At the groundbreaking ceremony for a new cultural center, Xander accidentally releases Hus, a Native American vengeance spirit, looking to payback the “white settlers” who took his people’s land. Meanwhile, Buffy just wants to have Thanksgiving with the people she loves, but she must figure out who Hus is going after next. She also must deal with a “helpless” Spike, who arrives at Giles‘ apartment seeking help. When Angel — who has secretly arrived in Sunnydale to help Buffy — tells Buffy’s friends that Hus is going after Buffy, they rush back into a war between Buffy and a band of Native American spirits. When the battle is over, everyone (including a tied up Spike) sits down and enjoys a nice meal — until Xander lets it slip that Angel was in Sunnydale. — Short synopsis by Anthony C. Blade.

Buffy (staking a vampire): And they say one person can’t make a difference.
Buffy (about construction-working Xander): Very manly. Not at all Village People.
Anya: I love a ritual sacrifice.
Buffy: Not really a one of those.
Anya: To commemorate a past event you kill and eat an animal. A ritual sacrifice… with pie.
Anya: Soon he’ll be sweating. I’m imagining having sex with him again.
Buffy: Imaginary Xander is quite the machine.
Xander (after falling into an old mission): I’m OK, I’m OK! … Where am I OK?
Willow: It’s a turvy-topsy world.
Buffy: It is a sham, but it’s a sham with yams. It’s a yam sham.
Willow: You’re not gonna jokey-ryhme your way out of this.
Xander: You’re a strange girlfriend.
Anya: I’m a girlfriend?
Xander: Um… there’s a chance I’m delirious.
Willow: The coroner’s office said she was missing an ear, so I’m thinking maybe we’re looking for a witch. There’s some great spells that work much better with an ear in the mix.
Buffy: That’s one fun little hobby you got there, Will.
Buffy: It was pretty darn scary. It was more like a riot than a Ralphs. I thought I was going to have to use Slayer moves on this one woman who was completely hoarding the pumpkin pie filling.
Willow: Hey, and later we can churn our own butter and make sweaters out of sheep.
Willow (leaving Buffy and Riley alone): Look, they’re selling coffee in coffee shop. Yum.
Willow (to Angel, muffled by his hand over her mouth): Evil! You’re all evil again!
Harmony (to Spike): I’m powerful, and I’m beautiful, and I don’t need you to complete me. And you’re mean!
Giles: Yes, always behind on terms. I’m still trying not to refer to you lot as ‘bloody colonials.’
Willow: You know, I don’t think you want to help! You just want to slay the demon and go ‘la, la, la.’
Willow: Angel? I saw him too.
Giles: That’s not terribly stealthy of him.
Willow: I think he’s lost his edge.
Giles: That’s why I think we should all keep a level head at this.
Willow: And I happen to think that mine is the level head and yours is the one things would roll off of.
Spike: What part of ‘help me!’ do you not understand?
Buffy: The part where I help you.
Spike (on his implant): I’m saying that Spike had a little trip to the vet, and now he doesn’t chase the other puppies anymore.
Spike (regarding Xander): Oh, leave that one! He looks like he’s ready to drop any minute, and I think I can eat someone if he’s already dead.
Buffy (trying to console the Indians): You can have casinos now!
Anya: So this is Angel. He’s large and glowery, isn’t he?
Angel: I’m not evil again. Why does everyone think that?
Willow: Angel’s here to protect Buffy.
Angel: I haven’t been evil for a long time!
Anya (about Angel): What’s he like when he is evil?
Spike: A bear! You made a bear!
Buffy: I didn’t mean to!
Spike: Undo it! Undo it!:
Willow: But at least we all worked together. It was like old times.
Xander: Yeah, especially with Angel being here and everything… Oops!
