Responsibility sucks. And sometimes, there's no avoiding it. You are what you are. You do what you do. For newly minted fifteen-year-old Buffy Summers, that means being the Slayer — a protector against the demons that shadow mankind. Or on this night, a fate worse than that… a Friday night stuck dragging her little sister around the Santa Monica pier!
- Dawn mentions Buffy has been down since she burned the school gym down (The Origin, Part Three), ran off with Pike (Broken Parts), and was committed to an asylum (Slayer, Interrupted, Part One).
- Angel watches over Buffy from afar, which he's been doing since he first saw her in "Becoming, Part One" and will continue by A Stake to the Heart, Part Three. She first meets him in "Welcome to the Hellmouth".
