WILLOW: "Do you have 'Theories in Trig'? You should check it out." /
XANDER: "'Check it out'?" /
WILLOW: "From the library -- where the books live."
"We all need help with our feelings. Otherwise, we bottle them up, and before you know it, powerful laxatives are involved."
"It's devastating. He's turned into a 16-year-old boy. Of course, you'll have to kill him."
GILES: "Something's coming, something, something, something is - is gonna happen here. Soon!" / BUFFY: "Gee, can you vague that up for me?"
Other: High school students spend their free time at a teen club, but no alcohol is consumed. In fact, alcohol consumption isn't even mentioned, suggested, or implied throughout the entire season. There is some mention of girls that are smokers, but it is never shown on-screen.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Jump scenes and grotesque monster make-up are used throughout and may scare those that are young and/or particularly sensitive.
Sexual Content: Other than some inoffensive elements of high school romantic relationships and adolescent crushes, the first season is fairly devoid of sexual innuendo. The most daring implications made are verbal in the episode, "The Pack".
Violence: A sixteen-year-old girl is a vampire slayer, and so, she slays vampires, which involves stabbing them with a stake and such, and they then turn to dust. Blood is depicted, but very rarely; even when people are bitten in the neck, there is little to no blood shown.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Buffy Summers arrives in Sunnydale after her expulsion from her old high school in L.A. for burning down the gym. Despite trying to escape her duty as a Slayer, she finds herself back behind the stake when she meets what become the Scoobies (her new Watcher, Giles; smart but shy Willow Rosenberg; and, funny and friendly Xander). Together, they fight the many creeps thrown at them, both mystical monsters and standard high school monsters.
