Kathy: I just wanted to make sure... that we didn't have a thief or something.
Buffy: Like who? Sid the Wily Dairy Gnome?
Willow: Happy hunting.
Buffy: Wish me monsters.
Buffy: Um, he had a cloak on, glowy green eyes, and his skin had that, like, that super bad fake rub-on tan.
Willow: (about Giles) He's our grown-up friend. Not in a creepy way.
Buffy: So then, Kathy's like, "It's share time," and I'm like, "Oh, yeah? Share this!" (punches at the air)
Oz: So either you hit her, or you did your wacky mime routine for her.
Buffy: Well, I didn't do either, actually. But she deserved it, don't you think?
Oz: Nobody deserves mime, Buffy.
Buffy: She's the Titanic! She's a crawling black cancer! (Buffy kicks randomly, breaking a nearby bench) She's... other really bad things!
Oz: Well, on the plus side you killed the bench, which was looking shifty.
Willow: Giles. I just talked to Buffy and, yeah, I think she's feeling a little insane. No, not bitchy crazy, more like homicidal maniac crazy. So I told her to come see you, 'kay?
Giles: I fear the demon that Buffy met in the woods has somehow possessed her.
Buffy: Lite FM! Love songs! Nothing but love songs!
Xander: You think?
Xander: Why couldn't Giles have shackles like any self-respecting bachelor?
Kathy: (subtitled) I'm 3000 years old! When are you going to stop treating me like I'm 900?
As the bench Buffy kicks falls apart, you can see a wire on one of it's legs.
When Buffy is tapping her pencil against her textbook, in the wide shots it's hitting around the lower part of the book; in the close shots, she's hitting it up at the top.
