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

Willow: The nightmares?
Wendell: It's always the same. I'm sitting in class, the teacher asks me to read something. I open the book and... there they are, coming after me. God... can you blame ...

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
