Storyline

Everyone gathers at the Summers home for Buffy's twenty-first birthday party and it goes well... at first. Feeling neglected by Buffy and the gang, Dawn's wish to keep people from leaving her is answered by Halfrek, who binds the attendees of the party to the house. When Tara tries a spell to free them, she only makes the situation worse by accidentally releasing a demon trapped inside a sword. Written by Alex

Trivia

When Anya angrily tells Willow that she should work some magic to free everyone who came to Buffy's party from the house, Tara steps between them and says, "...you're not gonna make her do something she doesn't want to. And if you try, you'll have to go through me first." The triumphant smile on Tara's face suggests her memory of Buffy saying, in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Family (2000), saying to Tara's relatives, "You want to take Tara out of here against her will, you gotta come through me."

Goofs

When Dawn closes the front door at 14:10 and the view cuts from interior (studio set) to exterior (actual house), the hardware and panes of glass in the door are an obvious mismatch, and the sidelights change from frosted glass panels (studio) to clear, mullioned glass with curtains (house). Also, the staircase visible behind Dawn in the exterior angle does not match the one on the set. See more »

Quotes

Dawn Summers: Does anybody wanna come to the mall with me for birthday presents?
Willow Rosenberg: Oh, I would, honey, but I've got my group. You know, the whole Spellcasters Anonymous thing... We're still looking for a better name.

Great episode.
18 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Im sure no one seriously thinks it is plagerizm to have the theme of people unable to leave a get together. This "mexican film" is not the first or the last to feature such a story. The play "Waiting for Godot" has characters that are waiting to leave, but don't know what they are waiting for, and can't leave until it happens. Its common surrealist fare. I don't think that the party that never ends is really the central message of this episode. Its more of a running gag. The fact that Halifreck is obviously Ceciy is great. And the partial resolution of Dawns problems is gratifying. The characters being unsble to leave sort of forces them to confront each other in meaningful ways. That is in my opinion the point.
