Joss Whedon stated that this episode was used to connect the 4 & study their characters. It sums up what they have been through, what they have become & what they will face in future. It highlights how they all need each other despite the fragmented season they have just been through. Buffy is forced to question what she is and where she came from, which sets up some of the events of season 5. See more
As Xander crawls from his ice cream truck into his room, the the blue screen outside the truck's side window partially leaves the visible area of the window, revealing the studio.

Why, thank you but they're not very heavy. Why have you come to our lonely small town, which has no post office and very few exports?
I've come looking for a man. A salesman.
