Giles travels to London for a watchers' meeting to discuss about Glory and leaves Anya in charge of the Magic Box. When Willow uses the supplies of the store to cast a spell to create a ball of sunshine to help Buffy to slay vampires, Anya argues with her and the distracted Willow releases a troll imprisoned in a parallel world. Olaf the troll destroys the store and goes to the Bronze to drink beer with the intention of eating babies. Meanwhile, the whimpering and needy Buffy is missing Riley and Willow and Anya chase Olaf. When they fight against the troll, Xander unsuccessfully tries to help his girlfriend and his best friend, and Olaf asks him to choose between Anya and Willow who might live. Written by

Unlike most episodes, in which everything magical is fictional, during the fight which takes place in The Magic Box, in the background is a rack filled entirely with copies of the real-world Neo-Pagan magazine Green Egg, published by the Church of All Worlds. See more
At 34:14, Olaf comes stomping into the Magic Box carrying his hammer, but when the view cuts from his feet (and hammer) to a waist-up shot, his hands are suddenly empty. Then, after he picks up Willow and Anya and tosses them over the counter, suddenly his hammer is back in his hand again. It disappears a second time after he conks Xander with it, then reappears when Buffy arrives. See more
Um, Anya, while-while I completely trust you, uh, uh-uh, to take care of the inventory and the money, um, dealing with people requires a certain, uh, finesse.
I have finesse. I have finesse coming out of my bottom. I can completely lie to the health inspector. I can, you know, distract him with coy smiles and-and bribe him with money and goods.
