Goofs

As Xander crawls from his ice cream truck into his room, the the blue screen outside the truck's side window partially leaves the visible area of the window, revealing the studio. Then, the chroma key effect is turned off too early, showing the blue screen in its true color. See more »

Quotes

Xander Harris: [In Xander's dream the door at the top of his basement is rattling] That's not the way out.
Xander's Father: [the door slams open showing Xander's father at the top of the stairs] What the hell is wrong with you? You won't come upstairs? What, are you ashamed of us? Your mother's crying her guts out.
Xander Harris: You don't understand.
Xander's Father: [comes down the steps] No. You don't understand. The line ends here with us and you're not gonna change that. You haven't got the heart.
[reaches into Xander's chest and rips out his heart]

I'm not a fan of the show, but i'm surely a fan of this episode!
20 March 2011 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Mostly because i'm a Lynch fan. I don't get this show. Sometimes there are really lame episodes, sometimes there are those brilliant ones. Wouldn't it be good to stick with great writing then creating evil eggs and reptile boys. This episode truly amazing but there're a lot of David Lynch. The red curtain in Willow's dream and cheery characters are from him. I'm not accusing Whedon for copying, 'cos he didn't. He told us in an amazing way the fears and worries of the characters. There are people who don't like this show mostly because they are not familiar to Lynch's style and they want action in every episode. Sorry but this episode is amazing.9.7/10.
