The Pack

-The Heimlich, with stripes.
-I hated field trips. I always got car sick.
-Africa quarantines never really work.
-The Hyena symbol would make a neat tattoo.
-That Xander/Hyena face is awesome. Even vamp Xander didn't have that face.
-Angel is never around. Sounds familiar.
-Funny sniff!
-Based on Buffy's strength, Giles would be a broken man after any training session.
-Hope Xander learned geometry before he became a contractor...?
-Who did invent dodgeball as a school sport activity?
-At least the pack acknowledge Buffy is stronger.
-With Xander in charge of the pack, was he the strongest of the group or just the inherently meanest?
-Heartbroken Willow. :(
-Love the "Scully me" statement.
-Yummy bacon!
-Primals were animal worshipers. Sounds ripe for making a slayer.
-Buffy likes her men dangerous and mean.
-The pixie red head looks way to old to be a teenager.
-Bye, bye Principal Flutie.
-Convenient the library has a cage. Soooo useful.
-Shouldn't that damn town have a curfew?
-Where's that beeper now?
-Giles out again!
-Xander saves Willow.
-Bye, bye Zookeeper.
-Such a liar...
-Buffy the California cat burgler.
-Giles did proper research, this time. Took him long enough!

The "Kids"
Eion Bailey ... Kyle DuFours ... 20 (Went on to Band of Brothers & ER)
Michael McCraine ... Rhonda Kelley (as Michael McRaine) ... Couldn't find her age but she was definitely looked to old for the part.
Brian Gross ... Tor Hauer ... 20
Jennifer Sky ... Heidi Barrie ... 20 (Went on to General Hospital, Xena, and Cleopatra 2525)

The "Adults"
James Stephens ... Dr. Weirick/Zookeeper ... 46

Interesting exchange...Giles from the transcript:

Well, apparently there's a, a sect of animal worshipers known as Primals. They believe that humanity, uh, consciousness, uh, the soul, is a, is a perversion, a dilution of spirit. Uh, to them the animal state is holy. They are able, through trans-possession, to, to, um, draw the spirit of certain animals into themselves.


This is the first episode where someone is locked in the library cage and the first where Buffy is sexually assaulted when Xander attempts to force himself upon her. It is also the first story where one of the Scooby gang goes evil.
