Joyce: Faith.

Buffy spins around.

Joyce: Why do you think she's like that?
Buffy [shrugs]: You know. She's a nut job. Heh.
Joyce: I just don't understand what could drive a person to
that kind of behavior.
Buffy: Well, how do you know she got drove?
I mean, maybe she likes being that way.
Joyce: I'll never believe that. I think she's horribly unhappy.
Buffy: Well, could be things are looking up. I mean, a little
stint in the pokey, show her the error of her ways.
I'm sure there's some big old Bertha just waiting
to shower her ripe little self with affection.
Joyce: Buffy!
Buffy: I'm sorry, mom. [Sighs]
It's just ufff when I think about how she might have hurt you,
I just, uff I can't stand it.

Joyce hugs Buffy. Buffy is uncomfortable and shrugs lose.

Joyce: Sorry.
Buffy: No, I'm just, uff, sore from the fight.
Joyce: I've missed you.
Buffy: Cause I haven't visited, right? I knew it.
Joyce: I know how it is. You have so much in your life now.
Buffy: I'm a busy little beaver. College and all.
Joyce: Of course. But um, maybe we could spend some time together soon?
Some... night when I'm not being held hostage by a raving psychotic.
Buffy: Count on it. [Pause] I'm gonna take a bath.

She pulls her eyebrows back to look at her eyes.
She sticks out her tongue to look at it.
She pulls her upper lip back to look at her teeth.

Buffy: Why, yes, I would be Buffy. May I help you?
Buffy [sounding]: Buffy.
[She sticks out her tongue again. She adjusts her hair.]

[She shakes her finger.]
Buffy: You can't do that. it's wrong.

[She shakes her head slightly.]
Buffy: You can't do that because it's naughty.

Buffy: [louder] Because it's wrong.
[She tilts head.]
Buffy: [softly] Because it's wrong.

[She points very aggressively.]
Buffy: You can't do that. It's wrong. I'll kick your ass.
I'm gonna kill you.

Faith: She's taken body.
[Faith loses consciousness.]

Cut to Tara's room.

[Willow lying down on a bed.
Tara is sitting crosslegged near her feet.]
Willow: I wonder where she is.
Tara: Who? Faith?
Willow: Yeah. I wish she would make a move. she's making
my stomach all acidy.
Tara: But you think Buffy can handle her.
[Willow sits up.]
Willow: I think so. but that doesn't mean Faith won't hurt someone else.
Tara: Well, you should be safe. nobody knows you're here.
I mean, uf, they don't even know I exist, right?
I know all about them, but...

[Willow puts her hand on Tara's knee for a second.]
Willow [softly]: Hey.
Tara : I-I mean, t-that's totally cool. It-it's good. It-it's better.
Willow: Tara, it's not like I don't want my friends to know you.
It's just... well, Buffy's like my best friend, and she's really special.
And there's this whole bunch of us, and we sort of have this group thing
that revolves around the slaying, and-and I, I really want you to meet them.
But I kind of like having something that's just, you know, mine.
And I, I usually don't se so many words to say stuff that little,
but do you get that at all?

Tara: I do.
Willow: [sighs] I should check in with Giles, get a situation update.

He wanted you to meet your friends there. Said he had news.
Buffy: Yeah. I got some time to kill. [Buffy gets up.]
I'll go see the gang. All my friends.
[Buffy picks up a lipstick.] You don't mind if I steal this, right?

Joyce: Is that the Harlot?
Buffy: Yeah.
Joyce: That's the same one Faith picked.
Buffy: Burn it.
[Buffy tosses it to Joyce who catches it.]

Cut to Faith in the back of a police car with a uniformed
officer driving and a plainclothes office riding shotgun.

[Faith moans almost inaudibly.]
Policeman: She's coming to.
Uniformed Policeman: Yeah.
Policeman: Man, I want this kid's constitution.
Faith: Faith.
Policeman: Let's move it. I want to get her in before she's 100%.
[The uniformed policeman nods.]
[A red armored car/truck cuts off the police car which crashes into it.
Two men in black clothing jump out of the back. One uses a gun to
cover the two police officers, who seem to be stunned. Another
uses an ax to smash the back window. The one with the gun breaks
remnants on the sides with the gun. The ax one drags Faith out
the window.]

Weatherby: By order of the Watcher's Council, you are being
taken into custody until such time--
[They both drag her to the back of the armored truck.]
Collins: Skip the speech.
[They pull her in the truck.]
Collins: Let's go.
[The doors close.]


[Buffy enters Giles' home.]
Giles: Buffy. good.
Buffy: The scooby gang's all here.
Willow, Xander, and... [looks at Anya] everybody. What's up?

Giles: It's about Faith, not surprisingly.
Buffy: Didn't Joyce tell you? I already kicked that ass.
Xander: I feel a high five coming on.
Willow: Where is she?
Buffy: On her way to the big house. Cops took her off my
hands about an hour ago. Poetic justice.

Anya: How's that?
Buffy: Well, she did all those crimes, and now she's being arrested.
[Silence.] I guess that's just regular justice. [Willow smiles.]
It's cool, anyway.

