Notes (4)

  • According to interviews with both Joss Whedon and James Marsters, this episode was supposed to be the final one with Spike in it, as he was scripted to die when Kendra and Buffy saved Angel. But Joss and company became so attached to Spike that this ending was later changed.

  • The first two guns Patrice pulls on Buffy are Beretta 92F's. The one she pulls from her ankle holster appears to be a Walther.

  • In this episode, we learn that there are 43 churches in Sunnydale.

  • When Spike first brings Angel to Drusilla, she sings the same song that she sang at the beginning of "Lie to Me".

Trivia (15)

  • Nitpick: When Buffy and Kendra are talking in Giles' office, Buffy is sharpening a knife, but it appears that what she is doing would just be blunting the knife.

  • Goof: When Dru is carrying Spike out of the rubble, the wires used to hold him up are visible.

  • Goof: At 39:03, the shadow of the boom-mic is visible on people, as Willow and Oz walk away.

  • Buffy tells Kendra to watch the movie on her flight home unless it's a "movie with a dog in it and Chevy Chase." This may be a reference to Funny Farm, a 1988 movie starring Chase that Gellar had a small, uncredited role in.

  • In the scene in which Buffy and Kendra are helping Angel out of the church, a cross can be seen around Angel's neck.

  • Nitpick: The crossbow that Kendra uses to accidentally shoot Giles' lamp isn't very powerful. The arrow is unable to go all the way through the lampshade without getting stuck in it.

  • Goof: At the end of the episode, when Buffy and Kendra are saying goodbye, the drop-down portion of Buffy's necklace keeps moving around.

  • Nitpick: When Cordelia and Xander are escaping from Buffy's basement, they scramble for the front door. The basement opens into the kitchen, which would mean that the back door is only paces from the basement door. It seems irrational that they would run for the front door and take the chance that the bug man might be hiding along the way.

  • Xander: I am the bug man, coo coo ka choo.
    This is a reference to The Beatles' song "I Am The Walrus". The real lyric is "I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus, coo coo ka choo".

  • Buffy: Back off, Pink Ranger.
    This is a reference to the favorite kids show Power Rangers, which has teenage superheroes fighting monsters. Pink is the one color in the shows history worn only by Ranger girls. This is a good in-joke for both Buffy and Power Rangers fans. James Marsters (Spike) dated Alison MacInnis, who would go on to play the Pink Ranger on Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue. In addition, Buffy's stunt double, Sophia Crawford, was also the stunt double for the Pink Ranger.

  • Xander: Welcome, my little pretties.
    This is an homage to the Wicked Witch of the West from the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz who called Dorothy her little pretty.

  • Spike: If Dru dies, your little Rebecca of Sunnyhell Farm, and all her mates are spared her coming out party. This is a play on Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm, the 1903 book by Kate Douglas Smith Wiggin.

  • Spike: Aren't you a "throw himself to the lions" sort of sap these days. A reference to the Roman practice of throwing Christians (and other enemies) into an arena with hungry lions. Angel's willingness to sacrifice himself for Buffy and the others is being likened to willingly being eaten by the lions to distract their attention and sate their hunger.

  • Buffy: Possibly something from the Ringwald oeuvre.
    Molly Ringwald was one of the 80's brat pack actors and appeared in such teen films as Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club.

  • Buffy: You and bug people Xander. What's up with that?
    Buffy refers to Xander's previous experience with a teacher who turned out to be a giant praying mantis in the episode "Teacher's Pet" (1x04).

  • Xander: Who sponsored career day today, the British Soccer Fan Association? Xander both teases Giles and questions the school's state of disarray with a poke at British Soccer Fans who are known to get rather exuberant in support of their team (and destructive when they disagree with a call by the officials).
