    • Buffy: Germs?
      Buffy's suggestion of defeating the Turok-Han with germs is a double reference.

      Firstly, it was one of the ways the gang threw out to defeat Sunnydale Mayor Richard Wilkins III in the season 3 finale, as the mayor had a deathly fear of germs and disease.

      It could also be a possible reference to the classic H.G. Wells science fiction novel and 1953 film War of the Worlds, where the invading aliens were seemingly indestructible, yet ultimately were killed by common Earth germs and illnesses.
