Cut to a teenage boy running through the woods. He's being pursued by something that's growling very menacingly. He trips and falls, and his pursuer grabs his feet and drags him away screaming. Credits.
Willow is saying that she disagrees with Faith's assessment of men as she, Oz, and Buffy walk up the school's outdoor staircase. We hear a "Hey, Buffy!" and Scott feys up to them, followed by a couple introduced to us as Debbie and Pete. Scott is wearing a yellow shirt. Do high school boys wear yellow? Debbie and Oz know each other, as she asks him, "You're not doing jazz band this year?" Oz says no, because of the marching, and Buffy wonders that there's a marching jazz band at all. Oz: "Since the best jazz is improvisational, we'd be going off in all directions, banging into floats -- scary." Willow: "He's just being Oz." Oz: "Pretty much full-time." So. Damn. Cute. Buffy compliments the flowers Debbie is holding, and Debbie announces that Pete got them for her. Pete, in the most smarmy-annoying voice possible, says to Buffy that he's sure Scott does that kind of thing for her. Scott nervously asks, "Are we up to flowers? Did I miss flowers?" Don't worry, Scott; you'll be getting plenty of flowers in the future, I'm sure. Buffy assures him that they're "pre-posy." Then Buffy checks the time and says that she has to go see Mr. Platt, the school counselor, one of the conditions for Buffy's return to school laid out by Principal Snyder in "Faith, Hope, and Trick." Debbie says that Mr. Platt creeps her out, and she only goes because she's failing senior bio and her teacher wants her to go. Didn't school just start? Oz tells her that he aced that final. Willow: "And how did you do that? Oh, right, you showed up." Aw. He offers to give her his notes. You know, it's been a long time since I was in high school. However, I'm betting it's been longer for Marti Noxon. So I'm baffled again -- do any high-school students actually keep their notes for a class they had the previous year? Sigh. It's Oz, though, and he can do no wrong in my eyes. Debbie is grateful for the notes. Buffy leaves, but not before she and Scott share the most chaste kiss since Darrin and Samantha on Bewitched. They show Scott with a look on his face like, "So that's what it's like to kiss a girl. Interesting. Now where's that Larry guy I've been hearing so much about?"
