Xander has gone home to Anya, who is clad in an ill-fitting pair of silk retro pajamas. In a giant shout-out to MBTV's Buffy boards, he delivers an impassioned speech about his love for her. "I gotta say something 'cause I don't think I've made it clear. I'm in love with you. Powerfully, painfully in love." Well, I can see "painful," since it is Anya and all. "The things you do, the way you think, the way you move. I get excited every time I'm about to see you." Umm, Xander honey, that's a little too much information. Anya's eyes fill with tears (as do mine, 'cause Xander's just so damn sweet and Nick Brendon is really selling this speech). "You make me feel like I've never felt before in my life. Like a man." Awww. I don't buy it one bit, but awww.
Buffy returns home and sits on the stairs in her dark house. Um, who's watching Dawn at this point? Buffy thinks, and we see Riley in the chopper, looking pensive and beetle-browed. Smell ya later, Clenchy McLockjaw.
