Joss liked the character of Vamp Willow when she was first introduced in "The Wish" so much that he wrote this episode specifically for her.
This is the 50th episode of Buffy.
This is one of Alyson Hannigan's favorite episodes, according to an interview with PopWatch (October 05).
This episode marks the first appearance of D'Hoffryn.
Alyson Hannigan loved her vampire make-up so much that she was made up again as Vamp Willow to attend a Halloween party that same year.
Although it appears she was simply killed, the girl Willow bites was evidently sired, as she would return in Season 5 as a vampire.
Guest stars Andy Umberger and Michael Nagy would both go on to guest star on Joss Whedon's other shows Angel and Firefly.
Anya: For a thousand years I wielded the powers of the wish. I brought ruin to the heads of unfaithful men. I brought forth destruction and chaos for the pleasure of the lower beings. I was feared and worshipped across the mortal globe. And now I'm stuck at Sunnydale High. Mortal. Child. And I'm flunking math.
Percy: I'm challenged.
Snyder: You're lazy, self-involved, and spoiled. That's quite the challenge.
The Mayor: No Slayer of mine's going to live in a fleabag hotel. That place has a very unsavory reputation. There are immoral liasons going on there.
Faith: Yeah, plus all the screwing.
Willow: Yeah, that's me. Reliable-dog-geyser person.
Anya: I swear, I am just trying to find my necklace.
Willow: Well, did you try looking inside the sofa in Hell?
Giles: She was truly the finest of all us.
Xander: Way better than me.
Giles: Much, much better.
Buffy: Willow, you're alive.
Willow: Aren't I usually?
Willow: Say, you all didn't happen to do a bunch of drugs, did ya?
Vamp Willow: Well, look at me. I'm all fuzzy.
