Buffy comes around a corner in the school and finds the guy and girl, still in their argument. The girl turns to flee, and the guy shouts after her, "Don't walk away from me, bitch!" Buffy runs towards him, and somewhere nearby the school custodian hears the racket and puts down his mop. Buffy attacks the guy and knocks the gun out of his hand while the janitor checks the girl to see if she's okay. After Buffy hauls the guy up off the ground, he stammeringly asks what happened. Buffy is outraged and yells that he "just went O.J." on his girlfriend, but the guy has no idea why he was so angry. His girlfriend backs him up, saying they weren't even fighting a few minutes ago. Buffy wants to know why the guy had a gun, but he has no idea, and the custodian, who is Bugsy from Perfect Storm in his once-per-century Hollywood appearance, looks around and says, "I don't see any gun." It's a little cool to recognize Bugsy, but I'd rather it was George Clooney or William Fichtner. ["Mmmm. Agreed. Note to Joss: Fichtner would make a fabulous vampire. Just something to think about for the fifth season..." -- Sars]
Establishing exterior shot of Sunnydale High. A guy walks by who seems to have been given Xander's skateboard and wallet chain from season one. Guess those were just languishing in the dusty depths of the costume department. Principal Snyder enters his office and closes the door. He snaps, "What would Sunnydale High do without you around to incite mayhem, chaos, and disorder?" but Buffy insists that she actually prevented the guy from killing his girlfriend. Squinting his already squinty little eyes, Snyder tells her he thinks the witnesses were "coerced," and that he's working on looking at the whole situation until he "knows exactly how this is all your fault." Snyder then exits to deal with "pathetic little no-life vegan" Billy Crandall, who has chained himself to the snack machine, but not before telling Buffy to stay put and that she "stink[s] of lies." Hee. A Sunnydale yearbook dated 1955 slides from the bookshelf behind Buffy and plops to the floor. She merely shrugs and returns it to its place, because Buffy has no interest in books -- even the kind that are mostly pictures.
