Storyline

The students must study for standardized (SAT) tests and sell candy for the school band's new uniforms, even gang members who aren't in the band, but it's concocted by mayor Richard Wilkins's partner, Mr. Trick, and his subcontractor Ethan Rayne's men. Buffy lies to everyone so she can visit Angel, who is nearly normal again, just weak. Giles and ma Joyce Summers find out they are abused as false alibis but just send Buffy to bed, then work out a coordinated schedule for her and become close. The spiked candy turns adults into uninhibited, irresponsible 'teenagers'. Realizing vampires should be swarming, Buffy knocks their demonic intention out of Ethan... Written by KGF Vissers

Love this...
9 May 2014 | by (Troy, Michigan) – See all my reviews

(May be a little spoiler-y) I am a HUGE Buffy fan...I'm currently re-watching all of the seasons, and just finished watching this specific episode of Season 3...this was by far the funniest episode. Giles reverting to his badass Ripper persona (eyeliner!)...Buffy's mom was a LOT less annoying than usual in this episode and actually pretty funny (especially the handcuff part...) this is probably the ONLY episode that I actually liked Principal Snyder because he's not a douchetard in it (a little early on in the episode but mostly very un-asshatish). The whole baby stealing and subsequent plot was disturbing to the extreme... Overall, LOVED it. So funny.
