Storyline

While Buffy is in trouble with her mother, who believes she's too selfish to think of anything else then boys and clothes (she wished it were true!) and resorts to grounding (ignoring Angel's window visits), the brothers Lyle and Tector Gorch, who murdered an entire Mexican village even before they turned vampires, are spotted, presumably attracted by the Hellmouth. Meanwhile a teacher who worries about irresponsible teenager sex, as Xander and Cordelia -still passionately despising and kissing each-other- verbally demonstrate in class to think only of superficial risks, resorts to the parenting eggs trick, only absent Buffy is a 'single mother'. Of course in Sunnydale the eggs turn out to be not poultry but something nasty, dangerous and mysterious, even after boiling as Xander did to facilitate parental care, of the body snatching order...

Trivia

For most of the kissing scenes between Buffy & Angel, Sarah Michelle Gellar and David Boreanaz would prank each other by eating onions, garlic, cheese and the like to force each other to kiss with stinky breath. See more »

Goofs

When Willow and Xander first enter the library, there are two paper-trays on top of the catalog cabinet where Buffy is standing; they are absent in subsequent shots. Also on the cabinet is a chained pen, which changes position between shots. See more »

Quotes

Giles: Your playmate is a fellow of repute, it seems.

Giles: It's, erm, Lyle Gorch. And that one's his brother, Tector. They're from Abilene. They, uh, they made their reputation massacring an entire Mexican village in 1886.
Buffy Summers: Friendly little demons.
Giles: No, that was before they became vampires.

Bad Eggs is bad, like Beer Bad, but Bad Girls is good
17 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't think I'll shine any light this one. But what really illuminated (the night it originally aired) was the full moon. SMG actually likes a good moon (in the sky). She even asked the DP to film one while noises by the 'cemetery' (She doesn't like real ones) interrupted shooting. I'd like to believe I'm 1st to designate the 1st original episode airing on a night of an actual full moon. Now for another strange bit of trivia I don't think anyone has mentioned: The theme musics from Buffy and Angel use the SAME first 3 pitched notes. I bet even Joss, Chris, and Jesse T. are unaware of this. I just HAD to tell someone! Consider this 'Easter'- 'Egg' material of the non-DVD kind.
