  1. The Body is an amazing episode full of great writing, great performances, and great direction. Everything works together to make the episode so beautifully devastating no matter how many times you’ve seen it. In fact, I’d say that The Body is so powerful that even if someone had never seen an episode of Buffy before and had no idea who the characters were, this episode would still make them cry.

    It feels weird using the word “favorite” in regards to The Body. But my favorite moment from this episode has always been Anya’s “I don’t understand” speech. As devastating as everything else in the episode is, there’s just something about that particular moment that’s always gotten to me.

    Also, I don’t think there’s anything sadder than Sarah Michelle Gellar’s wide-eyed delivery of the word “Mommy”. Kills me every time.

  2. All I need to think are the lines: “Mom. Mom. Mommy…” and my eyes well up, just like they are now…
