Trivia

At the very beginning of the episode when Giles and the Scoobies are walking in the graveyard, there's a gravestone clearly marked "Snyder", a reference to Principal Snyder, played by Armin Shimerman, who was a major character in the high school years. See more »

Goofs

When Buffy and Wood first see the first vampire come around the corner in the alley, the shot is actually stock footage from Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Gift (the vampire from the beginning of that episode). See more »

Quotes

Giles: Those are flash cards. I made them to facilitate her training. Chao-Ahn never had a watcher, with the language problem...
Willow: You showed her these?
Giles: I wanted her to understand the seriousness of her situation.
Dawn: Holy crap!
[holds up picture of a woman ripped in half]
Giles: Perhaps I'll rethink the approach.
