Retro Recap: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, S4.E21 — “Primeval”

This isn’t your business. It’s mine. You, the Initiative, the boys at the Pentagon… You’re in way over your heads. Messing with primeval forces you’ve got no comprehension of… I’m the Slayer. You’re playing on my turf.

Retro Recap: Buffy the Vampire Slayer S4.E20 — “The Yoko Factor”

Retro Recap: Buffy the Vampire Slayer S4.E.17 — “Superstar”

Buffy: Anya, tell them about the alternate universes. Anya: Oh, okay. Um… say you really like shrimp a lot. Or we could say you don’t like shrimp at all. “Blah, I wish there weren’t any shrimp,” you’d say to yourself – Buffy: Stop! You’re saying it wrong.
