Buffy walks in to the kitchen and sets her bag on the counter. She slides it over to Dawn, but Dawn isn't exactly thrilled. And who could blame her? Cold, congealed fast food? Not appealing. Cold, congealed fast food that's been out patrolling in a graveyard and then in the vicinity of Spuffy sex? Especially with what appears to be your big sister's ass print on it? Even less appealing. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's endangerment of a minor. Dawn gently explains that she can't eat any more fast food. Buffy promises to bring home fish nuggets tomorrow. Willow comes in and comments on the grass stain on Buffy's coat. Willow assumes that it's from slaying vamps, but we all know it's from laying them instead. Buffy herself almost slips and gives it away, then sighs that she has to wash her coat now. Willow suggests that Buffy forget about it and go hang out at the Bronze with the gang and Dawn. Shouldn't Dawn be, y'know, grounded? Buffy tells them to go and have fun without her. They try and cajole her, but Buffy thinks that she's "had enough action for one night." After they leave, Buffy turns to a full sink of dirty dishes. Why is it that Buffy seems to be the only one capable of doing any chores? Did the gang pull a fast one on her? Maybe when she was fresh out of the grave and a little confused, they took her aside and fed her a fat pack of lies. "Buffy, you're the chosen housekeeper. Only you possess the strength needed to combat the grime and filth and evil dust bunnies of the world. This is your destiny!"
Bronze. Xanya sit at the bar and argue about the seating chart. And I can't believe I'm even saying this, but thank all that is holy that the wedding is next week. Now I won't have sit through any more wedding planning "humor." Anya gets on Xander's case about his snarfing of a nearby bag of chips, saying that he won't be able to fit into his tux if he keeps it up. Jeez. Rude much? Granted, I'm not calling Xander fat, but I will say that if you mathematically calculated The Area of Xander in season six and compared it to The Area of Xander in season three, you'd probably have enough extra Xander to make a mini-Xander. I do wonder if it's Nicholas Brendon's way of making sure that he gets the maximum amount of screen exposure. "If I can't be in most scenes, then by GOD I'll be in as much of the scenes that I am in as possible." Anya snatches the bag away and begins munching herself. Xander blows a bit of a gasket, listing all the things that need to be taken care of as well as other incipient stresses, and finishes with a "and do NOT take my chips!" Xanya glare at each other. Dawn, unaware of the tension, skips up with a cheery greeting, but when they both snap at her, she goes to deliver a drink to Willow instead. Willow is in an extremely chipper mood, due to the fact that if she were to call Tara, Tara would not hang up on her. Uh. Yay?
