Band Candy (Jane Espenson)
I enjoyed this episode but I've found it hard to find a lot of quotable dialogue. It builds up nicely as the behaviour of the adults deteriorates. It is very well done and they have so much fun: Tony Head and, perhaps, Armin Shimerman the most.
Buffy and her SATs are so annoying. She clearly couldn’t have possibly got the scores she did get: “B. I'm going with B. We haven't had B in forever.”
“Actually, I'm looking forward to it. I do well on standardized tests. What? I can't have layers?” – well no Cordy, not after you split up from Xander
Giles being hit on the head by a ball is funny but Buffy lying to her mum and Giles isn’t. And the scenes with Angel, snore.
Willow and Xander playing footsie under the table is plain wrong.
I had forgotten how naff the Dingoes were.
“They're acting like a bunch...” “They're acting like a bunch of us.” “I don't act like this.” (flash to All the Way: "It's where I'd be if I were fifteen and on the lam." "Really?" "Well, not me at fifteen, 'cause, hello, spaz." "You?" "Yeah. Hard to believe such a hot mama-yama came from humble, geek-infested roots")
“You are sooo cool. You're like Burt Reynolds.”
