Trivia

The site where Dawn finds information about Gnarl, "Demons, Demons, Demons", seems to be the same that Cordelia uses (in Angel) to find demons faster than Wesley, which has been used as a comedic joke several times in Angel. See more »

Goofs

When Buffy is gouging out the demon's eyes, her thumbs are clearly just being over its eyes and no actual gouging is being done. See more »

Quotes

Willow: Giles says everything's a part of the earth. This bed, the air, us.
Buffy: Explains why my fingernails get dirty even when I don't do anything.

A cheerful reunion- and the funniest quote of the season!
25 April 2006 | by mills_436See all my reviews

Willow's back from England and there's some pesky magic brewing in Sunnydale which makes her invisible to her friends and her friends invisible to her which makes Willow feel ignored. The monster of this episode is the creepy skin-flaying paralyzing monster who does a very funny thing to Dawn which results in some funny scenes from Emma's Anya. The funniest line comes from an insane Spike who has had his soul restored- "I'm insane, what's his excuse" Classic! Another classic episode in what is sadly the last season of Buffy. It ties in well making the writing somewhat clever, too bad this little ditty didn't win any awards. That's a shame.
