Thursday Thirteen - Funny Buffy

Thirteen Essential Funny Buffy Episodes
(single episodes not 'continued')

1. Pangs - Thanksgiving goes horribly awry when the gang is hunted by a Chumash Indian Warrior. Xander get's the funny syphillus and Buffy determines whether ther eis enough blood in gravy to satiate a recently Initiative escaped Spike. "What's a ricer?"

2. Life Serial - It's hell getting a job, worse when the evil Troika are screwing with you. The episode culminates with a very drunk Buffy watching Spike play poker... for kittens. "They're Delicious!"

3. Restless - Everyone's dreams are screwed up, mostly this is hilarious. The production of Death of a Salesman is great, Spike as carnival attration equally so. "It's like a greek tragedy."

4. Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered - Magic never ends well, doubly so when you try to make your ex love you and instead every woman falls in love with you except her. Poor Xander, just another in a long line of bad relationshyip mistakes. "I intend revenge, pure as the driven snow."

5. Superstar - In an alternate universe Jonathon is everything and everywhere. Buffy is barely a scoobie, until the spell Jonathon worked starts to wear off. "Sure, alternate realities. You could uh, could have like a world without shrimp. Or with, you know, nothing but shrimp."

6. Something Blue - Willow's will becomes true. Giles goes blind, Xander is a demon magnet and Bluffy and Spike are engaged to be married. Ahh sweet chaos. "Honey, we need to talk about the invitations. Now, do you wanna be William the Bloody, or just Spike? 'Cause, either way, it's gonna look majorly weird."

7. Him - Everyone's been suspicious of the magic of a letter jacket wearing quarterback at one time or another. Maybe those suspicions weren't unfounded. Even Willow comes under his spell and tries to make him a girl! One of the funniest episodes ever. "Oh, my God! I'm the pushy queen of slut town!"

8. Triangle - Anya and Willow fight over Xander. Anya's ex, a troll, shows up and causes trouble. "That's insane troll logic."

9. Band Candy - Ethan Rayne returns to make candy that turns adults into full blown teenagers, complete with irresponsibility and illegal shenanigans. "Giles at sixteen? Less Together Guy, more Bad-Magic-Hates-The- World-Ticking-Time-Bomb Guy."

10. Tabula Rasa - Willow accidentally wipes out everyone's memory, cos as we all know, magic turns out good rarely. So we get to follow the adventures of Joan the Vampire Slayer and her replacement scoobies. Did I mention the loan shark, who is an actual shark? "Randy Giles? Why not just call me 'Horny Giles,' or 'Desperate for a Shag Giles'? I knew there was a reason I hated you!"

11. Fear, Itself - Warning, fear demon shown actual size. "Don't taunt the fear demon, it's just tacky"

12. Halloween - Ethan Rayne's first appearance turns everyone into their costume, turning Buffy into a useless princess. Willow finds her inner hottie. "Who is that girl?"

13. Dopplegangland - Alternate Reality Vampire Willow ends up in Sunnydale when Anya tries to get back her powers. Vamp Willow is skanky, and kinda gay. "Well, did you try looking inside the sofa *in Hell*?"
