Trivia

In the coffee shop scene, when Halfrek is advising Anya to improve her vengeance, Halfrek warns Anya to remember what happened with "Mr. Czolgosz" (phonetically spelled "Cholgosh" in the captions for deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers). This is a reference to a moment in the episode "Superstar" in which Anya, while explaining what she used to do as a vengeance demon, said, "Vengeance wishes, on ex-boyfriends. I'd wish he was a dog, or ugly, or in love with President McKinley, or something." On September 6, 1901, a fanatical fringe Anarchist named Leon Czolgosz shot President William McKinley at the Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, New York. Czolgosz is one of the main characters depicted in the Stephen Sondheim/John Weidman musical "Assassins;" Joss Whedon, the writer of this episode, has given many interviews (mostly in conjunction with "Buffy"'s musical episode) in which he has expressed his admiration for the works of Stephen Sondheim.

Quotes

Dawn: I like music. I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out. So, mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

Buffy is the coolest mom EVER
16 July 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

This is the beginning of Series 7 I hate the character The First because all that it does is talk in different forms to Spike. The plot is It's Dawn's first day at the newly re-opened Sunnydale High School, and it's just like old times for Buffy as some undead students rise up and blame the Slayer for failing to protect them. Dawn and Buffy, together with some of Dawn's new friends, join together to defeat the evil. Meanwhile, the newly-ensouled Spike is seeking solace in the basement of the new school, and Willow is progressing in her rehabilitation with Giles in England. this isn't the best BtVS episode but EVERYONE referencing Buffy as Dawn's mom in this episode was hysterical it was so funny.
