Feeling as though she's being treated like a child by her mother and watcher, Buffy finds the tide of maturity turned when all the adults begin acting out as teenagers. Little does anyone suspect that the whole thing is to mask a much more sinister plot involving the Mayor and a familiar enemy.

Episode Quotes
Giles: This is the SATs, Buffy, not connect the dots. Please pay attention. A low score can seriously harm your chances of getting into college.
Buffy: Gee, thanks. That takes the pressure right off.

Principal Snyder: Whoa, Summers! You drive like a spaz!

Xander: I don't get this. The candy's supposed to make you feel all immature and stuff, but I've had a ton and I don't feel any diff... never mind.