Giles: Unless I'm mistaken, Faith is no longer in police custody.
Buffy [stands]: What are you talking about?
Giles: Watcher's Council. They uh sent a retrieval team to capture Faith.
Buffy: Well, yeah, I mean, 'cause it worked so well when Wesley tried it.
Giles: This is a special operations unit. They, uh, handle the council's
trickier jobs - smuggling, interrogation, wetworks.
Willow: What's wetworks?
Xander: Scuba-type stuff.
Anya: I thought it was murder.
Xander: Well, yeah, but there could be underwater murder, with snorkels.
Buffy: So they're taking her to England?
Giles: It'll be a long, long time before she returns.
Buffy: Heh heh heh. ahhh Hah hah. Hah hah. ohhh I'm sorry.
It's just...I'm happy. Faith is evil.

Willow: Yeah. I hope they throw the book at her.
Giles: I'm not sure there is a, a book for this.
Willow: They could throw other things.
Buffy: I forgot how much you don't like Faith.
Willow: After what she's done to you?
Oh, I wish those council guys would let me have an hour alone
in the room with her, if I was larger and had grenades.

Buffy: I bet I know what Faith would say to that.

Buffy springs forward with a knife and sticks it in Willow's stomach
in the same place Faith was stabbed. She pulls the knife out and
stabs Willow again.

Buffy lifts her head from her revery. She did not spring forward.

Anya: So what you're saying is that everything's fine?
Giles: Oh, um, yes.
Anya: Well, I'm glad you called us all here because that information
could never be conveyed by telephone.
Willow [to Buffy]: What's up?
Giles: Well, I just thought it was, uh, best to convene,
in case there were any loose ends
Buffy [to Willow]: I'd never let her hurt you.
Giles: or things that we might have forgotten.
Willow [to Buffy]: I know.
Giles: But if you're, uh, keen to go, then, please, by all means, go.
Xander: We kind of have a romantic evening planned.
Anya: We were gonna light a bunch of candles and have sex near them.
Buffy: Well, we certainly don't want to cut into that seven minutes.
Anya: Hey.
Xander: I believe that's my hey. Hey!
Buffy: Lighten up. We're out of danger. Everything's good.
Giles: We still have Adam to take care of.
Buffy: Yeah. Adam. What's up with him?
Giles: I wish we knew.
Buffy: Well, don't worry about it. I'll patrol tonight, as long as it takes.
You guys have your fun, I'll be out there doing my job.

Cut to Buffy dancing in the Bronze to rock band.

Buffy: Whoop.
Spike: Oh, you.
Buffy: And you.
Spike: What, are you keeping tabs on me?
You're gonna give me a hard time now?
Buffy: Um, do I usually give you a hard time?
Spike: Very funny. Well, you don't have to worry about me drinking.
Unless you're here to protect innocent beers. [He holds up a bottle.]
[Spike walks away a little and Buffy follows.]
Buffy: You're a vampire.
Spike: Was. And as soon as I get this chip out of my head, I'll be a
vampire again. But until then, I'm just as helpless as a kitten up a tree.
So why don't you sod off?
Buffy: Ok.
Spike [angry]: Oh, fine! Throw it in my face! Spike's not a threat
anymore. I'll turn my back. He can't hurt me.

Buffy: Spike? [Gets it.] Spike. William the Bloody with a chip in
his head. I kind of love this town.

Spike: You know why I really hate you, Summers?
Buffy: 'Cause I'm a stuck-up tight-ass with no sense of fun?
Spike: Well, yeah, that covers a lot of it.
Buffy: Cause I could do anything I want, and instead, I choose
to pout and whine and feel the burden of slayerness? I mean, I could
be rich, I could be famous, I could have anything. Anyone.
[Buffy moves closer and puts her hands on Spike's chest.]
Even you, Spike. I could ride you at a gallop until your legs
buckled and your eyes rolled up. I've got muscles you've never
even dreamed of. I could squeeze you until you popped like warm
champagne, and you'd beg me to hurt you just a little bit more.
And you know why I don't? [She moves closer and looks up at him
pursing her lips.] Because it's wrong. Humh humh. [She moves off.]

Spike: I get this chip out, you and me are gonna have a confrontation.
Buffy: Count on it.
[Spike throws his bottle into the wall and walks off. He shoves someone
and clutches his head.]

Cut to the sewers.

Four vampires are walking in vamp face.

Vampire: It was too crowded. We gotta hold out for a few hours,
pick up a straggler, some drunk. Can't be calling attention
to [He sees Adam and stops.] ourselves.

Adam: I've been thinking. About vampires.
Vampire: This is my place.
Adam: You're place. Yes. The sewers. You hide from them,
Crawl about in their filth. Scavenging like rats. What do you fear?

Vampire: Kill this guy already.
[One vampire charges Adam and Adam grabs it by the throat and holds it.]
Adam: You fear the cross. The sun. Fire. And, oh, yes...
[Adams puts his other hand on the vampire's shoulder and he lifts the
vampire's head from its shoulders. The body falls and he drops the
head on it and they turn to dust.]

Adam: I believe decapitation is a problem as well.
Vampire: You can have the place. I mean, we don't have to stay here anymore.
Adam: You fear death. Being immortal, you fear it more than those
to whom it comes naturally. Vampires are a paradox.

Vampire: Ok, we're a paradox. That's cool.
Adam: Demon in a human body. You walk in both worlds and belong to neither.
I can relate. Come. We have a lot to talk about.

Cut to workshed interior?

