Angel lurks, Willow feels guilty, Buffy makes a bear and Xander gets the funny syphilis. But the episode really belongs to Spike, who graces us with his feelings about Thanksgiving:
"I just can't take all this namby-pamby boo-hooing about the bloody Indians ... You won. All right? You came in and you killed them and you took their land. That's what conquering nations do. That's what Caesar did, and he's not going around saying, 'I came, I conquered, I feel really bad about it.' The history of the world is not people making friends. You had better weapons, and you massacred them. End of story."
