Storyline

At the hell-mouth, the Master of evil explains to his boy heir Collin that fear rules people better then love or hate. He manages to use the young schoolboy Billy Palmer to make every student of Sunnydale High's terrifying nightmares come true, ranging from Xander appearing in class wearing only boxer-shorts to being chased by murderers, losing one's favorite abilities or poisonous spiders coming out of one's schoolbooks... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Aldo and Willow were attempting to preform the famous duet from Puccini's Madame Butterfly. Willow was dressed to play the title character Cio-Cio-San and Aldo was playing her new American husband Pinkerton. In the actual duet, Cio-Cio-San does not come in until after Pinkerton's first five lines (where Willow asked if it was her turn). The first prompting look Aldo gave her was factually inaccurate.

Quotes

Xander: Probably be faster if we split up to look for her.
Rupert Giles: Good idea.
[Xander and Giles go in opposite directions leaving Willow standing there alone]
Willow: Uh-uh, faster, but not really safer.

Very memorable

Be aware of spoilers

The nightmares of the entire Sunnydale population start to become reality, and Buffy discovers that a comatose boy named Billy may be the cause of it. The only way to get things back to normal is if Buffy can get Billy to overcome his fear and wake up from his coma.

Very funny and weird episode. But i love it.This is where all of the gangs nightmares come true.Some were funny and some were very creepy. It had very memorable quotes and i think its fantastic.

And also i know that kid from somewhere but i just don't know where from.lol