In the back of the armored truck, Faith wakes up and finds she is

Weatherby: Well, it's awake.
Faith: Who are you?
Weatherby: Council. We're taking you back to the mother country.
Seems you've been a naughty girl.

Faith: Listen to me. Y-You've made a mistake. I am not Faith.
I'm Buffy Summers. Faith performed some kind of spell,
she switched our bodies.

[Standing outside the truck.]
Collins: Congratulations. No one's ever actually tried that one on me before.

Faith: You have to find Faith. C-call Giles. J-just get him here.
Collins: Giles doesn't work for the council anymore. For that matter,
neither does Buffy Summers. And what you are, miss, is a package.
I deliver the package. I don't much care what's inside.
[To Weatherby.] Come on.

Weatherby: He may not care, but I do. The Watcher's Council used to
mean something. You perverted it. You trash. We should have killed you
while you were asleep.

[He spits in Faith's face. He gets out of the truck and closes the doors.]

Cut to the Bronze.

Willow: I can't believe you've never been here. The Bronze is the
coolest place in Sunnydale. Of-of course, there's not a lot of competition.
I think the vending machine at Bergen's came in second.

Tara: Y-you used to come here a lot?
Others: Chug chug chug
Willow: I lived here. Me, Xander...

Buffy & others: Chug, chug, chug.
Willow: Buffy.
Buffy & others: Chug, chug, chug.

Buffy: oooh ooooh
Others: Chug, chug, chug!

Others: Woo hoo hoo.
Willow: Wow. I-I didn't think she'd be here.
Come on, [holds Tara's hand] I want you to meet her.

Buffy: Back off. [Pushes someone away.] You're nothing but a

[Tara crosses her arms.]
Willow: Hey, Buffy.
Buffy: Willow and - uh
Willow: Buffy, this is Tara.
Tara: Hi.
Buffy: So we've never met. [Tara shakes her head.]
Cool. Just have a thing with names.

Willow: Tara was in my wicca group.
Buffy: Unh-huh. [Buffy walks away and they follow.]
Willow: So, what's up? [Buffy plops herself on a couch.]
Patrol a no go? [Buffy throws her legs up in the air and on a table.]

Buffy: Got tired. You know, the whole Faith thing. I let off some steam.
Willow: Good for you. You shouldn't work yourself too hard.
Buffy: That's my philosophy. [Buffy throws her arms behind her head.]
Willow: Anyone want a soda?
Tara [looks at Willow]: Water.
[Buffy shakes head. Willow walks off and Buffy notes Tara looking back
at Willow. She sits up and leans forward.]
Buffy: So you guys been hanging out a lot lately, hunh?
Tara: Yeah. she's, um, she's really cool.
[Buffy nods and blinks slowly.]
Buffy [grins]: So Willow's not driving stick anymore. Who would have thought?
I guess you never really know someone until you've been inside their sking.
And Oz is out of the picture? Oh, never seen two people so much in love.
She just couldn't get enough of old Oz.

Tara: She, um, said he, uh, uh, w-w-w-w-w-went
Buffy: He w-w-w-w-what? You gonna get that sentence out sometime tonight?
[Tara lowers her head.]

[Willow returns.]
Willow: Buffy, guy in the corner.
[Buffy looks at a guy leading a girl.]
Buffy: Yeah. Good call.
Tara: What?
Willow: Vampire.
Buffy: Wicked obvious. [She leans back and realizes Willow is waiting.]
So I should slay him. [She gets up.]
Willow: You want help?
Buffy: Nah, I got it.
[Buffy picks up a pool stick as she walks. She enters a back area where
the vampire is feeding on the girl from behind, making slurping noises
and holding the girl's arms. The girl is gasping. Buffy breaks the pool
stick in two and drops one end. The girls arms flail. Buffy hits the
vampire in the back using the stake as a club.]
Buffy: Hey!
[The vampire lets the girl fall and turns. Buffy blocks a right and a left.
She kicks it in the leg and spins the vampire around and holds it.
She stakes it and throws it to the side just before it dusts.

Buffy exhales and looks down at the girl. She is squatting and
she looks up at Buffy.]
Buffy: You'll live.
Girl: Uh he was so strong, uh
Buffy: Yeah, well, he's gone now. [Buffy turns and the girl grabs her hand.]
Girl: Thank you. **Thank you.** [Expressions flash across Buffy's face.]
Buffy: Yeah. [Shrugs.] It's cool. [Shrugs.]
[Buffy walks off and drops the stake.]

Willow: Everything poofed?
Buffy: All's well in the world.
Willow: Tara's not feeling well. I'm gonna walk her home.
[Willow looks back at Tara.]
Buffy: Yeah. You give her whatever she needs.
[Buffy smiles for a second.]
Willow: Are you gonna be in later, or you going over to Riley's?
[Buffy blinks several times and then smiles.]

Cut to workshed/barn.

Banging sounds in a workshed or barn.
Smith walks toward the armored truck with a syringe.

Smith: This'll bloody keep you quiet.
[Smith opens the back of the truck and goes in.
Faith grabs him and gets him in a chokehold with the chains.]
Smith: Uh.
Faith: How about this? I'll be quiet, and you can scream.
Smith: Aaahh.
[Weatherby and Collins look in from the back of the truck.]
Faith: Now you unchain me - very slowly And! politely, or I kill this guy

Collins: When we go on a job, we always put our affairs
in order first, in case of accident.

