- Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: At the end of the episode we see Marcie in a government run school full of invisible students including her being taught to be assassins. One must wonder if they're perhaps also working on psychic assassins.
- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- Willow presents Buffy with a list of missing students, and Buffy remarks that the most recent student's only activity was band — and that she played the flute. Willow's reaction was intended as confused, but anybody who's seen American Pie can't help but think that her "...So?" looks quite shameful and guilty.
- The final scene of the episode shows Marcie being recruited by the FBI for a special unit using people with special powers such as invisibility as assassins and other secret agents. Fast forward a few years, and Clea DuVall is on Heroes as an FBI agent, recruiting psychic Matt Parkman to help catch superpowered multiple murderer Sylar.
- Jerkass Woobie: Marcie may be a psychopath who engages in attempted murder and mutilation, but it's hard to not feel sorry for her, and how crazy she went from the isolation. A shame she didn't see a similar quality in Cordelia, who reveals herself to be this when she vents about how frustrating and lonely it feels to be "the popular girl."
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Marcie Ross is taken by F.B.I agents to be trained in assassination and espionage. She never appeared again. Then again, it's debatable to see whether she "appeared" at all.
