Quotes

Tara: [Backstage, Willow's dream] Things aren't going very well.
Willow: [Agitated] No! This drama class is just... I think they're really not doing things in the proper way, and now I'm in a play and my whole family's out there, and... why is there a cowboy in "Death of a Salesman" anyway?
Tara: [Frowns] You don't understand yet, do you?

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.