Smith: Collins...

Collins: Sorry, Smithy. [They walk off.]

Collins: She's starting to bother me.
Weatherby: Getting her across the border is gonna be a lot more trouble
than it's worth.
Collins: If the council can even get us passage. I'll call them.
It's time for a contingency plan.
[Smith flies out the back of the truck and falls, groaning.]

Cut to Riley's room.

[Riley is sitting at his desk and hears a sound and turns, smiling.
Buffy is standing in the doorway.]
Buffy: Hi, baby.


Cut to Tara's room.

Willow: I'm sorry you're feeling all blechy. But we'll get together
with Buffy another time. Sometime soon. I think you'll really like her.

[Tara sighs.]
Tara: She's not your friend.
Willow: I may have overestimated the "you liking her" factor.
Tara: No, no. I mean, I don't... [sighs] I don't think she's...her.
Willow: You lost me.
Tara: Well, umph, a person's energy has a flow, a unity.
[sigh] Buffy's was [sigh] was fragmented.
It-it grated, like something forced in where it doesn't belong.
Plus, she was, um, [sigh] she was kind of mean. [heh]

Willow: So you think Buffy's not herself? Like she's been possessed
or something?

Tara: [sigh] I'm not sure.
Willow: You didn't sense a hyena energy at all, did you?
Because hyena possession is just...unpleasant.

Tara: [umph] Do you have anything of hers?
Willow: Of Buffy's? Uhhhh. Oh! This ring.
Tara: I-I think there's a way we can, hmm... [reaches for book]
The passage to the nether realm. There-there's a ritual.
If you can find Buffy there, you should be able to see.

Willow: If it'll help her.
[Tara sighs.]
Willow: What?
Tara: Well, the nether realm exists beyond the physical world.
Accessing it is... I-it-it's kind of like astral projection.
It's very intense. I'd have to be your anchor, keep you on this plane.

Willow [nods]: I trust you.
Tara: It-it's not like anything that we've ever--
Willow [smiles]: I trust you.

Cut to Riley's room.

Buffy: You miss me?
Riley: I did, actually. Everything's ok?
Buffy: Everything's great. [walks forward]
Riley: What about Faith?
Buffy: Faith has a won a fabulous trip to England, and I
[sits on Riley's lap, straddling him] got the consolation prize,
which is you.

Riley: So I don't have to worry about Faith showing up?
Though I have to admit, I was kind of curious to meet her.

Buffy holds Riley's hands and leans back, still straddling him.
Riley: Or I was until about 30 seconds ago. [Buffy sits up.]
Buffy: Oh, you wouldn't have liked Faith. She's not proper and
joyless, like a girl should be. She has a tendency to give in to
her animal instincts.

[She kisses Riley and nips his lip.]
Riley: Door's open.
Buffy: So?
Riley: So my fantasies don't tend to include a bunch of marines
staring in at me.
Buffy: Oh, maybe they could learn something.
[She kisses his neck and Riley gets up, walking to close the door.
He holds his left side with his right arm. ]

Buffy: You're hurt. [He closes the door.]
Riley: Ahh, um, not that bad, actually. I guess the, uh, drugs the
professor gave me really did make me stronger. I'm healing pretty quick.

Buffy: Maybe we should take you for a test drive.
Riley: I wouldn't say no. [He walks forward.]
Buffy: do you want me?
[She crawls on the bed looking away from Riley and turns around.]
Riley: How do I?
Buffy: Yeah. what do you wanna do with this body?
What nasty little desire have you been itching to try out?
Am I a bad girl? Do you wanna hurt me?

[She puts her arms on him.]
Riley: What are we playing at here? [She takes her arms off.]
Buffy: I'm Buffy.
Riley: Ok. then I'll be Riley.
Buffy: Well, if you don't wanna play--
[She starts to leave and Riley holds her.]
Riley: Right. I don't wanna play.
[Riley kisses her very gently and she responds.]

Cut to Tara's room.

[Willow closes the curtains]

[Tara puts her thumb on Willow's forehead, lips and chest.]

[Tara and Willow sit side by side facing opposite directions.
They are crosslegged. They whisper while stroking their outer
(right) arms as if to stir water]:
"Sightless sea, Ayala flows through the river in me.
The inward eye, the sightless sea.
Ayala flows through the river in me.
The inward eye, the sightless sea.
Ayala flows {through} the river in me.
The inward eye, The sightless sea.
Ayala flows {through} the river in me.
The inward eye, The sightless sea...
[Light forms from their hands and creates a circle of
clouds/light around them as both arcs meet in two places.]
Ayala flows through the river in me."

[They touch hands palm to palm, keeping their hands flat. They are
breathing heavily and are both sweating and glistening. The circle
of light rises to the level of their heads. Their breathing gets
heavier. They look at each other. Willow slowly falls back, closing her
eyes and breaking the hand contact. The circle of light goes higher
and higher. Willow arches her back and moans "unnh ohh".]

Cut to Riley's room.

