Buffy, firmly: "It doesn't say anything about you."
Willow: "I mean, I thought I was really falling..."
Buffy: "Hey, did you forget? The one guy I've had the hots for since I moved here and he turned out to be a vampire."
Xander: "Right, and the teacher I had a crush on? Giant praying mantis."
Willow, perking up: "That's true."
Xander: "That's life on the Hellmouth."
Buffy: "Let's face it. None of us are ever going to have a happy, normal relationship."
Xander, grinning: "We're doomed."
Willow, matching grin: "Yeah."
[Everyone laughs, then the laughter peters out and they all stare off into space, digesting their fate as the screen cuts to black.]
Dude. That was episode *eight*. Joss really wasn't afraid to plan long, was he? Poor kids.
