Quotes:

  • Buffy: Does Elvis talk to you?
     
  • Nicole: You got a C-plus? I can't believe I cheated off of you.
    Buffy: Excuse me for not knowing about El Salvador, like I'm ever going to Spain anyway.
     
  • Benny: Her yabos scoff at gravity.
     
  • [Benny is floating outside Pike's window]
    Benny: Let me in, Pike. I'm hungry!
    Pike: You're floating! Get outta here!
     
  • Amilyn: We're immortal, Buffy. We can do anything.
    Buffy: Oh yeah? Clap.
     

Trivia:

  • Ben Affleck appears as an extra (a basketball player).
     
  • Seth Green, the only person in the movie to be in the spin-off show, was cut from the movie, but still appears on the video cover.
     
  • In the original version of the script, Merrick committed suicide to escape being turned into a vampire by Lothos, who wanted to know the Slayer's identity so he could kill her.
     
  • Buffy's last name is never mentioned in the movie. Not until the release of the series was she referred to as Buffy Summers.
     

Credits Fun:

  • TV interviews with people at the dance that were attacked by vampires.
     
  • Amilyn revives to go through some more death throes.