[Riley is on top of Buffy, looking down at her.]
Riley: I love you.
Buffy: Uggnnh Get off. No. No. No! [Pushing Riley away]
Get-get off! No. Off me. Get off. No, no-o. G-get [Buffy stands]
Riley: Buffy...What? What's wrong?
Buffy: (gasping) Who are you? What do you want from h-her?
Riley: Should I not have...?
Buffy: This is meaningless.
Riley: You're shaking. [He gets up and puts a blanket/sheet
on her.]
Buffy; Nnnh.
Riley: What happened?
Buffy: Nothing. Nothing.
[She puts her head against Riley's chest and her face goes into shadow.]

Cut to sewers.

[Adam stops pacing.]

Adam: I have a gift no man has. [That] No demon has ever had.
I know why I'm here. I was created to kill. To extinguish life
wherever I find it. And I have accepted that responsibility.
You have lived in fear and desperation because you didn't have
that gift. But it's time to face your fear.

[A vampire sitting cross legged rises.]
Vampire: Tell us what to do.
Adam: You are here to be my first. To let them know that I am coming.
Vampire: We're ready.

Adam: Then ask yourself, what is it? More than man, more than
anything else. What is the thing you fear?

Cut to Riley's room

[Buffy puts on a shirt and fluffs her hair. She sees the clock
reads 8:25 and she looks back between the clock and Riley.
She leaves.]

Cut to Frat house.

[Buffy comes down the stairs.]
Forrest: Hope you left him alive.
Buffy: What?
Forrest: Boy's supposed to be on the mend.
I don't see you letting him get much rest.
Buffy: I think maybe you should stay out of other people's lives.
Forrest: We've got a mission here.
Back when Riley could still think for himself...

Buffy: You've got a mission? I've been fighting demons since
before you could shave.

Forrest: Yeah, you're a killer.
Buffy: I am not a killer!!! I am the slayer!.
And you don't know the first thing about me.

Forrest: You really care what I think?
Buffy: No. I don't care. [Throws hands up.] God, I don't care.
[She leaves and the door closes.]

Cut to inside of barn/workshed.

Collins: They can't get us passage. They've ordered the kill.
[He screws a silencer onto a pistol.]
Weatherby: Torch the place?
Collins: Get the gas.
[Weatherby walks off.]
Smith: She could've killed me. She didn't.
Collins: Lucky you.

[Collins sticks the gun in the truck but Faith grabs the pistol
and his hands with her feet and pulls him into the truck
hard enough to stun him before he can react.
Faith pulls the gun to her hands and shoots the locks/chains
holding her.]

Smith [running away]: Weatherby!
[Faith shoots a lock and smashes into the driver's area.]
Faith: Keys, keys.
Weatherby: Stop her, you ponce.
[Faith finds the keys. Weatherby rushes the truck and Faith
opens the door into him, knocking him out.]

Faith: Ok, I'm good at this.
[She shifts gears.]
Faith: Ooh, drive.
[Smith has found a gun and shoots at the truck but Faith drives the
armored truck out through the wooden wall/door, breaking it.}


Cut to Airport.

[Woman behind counter hands ticket to Buffy.]
Woman: Here, there you go.
Buffy: Thank you.
Woman: You're welcome.

Cut to Giles' living room.

[Giles is coming down his stairs carrying a plate and some cups.]

Faith: Giles!
Giles: God!
Faith: Don't move. Ok, Giles, you have to listen to me very carefully.
I'm not Faith.

Giles: Really?
Faith: Really.
Giles: Cause the resemblance is striking.
Faith: I know. Giles, you just have to... Stop inching. you were

Giles: Look, I-I know what you're going to say, and-and uh
Faith: I'm Buffy.
Giles: All right, I didn't know what you were going to say,
but that doesn't make you any less crazy.

Faith: Faith switched. I mean, she had some device. She switched
our bodies. Giles, I swear [runs hand through hair] it's me.

Giles: U-um, if-if you are Buffy, then, [sets plate & cups down]
uh, then you'll let me tie you up w-without killing me -
until we find out whether you're telling the truth.

Faith: Giles, Faith has taken my body, and for all I know,
she's taken it to Mexico by now. I-I don't have time for
bondage fun. Ask me a question. Ask me anything.

Giles: Who's president?
Faith: We're checking for Buffy, not a concussion.
Giles: Oh, yes, Alright. um...
Faith: Umph, Giles, you turned into a demon, and I knew it was you.
I mean can't you just look in my eyes and be all intuitive?

Giles: How did I turn into a demon?
Faith: Oh, cause, uh, Ethan Rayne. And-and you have a girlfriend
named Olivia, and you haven't had a job since we blew up the school,
which is valid lifestyle wise. I mean, it's not like you're a slacker
type, but...
Oh, oh! when I had psychic power, I heard my mom think that you were
like a stevedore during sex. What? Do you want me to continue?

Giles: Actually, I beg you to stop.
Faith: What's a stevedore?
Giles: Alright, let's-- um, I need you to explain everything.
Faith: And I will, after we get Faith.
[Willow and Tara enter.]
Willow: Giles!
Faith: Will.
Willow: Oh, my god.
Faith: Willow, wait. you don't understand.
Willow: You're Buffy. You and Faith switched bodies, probably
through a Draconian Katra spell.

Giles [to himself]: She understands it better than I do.
Faith: How did you?
Willow: Tara. Tara, this is Buffy, only really this time.
Tara: Hi.
Willow: Tara's a really powerful witch.
Tara: Not really.
Willow: No, really. She knew right away that you weren't you.
So we connected with the nether realms to find out what happened.
And we conjured this. [Shows green glowing item in box.]
Faith: What is--
Willow: It's a Katra. Or the home-conjured version.
It-it should switch you back, if you can get a hold of Faith.

