From the start Buffy didn't get along with her fussy, girlish roommate Kathy Newman, who seems to have a different taste in all matters, but Kathy seems determined to follow her around. One evening Buffy shoves her out of the way to fight off one demon of a lurking type which Giles, to whom she turns in search of anything familiar, later determines as trans-dimensional. Even Parker Abrams, the nice, helpful older student Buffy met, who came for her to their dorm room while she patrolled, seems more interested in Kathy. The antagonism between the rivaling roomies grows to a 'demonic' dimension, while Buffy believes that Kathy's fingernails growing back daily must be a monster-characteristic. At last the gang decides to intervene, but an unexpected other interested party...

Wow. This music is so... She's... wearing a really little skirt.
I know - this song is super fun, isn't it?

You bet. It just gets fun-er and fun-er every time you play it.
Yeah. I'm seriously caffeine deprived. Figured I'd go study at the Grotto and get a jolt.
During FX syndicated reruns, subtitles were inexplicably deleted between the two demons. Because of this, one of the episodes major plot points is missing. Orignally, it was made clear that the second demon was Buffy's demon roommate's father. She ran away from her home dimension and he went to take her back, to her dismay.
