Episode Quotes
Mr. Whitmore: S-E-X. Sex. The sex drive in the human is intense. How many of us have lost countless productive hours plagued by unwanted sexual thoughts and feelings?
Xander: Yes! Mm hm.
Mr. Whitmore: That was a rhetorical question, Mr. Harris, not a poll.

Lyle Gorch: (to Tector Gorch) I'm gonna beat you like a redheaded stepchild.

Giles: I suppose there is a sort of... Machiavellian ingenuity to your transgression.
Xander: I resent that! Or possibly thank you.



Episode Goofs
In the closing credits, Danny Strong's character's name is spelled "Johnathan", rather than the more traditional "Jonathan", as it is spelled in every other episode.