Faith: Oh, thank God.
[telephone rings]
Giles: I'll get it.
Giles: Hello.
Faith: Do you know where Faith is?
Giles: Oh yes, uh, Buffy's here with uh, me. Actually, she--she's uh
Oh, all right.

Giles: Xander. Apparently there's a report on the television.
[Giles turns on the tv.]
News announcer: ...and barricaded themselves in the church
with at least 20 parishioners.
One of the few who escaped described the three men
as frighteningly disfigured, almost inhuman.
So far, one escapee has since died of severe neck wounds.
[Cut to airport.]
[Buffy sees the report on another tv.]
News announcer: There is no report on the condition of the
parishioners still trapped inside, but their assailants have vowed
to kill all of them [Buffy looks down, then back up at the screen]
if police attempt to storm the church.

Interior of church.

Vampire: It's hard to believe. I've been avoiding this place for so
many years, and it's nothing. It's nice! It's got the pretty windows,
The pillars... lots of folks to eat.
Where's the thing I was so afraid of?
You know, the Lord? He was supposed to be here.
He gave us this address. Well, we'll just have to start
killing off His people, see if He shows up.

Exterior of church.

[Sirens. Two police cars and an ambulance are parked outside.
There are four uniformed policemen and possibly one in plainclothes.
One has just put down a radio.]

Riley: What'd he say?
Policeman: He said I should defer command to you.
Riley: Then you hold your men until the reserves arrive.
This is a military situation.

Policeman: What, they got bombs in there?
Riley: Your men are not prepared to deal with them. Just trust me.
[Siren. Riley walks nearer the church. He sees...]
Riley: Buffy.
Buffy: How many are in there?
Riley: We think there's three.
Buffy: I can do three. [Riley tugs at her arm.]
Riley: Not alone. Look wait for the troops to get here.
They're still mobilizing.

Buffy: How did you respond so fast?
Riley: I didn't. I was just late for church.
[Buffy shakes her head.]
Buffy: Look, when the troops get here, send 'em in, but I'm going.
Riley: I don't want you risking-- [Riley tugs at her arm.]
Buffy: Don't tell me what to do! I'm Buffy. I have to do this.
Riley: Then I'm coming with.
[Buffy pokes Riley near which he is hurt.]
Riley: Ow!
Buffy: I can't use you. someone comes out, you get 'em to safety.
Unless they've got fangs.

[Buffy enters the church.]

Cut to interior.

[Buffy closes the door.]

Vampire: I told the cops, they send any one in, I start the whole
massacre thing.

Buffy: Well, I'm not the cops. I just come to pray.
Vampire: now's a good time to start.
Buffy: You're *not* gonna kill these people.
Vampire: Why not?
Buffy: Because it's wrong.
[Vampire 3 attacks from behind and is thrown up in the air
He collides with a column and he doesn't get up.]

Vampire: You're the slayer.

Buffy: The one and only.

Cut to outside.

[Giles is driving the armored truck. It stops and Willow, Tara and
Faith jump out of the back.]
Policeman: You people, get out of here!
Willow: We've gotta get inside.
Policeman: The police are handling this. Just back off right now.
Willow: But we can't, we've gotta, Y- you don't understand.
[Giles and Faith exchange a glance.]
Policeman: Listen you have to clear the area.
Giles [yelling]: Damn it, man, we have to get inside.
[Faith moves out of sight behind the armored truck.]
Our, um, uh uh families are in there.
Our, um, mothers and-and tiny, tiny babies.

Cut to church interior

Vampire: You think we're afraid of you? We're not afraid
Of anything anymore.

Buffy: Then let all these people go, and all three of you can take me on.

Vampire: Heh. I got a better idea.

[He swings at Buffy and she dodges and hits him in the stomach,
backhands his face and kicks him in the waist. He goes down.
She kicks anothervvampire in the stomach and knocks him back.
Then she kicks the vampire who hit the pillar and sends him flying.
She drives the second vampire back with a series of punches as people flee.
She breaks off some wood from the back of a pew and stakes the
second vampire. She tosses him aside and he spins as he turns to dust.
The vampire who hit the pillar flees and grabs a robe.]

Cut to outside.

[The pillar vampire runs into Riley. They fall and roll. They get
up and he hits Riley in the face. Riley spins him and throws him
down and holds onto the robe. The sunlight dusts him.]

Riley: You forgot your coat.

[Faith runs up.]
Faith: Riley.
{Faith hugs Riley.]
Riley: Ohh. It's ok, miss. Just get yourself out of harm's way.
Faith: Riley, it's me. Uh. Never mind. How many are in there?
Riley: Well...who are you?

Inside the last vampire breaks the stake lose from Buffy's grip
and throws her back against a pew.
Vampire: I have strength you couldn't dream of. [Punches Buffy in
the face.] Adam has shown me the way, and there is [Same punch.]
nothing --aah.

He turns to dust. Faith is standing there with a stake. Buffy
leaps to attack. They exchange punches and Buffy is attacking
frenetically and she is slightly quicker. She knocks Faith down
but Faith comes back with an uppercut and knocks her back.

