Storyline

After being poisoned by a demon, Buffy comes to believe that she is confined to a mental hospital, her mother is alive, her parents are still together, and that her life as a Slayer has all been an hallucination for the past six years. Deciding that she prefers this "normal" life with her parents, Buffy attempts to destroy the things that tether her to the "fantasy" life of the Slayer: her friends. Written by Alex

Quotes

Jonathan Levinson: [about being stuck in the basement] I mean, I'm going Jack Torrance in here, ya know? Stuck in this basement for weeks. We rented the whole house. Can't we at least sleep upstairs?
Andrew Wells: We're on the lam. We have to lay low. Underground.
Jonathan Levinson: That's figurative doofus! Did you even read Legion of Doom?
Warren Meers: Okay, enough!
[to Jonathon]
Warren Meers: Midgetor, get back to the monitors.
