Episode Quotes
Dawn: Candles? We can't have candles?
Buffy: Dawn, it's a magic clearance. Everything must go.
Dawn: But they're just candles.
Buffy: Well, yeah, you know, to you and me they're just candles, but to witches they're... like bongs.

Spike: Buffy's a great mum. She takes good care of her little sis. Like, um, when Dawn was hanging out too much in my crypt, Buffy put a right stop to it.
Doris Kroger: I'm sorry, did you say --
Buffy: Crib. Crib. He said crib. You know kids today and their buggin' street slang.

Buffy: I know what that looks like but I - I swear it's not what it looks like. It's magic weed. It's not mine.

Episode References
As Buffy walks around Sunnydale invisible, she whistles to the tune of "Going Through the Motions", the song she sung in "Once More, With Feeling".