Faith: You can't win this.
Buffy: Shut up! Do you think I'm afraid of you?
[Buffy grabs Faith and throws her down, then sits on top of her
and starts punching her.]
You're nothing. [Punch. Punch.]
Disgusting. [Punch. Punch.]
[Buffy grabs Faith's hair with both hand and bangs her head.]
Murderous bitch. [Bang. Bang...] You're nothing. [Bang. Bang...]
[Switches back to punches] You're [Buffy is now crying.] disgusting.
[Faith grabs Buffy's hand to stop a punch and their hands glow.]

Now Buffy is in her own body. And Faith is in her own body.

[The real Buffy falls back as their hands separate.
The real Faith jumps up and runs off. The real Buffy sits,
stunned or shocked, and watches her leave.]

Cut to Riley's room.

[The real Buffy hangs up phone. She is sitting on the
bed. Riley is sitting in a chair.]

Real Buffy: She's gone. not a trace.
Giles said the council guys have cleared out, too.

Riley: I don't understand. how could she have... ummph
I mean, how's it possible?

Real Buffy: Magic.
Riley: There was something. I should've picked up on it.
I should've just...

Riley looks away, not meeting real Buffy's eyes. She realizes.

Real Buffy: You slept with her.
Riley [looks down]: I slept with you.
[Buffy stands.]
Riley: Man, would I like to get my hands on her.
Not in a sex way.
Real Buffy: I don't think she's coming back.
Riley: Guess she's had her fun.
Real Buffy: Yeah. Fun.

Briefy real Buffy's face and real Faith's face are superimposed
together on the screen as real Buffy fades out and real Faith
fades in.

[Real Faith is riding in a rail car with wooden sides. Train track
sounds are heard.]

~~~~~~~~~~~ Prologue ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

**Transcriber's notes: Tonight, the role of Buffy Summers will be
played by Eliza Dushku. For the sake of this transcript, the
transcriber will refer to Faith-in-Buffy's-body as just Faith and
Buffy-in-Faith's-body as just Buffy.

Fade in. Night. Exterior shot of the Summers home, shortly after
“This Year's Girl” ended. Several police cars are out in front of the
house, strobing the neighborhood with their red lights. An ambulance
is parked on the lawn, it's rear doors open and facing the house. A
few curious neighbors have also gathered. A plainclothes detective
(same one from last episode) is talking to the young woman he thinks
is Buffy Summers. They're standing close to the steps of the front
porch. Joyce Summers is walking out of the house and drapes a coat
around her daughter's shoulders.

Detective: It's good you called. We've been looking for this girl
since she broke out of the hospital.

Joyce: What's going to happen to her?

Detective: Well, get her checked out. If she's in stable condition,
she goes to jail, pending trial.

Joyce: I just hope she gets some kind of help.

Behind them, the paramedics are wheeling a gurney out the front door.
Faith's body is strapped to it. She's barely conscious.

Detective: The first thing is to keep her from hurting anybody else.

As it's taken past Joyce and her daughter the brunette looks at them
with half-opened eyes. From her blurring POV she sees the younger
blonde take her mother's hand and lift it, casually, to make sure she
sees this. Then her vision fades as she loses consciousness. The
paramedics load her into the ambulance.

Detective: Well, you guys will be safe now. We may have a couple of
questions in the morning.

Joyce: Oh, uh, of course.

Detective: Thank you both. I'm glad we finally got the kid.

Faith: (sharply) She's not a kid. (sees the detective's surprised
look) I just mean that she's very strong.

Detective: Yeah. This Faith chick-- definitely dangerous.

With that, the detective turns and walks toward one of the squad cars.
Joyce heads back into the house, but Faith stands there watching the
ambulance pull out of the drive way.

Faith: She truly is.

Faith turns, in her new body, and starts walking back to the house.

Wolf's howl. Buffy theme and credits roll.

~~~~~~~~~~~~ Part One ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fade in. Interior of the Summers home. The last of the police have
left and Joyce is closing the front door. Faith is casually walking
into the living room stretching her arms.

Joyce: Faith.

Startled, Faith spins around to face her, slight panic on her face.
But Joyce has a thoughtful expression.

Joyce: Why do you think she's like that?

Faith: (offhandedly) Well, you know. She's a nut job. Heh.

Joyce: I just don't understand what could drive a person to that kind
of behavior.

Faith: Well, how do you know she got drove? I mean, maybe she likes
being that way.

Joyce: I'll never believe that. I think she's horribly unhappy.

Faith: Well, could be things are looking up. I mean, a little stint
in the pokey, show her the error of her ways. (slight grin) I'm sure
there's some big old Bertha just waiting to shower her ripe little
self with affection.

Joyce: (shocked) Buffy!

Faith: (oops) I'm sorry, Mom. It's just . . . (crosses the room to
Joyce playing “concerned daughter”) when I think about how she might
have hurt you, I just . . . I can't stand it.

Touched, Joyce smiles and gives her a big hug. Over her shoulder we
can see Faith grimace in discomfort at this mushy affection. She
pulls away and heads towards the stairs.

Joyce: (slightly hurt) Sorry.

Faith: (makes of show of stretching her shoulders) No, I'm just, uh,
sore from the fight.

In front of the stairs, she faces her.

Joyce: I've missed you.

Faith: 'Cause I haven't visited, right? (smug) I knew it.

Joyce: I know how it is. You've . . . got so much in your life now.

