Xander immediately starts freaking about his ill-timed "Daddy" comment of a moment ago, and Will considerately leans over and says, "Right there with ya." Heh. See? Now this is the type of "Gay now!" sentiment that won't set my teeth on edge. Buffy and the gang watch in horror some more as Dawn writhes on the dance floor. The song ends, and an unsuspecting Dawn strides right by her sister's table. Buffy pulls Dawn aside to deliver a lecture on the evils of premature teen hip-waggling. Furthermore, she is just shocked and appalled at the way Dawn is dressing. And she should know, considering that she used to consider approximately a bandanna-sized amount of cloth appropriate school attire. At least Dawn is wearing pants, y'know? Predictably, Dawn throws a teenage snit and attempts to brush past Buffy to rejoin RJ. Buffy vetoes that plan, so Dawn grabs her coat and flounces right on out of there. But it's more of a bitchy flounce than a whiny flounce, so at least she's moving up the evolutionary flouncing ladder.
Outside, Dawn stalks down the street until one of the cheerleaders steps into her path, saying, "I know what you're doing, Slut. I saw you with RJ," all Children of the Corn delivery. What follows is the lamest catfight in the history of catfights. I mean, there isn't even any hair-pulling! What's a catfight without a handful of yanked-out hair extensions? The weird thing is, this lame little flail-fest is shot just the same as a normal fight. Buffy pulls the two hormonal teens apart. Cheerleader kicks Buffy in the shin and prances off, calling out one last threat over her shoulder.
