Storyline

While arguing whether he is jealous and has a vampire character, Angel and Buffy are attacked by a typical one, which is no problem, and she stumbles into an fresh grave, but remarks the body didn't rise itself as vampires do, it was dug up. Uncertain how to court a modern girl like miss Jenny Calendar, Giles can use some dating advice, then starts researching what evil purpose digging up girl bodies may serve, his guesses being a voodoo priest creating zombies or a flesh-eating demon, which is ruled out by a dig on the graveyard. Hiding (it was only Angel) in a dumpster near school, Cordelia finds thrown-away body parts. The gang correctly suspects science class ace Chris Epps, a recluse since his elder jock brother Daryl's fatal car accident, and geeky yearbook photographer Eric Gittleson, worries because there is no head taken yet and finds out only later the third perpetrator is already Frankenstein-monstrously 'reassembled' Daryl Epps, who wants a mate and chose Cordelia's head ...

Buffy: [sitting on top of the gravestone of Stephan Korshak] C'mon, Stephan, rise and shine. Some of us have a ton of trig homework waiting.
Angel: Hey. Is this a bad time?
Buffy: Are you crazy? You don't just sneak up on people in a graveyard. You make noise when you walk. You stomp or... yodel.
Angel: I heard you were on the hunt.
Buffy: I'm supposed to be, but... lazybones here doesn't wanna come out and play.
Angel: When you first wake up, it's a little disorienting. He'll show.
