Potential - S7-E12

Trivia: Obvious with hindsight, but less so at the time. Kennedy is later revealed to be gay, and her interest in Willow is hinted at but not stated outright. However, when all the potentials are playing with the weapons, Rona grabs a stake, saying "I like the feel of wood in my hand". Kennedy arrives mid-way through that line, and says "lost me there". Possibly her thinking it's just a "middle of the conversation" comment, or just a blatant indicator of her sexual preference.

Tabula Rasa - S6-E8

Trivia: The episode, Tabula Rasa, is very aptly named. Tabula Rasa (Latin) means 'blank slate' (which refers to being born 'blank' and that intellect and behavior only comes from experience and perception) and is appropriate since the characters lost all their memories due to Willow's spell.

Touched - S7-E20

Spike: You listen to me. [Kneels in front of her.] I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. I don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you. [Buffy looks away; he reaches toward her face.] Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say, "I love you, " it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy.
Buffy: [Quietly.] I don't wanna be the one.

Homecoming - S3-E5

Question: In this episode Oz says "As Willow goes, so goes my nation". Is this a variation on a famous quote, and if so, which?

Jon Sandys Premium member

Chosen answer: "So goes the nation" seems to have been used on many occasions, with various different US states in the "As .... goes" section. Most commonly it seems to be California that's considered to lead the way, but probably most other states have appeared in the lead role at some point or another. Other things have also been used - no less a person that Pope John Paul II said "As the family goes, so goes the nation...". The origin of the quote format is unclear - in US politics it goes back into the 19th century, when it was Maine that held the title spot, but, while no definitive origin is known, it seems highly likely that it goes back considerably further than that.
