a tranq gun?
  • The whole Larry deal makes me laugh.
  • I'd still if you'd still. I'd still, I'd very still. This is in my top ten favorite scenes of all time. Aw.

Sometimes she wished it could end. And yet everyone just kept going. Xander and Cordelia just kept going– ugh, she wasn’t sure how that had even started. Giles kept going, well watcher-ing, with his smiles and support, and it was too much. And she, the slayer, had to just keep slaying. Werewolf hunting. Running, chasing, fighting, staking. Studying, tossing, turning, crying. Waiting for the next disaster to come. Waiting until she was strong enough to do it.

So what if Willow’s boyfriend was a werewolf? Werewolf was better than evil, soulless fiend. Especially an evil, soulless fiend she still loved.
