But this has to be true: someone, somewhere, happened to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the first time -- and that episode that person first saw was "The Body."

Wrenching, full of hurt and loss and rage at something as unfair as what happened to Joyce in that episode, and someone saw it with, perhaps, no preparation at all for "Mom? Mom? -- Mommy?"

Edit, edit, edit (10/26 edition): Actually, based on the thoughts in the comments, this probably didn't happen as I imagined it might. I still wonder what such a viewer's reaction was like...
