Episode Quotes
Xander: Why is it that I've come face-to-face with vampires, demons, the most hideous creatures Hell ever spit out, and I'm still afraid of a little bully like Jack O'Toole?
Cordelia: Because, unlike all those other creatures that you've come face-to-face with, Jack actually noticed you were there.

Xander: You're in a band. That's like a business-class ticket to cool with complementary mojo after takeoff. I gotta learn an instrument. Is it hard to play guitar?
Oz: Not the way I play it.

Xander: (to Dickie) Should've learned by now. If you're gonna play with fire, you gotta expect sooner or later --
(Dickie runs off)
Xander: I wasn't finished!



Cultural References
Xander: Hello, nasty.

Hello Nasty is the fifth studio album by the Beastie Boys, released in 1998.
