* RedHerring: Buffy's workplace has nothing to do with the MonsterOfTheWeek despite its zombie-like staff or creepy vibe -- the demon is only a customer and the "secret ingredient" is actually a soy product.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Loads of this starting with [[DoubleEntendre the name]] [[TwinThreesomeFantasy of the restaurant]] and eventually ending with a demon shaped like... Well, imagine an eight-foot-long [[Franchise/{{Alien}} chest]][[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic burster]] with no arms and an even larger, rounder forehead, which spits thin streams of pale fluid (and was defeating by a lesbian cutting it off to save her [[TheParalyzer helpless]] female friend from it, although it is doubtful that that was the intended {{Subtext}}). The fact that the "Buffy At Work" The Making Of documentary used a clip of Buffy watching a video of "[[{{Gorn}} the cow and chicken coming together for the first time]]" (the back of a television emitting frantic moos and clucks was all that was shown of that part of the worker orientation video) when a ''Series/{{Buffy|The Vampire Slayer}}'' writer who worked for a video store was talking about pornography, especially with [[MixAndMatchCritters the Doublemeat mascot]], implies that the [[InterspeciesRomance doublemeat subtext]] was intentional. (But despite that, who ''doesn't'' want [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter one of those hats, or a plush toy of the mascot]]?)
