Ahem. Sorry. Tiny Evil Chloe tells the girls that evil is coming and "this" is almost over. Can't fool us, though -- we know it's not over until May. Buffy attempts to be brazen, and Tiny Evil Chloe uses Buffy's voice to repeat what she told Wood earlier: "They're not all going to make it. Some will die, and there's nothing that I can do that will stop it." So what, Tiny Evil Chloe? Buffy already told the Junior Misses that to their faces on at least one occasion. "T.T.F.N.," concludes Tiny Evil Chloe, and vanishes from the room. Buffy has to ask what that means, and Rona explains, "It's 'ta-ta for now.' It's what Tigger says when he leaves." Millie adds that Chloe loved Winnie the Pooh. The real Tigger says that, or the stupid Disney one? Because I don't recall the real Tigger speaking in abbreviations. I don't have my childhood copies of Milne's books here with me to check, however. Everybody just stands there staring at the body for a minute longer, and then Buffy, who hasn't lifted a finger at all in this scene or made any effort to mitigate the appearance of the First, snarls, "Dawn, where's that knife?" Oh, get it yourself, bitch.
Buffy buries Chloe in the backyard. I laugh and laugh, because I think to myself, "Just like a dead kitten!" I know, I'm sick and twisted, but it just seemed so much like the funeral of a goldfish or something that only a child would take seriously. Did Buffy put Chloe in a frickin' shoebox? Do you think Dawn will come out in a few minutes with a little cross made out of popsicle sticks for a headstone? I must say, the digging seems to really be wearing Buffy out. Where's that Slayer strength? She's panting and wiping away the sweat. Oh, wait. What's that? You mean she was supposed to be wiping away a tiny tear of sorrow? Whatever.