Faith: I'm a busy little beaver. College and all.

Joyce: (nods) Of course. (hopefully) But, um, maybe we could spend
some time together soon? Some night when I'm not being held hostage
by a raving psychotic.

Faith: (pause) Count on it. (smiles) I'm gonna take a bath.

She turns abruptly and heads upstairs.

Cut to Faith in the tub, having a bubble bath. She sighs with her
eyes closed. Then she raises her arms out of the water to examine
them. She lifts her left leg straight up to look at it and smiles,
caressing it with her hands. Faith lowers the leg back in the water
and scoops two handfuls of suds and blows the bubbles into the air.

Cut to Faith looking at Buffy's reflection in the mirror, from the
mirror's POV. Her hair is hanging wet on her shoulders and she has a
towel wrapped around herself. She turns her head to the right then to
the left. She leans towards the mirror for a closer look and
scrunches her face. She relaxes her features then uses her index
fingers to push her eyebrows high on her forehead. Next, she opens
her mouth wide to stick her tongue out. Again she uses her index
fingers to raise her top lip, looking at Buffy's very white teeth.

Cut to a few frames later, still in front of the mirror. Faith is
speaking in a pleasant “stewardess” voice.

Faith: Why, yes, I would be Buffy. May I help you?

Cut to a few frames later.

Faith: (practicing) Buf-fy.

Cut to Faith sticking her tongue out again, head tilted to the side.

Cut to Faith running her fingers through Buffy's wet hair, then puts
forth an admonishing finger as if speaking to a child.

Faith: (scolding) You can't do that! It's wrong.

Cut to a few frames later.

Faith: (sensitive) You can't do that, because it's naughty. (grimaces)

A few more frames.

Faith: (stern) Because it's wrong.


Faith: (empathy) Because it's wrong.

Another cut. Faith is walking a few feet away from the mirror then
suddenly whips around to face it, pointing at it with her hand in a
gun shape.

Faith: (bad-ass tone) You can't do that! It's wrong! I'll kick your

Cut to same shot. Still pointing at the mirror.

Faith: I'm gonna kill you!

Cut to Faith leaning closer to the mirror as a voice-over of evil
laughter is heard and we--

Cut to the hospital. We see a burly male nurse come crashing across
the room, hitting the counter, and he falls to the floor. He just had
his ass thrown.

Faith's voice: (OS) Let me go! Let me go!

Camera pans and we see who appears to be Faith thrashing in a bed
trying to free herself from the men who are holding her down. The
doctor hurries away from the bed as a police officer, the detective,
and two orderlies restrain the young woman. It's all they can do to
keep her on the bed.

Doctor: Get me a sedative, NOW!

Detective: Hold her!

Buffy: (yelling) I have to go home! She's with my mother!

The doctor returns and clamps a hand on her arm to still it and shoves
a syringe needle into her vein.

Buffy: NO!

Doctor: Just lie still.

Buffy: (weakening voice) You don't understand.

Detective: Keep holding her.

Her struggles quickly lessen as the drug takes effect.

Buffy: (fading) She's taken my-- my body.

Unable to keep her eyes open her head falls back.

Cut to Tara's dimly lit room. Willow is laying on the bed, hands
folded across her stomach. Tara is sitting on the other side of the
bed reading tarot cards.

Willow: I wonder where she is?

Tara: Who? Faith?

Willow: Yeah. I wish she would make a move. She's making my stomach
all acidy.

Tara: But you think Buffy can handle her?

Willow sits up to face her.

Willow: I think so. (worried) But that doesn't mean Faith won't hurt
someone else.

Tara: Well, you should be safe. Nobody knows you're here. I mean
. . . they don't even know I exist, right? I know all about them, but
. . .

Willow: Hey.

Willow puts a gentle hand on Tara's knee. Tara continues in a “no big
deal” tone.

Tara: I mean, I mean, th-that's totally cool. I mean, it-it's good.
It's . . . it's better.

But Willow can see through this.

Willow: Tara, it's not like I don't want my friends to know you. It's
just . . . well, Buffy's like my best friend, and she's really
special. And . . there's this whole bunch of us, and-and we sort of
have this group thing that revolves around the slaying, and-and I-I
really want you to meet them. But I-I just kinda like having
something that's just, you know . . . mine.

Tara regards her silently for a moment.

Willow: And I-I usually don't use so many words to say stuff that
little, but (laughs softly) do you get it at all?

Tara: I do.

Willow takes a deep breath.

Willow: I should check in with Giles, get a situation update.

She gets up and rounds the bed to the other side of the room behind

Tara: I am, you know.

Willow stops to face her.

Willow: What?

Tara looks over her shoulder at her.

Tara: (meaningfully) Yours.

Willow just smiles at this.

Cut to Buffy's bedroom. Faith is standing in front of the full-length
mirror checking out Buffy's reflection. She's dressed in a long,
sleek black tank top and black leather pants and boots. Buffy's hair
is in wavy curls (her “Something Blue” hair). Reaching into the
shirt, she adjusts Buffy's breasts to a more perky position then puts
her hands on her hips to inspect the improved cleavage.

Faith: Not too bad.

Faith turns to Buffy's dresser and begins to search it. In the first
drawer she opens she finds Buffy's passport and flips through it.

Faith: Score.

Cut to Joyce's room. Faith i
