At Hemery I was Prom Queen, Fiesta Queen, I was on the cheerleading squad — the yearbook was, like, a story of me. Now it’s senior year and I’m going to be one crappy picture on one eighth of one crappy page.

Sunnydale High Yearbook refers to the yearbooks from Sunnydale High School.


In 1996, Marcie Ross received only “Have a nice summer” messages on her yearbook from her colleagues, including Alexander Harris and Willow Rosenberg.[1]

In 1997, Buffy Summers used Marcie’s previous yearbook to find out about her and her plans. According to Buffy, Willow, and Xander, receiving only “Have a nice summer” messages on the yearbook was a signal of not having friends, being what one writes when there’s nothing to say.[1]

In 1998, while Buffy was waiting in Principal Snyder’s office, a 1955 yearbook falls off the shelf, as a manifestation from James Stanley and Ellen Frank’s ghosts. Buffy uses the book to identify both based on her dreams.[2]

In 1998, Sunnydale High students, including Willow, Xander, Daniel Osbourne, and Cordelia Chase, took their pictures for the yearbook, but Buffy missed it.[3]

In 1999, Willow, Harmony Kendall, and other members of the class of '99 exchanged yearbook messages before the Ascension.[4]

In 1999, Buffy used Harmony’s yearbook picture to locate her.[5]

In 2002, an amnesiac Cordelia used her own book to find out about her identity.[6]
