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

Goofs

Just before Buffy's auto accident, the camera cranes down from an overhead traffic light to show her car approaching the intersection that the light controls. However, painted on the street below are the standard "Stop" markings for an intersection controlled by stop signs. Obviously, the traffic light is a prop and does not belong there. See more »

Quotes

Xander Harris: I don't get this. The candy's supposed to make you feel all immature and stuff, but I've had a ton and I don't feel any diff- never mind.

a must-see
2 August 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

One Question: if chocolate made adults act like teenagers would you be scared? this episode makes you know for sure in a previous review I said this is the weirdest episode of the season but you see Principal Snyder be the Geeky kid and it leads to things I don't want to describe and I described the previous Buffy Episode I did a review for. So all the adults turn into teenagers because of chocolate... a scary thought (which would make a better horror movie than anything that's come out within the past 15 years besides Lake Mungo and The Unborn). so how out of control is this? well Giles starts undergoing smoking and takes Joyce out on a date and ####s her on a police car... That may explain how out of control this is VERY!!!!!!!!!! it definitely is one of the episodes that truly has to be seen to be believed I may have turned you off from seeing it but watch it truly it is funny (but not as funny as Earshot).
