Storyline

When Xander realizes that he isn't needed as much as he'd like to believe, his quest to prove he's cool leads him to an unforgettable night that finds him consorting with fast women, raising the dead and rolling with a dangerous crowd that could put Sunnydale in a world of hurt. Meanwhile, Buffy, Giles and the rest of the crew engage in a furious battle with the Sisterhood of Jhe, an all-female demon apocalypse cult that intends to reopen the Hellmouth and bring about the end of the world.

Trivia

"Zeppo" (Herbert Manfred) Marx was the fifth and youngest of The Marx Brothers, after Chico Marx, Harpo Marx, Groucho Marx, and Gummo Marx. Although he was a performer (unlike Gummo), he was rarely given much comedic material, usually playing the "straight man" in the Marxes' plays and movies instead - hence Cordelia's insult to Xander that he is inessential to Buffy and the gang and therefore "The Zeppo" of the group. Zeppo Marx stopped appearing in films after Duck Soup (1933), and formed a theatrical agency with Gummo. See more »

Rupert Giles: Hm? Oh, no, no, thank you. Probably best if you-you stay out of trouble.
Xander: No chance of that.
Jack O'Toole: Xander! Motor!
Rupert Giles: There's something different about this menace, something in the air. The stench of death.
Xander: Yeah, I think it's Bob.

Best Buffy Episode
27 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just love this episode. Xander really carries it, something he's failed to do in the other Xander-center episodes IMO. Cordy is absolutely withering in her disdain for Xander and, of course, HOT. The monster plot is at first mysterious and ominous and later a beautiful in-joke. Jack O'Toole is brilliantly psychotic. His gang is pretty bleh, but they serve their purpose. Even Faith is interesting and sexy in this episode. The denouement is brilliant both in the gang's discussion of the monster and Xander's penultimate confrontation with Cordy.

Xander will forget the life lessons he's learned in this episode, but for one brief shining week he gets to be the man.
