"A lot more heart. We’re given some crazy scenarios but we do our best to make them real." Where’s Buffy when you need a werewolf put down? Go watch "The Body" an episode that has more heart than Teen Wolf’s entire series thus far. That’s just one out of a ton of episodes filled with a beautiful blend of supernatural, reality and heart.

"Giles, I’m 16 years old… I don’t wanna die."

"Do you think I chose to be like this? do you have any idea how lonely it is? how dangerous? I would love to be upstairs watching TV or gossiping about boys or god even studying. but I have to save the world… AGAIN!"

"If it’s guilt you’re looking for Buffy, I’m not your man. All you will get from me is my support and my respect."

"I don’t know how to live in this world if these are the choices. If everything just gets stripped away, I don’t see the point."

"Death is your art. You make it day after day. Part of you is desperate to know whats it like. Where does it lead you? Every slayer has a death wish. Even you."

"No weapons, no friends, no hope. Take all that away and what’s left?" "Me."

"You’re just a girl?" "That’s what I keep saying."

"The hardest thing in this world is to live in it. Be brave, live."

Season Three, Episode Thirteen:  The Zeppo

Time for another near-Apocalypse in Sunnydale, but this one’s a little different.  Xander, the resident normal (aptly compared to Jimmy Olsen a few times in this episode) takes center stage and totally outshines the drama of an opening Hellmouth.  We’ve seen it before and we’ll see it again, but this episode is one of the few that really focuses on Xander’s feelings of inadequacy.  Sure, he’s full of jokes and come-backs, but we all know that deep down, he’s just trying to find his place among the super-powered Scoobies.  It’s a great episode 1: because it’s relatable and 2: because it offers a nice, light-hearted break from the non-stop drama that is Buffy’s life.

  • Xander loses his virginity to Faith.  It’s not magical.
  • The multiple-headed Hellmouth monster makes it second appearance since Prophecy Girl, but yet again, we don’t really care.
  • Who actually refers to building a bomb as “baking a cake?”  Am I too suburban for this kind of lingo?  Also, Jack got killed in a drive-by?  Is there actually an even worse part of Sunnydale?  Geeze.
