Added DiffLines:

* ExactlyWhatIAimedAt: As a training exercise, Giles blindfolds Buffy, hands her a ball, and asks her to throw it at him. She throws it in the wrong direction, he starts to wax sarcastic, and the ball bounces back and hits him in the head.
--->'''Giles:''' It's not that simple, is it-- (''ball bounces off his head'') Ow.

Added DiffLines:

** When the candy is handed out for sale, Buffy asks Snyder for advice "before we go all Willy Loman here" (yet another ShoutOut to ''Theatre/DeathOfASalesman'' - Whedon seems to love this play).

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: Giles (by the sound) cocks the gun when he points it at Ethan, and Buffy appears to put it in her belt still cocked—not a great idea.



* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Ethan somehow gets away ''again'', despite being handcuffed. Wilkins wants to know what Trick did with him; Paid for services rendered, Trick shrugs. Buffy presumably ditched Ethan at the factory, and someone released him later.

** Giles steals a gun from a police officer which Buffy takes away and places in her belt. Its fate is never revealed (though given Buffy's occasional comments about how much use a gun is in her work it's doubtful she kept it).

** One of Cordelia's leftover [[{{Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS3E5Homecoming}} homecoming queen flyers]] is hanging in Xander's locker.
** It becomes obvious that the real reason Buffy isn't allowed to drive is because Joyce doesn't want her taking off again. Buffy cracks that she could [[{{Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E22BecomingPart2}} just as easily get a bus ticket]]. Joyce is unamused.
** Angel asks after [[{{Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS3E5Homecoming}} Scott]], apparently not up-to-date on Buffy's social life. Buffy needs a moment to recall who that is, then hem and hews about everything being "fine."

* RescueSex: Ripper ends up beating the crap out of a cop and taking the gun as Joyce bats her eyes at him. The two proceed to make out (and perhaps more) on the hood of the policeman's car.

* BrainlessBeauty: Teenage Joyce wasn't exactly an intellectual prize-winner, coming off as petulant, impulsive and easily led. However, she is still rather sweet at heart, her maternal instinct coming out with the babies.



* ConspicuousCGI: Lurconis' animation kind of shows its age.



* ConvenientlyTimedAttackFromBehind: Ethan notices a crowbar on the desk in front of him, and picks it up and sneaks toward Buffy, whose back is turned. Giles comes out of nowhere and presses the gun to Ethan's neck, execution style. Whoops.
