Top 5 Scoobies Moments:
1. The Final Moment with The Original Four - “Chosen”
BUFFY: So, what do you guys want to do tomorrow?
WILLOW: Nothing strenuous.
XANDER: Well, mini-golf is always the first thing that comes to mind.
GILES: I think we can do better than that.
BUFFY: I was thinking about shopping. As per usual.
WILLOW: Oh! There’s an Arden B. in the new mall!
XANDER: I could use a few items.
GILES: Well, now aren’t we gonna discuss this? Save the world to go to the mall?
BUFFY: I’m having a wicked shoe craving.
XANDER: Aren’t you on the patch?
WILLOW: Those never work.
GILES: Here I am, invisible to the eye…
XANDER: See, I need a new look. It’s this whole eye patch thing.
BUFFY: Oh, you could go with full black secret agent look.
WILLOW: Or the puffy shirt, pirate slash—
GILES: The earth is definitely doomed.
Why I Love It:
I have problems with Season 7. Hell I even have problems with this episode, “Chosen”, but the final conversation between the original 3 is my favorite Scooby moment of the entire series. I don’t watch this show for the monsters and the vampires and the weekly apocalypses, I watch it and love it because I love these characters I love spending time with them. So I love this last moment where they pause before this final battle and act like they are just normal friends and flashes back perfectly to the first episode. But God is Xander’s stupid eyepatch hard to ignore.
YES. this parallel is beautiful. Joss, you master the art of making me feel.
