Buffy (and Xander) at their best: „Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered“

Screenshot „Buffy the Vampire Slayer“ S02E16

After posting my 20th anniversary tribute to „Buffy the Vampire Slayer“, I just encountered my favorite episode in the first two seasons (so far): „Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered“ – which starts with this cute dialog (in a graveyard):

Xander: Well, this is new territory for me. I mean, my valentines are usually met with heartfelt restraining orders.
Buffy: She’ll love it.
Xander: I wish dating was like slaying, you know? Simple, direct, stake to the heart, no muss, no fuss.
[Vampire shoots out of grave, attacks Xander, gets slayed by Buffy.]
Buffy: Sorry to say, Xand. Slaying is a tad more perilous than dating.
Xander: Well, you’re obviously not dating Cordelia.

Wikipedia’s synopsis:

In this episode, Cordelia breaks up with Xander after her friends mock her. Xander retaliates by attempting a love spell to „put her through the same hell“, and he gets a little more than he had bargained for.

Buffy goes to Bollywood: „So, how does the water buffalo fit in again?“

with one comment

„Buffy the Vampire Slayer“ turned 20 this March – and, revisiting the first two seasons, I think it has aged quite nicely.

I just ran across a funny exchange in the „Reptile Boy“ episode (S02E05), featuring Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and Xander (Nicholas Brendon) watching a Bollywood song & dance scene together:

Xander: Is she dying?
Buffy: I think she’s singing.
Xander: To a telephone, in Hindi. Now, that’s entertainment. – Why is she singing?
Willow: She’s sad because her lover gave her 12 gold coins. But then the wizard cut open a bag of salt and now the dancing minions have nowhere to put their big maple fish thing.
Xander: Uh-huh. – Why is she singing?
Buffy: Her lover? I thought that was her chiropractor.
Willow: Because of that thing he did with her feet? – No, that was personal.
Xander: And we thought just because we didn’t have any money or any place to go, this’d be a lacklustre evening.
Willow: I know, we could go to the Bronze, sneak in our own tea bags and ask for hot water.
Xander: Hop off the outlaw train before you land us in jail.
Buffy: I, for one, am giddy and up. There’s a kinda hush all over Sunnydale. No demons or vampires to slay. I’m here with my friends. – So, how does the water buffalo fit in again?
