Cordelia is on her hands and knees scrubbing out the pentacle on the floor and says, "We definitely have ring a round the lobby and it will not rub out." This is a paraphrase of a WISK Commercial from the 1970s. See more »

I'm off to save my immortal enemy
13 June 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm off to save my immortal enemy - From this episode onwards, season 3 is just an unstoppable fabulous-arc. I've always thought ATS was a quite dark show, but it sometimes really missed the great monster-of-the-week episodes, 'The Price' had everything those type of episodes are supposed to have, it had tension, character development, a great script and great monsters (Who doesn't love glowy slugs?). And it also had a great catch-phrase - We're thirsty!. The fun of those slugs was whomever they possessed, became mad with thirst and if it didn't drank enough water it would fall into a pile of dust, so it's always great when they get one of the main cast in trouble, in this case it was 'Fred' who was DYING for a good storyline. My favorite scene was probably 'Wesley's, he has just turned into his extremely dark and broody-guy but still he found a way to save 'Fred'. I also loved 'Cordy'-in this, i'm probably the only one who liked her hair-cut and her relationship with 'Groo' (Although I rather have Cangel, obviously) towards the end of the episode she glowed and made all those evil slugs disappear. I also completely loved the Lilah/Gavin tension and of course 'Connor' re-appearing as a teenager at the end of the episode - Hi dad!. GROO: Sunburst Splendor is a hue more worthy of a champion. Or, or...perhaps this unique one called...Pur-pleh. ANGEL: Purple. Yet you have no problems pronouncing "pomegranate." GROO: It was my mother's name. (10 out of 10)
